Follow Up: May 2012 Glossybox US

I started writing this post a few days ago and in the process I realized that Glossybox just isn't for me. They may be for me again one day but at as things stand I don't feel that for the price point they are offering the best possible products and services. With that said I have cancelled and but will still be doing follow ups on the boxes I did receive just so you guys can see the pros and cons of this subscription.

Lets go over the items and check out what I thought of them and if they got used.

Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Refreshing Hydra-Gel
This product smells very nice and it's fragrance is long lasting which isn't something I really look for in a face product. I used maybe half of this but sadly it was making me break out extra so I'm assuming it was because of it's high fragrance content. On the skin it did feel really nice and had I not been broken out by it I would have liked to continue using it. I ended up having about half of this product left over.

Phyto Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Mask for Dry Hair
I've used a lot of Phyto products in the past and I really like their company. This product moutisrized my hair really well without wieghing it down. It doens't have a scent per say tho other than kind of plant like. I used all of this product.

Burberry Beauty Lip Mist Natural Sheer Lipstick in Copper No. 202
I really like this color but have not gotten much use out of it for the summer months. I will for sure wear it in the fall as it's a lovely color but for me it's more of a fall shade.

Zoya nail polish in Rory
This is probably my favorite part of this box, the color is very pretty on and I've worn this probably 5 times or so now.

Marvis Whitening toothpaste
I did try this out and I found it was quite frothy and felt a bit weird in my mouth. That said I have not been using it my boyfriend likes it tho so he's going to take it on his trip with him. It tastes really nice I just can't get over the frothy-ness of this product.

Overall I really liked 3 out of the 5 products which is pretty good for a sample box. I would say that this box particular was one of the better boxes I received from Glossybox.

What do you guys think would your have kept Glossybox or cancelled?

I'll have another Glossybox follow up coming up next week.


  1. Oh, I am loving that Zoya color! And that lipstick will be perfect for fall! Thanks for the comment about the camera situation! You are the best! So lucky to have great blog friends who can help me out! Happy weekend!
    Giveaway @ Because Shanna Said So

    1. Anytime Shanna let me know if you have any questions my bf knows all about cameras.

  2. If things don't shape up next month, I'm jumping ship too! It's just too expensive a service to not love or even like every month.

    1. I'm just so fed up with the shipping and having to wait that it's not even worth it to me to keep it. The price isn't helping it very much either for all the issues they have.

  3. Good to know! I was wondering if theirs was any better than Birch Box. Thanks for sharing have a great weekend!

    New Follower!

    1. I would really hold off until they get it together.

  4. I have heard a lot of people are cancelling for the same reasons that you are. I had high hopes for them! What a bummer!

  5. Thank you so much for sharing!!!^^


  6. I am still a fan of glossybox, and I did like the toothpaste! I am sorry the boxes weren't exactly what you had hoped for and I know that you had some issues with billing. Hopefully it can be resolved soon!

  7. A deal isn't a deal if you don't use the products..... this is a general shopping lesson I am constantly reminding myself of!

  8. Frothy whiting toothpaste is a no-no! Glad you liked that nail polish. I L-O-V-E good polish, honey!

  9. Haven't tried/heard of these products, but hate that you didn't feel most of them. I am glad that you liked the polish though. Also, frothy whitening toothpaste is a "NO ma'am!" :)
