January 2014 Glossybox Review


What is Glossybox? How would you like to receive five surprise luxury beauty products delivered to your doorstep each month? Each month Glossybox curates a box of five luxury travel-sized beauty products for you to lather, blend, soak, spray, buff, and groom with. Indulge and experience luxury at its finest for just $21 a month! Here is what the January box had waiting for me inside!


The January 2014 box featured the original beautyblender with cleanser, Bellápierre Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Desert Rose, TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray, Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream, and Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash.

the original beautyblender with cleanser

So apparently this is a very popular beauty product. I had never heard of it, but I am glad I had the chance to try it. This makeup applicator leaves a  flawless look. It was created by celebrity makeup artist Rea Ann Silva. To use, just remove your dry beautyblender from its canister, completely saturate your with a generous amount of cold water until full size is achieved, then squeeze out excess water. You are now ready to use it to apply foundation, concealer, blush and more. I use a makeup sponge everyday, so this was something I was definitely interested in trying. I really liked the fact that it is latex free, and made from hypoallergenica foam. It was easy to use and it did leave me with a nice and even finish. I like the pointy tip for hard to reach areas!

Bellápierre Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Desert Rose

I used to use mineral makeup exclusively, now I dabble in it here and there. I was impressed by this creamy, super sheer all mineral blusher that gives you a beautiful, healthy tone that looks natural. Bellápierre Mineral Blush creates a soft, radiant glow for perfect fresh-faced rosy cheeks. The color is fantastic! The perfect mix of peach, pink and bronze. Love it!

TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray

I love using sea salt spray on my hair for a messy, wavy look. This TONI&GUY version is no exception. What I like more about this brand than others I have used, is that fact that it still leaves my hair manageable. Some sea salt sprays make your hair so stiff you can't do anything with it on day two. This version creates texture and body with light hold - perfect for achieving a lived-in, beach look. 

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream

This couldn't have arrived at a more perfect time. I have been feeling like my face has been dry lately. I don't use a moisturizer because I am very picky about scents and texture that go on my face. But I was feeling so drenched that I gave this a try, and I was quite pleased. It does not have a strong scent so that was good by me. But what impressed me most was the texture. It was silky and not heavy or sticky at all. This fortifying and soothing moisturizer delivers 48-hours of continuous hydration for dry, dehydrated skin. It visibly improves skin’s radiance and texture, and prevents signs of premature aging with antioxidants.

Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash

This uplifting super toning body wash has been designed to improve skin tone, soften, smooth and encourage good circulation thanks to the unique blend of natural active ingredients found in juniper, bergamot, geranium and lavender. My favorite thing about this body wash is the scent. It smells so lovely and invigorating! Perfect for me because I am not a morning person! This gentle formulation will cleanse without striping the skin of its natural oils. 


I am so impressed with my first Glossybox! There really was not one product that I won't use. Are you ready to try Glossybox for yourself? It is only $21 a month, and as you can see, you get your money's worth. It is a great way to try new beauty products that you wouldn't want to purchase in full size without trying.
