GLOSSYBOX Review + Coupon Code – March 2013

Disclosure: If you make a purchase through the links posted below, I may receive a small compensation. Read the full disclosure.

I was excited to see my March GLOSSYBOX in my mailbox today!  My mailbox was actually crazy packed with boxes today, but I opened GLOSSYBOX first!

The Box

I’m skipping past the outer box this month.  If you want to see what it looks like, check out some of my other GLOSSYBOX reviews.  I am still loving the GLOSSYBOX boxes.  So fancy.  And yeah I keep these too ;).

First Look

As always, I am loving the GLOSSYBOX packaging.  So pretty.  I don’t know why everyone doesn’t package boxes like this.  So gorgeous.  I should mention that I never got any shipping notification on my GLOSSYBOX.  It just appeared.  I even looked in my account last night for a tracking number.  Nothing.

The Information Card

The March GLOSSYBOX theme is “Spring Fling” and this month’s box is all about “renewal – updating your look, refreshing your skin”.  GLOSSYBOX hopes that the items selected will help you shake off winter and add a Spring to your step!  How fitting that my box came on the first day of winter.  Now, if only they could make it stop snowing here.

Okay, on to the good part.  Here’s what my box included:

~Elite Paris Matt Liner (Matt Brown) ($15): Elite Paris is an offshoot of Elite Models and is based in France.  This liquid eyeliner is waterproof and long lasting and is not black or teal like I have gotten in prior months / subs.  I welcome the change from the normal black eyeliner for sure!

Elite Models Liner

~Koh Gen Do Cosmetics Oriental Plants Emollient Cream ($35.13): Since this retails for $123/1.06oz, it is certain I will love it.  It contains vitamin A and botanical extracts which keeps your skin “dewy” and nourished from dryness.  I really like the sounds of this!  I think some people got a lip liner instead of this cream, but I am loving that I got this!

~Model Co Cheek + Lip Tint ($24): GLOSSYBOX let out a spoiler earlier in the month that this would be included in all boxes this month and I knew I had to get this month.  I am so excited to try this and see how it stacks up to my Benetint.  And I was very impressed by the size of this. For some reason I thought it would be tiny.  Not at all!

~Prestiche Essential Oil Bar Soap (Indie Dreaming) ($16.99): I don’t usually use bar soap, but this has me interested enough that I may give it a try.  I love the scent and also that it’s made from all-natural ingredients hand selected by “seasoned botantists, herbalists and cosmetic gurus”.  The box also includes a $40 gift code to spend at Prestiche.  I’m not going to include it in the value of  the box since you will have to pay shipping, but I am totally using this to try one of their other products!!!

~Sebastian Professional Shaper Fierce ($2.41): Ohhh, I love this!  I hate lugging around a giant can of hair spray on trips, so this is going to come in very handy.  Hopefully it works to keep those crazy post baby fly-aways in place!

Sebastian Professional Shaper Fierce

All totaled, I came up with a value of $93.53.  And that doesn’t even include the $40 gift certificate!  I’d say that’s an amazing deal considering that I only paid $21 for the box!

Did you get a March GLOSSYBOX?  What’d you think?  If you regret not ordering, there’s still time to get in on the March box.  Click here to sign up and don’t forget to use code “SPRING” to get a free OPI nail polish!

    I subscribe to birchbox and I have been looking into glossybox! The only thing that has held me back in the past is the price, but it looks like you get your money’s worth!

    They Shipped! I hope I get the cream over a lip liner too…nice box 🙂 I’d pay $21 just for that cheek and lip tint if it’s anything like benetint.

    Wow. That’s some expensive cream! I love their sample sizes, so I’m SO tempted to try them out. I personally feel Birchbox keeps getting smaller and smaller samples, but their points keep me going so I can get full size items. Ugh, so many decisions lol,

    I thought this box was much better than last months- even though it had so much hype. I liked these products much better than the snail mask 🙂

    I am looking into subscribing to a beauty sampling company. Can anyone please provide me with good suggestions of which worked and which others are not worth the investment?

    My favorite product in this box is the ModelCo Cheek + Lip Tint! I would love to try it!

    You sold me on Glossybox!! I just cancelled my subscription to Birchbox, which, in my humble opinion, SUCKS! The samples are so freaking small, and in the last two months, items were missing, so GOODBYE Birchbox, HELLO GLOSSYBOX! Thank you for your review!!!!
