GLOSSYBOX Review + Coupon Code – April 2013

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

Much to my surprise, my April GLOSSYBOX arrived today.  Why I am surprised you ask?  Because my USPS tracking says my box is still in New Jersey.  Not that I mind of course.  I am quite pleased to get the box early!

The Box

As always, GLOSSYBOX ships via USPS and comes in one of the cutest / prettiest boxes out there.  I always love seeing it in my mailbox!

The Box in the Box

While I LOVE the GLOSSYBOX boxes themselves, I am even more in love with this month’s U.K. GLOSSYBOX box.  If you live over there and didn’t get one, you missed out.  I’m not even talking about what’s in the box although that was great too.  Just the box itself.  Seriously.  Check it out.

First Look
Second First Look

I say it every month, but opening a GLOSSYBOX really is like opening a present.  It’s always packaged so beautifully and you can totally tell that someone puts a lot of care into each packing these boxes!

The Information Card

The April GLOSSYBOX theme is “Work That Beauty” and is bringing us feel good products that will help out after a long winter!  Also, in honor of Earth Month, the GLOSSYBOX magazine is online only (you can find it here)!  Love that!

~TIGI Glow Blush (brillance) ($22): When I saw that this was in the box (GLOSSYBOX usually releases a spoiler each month and this was it for April) I was just kinda meh about it.  But now that I have it in my hands and got a chance to test it out, I am thrilled! It’s a great color (way better than my picture shows) and goes on very smooth!

TIGI Glow Blush

~Bvlgari Tea Bag for Bath ($9.50): I have never heard of tea bags for the bath, but this sounds quite interesting.  I don’t like overly smelly baths or really baths in general, but I heard this scent is amazing, so why not?  Plus, I like the idea of it being in a little bag because I can’t stand when your bath “thing” doesn’t melt all the way you know?  This make clean up easy!

Bvlgari Tea Bag for Bath

~Alterna Haircare Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousles Texture Mist ($4.45): This spray gives you “just-back-from-the-beach” waves and I am itching to test it out.  It gets amazing reviews and I feel like I should just buy an entire bottle right now!

Alterna Haircare Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousles Texture Mist

~The Honest Company Organic Lip Balm ($3.65): I have posted about my love for both The Honest Co. and lip balm multiple times, so of course I love this.  I was a little surprised to find it in my GLOSSYBOX, but I’m not complaining.

The Honest Company Organic Lip Balm

~Wash With Joe ($1.75):  This smells….interesting.  I have never used a coffeemint scented shower gel, but if it really does help wake you up more quickly, I just may start.

Wash With Joe

~Le Metier De Beaute ($13.24): I will not like this, I will not like this…..  I am going to tell myself that over and over and over again because this is $225/1.7oz.  Oh my!  However, I am guessing I will end up loving this because, well, how could I not?

Le Metier De Beaute

All totaled, the April “Work That Beauty” GLOSSYBOX has a value of $54.59!  Since GLOSSYBOX is only $21/month, that’s a pretty darn good deal!!! They always have high-end products and have yet to disappoint me with a box!

Did you get GLOSSYBOX this month?  What’d you think?  If you are interested in signing up or just want to learn more, click here.  Oh wait, there’s MORE!  GLOSSYBOX wants to give one of you a free 3-month subscription!!!  All you gotta do is enter in Rafflecopter below and you’ll be all set.  U.S. Residents only (with the exception of Alaska and Hawaii since GLOSSYBOX doesn’t currently ship there).  The giveaway ends 5/3/13 at 11:59pm.  Best of luck!

  1. Tara

    Would love to try the blush and bath tea!

  2. Katelyn Pelletier

    This Glossybox looks fantastic! Haha I’m always nervous to try expensive product samples too because I don’t want to fall in love with something I couldn’t realistically buy!

  3. Alicia

    ahhh!! how do I pick just one item that I want to try??? I think I will HAVE to go with the hair spray to make beach waves! I love beach hair but I’ve never had a product that worked :(. The waves usually end up falling out after I scrunching it.

  4. Angela

    I can’t wait to try the Alterna Beach Waves spray and the expensive face cream. If we buy it before I think May 5th there is a coupon on the sample or something right? If you love it make sure you love it before than lol thanks for the giveaway!

  5. Shannon

    I Want To Try The Coffee Body Wash. I Think It Would Smell Awesome.

  6. Riann

    I would looove to try the Le M?tier de Beaute cream! I have never tried the brand but have heard it is amazing!

  7. Toni

    The blush

  8. Kellie

    I am so excited to try the bodywash and bath tea/bag?

  9. Stephanie

    I have been very intrigued with Honest Co. so I think this lip balm would be the perfect way to try the company out and get me hooked.

  10. Katy

    I would love to try the blush!

  11. Meredith

    I received the Le Metier De Beaute in a previous glossybox and LOVED it!!! Of course I’m not going to pay $225 for the full size tho. I canceled my subscription to glossybox this month, so I’m sad to see that they gave out another sample of this 🙁

  12. Sara

    I’ve always wanted to try this subscription!

  13. Jayden H.

    The organic lip balm! I love trying new lip products!

  14. jmd

    This looks like a good box. I keep hesitating on signing up so a 3 month gift would be great! I would love to try the cream – as you say, may be the only chance I get to try a cream worth over 200$!

  15. Jill

    I want to try that tea bag!

  16. Alena

    I got the box yesterday and I haven’t actually tried anything yet!! I can’t wait to try the hair “spray.” I enjoy glossybox but of course cancelled it like all of my other subscriptions!! 🙂 (by the way, I absolutely loved the UK box too!!!)

  17. Shelby

    Ooo I’d love to try out the blush.

  18. Jenny

    This box looks great. I’d love the blush and wow the replenishing cream is expensive. My girlfriends and I were talking the other day about how much is our max on a makeup product. I’m thinking about $100 but just not sure. Hard to think that there isn’t something cheaper that works just as good. LOL

  19. Abby

    I think, out of everything, I would most like to try the beach wave spray, because I’ve been dying to try Bumble & Bumble’s but it’s SO expensive!

  20. Jillian

    The Alterna Haircare Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousles Texture Mist is amazing! My friend introduced it to me last summer and I’m obsessed with it.

  21. Maggie

    This box always looks amazing!!! I wish I could splurge on the $21/month!!!

  22. Maggie

    Oops! I didn’t say what I wanted to try! I’d love to see what the boho texture mist is like!

  23. Annie

    I think I would LOVE Glossybox–so far ipsy and Birchbox are kind of meh for me, but I guess I’m getting what I pay for!!

  24. Megan

    I would love to try the tea bag for the bath…what fun!

  25. Jessika

    I would so love this!!! Thank you again for such great giveaways!

  26. Jennifer Frank-Lopez

    I fell in love with the replenishing cream from Le M?tier when we recieved it in the Man Repeller box so I’m super excited to get to try it again in this months box.

  27. Lauren

    I’m a big fan of the Glossybox box as well! You say your a hoarder or of info cards, well I”m a hoarder of boxes! I have tons of them! Lol…. that and bags. Especially Victoria’s Secret bags (not the paper ones but the cloth totes ya know?) Every time they (or any company) as the sale “Spend X amount of money and get a free tote/bag ” I immediately spend the money so I can get the bag! Ridiculous, I know… I can’t help it! (Plus I just ordered a 4 pack of totes/bags on, I seriously don’t know why …. I need an intervention)

  28. Pilar Buford

    I would love to have some lip balm

  29. Kayla

    This looked like a great box! I’d love to try that blush. 🙂 Plus let us know how the coffee mint stuff works and the beach waves spray.

  30. Shannon Alarid

    I would love to try the Alterna Tousles Texture Mist. I have the straightest hair ever and would love to find a product that gives it some wave!

  31. Alexia561

    I’m looking forward to trying the hair mist, as my hair is straight and boring and just hangs there. 🙁

  32. Shannon Alarid

    First, I want to say that I stumbled upon your blog while looking up subscription box reviews for Citrus Lane last week. I’ve been on bed rest with a fractured ankle (while 6 months preggy!) and have spent all week reading your past articles. Your boys are adorable and I love reading your posts! Second, I want to say that something weird happened when I was trying to enter this contest and it made me click “enter” on a couple of entries twice. I was so not trying to double-dip my entries – please delete the extra entries if they came up twice 🙂

  33. Melissa B

    For the price, Glossybox is a great deal! It seems like everything in this box is ‘useable’ by anyone/everyone, even if it’s something you would not normally buy. I already get Glossybox but I know my daughter would be all over these products…but I would keep the cream for myself 🙂

  34. mary m

    I wanna try the bath tea bag!

  35. Heather

    I would love to try the blush.

  36. Sandra

    I’m the most curious about the coffee scented body wash. Also I always need most lip balm – and I still haven’t tried the Honest Co.

  37. Alice

    I want to try the lip balm but I would want to smell the tea bath and coffee body stuff.

  38. Jamie

    What is the de beaute stuff? Lotion? I guess I could go click the link instead of asking, lol

  39. Nicole

    Would love to try the Texture Mist. My hair is super curly so I don’t know how that would work…

  40. heather

  41. Aimee A

    I’m a total blush girl! But I love a good Chapstick!

  42. Mary Q.

    The tea bag and the bamboo style waves look so cool! I’d love to try those. Coffeemint is a very unique scent… I’m having trouble imagining it but gosh it sure sounds like it’d wake you up.

  43. Emily KG

    Are all the glossyboxes the same? If so, I ruined it by looking lol.

    I want to try the shower gel. Sounds interesting!

  44. Lauren

    I love how this box is wrapped up! I use Alterna Bamboo products and absolutely love them. I haven’t tried the Boho waves, but I might have to now! Thanks so much for offering this giveaway!

  45. Debi B

    Everything in the box is really neat,but I would l would to try
    the Honest lip balm. My lips would thank you-lol
    I am like you,I would fall in love with the Le M?tier De
    Beaute and then be trouble! But I bet it is great to use.

  46. Lily S.

    I need a really good blush, so that looks great to me!

  47. Jocelyn Dunlop

    I really want to try the coffee mint body wash. I’m always looking for things to wake me up more in the mornings.

  48. Leigh

    I want to try the Alterna Bamboo Boho Waves Spray. My hair is naturally wavy, but always air-dries “weird”. Maybe this would finally give me the perfect beachy hair!

  49. Sam L

    The lavender mint lip balm is what I’d like to try the most! Of course, all of the products sounds awesome 🙂

  50. Kimberly

    This looks great! I get birchbox but I would love to try this box.

Lip balm often contains beeswax or carnauba wax, camphor, cetyl alcohol, lanolin, paraffin, and petrolatum, among other ingredients. Some varieties contain dyes, flavor, fragrance, menthol, phenol, salicylic acid, and sunscreens.;”..:
