GLOSSYBOX Review + Coupon Code – July 2013

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

Not only did my mail arrive before noon today, my mail lady (who has been in a fabulous mood lately by the way) brought me my July GLOSSYBOX! I have not seen ANY spoilers for it yet so I tore it open in about two seconds.

The Box

GLOSSYBOX ships via USPS Parcel Select and I don’t even think I had gotten a shipping notification for this one yet?  It just appeared out of no where.  I love a good surprise when I open the mailbox and this was seriously a great one.

The Real Box

GLOSSYBOX is back to their normal boxes this month, no more cute Dallas Shaw boxes ;(.  If you look on Instagram (#GLOSSYBOX) you can check out all the fabulous box the UK (and maybe some other countries) got this month.  It was aqua with a coral on it.  Adorable.

First Look

Sometimes I get a GLOSSYMAG in my box and sometimes I don’t.  This month I didn’t.  I flip through it when it is included, but I’m not sad if I don’t get it.

The Information Card

The July GLOSSYBOX theme is “le Grand Bleu” and includes “a complete set of products to accompany you through a glorious day at the beach – from a vibrant splash of color to skin and hair essentials to repair the oft-forgotten down-sides of spending too much time under the sun”.  Here’s the details:

~Brazilian Blowout Acai Deep Conditioning Masque ($5): I have been noticing that my hair is a bit “damaged” lately from spending lots of time outside this summer with the kids and was JUST looking for hair stuff at Target yesterday.  Thankfully I didn’t buy anything because look at this!  It’s suppose to eliminate frizz, promote shine and guarantee long-lasting results!  Love!!!

~Bvlgari Eau Parfumee au the Blanc Shampoo & Shower Gel ($6.18): I expected this to be very floral smelling and over the top.  I was SO wrong.  It’s kind of musky and light and i love it!  Will I ever buy the full size for $42? No.  But I will use every last drop of this and pretend like I am in a fancy hotel while doing it!

~Dr. Brant BB Mattee with Signature Shinerase ($9.75): You know I am excited about BB cream!  I can’t get enough of BB cream and am on a mission to try them all.  It’s on the thicker side, so I plan to cut it with a little moisturizer.

~Figs & Rouge Cherry Blossom Tinted Lip Balm ($9): This product was one of the spoilers released by GLOSSYBOX and was one of my favorite products in this box. It’s a great sheer gloss, it smells amazing and I already want more in other scents.  And it appears that they sell hand cream, which I also want to try now!

~Nails Inc. Baket Street Polish ($3.80): OMG how cute is this little bottle?  It’s a mini bottle in a fun blue color and I want to paint my nails with it right away.  I *might* actually be able to use this size bottle of polish up.  Eventually.

~Nicka K New York Absolute! Make-up Cleansing Tissues ($1.17):

All totaled the July GLOSSYBOX had a value of $34.90.  GLOSSYBOX is only $21/month (and you can get $2.75 cash back through ebates) and once again I loved this month!  Loved it!

    I cannot friggin wait to get this box!!!! It looks like one of my fav glossy boxes ever. BG gets so much hate on MUT but I don’t get why, I love GB.

  2. Angela

    Already?!! Go Glossybox! It looks great. I didn’t re-subscribe until yesterday. I told myself I was going to skip it this month but I just couldn’t lol

    I’ve never used ebates before but I do a lot of online shopping. I just signed up. Can you tell me a little bit more about the process? Do I just automatically go to first every time I go to shop online to see if the store I want to shop at is listed? Then get taken to the company’s website via I think that’s how it works anyway.

      @Leslie: I’ve used ebates for about 2 years now and I LOVE it. I do most of my shopping online for my monthly needs: vitamins, new shoes (yes, I NEED new shoes monthly, but what woman doesn’t?!), dog food/health needs, work clothes etc. It’s super simple: you go to ebates first, click on the store you intend to shop at and voila! Ebates tracks your spending at that online store (that one time only. You’ll have to kepp going back to ebates for future shopping endeavors) and credits your account anywhere within an hour to a few days. Then, once a quarter, they send you a check for your previous quarters shopping! Hope this helps =)

    Ahhh! I had to peek, LOL. I can never allow it to be a surprise! I’m so happy to see this one and absolutely loved last month’s too. I think it’s becoming my top favorite! and I sent one to a friend as a graduation present, so I think she’ll be loving this one too!

    If you’re interested in trying new BB creams and such, you should check out Ofra Cosmetics! 🙂 It’s not a BB cream but a DD cream that is AMAZING!! 🙂 I stumbled upon it by chance and it’s the only thing I use now.

    BTW, of all the BB creams I’ve tried so far, Juice Beauty Stem Cellular has been my favorite. (From the June Pop Sugar box!)

    Loved this month and the theme. Cute nail polish and lip balm. I think GB has the most products that I actually use or want to try.

    Just got my box today, and I love it! Especially, the Bvlgari shower gel because they previously had a bath teabag made by the same company and it was delightful! The only thing I got DIFFERENT was the Evologie – Intensive Blemish Serum. Which I am happy with because I don’t have problem with shine because my face is so dry.

  9. Glitter Sparkle & Shine

    Thank you so much for your kind review of our Figs & Rouge Lip Balm Tint! We will have all the latest and greatest from Figs & Rouge here in the USA including new delightful lip butters coming mid-September. Get your Shine On! Visit us at for more emerging brands into the US! I’d love to send you a hand cream to try! Let me know what you’d love!

  10. I seriously loved this box, it was one of my favorites. I use the dr. brandt bb cream all the time, and that Bvlgari body wash was the yummiest smelling body wash I have ever used. Great review here!
