November 2014 Glossybox

GLOSSYBOX is one of the more expensive beauty subscription services ($21 versus both Birchbox and Ipsy's $10), but the quality is so much better- these are high end brands! I also LOVE the beautiful, high quality boxes they send each month. They are great for drawer organizing or keeping craft products in.
Here's a run-down on what I received in my November 2014 box, along with the value of each product.
  • 12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment- (Value: $5 for 1.5 oz) This is a leave-in conditioning mist. I love using products like this on my daughter's fine hair. Her hair tangles so easily and this will make her post-shower comb-out much easier.
  • Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer-  (Value: $11 for 1.5 oz) This is a great size for travel and I'll be adding it to my overnight bag to use in the evening on trips.
  • OPI Nail Lacquer in Pink Outside the GlossyBox- (Value: $9.50 for full-sized product) YAY for nail polish! Always one of my favorite things to find in a beauty box. This nail polish shade was created to match the signature pink GlossyBox subscription box and I couldn't be more excited to try it.
  • So Susan Cosmetics Universal Blush – (Value: $28 for full-sized product) This promises a healthy flush that looks great on all skin tones. I haven't tried this brand before but am sure this will become part of my blush rotation.
  • Kneipp Herbal Bath Balancing Lavender – (Value: $5.50 for 20 ml) The instructions on this bottle say to use half a bottle in a hot bath. I tried it yesterday and I had a fabulous bath- the scent was amazing! It's a somewhat scary dark blue color, but I was glad to see it doesn't leave a stain in your bathtub or on your body.
VERDICT: My box had a value of approximately $60 so I'm really pleased. All of the items are definitely be products I will use, and nail polish always makes me happy!
GLOSSYBOX also has a great point program- if you answer their survey questions on each product after you receive it, you will receive 100 points. After you have collected 1000 points, your next box is free. So after 10 months, I will have a free box.
They also have a referral program and if you use my link to sign up, I'll receive 200 points, getting me closer to my free box! You can do the same with your friends after you sign up. Right now, you can use the promo code THETALK to receive a get a free Tarte Lip Stain in Flush ($24 Value) with your first box.
