Glossybox January 2014 Review

I’m so happy, guys! I wasn’t expecting Glossybox for another week or so since they announced their delay, but it arrived in my mailbox yesterday. I signed up for Glossybox with the LivingSocial deal, but I would have paid full price for this box. The Beautyblender + cleanser is worth $20, so in essence – you’re getting the Beautyblender with 4 other products for free.  Here’s the first look at my box:

And the pamphlet that explains all the products:

At first glance, the products are smaller sized than last month’s box, but I think that this was still a good box. There’s a variety of makeup, skincare, bath and beauty products, which is why I enjoy Glossybox so much.

My favorite product is probably everyone’s favorite. The Beautyblender. I’ve been dying to get one since every Youtube blogger refers to it as a holy grail product. I did try the Ulta brand one and thought it was about the same as a makeup sponge, but I’m told that the Ulta one pails in comparison to this one. I can’t wait to give it a try. I also love that they gave us the “pure” white one. Who really wants any extra dyes on their sponge?

My second favorite product is the Bellapierre Mineral blush. The color is really light and sheer that it will make an awesome addition to my collection. The size is pretty decent too. Since I only use a little bit at a time, this will last me awhile.

I take bubble baths every night, so any bubble bath or body wash that promises “foaming” action gets me really excited. I already used all of my body wash from last month’s box, so this will be used in a week. My only complaint is that I wish the bottle was bigger. Balance Me Super Toning Body wash:

I’ve gotten pretty into skincare lately, so Vichy’s Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream is pretty awesome for me too. This is paraben-free and is supposed to lock in moisture for 48-hours. Sign me up!

Every beauty box has some kind of “meh” or “not for me” product in it, and the Sea Salt Texturising spray is that for me. It’s supposed to give you a beachy/tousled hair look, but my hair is pretty flat.

Overall, I’m really happy with January’s box. There’s 4 products that I really love and am excited to try and only 1 that’s going into the trade pile. I believe I paid about $13 for this box with the LivingSocial deal and promo code, so I definitely got my money’s worth. I have one more month with my voucher, then I have to decide if I want to continue with it and pay full price.

Did you get January’s Glossybox? What did you think of it? Also, have you ever tried a Beautyblender? Is it as amazing as people say it is?

Subscription Box Deal: Glossybox Promo Code

I have a few box reviews that I’m working on and hope to have up later this week, but I wanted to share a quick deal going on right now with Glossybox. It’s quickly becoming my favorite beauty box, especially with the promise of a BeautyBlender in this month’s box. (Check out my December 2013 Glossybox review here.) Glossybox has a new 10% off promo code right now: GBCHIEF. This makes the box $18.90 and don’t forget to use Ebates first to get an additional $2.75 in cashback. After the promo code and Ebates, your January box would be $16.15.  If you don’t have an Ebates account, make sure to sign up here. (referral link)

I don’t have any idea how long this code will last, so take advantage of the deal as soon as you can.  This has now expired.

Big thanks to the ladies over at Makeuptalk.com for sharing this code in the forums!
