March 2015 Glossybox
You know that wonderful feeling you get when you are reunited with an old friend? That’s exactly how I felt while lifting the lid of my March 2015 Glossybox*.
If you are a new reader of my blog, you may not know that Glossybox and I go way back. I was a Glossybox subscriber before the company discontinued shipping to Canada for a while. All that’s in the past now because Glossybox USA is now shipping to Canada. The box is $21 USD per month plus $5 shipping to Canada. To subscribe or learn more about subscription options, click HERE.
Glossybox sends its monthly items in a very pretty pink box. Although the box design has changed a bit since the last box I received a few years ago (it used to be a lighter pink and it just had the logo, not the name), it still, in my opinion, has the prettiest packaging of any beauty box. The box is very sturdy and can be reused as a gift box, a jewellery box, a nail polish or makeup storage box, or a stylish place to put anything you desire.
The March box items are centred around a professional quality hair item. The March Sneak Peek shows five different hair products from a moisturizing shampoo to a shine glaze from various high end brands. Each March box will contain at least one of the featured products. Read on to see which ones I received as well as the other items that came in my March box.
The hair items that I received are the Ouidad Color Sense Preserving Shampoo and Conditioner. These sulfate-free hair products contain apricot oil, honey, and antioxidants to protect colour from fading. They also hydrate dry hair. I think out of all the hair products that I could have received this month, these two are the most exciting since my hair is colour treated and I do whatever I can to keep my colour vibrant. I can’t wait to try them!
I love the packaging of this 24K Multi-Vitamin Day Moisturizer from Orogold Cosmetics. In addition to vitamins and antioxidants, it contains pure 24 karat gold to reduce the signs of aging by plumping and firming skin. I’m intrigued already! I received two of these little pots and I’m looking forward to trying them. While I usually avoid trying new skincare items because my skin is so sensitive, this product doesn’t have a harsh scent, and how could I pass up the opportunity to put gold on my face?
This sleek palette is the So Susan Cosmetics Concealer Quad. It features a hypoallergenic formula with virgin marula oil to hydrate and cover blemishes and minor imperfections. I like how it has shades to suit many skin tones, including mine. It’s also cruelty free which makes me like it even more.
This little tube is the Modelco More Brows Eyebrow Thickening Gel in Medium/Dark. It contains hair-like particles to create the appearance of full, even brows. I have never tried a brow gel before, so this is the perfect opportunity for me to start.
The last item is a Cheek&Lip Stain in Pink from Bellapierre Cosmetics. There’s nothing that I love more than a bright cream blush to perk up pale winter skin and prepare the complexion for spring. This formula is oil-free, mineral-based, lightweight, and pigmented. I will be adding this to my spring makeup bag.
Overall, I’m very impressed with the March 2015 Glossybox. All three cosmetic items are full size and value at just under $70 combined which is a lot more than the price of the box. The hair products are deluxe samples and the skincare samples are generous as well. I really like that there’s something for everyone in this box, and the items are from high quality brands. I’m looking forward to seeing what Glossybox has in store for April!
