January GlossyBox First Impressions.

I love Glossybox packaging so much. Especially the nice sturdy pink boxes and the pink ribbon tied into a bow. If you're not familiar with Glossybox, they are a beauty subscription service that sends you a box of deluxe products every month for $21. Check them out here: Glossybox.

 Beauty Blender Pure and Blendercleanser Sample

Beauty Blender Pure : $19.95 Full Size

BlenderCleanser: $2.99 for 1oz, Full size: $17.95

This is the product that I think most people were most excited about this month. I have honestly never tried the Beauty Blender (I know, I'm behind), but I will definitely review this. 

Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash: $6.99 for 1.7 oz, Full Size: $14.00

I do not understand how the full size of a body wash is 3.4 oz. That's enough for like a weeks worth of showers. And why is it so expensive. I guess we'll find out. 

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream: $9 for 1.7 oz, Full Size: $31.00

I've never tried Vichy either, because it's a little too pricey for me. But this seems like a nice cream that I will definitely use up in the winter. 

Bellapiere Mineral Blush in Desert Rose: $20.00 for 1.4 oz Full Size

I swatched this and it looks like a color I can actually wear. Cool beans. 

Toni & Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray: $5.50 for 2.5 oz, Full Size $15

Yes yes yes. I hope this works because my hair lends itself very well toward the whole messy waves look. 

The total value of this box is $64.43 which is pretty on par with previous months. 


  1. I used to love getting Glossybox every month!! The Canadian version no longer exists :(

  2. Ohhh, the Beautyblender/Cleanser combo is definitely exciting!

    I went through my 100mL bottle of the Balance Me body wash in a month and while I enjoyed using it, it wasn't an exceptional product for me.

    1. Good to know. I won't get my shower hopes up too much.

  3. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the Beauty Blender! The blush looks really nice too.

  4. Looks like this beauty box is filled with some useful things! I can't wait to read your review of the Beauty Blender.
    I used to use some Vichy products back when I worked at a place that offered me a small discount on them, and I actually liked the cleanser and moisturizer I tried. I can't remember which ones they were specifically, but it worked well for me at the time. I hope you'll like your sample. :)

  5. The Glossybox packaging *is* much classier than some of the other beauty boxes. I don't understand how 3.4oz could be a full-size body wash either... if it's small enough to fit in an airline carry-on, it's not full-sized.

    1. I know right?

      And their packaging is the best part for me. Which is slightly sad. So many pink boxes everywhere.

  6. you have a great blog! mind to check out my blog? maybe we can follow each other :)

  7. I've used the Vichy moisturizer before and it's really nice! Like everyone else, I can't wait to hear your review on the beauty blender. I've yet to try it myself too! xx

  8. Ooh, I can't wait to see what you think of the beauty blender sponge. I've always wanted one, but I hesitate over a $20 sponge. I'm curious to see what you think of it!
    I followed through GFC :)
    Follow me back?

  9. Love, love, love the beauty blender! The blush looks like something I would wear too!

    I used to have a Glossybox subscription, but I cancelled it because I got very overwhelmed with the monthly boxes. I still have yet to try most of the products I received!
