Review: Glossybox February 2015

Last month I didn’t cancel my plan before the monthly deadline, so I wound up receiving the February box. I have to say, as annoyed as I was at myself for not remembering to cancel earlier, the theme of the February box was adorable.

Julep Color Treat in Heartleigh – Full Size $14

This is so cute for February, but I don’t find Julep nail polishes to be all that great. There is a tip included on the card regarding how to best use it, but I don’t think I’ll be giving this a shot.

Unwash Bio-Cleansing Conditioner – Full Size $36

This is supposed to replace shampoo and conditioner. I’m always skeptical of these types of products, but considering I have crazy hair I’m always willing to try new products.

Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter in Pink – Full Size $14

This is the cutest little tin of lip balm. I prefer lip gloss to these little pots, but it would look cute just sitting on a dresser as a decorative item.

Scalisi Skincare Cleanser and Exfoliator – $25

This promises to be a “mini facial” and I’m SO excited to try it. I’m testing cleansers and I can’t wait to add this one to the list.

Rituals Cosmetics Foaming Shower Gel Sensation in Yogi Flow – $15

I wanted so badly to love this product. The packaging is adorable. However, when I tried it out the Indian rose scent was so incredibly overwhelming, there is no way I could use this. Total bummer.

I thought the presentation and products in the box are adorable. They all have a romantic vibe and would be perfect for date nights.

Review: Sample Society February 2015

Back in January I purchased a subscription to Sample Society. This is a subscription from BeautyBar.com and Allure Magazine. Last month there was a great coupon that allowed me to purchase a one month subscription for $10, instead of the regular price of $15. I adore Allure Magazine, and thought this would be the ideal opportunity to give this a try.

nugg Face Mask in Deep Cleansing, Revitalizing and Hydrating – $9.87

I have yet to give these a try, but I’m researching different types of face masks for a future post, and thought these would be perfect to add to the mix.

Nails Inc Polish in Prince’s Palace – Value $9

Gorgeous light purple. I don’t wear this type of color often, but because it seems to be on the grey side, I’m willing to give it a shot.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush – $1.75

I always love dry shampoo, but I can’t get beyond the scent of this one. I find it to be very floral-y and I will most likely be swapping this one.

Chloe Love Story Perfume Sample – $3

I was very excited to try this, and am thankful for the sample. However, the scent is a little strong for me, so I doubt it would be something I can wear everyday.

StriVectin Intensive Illuminating Serum – $22.25

This was the most exciting item in the box for me. I’m thrilled to be able to try this, and the sample size is quite generous.

Overall, I’m relatively happy with this box. I always love having things to try, and I’m always up to swap some things for products I can use. I’m not sure if I’ll continue to subscribe, but the box isn’t that expensive, so I’d be interested to see what next month brings.
