Glossy Glossy


Glossybox is a beauty delivery service that has been gaining momentum and praise around the world for a while now.  Needless to say, when I heard that they were accepting memberships in the US, I rushed over the their website to sign up.  I've tried several in-home beauty delivery services in the past and initially I was impressed with them, but after awhile, I found the samples to be...meh...and weren't products that I was impressed with.  

What Glossybox does deliver is higher end, larger sample size items that I think are a bit more similar to the products that I use.  And since they have a more global focus, they have a broader spectrum of brands to drawn from.

When I returned from my business trip (more on this later), I noticed my box had arrived! I haven't used any of the products yet (and I will do a review on them later), but I wanted to provide my initial impressions of the products and what I received.  

I'm incredibly impressed with what I have seen thus far.  From everything to the pretty packaging to the presentation of the materials in the box, every attention to detail is made to set this brand apart from its competitors.  And as someone who thinks that you can judge the contents of a package by its wrappings, I appreciate this.

The contents definitely lived up to the hype.  Glossybox boasts travel-sized samples; however, I'm inclined to think that these are closer to full-sized samples than travel-sized.  The box contained both brands I was familiar with (Burberry, Phyto, and Zoya) and brands that I hadn't heard of (Amore Pacific, Marvis), but I am beyond excited to try. Here's a run-down:

1.  Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Refreshing Hydra-Gel - A hydrating gel moisturizer that leaves your skin feeling bright and refreshed.  Notice your complexion visibly improve, giving you confidence and a natural glow.

2.  Burberry Beauty Lip Mist Natural Sheer Lipstick Copper No. 202 - A creamy lipstick that offers a hint of natural, sheer color leaving your lips moist and dewy.  The prefect present for any pout.

3.  Marvis Whitening - Make the most of your splendid smile with a whitening toothpaste dripping in cool mint freshness, all while protecting against decay, tartar, and plaque.

4.  Phyto Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Mask for Dry Hair -  Indulge in luxury and aroma with conditioning treatment that moisturizes and detangles strands without weighing hair down.  Nourish, revive, and delight.

5. Zoya Summer 2012 - Beach and Surf Collection -  Dive into the creamy shades and shimmering sea foils of the Zoya Beach and Surf Collection.  Allow your nails to go on vacation every day.

Bonus: Glossybox Blush Brush crafted from the finest goat's hair.
