Glossybox March 2014 Review

My poor mailman.  He didn't know what he was getting into when he picked up my route.  I kinda miss my old  mail-lady.  She, at least, would leave ALL my packages at my door.  He only brings the ones that he couldn't cram in.

Either way, my Glossybox is HERE!  It takes forever to get here from New Jersey.  Ten days usually.  Ugh.

I really do love their packaging and their boxes.  I've kept them so far but I can see how they could add up quickly.  They're so sturdy, though, its hard to throw them away.
Glossybox comes with an info card that explains what you are getting and, thankfully, my contents were different than what my surveys online had indicated.  No soap!

Included in this Glossybox was an Alex and Ani brushed silver bangle bracelet with a swan charm on it.  I also received the fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream as part of my sign up bonus.  Yay for extras!

Nails Inc Baker Street Nail Polish- long-lasting, super glossy, flawless finish.  Cobalt blue shade is a best seller!  This is a mini and is a glorious blue.  I was impressed by its quick drying finish.  I'm going to save this for a Seahawks game!
Full Size Value: $9.50/.33oz
Included Size: .13oz

Sisley Paris Black Rose Cream Mask- a mask enriched with anti-aging active ingredients, vitamins and plant extracts.  Formulated to act instantly on aging and fatigue to rejuvenate skin and restore vitality.  Based on that description, yes please!  However I decided to find out what the ingredients were.  There is some Vitamin E, which is good but other than that its a lot of plant extracts and their claims cannot be backed up with science.  It's a basic moisturizer and its WAY over-priced.
Full Size Value: $158/2.1oz
Size Included: .38oz

Jelly pong pong Lip Blush- A lip stain made with beeswax and ceresin wax, which results in a silky, lightweight texture and hydrates like a balm.  This is such a Barbie pink!!  I wanted to hate it after i put it on because it reminds me of that horrid bright 80's pink.  But then it kind of grew on me.  It's fun. And it is hydrating.  I like the feel of it.
Full Size Value: $18
Included Size: FULL SIZE

Last but not least:

Alterna Bamboo Luminous Shine Mist: strengthening and shine amplifying for a sheer mirror-like finish. What a weird description!  Who wants a mirror-like finish on their hair!?  Back to the drawing board, marketing!  That side, I like this.  It is light and makes my hair shiny.  I'm not sure how long that effect will last though.
Full Size Value: $24/4oz
Included Size: .85oz

Alex and Ani Scent 7 Hand Cream- a soothing, moistuizing, invigorating formula that will transform the appearance of your skin.  Seriously, who writes this stuff?!  How can something be soothing and invigorating at the same time.  /sigh  Anyhoo.  I didn't try this because it is reported to have a powerful scent.  I'm not into super power flower scents so I'm passing this along.
Full Size Value: $16/2.4oz
Included Size: FULL SIZE

VERDICT: So this box was fun because of the extra bracelet and Lotus Cream.  I'm glad I subscribed. I've got a new blue polish, crazy pink lip crayon, Luminous Shine Mist and a Sisley Paris Black Rose Mask to enjoy!  Only one thing that will be finding a new home.  Pretty good, Glossybox, pretty good!  Twp full size items, too! Nicely done.  I actually unsubbed at the spoiler for April.  The next spoiler will probably be something I can't resist and I'll have to sign up again.
