Glossybox May 2014 Review + Coupon Codes

The month of May was a collaboration for GLOSSYBOX with Bergdorf Goodman.  Those of us lucky enough to already know about Glossybox or were already subscribed got this box for $21.  Those unsuspecting Bergdorf Goodman shoppers had to pay $40 for this same box!  Well, not exactly the same.  The in-store BG box didn't have the super awesome $25 gift card in it!

The Cost: $21/month.

What You Get: 5 Luxury deluxe size samples from well-known and emerging beauty brands.

This months GLOSSYBOX arrived with a $25 Gift Card to Bergdorf Goodman.  This expires on June 15th so make SURE you use it immediately.
If you got more than one box you can stack your gift cards easily.  These are not promo codes, they are actual gift cards with PIN numbers and everything.  There is no minimum purchase either.

My box of goodies made me so happy!  When your boxes ship and you receive tracking, you can go into your Glossybox account and check your surveys.  These will show what you are receiving in your box.
When I checked mine, only five items showed up so there was one mystery item.  I was SO happy to see that it was the Lancome L'Extrait!!  I'm very excited to try it!

Atelier Cologn Rose Anonyme- Turkish Rose Absolute with notes of spicy ginger, velvet oud, Indonesian patchouli, papyrus and Somalian incense.  This is a truly breathtaking scent.  I don't particularly care for patchouli so this is not for me but it is a very sultry scent.
Full Size Value: $140/3.4oz
Included Size: .25oz

Lancer Eye Contour Lifting Cream-  An ultra-rich cream formulated to treat the eye area with its blend of sheer light diffusers, caffeine-based firming agents and a powerful collagen boosting peptide complex.  Visibly diminishes the appearance of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles.
Full Size Value: $95/.5oz
Included Size: 5ml

Lancome Absolue L'Extrait- Native rose sells are proven to extend their own exceptional properties to enhance the skins appearance, helping to reveal firmer, more elastic, and more radiant skin
Full Size Value: $360/1.7oz
Included Size: 5ml

Philip B Light-Weight Deep Conditioning Creme Rinse- A botanical blend of pure plant extracts and essential oils of lemon, orange, lavender and gardenia, this conditioning treatment is the perfect moisturizer and detangler for all hair types.
Full Size Value: $26.00/6oz
Included Size: 2oz

ReVive Eye Renewal Serum Firming Booster- A powerful yet lightweight serum helps to tighten the delicate area around the eyes.  It improves the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles while creating a visible, youthful lift.
Full Size Value: $140/.5oz
Included Size: 3ml

Napolean Perdis Auto-Pilot Pre-Foundation Skin Primer- Get gorgeous with this gentle, pre-make-up base.  Scientifically formulated to allow your makeup to "automatically" glide over the skin. Auto Pilot helps to prime and soothe the complexion for that flawless finish.
Full Size Value: $45/1.7oz
Included Size: 15ml

VERDICT:  As you can see the value of this box so far exceeds what was paid for it ($21) that it's slightly unreal.  The gift card alone pays for the box.  The products included are some of the best luxury brands you can buy.  I am very excited about the Lancome, the reviews for the Napoleon Perdis Auto-Pilot are very good, and I love ReVive serums.  This is an excellent box!  I love my Glossyboxes so much and HIGHLY recommend it.

If you would like to subscribe to GLOSSYBOX, it is $21/month.  You can sign up here!  At checkout, if you use the code HAIR you will get a full size bottle of Nioxin Hair Treatment (that's a $50 bottle!) added to your box for free!

  1. Seeing this just makes me slightly regret not buying a fourth. XDDD Ahhh this is an awesome box! I'm only slightly sad that all three of mine are duplicates but it'll let me really test the products. :)

  2. Oh! Also I'm really glad I didn't get the Atelier because I cannot stand the smell of patchouli and I'm pretty sensitive to scents in general. XD

    1. Yeah, I got it all three boxes and while it is clearly a quality scent it is just not my type. I had to wash off the tiny amount I put on (I just touched my wrist to the rim) because it is powerful.
