Glossybox July 2014 Review and Coupon Codes

First of all, this July Glossybox arrived sooner than any Glossybox I've ever received before!  I think that warehouse switch really helped us west coast people get our boxes sooner.

I've been so excited for this Glossybox ever since I saw the SkinInc serum spoiler.  There are three versions and they are all good but I really wanted to know which one *I* got!

The Cost: $21/month.

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

Skin Inc Custom Blended Anti-Aging Serum- This SkinInc serum is the best part of this box!! This is a custom blend of antioxidants, Coenzyme Q10, elasticity-promoting marine collagen and hydrating hyaluronic acid.  This features SkinInc's patented encapsulation technology to provide long lasting hydration.
I'm nearly finished with the bottle I received in the Mother's Day Limited Edition Glossybox so I'm ready for a new one!  I absolutely LOVED it so I was so happy to see more SkinInc in this box.  I actually ordered two boxes just because of this serum.
One thing I really like about this is that it has no scent or fragrance.  Just purely awesome goodness.  The ingredients are amazing and there's no parabens (for those who are concerned).  I ended up getting two Anti-Aging serums and I'm totally okay with that.  I'd really like to try one of the custom blends but it's out of my price range for now.  If I did make my own I would want Vitamin A, Vitamin C and ceramide in mine!
Full Size Value: $45/.34oz
Size Included: Full Size

Mitchell and Peach Body Cream- a luxurious body cream containing English honey, cocoa, Vitamin B5 and shea butter to leave skin soft, nourished and delicately fragranced.  This contains steam distilled floral essential oils including rose, lavender and ylang ylang.  I'm sure it smells fantastic but once again my lavender allergies strike and deny me the ability to love something.
Full Size Value: $61/6oz
Size Included: 1.4oz

Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm- A refreshing, mojito flavored gel lip balm.  Moisturizes without stickiness.  Use as treatment or to add shine.  It smells good!  I wouldn't say it is non-sticky though.  I'll use it!
Full Size Value: $12/.35oz
Size Included: .20/oz

Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment- This power-packed "facial in a jar" is said to work with the skin's natural collagen to exfoliate, tighten pores, smooth texture, reduce fine lines and absorb impurities.  This is a 10 minute mud mask with sea clay, volcanic pumice and green tea leaf.  Guess what else is in it? Lavender oil.  Of all the things to be allergic to!!  Ugh!  I'm glad it's not peanuts, though.
Full Size Value: $69/1.7oz
Size Included: .5oz

Philip B pH Restorative Detangling Toning Mist- A weightless, daily detangler mist that leaves hair shiny and frizz free.  This is a leave-in toner that works by adjusting the pH of tap water to seal your cuticle.  I'm not even sure that is possible. Scientifically, I mean.  It does list acid and alcohol in the ingredients.  Guess what else is in there?  Yep. Lavender oil. 

VERDICT: I automatically love this box because of the SkinInc. This one item more than pays for the box and makes all the other products extra.  Which is kinda good considering there's lavender in three of them so I can't use them.  In all honesty,  I probably would only have ended up using the Glamglow out of those three so I'm not too concerned.  I'm pretty excited to use my SkinInc!  Woohoo!

If you would like to sign up for Glossybox, you can do that here!  At checkout use CAITE to receive a free Caite Paint Pot Nail Polish in your box.  It's likely expired (it was a 48 hour deal but I can't remember when the 48 hours started) but you can also try to use SUMMER14 on a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription to get 20% off.  Using HAIR will get you a full size Nioxin Hair Treatment in your box while supplies last.

Which SkinInc did you get? Were there other variations?  I suppose I'll find out when I get my second box. I'm hoping to get the Brightening one.

  1. OMG YOU GOT YOURS ALREADY!!!! Mine are still slowly coming to me... (had to use backdoor tracking) so I probably won't get them until I come back. But I'm definitely looking forward to seeing if I get two different serums or two duplicates. :D

    1. I know! I couldn't believe it when I saw it in the stack on the porch! I hope I get two different serums but I'll use whatever I get since it's all good!
