Glossybox October 2014 Review + New Gift and Coupon Codes!

One thing Glossybox does right is presentation!  This is the October 2014 Glossybox and it is as gorgeous as ever.  I can't complain about pink, either.  Glossybox  has been doing so much better with shipping times, too.  I used to get my boxes the month after I paid but now here mine is and it's only the 21st!  It's a funny thing to be happy about, I know, but it shows a pretty big improvement.

I like Glossybox a lot because they send good brands and great sizes.  I have also found some of my favorite things in Glossyboxes.  Vichy being one of them.  I love that brand!  The value is always there for a Glossybox, too.  In this months box there are five items and one of them is a Limited Edition!

The Cost: $21/monthly

What You Get: Five luxury deluxe sized beauty essentials, from both well-known and emerging brands, delivered to your door each month.
I think Tarte recently got bought out by a new company and since then, I've been seeing lots of it in subscription boxes.  I like Tarte so I'm glad to see them.  The great thing is all the colors I've received have been very wearable.  No ugly colors anywhere!
Proganix Anti-Fade Weightless Argan Oil + UV Protection-  this is a sweet smelling blend of argan oil and cherry blossom extract.  It also provides shine and solar protection without weighing your hair down.  Glossybox always has good sizes and this one in particular is full size!  They don't really advertise as having full size so it's always a nice surprise when one is included.
This smells absolutely heavenly.  While I normally dislike getting hair products, I think I'll use this one because it smells so good.
Value: $12

Nails Inc. Westminster Bridge Matte Topcoat- A matte topcoat from the British brand.  I like that this is not a color.  I don't remember the last time I got a topcoat and I don't own a matte one so this is going right into my nail polish drawer to be used as soon as my shellac manicure dies.  This is another full size item.  I guess nail polishes usually are...
Value: $10
Vince Camuto Amore Eau de Parfum-  This is ADORABLE and a limited edition!  While I don't really go for perfume much since I already have my favorites.
Fruity top notes mix with the organic smell of freshly picked flowers. A divine base of comforting cashmere, rich, sensual amber and earthy sandalwood warm up the intoxicating combination.
That description is from their website.  I don't smell any cashmere and thats probably a good thing because really, who wants to smell like a goat?!  Who writes these descriptions anyway?!
Value: $10
Tarte LipSurgence Power Pigment in Awakening-This is a rosy peach nude lip tint that twists up.  It's part lip color, part lip treatment and is made up of vitamins, shea butter and a hint of mint!
I love this color.  It's very pretty.  It is a little strange how it tastes/smells like mint dental floss, though.  This is also a full size item!
Sesha Skin Therapy Botanical Hydro Mask-  This is a sheet mask with extracts of cucumber, green tea and marigold.  Wear this after a hard day or a long day in the sun since it's packed with anti-inflammatory goodness.
Since I'm totally into sheet masks, I'll absolutely be using this!
Value: $9

VERDICT:  This Glossybox has a value of $65 and has three full size items!  I'm not counting the mask since it's one time use.  The perfume has the cutest box and bottle ever and I kind of just want to display it somewhere.  Love the Tarte and mask.  I'll use the hair treatment and the mask.  The only thing I wont really get any use out of is the Amore perfume but I'm okay with that.  I think I paid a little under $19 for this box because I got a 3 month plan and had a coupon.  I can't remember.

If you would like to get a Glossybox of your own, you can sign up here.  Make sure you use a coupon code when you sign up so you can get a bonus in your box!  Here are the codes I currently have, though some of them may not be available any more.  They tend to be "while supplies last" and don't have an exact expire date.

  1. That perfume bottle is precious! But what do you have against goats? D: I kid, I kid. (HAR HAR HAR!)

    1. Lmao! You're so punny!! Im secretly super happy someone noticed my goat comment :D

    2. Great blog Sarah! I found it looking for reviews for the Sesha hydro mask. I just received it in my Glossy box yesterday and have never used one. I have it on my face at the moment and feel Hannibal Lecter-ish. (I hope the neighbors don't come by) Lol If you haven't used yours yet, I think it might help to warm the package in a bowl of hot water. (Just to lose the "holy crap, that's cold" factor.) Thanks again for the information

    3. Good call! Cold sheet masks are pretty awesome in the summer but it's cold out now. I am totally going to put mine in hot water before I open them!

  2. Update: Wonderful mask and it would be a great treatment before a night out. Completely smooths away fine lines, etc. I think I may order these. <3
