Glossybox January 2015 Review and Free Gift Coupon Code

When I saw the first spoilers for the January 2015 Glossybox, I signed up immediately.  I've been away for a few months but purchased a RueLaLa voucher for a three month subscription.  I didn't use it for December because nothing caught my interest. When I saw the Vichy and skincare spoiler I immediately put my voucher to good use and started my three months with January.
Each month, you'll get a sturdy pink box to open just like it's a gift!  Glossybox does a great job with presentation, I'll give them that.  You'll also get an information card telling you about each item that's been included.  It's printed on heavy cardstock and is quite nice.  One of the better info cards, if that means anything to you.
I'd only seen the two spoilers of Vichy and the Kueshi so everything else was a surprise.  And it was a good surprise!  I love getting makeup brushes!  If you sign up this month, this is the box you will get.

The Cost: $21/month.  Use Code BFRGOLD15 to get a free full size Beauty For Real Glowing Cheek Tint and Luminizer with a $29 value!

What You Get: Five luxury deluxe sized beauty essentials, from both well-known and emerging brands, delivered to your door each month.
Teeez Trendy Cosmetics Beautiful Flat Stiff Brush- This is made of natural hair with rounded edges and is for shadows and liners.  The bristles are firm but smooth and is a great shape for applying shadow to both upper and lower lids.
And its GORGEOUS!  I love the handle print and colors so much!  This should add some flair to my makeup brush container for sure. This might be my favorite thing in the box and I was sure I would love a skincare product more. Haha!
Value: $23.50
Vichy Purete Thermal 3 in 1 Cleanser-1oz- I adore Vichy.  They have one of my favorite winter moisturizers (the Aqualia Thermale Rich Cream) and I've received this cleanser as a freebie with one of my purchases.  The thing I like about this is that you don't have to have water to use it.  You can wash it off or wipe it off with a cotton pad.  So when hiking, camping or traveling, this kind of product is perfect.  It's lightweight with a creamy formula and should work well for those with sensitive skin.

Kueshi Pure and Clean Revitalizing Facial Toner- This is from Spain.  This isn't like most toners you may find on the shelves.  It has no alcohol.  It's not meant to be an astringent.  This is for moisturizing, oil control and with aloe as the second ingredient, healing for acne prone skins.
I'm really excited to try this.  I've never heard of this brand but the ingredients looks great.  It's also cruelty free.
Value: $13.30
Skin&Co Roma Truffle Therapy Serum- There were two options for this product so you'll either get this or the Sicilian Light Serum.  This is kind of an unremarkable serum other than it's retail price.  I feel like I've received this in a Glossybox before but with all my boxes, who knows. :)
This is from Italy and it for brightening and moisturizing your skin for a younger, healthier look.

Lollipops Eye Pencil in Goodbye Moon- That means it's a black eye liner.  This has a metallic finish, though, so maybe it's different from the other ones.  It's got a long-lasting formula that's also smudgeable for the perfect smokey eye.  Not that I've ever perfected a smokey eye that didn't  make me look like I'd lost a fight with death but it doesn't stop me from trying occasionally.
Value: $17.70

VERDICT: I'm pretty happy with my re-introduction to Glossybox.  I'll use everything in the box even though it might take me awhile to get to the eyeliner.  I *love* the brush.  Give me all the brushes every time!  This box also had three new-to-me brands which is always fun.
I think I'm the most excited for that toner.  I wasn't really expecting much and then I checked the ingredients.  Totally using it!

If you'd like to sign up for Glossybox, you can do that right here.  Remember to use coupon code BFRGOLD15 to get your free Beauty for Real Luminizer/Blush Compact!  It's super easy to cancel when you want to, right from your account.  If you sign up now, you'll get this January box (but you might get a different Skin&Co serum).
