Hey lovelies 💖💖! You have probably noticed that I have not written a review for the September, October, or November Glossyboxes. The answer is pretty simple. I cancelled my subscription. Now why would I do a thing like that?
Too Many Misses 👎
I cancelled my Glossybox subscription because there were too many misses for me. What I mean by that statement is that I received too many undesirable products and some meager samples. I understand receiving some things you do not care for in a box. However, when you do not receive products that line up with your profile, that can be a problem. This was it for me.
They knew my hair type and sent me products that were not a good match. They knew makeup was a preference and I only received one makeup product in my October box. Some samples were in no way deluxe. In my September box, I received a sample vial of a vitamin C serum that did not even have a dropper's worth of product in it. Having one disappointing month then two that are good I can handle. When I receive back to back boxes that are disappointing, I start to reconsider if the beauty box is worth an automatic $21 a month. For me, it wasn't.
My September Glossybox Had Two Gems for Me 💎💎
The September Glossybox was a beautiful one. I am referring to the actual box. That was gem number one. That box will be used for a special purpose some time later. I just don't know what that will be yet.
The second gem, was the Phyto Huille Supreme - Rich Smoothing Oil. This was a full-size product that I adored! I am typically not a fan of spray oils for my hair. I love Phyto's products. When I used to relax my hair, I would spend $50+ for their Phytospecific relaxer kit because it treated my hair better than any relaxer I've ever used. So, I shouldn't have been surprised that I would love this oil. I spritz on dry hair before I set it. It makes my hair so soft and gives me a nice sheen. The smell is very light.
The October Glossybox Had One Good Product for Me 💋
If I can say one standout thing about my Glossybox subscription is that it introduced to the Unani brand. I've used two great products from this brand that I received from my Glossybox. The Dermo Defense Mask and Unani's Illuminate Milk Cleanser.
This was a full-size product. The cleanser smells good. It is one of the gentlest cleansers I've used. If you have dry skin, this cleanser will be great for you. I mainly use it as a gentle first cleansing to remove makeup (not eye makeup). I recommend using a face cloth or dry cleansing cloth and wetting it, if using this for makeup removal. On days when I feel I need I need to add another face cleansing in the middle of the day, this milk cleanser does the trick without making my skin feel tight or irritated.
Is Glossybox a Good Subscription to Have 😕 ?
My answer is yes and no. If you simply like receiving a box of goodies every month and don't really care what you get, then Glossybox is a good deal for you. If you are like me and want items you can use, then the answer is no. My money is too tight to spend it on products I am not very satisfied with. I can take that $21 and buy one or two items I would enjoy.
