Here at Glossybox, we aim to deliver a box filled with love and happiness every month. We hope that as you receive your box, it serves as a reminder to take some time off to primp and pamper yourself. This month's lineup includes a wonderful hair treatment for color-treated hair (inhale deeply after spritzing into hair, it smells divine) and an eyeliner of the darkest black that stays on like no other. Glossybox subscribers also get an exclusive sneak peek at Lauren B. Beauty, a brand new nail polish line that will launch in Spring 2014. What better than pink polish to celebrate the month of love?

Anatomicals Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer Wake Up Under Eye Patches (.21 oz x 3 patches) - $11

These eye patches are specifically formulated to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and revitalize delicate skin around the eyes. Each patch intensively moisturizes, nourishes and hydrates, working to restore elasticity and helping skin to look and feel rejuvenated, vibrant and smooth.

I don't get puffy eyes nor do I have wrinkles, so this will be going up for swap. I get dark circles, but not bags. I do love the name of the product though. It reminds me of my 90's days watching "Buffy". :)

Lauren B. Beauty Nail Couture in City of Angels (.5 fl oz) - $18

Lauren B. Beauty's advanced quick-drying nail enamels deliver a high-shine, chip-resistant, long-lasting finish. City of Angels is a sheer, tender blush pink that flatters all skin tones. Not too saccharine sweet, it's possibly the chicest neutral ever.

I don't care for pale pink, so this also up for swap. 

 Sumita Beauty Kala Color Intense Pencil (.06 oz) - $15

Transform your eyes and add beautiful definition by simply drawing the line. Inspired by the deep pigment of the kajal pencil, this long-wearing liner is ideal for use on the inner water line of your eye, as well as the outer lash. 

I already have plenty of black eyeliners and since I don't wear much eyeliner, I put this up to swap. 

Pureology Serious Colour Care Colour Fanatic Multi-Tasking Hair Beautifier for Color-Treated Hair 1 oz  - $3.58

This is a multi-tasking hair treatment spray that provides 21 essential benefits to prime, protect, and perfect color-treated hair.

I don't color my hair, so this is also up for swap.

Skin & Co. Roma Truffle Therapy Serum Plus 0.17 oz - $12.75

A luxurious beauty base that plumps skin with hydration and fights off any free radicals your day brings on. This is a serum that goes on under your moisturizer that increases hydration and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. 

Sorry I'm missing a photo and I've already used up my sample! You can see the size from my first look photo. This was fun to try, but I'm not sure if it really did anything given the small sample size and since it costs $75 for 1 oz, I won't be purchasing. And yes, it really is $75 for 1 oz! 

Overall  this box had a value of $60.33. While I won't use all of these products, I will be able to swap most if not all of them.
