Information Card


C. Wonder Gift Card - $5

Each card could have contained anything between $5 and $500. I wish they would have made the minimum amount at least $10 or higher, so that everyone could have at least used the card. The $5 doesn't even cover shipping, so it's worthless to me!

Strangebeautiful Colorbloc - $18

Exclusively designed for Glossybox, this patriotically-inspired Strangebeautiful Colorbloc pairing enables you to color your nails on the go effortlessly - outstanding for travel, airline-friendly and splendid to hold. It is comprised of two saturated colors and housed in a compact design.

More nail polish! I already have plenty of patriotic polish open, so I don't need anymore.  I *think* this is full-size, but there's no sizing listed on the bottle to know for sure. The design is cute, although mine arrived shattered! Customer service was excellent though and quickly sent me a replacement, which I've already received. You can see the shattered polish below. 

Shattered polish!


Ayres Patagonia Body Butter 1 oz  - $4.15

Tackle skin's dry patches with an all-natural body formula enriched with herbal extracts and vitamins. This fragrant-fusion of jasmine rosemary, lavendar, bergamot and fir essential oils harkens to Patagonia's contrasting landscapes. 

I will always use creams & lotions, although two in one box does seem excessive! I've heard of this brand from Birchbox, but had yet to try it. The smell isn't overwhelming, which is great.

Rush Texture Dry Finishing Spray 1.5 oz - $3.38

This talc-free dry styling spray adds texture, shape and grip for an instant boost on hot summer nights, while maintaining hair's natural movement. Best of all? No white flakes or chalky residue.

I have yet to try this. I don't use dry shampoo very often, but I'll use it up eventually. I like that it won't leave a chalky residue. I hate that!


Camille Beckman Platinume Gold Imperial Repair Hand Therapy in Lemongrass Vert & Sparkling Grapefruit 1.35 oz - $10

Promising your hands a dose of hydration, restoration and softening, this dye-free, gluten-free citrus-scented cream includes botanicals like sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil and the brand's signature herbal complex. 

This is considered a full, travel size item. I love that it's paraben-free AND made in America! This is another brand I've heard of from Birchbox, but haven't tried. I'll put it on my nightstand when my current stash runs out. 

Sumita Beauty Champagne Eye Shadow Pencil .08 oz - $18

The perfect finishing touch for day or night, this universally-flattering golden shade offers a hint of shimmer to accent any eye color. Use as a highlight or apply to your entire eyelid without fear, as this silky pencil won't smudge or smear. 

Yay, a full-size product! I already own a few eyeliners from this brand thanks to both Birchbox & Glossybox, so I'm happy to receive an eye shadow pencil this time! I love neutral shades, so this champagne shade is great for me. I have yet to try it, but I have good expectations. 

Overall this box had a value of $58.53. It's not my favorite Glossybox, but the packaging and curation is cute. I just wish it wouldn't have included more nail polish or two cream products!
