On the very last day of July, my July Glossybox made it to my front door!! I was very surprised, because Glossybox had stated on their Facebook page that they were not expecting their subscribers to receive their boxes until the first week of August! I credit Canada Post for getting it to me so quickly- thanks CP :)
For those of you who are new to beauty boxes, Glossybox is one of Canada's subscription beauty boxes. Alongside Glymm, Julep, Luxe and Topbox, Glossybox charges a monthly fee and sends out packages of deluxe beauty samples, such as lotions, makeup, nail care or skin care items right to your door step. Glossybox comes in a gorgeous, sturdy pale pink box that is completely re-usable for giving gifts or personal storage. Glossybox charges $15.00/month for their service- more than Glymm and Topbox. However, they promise to send "5 luxury product samples from high-end brands " in every box.

The tiny little Frizz-Ease sample will definitely be well enjoyed by my hair, but I did see that other Glossybox subscribers got a full-sized John Freida hair lightening spray. I assume that I did not receive this based on my beauty profile, since I do not have blonde hair. However, this is a pretty big sample disparity to go from a full-sized lightening spray to a tiny 10ml sample of hair serum?
I love the Zoya polish colour I received although it does remind me of OPI's 'I'm all ears'. The only difference is that 'I'm all ears' has pink micro glitter and 'Kimber' has gold micro glitter. I do think it is a unique shade that is perfect for summer time- good job, Glossybox! The Burt's Bees lip shimmer was a nice addition- much better than past Glossybox lip colours we have received! I like Burt's Bees as a brand because they're all natural :) Lastly, we got more beautysoclean wipes, which we already received in a past box. I used them all up, so I am not offended to receive this sample again, especially as a bonus item.
Overall, I am very happy with my July box! The only complaint I have is that Glossybox ships their boxes out so late into the month. They have said on their Facebook page that they aim to send the boxes out in the last week of every month, meaning that some subscribers will get their boxes in the following month. I think they need to work on changing this, rather than stating it will be that way. They have time to bill us at the very beginning of the month, so why not work on shipping the boxes out in a more timely manner? Besides this little annoyance, I am very happy with July's box! I can use everything I received (minus the cheap Dove bodywash).
Have you received your July box yet? Thoughts?
