Glossy Box Review - July

I got my third Glossy Box :)
I’ve been carefully reviewing this one since I started getting it, mainly because it’s so pricey.  I want to make sure it is worth it to ME.  If you don’t remember, this box is $21 a month, which is a little more than the others. Yes, they are considered “high-end” beauty products, but still.  In the last review I wrote about how you can go to their site and do little reviews of their products and earn points.  I thought that if you do all of the reviews every month, your six or seventh box will be completely free. Well, lo and behold the second box only had one survey for me to do.  I definitely didn’t get to earn the same points as the first box, which was a bummer!
This month’s Glossy Box theme is le grande Bleu and has quite a beachy vibe to it.

So without further ado….July’s Glossy Box! 
1)    Brazilian Blowout Acai Deep Conditioning Masque– 30 ml
Ooo I like this!  I always try to use deep conditioning masks once a week or every other week.  I think it’s a bit pricey, but hopefully it will do awesome things for my hair!
Full Size: $40.00 240 ml My Value: $5.00

2)    Bvlgari Eau Parfumee au the Blanc Shampoo & Shower Gel– 1 oz.
This smells good.  I’m not sure I trust products that can be BOTH a shower gel and a shampoo though.  It seems like it would be pretty crappy shampoo to me!  I’ll probably just use it as a shower gel. Again, this is a pretty darn pricey product. Not something I would ever buy. 
Full Size: $42.00 6.8 oz. My Value: $6.17

3)  Dr. Brandt BB Matte with Signature Shinerase- .25 oz.
I like this too!  I’ve been wanting to try some different BB creams so I’m glad I got this.  Now I can compare cheap ones to this expensive one!  That’s really the only thing I like about it….I’d never pay full price for this.
Full Size: $39.00 1 oz. My Value: $9.75

4)   Figs & Rouge Cherry Blossom Tinted Lip Balm Tube – .42 oz. (FULL SIZE)
As I said in my last beauty box review, I love lip products, so I was excited to see this.  I am a little bummed that the color looks so bright in the tube but it so plain on my lips. You can barely tell it is there. It is 100% natural which is awesome.  The only weird thing is that if I were to describe how this feels I would totally say it feels like petroleum jelly. It’s kind of thick and sticky.  The packaging says its petroleum free. I’m not convinced!
Full Size: $9.00 My Value: $9.00

5)  Nails Inc. Baker Street Nail Polish – 4 ml
I will never wear this.  Way too bright for me.  I’m a classic kinda girl.  Bummer.  At least it goes with the “blue” theme??
Full Size: $9.50 10 ml My Value: $3.80

6)  Nicka K New York Absolute! Make-up Cleansing Tissues – 10 sheets
It says this is a bonus.  I’m not too enthused, but I guess you can never have enough of these towels, especially for travel. They are quite nice. I won’t complain about these.  My guess it they had to add these as a “bonus” because subscribers would be mad if these counted as one of their “high end” beauty products!
Full Size: $6.99 60 sheets My Value: $1.16

Final Cost: $21.00
Final Value: $34.88

Wow.  This is not a great value considering how great other boxes could be. Especially when you think about how high priced these items are just because of their “brand name.”

Whelp, I think I am going to cancel this box too.  Hopefully I can find a better beauty box to start getting!
(Also, I swear I’m not a review blog….I just like sharing these fun things! I have not been compensated for this review.)
