Inside December’s Glossybox #beautybox

I received December’s Glossybox in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes

Sometimes as a kid when I visited my dad he’d give me money to go to the corner store across the street and pick out a treat. I often went with the sure bets — Twizzlers, Bottlecaps, maybe some sour keys or Swedish fish, and other times I’d buy one of those surprise bags that came with mixed candy and a little toy or two. Naturally there was a risk you’d get something you didn’t like, but that was part of the thrill. Just like subscription boxes. Some are a bigger gamble, but Glossybox is a pretty safe bet. Every month it delivers five deluxe or full-size beauty products from around the world ranging from trendy to high-end. For $21 USD you get about $60 in value.

Glossybox December 2019 open lid

Glossybox offers four subscription options (all prices in USD):

  • monthly ($21/month, billed monthly)
  • 3-month ($58.50, paid upfront)
  • 6-month ($111, paid upfront)
  • 12-month ($210, paid upfront)

Shipping in the US is free; shipping to Canada is $5/box + any duties and customs fees.

Subscribers can complete a beauty profile to help ensure the box matches their needs.

Like November’s box, December’s box was missing the product card. You can find it on the Glossybox site so I wouldn’t say it’s a huge deal (I’ve included excerpts from that below) but certainly not convenient. The box also included the same discounts as November’s box: one for $100 off a case of Naked Wines priced at $160 or more (good for US customers only) and a $80 gift card for new Hello Fresh customers (applicable in Canada and the US).

Golden Gatsby 3D Faux Mink Lashes

Channel your inner 20s girl with these luxurious lashes. Imagine your perfect lashes each designed with a unique pattern and watch them come to life. ($12)

I recently received a pair of lashes in another box and haven’t tried them yet so it’ll be a while before I get to these. Where am I going to wear them? To the grocery store? Spin class? Swiss Chalet? They may be a bit much. 😂  Plus I’m afraid I’m going to lose a couple of my own lashes taking them off. Do you wear false lashes? Tell me all your secrets!

This palette is a perfect match for my complexion. I may go easy on the bronzer in the winter when I’m pasty white.

  1. Oooh great box! Everything looks like a hit!

    I am a mess when it comes to applying false eyelashes. I love the look but fail on the execution, sadly.

  2. Wow, what a nice package of goodies….
    1) I have worn false eyelashes in my theatre world and the do add glamour and you do see people with eye lashes that get to you before they do and I think a lot of gals are doing the professionally glued on ones…. so why not for spin, the grocery store or chicken as la king?
    2) I hear that too much glow enhances the wrinkles but doesn’t mean that I don’t love the colours in the Glow Getter.
    3) the lip tint looks divine.
    4) every ones nails need TLC especially in the winter – so another winner there too.
    5) and lastly, we all need a new soft and pretty brush to help us look soft and pretty.
    Guess What – LOVE THE PICS, THOSE ROSES ARE BEAUTIFUL.

    1. “eye lashes that get to you before they do” 😂😂 Maybe they won’t be so out of place over a quarter chicken after all. I’m so glad you love this month’s box too! (And the pictures, of course.) ❤️🌹
