It’s the little things: Tallying up the March Glossybox #beautybox

I received the March Glossybox in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

Hello hello! I hope you’re all doing okay and have lots of support in these uncertain times. I’m having a hard time settling down to write but I have some fun things to share that might be a welcome distraction for us both so I’m just going to try my best, starting with the latest Glossybox. It’s a subscription box that delivers five deluxe or full-size beauty products every month. For $21 USD you get at least $60 in value.

Glossybox March 2020 the box

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.

Glossybox March 2020 product card

The last few boxes haven’t come with a product card but look! It’s back! The old ones were a one-page glossy foldout on commercial magazine-weight paper, while this one a one-page booklet printed on matte cardstock. The new one is more upscale in look and feel but most importantly, it includes descriptions and prices for each of the products that I’ll share with you here.

This month’s box also included two discounts: one a $100 voucher for Laithwaites Wine Club (good for US customers only) and a $80 discount for new Hello Fresh customers (applicable in Canada and the US). I won’t use either of these, so I’d love to see some discounts for other products and services.

Glossybox March 2020 Sleek Copperplate Highlighter Palette

Sleek Copperplate Highlighter Palette

Sleek’s first all powder highlighting palette features rich coppers and duo-toned gold shades to give you a ‘lit from within’ glow, no matter what your skin tone. ($15)

I have a few of Sleek’s eyeshadow palettes from previous boxes and use them all the time. This highlighter one is gorgeous. The shades are all super flattering and I love the sun-kissed shine.

Glossybox March 2020 Eyeko Black Magic mascara

Eyeko Black Magic Mascara

This award-winning mascara is enriched with a botanical shea butter blend to help care for your lashes while giving intense volume and curl. ($14)

I definitely noticed the curl with this one and the brush works great to separate lashes but the volume wasn’t there.

Glossybox March 2020 Mane Club 5-in-1 deep conditioner

Mane Club Cry Baby and Bad Attitude Hair Masks

This dynamic duo brings more to the table than attitude: with six-free ingredients (buh-bye sulfate, paraben, gluten and other junk) and a mission for hydration, say hello to volumized, softer hair after one use. ($2.99 each)

I love the generous sizes of packages. I tried Bad Attitude and got four treatments out of it (even with very long hair). My hair does feel softer and a bit more voluminous after, but the sweet and spicy fragrance wasn’t my favourite. Cry Baby is fruity so I expect to like that one much more.

Glossybox March 2020 Basic Beauty tweezers

Basic Beauty Tweezers

Expertly shape your brows with this classic slant tip tweezer in our favourite colour: pink! The perfectly aligned, hand-filled tips grab the hair every time for minimal effort and zero discomfort during a shape-up. ($6)

How much can you say about tweezers? These work like a charm and the colour just makes me happy. It’s the little things! Literally.

Glossybox March 2020 Ciate Stamp & Drag

Ciaté London Stamp & Drag Liner Duo

Cited as the solution for the perfect winged eyeliner, this unique double-ended pen features a perfectly shaped “wing” stamp plus a precisely pointed tip for the best winged eyeliner of your life. ($19)

I’m crap with eyeliner on the best of days so it’s going to take me a lot of practice to get the hang of this one, even if the wing stamp is supposed to make it easier. It’s an interesting concept ‘tho. Have you tried this one? Do you have any tips?

Glossybox March 2020 full contents

If you’re looking to try a beauty box, Glossybox is a consistently good value. The March box tallies up to $59.98; all of the products full-size with the exception of the mascara (a deluxe mini).

Are you a Glossybox subscriber? What products would you like to see in future boxes?

  1. You may be having a hard time settling down to write, but your writing style and directness is always enjoyable to read… regardless of the topic.
    So now to the topic – Love the thought of a “lit from within glow” and the shades are very pretty. Am always in for a glowy/dewy look as long as it doesn’t enhance those damn wrinkles.
    I wear a dark brown mascara – never black – too harsh – but I too need volume volume volume, without getting clumpy.
    In these times of not getting out to our hairdresser, if these hair products helps keep our uncut, uncoloured hair healthy – bring it on. Same with the tweezers. Boy it is going to be great to get to a professional who will help keep us at our best.
    Am I that much out of he loop that I don’t know what a wing stamp is?????
    Even though the world is not seeing much of me these days, I still do my makeup every morning so that I don’t scare myself in the mirror and do agree that there seems to be great value in your Glossy Box.
    Thanks as always for the great pics. Love the necklace and the happy face cup of tea and of course the side shot of your little buddy.
    Curious – what is the product with the tweezers and the eye dropper? Great shot

    1. I love your thoughtful comments! Thank you for taking the time to read so closely and share your thoughts (and for the sweet compliments)! ❤️❤️❤️ I think you would have so much fun unboxing a Glossybox each month and trying the products. Playtime for makeup lovers!💄

      The eye dropper is on the cover of the magazine that the tweezers are sitting on. 😉
