Subscription Boxes

Glossybox May 2020

I received May’s Glossybox in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

If you’re thinking you just read one of these posts the other day, you’re not wrong. The April, May and limited edition Mother’s Day Glossybox arrived pretty close together so I’m sharing them all with you this week. (Are we all good with that?) The US subscription box delivers five deluxe or full-size beauty products every month. May’s box is about exploring your wild side (rarr rarr!) and shipped in one of two snazzy boxes, leopard print or zebra.

Glossybox May reg 2020 the box

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

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

Each box is at least $60 in value, and often much more. Shipping in the US is free and shipping to Canada is $5/box + any duties and customs fees.

Glossybox May 2020 reg product card

The product card is one page that opens to full-colour photos and descriptions of the contents, where you can find them and the retail price, as well as tips on how to best apply them.

Glossybox May 2020 reg Steve Laurant eyeshadow palette

Steve Laurant Eyeshadow Palette

The possibilities are endless with this eyeshadow palette! With metallics and dark colors, you can rock your bold or smokey look as much as you like! ($38)

When you’ve been reviewing beauty boxes for a long time it’s not surprising to get duplicates. And it really doesn’t bother me in the least — I just gift them to family and friends. I’ve already got the same shades in at least two other palettes so I’ll pass this one along.

Glossybox May 2020 reg Eyeko eyeliner

Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner

Say yes to this super fine, super back liquid eyeliner. This handy pen has a narrow, pointy tip to give you ultimate control and the formula is waterproof so it won’t budge during the day. Try a neat, subtle line to enhance your lash volume, or go wild and wing it out — it’s up to you! ($22)

I have a couple of these Sharpie-like Eyeko eyeliners and they’re great. But I don’t need another just now so off it goes.

Glossybox May 2020 reg Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm with flower

Glossybox May 2020 reg Elemis pro-collagen cleansing balm 2

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm

This powerful, deep cleansing balm dissolves make-up, daily grime and pollutants. Luxurious rose and mimosa waxes are infused with nourishing elderberry, starflower and optimega oils. ($14)

Elemis had me at collagen, but it also feels amazing. I don’t know if it’s as effective, but I’d much rather get my collagen in my skincare than a powdered drink. Do you take collagen in some form? Which one makes the biggest difference?

Glossybox May 2020 reg Bellápierre kiss proof lip creme

Bellapierre Kiss Proof Lip Creme (various shades)

Be ready for anything with this lovely high impact liquid lipstick that lasts for hours without the need to touch-up. Full coverage + matte finish = fab in two seconds flat. ($20)

I have this colour or very similar shades in a few different formats so my bestie gets this one. (This is turning out to be more of an unboxing post than a review. I hope you don’t mind! ❤️)

Glossybox May 2020 reg CBD Charcoal face mask

CBD FX Face Mask (Various)

This line of reformulated 50mg CBD face masks are made with a topical boost of organically grown hemp CBD combined with traditional skincare ingredients like charcoal, aloe vera, rose extract and hyaluronic acid. Designed to soothe, hydrate, and clarify your skin during the beginning of summer! ($6.99)

I use a charcoal face mask in a jar a few times a week and I’m convinced it’s the secret to clear skin for me so this could be a great match. Trying it soon.

Glossybox May 2020 reg full contents 2

May’s Glossybox is valued at $100.99 and it’s spot on. I would happily use every one of these products if I didn’t already have ones just like them, and I’m just as pleased to share.

What do you think of May’s box? Do you use any of the products or other products from these brands?

  1. Lots of goodies in this snazzy box.
    As a creature of habit with eye shadow – yes still applying it every day, I tend to use the same colours all the time. Nice variety and would be fun to play with, need to look snazzy behind the sunglasses and the masks. My regime includes a very fine eye liner, but black is a little too harsh for me – at my young age 🙂
    I’ll take my collagen any way I can get it and better still if it cleans at the same time. And this one sounds good enough to eat.
    The lip cream sounds wonderful, I’ll take mine in a real red please.
    Sadly- too lazy to use a face mask- other then the kind that we are all wearing these C-19 days.
    Yup- Nice combo of products and terrific value. As always, great pics and looks like your little bud is still keeping you company through your entertaining writings.
