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.

Nice to see you again: Lookfantastic’s December beauty box has some great repeats

I received December’s Lookfantastic box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes. I just did that fun thing where you write an entire post only to discover it never saved and have to start from scratch. Good times. December’s Lookfantastic box arrived earlier than it usually does so I’m happy to have it here for you today. If it’s new to you, it’s a monthly subscription box from the UK that delivers six premium beauty and skin care products and a copy of ELLE UK for £15.00 or about $22 CAD/month. Shipping is free.

For lippie lovers, a subscription box under $20 💋💋

I received November’s Lip Monthly in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This review also appears on A Year of Boxes. Shoana Jensen did a segment on Cityline ages ago talking about the best subscription boxes on the market and Lip Monthly was one of them. It’s a subscription service from the US that delivers a variety of lip products + one bonus cosmetic in a reusable pouch every month. I’ve been wanting to try it, so I was delighted when November’s arrived.

What’s inside November’s Glossybox #beautybox

I received November’s Glossybox for review purposes. All opinions are my own. This review also appears on A Year of Boxes. December’s come rushing in and I still have three November beauty boxes to share with you so maybe pour yourself a cup of tea and sit with me while I catch you up. (If you’ve still got some shopping to do, any one of these would make a great gift for the beauty lover on your list.) First up: Glossybox. It’s a monthly beauty subscription box that delivers five deluxe or full-size beauty products ranging from trendy to high-end. The company sources from more than 400 brands around the world to curate a sampling valued around $60 USD for $21/month.
