TTB Highlight: Glossybox US

The world is becoming overrun with beauty subscriptions.  They are everywhere -  sending you tons of makeup, skincare and hair samples monthly, in hopes that you may fall in love with at least one if not all of the items and become a loyal purchaser.  Though the playing field is well saturated, there is still one subscription service that seems to be edging out slightly from the rest, if you ask me, and it’s Glossybox.  Beauty lovers are quickly falling in love with this monthly subscription that features some of the best niche and luxury brands from all over the world, including Ole Henriksen, Illamasqua, Burberry, Wella and Koh Gen Do.

To begin the process, all members must fill out a beauty profile that helps Glossybox customize each month’s box to your specific likes/dislikes and concerns.  Once they have your preferences, all that is left to do is sit and wait for your delivery of all the sample, travel and occasionally full size goodies your beauty loving heart could desire.  Recently I had the chance to try out a few of the glossyboxes and instantly fell in love with their selection of products.  Here are a few of my standout favorite items from some recent Glossyboxes:

  1. Ole Henriksen Truth Serum – As one that was already a fan of this line, I was delighted to see this cult classic serum included. Packed with 5 kinds of Vitamin C and collagen, this is a vitamin cocktail for your face.  Delish.
  2. Ofra Cosmetics Universal Eyebrow pencil – New to this brand, I never can turn down a brow product.  And the fact that it works for any skin tone was a bonus.  It matched perfectly to  my hair color and lasted from morning till night.  Happy brows = Happy me.
  3. Wella Enrich Moisturizing Treatment – My hair often has bouts of schizophrenia, where it wants to be oily one day and dry the next.  So when I come across treatment product that is designed for all hair types, I am intrigued.  And the intrigue turned to joy when my hair was left bouncy and sans frizz.
  4. Kryolan Made for Glossybox Lipstick in Glossybox Pink – I need another lipstick like I need a hole in my head, but surprisingly I adored this color.  A perfect nude pink lip wearable with just about any makeup combination I put with it.
  5. Biolage Hair Oil – Normally just a wash and rinse kinda gal, I was excited to give my hair a little more TLC – and this oil was just the answer.  Results were super soft and shiny!
  6. Missha BB Cream – As one of the original inventors of BB creams, this was a great addition to my already growing collection.  The coverage was super light and gave my skin a flawless finish without any other foundation.

To join in on the fun, visit glossybox.com to choose from a 1 month, 3 month, 6 month or 12 month subscription.

Maree About Maree

Fueled by her love (obsession) of all things beauty, Maree Sye writes from the viewpoint of the everyday woman. Recently transitioning from a decade long career as an executive in the cosmetics industry to her current role as sales manager for a baby goods company, Maree has turned her insider information into a spectator sport. Choosing products appropriate for the office, understanding how to transition from day to night, and constantly seeking the elusive weekend “makeup, no makeup” look are the issues that keep Maree up at night. When she is not testing out products and blabbing about them on This That Beauty, you can find her blabbings on A Little Bit etc, her personal fashion/beauty blog – it’s a little bit fashion, a little bit beauty and a whole lot of sass. Maree currently resides in Bergdorf Goodman (or her apt in Midtown Manhattan), spends her summers vacationing at Sephora (or the dog park near her apt), and dreams of one day amassing so much makeup, that she will need a bigger home. Follow Maree on twitter @alittlebitetc or follow her down the street if you like – most likely she is on her way to pick up a new lipstick.
