GlossyBox - February 2012

I was happy to receive my February GlossyBox this morning. I subscribed to GlossyBox when they first began but cancelled after two months because I was constantly disappointed with the box. I resigned up a couple of days ago for the February limited edition Valentine's Day box. They were hyping it up so much I had to see what it was all about. Luckily I am happy with this months box.

I love the hot pink box and the pink shredded paper. It is very Valentines Day. I also like how quickly the box got here too, I got the notification email on Wednesday, which for GlossyBox is early. Previous boxes have arrived at the very end of the month.

The items in this months box are:
  • Bobbi Brown - Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara 3ml - RRP$48 6ml
  • Jane Iredale - Tantasia Self Tanner sample - RRP$54 124ml
  • Proactiv - Deep Cleansing Wash 60ml - RRP$39.95 475ml
  • Star and Rose - Floral Wonderland Emergency Nail Files 12 mini files - RRP Upon Request
  • Polished London - Nail Enamel in Waitress 10ml - RRP$7.99 10ml
The box also included a little packet of love heart lollies, a Proactiv offer exclusive to GlossyBox to try it for $29.99 (30 day supply) and a $15 off voucher for but you must spend more than $75 to redeem.

There is a great variety in this months products. I love the nail polish, I have recently discovered Polished London and I think they are great quality. Mine has leaked a little though so the whole box smelt like nail polish. I am excited to try the Bobbi Brown mascara as I have never used one before. The nail files will be going into my handbag very soon. I am not so excited about the tanner and the Proactiv. I never fake tan - I am happy with my pale skin. I don't particularly have acne (especially body acne) either so I may not use this, but I am sure my brother or mum will give it a go. The lollies are a nice touch and I will definitely check out the activeskin website.

I am impressed with this months box especially considering I was not expecting it to be any good. At this stage I think I will stay subscribed for next months box and re-evaluate at the end of next month.

GlossyBox is $14.95 a month, check out for more information.

Are you subscribed to GlossyBox? Was your box different?


  1. Hi!
    I am subscribed and got a totally different box. I received the carmex lip balm, the olive lip balm and the Elf lip gloss, the proactiv and nail files. I was very unhappy with my box. You should be very pleased :)
    The candies were a nice touch.

  2. i got the same box stephanie, and i think it's a bit off. the mascara/proactive and self tan are all samples (1 would be a myer/dj's sample, 1 a send out to promote sample. only the proactive would be hard to obtain), i've bought emergancy packs of nail files (same thing, different brand) for $1. that leaves us with a nail polish, so around $9 value for the month (i don't put a value on samples). for a box i saw on every website, as banners everywhere, and that was promoted as if it was going to be amazing, it is really meh

  3. I tried the Bobbi Brown mascara today... it is beautiful!!!!!! For me the box was worth it just for the mascara alone.

    I love the nail files - they weren't anything I'd seen before but agree the proactiv was a bit strange to me.

    Didn't mind the tanning product, I might give it a shot - but like my pale skin too :)

    Didn't like the colour of the nail polish, but that's luck of the draw, and gave it away so at least I felt good knowing that someone will get use out of it!

    TBH - I Love This Box this month was much better.

  4. oooh! I got a similar box, however for the nailpolish I got purple. I blogged about too!
