I was sent a Glossy Box. I’d read enough GT to know what it is and what to expect (generally) inside. To say I was unimpressed is an understatement.
I looked up each of the 5 products online. All of them cost WAY more than I would regularly spend on a beauty/skin care product. ($178 for cream to rub on my face?!? Who buys this shit?) The “value” of my box probably worked out to more than it would cost to buy these (sample sized) products, but really people, all of this stuff has to be ridiculously overpriced/valued.
Do they, the choosers (and the product producers who give/sell their stuff to Glossy Box), truly think I am going to shell out that kind of money to buy the full-sized product? Perhaps if I got to choose the samples I wanted (rather than shelling out real money on a full-sized product only to hate it), a subscription would make sense. If this box is indicative of a regular box, I’m not into it. The only good thing I have to say about it is the sample sizes are great for travel (if you actually like the product.)
For those who will ask, here is the list of what was in the box:
Skin & Co Truffle Therapy Serum (got this in another “special” gift from the same giver; didn’t think it was that great the first time)
Kneipp Herbal Bath - Balancing Lavender (I can and do buy concentrated lavender oil at a much cheaper price, and I only use 4-5 drops for a bath rather than 1/2 a bottle.)
Aerin Rose Hand and Body Cream (Rose. ROSE. I am old, but not great-grandma old.)
12 Benefits Instant Health Hair Treatment (This might actually be a thing if it does even half of the promised 12 benefits. However, will it do them any better than my cheap drug store anti-frizz serum??)
Orogold 24K Multi-Vitamin Day Moisturizer (I can’t even. For this price it should turn me into a super model. I feel like it should be on a special shelf with a little spotlight on it, taken down only for special occasions.)
