Luxe Beauty Samples and More in the June GLOSSYBOX

I was very excited to receive my first GLOSSYBOX in the mail recently. I love beauty sample subscription services (when they are good!)... and this one is good! GLOSSYBOX features 5 deluxe, high-end beauty samples each month. Available in over 15 countries, GB just hit U.S shores a few months ago. Aside from the samples, my GLOSSYBOX also included a copy of their GLOSSYmag. GLOSSYmag is a really cute publication by GB featuring beauty tips, trends, and more. I think the inclusion of such a polished-looking little magazine in the box is a great idea and sets GLOSSYBOX apart from other subscription services. 
Let's see what samples were in the box:
1. Kinerase Restructure Firming Cream
2. First Aid Beauty Smooth Shave Cream
3. Wella Professionals Enrich Moisturizing Treatment
4. Shea Terra Organics Ultimate Moisturizing Body Creme
5. (Bonus Item) Urban Organic Perfume from A Perfume Organic
6. beautyADDICTS Show-OFF Mascara

First impressions: this box included a really nice mix of fragrance, makeup, skincare, haircare, and bath+body. So many beauty sample services are ALL skincare, ALL the time. I really appreciate the variety here, as well as the full size mascara! Also, as a side note- I'm not sure what Heaven smells like, but I think to assume it smells like the Shea Terra White Chocolate Body Creme would be a pretty safe bet. Seriously, the fragrance is amazing.. and what a cute little sample jar! 
This is my first GLOSSYBOX- but based on what I'm seeing here, GB is doing beauty sample subscriptions right. Well curated, diverse, luxurious, and a good value. Well done, GLOSSYBOX! 
What beauty sample services do you subscribe to?
Thank you so much for reading! 
All the best,

  1. Awesome. Glossybox is looking a lot more interesting than another subscription which shall remain nameless.

  2. i really do like what i see in the box--especially the Shea Terra product! how much is this monthly 'script? i do subscribe to Birchbox and Julep.
