GLOSSYBOX Review + Why I Love Subscription Boxes

If you follow me on social media, it's no secret that I love subscription boxes. Not only is it fun to get a shipment of new stuff delivered monthly, but I love the surprise of not knowing what is going to be in each delivery.  I am often sharing all the products that I get on my Instagram, and unboxing them on Snapchat (Rach480).  Although some that I receive are sponsored, where I get them for free in exchange for a product review, a couple of them I subscribe to myself (and pay full price) because I love the service.  So when Glossybox reached out to me to review their January box, of course I had to say yes.  Glossybox is monthly beauty subscription service, where each month you are delivered five deluxe sized beauty products to try.  What I love most about Glossybox, is upon signing up you fill out a beauty profile, so the items in your box are based upon your beauty preferences, and not just selected at random.  The service is $21/month, which you can read more about, and sign up here.

This is what was in my January box:

AG Hair Cleansing Cream Foam -Free Hair Wash:  I was very excited to try this shampoo because it's ideal for super dry or brittle hair, which I have.  Not only do I love the smell, but my hair felt so good after using this product.  I was a little worried because it says that I don't need to follow with conditioner, but it left my hair soft and tangle-free on its own.  This is a product that I will definitely continue to use.

La Theorie des Volcans Noir Eternae Youth Potion Face Scrub: This face scrub is used to remove impurities, redness, and dead skin cells.  You can use it as a daily cleanser or a purifying mask.  I tried it as a mask, and it left my face feeling clean and soft.

oOlution Eye Love:  This eye cream claims to provide you with wide awake eyes, even after a night of partying.  It suppose to rid of dark circles, and make the bags under your eyes magically disappear. Although my dark circles still exist after applying, I do love the feel of this eye cream, and will continue to test it out over the next month.

Daily Concepts Exfoliating Body Scrubber: A perfect scrubber for your showers that leaves your skin exfoliated and soft.

Universal Beauty Cosmetics Secret Flush:  This is both a cream blush and lip stain in one.  I love multi-purpose products, and the color of this one is ideal for both the lips and cheeks.  If you read Monday's post, then you know I probably won't be using this on my lips, but this is perfect for my cheeks.  I love how smoothly the color went on, plus it is perfect for throwing in my travel cosmetic bag, and reapplying if I need a little color throughout the day.

Even though Glossybox is usually filled with brands that I love, I was unfamiliar with all of these brands in my January box, which is why I love the service, and subscription boxes.  If these products weren't in my box, I would never have thought to try them out, which means I would have never discovered my new favorite shampoo!

Tell me, have you tried Glossybox or have a subscription service that you love to use?  If so, what are your favorites?
