Glossybox (January 2016)

Glossybox is a monthly subscription that delivers beauty products - hair care, skin care, makeup, perfumes, tools, etc. to your door for $21 per month if you buy the monthly plan, but that price goes down if you buy a 3-, 6- or 12-month subscription.

Glossybox carries some of the best brands in beauty. Each box contains five items from full-sized to deluxe samples. Following are the contents of my January box:

MEMEME Lip Glide in Playful Peach ($12.50) - Looking for hydration and a burst of color for those lips? This apricot-hued lipstick leaves a gorgeous, satin finish that stays put no matter what the day brings.

EMITE MAKE UP Diamond Heart Base Primer (0.5oz, ~$12.08) - With New Year's resolutions abounding, one of ours is keeping our makeup flawless all night long. This primer's special Diamond Heart ingredient imparts a natural glow and preps the skin for foundation by evening out skin tone and minimizing imperfections.

I feel like a broken record these days. Some of these products are just not made for me. The apricot color of the lip glide is not my color. And I wear little makeup, especially foundation, so the base primer will be passed on to someone who will use it.

ROYAL APOTHIC Cream Creme To Go in Cutting Garden (1.25oz, $14.00- Formulated with milk proteins and lactic acid, Royal Apothic's body moisturizer allows you to simultaneously exfoliate and moisturize for fresher, younger-looking skin.

-417 Foot Nourishing Cream (1.7oz, $8.00) - Winter is the most unfavorable season for dry, cracked soles. Packed with water from the Dead Sea and aloe vera leaf juice, you can say goodbye to discomfort and hello to smooth skin.

These are two items that I most definitely will use. The body cream is a bit strong, but smells very fresh. Not perfume-y. The foot cream's scent is even better. I can't describe it, but it's muted. Both feel great on the skin.

BEAUTIFUL NUTRITION Lemon Rinse Gentle Clarifying Treatment (2oz, ~$1.50) - We love our hair products as much as you do, but every now and then our locks need a break from all of the styling. Over time, product buildup causes hair to look dull and damaged, which is when you need a quick clarifying rinse the most.

I'm very much looking forward to using this. The citrus-y lemon is a lovely smell and it feels not at all greasy on my skin.

This box had a total value of $48.08... Not the highest value for a Glossybox, but the value more than makes up the price. There was also a great variety of products. As usual, I'm looking forward to next month!
