Glossybox February 2015 Love | Unveiling and Review

 Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Believe it or not, this is my first experience with Glossybox, and I have to say that I am thoroughly impressed! I was luck enough to have received one of the few remaining February boxes this month, and I am still pinching myself in disbelief! It has surpassed my expectations!

Monthly Plan for $21.00 (5 luxury beauty products with free US shipping)
6-Month Plan for $126.00 (5 luxury beauty products. Billed every 6 months. Free US shipping)
12-Month Plan for $220.00 (5 luxury beauty products. Billed every 12 months. Free US shipping)
The box is itself a keepsake, and I will likely stow bits and bobs in there because it is simply too cute to part with!
Glossybox presentation is exquisite, and I was in a state of eager anticipation the moment that I saw this beautifully wrapped box!
The contents certainly did not disappoint, and five luxury products were definitely a cause for celebration!
Left to Right: Scalisi Cleanser and Exfoliator, Unwash Bio-Cleansing Conditioner, Julep Color Treat in Heartleigh, Rituals Yogi Flow Indian Rose & Sweet Almond Oil Foaming Shower Gel Sensation and Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter.
The February box featured 4 full size products and one deluxe sample.
Scalisi Skincare Cleanser and Exfoliator (Full Size. $25.00 for 3.4 oz.): Perfect to use before date night, this daily “mini facial” promises soft, glowing skin in a flash. Designed to prevent and repair visible wrinkles in tandem, this hybrid cleanser/exfoliator utilizes gentle microbeads to remove impurities and contains hydrating botanicals like jojoba, macadamia nut and sunflower oils. Massage onto wet skin using circular motions for one to two minutes. Rinse with warm water.

This is an utterly superb cleanser and exfoliator! It is gentle, but thoroughly removes dead skin without stripping! Skin is left bright and luminous! I am obsessed with Scalisi, and will be doing a full review very soon!

Overall Assessment: I'm smitten with everything that I received in this box, and that is generally a rarity for me with beauty boxes. There isn't a single item in here that I won't use, and based upon how I'm feeling it's a safe bet that I will be purchasing many of these items once I use them up. If this box is any indication of what one comes to expect from Glossybox, then I need more Glossyboxes in my life ASAP! For me, this box has earned an unmitigated A+!

  8. I received the xact same box and like you there's not a product in it that I won't use! I don't get Glossybox every month but I purchase a single box now and then when they appeal. I've had some great boxes from them. Have you tried Royal Apothic hand creams? They are one of my favorites, soothing yet not greasy and fabulous scents. Try one you won't be disappointed!

I think that you method is a really good one– that way you really only get what you want, and what you will likely use. I have not tried the Royal Apothica hand cream, but I will try it based upon your fantastic description and recommendation! :-)
