March 2014 Glossybox Review

If you’re new to Glossybox, it is a monthly beauty sample subscription service that ships 5 luxury travel-sized (and sometimes even full-sized) beauty products right to your door. It’s so much fun to get a little surprise in the mail, and to have the opportunity to discover and try out new products each month!

So let’s take a look at my March Glossybox!

Alex & Ani Scent 7 Hand Cream
$14.00 / 2.4 oz. Full Size

Um, totally love this. And I received the full size, which is great. This hand cream absorbs instantly and leaves my hands feeling sooo silky smooth. Plus, the scent is incredible. It reminds me of the spa.

Nails Inc. Brook Street Nail Polish
$9.50 / 0.33 oz. Full Size

I LOVE this nail polish. Coral shades are my favorite, and this is a creamy, reddish coral that is perfect for spring and summer. The polish applies nicely and has a great opacity to it. It didn’t streak, either! I just wish the product in my box was full size. The sample is so little.

Sisley Paris Black Rose Cream Mask
$158.00 / 2.1 oz. Full Size

I love Sisley products so I was excited to see this in my box! This mask claims to offer “instant youth.” That’s a pretty hefty claim to live up to and I’m not sure that my skin looked instantly youthful again (I wish), but it did make my skin look smoother and much more radiant. I’m in love!

Alterna Bamboo Volume Pluming Strand Expand
$22.00 / 4.0 oz. Full Size

Soooo I’m already a little partial to the Alterna Bamboo line of products – everything I’ve tried has been amazing, and this is no exception! I have fine hair, so I definitely need all the plumping I can get. This lotion claims to strengthen, moisturize, add shine and of course, thicken the hair without weighing it down. And I really do feel like it does all of those things! It smells incredible, too.

Etre Belle Liplift Peel (not pictured)
$18.00 / 0.5 oz. Full Size

When I first saw this I had no idea what it was. Turns out, it’s a lip exfoliator! I found that it exfoliated nicely – it wasn’t too harsh and it left my lips completely smooth. Love it!

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush
$18.00 / 0.9 oz. Full Size

This lip stain that contains beeswax and ceresin wax for a smooth application and added hydration. The color, a blush pink, is really pretty, and I did find it to be quite moisturizing! The stain lasted a decent amount of time as well.

Alex & Ani Swan Charm Bracelet
$28.00 / Full Size

As a little bonus, Glossybox included an Alex & Ani charm bracelet in every box! This $28.00 bracelet more than pays for the price of the box itself! I received the swan charm bracelet, which represents grace, partnership and love. Perfect. :)


Overall, this was a fantastic box! I loved every single product that I found inside!

    I have to post up about this and actually have pushed it back to get a few other things up this week, but totally loved this box and my favorite part of course was the Alex and Ani bracelet, which I agree totally was worth it more then the box itself this month!! :)

  • Allie Mackin

    Glossy Box haha seems perfect for you! Funny I was just introduced to Sisely when a fellow blogger and I went to an event at Saks. It is VERY expensive and I am currently trying out the samples they gave me. My fellow blogger friend is a huge fan of them.

  • Heather Pranitis

    What a fun box to receive! And I’m loving the name and the name of your blog! Glad I stopped by today. I’m looking into this “glossybox”. A fun little box to receive every month.

    • Niki Caron

      Isn’t that funny that the names are so similar?! It’s meant to be. ;) Glossybox is great – I’ve been a subscriber for 2 years now and I’ve never gotten a bad box!

  • Kristin Swenson

    I love Alterna and I’m all for anything that’s thickening…so that’s calling my name!

    • Niki Caron

      I love Alterna too! It’s a great product!

  • Kay❤Cake

    Love the bracelet ~ and I am most interested in the Liplift peel! It looks just like a lip balm stain thing!

    • Niki Caron

      Oh that’s the Jelly Pong Pong lip blush! The peel isn’t pictured (oops!). Sorry about the confusion!
