GlossyBox + Byrdie October 2013 Box Review

So excited for my first regular Glossybox! When I heard that they were teaming up with Byrdie, the all-things-beauty branch of Who What Wear, I knew I had to go for it! Glossybox is $21/month. If you sign up for the subscription through eBates you'll save $2.75, making it only $18.25 for your first month! 

I had heard so many wonderful things about the glorious packaging of this subscription and I was not disappointed!! Here's first looks:




How pretty is this?? Like a fancy present!

Seriously what it looked like when opened. So neat!




And the breakdown: 


Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Mascara, $23 - This was the spoiler for the box and I was sold! I'm serious about mascara/lashes and am hoping to be wowed! The textured/snakeskin packaging is unique and fun, too!


Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream, $12 - Fresh is one of those brands that always seems classy and expensive to me. Always true? Who knows, but they must have great marketing! LOL!

Balance Me Tinted Lip Salve, $16.50 - Always fun to get a full size lip gloss! It's the time of year when chapped lips start to be an issue in my house full of girls and we keep glosses stashed everywhere! 


Bvlgari Eau Parfumee at the Vert, $6 - This is such a nice sized sample, it's maybe twice what these little pour/dab vials usually are? Definitely enough to really get a feel for the fragrance

Sesha Rejuvenating Anti-Wrinkle Mask, $9 - This single use mask is labelled "for mature skin," which would have hurt my feelings if I didn't know that everyone got the same thing! Haha!

* Use code GLOSSY40 to save 40% and get free shipping on order of $50+ at seshaskin.com


I came up with a total value of $66+ for this box. I'm super excited about all of these products and think it was a great deal for only $18.75 (after my eBates link)! The whole presentation was nice enough that I'm definitely going to stick around and see what the next couple of months bring!

    1. I've seen so many amazing reviews but the only experience I'd had was the Martha Stewart box - which I thought was disappointing. I really liked this one!!

  2. I'm always tempted to try all the different subscription boxes, but I never do.. That Tarte mascara may seal the deal!

    1. I want to love it, I really do, but I cancelled when I saw the November spoiler! A $27 eyeshadow is definitely not what I need in my life at this point! LOL!
