May 2012 Glossy Box - U.S. Edition

As many of you already know, GLOSSYBOX launched in the United States.  Even though I subscribed as soon as I received their e-mail, I did not receive an April box.  My subscription started with the May 2012 subscription themed "Beauty Around the World."


"At GLOSSYBOX, we promised you a world of beauty; and this month, we deliver it.  From classic English Roses to the refreshing fields of Provence, France you will discover beauty in all its universal delights.  Immerse yourself in the culture of Italy where even the most utilitarian items can be considered a work of art, or the spirit of South Korea, where tradition and high-technology collide.  Of course, it is always the home-grown beauties that continue to fascinate and inspire.  So venture forward, explore, discover and enjoy your journey."

The shipment contained 5 items, 2 full-sized items, 3 deluxe samples and 1 bonus item from various countries.  Items and descriptions, as depicted on the GLOSSYBOX insert are as follows:

Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Refreshing Hydra-Gel (South Korea) - Deluxe Sample - 0.27 fl oz/8 ml; Full Size $100; 1.7 oz - A hydrating gel moisturizer that leaves your skin feeling bright and refreshed.  Notice your complexion visibly improve, giving you confidence and a natural glow.

Burberry Beauty Lip Mist Natural Sheer Lipstick in Copper No. 202 (UK) - Deluxe Sample - 0.8g/.028 oz; Full Size $30; 0.12 oz - A creamy lipstick that offers a hint of natural, sheer color leaving your lips moist and dewy.  The perfect present for the perfect pout.

Marvis Whitening Toothpaste (Italy) - Full size $7.50; 1.23 oz - Make the most of your splendid smile with a whitening toothpaste dripping in cool mint freshness, all while protecting against decay, tartar, and plaque.

Phyto Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Mask for Dry Hair (France) - Deluxe Sample - 50 ml/1.7 fl oz; Full Size $38; 6.7 oz - Indulge in luxury and aroma with a conditioning treatment that moisturizes and detangles strands without weighing hair down.  Nourish, revive, and delight.

Zoya Summer 2012 - Beach and Surf Collection Nail Polish in Tracie (USA) - Full Size $8; 0.5 oz - Dive into the creamy shades and shimmering sea foils of the Zoya Beach & Surf Collection.  Allow your nails to go on vacation every day.

Bonus Item: GLOSSYBOX Blush Brush - Crafted from the finest goat's hair - an essential for any world beauty jetsetter

Overall rating: Booyah! (though I am disheartened that I did not receive the April Box, like other bloggers received.)

I am so excited that GLOSSYBOX has finally come to the USA and my memorable box arrived a day after Memorial Day!  Subscriptions cost $21 per month (

Will keep you posted on future shipments.
