If I had to award a prize to the sub box company that sent the BEST packaging for the past year, it would go hands down to Glossybox for their June "Stars & Stripes Edition" box! Glossybox always sends their products in a beautiful gift-quality box but the red, white and blue design of the June box surpassed all previous boxes as far as I'm concerned. Outstanding job Glossybox!
Inside is just as colorfully patriotic with four luxury size products and one full size product nestled in a bed of red crinkle shreds.
This box includes a nicely curated assortment of high end brands for the nails, hands, eyes, hair and body.
In addition to the explanatory card that tells about the products, there is also a discount card to be used at any C. Wonder store or on their site. The exact amount is a secret until you check out but can be worth up to $500. C. Wonder is new to me but it looks like a fun shopping site full of cool clothing, accessories and home goods. Alas, my card was worth only $5.00 at checkout. However, there are several eBates deals available for C. Wonder that really improve on the overall deal.
The first item in the box is Platinume Gold Imperial Repair Hand Therapy by Camille Beckman. This hydrates, restores and softens your hands. It has a light citrus scent and includes botanicals like sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil and the brand's signature herbal complex. Full size retail $10.
One of the buzzed about spoilers for this box was the stunning StrangeBeautiful navy and red nail lacquer duo called Colorbloc. This patriotic pairing was designed exclusively for Glossybox and is especially nice for travel due to its compact size. Full size retail $18.
Next is a full size chunky eye shadow pencil by Sumita Beauty in a gorgeous champagne color. This universally flattering golden shade with a hint of shimmer can be used as a highlight or to color the entire lid. This goes on with silky smooth application and won't smudge or smear. Full size retail $18.
There is a Texture Dry Finishing Spray by Rusk. This talc-free (no white flakes) dry hair styling spray that gives an instant boost by adding texture and shape. Full size retail $18.
Last we have Patagonia Body Butter from Ayres. This all-natural body formula has a very light herbal scent composed of jasmine, rosemary, lavender, bergamot and fir essential oils. Full size retail $28.
As nice as these products are I'm still completely wowed by the box! They could have included just about anything and I would have been a happy camper. All these luxury samples are icing on the cake as far as I'm concerned. Presentation matters and Glossybox, more than anybody else, gets that!
This box is still available for $21.00. If you're interested, click here. Since they've already come out with a couple of July spoilers, I'm not sure how much longer the Stars & Stripes Edition box will be on their site. Grab it soon, if you're so inclined!
If you sign up for Glossybox, use the code HAIR at checkout to get a free Nioxin Diamax Hair Thickener, a $50 value. Also, you can get $2.75 cash back if you sign in through eBates.
