Disclaimer; Norway’s Glossybox might differ a bit from, for example, the american ones. We are very particular about products and everything apparently needs to be made for Nordic hair and skin and whatnot. Luckily we get products to try that we don’t necessarily see in stores here all the time. I’ve heard about a couple of the brands, mainly from watching other Glossybox unboxing videos. I also pay for the boxes out of my own pocket, so this post is not sponsored in any way.
As per usual, the box this month is a pale pink with a black ribbon, and even if i have many already, i always keep the ribbons tied up to re-purpose them.
There’s five items in my box and they all seem to have survived the shipping, which is always a plus! The box felt really heavy, and i quickly understood why when i saw the full sized body lotion. This month’s theme is “Beauty Kick”.
The first thing i received was a really nice shade of eyeshadow from Nabla. It is a refill for a palette, so the pan is full size, and it is in the shade “Ground state”. It looks very brown in the picture but it is more purple in real life, on the website it is described as a “Hazelnut duo chrome with a lavender-mauve glare”. This product is vegan.
This is a full sized pan, and the value is 65 NOK / ~$8
The next product i would describe as a deluxe size sample. It is a sample of a mask/primer/moisturizer from Thisworks. The full size is 40 ml while this sample is 20 so it’s half of the size. It is supposed to be an all round kind of primer and i’m looking forward to trying it.
This is a sample size worth around 180 NOK / ~21.50. The full size is 360 NOK / ~$43
This is an eyebrow pencil from Model Launcher Cosmetics. It says in the info card in the box that i was supposed to receive the shade light brown, which would have been too light anyways, but it says Taupe on the pencil. I checked their website and Taupe was not an option so maybe it is a new shade? I’m pleased either way.
This is a full sized product and it is worth 120 NOK / ~$14.50
Then there’s this product! I have already tried all of the other lotions in the Garnier respons line and this is a new product that is not out in stores yet. It smells kind of strange since it contains oat cream and almond milk, but it felt very moisturizing on my hands, at least.
This is a full sized product and it is worth 40 NOK / ~$5
And last, but not least, i received a beautiful vegan lipstick from Medusa’s Make-up. It is in the shade “Sugar Daddy”, and to be honest, it is the perfect shade for my lips. It looks almost like a nude for me and i love it! The only downside is that it kind of smells like Crayola crayons, but I’m willing to look past that since the shade is so nice.
This is a full sized product and it is worth 110 NOK / ~$13 (it costs $12 on their website).
After the success with last months box i didn’t expect this one to exceed my expectations even further, but it did! I’m blown away by the quality of the products, and how well they matched the colors i usually go for. Especially with the taupe eye brow pencil instead of light brown, which wouldn’t have worked for me at all.
The subscription costs 179 NOK / ~$21 per month and it includes shipping and handling. The total value for the box was 515 NOK / ~$62 so i am extremely pleased!
Do you subscribe to any boxes? Which and why?
