I saw many bloggers from US showing what they got in their Glossy Box and I was jealous to say the least. They received brands like AmorePacific, Burberry, and Zoya. Someone tweeted me when I mentioned that on Twitter. They said it’s the first box for US so it would probably be great and asked if what we’ve been getting in the Canadian one was bad. I never thought what Glossy Box Canada had put out was bad until this box.
I opened my box and instantly frowned. What is this?? All I could see was drugstore brands staring back at me.

When you think about it, it can be counted as a good deal since we get 4 full sized items. The problem is that these subscription boxes are supposed to let us try out higher end brands before purchasing. All the items aside from one is available at drugstores and relatively cheap enough for us to try them out without the help of these boxes. Not to mention the fact that I got the Olay and Gillette products in Loose Buttons and was already not impressed. Overlapping of products can be expected when you subscribe to more than one of these beauty boxes but to get a bunch of drugstore brands again kind of sucks. If this was my first box, like it was for a lot of people, I would be rethinking my subscription.
Estimated Value: $61.04
