So this was the second last box that Glossybox offered at $15. Last week all the subscribers received an email saying they’re increasing the price to $21!! That’s a crazy increase from $15! Current subscribers get the October box at $15 and after that it will also increase to $21 for them.
It’s very irritating because of the fact that GB’s items seems to be going down in value as time goes by. The amount of drugstore brands will be a big part of this company’s boxes too from what I can see. Paying $21 a month for drugstore brands seems pretty crazy.
Glymm had an increase from $10 to $12 but current subscribers got to stay at $10. Luxebox went from $12 to $26 every 3 months. After my last $15 box I’m going to be cancelling my Glossybox, sadly =

Zoya // Nail Polish (Shelby)

Full Size: 0.5oz/$8.00 || Received: 0.5oz/$8.00 (FULL SIZE)
Excited to try this out because I’ve never tried out Zoya polishes before even though I’ve been wanting to. I would prefer a different shade but oh well. At least it’s not neon like the Essie one I got in my Luxebox a few months back.
Alessandro International // Pedix Heel Rescue Balm

Full Size: 100ml/$19.95 || Received: 30ml/$5.99

[[ Shake to activate the DUAL FORMULA – part lightweight serum, part smoothing elixir – to fight frizz from the outside while hydrating hair from the inside. ]]
Full Size: 60ml/$14.99 || Received: 10ml/$2.50
Not sure if I would really have a use for this because my hair is pretty much stick straight. I don’t know if this product will just cause it to be oily or not.
Burt’s Bees // Lip Shimmer (Strawberry)

Full Size: 48 pack wipes/$12.50 || Received: 4 wipes/$1.04
I feel like Glossybox has been on the fence for me these last two boxes. There’s a sudden influx of a bunch of drugstore brands. I thought Glossybox initially fared a lot better when it comes to limiting the amount of drugstore brands included. I hope they don’t continue this trend because it’s starting to disappoint me.
Approximate Value: $29.51
