May 2018 GLOSSYBOX Subscription Box Review

We received this box for our review. Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

GLOSSYBOX is a monthly beauty subscription box with at least 5 luxury samples – many full sizes – per month for $21.

TIP: This box is always available through the end of the month, so you can still get this box! Note there may be other variations – this is just one!

NOTE: If you choose to subscribe to a recurring Monthly Plan between the 15th to the end of the month, you automatically agree to following month’s charge.

So pretty! The box is in yellow, while the tissue paper used for packaging looks like a map.

This month’s theme is Jet Setter.

There’s a short note from GlossyBox.

The fold out sheet lists the items we got for this month! GLOSSYBOX has a few variations on their boxes, not all will be exactly the same.

I like what I’m seeing so far!

Everything in my May box!

Included in the box is a promotional card from The Economist.

You can use the link indicated and try The Economist for 12 weeks for only $12.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil ($5.50) The key ingredients of this cleansing oil include olive oil, which easily dissolves makeup without residue, and invigorating rosemary leaf oil which makes your skin soothed, refreshed, and balanced.

It emulsifies to cleansing milk when you rinse and it effortlessly breaks down waterproof makeup, sunscreen, and excess oil. The formula is ideal for normal and combination skin. Also, it doesn’t contain parabens, phthalates, colorants, mineral oil, or artificial fragrance.

John Masters Organics Evening Primrose Shampoo ($6) Along with herbs, plant extracts, and essential oils, this shampoo has a natural foaming agent that softens dry and damaged hair. It is safe to use with color-treated hair and ideal for dry hair too.

More information about the shampoo is indicated on a description card. The shampoo contains evening primrose that strengthens hair, and hyaluronic acid which helps lock in moisture to each strand. The best thing is that it doesn’t make my hair oily and instead makes it soft and manageable.

John Masters Organics Lavender + Avocado Shampoo + Conditioner ($9) To pair with the Evening Primrose Shampoo is this conditioner infused with soothing lavender oil and moisturizing avocado. You just have to leave it in for 5 minutes before rinsing for intense conditioning results. It also helps restore vitality and strengthen damaged hair, thanks to soy protein.

More information about the conditioner is indicated on a description card. Its formula is quite thick, so make sure to work it evenly from the root to the tips of your hair. It smells good too. However, this one is more effective for thick and curly hair than for my fine and limp hair.

Tree Hut Skincare Refining Rose Moisturizer ($14.97) A moisturizer and sunscreen in one, this formula glides on smoothly and is absorbed by the skin quickly. It means there’s no tacky feeling when it’s applied, but you still have to reapply as needed or after swimming. Although it says Refining Rose, it didn’t really smell like roses.

It has rosehip seed oil, sea buckthorn, and carrot seed oil to hydrate and protect our skin all day from UVA/UVB. These ingredients help in regenerating damaged skin tissue and soften fine lines. It has glycerin that locks in moisture and it doesn’t have parabens, formaldehyde donors, petroleum, phthalates, sulfates, DEA, and mineral oil.

Proenza Schouler Arizona Perfume ($9.66 on Ebay) I love this travel-sized perfume! It has a lot of notes, but I distinctly smell the powdery Orris in there. I get the earthy and dry smell so, yeah, Arizona!

LaRitzy Cosmetics Shade Stix In Aloha ($24) I love that the brand is cruelty-free and vegan. I’m sure this creamy consistency can do a good contour or may work as a killer bronzer.

However, Aloha is a shade way too dark for me, so it’s best to use as under foundation serious contouring for a lighter-skinned gal like me, but probably an every-day product for those with darker skin. It’s great to see they are including more diverse shades for base makeup.

Everything’s a hit except for the shade stix because it wasn’t in my shade. But no worries, the beautiful packaging and the rest of the products won me over. The tandem of shampoo and conditioner will work wonders on dry hair, and they smell really refreshing! Speaking of smell, the Arizona perfume just reminds me of the Grand Canyon. By that alone, the theme of the box is already successful. The tea tree sunscreen is a must-have for any traveler and to keep the freshness, we can wipe the grime away with the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil. This box is indeed jampacked with beauty and skincare items ideal for any jet-setter!
