The 2018 GlossyBox US Advent Calendar is a 25 day beauty advent calendar full of fun beauty surprises.
The box is $99 and you can save $10 when you subscribe to any GLOSSYBOX subscription with code GBSALE!
NOTE: The US version differs significantly from the UK version.
This advent calendar is beautifully packaged.
It has a satin ribbon tied around it to keep the box from opening during transit.
There’s one small box to open each day leading up to Christmas day!
One of the panels feature empowering words.
The gold foil design is quite stunning!
I’m really excited to see everything they have in store for me!
You can even make the box stand so that it will be easier to see the contents on your vanity.
You can pull each box out to see the contents.
I love the fact the boxes come in different sizes and colors too.
From rectangular shaped boxes to the small square boxes, this advent calendar looks promising.
The packaging is really high-quality. It makes a perfect gift!
These are the first five boxes!
I’m glad that there’s protective packaging inside to prevent items from getting damaged.
There’s a lip balm, lip gloss, makeup brush, finishing powder, and eyeliner. All these are makeup essentials ideal for everyday use!
Next are boxes 6 to 10. It’s fun guessing what items come inside!
The next batch included skincare goodies, like a concentrated restoring mask, a serum, and even a hand cream. The invisibobble and the lipstick are usable too!
It’s Skin Cookie & Hand Cream ($9.99)
From here, it only gets more exciting!
The next selection is quite trendy with the perfume and plumping serum. There’s also a deep cleansing oil, a lip balm, and a fat eye stick.
Doctor Lip Bang’s Lip Freak ($4.95)
DHC Skincare Deep Cleansing Oil ($5.50)
Eyeko Fat Eye Stick – Satin ($7.50)
The boxes are getting bigger for 16 to 20!
There’s a hydrating mist, nail polish, lip primers, and sugar lip scrub.
3ina The Lip Primer ($11.27)
It gets more exciting as we get to the last five boxes!
There’s another makeup brush. The loose powder and lip finish are beauty must-haves, while the rice water cleanser and hair spa treatment are both ideal for pampering!
Koh Gen Do Pure Cotton & Spa Cleansing Water ($3 + $6.8)
The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser ($6.98) Wish they’d saved a bigger wow or more fun item for Day 25!
GlossyBox Advent Calendar contains plenty of surprises that will make you enjoy pampering yourself. The products range from hair masks and serums to powders, eye liners, lipsticks, toners, and hydrating serums. You’ll even get a nail lacquer in one of the boxes here! What I love about this collection is that they came from mostly well-known brands and that they were chosen to promote a better skin care and beauty routine.
The total value of this collection is about $272. We found quite a few discrepancies between the info card and the items and we didn’t calculate the value at the promised $325. Nevertheless, it’s still packed with lots of great goodies!
