Glossybox November Review

Hey everyone! I have kind of a complicated review to share with you all today. Back during all the Black Friday sales I saw someone post that you could get November's Glossybox for $1 (supposedly this was a glitch, but Glossybox honored those purchases). I looked through the FAQ before placing my order to make sure I wouldn't be seeing any unwanted charges in the future. Several weeks later, already into the beginning of December, I still had not received November's box and I noticed a $21 Glossybox charge on my bank statement. Apparently in the fine print it was stated that if you ordered a box after the 14th of the month cancel deadline you were agreeing to purchase the following months box as well. The whole thing was so unclear and at the end of the day it just made me feel mislead and upset.

I contacted Glossybox and they agreed to refund the charge/cancel my December box. I also cancelled my subscription due to my distrust of the company after the incident. Regardless of all of this, I received my November box last week and wanted to share what was in it.

I will say that the packaging was beautiful and I was impressed by the quality of the box itself.

Here is what came in the box. I was super excited to see a nail polish! Everything else is kinda meh. To be honest it will all probably wind up in the trash in a few weeks except for the polish and maybe the 12 Benefits hair treatment.

From left to right:

Kryolan for Glossybox Blusher in Glossy Pink .09oz valued at $16.17
Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer .5oz valued at $11.25
Kneipp Herbal Bath Balancing Lavender 20ml valued at $4
12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment 1.5oz valued at $5
OPI Nail Laquer in Pink Outside the Glossybox full sized valued at $9.50

I looked at reveals of the November box that other people got and they received a blush from the brand So Susan Cosmetics. I got a Kryolan for Glossybox blush. It came looking like someone had been keeping it in their purse for weeks. Straight into the trash it goes.

Overall I did not think this was a good box in terms of what came inside, aside from the nail polish. Yes, the packaging was great but that can only get a company so far. I would never order anything from this company again based on the way they currently run their business. Maybe if some changes were implemented I would reconsider.
