July Glossy Box Canada

Good Afternoon!

Much to my surprise, today I received my July Glossy Box!  Just squeezed in for July lol.  I was pretty impressed with Canada Post (we really can't say that too often) because living in Vancouver, my delivery date was August 5th, over a week early!

So I decided to get on posting right away because many girls haven't received them and I know many like to see spoilers.

Riley was just ecstatic when I got my box.

This month the product card was actually `glossy` 

Haha you can basically see me in it..

Here is a lovely advertisement for BeautySoClean telling us all that our makeup is filthy:

Lets see what was inside:

Glossy Box you haven`t disappointed me yet!  The first thing that I gravitated towards was the:

1. Zoya Nail Polish

Full Size: $8
Sample Size: FULL SIZE

A lovely bubblegum pink.  I`m going to get plenty of use out of this.

Here a a picture in different light:

2. Alessandro International - Heel Rescue Balm

Full Size: 100ml for $19.95
Sample Size: 30ml @ $6

This is a rather generous size sample from a brand I have not heard of before.  It smells lovely and when I finish my bottle of Curel foot cream we got last month I'll give it a shot.

3. John Frieda Frizz-Ease Sheer Solution

Full Size: 60ml for $15
Sample Size: 10ml for $2.50

Haha is it bad that I am more excited by the bottle than the product? I have tried many John Frieda frizz products in the past and none have worked well for me.  That being said, I have never tried this one so fingers crossed its ok.

Here's a better picture of the 2 layers you have to shake before using.  is anyone else's only 3/4 full?

4. Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer

Full Size: 2.6g for $6
Sample Size:  FULL SIZE

Another full sized product!  I have always wanted to try the Burt's Bees lip products because I have heard wonderful things about them.  However, this shade is sort of a put off:

It's almost a red/orangey color and just isn't for me.  I'm happy I had the opportunity to try it out though!

5. Dove Softening Creme Body Wash

Full Size: 200ml for $6
Sample Size: FULL SIZE

I honestly don't think I have owned this many full sized bath and body items in my life since I have joined glossybox.  This has a decent scent but I am like most other girls out there who probably have 2 or 3 body washes in the shower at any given moment.  I'll give it a shot.

6. BeautySoClean Sanitizer Wipes 

Full Size: 48 wipes for $12.50
Sample Size: 4 wipes for about a $1

I'm thinking this is just a bonus item.  Doesn't anyone remember that we already received these in our first box? and I still don't feel the need to use them lol.  

Total I Paid for the Box: $15
Total Value of the Box: $29.50

So, as you can see Glossy Box is really good at giving you value for your money as the box is worth twice what you paid for it.

What I also think they are doing well with is the variety they are providing with brands I would have never thought to try (Dove excluded) they put makeup, hair care, body care, foot care, nail polish and even sanitizing wipes.

So what did you think of the box?  I can't wait to put on the Zoya Nail Polish because I don't own any!

If you want a box of your own I would be much obliged if you would use my referral link



  1. Great box. I havent gotten mine yet, but I couldnt resist no looking to see what we got. I heard blondes got a full size john frieda product while everyone else only got that small frizz ease product

    1. I had no Idea! what a rip! oh well I love the nail polish I got so its all good!

  2. Love your box, especially the Zoya polish you received!

  3. Nice! I can't wait to get mine. I might not have been able to help myself checking what others are getting in their boxes, ruining that surprise, but I can't know what colour I'll get for the nailpolish! :)

  4. I didn't swatch my burt's bees yet but it looks pretty pigmented for what I assumed was a chapstick of sorts. I wonder how it will look on me? I usually don't wear red lip colours!

  5. Oh wow, this looks like a great Glossybox! I'm jelly that you have yours already! I know what you mean about the bath and body products though, I'm running out of space. I think I need a whole room dedicated to samples!

  6. Hey just to let you know i nominated your blog for a Leibster award!!

  7. OMG thats so cute!
    My cat also loves a box! Even though he is gigantic and barely fits any..

  8. Lol my cats love the Glossybox boxes too! I got a gorgeous purple colour for my nail polish and the extra strength frizz-ease serum. I got a tiny sample of Eucerin instead of the Burt's Bees lip balm too. I'm ok with that since I'm not a lippie person, but the sample is like 2 uses lol.

  9. I got a pink gloss...but I think the red would be super pretty as well. Was it more sheer when you tried it? The wipes were SUCH a bummer to have as an item! Your kitty is so cute!
