Glossybox January 2016 Review

Glossybox is monthly subscription box,  $21/month and you get five beauty products. They include a mix of deluxe trial and full size products. They have a nice rewards program. You have the opportunity to complete surveys for points called Glossydots, and then when you reach 1000 you receive the next month's box free. The boxes include different variations of products, so even if you read the spoilers you don't necessarily know what you will be receiving.
This month is back to the original Glossybox pink box. They have the highest quality boxes and they are perfect for gifting. The info card tells about the items and gives useful tips on using them.
Emite Make Up Diamond Heart Base Primer Illuminating - $12. This was a featured item and included in all boxes. A light primer that prepares the skin for a perfect makeup application. The skin will look radiant, smooth, and uniform. I am not sure what uniform means, but that's what it says. This can be worn alone or under BB cream or foundation.
minus 417 Foot Nourishing Cream - $8. This is foot cream. I would like it better, but I just don't like the packaging. This is great for cracked soles that are so common in the winter months. Has Dead Sea and aloe vera juice. The Dead Sea has over 21 minerals believed to remedy skin.
Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse Gentle Clarifying Treatment - $1.50. This is a clarifying rinse. Basically, this means you use it to remove the buildup of shampoo and other product from your hair. You can use weekly. After shampooing and conditioning, saturate your hair and rinse after 30 seconds. It says safe for all hair types and color treated hair. Even so, I probably wouldn't use unless I was ready to visit the salon anyway.
Royal Apothic Cream Crème To Go in Cutting Garden - $14. This is considered full size. I guess because the idea is it can easily fit into a handbag. Scents vary by box. Royal Apothic has the cutest packaging.

MeMeMe Lip Glide in Playful Peach - $12.50. Full size included. This is an apricot colored lipstick. I like that it is matte, but it's not my color at all.
This months Glossybox has an approximate value of $48. My favorite items this month are the Diamond Heart primer and the clarifying treatment.
