For over a year I have watched girls in the UK receive their monthly shipments of Glossybox. All the while longing that they shipped to the States. There was always really great and true Deluxe Size Samples in their boxes. I have been searching for a box like them for quite a while. Mine, as well as many other beauty junkies all over the US had our Glossybox prayers answered last month when subscriptions opened up for Glossybox US! I was so excited; I literally stalked their Facebook page waiting for their website to open up. Being a beauty subscription service junkie I know that they will post that the subscriptions are open on Facebook long before I ever receive a notice in an email. On May 10th, 2012 it happened…They posted on Facebook that we could finally sign up. I was lucky enough to catch it and sign up, and boy am I glad I did because this is the best box I have ever gotten!
At $21 a month Glossybox is pricier than other services, but it is money well spent.

Aside from a horrendously long shipping time, which as a new company glitches are to be expected. I have absolutely no gripes about my 1st Glossybox. I love, love, love my Glossybox and I cannot wait until I receive my June Glossybox. I’m not sure if the subscriptions for Glossybox are currently open but signing up to be on the waiting list is well worth it.
