GlossyBox Subscription Box Review May 2017 With Coupons Inside

Review of the May 2017 GlossyBox Subscription Box.

Hey all you makeup dolls!  Are you ready to check out the May GlossyBox?  This box was jam packed with tons of goodies just like last month!  If you'd like to see what I got, what some of the products look like on me, and which ones were my favorites and why, please keep reading.  I have included a coupon for big money off your first box, plus a coupon for a free brow product as well.

GlossyBox is a beauty subscription box that offers full size and deluxe size samples of some of the most popular beauty and cosmetic brands on the market.  For just $21/month, you get a box jam packed full of beauty and skincare goodies whose value far exceeds what you pay for the box.  Each box includes free shipping, and you can cancel your subscription any time you like before the 15th of the month.  GlossyBox also offer 3,6, and 12- month options.  You save $4.50 if you do the 3-month option, $15 if you do the 6-month option, and $42 if you do the yearly option.

Let's dive right into my May GlossyBox.  

First, let me show off how beautiful these pale pink and black boxes are inside and out.  I am not exaggerating when I say that I think the GlossyBox has the prettiest box around.  

I untied the elegant black ribbon to find the following goodies inside:

May's GlossyBox contained eight products, five of which are trending beauty products worth over $74!!  Every monthly box contains two full-sized items as well.

Let's take a closer look at each item in the box:
1.  Skinn Cosmetics Bronze Goddess Shade & Blush Collection

This eyeshadow and blush palette was absolutely gorgeous and will help you achieve a true bronzed goddess look this summer.  I was absolutely ecstatic when I read that this palette was also completely talc free!! See my post, Cosmetic Ingredients To Avoid, to learn more about why I love talc-free makeup.

Here I am below with this palette on my eyes and cheeks.  

This was my favorite product in the box, and I will definitely be using this on the daily this summer and fall.

2.  Leighton Denny Expert Nails in the color Pillow Talk

Leighton Denny Pillow Talk Nail Polish shade

This is one of the full-size products in the box.  I had never tried Leighton Denny polish before and was incredibly impressed when I did.  Not only was the packaging about the slickest I've seen for nail polish, but the polish itself was extremely high shine, had excellent color payoff- I only needed one coat! - and it dried very quickly.  I can honestly say that Leighton Denny is my new holy grail of nail polish now after trying them out.

Here is what the color looked like on my nails.  You can really see how shiny and beautiful it is:

The shade Pillow Talk is a great color for a date night, any special occasion, or anytime you want to be extra cute and girly. 

3.  Spa To You Deep Pore Cleansing Facial Brush and Massager.

Spa To You Deep Pore Cleansing Brush and Facial Massager

This was one of the neatest products I received in my box.  This is very similar to other cleansing brushes except that it is not battery powered and relies on you to move the brush around with your hand.  The brush felt nice and exfoliating on my skin, but I would definitely make sure to cover your face with cleanser first as the brush may be a little rough on skin without cleaner.   I think this brush makes a great travel option for those who don't want to sacrifice their beauty routine while traveling, but also don't want to bring their battery-operated cleansing brush. 

4.  Vitry Nail Repair Treatment 

Vitry Nail Repair Treatment GlossyBox

This was a very cute little product that anyone that wears lots of fake nails would greatly appreciate.  Fake nails are very harsh on my natural nail bed and as a result my natural nails are very weak and brittle.  This nail repair product is supposed to help strengthen the nail and the company claims that a difference should be seen within two weeks.  

5.   Radial XXL Lip Liner in Nude

Radial XXL Lip Liner Nude
This was the second full size product that came in the May GlossyBox.  If you have been reading The Makeup Equation for a while, or if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I am obsessed with nude lips.  I was delighted to see this gorgeous nude lip liner in my box.  This liner has great reviews that boast of its beautiful color and long staying power.  I was not able to sample this particular liner because it contained synthetic wax which I am allergic too, (you can read more about this allergy to wax here: Wax Free Lip Product List).

6. NutraLuxe Retro Brow Prime and Extend Duo in Medium/Dark.

NutraLuxe Retro Brow Prime and Extend

This is an awesome little brow set that will help you fill your brows and make them appear thicker.  I have a coupon code at the end of this post that will give you one of these brow sets for free with your first box.  

7.  Beauty Mystery Product Shampoo & Conditioner Set.

The April and May GlossyBox contained a beauty shampoo and conditioner mystery set for customers to try and guess which brands they were.  I haven't decided which brand I think my May mystery shampoo and conditioner set is from, but they both smelled great regardless.

It's pretty obvious to see that the products you receive each month from GlossyBox are worth way more than the monthly cost of $21.  I cannot wait to share what I get in next month's box with you guys!

To thank you for being my reader, I would like to offer you some coupon codes.  Use  Spring50 to receive 50% off your first monthly box, or Spring25 to receive 25% off of the 3 or 6-month plan. Use code NUTRALUXE to receive a free NutraLuxe Retro brow duo brush with your first month of GlossyBox.
