October Glossy Box Canada

My GlossyBox came today! Yay! I was very curious to open it because of the price change. For those of you who don't know, Glossy Box went from $15/month to $21/month, quite a jump! This month I got mine for $15 because I have been a subscriber for a while. If I stick with it, next month my bill will change to the $21/month fee. Let's see how convincing this box is!

Here's a peek inside! My Box is V2.

Inside were the following items:
  1.  A 5mL sample of Jouviance Rejuvenating Anti-Aging Cream (Normal-Dry Skin) - $9.83
  2. A FULL SIZE Modelco Flipstick Duo - $38.75
  3. A FULL SIZE Zoya Nail Polish in Emme - $8.00
  4. A 50ml sample of Sebastian Professional Trilliance Shampoo - $3.16
  5. A 50ml sample of Sebastian Professional Trilliance Conditioner- $3.39
  6. A FULL SIZE Gillette Venus & Olay Razor- $16.99
Total Value of Products:  $80.12
(The price values reflect the product sizes that I received in my GlossyBox and their pricing.)

*The box also contained a coupon for FREE Satin Care shave gel with the purchase of any Venus cartridge & a code for 10% off any purchase at www.bijouxneron.com. The code is GB10.

Overall, I'm pleased with the value of the box, however I'm not overly excited about anything. I have received razors & Zoya polish in previous Glossy Boxes. I feel like they are repeating themselves. I still consider myself to be quite young and don't really see the need for anti-aging cream. My other problem with this box is that they were advertising it to be a Breast Cancer Awareness themed box. Yes, the lip duo & nail polish were both shades of pink, but other than that there was nothing that stood out. Not one product had the awareness ribbon on it. I don't think they pulled off the theme well at all.

I'm still undecided whether to cancel my subscription or not. a $6 increase is a lot. I have also recently gotten off the TopBox waiting list and am excited to try it for only $12/month! (an increase from $10 before). I'll be sure to let you know how I like TopBox & how it compares to GlossyBox. I have to say, to me it seems like every second GlossyBox impresses me & I have had great experience dealing with their customer service, I'm really still on the fence here! What are you planning to do?
