May 2014 GlossyBox - See It, Love It, THEN Buy It!

I think over the years you guys have all figured out I am not big on beauty box subscriptions. Asside from Julep I have NEVER stuck with one for more than a month (though I am seriously considering the blush box!!).

Then I saw this May glossybox and I HAD TO have one! So I subscribed. Sorry Canadians, this is only available in the United States (although you can order it for $40 on the Bergdorf Goodman website - well worth the extra $19 possibly). So why did I buy one? And why might you want one even if you have to buy it off the website for $40? Let me go through what is in it.

First and foremost, its $21 and it comes with a $25 gift card that is a true gift card. Or so Glossybox promises. Not a coupon or discount code, but a true gift card without restrictions (though I am sure this will end up being corrected in some form. I find this too good to be true). So if you like/use nothing in the box, you have already made $4.

Now, what comes inside? 6 premium samples. But saying it could be any beauty items that Bergdorf sells really leaves too much room for surprise for my liking. So here is the list of possible options. You WILL get 6 of the folllowing:

You will be receiving six of the following 15 items listed below. Each box is guaranteed to contain one sample from each of the following vendors, Lancer, Napoleon Perdis and Revive. Please note that the assortment of product is random, items pictured in the photo are an example representation of what the customer may receive. (The remaining three samples are picked at random.)
1. Alterna CAVIAR CC Cream 25ml/0.84 oz
2. Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme Cologne Absolue 7.5ml/0.25 fl oz
3. Lancer Eye Contour Lifting Cream 5ml/0.16 fl oz
4. Lancer Lift Serum Intense 5ml/0.16 fl oz
5. Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Skin Primer 15ml/0.5 fl oz
6. ReVive Intensite Volumizing Eye Serum 3ml/0.1 fl oz
7. ReVive Eye Renewal Serum Firming Booster 3ml/0.1 fl oz
8. Chantecaille Brilliant Gloss 3ml/0.1 oz
9. Iluminage Skin Prep Gentle Cleanser 15ml/0.5 fl oz
10. Kevyn Aucoin The Essential Mascara 4g/0.14 oz
11. Lancome Absolue L'Extrait 5ml/0.16 fl oz
12. Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara 4.5g/0.15 oz
13. Sulwhasoo Timetreasure Renovating Cream 5ml/0.16 fl oz
14. Aerin Beauty Rose Hand & Body Cream 15ml/0.5 fl oz
A silky, lightweight rose-scented hand and body cream that drenches skin with moisture.
15. Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Skin Primer, Box of 7 Sachets, (1ml/0.03 fl oz)

I am REALLY hoping I get the tube and not the packets of the primer! A $13 value vs a $6 value would be nice. And I would love to try the eye serums. I love the hourglass mascara, chantecaille glosses and Alterna products in general so those would be awesome. The only two things I REALLY don't want are the rose scented lotion or perfume. And for essentially no risk I HAD to get this!!

If you want this box, go to glossybox.com and sign up (you will get the may box still as of the time of this post). The cost is $60 if you prepay for 3 months or $21 for a month to month subscription like I purchased (you can cancel at anytime). Or if you are outside the USA, go to the Bergdorf Goodman website to pick up the box for $40.
