Glossybox, found online at Glossybox.com, is a new monthly delivery service which sends its customers high end beauty and wellness products once a month for a low subscription cost.
According to their website, the goal of Glossybox is to provide their customers with a “luxury beauty experience” at an affordable cost of just $21 per month, if you choose the monthly service.
If you prefer, they also allow you to pay for a three month subscription up front for $60, a six month subscription for a one time fee of $115, and a one year subscription for a fee of $220. Regardless of the plan you choose, shipping within the United States will always be free.
Once you finish choosing the payment plan you prefer, you then must fill out a beauty profile which the company will use to better target products at your specific needs whenever that option is available.
Each Glossybox you receive will include five to six “luxury sized” beauty or wellness products from brands like Carol's Daughter, Dr. Brandt, fresh, and much more delivered directly to your door at the end of every month. A luxury sized product is better known as a travel or sample size.
There are other monthly subscription boxes which specialize in beauty products, like BirchBox and Ipsy Glam, which have a cheaper monthly subscription fee. However, Glossybox.com specifically promises that the value of your box each month will be more than twice the price of the products if you had purchased the same items in a regular retail store.
After you receive your products, you can then go online to their website to share your feedback and opinions on the products through personal reviews and surveys. Submitting this feedback online helps you earn “Glossydots” which you can collect until you earn a free Glossybox.
With a monthly subscription, people who have complaints or issues can cancel any time they choose – those who choose to pay for the discounted subscription fees up front are not eligible for refunds, unfortunately.

I fell for it, but will warn others. All those wonderful bloggers receive this boxes and make it look tempting. Instead you will receive highly over exaggerated price values on mostly sample products. I first subscribed in March 13, 2015, assuming that would beat the deadline to receive the March 2016, box. Well I finally got my products and believe them to worth less then even the $21 dollar amount you pay (they claim I would be receiving a $60 value in product) I received a sample lip product. A eyeliner, which i think at a drugstore I can find similarly priced at $5.00. A hand cream, the claim was $6.00, but I can get similar products for under $2.00. and a luxie brush they claim for sells for $16.00. I have seen similar quality brushes selling for under $5.00 at TJmaxx. Sorry luxie, but there are equal quality products selling for loads cheaper. And a sample of eye cream, with no instructions on use. Well after receiving my junk package (wish I spent the money on real quality stuff!) I decided this service was not for me, so of course I went to cancel. Imagine my surprise and disgust, that after I hit the cancel button, a tiny not shows up that I had to cancel by March 15, to avoid a charge for another box, for Aprils!! WTH!! Of course I promptly email customer service, who after a few days gets back to me and so "sweetly" I mean slyly tells me we are sorry to see you go, but will be charged for Aprils box, and then will be canceled. I mean seriously, I had another sub that i canceled and that was automatic, as long I canceled before the next billing date. Oh, but that is not the case with Glossybox. I found that to be extremely sly. They are company not to be trusted. So while all those unboxing you see are very tempting, then let the buyer be warned. This is one company that is very deceptive in it's business practices. Stay far far away!!
If you subscribe they will keep charging your card every year. They automatically charged my card $222 this month without warning and caused several checks to bounced in my account. Now they tell me I can't cancel because the new subscription has started and I have to receive the next 12 months of boxes. Total scam.
My wife subscribed to Glossybox and it has been a nightmare. The products are a joke so she called to cancel three different times but they keep charging us every month. We are on our fourth month and have had to notify the US Postal Inspector and file disputes for bank fraud. I also found out that in addition to charging consumers $21 for $2 worth of products, they charge the companies that provide the free samples between $20,000-$50,000. What a racket. The Postal Inspector representative said he was going to look into the legality of that business model.
