I'm sure you have read plenty of Glossy Box reviews but I'm going to share mine just in case you haven't lol. I had wanted to order this box for awhile it seemed to have more high end brands that i really like hence the $10 more than birch box price .When i heard there was going to be a beauty blender for January i decided to go for it . I got my box at the end of the month here it is.
The box itself besides being pink is really nice and sturdy I'm a sucker for a nice box , you should see my laduree box collection haha. Here's a list of whats inside ..
Beauty blender : also comes with the cleaner which is nice , always remember to clean your brushes and applicators . I haven't used it yet but I'm excited to I'm going to do a post on beauty blender vs foundation brush next week .
Balance me super toning body wash : I had no idea they made body toning washes i knew they made face toner . I'll probably save this for trips since its travel size .
Bella pierre cosmetic mineral blush : The one actual makeup product i got is just way to harsh and dark of a color for my very fair skin it looks maroon .
Toni &Guy hair meet wardrobe : This is a seal salt texturizing hair spray . I actually tried this it remind s me of the bumble and bumble beach waves spray and its cheaper . I'm not the beach waves type chick but it might be fun to use during summer or when my hair is brown again.
VICHY aqualia thermal rich cream : I was really excited for this my skin is sensitive and dry this winter. After reading the reviews online i decided to hold off on trying this because even though it seems like its water based there' s a lot of chemicals in there and I don't want to aggravate my already sensitive skin .
Overall review , I was glad i ordered this because I did get my beauty blender I so wanted . The rest of the box was kind of a bust . I would have liked more actual makeup and I have read before some other people were unhappy about this . I think for being more then a lot of the other beauty boxes they should tailor it more to what you like . I did like that when i went to cancel it , I could do that online . A lot of other places make you call then they proceed to try and talk you out of it .
I might have stayed signed up if they had the skip a month feature so when you have the extra money you could get it ,if not skip a month . Also they don't charge you on a set day so if you wanted to cancel and forget you might already be billed . I might try this box again if they make any updates and changes to their service .

I took a little longer to post this but here goes...
For those who didn't read my first post i did the tiny tea 14 day teatox from your tea .
The claims are it helps reduce bloating ,sugar cravings ,good for your skin ,more energy and a bonus you may loose a few pounds . Here is a quick run through of the first few days.
Day 1 i felt really drained and dizzy and really hungry i heard these are signs its starting to work.
Day 2 a little less dizzy and also a killer headache .
Day 3 i got a huge burst of energy
Day 4 dizzy again
For the rest of the time I didn't see anymore bad side effects but to be honest i felt none of the good ones either . No increased energy or less bloating and definitely didn't have less sugar cravings.
Overall for me it was a big waste of money and this stuff was not cheap. I dieted and exercised during this time which is recommended and nothing . After i was done i read that apparently this tea doesn't work for everyone which i wish i would have read first but thats my fault .
It seems to have worked for a lot of people so i wouldn't advise against buying it but i would say its a pretty steep price just for a maybe .
Also i should note this review was written by me I was not paid or given this tea for free to try i bought it myself and this is my own review .
