Glossybox June 2012

I received my June Glossybox in the mail yesterday.

In the box:
Ahava Mineral Botanic Hibiscus & Fig Velvet Cream Wash - 3 oz.
First Aid Beauty Smooth Shave Cream - 2 oz.
Ofra Cosmetics Eye Shadow ICE (in Dumb Plum) - Full Size
vBeauté Lite Up, Buying Time, & Eye Never - 3 x 0.033 oz.
Wella Professionals Enrich Moisturizing Treatment - 0.84 oz.
Bonus: A Perfume Organic Urban Organic Vial

Unfortunately, my Ahava leaked some in the box and when I got it the inside of the box was sticky. About half was gone, but there's still enough to try out. It didn't get on anything paper except the Ahava label itself, so I just wiped everything down. I emailed Glossybox and they contacted me right away, so we'll what happens.

I can't wait to try everything out. I am going to try out the Ofra Eyeshadow tonight. I'm not usually a fan of deep colors, but this is a pretty, shimmery dark plum. 

Edit: I tried out the Ofra Eyeshoadow ICE in Dumb Plum today and I made a swatch. I took a little from my arm and smudged it on my eyes. A little goes a long way. And this stuff is waterproof! I had to scrub my arm with soap and water for a few minutes to get everything off. 

 Left: Without flash. Right: With flash.

Edit #2: I went ahead and cancelled my account with Glossybox. I just don't trust them yet. Essentially everyone with Ahava had a problem with it leaking all over everything. The responded to me asking for a picture of my box, but I didn't take one before I cleaned up everything, so I don't think they'll do anything at all for me. I will resubscribe if I feel like they've gotten their shit together.


  1. I can't believe they wanted photo evidence of the ahava leak when they know it is a problem... I still haven't signed up for glossybox, and everything I hear is making me even more hesitant :(

    1. They still said they'd send me a replacement, but I cancelled anyway. I didn't have the problems some people did, but I had enough with being double charged and this spilling. Their customer service with others made my decision. I really want them to get their act together so I can enjoy this sub. :(
