Glossy Box unboxing~April box


I have to admit, this is the coolest "box" that I've received so far from Glossy Box. The art work and the cosmetic bag comes from ThuFri.com, a high end fashion hand bag website out of L.A. The make-up bag also came with a gift card to the ThuFri.com website with a discount code to apply during checkout. FYI: my code is for 50% off.
Considering the price of the hand bags and totes, I'd estimate this cosmetic bag to be about $20.00 or more. Also this month's Glossy box reminds me so much of an Ipsy bag. There's many products that I'm not so thrilled about, and I hope they don't continue this way.

Here's what I got:
Marrackesh split end mender~ Full size $5.99 for 1 oz.~Not a super, fantastic product or high end. Highly fragranced. Too much for my liking.

Aerin "Waterlily Sun" fragrance~O.k., so I don't like most perfumes. This one is a light clean fragrance-one I would not wear, but I've decided to spray it in my lingerie drawers. The size is a mere .3 oz. The full size product is 1.7 oz. at a whopping $110.00.

Estee Lauder Enlighten dark spot correcting night serum~ Finally, a skin care product! This little sample size is probably not enough product for me to really see a difference in my skin, but I'm trying it. Nice consistency, no over-powering fragrance, or harshness. Full size: $62.00

Obsessive Compulisve Cosmetics Stained Gloss: Don't like the color; this will probably end up in a giveaway. I got the full size- $18.00

And last, but certainly not least, the Julep gel eye glider pencil in bronze shimmer. I already have a number of these gel eye liners. They're great. And water-proof. Once applied, they won't budge. Retail price: $16.00
Overall, you do get a lot for the money ($21.00 monthly), but like I said, I'm not crazy about all the products this month. Hopefully I'll get more skin and body products next month. You know, they do have a customer profile and questionare. Hopefully they'll follow it. (One of the reasons why I quit getting Ipsy bags.)
What's your favorite subscription service that you get?
