GlossyBox is a UK subscription programme that sends you 5 miniature (sometimes full size) products each month for you to test at home for £10.00 + £2.95 shipping. If you live in the states you may have already heard of Birchbox, GlossyBox is the UK's alternative.

My thoughts on July's GlossyBox: It's amazing that there are full size products with this month, the Weleda body oil is the standout product for me. I would have loved a more neutral nail polish as the green just isn't that wearable. The eyelashes look great, I hated both perfume samples and the pigment from Illamasqua is "OK" nothing breathtaking.
My thoughts on GlossyBox overall: I think it's a fantastic concept and great value for money, especially if you are a product junkie like I am, I get to try new products each month without breaking the bank. I like not knowing what's in the box each month as it's a nice surprise, but it would also be great if we could select shades to suit us rather than end up with something we don't like. But I suppose it's a lucky dip, you win some you lose some. It also bothers me that my July GlossyBox can be different from your July GlossyBox. I know that a few people got different items, it would be fantastic if we could preview the box from a month before so we can choose what we would prefer.
