Special April/May Boxes news

I unsubscribed from Glossybox for April, but there is a special limited Mother’s Day Box curated with BeautyBlitz for sale. $30 gets you a full-sized essie polish and other deluxe sized samples including a Benetint and an Estee Lauder mascara. (Edit: April 24 / Box contents have changed!

For that price + a little bit more, I would rather get Allure’s summer box (on sale Tuesday April 23)!
