April GlossyBox Review, plus Mother’s Day Beauty Box $430 of Luxury Products for only $40, Plus Rebate







As usual, I LOVE this month’s April GlossyBox!!!  I am addicted to beauty products and I get so much free, but every month when I find the beautiful GlossyBox sitting on my doorstep, it feels like Christmas!!

This month’s GlossyBox does NOT disappoint!  I love everything that came, and I still can’t get over how much you get for the small price you pay.  While couponing comes with so many makeup and beauty freebies, (if you want to see how, click here to see my “Beauty on a Budget and Makeup for Free Page“) luxury beauty products are rarely at a large discount, much less free.  It is a great way to try them without the luxury price tag!  And, even better, right now you can get PAID just to try it!

Not only do they have awesome boxes monthly, but they offer special one time boxes as well.  Right now they have the Mother’s Day Box which has six full sized luxury beauty products worth $430 for only $40!

Swagbucks is offering 450 Swagbucks, the equivalent of $4.50, just to purchase a monthly GlossyBox!  That is how I got started in the GlossyBox program, and have been getting the GlossyBox Beauty Boxes since.  It is my favorite subscription beauty box, and I have tried them all!  I have also been using Swagbucks for years.  In my opinion it is THE MOST IMPORTANT site in the savings/couponing world, and a great way to both save and MAKE money!  I have not had any problems with them, however, if in the rare event one were to arise, their customer service is awesome, and they are quick to fix any problems.  Just their printable coupons which they pay you for every one you use, means you can make a nice amount each year just off your regular purchases.  These are the exact same manufacturer’s coupons that are offered on other coupon sites, only you receive the payment for using them, instead of the site you print from.

One Time Mother’s Day GlossyBox:

HURRY!  This will sell out soon.  All the monthly boxes sell out as well, so the only way to guarantee a box is to have a subscription in place.  The Mother’s Day box has 6 Full Sized Products worth $430 for only $40!  Super deal available, if you get a 12 month GlossyBox Subscription, you get the Mother’s Day Box for only $20, 50% off!

How to order GlossyBox and receive your payment from Swagbucks:

You can order a month to month subscription which you can cancel at any time.  However, I think you will love it as much as I do, and you can save money by purchasing several months in advance.  When I first ordered I did a month to month subscription just to review the boxes and to see if I would like them consistently.  Once I received my first few boxes I was hooked, so I then did the extended subscription to save money.   In the past I have ordered great “Welcome Boxes” from other beauty box services, but then the boxes that came later were never as nice.  This is NOT the case with GlossyBox.  Each box is worth way more than what you pay for it, and we also get special Limited Edition boxes several times a year.

Month to Month-$21

3 Months-$60

6 Months-$115

12 Months-$220


  • Sign up or sign in to your free Swagbucks account by clicking here.
  • Click the Swagbucks logo on the top left of the tool bar which will bring you to the “Home” page with featured offers.  There is a “Sort By” box on the right, search by “Highest Payout.”  Scroll through the offers until you see it.  It looks like this.


  • Click on it, and it will take you to the GlossyBox site.  You have to click through using Swagbucks to receive payment.  Sign up for a box with whichever plan you prefer.

That is it.  Swagbucks will confirm your purchase shortly, and 450 Swagbucks will be automatically added to your account once confirmed.  This equals $4.50.  Swagbucks can be redeemed basically same as cash through Paypal, or through a variety of store gift cards.  Once you receive your box, you can decide if you love it or not and wish to continue.  If for some reason you don’t, you can cancel with no obligation, and you will not be charged for more.  I recommend setting an alarm on your phone or electronic device so you can decide within the time period.  However, I think you will love it as much as I do!   With the Swagbucks, your box will only be $16.50 if you do the month to month plan!  Even less if purchasing several months!

GlossyBox subscriptions make awesome gifts for both men and women.  The men’s boxes are fabulous too.  They are perfect gifts for bridal showers, weddings, graduations, birthdays, or any time you are looking for a great gift at a great price.

Don’t wait though, the boxes sell out every month, and the only way to guarantee you will receive a box is to subscribe!

This is a deal brought to you by Julep and Swagbucks. If you are not familiar with them, Julep is a subscription beauty box service which delivers luxury beauty products to your door.  Their nail polish is now known as one of the best lines available, and stores like Nordstroms now carry their products.

If you aren’t familiar with Swagbucks, in my opinion it is the most important site in my savings and earnings arsenal!  They have all of the available manufacturer’s coupons to print, but also pay you for every one you redeem.  They have a cashback program for shopping, and offer all kinds of other ways to both save and MAKE money, all totally free!!  Their “Offers” section consistently has some down right amazing deals.  I have used them for years now and I have not had any issues with them, nor any missing cashback claims.  I did this deal already or would be grabbing it again in a heartbeat if I could!!  Make sure you take advantage of their other beauty FREEBIES!  Get a $20 rebate when you spend $20 at The Body Shop, and get $10.10 when you spend $20 at Zulily (yes they carry beauty as well!”

How to get your $68 of FREE luxury beauty products, plus get paid $8.00:

  • Sign up for your free Swagbucks account by clicking here.
  • Once signed up, click the “Swagbucks” logo at the top left corner of the page.  Go to the “Sort By” box on the right, and choose “Most Popular.” Scroll down the page of featured offers and click on the “Julep” offer.  This will bring you to the Julep site.  It looks like this:



  • Once Swagbucks has connected you to the Julep site, sign up for their “Julep Welcome Box.”  This part is VERY important.  DO NOT use the promo code listed on the Julep page.  If you do, you will not get paid, and your box will not be free.  Instead, type code “SWAGBUCKSFREE” into the promo code box.
  • This will subtract the $24.99, and make the box free.  You will have to enter your credit card information, which will only charge you for a box the following month IF you wish to keep a monthly subscription.  However, if you don’t just love it, as long as you cancel before the month period ends, which falls on the 24th, you will not pay anything.  I recommend setting an alarm on your phone or electronic device as a reminder.  It is easy to cancel by calling their customer service number.

Swagbucks will confirm your 800 Swagbucks reward in just a few days, which is the equivalent to $8.   You can cash out Swagbucks through Paypal like cash, or for all kinds of store gift cards.  To cash out via Paypal, you need to have a $25 (2500 Swagbucks) minimum, but there are gift cards available for as low as $5.00 (500 Swagbucks.)  If you are like I am and prefer Paypal, it adds up fast, and you can reach the $25 minimum quickly.

You will love the products you receive, and even if you decide not to continue, you get a great box of FREE makeup and beauty products!
