Glossy Box February Edition

Happy Birthday Glossybox.

Glossybox is celebrating their very first Canadian birthday. Its hard to believe that I have been with Glossybox for an entire year. This is the only subscription that I have remained true to.

This month they changed the box in honor of their birthday and it came in a black box with a beautiful hot pink box on the lid. Doesn’t that look pretty?

 Inside the box you see they used black tisseue paper with the hot pink ribbon which I think is very nice. They even redid the sticker to match the box.

I was so thrilled to open this box even though I saw some spoilers. Please note that this is an unboxing post and I purchased this box, This month I ended up redeeming my glossy dots for the box.

 As you can see the lid of the box matches the sticker and hot pink crinkle paper inside to hold it all in place. There is a few goodies that I am super excited to try out.

This month there was another golden ticket opportunity and you had the chance to win a sassy pair of ruffle undies from Globlove sadly I didn’t win but I got a coupon for 25% off my order. I won’t be using the coupon because they don’t have anything in my size so if anyone is interested in it pleae let me know and I will tell you what the code is.

Lets get into the box shall we:

 

 I am super excited to try these it because two of the items are new to me and the other one is a brand I know and enjoy using.

~Anatomicals You Need a Blooming Shower! Your Nose Smells Rose Body Cleanser. This smells so good. Its rose and jasmine scented. I can’t wait to use this in the shower and honestly with it snowing once again I am longing for the spring scents so this will be great. Its a full size item. Its 150ml and its $3 (I really need to find out where to buy this since its so cheap)

~Macadamia Natural Oil, Healing Oil Treatment. I am excited to try this in my hair. This is another item that smells really good.  This is another full size item and its 30ml for $13.50

~Biore New Acne Cleansing Scrub. This is a new item from Biore and I am excited to try it out. This came at a good time because I have a slight break out starting and it will be great to see how it will work. This is another full size item and its 130g for $9.99

The following two pictures were bonus items.

 I have been hearing great things about Eucerin so being able to sample this is great. I got two samples of the Hyal-urea anti-wrinkle day/night cream sachet duo. This is great for dry  and very dry tight facial skin. This is a new product and its fragrance free which I love. The samples 1.5ml each (x2) and the full size is 50ml for $18.50

~Crabtree & Evelyn Tarocco Orange Eucalyptus & Sage ultra moisturizing hand therapy sachet. I haven’t tried alot oof Crabtree & Evelyn products because there isn’t one close to me so being able to sample this is great. Apparently from reading the card we will eventually get a full size of this in an upcoming box. Oh I hope I really like this. The sample is 5g and the full size will be 25g for $8.00

 This is an exclusive item to Glossybox its the cupcake kit. Which I think the liners are just too cute and I am almost tempted to make cupcakes or perhaps muffins with them.

Finally the last two items of the box. The first item is Givenchy Gloss Interfit No. 3 Coral Frenzy. I must have been lucky enough and had enough glossy dots to qualify for this and I am thrilled. I know I missed out on some glossy dots along the way but thrilled to have gotten this. The full size is  6ml for $30 and the sample is 3.5ml so half the size of the full size. Its got a nice smell and I actually like the look of this on me.

I was thrilled to have gotten this Essence  Quattro eyeshadow. This is full size (5g) and its $3.99. Its in the shade 02 chic-ify. I have been wanting to try Essence since I first spotted them a month ago in Shoppers Drug Mart in Ontario. This is affordable make up that seems to be only available in drug stores.

The Quattro’s shades are light pink, taupe, dark grey and silver. It will be fun to mix and match and play with the combinations that are available. The eye shadows are roughly the size of a quarter.

I am really happy with the box and what I got. I can’t wait to try everything out.

What do you think of the box? Did you get the same things?

  1. Wow, that’s a nice haul there in that box! I quit all of my box subscriptions because I was tired of all the little samples of things I wouldn’t normally buy. I did keep my Julep box because I can never too many nail polishes and they always add in such nice surprises. My daughter lovers The Ipsy bag which is mostly makeup and seems aimed at young teens.
