If your new to my blog and are wondering what GlossyBox is let me tell you.
– Glossybox is based out of so many countries so you will have to google to find out if you are able to get it. (Austria, United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Netherlands, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Poland, Italy, Brazil, Spain, China, Japan, Taiwan)
-This is the Canadian box and it only ships within Canada.
– Its now $21 a month and its a recurring charge.
– You can expect to receive 5 deluxe beauty samples a month.
– Each month you will be asked to provide feedback on the products you receive and in turn earn glossy dots which can then be redemed for a free box. Please note that I think the glossy dots expire. When I looked into my account I see that I don’t have has much as before so you have to keep checking.
So lets get into the October box shall we.
I was pleasantly surprised to get this on Halloween Day so this was my little treat.
I was a little anxious to see what Glossybox was going to send because in September we got emails saying that the box would be increased to $21 but thankfully since I am a subscriber I was able to get this box for $15 but starting in November it will be $21. I currently have enough points to redeem for a free box which I will be doing for December (my birth month) and after that I honestly don’t know what I will be doing. It will all depend on what the next two boxes are like.
One of the things I love is that they haven’t changed the packaging. These boxes are fantastic and you can reuse them over and over again. I am hoping to eventaully make a little dresser out of them to hold make etc in.
Inside the black envelope was the product card, along with a booklet on Jouviance (I have never heard of this until this box, I will be reading up on them), Caroline Neron flyer with a 10% off her jewelry collection, and a coupon for a free 198g Satin Care sahve gel when you buy any Venus cartridge (value of $3.99)
The first items I spotted right away were the Sebastian Shampoo and conditioner. If you have seen previous posts you know that we always get either Sebastian or Wella products and honestly I don’t really mind them since they are perfect for traveling with.
This month they sent Sebastian Professional Trilliance Shampoo and conditioner. I love that is perfect for all hair types. I like the smell of both of these items and I can’t wait to try them out soon.
The sample size is (shampoo) 50ml for $3.16
The full size is 250ml for $15.79
The sample size is (conditioner) 50ml for $3.32
The full size is 250ml for $16.59
Jouviance Rejuvenating anti aging Cream Normal to dry skin treatment. This is perfect for my skin type and I will give it a try to see if I like it. Although I won’t buy it because its expensive.
The sample is 5ml for $9.35
The full size is 50ml for $93.50
This has been one of many razors I have gotten in the beauty boxes lately but honestly I’m not really complaining because you can always use a razor. So having some lying around is great as back ups because I always forget to buy them when I am out.
This is a full size product and they say its $16.99 but I am sure I saw it some where recently for much cheaper.
I was so thrilled to see a nail polish in the box this morth and this is one of four that have been picked out for this month to represent the diverse women who have breast cancer all over the world. So far in posts I have only seen this one and a litter pink.
I got mine in the shade of Rory. I have to say that it looks much darker in the bottle then when I applied it.
I really like it. Its a perfect summer shade and I can see me using this alot in the spring/summer months.
This is a full size product 15ml for $8.00
Another new to me item is this Modelco flipstick lip duo. The other side holds a mirror.
The shade is in Dusk and in the pictures it looks brownish but I have to say that I really like the color on my. Its got a fruity smell to it but when you apply it there is nothing. This is a swatch on the top of my hand.
This is a swatch on my inside arm.
The other side had lip gloss called Striprease and this too and a fruity smell. It felt sticky on my lips. It goes on clear.
The bottom swatch is the gloss and the top is the lipstick and the gloss. It looks very nice alone and with the gloss.
The only thing that I really don’t like is the packaging as its bulky to hold and I really don’t think they realized that when they put the mirror on how useless it would be because you can’t use it for that purpose.
This is another full size its a special item for Glossybox members $38.75
Its nice that no one else but us glossyboxers have this item and sadly this won’t be something I would purchase because I think this is a little expensive for this.
My over all thoughts is that its a pretty decent box. I am liking what I got and excited to try these items out.
The total value of the box is $83.56 (this includes the coupon) and I used the prices they provided. So the box did pay for itself and there is items I am excited to try and use.
I am curious to see what November will bring.
Did you get Glossybox this month? What did you think of it? Was it worth the money this month? What are you excited to use from it?
