Glossybox September 2015

Glossybox gives you 5 deluxe samples of beauty products a month for $21.00 plus $5.00 shipping to Canada but do get cheaper with longer terms.  The buzz on the interweb feels that Glossybox has one of the best packaging of any of the boxes.  Every month they curate a selection of high-end, niche, and trendy beauty products in deluxe travel sizes that they send out and I’ve been happy with their offerings so far.  They have been shipping to Canada for a little while now and most of the time you get the specialty boxes.

They have a really nice info card.  It is triple folded and not only tells you what you got but also a tip on using it and full size pricing.

My first look in my box.  I really dislike the squiggles but they do keep my stuff safe during it’s long trip.

12 Benefits Love At First Lather Foaming Hair Shampoo-50mL $9.00

Surprisingly this is a full size bottle.  I’m guessing that since it comes out foamy you use less and so a smaller bottle lasts for you, even though you are to use 10-12 pumps. I have never used a pre-foamed shampoo before but it is supposed to provide natural sunscreen, repair the texture of your hair, and protect the cuticle.  It has sunflower extract and coconut oil in it giving it all the good benefits.

Stiks Cosmetics Lipstik in Red-$15.00

This is the oddest looking lipstick I have ever seen.  They say it’s designed to be applied with one hand in under five seconds.  I don’t know about that but it is a really nice pure red colour.  I don’t wear much red lipstick since it seems a bit out of place at work but it’s always good to have one.

Biossanse The Revitalizer-4mL $1.71

This facial moisturizer is made with squalane, which they tell me is a naturally occurring emollient.  It has a little dropper applicator and should get rid of your dry skin.  I think this would be good for a night time moisturizer since it is kind of oily and left my skin very shiny until it absorbed after a bit.  It has no scent whatsoever.

Emite Make Up Artist Colour Powder Blush-$22.00

This blush is huge!!!  No seriously, it has a diameter of 3″.  I thought it was going to be super dark and not great on my skin but it actually works.  It is definitely for shading and definition but fades out to blend in perfectly.

Nails Inc Uptown Nail Polish-$9.83

This is not full sized, which seems odd.  Anyways this polish has plumping agents in it that help it last.  They call it a dusty rose colour that I thought I wouldn’t like looking at the bottle but on my nails it looks nice.  I would never ever have picked this bottle up in a store so this is one of those items where the box did it’s job.

This months box has a value of $57.54 which is double what I pay for it.  There are three full sized items, one 2/3rds sized item and one sample sized that will last a long time.  I like all of the items but know that the lipstick won’t get worn all that often.   This box is slightly more expensive then the other beauty ones I get but it really is worth it for the stuff you get.  I am rarely sad after checking it out and you always get full sized products mixed in.
