Glossybox October 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.

The box this month is so fancy!!  I love it!  Inside was just as beautiful and I love that they changed it to match.

I don’t see anywhere that it tells me exactly what the box theme is but I’m going to take a wild guess and say everything as a French twist to it.  The info card is the standard trifold that you get each month.  It tells you what you received, the full size retail, and a little tip or tidbit about the product.

Phyto Phytokeratine Repairing Thermal Protectant Spray-30mL $6.40

This is a heat protection spray that also detangles and helps to prevent breakage and future damage.  I don’t do all that much heat styling but since I’ll be switching to an office job part time in the new year that may change.  It smells really nice and I may put it to use as a leave in conditioner.

De Bruyere Paris Lipgloss in Red-$17.50

This is a true red lip gloss.  It is not even remotely sticky and feels super nice on my lips.  The tip that they included with this is to wear a black eyeliner cat eye to be showstopping.

Nuxe Gentle Exfoliating Gel With Rose Petals-75mL $26.00

This uses ground walnut shells as the exfoliation method and even though it’s safe for sensitive skin it leaves a tingle.  The rose is not overpowering so that is nice.  The recommendation is to use this twice a week to get soft glowing skin.

Lollipops Make Up Paris Nail Lacquer in Voyage A Paris-$10.00

Well now my tips can match my lips.  I have a few red polishes but this one will make it into rotation, especially as Christmas is coming and a good red is the perfect base for some themed stickers.

La Societe Parisienne De Savons Guest Soap in Carmin-$6.00

This is one of those soaps you put on a counter to seem posh and hope no one ever uses it.  Or it ends up in a drawer as a way to make your delicates smell good.  This is a very spicy scent and I like it but I don’t know that I would use it as an everyday kind of wash.  I love wrapped soaps though so this makes me giddy.

This months box has a value of $65.90, which is great.  There are four full sized items, and one larger sample.  I like the strong theme this month and the products are all good too.   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.
