Glossybox October 2012

glossybox october 2012 5 glossybox october 2012 4 glossybox october 2012 3 glossybox october 2012 2 glossybox october 2012 1 The theme for Octobers Glossybox* is DIY beauty to create a home spa. Now looking at the selection of products I got, I don't get the theme. To me these are what you'd use on an everyday basis. If I was going to create my own DIY spa box I'd include something like a bath oil, maybe a relaxing scented candle, face mask or bubble bath. Glossyboxes have been quite good up until this one, I'm quite disappointed with it.

Dermalogica Clean Start Day/night 3 Step Mini Kit - This mini kit contains a face wash, toner and moisturiser. All three products are great sizes to try out but this kit really isn't suited to my dry, sensitive skin type.

Anatomicals Body Scrub - I always like trying out new body scrubs to will be trying this out tonight. Again it's another great size and smells like pink grapefruit which I love.

Skinetica Anti-blemish - Again this is another one that just isn't suited to my skin type. Just from reading the ingredients I can see how my skin will react.

Yves Rocher Lipstick In Mauve - This looks a lovely colour especially for Autumn and Winter. It feels really creamy and nicely pigmented. Finally a lipstick from a beauty box I actually like. I always seem to get horrible colours but this one is a great change.

What did you get in your box?

  1. Glossy box's are always so controversial. I've stopped mine but sometimes I see a really good box and want it. I'm not so keen on this one tho x

    1. I know! It doesn't help that they send out different boxes. If I got the version with the Sally Hansen nail polish I would have been happier with it :) xx

  2. Glossybox really need to start taking people's beauty profiles into consideration - why send so many anti-blemish products to those with dry skin?! I don't subscribe because of all the mixed reviews that I always seem to read x

    1. I know! Or at least send products that aren't skin type specific :) xx

  4. I cancelled my GB subscription last month & I am quite glad I did. This months box looks a little disappointing. I will just buy the samples I like the look of from Ebay Save myself some money.

    1. I think I'm going to carry on with it, they'll always be some boxes that are rubbish but hopefully the better ones will even it out :) xx

  5. You should try 'shesaidbeauty' boxes, they give a better variety and are a pound cheaper! latestinbeauty.com also have great samples to buy.

    1. I was thinking of trying shesaidbeauty but I'm going to stick with Joliebox (which I pay for) and glossybox (which I am sent) for now. I feel like SSB and glossybox are quite similar in the products they include :) xx
