Yesterday I received my third Glossy box, the October one. I am not going to talk too much about the whole concept of beauty boxes and I haven’t even included photos of all the packaging as I have written a few posts about it all. Just click here and here for all the information you need.
The October box is the 6th box from GlossyBox which is suppose to make this box extra special and they say that they have included the beauty bag as a special celebratory gift.
What you get this month…
Dermalogica Age Smart Multivitamin Thermafoliant
Dermalogica Age Smart Multivitamin Power Recover Masque
Leighton Denny Expert Nails
Stila Smudge Stick waterproof eyeliner in Moray
Robert Piguet Eau de Perfums
Dermalogica Age Smart With beauty bag
What I think
I really want to love this beauty box but no matter how hard I try I can’t. There are three Dermalogica Products all aimed at older skin which I won’t be using and although the products are quite expensive in the full size these sample sizes are wasted on me. I was very excited to see the Leighton Denny Nail polish and it is the one product that I would possibly buy but never in the colour I got (Babydoll). As I have previously said perfume samples to me don’t add much value to this box, do people really use them? Personally I don’t and they end up just adding more clutter to my room. To end in a positive note I do quite like the Stile Smudge Stick and although it didn’t originally excited me it is a lovely colour and one I can see myself getting a bit of wear out of, plus Stilla still isn’t very easy to get hold of in the UK so it is a nice touch.
I am so disappointed to having to be giving a slightly negative review but I just don’t think that the GlossyBox is for me. Makeup is my thing and they don’t offer enough makeup to make me subscribe if however you are just looking to try new beauty products from hair care, skin care, nail polishes to make up then it is worth consideration.
