Glossybox – October 2012





This post is about the Glossybox that I recieved for October. This was based on pampering yourself in a ‘home spa’ experience. This box is in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month so is really for a great cause which I am happy to support. This was supposed to be my free box with the glossy points I had accumulated over time but somehow I forgot to redeem them so I will next time… These are the items which came in my box: 

1-      ANATOMICALS Don’t just clean it woman, scrub it body scrub  This pink grapefruit body scrub has a great basic pink and yellow packaging which I like. After using it once, it buffs the skins and leaves your body with a wonderful, divine smell. I will continue enjoying this product. The message behind it is pin pointing a stereotypical role of a woman being a domestic help and scrubbing her body like she would a kitchen floor. It is funny but when it said “you’ve missed a bit’ on the tube I was like… what?! haha

2-  DERMALOGICA 3 step day and night kit – This has been my worst selection of this box and just because I was already given one in a previous box. I think Glossybox should keep a record of what people have been given already and because of this I got 4 items instead of 5 which sucks a little. I will undoubtedly give this to my brother as he wanted to try some skin care or if he changes his mind my sister will have it haha Putting that aside, when I have used it previously, it has been great on the skin  with the different steps involved. The pack contains *Wash off foam, *All over clear toner and *spf15 moisturizer. The foam wash is the best out of the pack!

3-     SKINETICA Anti-Blemish This size is so cute and easy to carry around. Also I am up for any anti-blemish products that smooth, calms and clears acne, spots, pimples and blemishes. I am really happy to try this out especially as it is kind to skin because I would say mine is quite sensitive. I hate the fact that when I first took of the lid I spilt quite a bit. Silly me for opening it up upside down but really… it should have a seal on it like other products.

4-    YVES ROCHER FRANCE Moisturising Cream Lipstick This lipstick is my favourite of the box. Admittedly  I always avoid red lipsticks in shops but I was quite happy to see this product. Maybe because it is an Yves Rocher product and I absolutely love their things. It claims to give a perfect coverage from first application and it really does. I tried it on lightly at first, but the power of pigmentation, didn’t allow room for a subtle look.  It feels so smooth and moisturizing on the lips and stays on the lips for a very long time. May I add, the packaging it faultless too. I can’t say I have been converted to red lips, but it has defiantly made me see red in a different light.

What I think I loved all three products except for the Dermalogica product so overall pleased. I don’t really think these products are worthy to be called ‘pampering products’ but hey hoo. If I get another product that I previously got, I think I might unsubscribe. I really would hate to, but like many other people, I look forward to new treats every month. The lipstick is sat on my dressing table ready for me to bold and daring 🙂
