October Glossybox



Today I picked up this thing of beauty (it arrived at my office yesterday, two days after despatch but I’m on leave) and I LOVE IT! The Pop Art themed box is gorgeous and will make a great addition to my collection (I use them to store my make-up) however, sadly, the contents aren’t great for me. So, what did I get?


Everyone got a NUXE 24 Hour Soothing and Rehydrating Fresh Mask. I’m not sure about this product-it feels very heavy on my face, but I’ll give it a go.


The next product is another that it seems everyone got-a Ciate nail polish in Snow Virgin 010. I’m not a fan of white polishes and this has taken five coats to get a decent coverage-I suspect I will be swapping this on a beauty group I’m a member of.


Product three is another product I won’t use-a So Susan mascara. This will definitely be going up for swaps.


The fourth product is a sample of Rimmel’s BB Cream, in Light. As an 8ml sample it’s not a bad sample size and I will give this a try, as I’ve yet to use a BB Cream.


My fifth product is a 5ml sample of Yves Rocher Quelques Notes d’Amour perfume. I’ve heard good things about this but after smelling it in the bottle I’m on the fence-again, I’ll give it a try.


My last product is the only one I’m intrigued by this time. It’s a Liplift Peel by etrebelle and is meant to basically exfoliate your lips. As someone who gets terrible chapped lips in the winter I’m hoping this, alongside a good lip balm, will sort me out.


There you go, there’s my October Glossybox. I’ll be honest, I’m a bit annoyed with Glossybox at the moment and would have cancelled if this hadn’t been a free box. I don’t like that they’ve changed their Glossydots system so each survey is 20 points not the 50 it was-so I’ve gone from 1 in 5 boxes being free to 1 in 11. I don’t think this is very fair. I also don’t like that they’ve removed the product card from the box and put it online instead-meaning I knew what was in my box before I got it!! I’m still on the fence but chances are I’ll be cancelling my subscription-watch this space!

What was in your October Glossybox and what did you think?
