So, I subscribed to glossybox recently and got their 6 month anniversary October edition, which came with 6 products instead of the usual 5, and also a free make-up case.
Firstly, glossybox is a monthly subscription service that you can cancel at any point, and for £10 a month (plus £2.95 p+p) you get 5 deluxe samples, ranging from skin care to make-up. Some of the brands working with glossybox are ciate, dermalogica, llamasqua, OPI, and stila to name but a few. It's the UK's answer to the USA's birchbox.
The october glossybox was rather impressive, which is mainly the reason why I signed up to begin with. It included a lot of good quality products, and a stila smudge stick which I had been wanting to try for a long time.
It comes in protective cardboard packaging, and then there is this rigid cardboard baby pink box inside with the glossybox black crown symbol.
The box is re-usable and I am definitely going to keep them to give presents in and for storage.
Inside the box, it's wrapped in tissue paper and has a pink ribbon tied along with a sticker to keep it secure. This months glossybox had a great selection of products. It comes with a large card too, with an introduction to the box, the products in the box this month, the full size prices, and a code to scan on your phone to get straight to the website.
This months package had a good mix of skincare and make-up, as well as nail polish and fragrance. It was actually a really great mixture.
There were 3 all from the age smart line, the multivitamin power recovery mask, multivitamin thermafoliant and the renewal lip complex. It came with a handy travel case, which is a good material and feels sturdy. It's also a wipe-down material which is great. In the photo I have the products next to an iPod touch so you can see the size. The 2 face products are 15ml, and i'd say are good for 2+ uses, and surprisingly although the lip product is only 1ml, it has lasted me for 4 uses already, and a little goes a long way. I haven't tried the face products, but i'm really excited too as dermalogica are a great brand.
