April 2012 Glossybox

It’s subscription box time!!!

If you read last month’s post, you will know that I was very unimpressed with the box. First of all, it was super late and there just wasn’t anything inside of it that excited me.

This month, I arrived home from work and my Glossybox was waiting for me at the door. I picked it up and noticed how heavy it was – which was my first indication that it was going to be awesome!

I opened it up and I was amazed at what I found inside:

Glossybox April 2012

Here’s what I received this month:

  • Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer – Full size!
  • Elizabeth Grant Skin Care Shower Gell – Full size!
  • Wella Brilliance Conditioner
  • Wella Brilliance Treatment
  • Marcelle Xtension Plus Mascara
  • PLUS a sample of the Marcelle BB Cream!

The first two products alone made the worth of my box over $40! I haven’t used any of the products yet, but Wella is my current hair care brand so I’m excited to try out this line. It’s made for fine, coloured hair – so hopefully it will give me a little boost.

I’m also very excited to try the sample of the Marcelle BB Cream. I keep passing this over every time I go into Shopper’s Drug Mart and since I already have the Garnier BB Cream I haven’t picked it up.

I was just about ready to cancel my Glossybox, but I think I’ll keep it going, at least for another month!

March 2012 Glossybox

Well, I finally received my March Glossybox! It was waiting at my doorstep Friday when I got home from work, and I raced inside to open it.

I have to say…I’m a tad bit underwhelmed.

I figured since the box was about 2 weeks later than it should have been, it would be extra awesome. Nope. It was barely even awesome.

I’ll admit that I haven’t given all of the products a try yet, so I’m not here to tell you that they all sucked. I just feel like these boxes should contain things that I can’t buy at Shopper’s Drug Mart.

The one thing I am very excited to try is the Evian Facial Spray. I’ve read a lot about this product and I haven’t been able to find it in any stores near me. The Pandora’s blush looks good too (I did a little swatch and it’s got a nice colour and pigment to it)!

I’m severely disappointed mostly with the Aveeno cream and the Sebastian hairspray. Both for different reasons. The Aveeno I’m disappointed in because it is not a “premium” brand, and Aveeno products tend to break me out. I know a ton of people love Aveeno and their products, and I wish I could too because it’s so affordable. The Sebastian hairspray only disappoints me because I already use it, so it’s nothing new to me.

I’m going to try Glossybox for another month and see what else comes my way! I’ll do a little review of the products this week as well!
