May 2012 Glossybox

I know it’s the middle of June, and I’m JUST getting around to posting my June Glossybox…but whatever! To be fair, it didn’t show up until the 1st of June anyway.

This was my last month of the Glossybox – the fact that it never showed up on time really bothered me. Here’s what I got:

May 2012 Glossybox

I was happy to see two products from Simple – there has been a huge hype around this line and I was glad I got a chance to check it out.

There was nothing super exciting about this box…Everything was just meh. My mom uses the Sebastian shampoo so I gave her the bottle. The Boxx product was a lipstick brush (who actually uses these? I’m far too lazy to bust out a brush to put on my lipstick).

The Simple products were nothing special either – I use the eye makeup remover on a daily basis to clean up the mess I make while putting on Mascara. I love Kiehl’s too much to switch to the face wash, but this one did the trick. The good thing about the products is that they don’t contain any crazy chemicals. My face hates everything that isn’t natural (and therefore expensive), so the face wash is great as something to throw in my travel bag.

I haven’t used the foot cream, so I can’t report on that. I will try it out, chances are it won’t replace my favourite Avon one!


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:

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!
