June 2012 Glossybox Canada
This post is
très late... my June Glossybox arrived on July 5th. I was away on
vacation so I did not actually get it until this past Monday. I also received
my July Topbox that day as well.
I had peaked online before I left for vacation to see what was in it. I really could have used this box on my trip but oh well there is more summer to make use of it!
So let’s get to it and see what’s inside this month’s Glossybox.ca J
|June 2012 Glossybox Canada|
Gillette Venus Embrace Razor - full sizeFull size: $13.49
YAY another razor! I really like the Venus razors. The one we got in the May Luxe box was awesome! My legs truly felt silky smooth afterwards. Now that I have two, I am going wait for sales to stock up on cartridges!
Biore 4 in1 Revitalizing Cleanser - full sizeFull size: 200ml/$9.99
I had never used a Biore face wash before. So I was happy this was in the box. I have been using this cleanser for the past few days. I like the pump and I like that it is a foaming cleanser. I find these ‘clean’ you face better in the summer. For winter, I tend to use a cream cleanser. I found this Biore cleanser can be a tad bit drying but your face feels so clean! So far no breakouts!
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Tough Sunscreen SPF55 - deluxe sampleFull size: 88ml/$15.99
This was one item I could have seriously used when I was on vacation! I needed the SPF55! This is perfect for facial use. It doesn’t feel as thick as most sunscreens. I usually just depend on my moisturizer/foundation to ‘protect’ my face but I really need to invest in sunscreen for use exclusively on my face. I know I know very bad! I definitely will be getting a larger size of this product.
Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips – 1 full size stripFull size: 8/ $9.99
I used these strips ages ago. It was fun to see what it pulled up. Sometimes it worked (and hurt), other times not so much. Back then I was on a serious budget and had to give these up LOL
Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex – deluxe sampleFull size: 50ml/$30.99
I have received a few of these samples in various boxes. I have been using it at night. It does well as a moisturizer but I need more time to see how effective it really is. I am hoping it will resist the ‘11s’ that are developing on my forehead. L aging sucks
Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz – full sizeFull size: 150ml/$16.99
I am so eager to try this. I have naturally wavy hair so this will be awesome for the second day hair...I hope haha. It has been so hot here lately that I have been wearing my hair up. Maybe this weekend when I go out for dinner...?
CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Duo in Whisper – full size
I had previously purchased one of these flipstick in Snap. I hated it. Haha.
The one I got in my Glossybox was Whisper. It is a nice pinky mauve on one end and a paler pink on the other. There is a smell to these lipsticks that I do not like. But I like this colour so I will try it out sometime this week.
There were some grumblings amongst bloggers that the contents were not ‘luxury’ items but I look at this way; it opens my eyes to affordable brands as well – people get stuck in ruts and stick with the same old - same old. I went down the path of buying and using expensive skin care/cosmetic brands and found that drug store brands are just as effective. Besides, I think the majority of us cannot afford $80 face creams. $15/20 creams - yes.
