June 2012 Glossybox Canada

by - July 12, 2012

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

The rundown:

Gillette Venus Embrace Razor - full size 
Full 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 size 
Full 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 sample 
Full 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 strip 
Full 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 sample
Full 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 size
Full 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
Full size: 3.8g/$12.50
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.

If you want you can sign up for Glossybox for $15 a month (taxes/shipping included) and receive 5 deluxe beauty samples each month! You can use my invite linky J but no pressure! Use promo code GLOSSY27 at check out to save 10% ($1.50).

  1. I've already used up the Neutrogena sunscreen and have bought the full size. I just love how it's non-greasy. I was among the grumblers, but I never really stay upset long ;-) I love getting beauty boxes and samples both drugstore and luxe!

    1. I love the Neutrogena too! I am getting a full sized this week. Hope you had a great birthday Jayne!

  2. I loved my first Glossybox and posted about it on my blog, feel free to come visit (there are other newer posts lol) I also bought the full size of the sunscreen after trying a sample and since I already had the full size, I passed this onto my mom with hopes that she'd like it and go for this product. :)

    You got a good shade of the lipstick!

    1. Thanks the lipstick shade was nice...too bad I can't get past the smell :( It seems to be the consensus that the Neutrogena sunscreen is fantastic. I grabbed the full sized week or so ago :)

  4. During that time, Nike was recruiting me because I spoke Mandarin, because I was married at the time, and my wife is from Taiwan. They
    were always trying to get people to go overseas, to work with the factories, and knowing that
    I already spoke one of the languages would make it a bit easier.
