July 2012 Glossybox Canada

by - August 01, 2012

Got my Glossybox on the last day of month – just under the wire! I am just going to accept the fact that these boxes come at the end of the month. It is not worth fretting over. As long as I get it, I am happy because I love my Gossybox.

The theme this month seems to be hydration….hydrating your hair, your lips, your feet, your body.  God knows I need it. My skin is always so dry dry dry.

Introducing the July 2012 Glossybox Canada….

July 2012 Glossybox Canada

Zoya - Shelby

Zoya Nail Lacquer in Shelby        full size
Full size/$8.00
This is my first Zoya polish. I am not really sure why I haven’t tried Zoya yet other than I haven’t seen it around here in the stores or salons. The Zoya polishes that came this month were from the Beach and Surf collection. Nice J  I would have preferred a different colour, like Zuza or Arizona. I found Shelby, a bubble gum (pepto bismal) colour, hella streaky to work with. Two coats still major streaks, three still a bit streaky L

Dove Softening Creme Bodywash       full size
Full size: 200ml/$5.99)
A full sized body wash. YAY I can use this! It’s a cream body wash so hopefully it will be hydrating. I find it smells like most Dove products – reminds me of laundry soap or something.

Burt's Bees swatch

Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Plum      full size
Full size/$5.99
I really like the Burt’s Bees Tinted balm products. I have several kicking around in my purse, car and desk. The
Lip Shimmer has a minty smell and has some tingle to it. I assume that is from the peppermint oil in it. My lips feel very moisturized and I like the colour I received. Plus it isn't crazy shimmer - more like a semi-sheer tint.

John Freida Frizz-Ease Sheer Solution    deluxe sample
Full size: 60ml/$14.99
I have used Frizz-Ease Serum before and liked it. I usually wait for the John Frieda products to go on sale before buying them because I am cheap like that LOL but I do find it is worth the money. I have naturally wavy/curly hair so I need some a lot of help in the frizz department.

Alessandro International Pedix Feet   deluxe sample    
Full size: 100ml/$19.95
This stuff is pretty darn good. I tried it as soon as I opened the box. You can certainly smell the tree tee oil in it. It absorbed into my skin quickly and my feet look hydrated. Even the nasty big toe L TMI? HAHA Unless something happens to my feet in the meantime…like turning blurple and falling off….I will definitely think about purchasing a full sized version of this product!

Bounus item is the BeautySoClean Sanitizer Wipes   4 wipes (48/$12.50)
Love these things. I have been thinking about getting the spray but I will use these for now.

The Canadian Glossybox is $15 month. You can sign up at glossybox.ca or you can use my referral link here. Thank you J Also remember to use Glossy27 for your first order to receive 10% off!

  1. Do you have v3 printed on your shipping label?


    1. Hi Mae
      I have V2 on my shipping info and product info card. I always thought that meant what 'version' I was getting. Does it mean something else? I am in Winnipeg.

  2. I think the pink looks cute on you! I have to go and pick mine up at the post office, but I think I have the same version as you.

  3. Actually Shelby had grown on me. I painted my nails at my desk so I was trying to rush before anyone saw HAHA. I think this will be a great base for some of my glitters. The foot cream is awesome.

  4. I think you nailed it on the theme. My version had cream for dry skin instead of the lip balm so it supports your idea!

    1. We all need help with hydration :) So you got the V3 version...

  6. I got an orange shade, MYRTA

    Great review!

    1. Thank you :) I actually would have like Myrta! On my way over to yur blog :)

  7. I got the ZUZA colour and love it! I also like your colour too! Super cute for summer as there's only a month left! :( Instead of burts bees I got the Frizz Ease thing in Full size. I'm jealous that you got both! :O

    1. You;re so lucky Leenie! Zuza wuld have been AWESOME! The Frizz Ease I got was only 10ml, very tiny.
