August 2012 Glossybox Canada

by - September 06, 2012

It is September and I am posting about my August Glossybox. I received it the same day as my Fall Luxe Box. So a busy week for beauty samples!

I liked what I got in my August box. The lipstick is very pretty.

So let’s see what’s inside this month’s Glossybox J

August 2012 Glossybox Canada

The rundown:

Sebastian Potion 9 Lite  - deluxe sample 
Full size: 150ml/$20.95
I have received several Sebastian samples in my past Glossyboxes and I like them. This product is to be applied to damp hair for conditioning and manageability. I am assuming this is spray-in conditioner.  I think I still have my product booklet somewhere. I am going to see if this is in there. Definitely will be trying out!

Sebastian Professional

Befine Fine Food Skin Care – 5 packettes
Full size: 50-150ml/$24-30
The Befine box contained the Exfoliating Cleanser, the Gentle Cleanser, the Night Cream, the Pore Refining Scrub Treatment and the Warming Clay Mask.  These look so interesting. The Night Cream has cocoa in it MMMMM. Food on my face? Sure! We also received a card for 20% off our introductory order from

Kryolan for Glossybox in Glossy Pink - full size 
Special Edition
I have seen this exclusive lipstick in Glossyboxes from other countries. I am happy to get it. It is a pretty nude pink. Since this is a Kryolan lipstick, it is very pigmented! I also found it long lasting leaving a teeny stain on the lips. Thank you Glossybox!
Layla Mascara – gold glitter - full size 
Full size: 8ml/ $15.99
This is a HUGE tube of glitter mascara! LOL I don’t know how I will ever be able to finish it. I am going to have to find different uses for this product. It is a pretty product but I am not really sure how much I would use glitter mascara as I am kind of past my club hopping days LOL.

Biore Makeup Removing Towelette- 10 towelettes 
Full size: 10/$3.99  30/$9.99
Makeup removing towelettes are the first step in removing my makeup. Currently I am using the Neutrogena towelettes. I can’t wait to try these Biore towelettes.

Elastoplast SOS Blister – one unit
Full size: 5 units/$5.99
Every girl needs these. I don’t know how many times I have dealt with unpleasant blisters trying to break in new shoes. I have tried regular bandaids/plasters to protect my heels. I even have used Vaseline to alleviate blisters.  I am going to stick this in my wallet.. you never know when you are going to need it!

TrendTrunk Mystery Gift Card ($5-$250)
A social marketplace that allows you to buy, sell and donate new and pre-used fashion. This site seems pretty new. I was like meh. My card was worth $5.

(L-R)  TrendTrunk, Biore, Elastoplast 

Bonus item: This month, Glossybox Canada is celebrating their 6 month anniversary. So as a bonus, they included an item from the first box; Ahava Mineral Body Lotion. It is very moisturizing but the scent is too strong for me.


I am pretty happy with this month’s box, love the lipstick J.

  1. For the first time in the 5 months subscription to Glossy Box, I'm happy with this month's box. I got similar items as your box. I got 2 lipsticks(instead of the mascara). I already tried the facial exfoliate. It smells delicious and it is good so far.

    1. I think I would have prefered the lipstick over the mascara glitter LOL. That tube is huge. Did you get multiple uses from the exfoliant? It seems like such a big packet for one use.

  2. OMG, that glitter mascara is crazy! I guess it's time to be 20 again and live it up on the dance floor! I dunno, can you use it in your hair? Hair mascara??

  3. Maybe I can use the glitter mascara ala Ke$ha? Show up at the next get together with glitter lightning bolts on my temples and steaks in my hair?? LOL

  4. Mine was the same except the Mascara is silver! and no bonus item :((( aweee This is my box
