This theme for October’s box is Breast Cancer Awareness. As almost everyone is aware of now, Glossybox Canada raised their monthly subscription in October from $15 a month to $21.
As I mentioned above, Breast Cancer Awareness is the theme and there were a few ‘pink’ items in the box. I love pink. J
Also to note; Glossybox Canada has 50 boxes out there that have the Golden Ticket item in them; jewellery from Bijoux Caroline Neron. Unfortunately, I DID NOT HAVE A GOLDEN TICKET ITEM IN MY BOX!!! L AGH the tragedy of it all!!!!
Okay now that I have stopped pouting, let's see what my box did have..
|October 2012 Glossybox Canada|
Jouviance Rejuvenating Anti-Aging Cream
Normal to Dry skin Treatment deluxe sample
Full size: 50ml/$93.50 ßGulp Holy poo O-O
Extremely luxurious face cream, gently formulated to hydrate and increase the firmness of your skin.
This better be like the holy grail of moisturizers. The full size is pricey!!! My first impressions is that it seems a little thick for something that would be used as an all over face moisturizer and eye contour but where I tested it out on my hand is very smooth.…
|ModelCo Flipstick Lip Duo|
Modelo Flipstick Lip Duo full size
Full size: Special edition for Glossybox members $38.75
Shine Ultra Lip gloss can be worn alone or layered over Lipstick couture for hours of unbeatable shine in a shade perfect for October pink.
I do have to say I do really like this lipstick shade – a mauvy neutral pink. The lipgloss is a very nice sheer pink with some hint of shimmer but the part that made me smile was the smell. It smelled like fruity watermelon. I am impressed with this duo. I think it is a pretty universal shade. This dual ended lipstick/gloss is a little big to fit in your pocket but in your purse – no problem. I didn’t wear it today because my lips are DRIED right out right now. I fell asleep with my ceiling fan on and dried out my face and throat last night UGHHH.
Another thing I noticed, it that it comes with little mirror on the back of the tube. I thought that is great! Until I realized you can't use it watch yourself put the to put the lipstick/gloss on as it is attached to the tube. LOL Oh well I guess I can always see what a mess I made?
|Zoya - Loretta|
Zoya – Loretta full size
Full size: 15ml/$8.00
This is a delicate pink jelly. It will be great for French manicures. Even though I didn't like Zoya - Shelby (a pink creme) that I got in previous beauty box. I think I will like this jelly better. Plus it never hurts getting a full sized nail polish.
|Sebastian Professional Trilliance|
Sebastian Professional Trillance Shampoo and Conditioner deluxe samples
Full size: Shampoo 250ml/$15.79 Conditioner 250ml/$16.39
Cleanse and polishes the hair surface to enable greater light reflection, creating gorgeous natural shine.
Okay I like Sebastian products. I will definitely use these! Doesn’t it seem like we get a Sebastian product every few months? How about a coupon next time too LOL
Gillette Venus and Olay Razor full size
Full size: $16.99
I got this in a previous Luxe Box. Love it. Definitely going to use it. It’s unbelievably moisturizing.
There were also some coupons; one for a free Satin Care shave get with a purchase of any Venus Cartridge and 10% off promo code for Caroline Neron.
So that was the October Glossybox for Canada. Was it worth $21?
I do love my Glossybox and I am happy with it. I think I got $21 worth but I wasn’t over the moon about it. I mean I already have a Venus Olay razor and Zoya Loretta is probably not a shade I would have purchased for myself. But I will use them and i already know I like one of them J but I will reserve my judgement until I play with the lip duo. Okay I am going to go sniff my lip gloss now…..hehe
What do think of this month's Glossybox?
Oh PS: if you are interested in subscribing, I do have a promocode to get 10% off your initial order - GLOSSY27.
