Happy Birthday Glossybox Canada!
I am really happy with Glossybox Canada’s anniversary box. It came in a black box with a hot pink ribbon and bow imprinted on it. Very pretty. The packaging inside matched as well with a hot pink ribbon and packing straw.

Makeup YEP, Hair product YEP, Skin care YEP. Glossybox hit all my happy requirements this month! I have lots of goodies to show you so I am not going to jibber jabber too much, so let’s get right to it!

Givenchy Gloss Interdit No 3 – Coral Frenzy deluxe sampleFull size: 6ml/$30
I was so happy to get this. I guess I had enough glossydots to get one, phew. It is a lovely coral color with gold shimmer running through it. The Givenchy Gloss doesn’t feel sticky and it seemed to last quite awhile. It did have a slight perfume-y smell to it but it doesn't linger around when you apply it. I kind am in lust with it right now.YAY!

Essence Quattro Eyeshadow in Vamp It Up full sizeFull size: 5g/$3.99
Yes it might be inexpensive but I am finding that some of Essence’s products are pretty good. I have one other Essence single eyeshadow in Pearl that I use on my eyes and ckeeks as a highlighter. The particular quad I got is Vamp It Up. I like the color combos in it. I am not a fan of yellow eyeshadow but it’s good to know I have one now HAHA but the rest of the colors I will definitely try out! Purple –good, navy blue – good, grey – good. J
Full size: 6 strips/$9.99
Wow a full size sampling! I will use these for sure. I have used them in the past. It is always fun to look at what is left behind when you pull off the strip.
I found out at work today (where I opened my box) that some of the gents have used these too. LOL They liking looking at the junk left behind too. HAHA
Glossybox sent out a teaser last month that this was one of the items that would be included in the anniversary box. I love using oils in my hair, especially in the winter, before getting in the pool, before going to the beach...okay all the time O_o. This has a blend of Macadamia Nut Oil and argan seed oil that will add moisture and nutrients to your hair for shine and increase manageability. The Macadamia Natural Healing Oil Treatment can be purchased in varying sizes from .34oz, 1oz (what we received) up to 4.2oz. It smells pretty nice. I can’t wait to try it.
Your Nose Smells Rose Body Cleanser full size
Full size: 150ml/$3.99
Can I just say I love the name? Plus the pink and yellow packaging is quite cute. It definitely smells like roses. I am not a big fan of rose scented products but because I like the name so much I am going to give it a whirl. This was also in the UK Glossybox for February.
The Bonus items:
|Glossybox Canada Feb 2013 Bonus items|
Full size: 50ml/$18.50
Crabtree and Evelyn Tarocco Orange Eucalyptus & Sage Ultra Moisturizing Hand Therapy Sachet sampleFull size: 50ml/$8.00
What a mouthful! There are three distinct scents in the title so now I am curious as to what this smells like. Glossybox has indicated on the card that this will be a full sized product in an upcoming box.
Glossybox Cupcake KitThis is really cute. It is just a special addition to help us celebrate Glossybox Canada’s birthday. I like cupcakes and I like baking so I know I will be using these up. The guys at work are now expecting Glossybox cupcakes this week. HAHA Thanks Glossybox!
For February, there was another Golden Ticket item for 50 lucky Glossybox subscribers: a pair of frilly panties from Globlove. But alas, no Golden Ticket item in my box so that means no new gitch for me! HEHE but we did receive a coupon code for 25% our next purchase from Globlove.
I think this was an awesome anniversary box. It was definitely an improvement over last months box. I also like getting little spoilers from Glossybox.
