Glossybox November 2011

Monday, 28 November 2011

Well its finally here! I finally got my GB today. It felt like Christmas :) Was the wait worth it?..... you decide!
My daughter couldn't wait to see whats in the box

For those that don't know, Glossybox is a service that you pay $14.95 per month and get sent 5-6 deluxe samples of skincare, hair care and make up.
The good thing about this box is that it has something for everyone. Make up, skincare, nails, body and even something to eat while you play with your new products.

In no particular order

Mirenesse 3D Forever Lip Gloss in Blow (full size)
When I first saw it, I have to admit i was a bit disappointed. It's VERY dark in the packaging. It looks like a browny red. Luckily when I put it on my hand it became a beautiful plumy mulberry colour. It's very moisturising and goes on a bit sheer. All of their lip glosses I've tried previously has been quite bright or sparkly. I like that this isn't. It has just enough colour but it's perfect for an understated look.

Bio Oil (60ml)
Nearly everyone has used bio oil before. As a teen I loved it. I haven't used it lately, but am planning on using this one either in my bath, or in a foot bath to relieve dry feet and make them soft again after being neglected in winter.

Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil (15ml)
This is a great size for travelling (and you can easily refill it too!). I had already recieved one of these in the primped Look Book goodie bag. Its ok, but some people (including me) have found that it can make them break out, so i only use it if I have on heavier make up.

Essie Nail Polish in "Super Bossa Nova"
This is a beautiful hot pink from their collection that is inspired by the beauty of brazil. It is very bright and summery. Perfect for a BBQ or for the beach. Ive never used Essie polishes before so I was excited to get this. It goes on really easily and it dried very quickly. I'll have to get some more colours from them :)

Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Ultra Firm and Lift Cream (5ml)
I LOVE Jurlique products. Even though I'm a bit too young to need age defying products, I might use this as a night cream. This is good to use if you want firmer skin, with less wrinkles and lines. Now one thing i was a bit annoyed with was that the box came with a Jurlique card that offers you 15% off storewide. The catch is it can only be used at Jurlique stores, and is valid until 30th November, 2011. Today is the 28th November. I know that the boxes were delayed, so this is why there is barely any time to redeem it. Which is a shame, as I would have used it! :(

And lastly, pink jelly beans :)

What did you think of the box? If you didn't get one, are you tempted to sign up for the December box?


  1. Your daughter is so cute!

    I was very happy with the contents of the box, no complaints here:) xx

  2. Thanks Ingrid :) I think she's adorable too!

    I like the nail polish you got a bit more. I already have too many pinks lol

  3. The Essie polish looks interesting, I've seen them at Myer and always walked away from the counter, but maybe now I'll have to try them! That colour looks great.

    So excited that I signed up for the December box...hoping it's awesome and just in time for Christmas!

  4. I got mine today and LOVE it!! I got a red lipgloss, I'm hanging out to try it tomorrow :)

  5. Beautyblot - Im sure the Xmas one will be incredible :) Hopefully you will do a wrap up on your blog and we can see how different the boxes are.

    Oh Nadia, I love red lipgloss/lipstick but never use it :( I feel so silly going to Coles in red lipstick. But I might make a New Years resolution to actually wear my lips red :)

  6. I wish I'd got these products in my GB!! And thank you for the comment on my blog, I'm now following you!

  7. Glad to know there are other uses for bio oil! I just had pretty major surgery and have some mega large scars and was told to use bio-oil. I may have to try it for other uses too!
