November 2016 Glossybox (US) First Look

By 5:15 PM

Hi friends!  Glossybox came before Boxycharm this month!  I know, *gasp.*  I'm not sure if I've even put up a Glossybox yet. ūüė≤  Glossybox is a $21.00 a month subscription box.  This is my referral link, you don't have to use it.  They have a "Glossydots" point system.  You do surveys on your box for 20 points each and referring a friend is 1000 points.  You can get a free box for 1k points.

Glossybox comes in a pretty pink box that is fairly sturdy and good to reuse.

It is usually well packaged and comes with a card that not only lists the items you receive, but gives their full size prices and a good description of each item.

First in the box was the Psssst! Instant Dry Shampoo.  The full size is 5.3 oz and is $6.99.  There are three scents and I got the original scent.  It smells like a typical cheap dry shampoo, so not awesome, but not quite bug spray.  I have dark hair and it didn't leave a white cast, but I also took the time to work it in.  It did refresh my 2nd day old hair quite well.

Next was the Borghese Fango Body Refining Polish, the full size is 8 oz for $49.00.  This is a sugar based scrub with Jojoba butter in it.  It has a green, earthy scent that reminds me of a spa.  It is supposed to be slightly moisturizing.  I like to use a scrub on my legs before shaving, so I am definitely looking forward to trying this.

So, a while back Boxycharm sent us the full size of this.  It's the Palmetto Derma Rejuventating Antioxidant Mask.  The full size is 1.75 oz and is a whopping $64.00.  Some people had some issues with feeling like this burned their skin, so I would definitely do a spot test if you haven't had this before.  I like it.  I usually use this in my T Zone or on blemishes and it seems to pull up whatever gunk lurks below.  This is vegan and cruelty free and made in the US.

Up next was a sample of the Lycopene Crema Rinnovante which is formulated in Italy.  A 30 ml full size is usally $85.25 but right now is on sale for $44.25.  It is supposed to nourish and hydrate your skin with lycopene and astaxanthin.  It also has 19 other botanicals including: sweet almond oil, witch hazel, rosemary, burdock root etc.  It is supposed to offer protection against UVA rays, which at my altitude, I definitely appreciate.  It is paraben free and not tested on animals.

De Bruyère
The last item was from De Bruy√®re Beaut√©, it's a jumbo eyeshadow pencil that is made in Spain.  It is a full size 1.7 grams and is $17.00.  It has a very emollient feel to it.  So, while it might feel good when you put this on, I have to wonder if it creases or would slide off oily skin.  I would definitely use a primer with this and maybe another color powder over it.  It might work out really well for people with dry eye lids though.

Overall, I was happy with this box.  It didn't knock my socks off, but I still like what I received and am looking forward to trying the products.

* I bought my own box with my own dried up bank account.
