glossybox november 2011

Nail Rock wraps, Arbonne FC5 foot creme, Dead Sea Spa Magik facial wash,
Illamasqua Freak perfume, Philip Kingsley Elasticizer hair treatment

This month's GlossyBox arrived late last week, a little earlier than normal as I am now an ambassador for them! This means I get my boxes for free from now on but obviously this won't sway my opinions as honesty is key! I paid for the boxes I got before this apart from the September one which I was sent after attending the event.

So what do I think of this month's box of goodies? To be honest I'm not that over excited about it. Personally I feel like one month's box will be amazing and the next one not so much, but then it redeems itself again. So far I have only used the face cleanser and it made my face feel really rubbery and almost too squeaky clean which was disappointing. Looking forward to trying the hair elasticizer which I have looked at before but not splurged on.

The perfume is okay, realised it was a unisex scent which explains why I thought it smelled like something my dad has! Nail wraps are something I still haven't got around to trying and I don't really like this pattern so I will probably save them for a giveaway or put them in a Christmas card or something. The foot cream is a generic minty type deal but I don't actually have one so that's useful! Also thought I would mention the new men's box they are bringing out, it comes out every 3 months instead of monthly like for us females and I'm tempted to get it for my boyfriend/dad!

Overall I'm not raving about this month's box, but I guess I do like that they are being realistic and actually using sample sizes. When they include huge products I think it gives people high expectations even though it's obviously a nice surprise! I am looking forward to next month's box though, I'm sure it's going to be a good one considering it's a Christmas box! Have you signed up to GlossyBox yet?

  2. not too impressed with this one really, wasn't impressed with the last couple either so I'm thinking of unsubscribing. I suppose its because they promised 'high end minis' and they keep sending out unknown brands that i've never seen or heard of! x

  5. I am SO glad I cancelled my subscription last minute, I already own the Dead Sea Spa mask and nail wraps, which are kind of boring now they've been around ages.
    Im so sick of getting perfume samples in Glossybox's, it acts as a 'filler'.
    Lovely photos though emma!

  6. I'm rather jealous of your box. I got tiny little samples of cream and bath salts... I have no idea what to do with bath salts.. (Apart from the obvious 'bath' but still).

  7. I get the American counterpart, BirchBox. This month's box (for me at least) consisted of a postcard with vanilla parfum, a bracelet, two drink coasters, LaRocca shimmer creme, Borghese mud masks and Zoya nail polish. Not a lot of people were pleased, but I thought it was great. Except for the fact, that I think I'm allergic to the Borghese.

  13. I really wanted to subscribe to Glossybox but the past few boxes haven't been that great. I prefer the Feel Unique boxes as they contain products more suited to me and the brands I would use.

  14. I am not overly impressed with this months box but in no way am I disappointed, every box can't have amazing products in! I do expect a great Christmas box though. X

  17. The Illamasqua perfume sample- is NOT unisex! IDIOT!

  18. Anonymous, I think you need to research before leaving a comment. Now YOU just look like the IDIOT!

    Freak is a unisex concoction of exotic unconventional flowers, which Illamasqua has unashamedly blended together to celebrate the night. The rich and daringly provocative opening notes of Black Davana cast a magical spell of desire, while a compelling burnt orange bloom base is highly prized the world over for its ability to enhance the wearer's natural perfume. The subtle muskiness of Poison Hemlock haunts the background tone of Freak, adding alluring depths of mystery. Datura, the Moonflower, has an intoxicating scent that has long been used as a heady aphrodisiac. The exquisitely rare Queen of the Night blooms fleetingly for a single night each year and completes this daringly provocative concoction with its warm, soft floral scent touched with sweetness. Freak is encased in a beautifully ornate art deco-inspired bottle, tilted to one side, as though confirming to the dictates of an alternative reality. Its smoked glass dances in the light and features a delicate silver snail and its trail, symbolizing an addictive passionate path of desire that is both distinctive and unusually provocative.
