October Glossy Box

Today I received my first ever Glossybox!

I am super excited to be showing you this months Glossybox because, I think it's fantastic. It costs £12.95 and you pay per month via a subscription service. You can choose to cancel your subscription at any time and then resubscribe when you would like another box.

This months box is entitled the DIY box. 
It comes in a beautiful light dusky pink box (which I will be reusing in my new bedroom

When the lid is removed from the box, you are greeted with this beautifully presented package. Black tissue paper with a matching dusky pink bow and a Glossybox sticker. 

The sticker on this box is special due to October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

Once you have delved into the box, carefully peeling back the sticker and untying the bow with expert precision, you are greeted by your products perched on top of corrugated cardboard filling. (the black colour looks really classic against the black paper, making the products stand out

In this particular box, I received 4 products. The first thing that caught my eye was a Dermalogica: Clean Start - Day/Night 3 Step Mini Kit. RRP:  £12

This kit includes a 50ml Foaming Face Wash which smells incredible, however I cannot figure out what it smells like! (if anyone received this kit in their box, please let me know what you think it smells like in the comments!!) The bottle is a nice clean and simple design and the perfect size for travelling. The lid flips up revealing an easy pour nozzle which is super tiny so your less likely to waste product. 

The next product is a 50ml Purifying Toner which smells really bad. To me it smells like some sort of medicine or something, just really strong and really bad. I will be trying it out but I am not looking forward to putting this on my face. The packaging is the same design as the face wash, however the toner is in a spray format which seems to be pretty popular in the blogging world at the moment. 

The final product in this mini kit is the 15ml Welcome Matte spf Moisturiser. It is packaged in a squeezy tube which allows for easy distribution and it means that the product isn't going to be left in the bottle. The smell is pretty much identical to that of the face wash which I am super pleased about. I can't wait to try this out. 


The next product I received in my box is the Yves Rocher: Moisturising Cream Lipstick from the Couleurs Nature range in the shade Rose Cannelle which is a deep red colour. RRP: £14.50
I ended up giving this to my mum as I own a lot of red lipsticks and I don't really use them very often and she  uses deep red lipsticks more than me so this was perfect for her. 
The packaging on the lipstick I found to be really beautiful and simplistic due to the simple no fuss lid. 


The third product I received was the 75mls Anatomicals: don't just clean it woman, scrub it - body scrub. RRP: £3.49 for 200mls.
The packaging for this product is simply amazing. I love the contrast of the bubble gum pink against the buttercup yellow lid. 
The smell of the product is beautiful. It is a fruity clean scent of pink grapefruit which will make bath time much more fun. 
I also find the text on the product very amusing and similar to that of Soap and Glory humour. 


The fourth and final product is a sample of Skinetica: Anti Blemish. RRP: £6.99 for 100mls
This smells, again like a horrible medicine, but I will use it as I am hoping it will clear up my skins new habit of popping up spots everywhere. 
The packaging is really simplistic and looks expensive. When you open the lid, there is no stopping the product from easily spilling everywhere due to the lack of easy pour nozzles or stoppers. I am guessing I will waste a lot of products due to spillages
It claims to "soothe, calm and clear" acne affected skin. 


That was October's Glossybox.

I was very impressed with my Glossybox this month and will be definitely repurchasing after seeing the quality of products and strong relevance in this months box. 

Have you got anything different in your box?
