Unboxing October Glossybox

Monday, 27 October 2014
Oh Glossybox, you are absolutely killing it with box designs over the last two months; last month was the sketch of London by Karen Millen, and this months is Pop Art! One of my favourite types of art! I think there were four different colour schemes that you could get, I luckily got the one I thought was the best! I have no idea how I intend on displaying the box yet but it will be done.


On opening it I seemed to have not received the little menu showing me what was in the box, but it doesn't really matter too much. Like last month there is a sneak peak of next months box but I can't say it looks as interesting as the last two have.
NUXE Masque Creme Fraiche de Beaute
Something that I think every box received was this NUXE Masque Creme Fraiche de Beaute, a re hydrating face mask, which for someone who suffers from dry skin is hopefully going to be a lifesaver! This seems to be full size at 50ml so I should get loads of uses out of it. It smells kind of strange but a good strange and has quite a thick texture, almost conditioner or hair mask type thick.
Yves Rocher Quelques Notes d'Amour
Next is the cutest perfume sample in the world; it's actually a mini bottle instead of a spray vial! The little bottle contains 5ml of Yves Rocher Quelques Notes d'Amour. The perfume is quite grown up and not something that I would usually wear, (I'm more of Nicki Minaj Pink Friday kind of girl.)
Etre Belle Liplift Peel
Onto my favourite items ever received in a Glossybox is this Etre Belle Liplift Peel, it sounds quite strange but it is amazing! This 15ml tube, I imagine, will become a repurchased product after it's performance so far. Its texture is rather strange, when applied at first to the lips you can't feel the exfoliating bits but once you rub your lips together you can feel it removing the dead skin, and best of all? It smells and tastes like Refreshers! Bonus!
Rimmel BB Cream Light
Next is something I knew would be disappointed with as soon as I opened the box. A Rimmel BB Cream sample in the shade light... If you want to see why I knew I'd be disappointed you can see my BB Cream post here.
Ciate Talent Scout
I was really excited for this, I haven't actually tried a Ciate nail polish yet, bad beauty blogger I know! Until this box arrived I had never truly appreciated the design, from its curved bottle to the little bow on the front. The colour I received was Talent Scout a medium dark purple which I can guarantee will be stolen by my mum very soon!
So Susan Flutter Mascara
Last thing I received was the So Susan Flutter Mascara, I only have one other So Susan product which coincidentally I was sent in a previous Glossybox. So far I can't say that this does amazing things to my lashes, the brush isn't anything out of the ordinary but I plan to use this and see how it compares to my other mascaras.


Overall I can't say all the products were mind blowing, however the box design certainly is! The total of my box this month is over £50, if my calculations are correct, which for a £10 excluding p&p box isn't a bad return really!

    1. I'm trying to work out how I could display the box, it's too pretty to just put away somewhere!

  2. I really want to try the lip treatment. I had a Lush scrub once but it dries out, this sounds better. Do you know how much the product is?

    1. I looked and I found it at around £10 :) I love Lush lip scrubs but the pot isn't as easy to carry around as this tube.

  3. My lips get super dry in the winter, so I will definitely be trying this! I do love my lush scrub but it is so messy and you can't really take it anywhere with you!!

    I can't decide whether to subscribe to glossybox, some months it's awesome,but sometimes they are so disappointing! Tempting though!
