November GlossyBox (AUSTRALIA VERSION)

Hello! This post would be about the new revamped GlossyBox, formerly known as BeautyBox. I’ve been on subscription with BeautyBox now turn GlossyBox from the beginning so I kinda have a rough idea of what I like and what I don’t like about the products that were sent.

This box was pretty exciting for me because this is the first box that came in after the whole brand had major shift. So I thought I would do a review on it.

This is the actual box that contains all the goodies. The box is relatively larger than the original BeautyBox. But I quite like the new packaging because it looks really classy and there is more depth to the box so you can keep more things. Double yayee! I keep my backups in these boxes if you’re really interested to know.

So, when you open up the box, you see it tied nicely in a box with tissue papers and the GlossyBox sticker. Again, really classy.

You also get a card that thank you for subscribing to the GlossyBox and a brief description of the products that are inside.

And the moment you guys have been waiting for.

BIO-OIL

I was actually pretty excited when I see that I got a “full-size” of Bio-oil. By full size I mean, 60 ml which retails at $14.95 which is how much the GlossyBox cost. Plus, my friends has been telling me how it really does work on lightening scars, stretchmarks, uneven skin tone etc. I have quite a significant amount of scars due to bug bites and mainly just me being very careless and falling down everywhere I go, so this is a good product to just try it out.

JURLIQUE ULTRA FIRM AND LIFT CREAM

This came at a right time. If it was me 1 year ago, I would not have cared for anti-ageing serum and what not. Being 21 now, I start see that my skin isn’t as firm as before. Especially the skin just below my cheeks and beside my mouth. So, I’ve have been in a lookout for a lifting cream that might be able to combat my “21 year old ageing skin” . Anti-ageing doesn’t start when you’re old. In fact its too late to start at that time.

ESSIE NAIL POLISH IN SUPER BOSSA NOVA

This. I like! I am big fan of summery colours. Heck! I even wear summery pastel nail polishes in winter. Thus, this is a really good addition to my very modest nail polish collection. But truth to be told, I would pretty much enjoy it in a different colour. I see other people getting beautiful shade of orange and I’m actually pretty envious. BUT BUT BUT, this is better than nothing.

BOBBI BROWN CLEANSING OIL

I have mixed feelings for this product. It is good to have a Bobbi Brown product included in the box. However, I would rather they come out with eyeshadows or blushers or just anything from their make up line, instead of another cleansing oil(The first BeautyBox came with a cleaning oil from Shu Uemura). Then again, its mini, so you can take it when you travel.

MIRENESSE 3D FOREVER GLOSS

I like it. Its full size, its a beautiful shade. I don’t know much about the brand, so this is a really good way to get to a know a new brand out there. Its a really nice texture, not sticky AT ALL. This is coming from someone who doesn’t like gloss. I am more of a lipstick person than a gloss one.

Along with the products, they also included a Jurlique 15% off storewide voucher and a free Gel Liner from Mirenesse if you go to their Facebook account(exclusive for people who ordered the November GlossyBox). A downside of the Jurlique voucher is that the voucher expired even before I got the box. I’ve checked with the people from GlossyBox and they are trying to see what they can do about it, so we’ll see.

Overall, I am quite happy with this box. It is their first box, so I’m sure they are trying to make it impressive so that it would attract more crowd. Keeping that in mind, I will continue my subscription with them as for now.

Can’t wait for the Christmas Box to come.

Love,

Vinci
