I know I know, two Glossybox review posts in a row, but after last month, where I was sort of underwhelmed, I could not wait to get this month’s box. I DID see a little spoiler about the box on Glossybox’s website, and couldn’t have been more excited to see this month’s box was a French theme.
I had a class in Paris for two weeks my sophomore year of college and fell in love with the people, the food, the fashion, and the beauty. Everyone in Paris seemed so effortlessly beautiful, and that is something I want to embody, too. So, without further ado, the contents of the box that I think is the best one yet. November and December had better step up their game because October is going to be hard to beat.
The box itself is gorgeous, and I think it will be the first box from Glossybox I actually keep.
This is the bottom of the box, and when I flipped it over to see this I was so impressed at the attention to detail this box’s design holds! I cannot say enough good things about it. But on to the products!
The internal packaging is just as gorgeous as the box itself!
Phyto Phytokeratine Repairing Thermal Protectant Spray ($6) – Seriously it was like Glossybox read my mind, I was just about to order a thermal spray for my hair when this came in. I am actually familiar with this brand, and really love it, so getting a product from them was a big deal. This is not a full sized product, but I prefer travel size for products like this because I don’t use heat on my hair very often, and when I do it’s usually because I am away. The scent is clean and fresh, and I think it’ll do wonders for my hair.
Nuxe Gentle Exfoliating Gel with Rose Petals ($26.00) – Again, Glossybox read my mind! I’ve been on the market for a good exfoliator for a while now, and this one seems to fit the bill. With a really gentle and calming rose scent (similar to Fresh’s rose facial mask) I know my skin won’t react negatively. I love that the exfoliator is ground walnut shells because I’ve tried walnut scrubs before and loved them, but they were a little too abrasive; with this scrub, the rose and lychee hydrate while the walnut shell exfoliates, a perfect trio!
De Bruyere Paris Red Lipgloss ($17.50) – This gloss is CRAZY pigmented. As in, one swipe and I was good to go. However, this is definitely not my favorite product because of one unfortunate aspect: the scent. It smells like cherry cough syrup and it makes me want to cry. It fades a little once you put it on, but it’s very scented straight off of the wand. If you can handle that, this lipgloss is gorgeous. If you’re like me, maybe steer clear of ordering it.
Lollipops Make Up Paris Nail Lacquer in “Voyage a Paris” ($10.00) – Remember how Glossybox is reading my mind? Well here it goes again. For my sorority’s Halloween dance, Jack and I are going as Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh. For my part of the costume I really wanted a red nail polish, but didn’t have any on hand…until I got the most perfect box in the world. I have yet to try it out, but I have a feeling I’m going to like it a lot.
La Societe Parisienne De Savons Guest Soap ($6) – The packaging of this soap is so gorgeous, and the scent made me want to snuggle into an armchair with a cup of tea. Clean but warm, this is the perfect soap for a guest bathroom or a bathroom on the ground floor of your home. While I don’t have a bathroom to use this in, I have someone in mind that would love this soap as much as I do.
Total value: $65.90 – While I know some people wish the boxes were of higher value, I honestly think that the products we get from these boxes are incredible and that even if the dollar amount isn’t above $100, we get the best of the best regardless.
Did you get this month’s Glossybox? Are you as excited about it as I am? What is your favorite product?
