My GlossyBox: October 2011 Edition...


Yep so Blogtober was a bit of a fail, but with a split from my long term boyfriend, moving house and the start of my final year of Uni I just haven't had the time to fit it in :( Hopefully this will all change as I'm finally getting on top of things! Yay

Any way so you may have been spying the GlossyBox spoilers floating around and so you all must know that it's GlossyBox time again. 



The theme of this month's box is '6 Pack', a celebration of 6 months and 6 GlossyBoxes with a bonus 6th product and gift! I received in mine:

  • Dermalogica Age Smart MultiVitamin Thermofoliant
  • Dermalogica Age Smart MulitVitamin Power Recover Masque
  • Dermalogica Age Smart Renewal Lip Complex 
  • Dermalogica Cosmetics Bag
  • Leighton Denny Expert Nails in Hanky-Panky
  • Stila Smudge Stick in Moray
  • Robert Piguet Eau De Parfums in Visa, Calypso and Fracas

Obviously, the biggest part of this box was the Dermalogica products. I have been wanting to try out Dermalogica's Acne range for a while, so Age Smart isn't really appropriate for my 20 year old skin. However, the benefits of these sound intriguing and will definitely get use in my skincare routine, especially the heating exfoliator. These are all sample sizes, but the full sized products range in price from £40.50 (75ml), £33.00 (70ml) and £22.50 (1.75ml).



This isn't my usual go-to eyeliner colour, but swatched its absolutely gorgeous! It a sort of khaki green with gold shimmers. Anything with gold tones tends to look nice with blue eyes, so this is a winner with me. I can vouch for its waterproofness too, it took some scrubbing to take this off in the shower! The formula is super smooth, and I can definitely see this living up to the US Beauty Guru hype. This is a full-sized product. Stila is now stocked in Boots and retails for £13.00.


I do love a good nail polish and with Halloween just around the corner how perfect is this colour choice?! It's a lovely metallic orange with silver running through it. I've never used Leighton Denny polishes before, so i'm looking forward to painting my nails later. This is a full-sized polish and retails for £11.00.


The final product I received this month are these fragrances. I must admit, the fragrances aren't my favourite part of the boxes. The scents always seem to be a little 'old' for me. I love sweet, floral fragrances and the samples I received prior have always been musky, sort of 'evening' scents. I haven't had much of a smell of these yet, but when I opened my box, I got a whiff of incense which I assumed to be these. 

Overall, I think this box is lovely! I also love the new way they've done the info cards consisting of QR codes so I can literally scan and buy if I wanted... Great addition there GlossyTeam!

Each box I fall in love with GlossyBox even more and I'm definitely staying tuned for the next few. I've had 5 of the 6 boxes and they've got better and better.

Much Love,
Lauran
