GLOSSYBOX September 2012 Review and Giveaway
I have done several Glossybox (US version) reviews now, and I am excited to show you the contents of the September 2012 box. I also have a giveaway for another September box which I will tell you about more at the end of the post.
For those of you that don't know Glossybox is a monthly subscription service that delivers 4-6 products (full size and/or samples) to your door every month. It costs $21 a month but the more you buy at once the less you pay per month.
The theme of this box is Fall Forward. This month is basically a nice prepper for the upcoming season. It throws in some new products and formulas as well as mixing in some beauty trends.
The box is packaged so beautifully as always. I like to say that it is like opening a monthly present to yourself.
When you flip the card you will see a listing of all the products included and how much they cost in full size.
The products seemed to be mostly full sized products this month. One of the products I recognized immediately because I already own it (and have already reviewed it here) and the others seemed very interesting.
The Kryolan for Glossybox lipstick was the first thing I reached for. It is a creamy, long lasting lipstick enriched with Vitamin E. It helps stimulate and hydrate your lips. It is a beautiful, muted, glossy pink and it is very comfortable on the lips.
I applied it immediately and fell in love. It is a perfect nude-ish-pink and I can see myself wearing this endlessly. This is a full size and valued at $14.
The next product I reached for is the OC 8 Professional Mattifying Gel. The full size is included in this box so it has a value of $30.00. I have never heard of this brand so I am interested in trying this out to see how it wears. I do have oily skin so I will be able to put this baby to the test.
You may recognize the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream as being one that I have hauled/reviewed previously. I am excited to receive it in a shade that I did not previously own. The review for this product is here. I do look forward to trying the lighter shade when my tan wears away and getting that up for you.
The last two products are the GKHAIR Balancing Shampoo and Conditioner. Each bottle retails for $20 in full size and this is about 1/3-1/2 of the full size. I can't locate a size on the bottle. This says it is a
"Hair Taming Stystem" so I am looking forward to testing it out.
Now for the giveaway! This giveaway will be open to US residents only. You must be 18 years or older or have your parents permission to give out your address. The prize will be shipped directly from the company but I will relay the information to them. Now just follow the prompts in the widget below and good luck! :)
