• October Glossybox

    I was rather surprised that my Glossybox arrived when it did, considering the truck driver strikes.  A big thumbs up to glossybox for ensuring the boxes reach their subscribers so quickly.
    The contents of the October box:

    1. Calvin Klein Euphoria perfume (RSP: R825 for 50ml)
      I love perfumes and have received this in another beauty box before, but I won't complain because I really do like this perfume a lot so it's nice to have another one.
    2. Calvin Klein Encounter perfume (RSP: R620 for 50ml)
      This is for the man in your life or to give to a lucky friend.  I do actually like it that glossybox does consider that you might like to share your beauty box with someone in your life.
    3. Clipinhair Coloured hair extension piece (RSP: not specified)
      Ok....now I need to be honest.  I didn't really like this at all.  I have light brown hair so there is no way that this colour would blend in naturally with my hair and honestly I can't see myself ever wanting to add it to my hair.  For those that like experimenting with their hair and adding pops of colour this is perfect, but for me it's not something I would find useful.  That being said - I will at least try to experiment a bit more with it.
    4. L'Oreal Tecni Art 5 (RSP:R250 for 150ml)
      This product is perfect for people like me who have fine hair that falls flat.  2 madarin sized balls of mousse are worked into your wet hair and then blow dried to build up volume.
    5. Everything hair scalp massager
      I love these.  I actually own one already and use it to brush conditioner through my hair.  I'll be keeping this scalp massager in my room for when I blow dry my hair because these are incredibly brushes.
    6. An added bonus in the box were various earrings from 4Flavour.  I am actually wearing the little roses today.  I don't particularly like all the pairs of earrings but what's nice is I have been able to share them with my Mom.  These earrings retail for R79 so that is a nice extra to have in the box this month.
    7. Lastly there was a 15% discount voucher to www.everythinghair.co.za.  I didn't actually know about this site but had a great time browsing through everything.  They are running some amazing promotions at the moment, one where you even get a free YSL perfume!
    My overall thoughts on the box are a little bit torn.  I really like the perfume, scalp massager and some of the earrings but hair care is not really what excites me.  When Glossybox has skin care products I always gobble up the boxes with delight, this box didn't take my breath away but it has made me try out new things. I then think back to all the boxes in the past - like the amazing Stuttafords and Sisley boxes and all the Loccitane products we've received, I continue to believe in Glossybox.

    1. Love the earrings and the brush!! I prefer this type of content, with some make-up please:) This box would have been a great treat for me. My skin started to suffer because I was trying too many products. Also not sure about the extension ;)

      1. That is very true - it's good to give your skin a break :)

      1. I do like the studs a lot. Wore a different pair today so it's fun to play around with them.

    4. I liked my box - it was nice to get some Jewellery from 4 Flavour again - I wear the gold cuff from last months box all the time and get great comments on it and I am sure my earrings will be as much fun to wear, I would have liked some more products, possibly some Kiehls samples as they have just opened in South Africa and I know Rubybox was giving those away this month, but the Mousse is a good sized product and the pink hair extension might be fun to try this summer as a single stripe if I remember to put it in.

      1. I am looking forward to my Kiehl's box arriving soon hopefully! Lush also just opened so it would've been nice to have some of those goodies as well. I think I would've preferred a pink extension to the odd red one I got.

      1. I saw it on the banner on the home page - you have to buy 3 of these products: http://www.everythinghair.co.za/catalogsearch/result/?q=CAPTIVE

    6. I agree with you that this box does not look nice. I wanted to roll over my Glambox money to Glossybox, but have not done so, yet. I am really, really glad I did not get this box. Tools does not make me happy. Rubybox have lately also been giving nail files and brushes. Not nice. And I am fussy with jewelry. I would rather use makeup that is not just me than jewelry that is not me.

      1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I am glad I am not the only one that feels this way.

    7. I am seriously considering signing up for these boxes! They look like they have such great goodies. Except for that red clip in.

      (PS: I'm having a giveaway, perhaps you would like to enter)
