• The Stuttafords Edition Glossybox: June

    I am so happy that I can finally reveal the first amazing Stuttafords Edition Glossybox to all of you - hopefully a lot of you have received your box or will receive it soon.  So after much anticipation, here is the Stuttafords Edition Glossybox that I received!
    The box contents:

    1. Dolce & Gabbana The One Sport Eau de Toilette (RSP: R885 for 100ml)  This is an aromatic water scent that I think most men will like and women will definitely love the scent on the man in their life.  I think it was a clever addition to the box because it allows us women to share our boxes with someone special.  (Glossybox offer: R752.25 for 100ml)
    2. Dolce & Gabbana The One Eau de Parfum (RSP: R1110 for 75ml)  This is one of my all time favourite perfumes and one that I feel is going to become a classic in the perfume world, much like Chanel No5 is.  With an oriental-floral fragrance it is beautifully feminine.  (Glossybox offer: R943.95 for 75ml)
    3. Clarins Instant Definition Mascara (RSP:215)  The wand of this mascara has a very clever design.  Part of the wand is made up of traditional bristles that lengthen and provide volume.  The tip of the wand has rubber bristles that separate and define the lashes.  The mascara coats lashes beautifully, creating great volume and lengthening each lash.  Available in 3 colours: Intense Black; Intense Brown and Intense Blue. (Glossybox offer: R182.95)
    4. L'Occitane Immortelle Eye Balm (RSP; R399.95) The 5ml is a very generous sample size that should provide you with about 3-4 weeks of use because a little goes a very long way.  The balm is said to sooth wrinkles, firm skin and relieves dark circles.  I've been using this for under a week now so I can't really say that I've seen the full benefits of using this product - but the skin around my eyes does feel smoother and appear to be more hydrated.  (Glossybox offer: R339.96)
    5. Escada Especially Escada Eau de Parfum (RSP: R895 for 75ml) We received a once off perfume application.  This perfume is probably something that some women wouldn't be too keen on but I personally really like it.  I felt a little greedy with this, longing for a bigger sample in the box.  But with 2 other perfume samples already in the box this is an extra little treat. (Glossybox offer: R760.75)
    6. Lancome Rouge In Love Lipstick (RSP: R250) I love how cute this little lipstick is! It's the perfect size for a makeup purse.  The formula of the lipstick is incredibly hydrating and the colour lasts incredibly well.  Another bonus is the wonderful scent it has.  I received shade Corail in Love (322M) which to me looks like a mix of pink, red and orange.  One thing to take note of is that the range of Rouge In Love lipsticks have matching nail polishes.  It always looks so beautiful when a person matches their nail colour with their lipstick. (Glossybox offer of R212.95)
    I received a slab of Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate.  I think this was included because Lindt was a sponsor at the event and will therefore not be in all the boxes.

    Now for my favourites in the box.  I gave this a lot of thought and it's been incredibly difficult to decide.  My 2 favourites are the L'Occitane Eye Balm and the Lancome Rouge In Love Lipstick.  The inclusion of the wonderful discount voucher means that a lot of us might be able to purchase the full size product of the items we like.  I'll definitely be making use of my voucher to get the lipstick at least.  Remember the voucher has to be redeemed at a Stuttafords store near you before the 1st of July.

    I believe that there were variations in the boxes this month and it seems that a few people are not entirely happy about that - some people were looking forward to the YSL lipstick and Molton Brown bath product.  But I am incredibly happy with the box I received.  When my friends and Mom receive their boxes I'll take a look as see what products are in their boxes.

    Post update - Box variation:

    1. Molton Brown Bath & Shower Gel (RSP: R265 for 300ml) The sample size is 30ml.  From what I have seen and heard there were Ginger & Lilly scented soaps and paradisiac pink pepperpod.  Both scents are absolutely beautiful and a real treat to use. (Glossybox offer: R225.25)
    2. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Our Couture Lipstick (RSP: R365)  Rose Stiletto - shade 9, was in the box.  The little packaging is incredibly feminine and a show stopper.  An incredibly beautiful shade of red - perfect for high impact lip colour. (Glossybox offer: R310.25)
    3. Orlane Vivifying Cleansing Care Toning Lotion (RSP: R465 for 250ml) The sample size is 50ml which is a very generous size!  This toner has a great scent which makes it a pleasure to use.  A lot of times I skip toner so having a product that's nice to use will make me use it more. (Glossybox offer: R395.25)
    I am always happy with the box I receive each month but this month was a serious treat for me considering we got such amazing brands at the cost of a normal box.

    1. My box is exactly the same minus the chocolate. Would have liked a Molton Brown sample in place of the mens perfume. Love the Dolce and Gabbana perfume. That's awesome. @divadesle

    2. Hi Desle

      From what we were told at the launch, the inclusion of the men's fragrance was an extra thrown in by D&G because it's a new fragrance. I gave the box I ordered to my one friend and she got a Molton Brown bath & shower gel bottle, YSL lipstick and Orlane Vivifying Cleansing Care sample. To be honest, originally I was expecting the YSL lipstick, but I do love the Lancome lipstick. I personally am happy with the box I received at the launch because I adore L'Occitane product. Plus I'd rather have the Claris mascara than the Molton Brown soap that will last at most 2 washes. The chocolate was given because Lindor was a sponsor at the launch event - I did not know that it wasn't part of every box. At R130 this box is still amazing because it's filled with great high end brands. Thanks for leaving a comment :)
