Glossybox - October

Well, after waiting foreeeever for my October Glossybox, it finally arrived yesterday! But, for the first time ever for me, I have an issue. I am missing an item from my box! So, this review will only be over the four items I received. I have contacted Glossybox to inform them of my missing item and I will update this when I hear back from them and receive a replacement! This will be my first time dealing with Glossybox's customer service and I have read both positive and negative reviews on this aspect of their service, so I will definitely fill you all in on the results.

The theme for this month's box is Spa Luxe, and it promises products to help us pamper ourselves. What did I get this month?

Glossybox always has my favorite presentation - chic, simple, and tied with a bow. 

Here's the list of items in my box. The item I did not receive is the Kryolan blush - a full sized custom blush made for Glossybox! Definitely a bummer that it was left out of my box, so I have my fingers crossed for a replacement. Mistakes happen, but it's definitely how a company handles mistakes like this that matters to me.

This is Exfoliating Loofa Soap by Heartland Fragrances! It's a hand poured glycerin soap with natural loofa inside for exfoliation and to improve blood flow. I got the scent "peppermint" and it is nice and strong and minty. In fact, if you sit the soap out of the package, it kind of doubles as an air freshener!

I love this soap. It feels great on the feet and legs, it's a bit tingly from the mint and it's scrubby, but not too harsh, in my opinion. This is the full sized soap. I will be buying some of these!

This is an Enzyme Facial Peel by Nastassja Skin. It uses papaya enzymes to remove dead skin and leave the skin smooth and radiant. I love enzyme peels, so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how this one works for me. It's a tiny little pot, but products like this generally go a long way for me, so I will get several uses out of it. It smells nice and tangy.

This is Luminous Bamboo Shine Mist by Alterna! It is a shine enhancing mist for the hair. It smells nice and fresh, and it did leave my hair nice and silky. I already have a few other products like this, so it's nothing groundbreaking for me, but the sample is a nice size and it's good to have.

And finally, a 2 in 1 product - a lip duo by Model Co. The colors are Dusk and! The lipstick is a nice subtle nude shade, and the gloss is a sheer peachy pink with shimmer. They both smell like strawberry! I was surprised to enjoy these colors, the lipstick looks very natural on me and not as brown as I worried, and the gloss is nice and not sticky. This is my first time trying anything by Model Co and I wouldn't mind trying more!

Also, Glossymag made a comeback this month! It's a nice touch, I think.

So, had I received my blush, I would be very happy with this month's box! I am hoping Glossybox handles this well for me, and I will update this post when I hear from them!

What are your favorite pampering spa products?

I love reading the review of these boxes just because it introduces so many new companies that I've never heard of before haha we've been thinking of a subscription, there's so many out there and I hear good and bad about each hmmm

I love subscription boxes so much! They're definitely really different, though, and each one is suited for a different type of person.

You could do what I did - I just started trying them one by one, gave each one a 2-3 month trial and if it didn't meet my needs moved on to the next. :)

I hope so too! I know their service will be limited for a bit because of Sandy, so Im being patient...

yousoldtheworld said...

Thanks, and absolutely! :D You've been followed!

yousoldtheworld said...

Aw, I'm sad for you, too! They are a lot of fun!

I've followed you as well. :)

yousoldtheworld said...

I hope so, too, because I'm happy with everything else!

I love seeing what other countries get each month, too!

The verdict is that I LOVE THE SOAP. It wasn't too scratchy like I worried, it actually felt awesome on my itchy skin. I think I'm addicted to it. :)

And I still haven't tried the peel, but I have a similar one and it's nice and not as scary as it sounds :)

I still love Glossybox!

yousoldtheworld said...

I've followed you! I think you should give Glossybox a shot, they haven't disappointed me yet. :)
