Sampler Box Reveiw: Glossybox July 2012 Summer Beauty Sample Box
I'm a little behind on this posts, but here is my review of the GLOSSYBOX
from July 2012. Overall I really liked this one. It had a bunch of products I'd either heard of and wanted to try or hadn't heard of and were excited to try.
Again, the size and quality of the samples to me make the higher price of this box worth it ($21/month for the subscription). Here are the samples included in July's GLOSSYBOX
Alessandro International Pedix Heel Rescue Balm:
This luxurious cream is enriched with MarinaVital complex, and helps prevent the build-up of hard skin. It has shea butter, allantoin and tea tree oil to give your feet intensive protection and nourishment. I really like it as a travel sized foot cream, will be going in my pedicure-at-home arsenal. $18.50 for 100 ml (Original size)
Figs & Rouge Lip, Face & Body Balm:
A multi-tasking skincare wonder product for anywhere that needs a little TLC, or vitamins, organic essential oils, and pure shea butter. These balms can be used in any dry skin emergency on lips and skin. I like the slightly grainy texture and old timey looking tin. This is going on my bedside table for sure. $6.00 for 0.26 oz (Original size)
Sebastian Professional Color Ignite Multi Tone Shampoo and Conditioner:
These are great for multi-tonal and lightened hair. They use smart color moisture complex to target the color-treated strands, and deeply moisturize and restructure fibers wherever needed most. The best part? The micro-bubble conditioner whips, wraps and wows the shine. It comes out like men's shaving cream or whipped cream. So fun. And my highlighted hair is happy and healthy. Saving these for my trip to NYC next week, perfect travel sizes! $14.95 for 8.4 oz (Original size) for the shampoo and $16.95 for 6.6 oz (Original size) for the conditioner.
Senna Cosmetics Mineral Eyes Shadow Trio:
Highlight, contour and line in one easy compact. Silky textured pressed mineral eye shadows in metallic and softly matte colors give a hypnotic jeweled or muted, polished finish and amazing dimension. I got Medallion - Metallic gold, metallic khaki and matte fudge brown pressed mineral eyeshadow trio, not my favorite colors personally (and not the one pictured) but you can't win them all. Some of the other color sets sounds more up my alley. Going into the giveaway bin! $24.00 for 0.14 oz (Original size)
Ruddy Water Blushed Pouch:
Blushed Pouch, Ruddy Water's premier fragrance, is infused onto a soft, cotton towelette, ready for swiping on your pulse points for a warm, bright and sweet experience and sealed in a trendy, orange, petite portable pouch. This is a cute idea, and if the scent profile of the fragrance was more to my liking I would totally buy. Very portable and easy to apply, even in public, since the towelette is not overly noxious. $22.00 for 24 pouches (Original size)
So again, this GLOSSYBOX
was really to my liking and worth the $21 price tag. I liked that it included some body care, makeup, hair, and fragrance. A great sample set.
