Glossybox: October 2012

I came home last night to my October GLOSSYBOX. This month's theme is a selection of products for an indulgent and cosy night in to brave the gloomy October weather. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and so GLOSSYBOX are supporting the cause and donating to Breast Cancer Care Charity. The products always come beautifully packaged as normal using a pale pink box with black tissue paper, pink ribbon and this month a breast cancer sticker to fit with the theme.

Anatomicals Don't just clean it woman, scrub it body scrub (worth £1.30) I love the packaging and product names of this quirky brand, however I feel this contains cheap ingredients and I prefer using natural products on my body so will be passing this onto someone else to try. 

Yves Rocher Instant Anti-wrinkle moisturiser Hydra Vegetal (*Full Size* £18)
This cream provides deep and lasting moisture and immediately smoothes wrinkles enriched with Hyaluronic Acid for greater effectiveness. This is a product I was unaware of but shall be passing this onto my mum to try.

Skinetica Anti-blemish (worth 69p)
This is a solution for clearing skin blemishes, showing results in 2-3 days, kind to skin and with no side effects. I look forward to trying this out as I usually trust Sudacream for treating spots.

Green People Organic Self Tan (worth £1.89)
I have quite a few Green People products now from various beauty boxes and here is another to add to the collection! Looking forward to trying this organic natural tan, as I would imagine the result would be quite natural which is ideal during winter.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure (*Full Size* worth £6.99)
I received the shade 'Black Platinum' which is a dark grey/black polish with silver shimmer running through. I haven't tried Sally Hansen polishes for a while, but have heard good things recently so looking forward to trying this, plus its a great dark shade for A/W. 

This month's box contained a good selection of products however I wouldn't say they fitted in with a 'at home spa' kit - I would of liked to have seen a hair treatment, luxury bath product or face mask. I have totted up the value of the products and it comes to roughly £28.87 which for £10 (plus £2.95 P&P) is not bad but this month I wasn't over whelmed by any of the products, although I'm interested to see how the tan works and the spot treatment! That is the point of beauty boxes but the last couple of Glossyboxes have been a little disappointing in terms of the product selection - Let's hope that next month's box is a better one! You can find out more and order your own GLOSSYBOX here.

What do you think of this month's GLOSSYBOX? Did you receive anything different to mine?


  1. Oooo looks like a good box this month.

  2. I think this month's box is one of the better ones xx

  3. My box is so different :) I got a lippy and some bb cream and olay sample.

    I’m also running a giveaway so would love if you could enter!

  4. Wow that actually looks like a really good box you got; I had the worst luck with getting crap I didn't like in my glossyboxes so I cancelled my subscription :/
