I should have been really really excited about September’s Glossybox, but alas, I already had the most loved item in the box! So, if I didn’t already have this item, I definitely would have been just as excited as everyone else because overall it was a pretty snazzy Glossybox! I’m sad that the price is going up though to $21 as it seems a little much for what we’re getting now so I’m *hoping* this means the products in each box will be of higher quality. We shall see!
Wella Professionals Mirror Polish Shine Spray
Illuminate your style with exquisite shimmer.
Thoughts: I use shine sprays everyday after I straighten my hair so this product was very well-suited to my hair habits. One thing I really liked about the packaging was the glass bottle! There is always something so luxurious about a glass bottle!
Full size: 40mL/$12.99
I received: *FULL SIZE*
B.Kamins Maple Body Lotion and Lip Balm SPF 20
A luxurious anti-aging lotion infused with honey, vitamins A & E and Bio-Maple Compound for ultimate hydration.
A soothing anti-aging lip balm with Bio-Maple Compound and UVA/UVB sunscreens that repairs and protects.
Thoughts: Very cool! I have always wanted to try this Canadian brand, but never really knew where to start! I guess I was expecting both of these products to smell like maple because of the Bio-Maple compound, but as it turns out this compound is actually an anti-oxidant derived from maple trees. The scent is still sweet, but it smells more like honey. Both sound like lovely products to try!
Full size: Lotion – 180mL/$41.00 and Lip Balm – 0.5oz/$21.00
I received: Lotion – 12mL/$2.73 and Lip Balm – 0.13oz/$5.46
Thoughts: I don’t use anti-perspirant so this product will be lost on me and be given to someone who does. Too bad though, it’s a great little sample size!
Full size: 45g/$4.99 (Let’s be generous and take the higher value)
I received: 17g/$1.89
NYX Cosmetics Crimson Amulet Collection Palette
Thoughts: I purchased and reviewed this palette back in June and loved it so if I didn’t already own it, I would be over the moon! I ended up selling mine to someone who is enjoying it VERY much :) My favourite items in this palette were the blushes, eyeliner and lip glosses. The eye shadows were okay, but some had fallout which lowered my overall impression of the palette.
Full size: $25.00
I received: *FULL SIZE*
Total Value of Glossybox: $48.07
I know the Crimson Amulet palettes are discounted to around $10 now, but overall this was a great Glossybox and even though the deodorant and palette were a miss for me, I do love the other three products so September’s Glossybox was a hit for me!
