September Glossybox!!!

Yay it's finally here!! My first ever Glossybox. I just couldn't wait to open it and share it with you guys. For those of you who don't know, Glossybox is a monthly subscription service. You pay £12.95 and you get 5 high end deluxe samples of the newest beauty products to hit the market. The thought and detail that goes into the gorgeous packaging is incredible. I took a picture of every stage of me opening the box so you can come along for the experience with me. Here we go!

This is what the Glossybox looked like when I opened it up. The pink card was a welcome from Glossybox, introducing abit about this months box and the company.

Flipping the card round, there was a list of products that came in the Glossybox this month along with a little discription.

After opening the tissue I saw all the products laid out nicely in the box on some shredded black paper.

The first thing on the list was the HD Brows Eye Brow Palette. This is probably the product I was initially most excited about. I brought the Benefit Browzing a while back but didn't enjoy it to much. Because of that, i have never splurged in another eyebrow palette. I have always just stuck to my Sleek Eye Brow Pencil. This however looked impressive from the off.

This was the product out of the box. A black plastic shiny case. (Excuse the reflection of my ceiling light in the casing).

The product consists of 4 different colours. A nude (top left), Carbon (top right), Warm brown (bottom left), and Ash Brown (bottom right), with a brush and a mirror.

Here are swatches of all 4 colours. My hair is really dark so i think that Carbon will probably work best for me.

This is the second product on the list. Nuxe, is described as a dry oil that you can use on your face, skin or hair. I am hoping that this will work a bit like Morrocan Oil as i will most probably use this on the tips of my hair. I already have oily skin and putting more oil on it would only make it worse. However shine in my hair to make it more glossy wouldn't go a miss.

This is 10ml or 0.33fl.oz. It's £27.50 for 100ml

This is the product that probably confuses me the most. Omorovicza is a Thermal Cleansing Balm that is meant to cleanse the skin without stripping it to leave it feeling soft and radiant. This will be interesting to try out. Its certainly a product i have never heard of before.

This is 5ml or 0.17fl.oz. Its £46 for 50ml.

The product is in a frosty glass jar. It looks very ominous i must admit, but we shall see how it goes.

Next is Plum Eau De Parfum by Mary Greenwell. I am a minor perfume addict so i went to smell this straight away. I am not very good at describing smells but i find that it is a very mature, grown up smell. This is Mary's debut perfume. She is a make up artist that said she was inspired by style icons and colour. The top notes are: peach, blackcurrent, plum, bergamont and lemon. Heart notes of: gardenia, tuberose, orange flower absolut, rose absolut, and jasmine absolut. Followed by dry down of precious woods, sandalwood, oakmoss, patchouli, amber and white musks.

This is 15ml or 0.05fl.oz. Its £60 for 50ml.

Finally there is Rahua Shampoo and conditioner. Rich, organic and 100% natural.

This is 10ml or 0.34fl.oz. Its 21.95 for 275ml of Shampoo or  £23.50 for the Conditioner.

'For longer, stronger hair. Adds bounce, body and shine. Ideal for colour treated hair'.

It all looks pretty awesome. I can't wait to try it. Hope you enjoyed looking at everything with me :)


  1. Oh jealous that you got Nuxe Oil, it's amazing! x

  2. Really? Oh i'm really looking forward to trying it out now :) Have you been using it for a while? xxo

  3. I got exactly the same. Can't wait to try everything out!

  4. @Edge of Beauty - I got a sample of it in my first Feel Unique Beauty Box and love it! It's wonderful on the ends of your hair as a leave in conditioning treatment, works great in baths and on the skin and it's really good to use on your face before going to bed at night. I have oily/combination skin too so only use it at night and wake up to the softest skin ever! x

  5. Complete con. The rest of us got sachets and the kind of samples you can pick up for free at any department store. One bottle of conditioner and the brow palette and that was it.

  6. @E V E L Y N - oh cool :) ill give it a go then. I put a bit in my hair earlier and i liked the smell as a first reaction. xxo

    @Ashleigh - aweome. you'll have to let me know what you think of that thermal cleansing balm. Looks a bit intimidating if you ask me. haha. xxo

    @brooksl38 - was it the rahua conditioner you got? I guess its luck of the draw. xxo
