Hey everyone! Happy October!
Here is the latest GLOSSYBOX beauty box subscription for the US. Yes, I know it is last month's box but as some of you may know by now, the boxes come at the end of the month, and if any month you should decide to subscribe, you actually subscribe to the next month's box and not the current. I hope that makes sense! (So what I mean is, even though today is October 1st, if you decided to subscribe now then you'd actually be signing up for November's box.)
September's theme was Fall Forward. I think it's a great theme as I keep seeing all of the fall trends and fashions etc. even though it still doesn't really feel like fall here during the day (our weather is still in the high 90s!).
Each month's box comes with a list of the products inside and include pricing for their full sizes.
Here's what was inside my box! You can see that it's well worth the $22 monthly subscription price.
GKHAIR Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner. Nourished with plant extracts, this superior smoothing shampoo will purify and moisturize the scalp and hair. This gentle, moisturizing conditioner puts the finishing touch on your tresses and leaves your hair smooth, radiant, and revitalized.
Hmm actually the set I received says "Balancing," not "Moisturizing," but I'm still happy that I can use it. I like that this time GLOSSYBOX choose a formula that can be used by most hair types.
KOH GEN DO Cleansing Spa Water. Made with mineral-rich Japanese hot spring water, this best-selling spa water is infused with six essential herbs to protect and nurture skin. In a single sweep, it gently removes makeup and skin's toughest impurities.
Ohh, this was such a pleasant surprise in my box! I'd just seen a big ad for this brand at Sephora the other day. I'm not yet familiar with this brand but I like that it contains "no artificial colors, fragrance or petroleum-based mineral oil."
MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42. Hailing from Korea, this Blemish Balm, also known as BB Cream is a multi-tasking powerhouse for the face. This multi-use cream provides light coverage, soothes, protects, and moisturizes. Suitable for all skin types.
I thought it was really cool that GLOSSYBOX included a full-sized BB cream from a Korean/Asian brand, especially since I have noticed that quite a few people either wonder what's the difference between BB cream and tinted moisturizer or say that the western brands don't compare to Asian brands. This will really introduce the brand and Asian BB creams to a more mainstream public.
KRYOLAN FOR GLOSSYBOX Moisture Rich Lipstick in GLOSSY Pink. Treat your lips to a creamy, long-lasting lipstick enriched with Vitamin E to stimulate and hydrate your lips. This perfect pop of GLOSSY pink compliments all skin tones and lifestyles.
Yes, finally a lip color that I actually like and can/would wear! I am no stranger to pink lipsticks but somehow, I can't seem to ever really have enough. ;)
I think GLOSSYBOX has been steadily improving since their first US premiere. I really liked the full and large sizes of this month's products (no dinky little samples!). I also really like that they incorporate brands from other countries, which gives the box a nice, global feel. I'm definitely looking forward to using everything in my box!
On another note, I tried swatching the ELF blushers from my last post, which I do really like for the cheap prices (but bear in mine, they are cheap because they do contain ingredients like talc and "paraffinum liquidum" (mineral oil), which some people may not like or even experience break out from). However, I wasn't too happy with my pictures though so I'm just going to have to scrap that since I have so many other posts I want to get to this month (or else I won't get to it for a bit). I'm sure you can find plenty of quality swatches online or else just take a chance and spend $3. =)
