Novembers Issue of Glossy Box

It’s Glosssssy time! (sung in a high pitched voice)

The Christmas Gift Guide: Part 1 – 5 products to try before you buy whether for yourself or others

Arbonne FC5Ultra Hydrating Hand Creme (15ml) £19 for  118ml
Soothing creme moisturises hands, leaving a healthy appearance and skin feeling smooth and refreshed.
I go through a lot of hand creams especially in winter so I am happy to receive and try a new one. It does make your hands feel lovely and smooth, I do not like the smell! Ugh overpowering and too much of a sniff gives me a headache. I am sensitive to some smells so this might be OK for others.



Dead Sea Spa MagikDead Sea Bath Salts (250g) £5.50for 1kg
2011 Beauty Awards winner. Fantastic for alleviating dry skin conditions as well as a natural exfoliant, Dead Sea Bath Salts remarkably improves skin texture.
I’m pretty sure GB gave out the salt scrub from this brand a few months ago and there were great reviews so I am sure this would be lovely to use, just a shame I have about 2 baths a year! Yes I do shower 😉
I don’t think the packaging was thought out as in no doubt the salts will go everywhere once its opened. It will need to be transferred to some kind of container.
Etro  – Set of 5 Fragrance vials (0.05 FL OZ each) £61 for 50ml
Introducing Etro’s fashion.These five fragrances celebrate the most superior notes of the ETRO fragrance lines.
 OK yet again more perfume, there are 5 though so it’s not too bad. They are quite light and pleasant smelling. So I might actually use them.
Nail Rock – Designer Nail Wraps (full size) £6.65
The new Nail Rock designer nail wrap range is designed to last up to 7 days on nails and 8 weeks on the toes. They won’t chip or stain the nail, require no drying time and deliver on trend style in just 15 minutes.
Meh. Not really into nail wraps, especially the designs I have been given. I can’t imagine you’d want to keep them on your toes for 8 weeks, surely they’d need a trim in that time??
Philip Kingsley  – Elasticizer (40ml) £52.10 for 500ml
Intensive, super moisturising pre-shampoo treatment for all hair types. Adds elasticity, manageability, bounce and shine.
This is the only product I am excited about! I was going to buy Philip’s shampoo and conditioner once I ran out of what I am using at the moment. Hopefully I will get some time to test it today.
So I am not overly excited by this months box. I hope Decembers will be much better!
What did everyone else get? Have I been hard done by?
You can sign up here to still receive this months box or for Decembers…I’d wait for December if I were you.

    Haven't received mine yet but hair product the only one I'm excited about (hope I actually get it). Perfume is a bit of a con…we could get those samples ourselves in department stores. I'm thinking of switching boxes next year…any suggestions?x

    Agree bored of the perfume samples, I'm not opposed to having them in the box just not every month! Yes and also eyeliners, why so many?

    @izzy I am in love with Carmine at the moment, outstanding and especially as there have been no perfume's so far. FeelUnique are very good and have had some great products too! I like Boudoir Prive but most of the products would be too expensive for me to buy full size, is nice to try luxurious items though 🙂
