September Glossybox 2012 – Contents!

September’s Glossy Box is a special one as the design on the box was created by illustrator Maggie Li.  I attended a special launch to show off this Glossybox so I can give you a sneak peek of all of the products in this box – which you can see below!

What I got in my box -

Lady Gaga Fame Fragrance – This is one of the samples I was most excited about when I saw the box, as I hadn’t yet tried the perfume and because I’d heard so much about it.  I have to say I really, really like this perfume.  I thought it would be a lot darker (as in musky and woody) but the fragrance is surprisingly sweet and girly. 

L’Oreal Proffessionnel Mythic ‘Colour Glow’ Oil (and a sachet of the shampoo and conditioner) – I am a massive hair oil fan so I am so happy to know own this as it’s one I haven’t tried before!  I’ve heard lots about L’Oreal’s Mythic oil being fab so I’m really excited to use it.  This is also a full size product which retails at £15.95 so it’s a bargain to receive it in this box.  If you receive the oil you will also receive two sachets of the range to try out along with it, so you can really see how the whole regime works together on your hair.

Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Complex – I’ve reached the age where I’m starting to worry about preventing wrinkles and fine lines so I’m really looking forward to using this on my forehead, eyes and neck!

Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream – I first heard about the Balance Me range at the Vitality Show earlier this year.  I do love eye creams (even though I am terrible at remembering to use them).  This eye cream boasts 99% natural origin ingredients which is fab, although it does smell very strongly of essential oils, which makes me think it contains a lot of perfume (which is a skin irritant).  I’ll try this and see how I get on!

Rodial Glamoxy Snake Serum and 5 Minute Facial Sachets – These sachets are very interesting – one being a Snaker Serum which reduces with appearance of wrinkles and the other being a 5 Minute Face Mask.  I will happily try both of these!

What I think – I really like this box as it includes products which I generally would have picked out myself in stores (the mythic oil and fame perfume).  Even though I am usually cautious when it comes to trying out lots of skincare products on my acne prone skin, I am looking forward to trying out the moisturizers as it can’t hurt to use anti aging products!

What do you think of Septembers box? Have you tried Gaga’s Fame perfume?

  7. The box looks very pretty! but I personally like the pink one better, just because I like simple things. I get the USA box but I'm always very curious about what people get on the UK one, wish I could get that shampoo since my hair is very oily as well :( I'm also very curious about Lady Gaga's perfume

  11. I bought the perfume just the other day and I absolutely love it! The only downside is that the scent fades quite quickly. It's still there if you take a whiff but it's much weaker after just a couple of hours. That said, I really do adore it.

  12. i'm a little curious to receive mine which was due to be dispatched manually yesterday... and I'm a little curious as to what that little Maggie Li designed pot is? The one in the tied up cellophane?

    sure hope I get that, whatever it is!
