October Glossybox AND the Exclusive Edition Think Pink box - Contents & Review!

I’m serving up a double whammy Glossybox post for you lucky lot today!  If you are already a subscriber to Glossybox, then this month you will have the chance to receive TWO boxes.  The first is the October box and the second is a new project that GB are working on – the Think Pink Exclusive Editions box.

I have reviewed both boxes below so read on for product contents and reviews!

GLOSSYBOX COTOBER

The October Boxglossyboxoctober

The October Glossybox is all about DIY beauty at home and it contains a selection of products from skin to body to nail care to give you all the ingredients you need to have a beauty pampering session in the comfort of your own home!

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish – I’ve never tried a Sally Hansen nail polish despite always hearing loads about the range, so I’m looking forward to trying this.  I received a bright pink shade which is one of my favourite nail polish shades (although would have been more suitable in the summer months!). 

Skinetica Anti-Blemish – This is by far my favourite product in the box because I love trying out new anti-blemish products.  I have quite bad skin at the moment and this has cleared it right up (my mum even said how nice my skin looked after two days of using this).  You pop some of the liquid onto a cotton pad and sweep it on the affected areas.  Normally these types of products really dry my skin out but I have had no side effects from this – which is fab!

The Organic Pharmacy Enzyme Peel Mask – Face masks always leave me with pimples so I don’t use them often at all, but I think I might just try this one as it refreshes the skin with Vitamin C and Papaya, which I really do need at the moment as I have the flu!

Anatomicals Scrub it Body Scrub – I have way too many body scrubs because I love having soft skin, so I don’t need another but regardless I will still try this – although I really detest the pink grapefruit smell!

Yves Rocher Hydra Vegetal Instant Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer – Having turned 24 last month I think it’s about time I start using anti-wrinkle products (better to catch them now than in 10 years time!).  This one sounds lovely so I’ll probably update you all with how I get on with it!

The Think Pink Exclusive Editions Box
The Exclusive Editions box is Exclusive to active Glossybox subscribers and will be available to purchase.  Each Exclusive box is focused on one particular issue in depth - this box being all about natural and gentle ingredients.

013

Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask – I’ve heard so much about this mask and how it works wonder on brightening the skin.  It uses fruit enzymes to enhance radiance and to remove the top dead layer of skin, gently.  Will report back with results!

Mamma Mia Clean State Foaming Cleanser – This foaming cleanser is SLS-free and contains aloe-vera to balance and moisturize the skin.  I’m looking forward to using this and testing out whether it removes makeup well!

Kosmea Radiance 24/7 Youth Boost – I am pretty sure I have heard of the Kosmea range before: it was started by a mother in her kitchen after mixing natural ingredients to help her children’s nappy rash and her friends eczema.  This serum contains rosehip oil and antioxidant rich berry to help prevent aging and boost the skin!

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster – This serum contains Vit C which works to boost collagen, firm, brighten skin tone and hydrate.  I will be using this in the winter months to keep my skin glowing!

Moroccan Oil Treatment – Believe it or not, I still have never tried Moroccan Oil!  Everyone in the beauty world loves it so it’s sure to be a favourite in this exclusive box.  I’ve tried it once and love it already (it smells so good!).

What do you think of this months Glossybox?  Will you order the new Think Pink box?

  10. I've really gone off the idea of Glossyboxes, I find that if I wanted to try something, I'd buy it and read reviews first before purchasing. Also you can always get samples at counters and shops.

  12. You're so lucky you received that other box, it looks really pretty and the products seem worth the shot. You should definitely give the moroccan oil treatment a try, it works just fine on me!

  13. im mostly concerned with how the "elite" box will diminish the quality of the regular box, which is already dipping in quality contents. Still, looks like you got two good boxes this time :)
