And the beauty boxes just keep on coming! This month's GLOSSYBOX's theme was "Pure Luxury" - "pamper nourishing your body from head to toe with rech, technologically-advanced products infused with vitamins, natural oils and sublime color. As the season comes to an end, wrap yourself in pure luxury." I don't know about you, but I like when a beauty box has a theme. Let's see what's inside...

I love the name of this product! It's an all in one moisturizer and makeup base (never heard of such a thing!). It is made with 4 flower extracts to help keep your skin moist while relieving irritation and the honey texture boosts skin's radiance. I enjoyed using this product and find the concept to be brilliant.

This facial serum was amazing! I've talked about the benefits of Vitamin C and this serum is also loaded with antioxidants to fight off free radicals. There are also calming properties for sensitive skin (which I have) and helps protect your skin throughout the day. No wonder it's won awards!

This oil features a Moringa Oil Blend that penetrates your hair to replenish it and protect. It is very lightweight and reminds me a lot of K√©rastase's Elixir Ultime but Matrix's oil is a fraction of the price.

Not to sound perverted but I really think "taint" is an awful name for a brown nail polish (lol!). Looking at their site, they had some other questionable names like "Blow" and "Phallic." It's a pretty color though - think I'll wear it with my Essie "Good as Gold" that I just received as a Klout perk.

I already received an Ellis Faas lip gloss in my Beauty Box 5 this month. This color was a burnt orange. Not something I'd wear every day. Perhaps I could rock it during Fashion Week?

Overall, there were 2 full size products and two nearly full sized samples. I really liked all the products in the box, which is rare for me so I was pretty impressed.

What did your get in your Glossybox this month?

Disclosure: This box was provided to me for review. All opinions are my own. 


  1. Great stuff in this box for sure! And yes, I agree "taint" is a horrible name for that color - eek!

  2. glossybox sounds great! i had a birchbox and ended up cancelling it. do you mind if I ask how much it is? is there a wait list?

    1. It's $21/month and I don't think there is a waiting list but it's still launching in the US

  3. wow you liked all! And LOL at those names!

  4. nice. i just started using a serum and i am so in love, i bet this OH one is fab.

    1. Definitely need to include a face serum into your routine. I love the OH one and it smells great :)


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
