On Halloween day I got my October "Breast Cancer Awareness" Glossybox.Glossybox and I must say I've been really happy with them. I did get this one at the old price of $15 (from now on they will be $21 monthly). If you wanted to join and save 10% off your first box use the code GLOSSY55.
Talks about the products and their prices. Inside talks about breast cancer and how awareness is important and so are exams. No mention of a donation.
1) Sebastian Professional Trilliance Shampoo & Conditioner:
A 50ml bottle of each. They look interesting. 250 ml cost $15.79 or $16.59.
2) ModelCo Flipstick Lip Duo:
A lipstick on one side and gloss on the other and a little built in mirror. I got the shades dusk and striptease. These look neat and I cannot wait to try. Full size and it retails for $38.75. Note: Says it is for subscribers only, I wonder what one month only people got?
3) Zoya Nail Polish:
This polish was in Rory. I've never tried Zoya despite everything good I've heard about it over the years, so it is exciting...plus I love the shade. Full Size and it cost $8.00 retail.
4) Jouviance Rejuvenating Anti-again Cream:
I never heard of this until this box showed up, then I went to my Shoppers and there was a big display. Who knew. Interesting to try. This bottle is 5 ml and a full size is 50 ml and retails for $93.50.
5) Bellette Venus:
This is a venus olay razor. Not excited at all about this one. Not a high end products, not something you probably couldn't get for free somewhere else. This is a full size and retails for $16.99.
Cards that came with the box:
Jouviance flyer, a big pull out with lots of products and details.
Venus&Olay coupon, buy a blade refill get free shaving cream.
Caroline Neron online coupon.
Overall I am really excited to try out many of these brands, none of which I have used before.
I am a little let down that this box was called the "Breast Cancer Awareness" box when only one of the items even mentions it (they picked 4 pink shades of polish to represent the diversity of the women affected by breast cancer) and there was no donations made to any charities regarding breast cancer. I highly suspected this was the case when the box's name had the word Awareness in it...meaning ....well ....nothing at all. I found this particularly disappointing because last month there was a donation to a organization regarding its red carpet theme, where as this one has a more important one and nothing was done.
Oh well, I rant.
This box is worth well over its $15 cost with just the lipstick/gloss alone which makes me very happy.
RATING: A+ (the box has a value of about $70 and I like most of the items)
