Glossybox Canada February 2013

By Sunday, March 03, 2013

This is my February 2013 Glossybox. Notice it is in a pretty black and pink box, that is because it is their first birthday themed box. Let's take a peek inside.
So as always I received 5 items with at least one being full sized. This time around we got 3 full sized items so I was pretty darn happy.
Macadamia  Natural Hair Oil - 30 ml sized sample bottle. This sample size bottle is for retail purchase, but is not a full sized product. It retails for $13.50. 
Givenchy Gloss Interdit no. 3 Coral Frenzy is 3.5 ml full size of 6 ml retails for $30. I have yet to try anything other then fragrances from the brand so I am very excited for this gloss.
Essence Quarttro Eyeshadow this full sized at 5g and retails for $3.99. I love Essence and although I am fairly familiar with the brand, it is still fairly new to Canada and I hope by having this product in the box it helps expose the brand to more Canadians. 
Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips - Ultra there are 6 in this pack and it is a full sized item that retails for $9.99. I love Bioré and have tried the regular strips before, so I am pretty excited to try out these stronger Ultra strips.
Anatomicals You Need A Blooming Shower! Rose and Jasmine Body Cleanser This is a full sized product at 150 ml and retails for $3.00. I have never heard of this brand so I am excited to give it a try. I love roses and jasmine, but I cannot find any mention of jasmine on the actual package, making me wonder if it is the right product or not.
Bonus items:
There were 3 extra items sent to us in this box.
Glossybox Cupcake Liners and Decorative Toothpicks  we are told on the info sheet to follow them on social media to learn great ways to use these. They also say they are spreading the birthday joy with them.
Crabtree and Evelyn Tarocco Orange Eucalyptus and Sage Ultra-Moisturizing Hand Therapy Sachet this is a tiny sachet of hand cream. We are told we will get a full sized in a future box, and a full sized is 25 g and retails for $8.00
Eucerin Hyal-Urea Anti-Wrinkle Day / Night Cream Sachet Duo a packet of day and night cream. Fragrance free.
Overall I am happy with this box. It is the best one in a long time. The brands I know are great brands  and the brands that are new to me are items I will use. Is it an over the top amazing celebration of their first year in Canada (they launched in January not February btw), no, no it certainly is not. But it is a great box and I do like it. I got my value and them some so as I said I'm happy, no complaints here.
P.S I tossed the sachets and cupcake liners, nice bonuses but I was never going to use them.

P.P.P.S. now I'm just making fun of them for so many P.S. on the paper
