My First Glossybox!

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Yay, i finally got my very first Glossybox!  I've been anxiously awaiting and now it's finally here!  I took a peek at last month's box via other bloggers/youtube and was SO sad that i didn't act on it!  I really wanted that Burberry lipstick!  Oh well, you win some and you lose some!  Nevertheless, this one is here and it certainly did not disappoint.  Let me begin with the packaging!  Honestly, I'd have to say most of my monthly delivery services have nice packaging, but this one takes the cake!  This box is way too cute to discard!  I will definitely find some good use for it!  OK, now lets get to the good stuff!  This box came equipped with the July issue of Glossy Mag, packed with everything you need to know to stay cool and look hot during the scorching summer months! I'm a magazine junkie, and truly enjoyed reading this unexpected few pages of goodness!

The items in this month's box are all about 'Summer Simplicity'!  The first item i sampled was the AHAVA Mineral Botanic Hibiscus & Fig Velvet Cream Wash.  This mouth full body wash did not disappoint.  It's very light in fragrance making it for a pleasant shower experience.  The worst thing ever is feeling overwhelmed by a strong scent! Yuck!  It's incredibly hydrating to the skin.  Even after my shower was complete, my skin felt so soft and radiant!  Thanks AHAVA & Glossybox!

The next item is the Smooth Shave Cream by First Aid Beauty.  To be honest, i have yet to try this.  I'm almost finished with my 'Intuition' razor, which is what i typically use, so as soon as it's done, I'll purchase some new razors to pair with this promising shave cream!  I'll keep you posted!

Next item is the OFRA cosmetics eyeshadow Ice in the color Goldilocks!  Don't you just love that name??  It's a gorgeous gold cream shadow that I'm loving right now!  All you need is a dab of mascara, a touch of cheek/lip stain and you are all set!  Perfect to create that 'summer simple' sun kissed glow!

In this box, i also received a pack of three V Beauty products which included the 'Lite Up Intense Brightening Agent/Serum', Buying Time Everyday Cream and Eye Never Nourishing Repair Eye Cream.  I'll note that they're paraben free, fragrance free, gluten free, nut free, oat free, dermatology tested and not tested on animals making these products a gem in my book! 

The Wella Professionals Enrich Moisturizing Treatment was fantastic!  Although it was a very generous size, my hair is so thick and course that it didn't take much before it was all gone!  I will definitely replenish this! 

Lastly was a perfume sample called Urban Organic from A Perfume Organic.  It's a rather pleasant citric scent if you're into that.  Although i enjoyed the scent, i don't foresee myself wearing this.  I could however, splash it in certain places in the house for a mild fresh scent!

Overall I'm very pleased with my first Glossybox and look forward to many more!  Do you have a subscription?  What are your thoughts if you do?  If you don't currently subscribe and are curious about it, just click here!
