Welcome to one of the prettiest and chic Glossyboxes I have ever seen! I was expecting the classic pink box and and instead was this beautiful Parisienne-themed piece of art for the month of October. It is so beautiful that I had to jump the gun and skip the summer Glossyboxes I still have to show you! On top of this beautiful box (that I now MUST find a use for!), there was a consistent theme throughout that acutally MADE SENSE and contained products with some French flair.
Even the inside of the box was beautifully decorated!
Phyto | Phytokeratine Repairing Thermal Protectant Spray
Thoughts: I was so pleased to see the brand Phyto in here because they are an awesome luxury botanically-based hair care brand! I have used the scalp treatment as well as night oil and love both! I was looking for a heat protection spray and was actually planning on purchasing this very item!
Full size: 5oz/$32.00
I received: 1oz/$6.40 (This sample size is actually quite generous and the bottle is still glass)
Maison Francis Kurkdjian | Aqua Universalis
Thoughts: GASP. This is one of the most beautiful scents I have ever inhaled! It is incredibly sophisticated (I would expect nothing less from the French!) and is a blend of bergamot from Calabria, lemon from Sicily and lily of the valley. It is citrusy and yet soft and feminine. I cannot believe how much I love it.
Full size: 2.4oz/$185.00
I received: 0.2mL/$15.42
Nuxe | Gentle Exfoliating Gel with Rose Petals
Thoughts: I have tried a couple of Nuxe products before and they are quite good. Nothing too fragrant and this particular scrub exfoliates with walnut shell powder while soothing skin with rosewater (second ingredient). This will pair nicely with my Bio Beaute by Nuxe routine in the coming weeks.
Full size: 2.6oz/$24.00
I received: *FULL SIZE* (According to card, but I think this is the deluxe gift size?)
Lollipops Makeup Paris | Nail Lacquer in "Voyage a Paris"
Thoughts: Ah, a classic red polish. It doesn't get more chic than that. I have never heard of this brand, but it is from France and although I have not swatched it yet, looks deilghtfully juicy in the bottle.
Full size: 12mL/$10.00
I received: *FULL SIZE*
De Bruyere Paris | Red Lipgloss
Thoughts: Now, this lipgloss I HAD to swatch since I have been on a bit of a bright lips kick and it IS quite pigmented. Not quite blue red, but more on the fuchsia-red and smells kind of like bubblegum?
Full size: 5mL/$17.50
I received: *FULL SIZE*
Total Value of October Glossybox: $73.32
Final verdict: If THIS is how Glossybox is going to be doing their special edition boxes then sign me up! I was so pleased with the presentation and more importantly the actual products inside. Even though I received this as a press sample, THIS is a good box and I've reviewed A LOT Of boxes at this point in the game. Cannot wait to see what Glossybox dishes out for the holidays!
