Happy Halloween from our casa to your casa. Don’t forget today is the big day for the Rafflecopter drawing of the winners for the Big October Beauty Giveaway, so stay tuned!
The second box we had the pleasure of unboxing today was the October offering from Glossybox. Glossybox did pretty well last month, what with the OCC Lip Tar and a few other goodies, so we were curious to see what this month might bring and whether it was perhaps worth keeping or kicking it to the curb for the new year.
Let’s see what awesomeness the October box might (or might not) bring.
Well, look what we have here…Not in the actual Glossybox but in the shipping box is a $40 coupon for Hello Fresh, which is one of those trendy businesses that creates recipes, gathers ingredients, and delivers them to you for preparing the chosen meal in your own kitchen. Okay, this is BOMB. Seriously, if I lived in a big city, I’d be all over this baby; however, living out in the middle of orange groves with the nearest “big” (snort) city about 50 miles away, I’m somehow guessing Casa Beholding Eye will not be in their delivery range. I do, however, fully intend to check and put this to good use if by some miracle of transportation we are in their delivery range.
RETAIL VALUE: $40.00
Glossybox has the prettiest boxes, really aesthetically pleasing and sturdy, too. Very simple and classy.
Now for the important stuff…the contents!
Well, this looks promising…anything that starts with a full-sized Tarte product is probably going to be a winner in Casa Beholding Eye. Woot!!!
This is the Tarte Power Pigment in Flush. It’s by Tarte. It’s a lip product. It’s full-sized. It’s a home run. Need we say more?
RETAIL VALUE: $24.00.
Next up is a full-sized (way to go, Glossybox, we’re impressed, and that ain’t no easy feat!) bottle of Proganix Repair Reparative Oil + Anti-Breakage serum. This product claims to contain all sorts of awesomeness to treat dry, damaged hair, repair split ends, and “addresses” frizziness. Hmmm. “Addresses” frizziness? Is that anything like actually “controlling” frizziness? If so, we’re in…In for a penny, in for a pound.
RETAIL VALUE: $11.99.
Next by Nails Inc is Westminster Bridge Matte Top Coat. Okay, we’re seriously looking forward to trying this. If it works well, this has the potential of doubling our nail lacquer collection because matte colors can look vastly different from high gloss colors. And this product is also full-sized. Love it!
RETAIL VALUE: $10.00
Vince Camuto…Widely renowned for his UH-MAZING shoes, it’s nice to see he’s branching out into other fashion arenas. This fragrance, Amore, is in the prettiest little bottle and, although sample sized, is just perfect. Bonus points: It smells DIVINE.
RETAIL VALUE: Approximately $10.00.
And the last item in the box is something we’ve been curious about trying. It’s a full paper face mask…you know, being Halloween, so you can rock the Michael Myers look whilst beautifying your skin. This one is by Sesha and it is their Cell-White Brightening Mask. It says it is designed to refresh and invigorate dull-looking skin with brightening ingredients like mulberry extract and vitamin C. Sounds good to us…BOO!!!!!
RETAIL VALUE: $9.00.
TOTAL RETAIL VALUE: Approximately $105 (for which subscribers pay $21/month)
Okay, we’re impressed with Glossybox this month, no ifs, ands or buts about it. There’s not a single product in here we won’t use (and probably love). No question about it, we’ll be keeping Glossybox around for another month to see what November holds.
