Beauty Treats: Part One

Glossybox and StarBox and The Natural Beauty Box, oh my! Halloween has brought me a different kind of treat, Lovelies! So many boxes, so little time! I had to split this into 2 posts! :O

The Natural Beauty Box October 2012

This month was the first month TNBB sent out international packages so some subscribers had to wait a little while before receiving theirs. Not me! I love the sub and have been really glad I have some all natural products in deluxe sizes to try :) Let's open her up!

At the top we have the Happy Pumpkin Exfoliating Mini Sugar Pumpkin Soap. This little guy is a really good exfoliator. Just the right amount of roughness. From left to right: Virga Botanicals Gentle Creamy Facial Cleanser with Lavender- This left my skin feeling so soft and smelling great. Loved using this! Burst Organic Beauty Bar Love Bubbles Body Wash in coffee+caramel. Burst Organics actually lets you customize your products ie: you pick the scent, moisturizer, and antioxidant. Pretty cool huh? Would make a great gift....or just a treat for yourself :) On the right is an assortment of Natural Bath Salts from Wine Delights. Even cuter: They come in Wine, Beer, and Champagne flavours! My kind of bath, ahaha!

On top L to R: Burst Organic beauty Bar  Super rich Island Butter in Blueberry+Vanilla, Authentic Skin Remedies Balance Seawater Facial Mist, which I have tried and I find refreshing. I used it as a toner as well.
On bottom L to R: Accidental Herbal Cinnamon Honey Lip Jam, yum and great on my lips! Ariona Healing Balm

At the top left is a generously sized vial of St. John's Wort Oil. I don't know too much about it but from what I've read, its a very versatile oil. The little sample below it is Biograzia Bio-Regen Face cream. And finally a little bottle of Petal Organics Firming Phyto Petal Bio Active Body Cream. The full size has a pretty steep price tag on it, so this better work!

Starbox October 2012

This is quickly becoming a popular box and its not hard to see why! The theme for this box was See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil. They included a pair of eye tattoos! I didn't get this in time for a halloween party, but i think I might keep these anyway. They are just so cool! The eyeliner at the bottom is in Gold Dust. I don't have many of these but at the top right is a bottle of eyeshadow pigment in Posh. And a lipstick called Masquerade. Again love these little boxes! All are full sized Starlooks products as well :)

Glossybox October 2012 Breast Cancer Awareness Edition

As per usual, My Glossybox got here right on the last day of October. No surprises here. And with the new price increase, I will be watching Glossybox closely til the end of the year to see if its worth it to stay on.

From Left to right:
1)Bottom left: Modelco Flipstick Lip Duo in Dusk/Striptease. I've never had one of these before but it sure looks handy with a mirror on the side.

2) Zoya Nailpolish in Scarlett: This pink is a little light then something I would choose for myself but it looks like a great french manicure pink!

3)Jouviance Rejuvenating Anti-Aging Cream

4)Gilette Venus razor

5) Sebastian Preofessional Trilliance Shampoo & Conditioner: Score! just as I was running out!

So a pretty good box this month. But again, Glossybox is on probation.....

Stay tuned for part 2!


  1. We got the same boxes with the exceptions to different scents and polishes. I like the concept behind burst.

    Can't wait to see part 2 :)

  2. Great haul! Do you think Glossy will be worth the $21 in upcoming months?

    1. I hope so but I have this sinking feeling it will not :( I have decided to stay on for the rest of the year and make my mind up in January.

  3. I wish I had gotten my The Natural Beauty Box! I subbed early on September 21 (for October's box) after seeing your review of them and when I saw on FB that you could get your tracking number by contacting them, I did that. I love to know where my packages are! But they couldn't find me! In the end, they told me they had a problem with their paypal notification system and they were out of October boxes they offered me November plus a free December. I'm taking it well since I get that extra box, but for something that has been paid since September, it's long. And the notification reason is weird. If that's true, they could have many many people who did not get their box that they can't even know about... Maybe it was a more simple organization or human error of some kind on their end. Either way, I know these things happen so I'm patient and OK with it all - it doesn't seem to be the norm with them, I've never read anything bad.

    Anyway, in November, I will be able to finally review my own Natural Beauty Box!

    BTW, the Starlooks is cool. :)


Thanks for stopping by. I do love reading all your comments and try to respond to each and every one!
Thank you, Lovelies :D
