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
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!
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 :)
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!
