October Byrdie Beauty Glossybox

Glossybox sent me their October box to review, and as usual, I was so impressed! If you haven't read my reviews of Glossybox or heard of the service before, it's a monthly subscription sample box delivery service, where you pay $21 a month to recieve 4-5 "deluxe samples" delivered right to your door. To find out more, you can see my previous reviews here, or visit their site for more info! Keep reading to find out what was in this month's special collaboration box with Byrdie Beauty, WhoWhatWear's new beauty site, and what I thought about each product!
Packed with nutrients, peptides, vitamins, and botanical extracts, this anti-wrinkle mask not only smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, it also calms the skin from environmental stresses to rejuvenate it back to a youthful glow. Formulated with a patented delivery technology, P.E.T.® ingredients are able to penetrate the outer layers of the skin to the deeper regenerative layers, allowing the full benefits of each ingredient to be achieved.
My thoughts: I received this box a few days after my birthday, and kind of chuckled when the mask's label specified that it was for "mature" skin. I may be another year older, but I don't think my skin is very mature, ha!  Anyways, I gave the mask a shot. It's one of the fabric ones, where the fabric has eye, nose, and mouth holes cut out, and the fabric mask is soaked in the solution. Through Glossybox, I've been able to test a few of these type of masks, and mature skin or not, this one was my hands-down favorite. My pores appeared smaller, my fine lines were visibly reduced, and my complexion just seemed brighter overall! 

This ultra-glossy, smoothing tinted lip salve hydrates, protects and soothes lips while imparting a sophisticated, natural ‘pop’ of colour. The "super soft beige" color was created exclusively for GLOSSYBOX subscribers. We have created an exquisite blend of oils to soften and nourish, including virgin coconut oil, jojoba oil, rosehip oil, castor oil and sweet almond oil. These oils provide the extra staying power for the salve, keeping your lips glossy and maintaining the colour. The colour tint is formulated with natural mineral make-up, designed to deliver strong colours, and is an exclusive blend of mica, titanium dioxide and iron oxide. The beautiful aroma of the salve is 100% pure natural essential oils, so it is subtle and sophisticated without being overpowering.
My thoughts: This was a great lip balm- it left my lips soft and moisturized, and I really liked the scent and flavor of the balm. I wish the color was a little less beige, but it looked great over some pink lipstick. 

A universal daily facial moisturizer that provides 24 hours of significant hydration. It is formulated with proprietary Super 7 Complex that is specifically designed to minimize and prevent visible signs of aging and boost radiance.
My thoughts: I've been really impressed by the other Fresh products I've tried, both from Glossybox and Sephora samples, so I was excited to spot this one in the box. This wins for my favorite item in the box this month! I've been using it mainly at night, and it's done wonders for my skin, leaving it looking brighter, less puffy, with a reduction in pore size and fine lines, by the time I wake up in the morning. I mean, what more can a girl ask for, right? 

BVLGARI | Eau Parfumée au thé vert
BVLGARI invites you to experience sensations of pure and immediate luxury in a unique ritual of hospitality. Eau Parfumée au thé vert, born from the rich culture of tea, a vital expression of refined elegance, awakens and refreshes the senses.
My thoughts: Glossybox has sent BVLGARI products in many of the boxes I've reviewed, and so far, I like this one best. It's nice and light and easy to wear. 

Tarte | Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara
Take your sultry, flashy lashes to the extreme with this amped up, ultra-black mascara that lengthens, curls and magnifies lashes for an intensified look proven to increase lash volume by 752% instantly! Powered by tarte’s proprietary triple black complex, this longwear, vitamin-infused formula emphasizes length and volume while conditioning lashes for a dramatic look that won’t dry out, flake or budge. The custom-engineered, dual-molded brush boosts even the skinniest lashes for an exaggerated, voluminous look. First, the shorter, denser side of the brush delivers the optimal amount of mascara to volumize and coat each lash perfectly, then the longer, firmer side of the brush lengthens and separates for maximum volume without clumping.
My thoughts: I've never seen mascara with such flashy packaging. The gold casing, seen in the above photo, isn't a box or sleeve- that's the actual mascara packaging. Kind of cool, right? Included with the mascara was this complex diagram, below, with a model of the mascara brush that's included with the product. You use one half the bristles to apply, and the longer, firmer side to separate lashes. It's a genius concept, but it was a little hard to tell once the mascara was on, which side was which, on the brush. All in all, it's a solid mascara, and you can't beat the packaging.
