Glossybox generously sent me another box for review this month! If you missed my last Glossybox review post, Glossybox sends 5 deluxe travel sized items to you once a month for a subscription cost of $21 a month. The samples Glossybox sends are technically travel sized, but I've been really impressed with how large the samples are! Read on to find out what I thought of the products inside of this month's box, click here to see past Glossybox reviews on Best of BKLYN.
Oxygenating Cream moisturizes, protects and softens: this universal cream meets, in a single product, the essential needs of hydration for all skin types. Its special composition based on high-quality plant extracts and organic vegetable oils, such as Rosehip oil and Sweet Almond oil, helps ideally balance the skin’s hydrolipidic film. Rapidly absorbed after application, it provides a makeup base for prolonged wear.
My thoughts: When I applied the lotion, my first thought was that it seemed way too thick and heavy to be a facial cream. After checking the Glossybox site and seeing that it was supposed to absorb rapidly, I went ahead and slathered it on. I was shocked a few minutes later when I was left with residue-free, but very soft, skin. The downside to this cream, in my opinion, is the lack of sunscreen in it, so I have just been using it at night.
PUNKER eyeliner is easier to use than traditional liquid liners and offers endless possibilities of application. Its oversized felt tip applicator tapers to a precise point for maximum versatility. The short and thick “maker pen” design allows for optimum control during application. The high performance formula glides on smooth and quick-dries to a long lasting finish.
My thoughts: I was super excited to try this one out, since I'm still not a pro at applying liquid liner. While the felt tip of the liner reminded me of a sharpie pen and made application a breeze, I had an allergic reaction to the liner about fifteen minutes post-application. I was really bummed about the reaction, because the liner made it easy to create the perfect cat-eye.
Nails inc nail polishes are professionally formulated for a long lasting, ultra glossy finish. Victoria is a top selling shade that will go with any outfit, day or night.
My thoughts: I'm a fan of dark, vampy nails throughout the winter months, and this shade is the perfect deep burgundy.
This vitalizing body cleanser makes every shower a flower-power experience. The natural healing properties of rose and jasmine leave you feeling as fresh and fragrant as a flower.
My thoughts: A great body wash with a light, floral scent. I loved the bright colors of the packaging, and the fact that the sample was super-sized!
This mask smells so much like fresh pumpkin you will think it's Thanksgiving. And exfoliant lovers will give Thanks! That tingle is the pumpkin enzyme combining with glycolic acid to go to town on your skin’s flaws dissolving impurities like dead skin and clogged pores. Adds brightness and radiance to the skin and significantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles after a single use. If you thought that masks were only for mature skin types…think again! The key to clearer skin is to unclog pores, reduce bacteria and nourish, tone and heal on and below the skin’s surface. Today’s masks from MICHAEL TODD true organics do all that transforming dull, lackluster skin into clearer irresistible complexions.
My thoughts: This mask certainly lived up to its name, and the pumpkin scent was pretty strong! Once I got past the initial scent, the mask really did brighten my skin and clear my pores, which was worth smelling like pumpkin pie for a few minutes.
