November Glossybox

Normally I’m always excited to open up my monthly Glossybox (rather giddily, I must say)- this month was no exception.  But did I love it? Click on to find out!

I was pleasantly surprised at the skincare offerings this month. I like the idea of the Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng cream, but the sample size is just so tiny. Can’t wait to try it though. The makeup brush from Nicka K, a brand I’ve never heard of, was surprisingly soft and lush. Great for blending. The hair offerings, a color-protecting leave-in treatment from Mastey, and a sulfate-free facial cleanser with jojoba microbeads and alpha/beta hydroxy acids (my favorite!) are two I cannot wait to try.

Perhaps the biggest disappointment (other than the lack of a decent, deluxe sized makeup/skincare item) was the eyeshadow from Emite Makeup. Black shadow, in cheap plastic packaging, promised to be “highly pigmented” but came off as patchy and disgusting in swatches. Perhaps December’s box will be better?

Did anyone get something different in their glossybox, or did you feel the same way about this month’s offering?

    I did not care for the brush and I totally agree with the eyeshadow comment. I could forgo the packaging, but the shadow was a mess.

    Too bad about the eye shadow…you can never go wrong with basic black. Bleh.

      Yes, and sadly they even managed to mess up basic black!

    I haven’t opened mine yet – now I’m dying to know what I got! That’s too bad about the shadow. I hope I didn’t get it! The leave-in treatment and brush sound good though!

    I tried GlossyBox for three months and I didn’t feel like they sent me products that I was even interested in using. Plus the way they ship is so weird…one of my boxes took 3 weeks from the date it shipped to get to me. Not worth it for the price, in my opinion.

    I was totally disappointed this month too – the brush was the only decent item. Glossy box is hit or miss. I have been getting it for almost a year and have almost quit several times….

    I’ve always thought the sound of Glossy Box is great, but when I see what people get I’m never that impressed. I still prefer Ipsy. One things for sure, it’s way better than Birch Box! haha
