Review: October Glossybox

Review: October Glossybox

I have to say, I’m actually relatively impressed with this months Glossybox for a couple of reasons! One being that I was sent an item that I had already received previously and rang the customer services and was immediately sent two new items! Wooh extras! And secondly, every single item was a good sized sample and nothing was a product tester I could just pick up in my local Boots or similar. So what did I get? Dermalogica Clean Start System (which I have previously had), Anatomicals Body Scrub, Yves Rocher Anti-wrinkle Moisturiser and a lipstick, Green People Self Tan Lotion and Skinetica Anti-Blemish Liquid. As usual, I’ll give you all a little insight into my first impressions of this month’s products apart from the Clean Start which you can see here.

I fell in love with the Yves Rocher mascara in one of the previous boxes so I was really happy to be sent a few more bits by the brand. The Instant Anti Wrinkle Moisturiser seems to be really hydrating and sinks into the skin nicely. I haven’t seen any results wrinkle wise as I don’t have any! The only thing I’m surprised is that there isn’t an SPF in it which is a shame.

Another make-up product by Yves Rocher! The colour of this YR Lipstick in Framboise is gorgeous, I’m really loving bright reds at the moment with autumn coming around. I haven’t tested out the staying power of it yet but the formula itself is smooth and creamy on my lips, I’m looking forward to using it!

I’ve never heard of the brand Skinetica before but I was quite pleased to get this as I’ve recently had a few blemishes on my forehead and around my nose. After using it for a couple of days I can already see the difference. I’m not sure if this is down to me starting a more regular skin care routine but the Skinetica has definitely helped and I’m considering purchasing it.

I have loved Anatomicals since I was about 17 now! They have some lovely eye gels and lip balms so it was nice to get something from a brand I already love but for a product I haven’t used. It smells of pink grapefruit so is nice and refreshing for those morning showers and contains apricot seed for exfoliating. It reminds me a little of the Sanctuary body scrub so I am looking forward to trying this out in the morning!

Last but not least, the Green People Self Tan Lotion. Again, I haven’t really heard of this brand so it’s nice to try something new. I currently stand by Sienna X for tanning and I’m getting trained to give spray tans with my mum next month but it will be nice to try a different. The only thing I’m not keen on with this is that it has rose hip in it which I really can’t stand but I shall give it a go anyway!

So I hope you’ve enjoyed having a look at the goodies I’ve been sent by Glossybox this month. I must admit, I was considering stopping my subscription because I was getting really frustrated with the amount of samples rather than miniature products, keep the boxes like this and I shall be a happy customer! If you’re interested in getting one, head over to the GlossyBox site!
