GLOSSYBOX November 2012 review.

As usual, my Glossybox arrived at the end of November.
Here are the products that I received for the Canadian edition of November 2012.
Do you think this box is worth the $21.00.......or should I unsubscribe???

Welcome letter!

Nov 2012 Canadian Glossybox!

Items in my Glossybox:

*Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor holiday shades. (All is Glam, All is Bright, full size 15ml, value $10.99).
OPI is a very good brand. I like that Glossybox also sent shades from the recent season. This is the perfect festive glitter polish! There is very fine red, silver and diamond like glitter. You only ne ed one coat to look nice with this one!

*Kryolan for Glossybox Blusher (shade Glossy Rosewood, size 2.5g, value $16.73/ full size............).
The blush I received is a very natural looking pink colour that is matte and has a very natural look.
It seems just as good as my MUFE blush. I will be using this product often!

Nexxus Salon Haircare: Hydration Kit. (Therappe Shampoo 89ml bottle, value $2.50/full size 400ml, $9.99//Humectress Conditioner 89ml bottle, value $3.75, full size 400ml, $14.99)
I've received this kit before in another beauty box (Topbox, summertime). Nexxus is a pretty good brand- but is now a drugstore/salon line. A few years ago you could only find Nexxus in expensive salons.
Now the basic items are in most drugstores. I think it might have to do with the company being bought by Alberto?? maybe....I'll have to look into this more.

*Vitabath Spa Skin Therapy: moisturizing bath and shower gelee. (sample size 6oz or 170g, value $6.00/full size 360ml, $9.99).
I have not tried Vitabath products in a couple years. The new design on my bottle is so pretty!
I'll have to report back on how the new shower gel works.
But I did notice Glossybox wrote the products are SULFATE FREE....and when I went to read the ingredients on my bottle it was written "SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE"..... I did not see any Parabens listed,so that is good.

*Maybeline MNY My Gloss. in colour 585. (full size product, 9ml, value $7.49).
This is not one of the Maybeline lip glosses from North America, but a European version that is made in France! The gloss is a nice sheer opal pink with very fine shimmer-I think this gloss would suit everyone.
There is also a nice kind of fruity scent to the gloss, it is a very light scent and not distracting at all.
I find it neat that Glossybox does send products that you can not always find locally,hopefully they will keep on doing that!

*Curel Hand &Cuticle Therapy Cream. (full size product, 100ml tube, value $3.99).
I am familiar with the Curel line, but have not seen this product in stores near me.
So far I have only seen the Curel foot cream and this hand cream sold on American websites online.
My hands are extremely dry during the winter- so any new hand products to try out are always welcome.
I will report back in a few days with how my hands are doing.
The Curel hand cream contains Ceramides, so I think it will be a very helpful product!

If you are in Canada, where did you find the Curel hand and feet products?

Product Info for Glossybox Nov 2012!

*There was also a Uber Beauty discount card with 50% all products. I've heard of the brand, but do not know anyone who stocks or sells it at their salon around here.
I'm not so sure I'll be placing an order, as I would like more ingredient info before purchasing.
Do you know anyone who has tried this line? I'd love to get people's thoughts on this.


  1. I'm not that interested in Glossybox because of all the drugstore products they put in. At least most of them are full-sized!

    I nominated you for the Liebster award!

  2. Thanks!
    That is very nice of you.
    I happen to like a mix of drugstore, high end and more natural handmade cosmetics-so Glossybox is still ok for me.
    But the price raise has me rethinking...I'll give it one more month and see then.
