Glossybox October 2012 review!

The October Glossybox usually shows up at the end of the month and in this case it was sometime in November.
I did not get around to writing up a review of this box as life got in the way.
Well, better to have a late review than to not post at all...
The theme of the October 2012 box was Breast Cancer Awareness and the cosmetic items had an overall "pink theme" meant to represent breast cancer.

Glossybox monthly info.


*Jouviance Rejuvenating Anti-Aging Cream (sample size 5ml tube, value $9.35/ full size 50ml, value $93.50).
I have not tried this cream yet. Interesting that it says you can use it for face and eyes?
Usually I can not use the same face products for my eye area and face. My eye area is too sensitive and I usually can only use fragrance free very "plain" eye products.
I'll have to see how this goes sometime....

*Modelco Flipstick Lip Duo (special Glossybox size, value $38.75).
This is a brand I have heard of before and wanted to try. Also this item is a "special Glossybox edition", as I did not see this exact item on Modelco's site or at Dermstore where they sell this brand.
I did find the gloss and lipstick separately though.
The idea of having the lipstick and gloss in one portable package is a neat idea- but I do not think it was well thought out. The mirror is in the middle cap and you can not use the mirror until AFTER  you use the product as it is stuck to the applicator part you need to apply the product.
The gloss is a nice light pink shade with some shimmer in it. There is also a nice kind of berry scent to the gloss and it is a very glossy non-sticky finish. Overall I do like this gloss and it did not bother my lips like some brands do. The shade I received was  STRIPTEASE!
The lipstick is a nice kind of neutral dark pink that looks more like a cream finish.
The colour for the lipstick is DUSK.
The lipstick did not have long staying powder, but did moisturize nicely. Maybe if I used a lipliner it might help..but I never seem to bother with those.

*ZOYA professional laquer in RORY! (full size 15ml, value $8.00).
Zoya is a brand that is only sold in salons and the quality is very good!
I'm quite pleased to receive polishes from this brand. The colour Rory is a dark pink, almost purple shade with some silver/grey shimmer in it. I do not own anything that looks like this colour and do not usually chose pink polish, so this is fun to use!
I plan to buy more Zoya products in the future!

*Sebastian Professional Trilliance Shampoo and Conditioner. (Shampoo 50ml, value $3.20/ full size 250ml $15.79// Conditioner 50ml, value $3.35, full size 250ml $16.59).Sebastian hair products is a brand I really like, but for some reason have never tried many of their shampoos and conditioners.
I buy a lot of their styling product though.
The Trilliance shampoo and conditioner is supposed to make your hair very shiny and smooth and Idid find that was true! My hair even though it is curly still had a nice natural looking shine and was much more manegeable too. I will most likely buy both the shampoo and conditioner once I run out!

GILLETTE VENUS & OLAY single razor (full size, value $14.99).
I am going by the value that this razor sells for on!
Haven't had the chance to try this razor yet,but will update once I do so.
