The October 2014 Glossybox is beautifully presented in an Andy Warhol inspired Pop Art box that is quite possibly my favourite design to date, and will definitely be finding a beauty-related storage usage soon. Thankfully, the contents of Glossybox October 2014 is a great selection of products that I think most people will be happy with; all are relatively decent sized with a few full-sized goodies thrown in for good measure.
The Glossybox October 2014 contents are a good mix with products from all the main beauty elements included, such as a couple of skincare goodies, a nail polish and a mascara as well as a base product and a decent-sized perfume sample. As usual, here’s a look at the contents in order of my favourites:
I have a soft spot for Nuxe and I’m always, always happy to try new masks, so the inclusion of a decent sized (50ml) Nuxe Creme Fraiche 24hr Moisturising Mask is something I’m definitely looking forward to including in my next triple threat facial. This is a very well-received product and it works on both the face and under eyes, so count me in! The include sample is worth £19.50.
Next up is the second of the skincare products – having a bit of a skincare moment currently – which is the etre belle Liplift Peel. As a beauty blogger, there’s very little I don’t have many, many duplicates of in my collection, so a product like this – a lip exfoliator – excites me as it’s pampering, can slot in happily during a facial and I don’t have loads of other similar products. Included is a full-sized product worth £12.95.
Many will no doubt be excited by the inclusion of a full-sized Ciate Paint Pot. The shade I have is Talent Scout which is a deep yet vivid purple that my annoying camera has picked up as more of a navy blue. This is a fab autumnal shade for both fingers and toes, and the fact that it’s full-sized is great – worth £9.
The Rimmel BB Matte mini is a nice little addition that’ll give subscribers a chance to try this high street product before deciding whether to invest in the full-sized product. It’s a good size sample, with enough in there for a good few applications and the shade I got was Light. Full-sized this would cost £6.99.
If you’re going to include a perfume sample in a beauty box then here is how to do it; this sample of Yves Rocher Quelques Notes D’Amour is gorgeously presented in a very pretty, mini perfume sampler that adds enough glamour to stop you feeling like you’re being conned with a perfume sample. It’s a lovely perfume in a lovely bottle, so you can’t complain really. Full-sized this is £33.
Last but not least we have the So Susan Flutter Mascara which is last in my list, purely because I’m still a little bit ‘meh’ about new mascara launches, especially as I keep turning back to my awesome Tarte one. I will happily give this a go and if it blows my mind, you’ll be the first to know! This is full-sized and worth £14.95.
Stonking value in the October 2014 Glossybox with several full-sized products and some great samples, all housed in a beautiful box that will get reused, so a pretty impressive box all-round! For more info on Glossybox, head here – link.
