Glossybox: October 2012 edition.

 I sort of forgot to review last month's box, whoops! Oh well, I figured I'd just move on and chat about this one, which is one of the best one's I've received to be honest :)

 All of the products for once are things I will definitely use, some I already have and others I am saving for when I go away and need to take smaller products. The 'theme' of this months box is DIY beauty, aimed at having pampering nights in and creating "the ultimate 'home spa' experience". Onto the contents:
  • Dermalogica 3 step day & night skincare kit. I am saving this for when I go away and need to pack light, plus I already have skincare products on the go and want to use them up first. I think this is a handy little kit, the products smell very fresh and lemony. There is a foaming cleanser, and toning spritz and a mattifying moisturiser. It would cost £12 originally so I think it's a great addition to this box. Looking forward to trying it out!
  • Anatomicals body scrub in grapefruit. I was thinking about purchasing the Soap & Glory body scrub a while ago, but it's pricey and I'm glad I waited as this came through the door. There are fine sand particles in this scrub, and they certainly give your skin a good buffing! The product smells lovely and fresh and really makes you feel clean- just clean out your bath/shower after using this as it looks like you've just got back from the seaside! A welcome addition to my shower and I think I'll be repurchasing it again, as the full size is only £3.49.
  • Skinetica anti-blemish solution. Again, anything that might help my skin I look forward to trying out. This is a clear treatment solution you apply every 12 hours to clean skin before moisturiser. It claims that you can see results within 2-3 days, I'll be using this for a week or until it runs out so I'll see how it goes. The ingredients list water and alcohol though, so we'll see. Retails for £6.99 for 100ml.
  • Yves Rocher moisturising lipstick in Mauve. Lovely lipstick, but it doesn't suit me :( If this was slightly more red, it would be perfect! I liked their mascara, so this was a nice product to get.
 So, Glossybox have surprised me this month, I like it all! The only little grump I have is that there were only 4 products, despite them advertising 5 per box. Oh well, they are useful products and I'm enjoying using them :) I also used my Glossydots for this box so it was free!
