Glossybox (November 2015)

Glossybox is a monthly subscription that delivers beauty products - hair care, skin care, makeup, perfumes, tools, etc. to your door for $21 per month if you buy the monthly plan, but that price goes down if you buy a 3-, 6- or 12-month subscription.

Glossybox carries some of the best brands in beauty. Each box contains five items from full-sized to deluxe samples. Following are the contents of my November box:

FLORA-PY Floral Therapy Facial Sheet in Yarrow Lavender (0.8oz, $8.00) - Combining ultimate hydration and aromatherapy, each mask is soaked in powerful flower ingredients and essential oils. From anti-aging to detox, Flora-py creates an at-home spa experience for every skin-care need in under 20 minutes.

ESTEE LAUDER Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme (0.17oz, ~$8.50- Embracing the fall with youthful-looking skin is just a step away with Estee Lauder's cult-favorite daily moisturizer. Curb the first signs of aging, fine lines, fullness and dehydration with breakthrough IntuiGen Technology that helps reactivate skin's own revitalization.

I love a good face mask and Flora-py makes a GREAT face mask. I've used them before and they are some of the best. I'm not going to use the Estee Lauder creme because I have so many similar products, but obviously Estee Lauder makes incredible EVERYTHING. I'll be passing this on to someone else. 

BEAUTY FOR REAL D-Fine Perfect Lip Pencil (0.12oz, $14.00) - Looking for a way to naturally define the shape of your lips? The search is over! Beauty For Real has created a flesh-tone lip liner that enhances your lip size without a trace. Effortlessly paired with any shade of lipstick or gloss, you can finally say hello to that luscious pout you've been dreaming about.

MARSK Mineral Eyeshadow in You're Toast (0.04oz, ~$2.04) - Featuring a creamy texture and a golden, sand-swept tone, this highly pigmented eyeshadow blends seamlessly, allowing you to create endless eye looks. Flattering for every complexion, "You're Toast" warms up the face and brightens the eye area.

I can't wait to try the Beauty For Real lip liner. Unfortunately my lips are so super chapped. These Ohio Valley winters are cruel. The sides of my mouth break open no matter how much moisturizer, lip balm, or Neosporin I use. The Marsk shadow is not complimentary to my skin, so I'll also be passing that along.

CRABTREE & EVELYN La Source Ultra Moisturizing Hand Therapy (100g, $5.50) - Brimming with nourishing ingredients: macadamia nut oil, seaweed and algae extracts, and vitamin E, this intensive cream rejuvenates the skin in innumerable ways. Keep those beautiful hands healthy and hydrated without mineral oil, parabens or sulfates!

As amazing as this lotion absorbs and the silkiness it leaves on your skin... it is impossible to get past the smell. This is the granniest-smelling lotion I've used. Gave me quite the headache, honestly. 

This box had a total value of $38.04, which is not remarkable for a Glossybox, but definitely worth the $21 cover price. There was also a great variety of products, although there were no hair products. As usual, I'm looking forward to next month!
