GlossyBox October 2012 Breast Cancer month

So about two weeks ago Glossy Box announced that they were raising the price of they're monthly subscription from 15$ to 21$ like the US . A lot of people were very upset with the fact that some of the boxes have been sub par  and not up to what they expected the boxes would be. I myself was a bit concerned that they decided to raise the price without really giving us any bump in the service IE : more products,better quality, more Glossy dots with the surveys , or better shipping. They told the current members that the Oct box would remain at the price of 15$ for this month but next month would go up to the 21$ .This month there was an added bonus to celebrate the Birthday for Glossy Box (global Birthday for all glossy boxes not just Canada) They added Golden Tickets to 50 Random boxes that would include a 50$ goodie from Caroline Neron they turned out to be Earrings ....they aren't my style but are nice .

so here is  what I got in my box this month ..I must say it was a great box this month it was full of full sized products.

     Sebastian Pro Shampoo and Conditioner the full size Shampoo retails for 15.79 for 250 ml the Conditioner  retails for 16.59 for 250 ml these sizes were 50 ml.
I am not sure how these will be because I currently use product I know is good for my hair extensions but I will put away in my mini travel sizes stock pile....( I have a lot of minis )
                               The Venus and Olay razor  retails for 16.99 this is a full sized item!!!!!
                  I haven't tried this Venus razor yet but my legs are excited to test this baby out!!
ModelCO Flipstick Lip duo in Dusk Lipstick and Striptease Lip gloss.
This is a full sized item that retails for 38.75 it also said that this is a special for Glossy Members only!!!
at first Glance the Lipstick is super Dark but once it;s applied onto the skin it looks very nice and compliments the fair skin.The Gloss is a very light sheer pink and both of these items smell like Strawberries .  

Zoya Nail Polish in Emme
this is ANOTHER full sized item !! 
it retails for 8.00$ from the Zoya website 
I love how it's a sheer pearl pink colour and totally represents Breast Cancer .

Jouviance Rejuvenating Anti-Aging cream for combination to oily skin treatment.
this is a 5 ml sample size .
the full size retails for approx 93.50$
the texture is very nice its not oily at all and that is very nice because sometimes these creams can have alot in and cause me to break out.

All in all I will be sticking around for a few more months with Glossy because I think we can see  many more wonderful things to come from them .

  1. I really like the colour of Zoya polish you received. I got Lorette, which is super sheer, a bit of a bummer. :/ I'm in the process of trading it though, so yaya!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Ive actually had your blog bookmarked for awhile now! I will defintely use your promo code if I decide to sign back up. I really like your Zoya polish more than mine!

    1. Chelsey, Thank you for stopping by!!! It's too bad they didn't just give everyone the same nail polish I think it would have been a lot better....

  3. Hey Alexsandra , it sucks that some people including yourself received that colour (if you can even call it one due to it being so sheer) I think they should have realized it wasn't good colour to send my July box i got this horrid hospital green so I totally understand

    1. It's so sheer it just looks like topcoat. I was able to trade it with a girl in Ontario for Shelby I believe? It's a nice bright shimmery pink! <3 LOL @ hospital green!

      I'm currently using the sebastian shampoo and I like it! It's way better than the NuMe one I tested out last. :/

    2. i think it kind of sucked that some people got that very sheer almost nude colour.At least you were able to exchange it .

  4. hi - thanks for dropping by my blog :)
    i was a little scared of the dark color of the ModelCo lipstick but i've been wearing it everyday since! i love the smell of it too!

    1. Hey No Prob !! I love checking out other beauty Blogs!! i too have been wearing it since we got it , I think it's a colour that looks good on almost every skin tone.
