Glossybox November 2012 - Review

I think Glossybox have won battle of the beauty box this month, well in my opinion anyway.
I don't want to drag this post out as there is only so much you can really say about sample boxes
so I'll just get straight on with things and quickly share my views on what was inside.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant - I'm in too minds on wither I will use this or not, my skin is finally behaving and has never been clearer in my life so I don't really want to experiment with new products.
However that being said I do enjoy Dermalogica products and have an itch just to begin using it,
what I think I will do is wait for reviews to crop up and see how others get on before I rush in.

Olay 3 Point Treatment Cream - This is aimed at mature skin types and products of such nature do nothing for my skin so I passed it on to my Grandmother.

Allison Clarke Mango Body Butter - I have to say that this is my favourite product from this months box, not only does it smell divine but the texture is amazing - thick yet instantly absorbs into the skin.
I do think I will have to investigate this brand a little more!

Wei Age Control Serum - This is a really light almost watery serum, on the skin it feels refreshing
and despite being anti-ageing I really enjoyed it.

Nails Inc in Notting Hill Gate - I do adore Nails Inc polishes and have a special place in my heart for the mini's, they are just so dinky it is hard not to fall for them isn't it?
Notting Hill Gate is a beautiful almost neon pink and will be great for next summer.

Did you get this month's Glossybox* and if you did you enjoy it?

  2. This months box seems like quite a good one, the body butter sounds lovely!x

  3. What a beautiful box. My box just got dispatched today yayy :). Id be abit peeved about the Olay as im only 20, but iv always got my mum to give it to and im sure she'd be greatful. So no big tragedy. Enjoy your goodies lovely!

  4. I got the same but not the olay cream i got the burberry body sample! I really liked this months!:)

  5. The Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is amazing! We got it in the Dutch glossybox earlier this year. I don't see how it could do anything bad to your skin, it's so soft!

    1. Thank you for the heads up :) if it's gentle then I must give it a go!

  6. I got the dermalogica daily microfoliant in mine too and I've been using it for a couple of days. I really like it! it's very gentle on the skin and leaves it baby soft. I think I might buy the full size when I'm done with this x

  7. I really liked my Glossybox this month too! x

  8. That looks like a great box.

  9. The nails inc looks like a great colour! I want to try glossybox, but I'm always scared I'll hate the contents and it will be a waste of money :(


  10. Received mine today! I've got a different nail polish, looking forward to try it out though.

  11. Love what you got, although the nail shade is a bit strange for this time of yearI'd of though a deep shade like dark red or blue would have been better? or even a glitter polish

  12. I used to use the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant when I did Beauty Therapy at college, its amazing and all my clients loved it, give it a go :) I wish I had my own after seeing this post!xxx

  13. i wish i got notting hill gate! i got the cavier top coat :(

  14. I'm also luvin the body butter too!
    I almost got the same box as you.. had the nail inc top coat instead of your neon pink shade. I'm quite happy with my box. only things was is that I was a bit let down that I got the olay cream since I got that in my last month's box >.<

  15. Please try the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, I used to use it but hadn't repurchased as its quite expensive so I was so happy to get it in my Glossybox! The Nails Inc varnish is a lovely colour but I am a slave to Essie and OPI so may give this to one of my friends. Only thing I was disappointed in was the body butter - I'm afraid I didn't like the smell :-(

  16. The Microfoliant is great! I use it regularly and I have really reactive skin but it's never once caused me problems :( xoxo

  17. I loved the Microfoliant!!

    I linked you in my own Glossybox review, see here:

  18. The Mango Body Butter is AMAZE. Its part of my everyday routine now. I love Glossybox!
