Notecard included gives a description about the products this month
This month's goodies!
Zoya Summer 2012 Beach and Surf Collection Nail Color in Meg
Burberry Beauty Lip Mist Natural Sheer Lipstick Copper #202
Lip Mist in Copper #202, 0.8 oz
Marvis Whitening toothpaste
This is new. I've been getting beauty subscription products for almost a year now, and I've never gotten a toothpaste before! This product hails from Italy, and this is full size at 1.23 oz, retailing for $7.50.
Mmm, minty paste!
Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Refreshing Hydra-gel
This sample is in some really unique packaging, but it's very small, 0.27 oz. A full size (1.7 oz) retails for $100, which is very pricey for face cream (in my opinion)! Nevertheless, the sample is worth over $15 because the product is so expensive. My skin tends to be on the dry side, so I'm looking forward to trying this out, but I have to admit that I almost don't want to like it since I cannot afford that price for a daily moisturizer... especially when I'm already in love with the equally expensive Babor argan cream that I got in my Beauty Army kit a couple months ago!
Last but not least...
Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Mask
I don't notice a strong fragrance... just clean. I'll be sure to update the blog after giving this a shot. I appreciate the large size of this sample. Too often, we get those little one-time use packets that don't really give enough product to try out and get an accurate "regular use" experience to judge.
Last up is the little bonus treat:
It's a goat hair blush brush. Now, if you follow my blog, you've read my issue with a powder brush that shed hairs - it annoyed the crap out of me (and has since been remedied with a replacement brush). That's probably my biggest pet peeve with makeup brushes, shedding. This one actually seems like it's shedding too. I haven't used it on my face, but I'm going to give it a shot for blush and bronze/contour. If it sheds, it's not really a big deal. But if it doesn't and it holds up well, this will be a nice addition to my makeup brush collection.
So, that's the first non-promo Glossybox for the United States. It's already popular in a bunch of other countries, and I think it'll catch on nicely here. It's the most expensive beauty subscription service that I've seen, but if you do the math here, it's worth far more than the cost. Let's hope it stays that way!
