Well, this morning at 6:30 a.m. My lovely postman rang the door to hand me the November Glossybox.
I was very much hoping for an improvement, with Christmas coming and all, but no. Actually, I think this is the most depressing box ever.
It’s a face wash by Origins. It’s a try-out size (30ml) but it is so tiny, I will be able to try it out maybe 10 times, so I can’t tell if my skin likes it or not. Also, the additional prize for 150ml is 20€!!! (Origins) Fail.
Then we have shampoo and conditioner. Original size would be 250ml each, for 17,60€. That is a bit more expensive than my beloved Tony&guy shampoo and conditioner, but if it’s a great shampoo and conditioner, I’d be willing to splash the cash.
It gets a bit better with this IsaDora lip gloss, but not much. I like the brand IsaDora, that you know (especially their nail polishes!!!!), but why did Glossybox opt for a mini size lipgloss? I put it in my bag to try to find it again, but it is just too tiny. It is a bit shorter than my thumb, including the applicator.. The color is, although it looks a bit stale, very appealing and should fit a vast majority of the female population of Austria.
Lastly, the blush. It’s a blush by Kryolan, which comes in a Glossybox packaging. I’m not fond of the packaging, it looks cheap, uninspiring and plain, but I like the blush. It is matte, without shimmer and a cold pink color, which I like. It’s also not too intensive, so I can mix it with other blushes.
Well, additional to all that, I found a minus 10% voucher for Douglas in my box and little cards to attach to presents. I must say, this month I am especially happy that Glossybox sent me the box for free (and without conditions), because I would have hated to have blown my money on something that worthless.
Please Glossybox, think about your concept. Small samples are not what you said Glossybox would be about.
The products in this post were provided to me for my honest review.
