GlossyBox October 2013 “The Byrdie Box”

2 Nov


This is my first Glossybox.  The price tag isn’t too bad at $22 and I like that skin products are incorporated.  I could always use moisturizers and primers.   This month’s box was a special collaboration with Brydie.


 I have to say it had my favorite packaging so far!  It was so classy and the box was durable and reusable, I legit feel guilty throwing it out… so I didn’t 😉


The first thing I noticed, besides this adorable ribbon, was the SMELL.  It was wonderful.


Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream  Sample Size Value $12.60)

Supposedly a little of this goes a long way.  I’m still young so I think my mom would appreciate this more.  She loves the idea of products, but never really goes after them.  Simple woman. Into her pile this goes.


Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara ($23)

This stuff is awesome!  The gold around it is actually the tube!!  The brush is harsher than usual but I love the movie star lashes I get. I have short lashes and I’m happy with both the volume and length I get from this.  This is top 3 mascaras  ever for me.


Sesha Renu Exfoliating Gel Sample Value: $16.80 / 20ml / .68oz

I was slightly disappointed by this because I wanted the rejuvenating anti-wrinkle mask since I’m going to be alone in a hotel all week I figured it would be fun to do some pampering.  I guess Glossybox decided a 24 year old didn’t need an anti-wrinkle mask and would prefer an exfoliate.  But hey, can’t complain. I do love my Apricot scrub so we’ll see how this lines up.  For the price- I hope I don’t fall in love lol.


Balance Me Shine on Tinted Lip Salve ($19.37) in Soft Beige

Doesn’t look like a $20 product but it comes all the way from Great Britain so who knows how they do things there. It’s also a custom color made just for these boxes.  But it’s going into my gift pile because I’m not a big gloss user..I much prefer lipstick!


Bvlgari Eau Parfumee Au The Blanc Soap ($9.96)

I found the culprit of the amazing smell. I don’t normally use bar soap but again, I will be traveling the next few weeks and this could come in handy.  I am much more excited about a bar of soap than I ever knew possible- you NEED to smell this. It’s better than a spa and makes me feel like life is beautiful….!

If you are interested in subscribing- don’t forget to use the code “BODY” for a free BODYOGRAPHY Every Finish Powder

I’m going to be honest with you- even with the $81 value I wasn’t too excited about this box.  But I can’t put my finger on why. I got an amazing mascara, and the face products I was counting on.  I’m going to give this subscription a few months… I don’t know how long term I plan on it being but I am definitely excited to see what they come up with next.


Which is apparently inspired by flowing hair, matte skin, and sultry smokey eye.
