October 2012 GlossyBox Swatches, Photos, Review & GIVEAWAY!

We’re a little late for October, but with all of the weather mess going on and shipments getting delayed… what can you do? And, to make up for it, there is a giveaway at the end of the post. WOOOOO!

The October 2012 GLOSSYBOX is titled Spa Luxe. Which is needed in my home right now because it’s COLD OUTSIDE and I don’t want to leave my house for pampering.

Currently available in 19 countries, GlossyBox has become known for their high quality samples and prestigious brands such as NARS, Lancome, Laura Mercier, and more.

So, what is in the October 2012 GLOSSYBOX? Let’s check it out!

The first product this month is from Alessandro – the Pedix Heel Rescue Balm. This product is nice, thick and soothing when applied all over my feet (even though it says heel it’s not JUST for heels). It smells of peppermint and feels cool.

Next is the Alterna Bamboo Luminous Shine Mist. Who doesn’t love a product that will make their hair shine? I like the feel of it, but the scent isn’t very girlie. I swear I smell pine musk… which makes me think of a guy.

Third is the Carol’s Daughter Shea Souffle. I am a new found fan of Carol’s Daughter, so I was REALLY excited to see this product in this months GlossyBox. Shea Souffle is extremely rich but absorbs quickly. And it smells like almond cookies. This is the product you need to combat dry, winter skin!

From Heartland Fragrances we have an Exfoliating Loofa Soap. I don’t know if this was the intent, but there is a scary face on the side and with a flavor name like Blood Orange it’s extremely appropriate for October! And it smells and feels great, which is obviously a huge plus!

Finally, from ModelCo, a Lip Duo of Dusk Lipstick & Striptease Ultra Shine Lip Gloss. I love that this shade is perfect for Fall and both the Lipstick and gloss were creamy and not sticky. A little mirror is included on the side to check application. My only beef with this product is that the lipstick and the wand are attached to the part with the mirror. Meaning, you have to apply the products blind and then check your results after. I would much rather be able to use the mirror WHILE I’m applying!

Overall, this months GlossyBox was pretty good. I haven’t heard of a few of the brands, but they are all intriguing items that I’m happy to try out. Some I’ve clearly already fallen in love with!

WIth GlossyBox you get a bit of everything, makeup, skin care, hair care… I love that this subscription box is sure to cover all of the bases.

The brands for October are interesting and you’re definitely getting your money’s worth. GlossyBox is still a go for next month!

GLOSSYBOX is a subscription service. You sign up on the website and then from there you can order your subscription based on one month, six months, or a year. You’ll answer a series of questions and based off of that, you will receive a customized box. This is all pretty standard for a beauty subscription service.

The price is a bit higher than that of other services you may have heard of or belong to. At $21 I would expect double the awesomeness of what I’d receive from, say, Birchbox.

GLOSSYBOX will always offer a MINIMUM of five products. After receiving your box, you can fill out more surveys in order to rate the products you received so they can better tailor your next package. So, basically, after a few months of the service, your packages should be PERFECT.

**TIP – Make sure you review the products received in your GLOSSYBOX to receive 20 GLOSSYDots per review. You can use these toward your own free box!**
