Hey Frugalista’s

It’s Glossybox Canada 1 year anniversary/ birthday! Woot Woot! Happy Birthday Glossybox! The theme was a celebration of their birthday. This month’s box varied from hair products, baking accessories, body products and cosmetics.


Givency Mini Lip Gloss- Coral Frenzy 
This 3.5ml Givency lip gloss smells sweet and delicious. It goes on as a light coral with shimmer. The value of this product is $15 and it is a mini lip gloss.


Anatamocials Body Cleanser- Full Size 
This shower gel is in the scent of roses, it is 150 ml bottle. The cool thing it is it’s from the UK. The value of this shower gel is $3.


Essence Quattro Eyeshadow-Full Size 
Essence is a well known low cost drug store brand. I love their lipsticks and liners. However, I have never tried their eye shadows; this item has 4 shadows in various hues of green and one taupe shade. I swatched them on my hand and it has good pigmentation however, the lime green shade is a bit chalky. The value of this eye shadow quad is $3.99.


Biore Pore Strips-Full Size 
Biore Pore Strips 6 count package removes black and white heads from your nose. We often get Biore products, I am not a fan of the strips. Some people received a Biore face scrub I would of loved that. Biore strips do work well and it retails for $9.99


Glossybox Customized Cup Cake Kit- Full Size 
This was a nice treat to celebrate Glossybox 1 year anniversary/ birthday. It was very cute and pink, which is my favorite color. I plan on using these in the near future. The Cupcake kit came with approximately 20 cupcake cups and toothpicks with the glossybox logo on top.


These are swatches of the eye shadows and Givenchy lip gloss. The first to the left is the Givenchy lip gloss swatch.


Macadamia Healing Treatment-Deluxe sample size

This product is my all time favorite hair product! I been using the Macadamia hair care line for months now and I love it. This is a 30ml bottle and retails for $13.50. I can go on all day about this oil first it smells amazing. Secondly, it makes your hair super soft and not greasy. Lastly,  its very nourishing and great for all hair types. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Glossy Box July 2012 Review


Hey Fruggies,

I know I’m late but I’m playing catch up with my Glossy box reviews I went on vacation and fell behind. So I have to start off by saying I was disappointed with this box. Seeing how good the previous two boxes were and then to get a box full of Walmart products was not impressive.




So this is the entire box of products for July and right when I seen Dove body wash I was like are you kidding me. I would of rather Bath & Body Works or Victoria’s Secret body wash, Dove is so blah and generic and not a luxury item. Its a drugstore/Walmart item, the positive is it was a full size


Dove softening creme body wash was full size 200ml bottle and retails for $5.99. It says you get visibly more beautiful smooth and soft skin in a week. I tried it and my opinion is it’s nothing special its very creamy and does not really lather. Its a typical shower cream.


Zoya nail polish full size product it retails for $8.00. When I seen the Zoya nail polish I was excited I love nail polish. I was familar with Zoya because the spa I go to only uses their polishes. Its a great brand and lasts long, the negative is I did not like the color I got it does not compliment my skin tone :(. However this was the best item in box.


Alessandro International pedix heel rescue balm deluxe sample size 30ml. The full size is 100ml and retails for $19.95. Therefore the sample size is worth about $6. This balm protects and nourishes your skin it has shea butter and tea tree oil.

Beautysoclean sanitizer wipes sample size (5 pads) value approximately $1.30. The full size comes with 48 wipes for $12.50. These wipes can be used to sanitize  lipstick, lip gloss, compacts etc. It removes debris, lint, food particles etc.I did not like this product reminds me of alcohol wipes.


John Frieda Frizz-Ease Strength Serum deluxe sample size 24ml approximate value $7.50. The full size is 50ml and retails for $14.99. This is a well known brand for curly hair products and can be found at any drugstore or Walmart. It transforms coarse,frizzy curly hair for a sleek, shiny and polished look. I have natural hair which is curly and I have not tried this as yet. I will try it soon and see if it smoothes out my frizz.


Eucerin Calming creme sample tube. The full size product retails for $12.00 for 200 grams. This product was actually missing from my box. I contacted Glossy box customer service and they wanted me to take pictures etc for a tiny sample so I said forget it. I did not get to try this sample so I have no opinion on it. However, there was a $2.00 off coupon included in the box and I love coupons 🙂


My overall impression of the July 2012 Glossy Box was unimpressive it consisted of drugstore/Walmart products with the exception of the Zoya polish. I must say the best product was the Zoya nail polish because its a great brand and used in spa’s and salons. Glossy Box has been fantastic the last 2 months I guess this is just one of those rare flops. I hope its better next month, but overall the value of $15 is still worth it. The total product value for this month’s box is $28,79. Which is still good because you could not get all these products for $15 in a store. I still recommend Glossy box to my frugalista’s it gives you a chance to try new beauty items and get a variety of things worth way more than what you pay ($15 a month). If your interested I have a 10% off your first box link your first box will be only $13.50 and you can cancel anytime.The code is  GLOSSY41 to get 10% off. Have a great day Frugalista’s 😀
