October GlossyBox.

October’s GlossyBox marked 6 months since it’s launch & and because of that they wanted to make it extra special. I don’t think this box is super duper amazing but I do really like it & I prefer it to the September box. As always a pretty pink box is delivered by the postman & the black tissue paper and pink ribbon inside makes it feel like a little box of luxury.
The Robert Piguet perfume samples were not to my taste at all & honestly, I’m still not a fan of those little vials inside a piece of folded cardboard. I’m incredibly fussy with my fragrance choices though, so I image people more open to trying different scents would really like receiving something different like this. The Stila eyeliner, although a lovely product, was again not what I would have chosen for myself. I’m not the biggest eyeliner person so I probably don’t appreciate how lovely this is to receive in a box. The shade is called Moray which is a really unusual olive gold taupe colour. The Leighton Denny nail polish in the shade Sex Kitten is a really beautiful icy metallic blue that takes about 2 coats to achieve the colour in the bottle. It dries really quickly and doesn’t chip easily which I absolutely love. I had never tried a Leighton Denny polish until now and I have to say I’m really impressed.
The last three products are my absolute favourites & they’re the reason I’m so happy with this box. If you’re not really into skincare products then I can totally see why you wouldn’t be all that impressed. The Dermalogica multivitamin thermafoliant is brilliant even if the scent in the tube does remind me slightly of the dentist. It’s not overly abrasive but it does enough that I really notice a positive difference in the texture of my skin after. The Dermalogica multivitamin power recovery masque is another fabulous product that I’ve fallen a little bit in love with. This leaves my skin feeling nourished, hydrated and beautifully soft. I’m making the most of this little tube because the full size is eye wateringly expensive! The final Dermalogica is a super mini sample of the Renewal Lip Complex and this really reminds me of strawberry jam for some reason. It’s quite thick and a little bit sticky but this leaves my lips feeling absolutely amazing. Again the full size of this is pretty pricey but I’m currently debating whether to purchase one!

Overall I think this was a really lovely box if you’re quite interested in skincare & wanted to try some products from Dermalogica. The Stila eyeliner is a nice addition if you like wearing unusual liner shades & the Leighton Denny nail polish is a welcome addition to my collection.

Did you receive the October GlossyBox? What were your thoughts on it?


  1. I love the colour of your polish! Mine was completely wrong for me, but I guess that's all part of subscribing to Glossybox.
    Like you I loved the Dermalogica stuff, especially as I can't usually afford their products ♥

  2. I just found mine down at the concierge's office from a few weeks ago and can't wait to try the Dermalogica products. I got one free with a Topshop goody bag once and it was amazing, so high hopes for these.
    I have the pink nail polish, but glad to hear it's good! xx

  3. I've been thinking of subscribing to Glossy Box for a while - food for thought!

  4. this was my first ever glossybox and i wasnt too impressed :( i got the same nail polish as you, but i really dont like blue (especially icy blue) at all.. i would have loved the pink polish though! i wasnt too keen on the perfume samples either, but at least the dermalogica products are fab :) my lips have never been softer after using the lip treatment! mona xx

  5. I've never heard of Glossy Boxes before, but I checked out their site and it seems a pretty great deal for the price, so I've subscribed. I'm quite excited, you're introducing me to so many things (and encouraging me to spend too much money!!!)

  6. I wish I could get GlossyBox...stupid US...birchbox just isn't the same. That Leighton Denny polish looks fab!!


  7. I received my box and my review will be on my blog this evening..
    Like you im a big fun of the dermalogica, but like someone above i got through nail varnish in a blue type colour so was a bit put off by that,but liked my first gifts lots!
