Glossybox Canada June 2012

Well, it's been a while since I've done anything. I recently started a new, full time job and have been tired/exhausted when I get home.

I did get my June Glossybox last night though and here's what was inside:

BIORÉ Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser + Deep Cleansing Pore Strip
I havent really ever tried out Bioré's products before, so I'm glad that I finally can with this full sized bottle! I am also glad that it's for combination skin, because that's what I have. I can't start waiting to use this. This product retails for $9.99CAD. As for the pore strips, it's a pretty famous product of Bioré, again, which I have yet to try. I have tried other pore strips, but not this one. A box of 8 strips retail for $9.99 as well.

NEUTROGENA Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Lotion SPF 55
I will start off by saying that I love Neutrogena's sun care products! I have tried this sunscreen before and I even own a full size bottle of SPF 110! Yes, you read that right! Regardless though, 55 is still a fantastic SPF content to have, especially for someone as fair-skinned as I. I'm not a huge fan of the smell, but after the lotion dries on your skin, it doesnt leave any oily or greasy residue! It has such a nice satin, soft feel to it that you don't even feel like you're wearing it! I'm absolutely pleased with this sample and I like that I can have a small size to keep somewhere with me when I forget my full-size one. Full size retails for $15.99.

Another full sized product! And it has a very interested concept to it. Basically it's a styling tool that gives you a "carefree beach hair look" —basically wavy hair. All you have to do is spray it in your hair while dry, twist your hair into a low ponytail and then wrap into a bun, use a diffuser, set to cool and undo and voila! Sounds cool. I don't have a diffuser though, so I may have to figure out something else with the hair dryer. Full size retails for $16.99

OLAY REGENERIST Wrinkle Revolution Complex
I have already received THREE of these samples this month! All from different places, but I think it's hilarious. I just assume it's because P&G give out the same sample(s) to all the sample services haha. Anyways, I may try this out because I have already given one of my samples to my mom who is a huge OLAY fan. I believe you can use this under your primer/foundation because it fills in your wrinkles and what not. Full size retails for $30.99 for 50mL.

COVER GIRL Flipstick - Blendable Lip Duo
I've actually always been curious about this line from CG, but I was extremely disappointed with my shade, Minx. This color is no way flattering to me as it would be on others. I would have liked to try nicer reds/oranges or purple/pinks. Ah well. Full size retails for $12.50.

I can never have too many razors! I always LOVE getting them in these sample services. It's funny because yesterday when I was downtown, they were giving them away at the train station, but I didn't pick one up. Now I don't have to! I have tried this razor previously and it's excellent! 5 blades are really wonderful to have. This full size product retails for $13.43 and you can even purchase the blade cartridges too.

Overall I'm quite satisfied. I am LOVING this service! Glossybox does a very good job in selecting their samples and delivers! I just hate the people on Facebook who are impatient and claim that the service sucks because they end up getting the box at the end of the month. Calm down! It's worth the wait.

If you are interested in purchasing a Glossybox Canada subscription for $15 a month, you may do so by clicking HERE.



  1. i think pretty much everyone so far got that weird brown lip shade.. lol i dont know what they were thinking on that one!

    1. Oh wow, seriously?? They probably figured no one would buy it/no one was buying it, so they gave it away for samples. hah!

  2. I got the Brown/Copper colour too....I think they were trying to get rid of their unsold stock!

    1. That's what it sounds like to me :(

  3. I didn't actually received the minx shade for the CG lipstick, I received a pinker shade called whisper. I also got a different Biore product; warming anti-blackhead cream cleaner.

    Seems like a lot of people got similar boxes, haven't seen anyone with a box like mine yet haha

  4. Got the same box! haha Glossybox is easily creeping up towards my favourite beauty box service. They actually deliver what people expect, I've never been so easily satisfied with a service before. Though I wish they were as interactive as the Loose Button people. I love the special events and such that LB offers their subscribers. Which is why I'm only subscribed to these two. :)

    1. Yea I definitely have GB up there as the best subscription service. I've seen a few people complain about it though (then again, when is there ever an instance where no one complains? :P) They were all whining about how GB is supposed to offer "luxury" samples, but they keep getting things that they could easily find at Shoppers. I dont mind really, it's all very much worth it :3

      I have to agree about that too! However though, GB is still very new, so maybe they may expand a bit more.
