October 2017 Glossybox Review
The October 2017 GLOSSYBOX is themed ‘Elements of Fall’ and filled with ‘feel-good treatments and fall-perfect finds to make chillier days a little more beautiful’. Here’s the full rundown on all 5 products this month (3 of which are full size!).
Clove + Hallow Lip Glaze – The second I put this on, I fell in love. It’s a bit thick and pigmented at first, but as it spreads and sheers out, it creates a beautiful stained lip look. It also feels very rich and hydrating thanks to ingredients like jojoba oil and shea butter, making it ideal for fall and winter. I received this in the shade “Spicy” with is a really pretty dark raspberry – perfect for fall, or all year round really! (Some subscribers will receive the shade “Angelic” instead, which looks to be a rosy nude.) The best part? This brand uses mainly clean, natural, and organic ingredients, plus they’re cruelty-free and vegan.
Rituals Shower Foam in Happy Buddha – Super cute name, even better scent. Happy Buddha features a mix of sweet orange (known for its mood-boosting and energizing effects) and cedar (known to stimulate the body and skin). Together they create a warm, yet bright and slightly spicy scent that makes me want to jump right into fall – warm turtleneck, pumpkin spice lattes, fireplaces, and all. I’m already thinking about picking up the body cream so I can smell like this for the rest of the year…
Lué by Jean Seo Erase – These cleansing and exfoliating powders seem to be a thing now…and I can see why. They make your face feel amazing soft, supple and smooth, especially when they’re formulated with oat-based powders, like this one. I’m also loving the minimal ingredients behind Erase in particular – all it contains is avena sativa (aka oat) kernel flour, nonfat dry milk, and magnesium carbonate, so it’s gentle on the skin, but also very effective at cleansing and removing dead skin cells.
Vasanti Cosmetics Eyeshadow Brush – I’ve never tried Vasanti makeup brushes before. They definitely remind me a lot of Morphe brushes, in that they have super soft bristles that really grab onto powders, and the brush as a whole feels solid and well-made. This eyeshadow brush in particular is perfectly designed for packing shadow on the lid to build intensity. Plus it’s cruelty-free and vegan (made with synthetic fibre).
Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Featherlight Styling Cream – Finally, we have a hair product that’s meant to keep those frizzies at bay during the rainy and humid fall weather. Straight from the tube, this stuff smells amazing. Plus the formula is very lightweight and non-greasy, and doesn’t weigh down my hair. It says it’s for curls on the tube, but I think all hair types can benefit from this. (Other boxes may include a perfume rollerball instead of this item.)
Overall, I’m really enjoying all the products in this month’s box. They all fit the fall theme – from the gentle, non-drying facial cleansing powder, to the lightweight hair styling cream for smooth, polished locks. Box favorites for me include 1) Ritual’s Shower Foam in Happy Buddha (love the warm and slightly spicy fall-like scent!), and 2) the Clove + Hallow Lip Glaze (so happy to have discovered a new clean beauty brand!).
