Birchbox & Glossybox USA: October 2012

Received both boxes last week. Guess what's missing? My ipsy bag. Apparently, USPS lost my package again. Grrr! Now, I have to wait for probably a week to get a replacement. Anywho, I also unsubscribed from Birchbox. I am more happier with the products that I'm getting from Glossybox. :)

Let's move on... ;)

What's inside this month's Birchbox?

sorry the colors are a bit washed out..was in a hurry.. >.<
1. Luna | Lemonzest
~ These zesty snacks are a goop fave. They're perfect for keeping you full in between meals (plus they can double as a healthy dessert!) Pack of 15, $18.75

2. Karuna | Hydrating Treatment Masks
~Get on board with the sheet mask trend. This-at-home fave contains Japanese natto (soybean) to boost skin's mositure levels. 4 masks, $28

3. Embryolisse | Lait-Creme Concentre - 24 Hour Miracle Cream
~A favorite of models and makeup artists, this cult French lotion heals dryness. Bonus: it also works as a primer and make up remover. Full size, $16

4. Lulu Organics | Lavender + Clary Sage Hair Powder
~Laced with organic lavender and sage, this sweet-smelling dry shampoo revives flat or second day hair. Full size, $30

5. Naked Princess | Naked Shine Luscious Lip Gloss
~ Show off your (nearly) bare lips with this sheer gloss, which doubles as a subtle plumper. Full size, $26

This month's Birchbox is so-so for me.. I am just glad that they didn't give me another hair tie. LOL


What's inside this month's Glossybox?

This month's theme: SPA LUXE 2012

1. Carol's Daughter | Shea Souffle (sample - 4oz (half of the full size))
~ A superbly rich and fast absorbing daily moisturizer containing Shea butter, Cocoa butter and Jojoba oil to help you reach your skin's optimal softness. This shea souffle is non-greasy and free of parabens, mineral oil and artificial colors. Full size, $20/ 8 oz
Look how creamy it is! I'm in love with this moisturizer. I usually apply it on my elbows and feet. :D

 2. Alterna Bamboo | Luminous Shine Mist (sample-0.85 oz)

  1. I unsubscribed from Glossybox as i kept getting useless things that weren't suited to me at all! The usa version seems so much better though! the soap looks good! i like anything pink though ha! xx

  2. the glossybox items looks nice! As for the Birchbox, I don't really like the idea that they put on foods on the boxes T__T~

  3. I like the sound of the mist - I'm such a sucker for anything that spritzes! Lol :) I'd love to know your thoughts on the Embryolisse, especially since I'm a bit on the fence about it.

  4. i love your blog x
