glossybox [february]...

this month's glossybox was their birthday box and after the last few months, i was hoping i would be blown out of the water. i was not, but it was a definite improvement. there's only 1 thing in the box that i won't use, and we even got something that can be considered 'luxury', which is what they promise anyways, yet fail to deliver most months.
 the black and pink birthday box; different from the usual pale pink.

 the goods.
 hair oil, body wash, pore strips, and lip gloss.
anti aging cream, eye shadow, cupcake liners, and hand cream.
so cute. and so much of it is true ;)



macadamia natural oil healing oil treatment - a 30ml bottle valued at $13.50. some have said that they think this smells like mens aftershave, i personally think it smells early/nutty and i'm kind of in love with that. i used it this morning and it left my hair incredibly soft and shiny. also, this came at a perfect time, since i usually use moroccan oil, but ran out a little while ago.
anatomicals body cleanser - full size, valued at $3. a little bit of a grandma-ish smell with the roses, but i don't mind it.
biore deep cleansing pore strips - full size (6 pack) valued at $9.99. i have these and use them often enough. not a deluxe beauty sample, but at least it won't go to waste. 
givenchy gloss interdit in coral frenzy - sample size, full size valued at $30. i would venture to say this is a universally flattering color; a peachy neutral. i find it a little sticky and grainy, though. 
essence quattro eyeshadow - full size, valued at $3.99. it's not likely i'll use this shadow pack since it's green.  definitely not a color i want to wear. i don't imagine many people do.
bonus items:
eucerin hyal-urea anti-wrinkle day/night cream sachet duo - with only one use per day and night, it's hard to say much, but i really liked the way they went on and left my face feeling really soft.
glossybox cupcake kit - special edition for glossybox. cute little extra something. what else can i say?
crabtree & evelyn tarocco orange, eucalyptus & sage ultra moisturizing hand therapy cream - sample satchet. while i like the scent of it, it just does not keep my hands moisturized. i put it on, and maybe an hour did dishes and liked that i could still smell it after that, but then shortly after, i noticed my hands were dry again. i used it again later in the night and within the hour, my hands were dry. not strong enough for dry canadian winters i suppose.

after the surveys for this box, i'll have enough points to cash them in and get my free box. whether i'll stay after that is still up for debate.

So the luxury product is...the Givenchy lipgloss? Fine, though not the best. But that eyeshadow, seriously.

I look forward to these every month and your decision on what's next ;)
