glossybox [november]...

i was quite excited to get a christmas themed box this month, and it didn't disappoint. lots of useful stuff, and even a candy cane tucked in there, too.

nexxus salon hair care:hydration kit - 400ml shampoo retails for $9.99 and the conditioner for $14.99, but we were given 89ml bottles, which are still pretty big for samples. haven't had a chance to try them yet, but they smell really good.
curel hand and cuticle therapy cream - we received a full size bottle, valued at $3.99. my nails are always super dry (i even use cuticle oil), so here's to hoping that daily use of this cream will help.
vitabath exfoliating sugar scrub - a 10oz bottle is $18, and we were given a 2.5oz sample, but it's pretty big, no? compare it to the size of the nail polish..anyways, it smells so nice and sweet with a hint of citrus. i tried a bit on my (dry winter) hands, and it left them nice and soft.
nicole by opi kardashian kolor holiday shades - full size, valued at $10.99, and the color i got was 'a gold winter's night'. ugh, i hate to admit it, since it's kardashian related, but i actually love this polish. put over any polish, it's so glittery with green and gold strips of glitter.
kryolan for glossybox blusher in glossy pink - exclusive to glossybox, and valued at $16.93. pretty pigmented for the little bit i put on, but the color is quite nice and similar to what i wear already.
maybelline mny my gloss (can't find it on their site) - full size, valued at $7.49. no color listed, but it's a nice shimmery pinkish, gold. not too sticky, and goes on nicely.

i'm hoping the december box will be good; i've been looking forward to that for months now! it would be a bonus if it actually got here before the new year.

Those sound great! I've always wanted to try glossybox, but I've never gotten around to it.

Okay, you're starting to sell me on these things. Do you recommend all girls take advantage of this, or what? I like what I see so far... Just need the extra push! :)

Candian boxes are always so much better than the American ones..... Gosh! (Not that I've received my Dec box yet, but historically speaking).

Rachel, the benefit to the Glossybox vs Birchbox or others is that the samples are actually several use/long term use sizes, depending on what you get. Also, the US boxes are a few dollars more expensive than the Canadian boxes..
