Disclaimer; Norway’s Glossybox might differ a bit from, for example, the american ones. We are very particular about products and everything apparently needs to be made for Nordic hair and skin and whatnot. Luckily we get products to try that we don’t necessarily see in stores here all the time. I’ve heard about a couple of the brands, mainly from watching other Glossybox unboxing videos. I also pay for the boxes out of my own pocket, so this post is not sponsored in any way.
So in contrast to last months yellow box, this month’s box is a beautiful, pale pink with a black patterned inside. The paper is even a lighter shade of pink and there’s a beautiful black ribbon. I like to keep the ribbons to use them in my hair, i have them tied up somewhere.
Beneath the sheet of paper, we find the products laying on a bed of shredded, black paper. It looks pretty, and it allows for the products natural color to shine through.
The first product i got in my box is from Debruyere, and it is an after sun milk. It smells a bit tropical, a whole lot like coconut milk and it is meant to be used on dry or sunburned skin. I tried a bit on my hand and it made my skin soft and smooth. The scent was not overwhelming either and it sticks with you for quite some time.
This is a full size product (50ml/1.76oz) and it’s value is 110 NOK / ~$13.
Then there’s the Absolute New York velvet lippie. It is supposedly a buttery lip cream that will give you a matte finish. The shade i received is called toasted, and it smells a bit like cremê brulee, i like it! I haven’t tried it on my lips yet but i’m sure i will like that too.
This is a full size product (6gr) and it’s value is 69 NOK / ~$8.
This one is what excites me the most about this month’s box, it is from Rodial, and it is a smokey eye pen. It is one of those eye liners that look kind of plastic-y but really aren’t, and it is great for creating a smokey eye. On the packaging it says that it is very easy to blend, so we’ll see about that!
This is a full size product and it’s value is 250 NOK / ~$30
And then comes the only sample size in the box, a sample of Elizabeth Mott’s Sherbet Cleanser. It is a cleanser in a balm form and is supposed to be used on a dry face to remove make up and cleanse the skin, then rinse it off with warm water. I’m going to try to use this to remove the water proof mascara i received in the last box to see if it works for that.
The original product is 100 gr and valued at 250 NOK / ~30. The samle is 18gr / 0.63 oz
The last product is from Sanex, and it is a 7 in 1 protector. It is said to protect against pretty much anything, it is anti white stains, anti yellow stains, antiperspirant, anti irritation and it respects the skins PH value. It contains aluminum though, so i don’t know if i will use it all that much, but i will give it a try.
This is a full size product (50 ml/1.76oz) and it’s value is 28 NOK / ~$3
I’m very happy with this month’s box. The subscription costs 179 NOK / ~$21 per month and includes shipping and handling, and the eye liner alone already exceeded that amount by quite a bit, so it was very good value! The total value of the content, (not counting the one sample) is 457 NOK / ~$54.
