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.

The Love Box

This months theme is all about love! The box was put together for valentines day, but i did not receive it until it was already March. It looks like a great box at first glance though.

20170306_103507


♥ Jeanne Arthes – L’Eau De Rose Perfume

20170306_103917

This is a full sized bottle of perfume that every subscriber received. It was already my least favorite thing to find, mainly because I’m allergic to perfume, and I cant really handle anything rose scented, it’s just too strong for my nose. So I will definitely pass this on to someone else.

This is a full sized item and it is worth 240 NOK / ~$28


♥ Palmolive – Feel Glamorous Deodorant

20170306_104024

This is a raspberry scented antiperspirant and it smells amazing! I have already tested it and it works super well and keeps me smelling fresh for a really long time. The only thing i do not like is that it contains Aluminium.

This is a full sized item and it is worth 37 NOK /  ~$4


♥ Pick and Pinch – Eye Lash Curler Rose Copper

20170306_104134

This is supposedly an ergonomic lash curler that is supposed to fit any eye shape and will keep your lashes curled all day. It is absolutely beautiful and it came with a bag to keep it in, and three extra silicone thingies for you to use.

This is a full sized item and it is worth 250 NOK / ~$29.50


♥ Mudmasky – Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask

20170306_104208

This is a mud mas that will supposedly brighten, detoxify, moisturize and do all sorts of good things to your skin! A lot of masks claim to do the same, so i hope that its results will match the price. I’m really excited to try it out! Hopefully it won’t disagree with my skin.

This is a travel size (20 ml) and it is worth 220 NOK / ~$26. The full sized product (60 ml) is worth 660 NOK / ~$78.


♥ FRED HAMELTEN – High Brow

20170306_104254

This is a brow highlighter, which means it has been especially made to highlight under your brows, especially at the high point. I haven’t really used any highlight on my brows before so it will be interesting to test this one out! Hopefully it will be as pretty as i hope.

This is a full sized product and it is worth 249 NOK / ~$29.


After seeing all of the products and the value. i must say I’m very impressed! The subscription itself costs 179 NOK / ~$21, and after adding up all of the values we hit a whopping 995 NOK / ~$117. I’m really impressed, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the next month will bring!

What is on my vanity?

December 26, 2016 — 4 Comments

I usually love reading posts like these, so i decided to do one of my own! The upper and lower and so on is the parts of my vanity! 

20161221_112319

Lower right side:

Lush Coconut Deodorant powder, Sanex 7-in-1 deodorant, Garnier Moisture +, Cotton swabs and Victoria’s Secret Vanilla Lace body mist. I’m sort of allergic and sensitive to perfume, but body mists work.

20161221_112459

Lower left side:

One container with hair and face sprays, including a Sunsilk conditioner spray, a make up setting spray, Batiste dry shampoo that smells like cherries and the Tea tree toner water from Lush. Lastly it contains my hairbrush, a pair of scissors and a comb.

The other container contains my Maybelline NUDES palettes (Normal nudes, blushed nudes and rock nudes), my foundation powders and assorted face masks.

20161221_112513

Lower middle:

Here comes the messy part! In the back i have all of my pencils (both eyeliners and eyebrow pencils), eyebrow razors, my bb cream, a lip tint and two nail polishes. The large left compartment holds my single eye shadows, blotting papers, Lush Jackie Oates foundation, a fluffy brush for my powders, a pencil sharpener and a sponge i use to dab on my foundation/bb cream with. The small compartments on the right holds lipsticks, a cream to help against infections in wounds (i have no idea why its there…), eyebrow pomade crayon, a small mascara, lip balm, a sample for a brightening serum, tweezers, a nail clipper and Lush eyes bright mascara.

Upper left:

Lush fireside soap, two bottles of Silky underwear, t for toes, fairy dust and mr sandman dusting powders. A nail clipping set, vanillary solid perfume, sweet lips scrub, sympathy for the skin body lotion and another tub of Jackie Oates.

20161221_112635

Upper right:

Cotton wool pads, a foot lotion, a pretty jar with Fairy dust dusting powder (the bottle cap broke so i found an alternative container), a body lotion and a Skinfood rice mask that i have yet to try.

So that’s what i have on my vanity as of right now! Have you done a post like this before? Feel free to leave a link below, i would love to see it.

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.

20160802_095723

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.

20160802_095926

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

20160802_100108

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

20160802_100128

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

Φ

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.
