October GlossyBox

So I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of my first GlossyBox which I ordered at the beginning of the month. If you have read my previous posts on this I was a little sceptical although excited to see what I would get. So heres how I got on. 

The box was nice, simple and elegant although a lot smaller than I thought it would be.

Inside was a smaller shoebox type box, again nice and good quality with the GlossyBox logo embossed on the top.

Nice introduction, also advises that they are doing a refer a friend programme so you can earn points towards future boxes.

The products packaging is stunning, simple but lovely. It is covered with tissue paper and sealed with a ribbon and GlossyBox sticker.

What I felt let it down was the products, whilst they are good products none the less, they are not things I would necessarily purchase, but I am always open to trying new things...

Whats included...

Dermalogica Age Smart Thermafoliant (full size - £40.50)
This an exfoliant although I think this is more for the mature woman :( but I will try!

Dermalogica Age Smart Recover Masque (Full Size £33)
Again I will try this although I am not sure this is particularly for my skin type

Leighton Denny Expert Nails (Full size £11.00)
This is a full size bottle and does look like a good polish the only fault I have is the colour...I may change my mind once tried though.

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner (Full Size £13.00)
Hmm I do have several pencil eyeliners 

Robert Piguet Eau De Parfums (Full Size £65.00)
I can't think of anything nice to say about these perfumes, they would probably suit the older lady...nice pink pouch though

Dermalogica Makeup bag
Small but cute - I actually think this may fit my Clarisonic Mia for travelling with!

Bonus Gift - Dermalogica Age Smart Lip Complex (Full size £22.50)
So small I can't imagine I will get much use or will no doubt lose it!

I can't help feeling like I have sounded really ungrateful but having spent £12.95 inc postage and packaging on these products I can't help but feel a little disappointed. 

Whilst I enjoy the anticipation of what I might receive I think its very risky when you consider that you are not guaranteed that there is going to be something that you like. I may have been unlucky and I am sure that there are many women out there that are extremely happy with this months box. 

On this not I probably won't continue with Glossybox and may try another brand such as feel unique which has had some good reviews. 

Have you got Octobers GlossyBox and what did you think?
