November's Glossybox has arrived and it once again does not disappoint. For $23 a month, I am consistently happy with the majority of products that Glossybox delivers. I am not always 100% satisfied with everything, but for the price point, this box is really, really great. Let's get to the goodies.
1. Epionce Restorative Hand Cream ($19)
This is my favorite product in this month's box. I love the light raspberry scent and how hydrating this hand cream is. The product comes out a bit sticky, but is absorbed quickly and leaves my hands soft and smooth. I love this!
2. Illamasqua LTD Lip & Eye Medium Pencil in Forced (deep slate gray $20)
I felt hesitant to try gray eyeliner, but it turns out it actually looks really nice. It's kind of like wearing black eyeliner but much much softer. I didn't use this on my lips, but as an eyeliner it applied ok as well too. My only complaint is that even with eyeshadow base and concealer I couldn't get this eyeliner to stay in place. After two hours I already started to see it smudge. After 5 hours I had panda eyes! For $20, this is a no go.
3. Arganics by NuMe Argan Oil ($59)
I used four drops of this after washing my hair. After styling, my hair is softer and much more manageable. It wasn't oily at all and it helped to tame my frizzies. If only I had known about hair oils during my hair straightening college days!
4. Perfumies Solid Perfume Stick in Double Rainbow ($7)
This cute little perfume stick is pocket friendly and made from all natural coconut oil and beeswax base. It kind of looks like an elongated chapstick. To me, this smells just like laundry detergent or dishwashing soap. I'm not really a huge fan of perfume because they make my nose itchy, but if you like perfume and clean smelling scents, this should work for you.
5. Skin&Co Roma Truffle Serum: Hydro-Toning Day Face Serum ($36)
This anti-aging Italian serum infused with Peptides, pure extracts of Tuber Melanosporum and Hyaluronic Acid left my face smoother and brighter. Although this doesn't brighten as much as Ole Henrikson's Truth Serum, I still love it. It didn't irritate my skin and it definitely tightened it up as well. Two thumbs up!
