October Glossybox 2012 (Spa luxe edition)

Hello everyone! Happy November!! I know this is an October Glossybox and this is a late post because I was waiting to do the unboxing with you guys then I was posting something else first then before I know it, I was late.  I apologized for this and I am trying to catch up with everything. :)

Here is the link to the video I uploaded in Youtube: (pardon my excitement in here during the lipstick/lipgloss swatches) haha  Pls don't forget to subscribe to my channel! and liked my videos. Thanks so much for the support.  XOXO

Well here are the lists of all the items I received in my Glossybox.

1.  ALTERNA BAMBOO     Luminous Shine Mist        Price of full size: $22/4oz

An eco-certified shine mist made with Indian gooseberry and organic bamboo that controls frizz and flyaways.   It is a brilliant and weightless gloss for any hair type.

2.  CAROL'S DAUGHTER       Shea Souffle          Price of full size: $20/8oz

A superbly rich and fast absorbing daily moisturizer containing Shea butter, cocoa butter, and Jojoba oil to help you reach your skin's optimal softness.  This shea souffle is non-greasy and free of parabens, mineral oil and artificial colors.

I tried a little bit of this onto my hand because that is where my skin gets super dry and honestly, the product is good but the fragrance is too strong to my liking.  I think I am going to have to pass this to someone else.  After using it for a few hours, I literally have to wash the lotion off of my hand and I can still smell it after washing it (so that proves the lotion gives some long lasting fragrance lol)

3.  HEARTLAND FRAGRANCES    Exfoliating Loofa Soap     Price of full size:  $8/6oz

A truly unique hand-poured loofa soap and encased in a gentle glycerin provides the perfect blend of moisture and exfoliation.  This soap is designed to improve circulation and is great for exfoliating.

4.  MODELCO  LIP DUO Lipstick &Ultra Shine LipGloss     Price of full size: $39 Lipstick .13oz
                                                                                                                     Lipgloss .07floz

 I seriously love getting lipstick, lipgloss or anything makeup related in my box.  You can see how giddy I get when I see this in my box.  LOL

The lipstick part. Ok, see in above picture that it has a mirror included which is awesome by the way.  I think it is such a great idea however, now that I have tried the lipstick, I can actually tell you that you cannot put the lipstick on using the mirror lol because it is attached with the lipstick body.  Only when I use the lipgloss that I can use the mirror attached with the lipstick.

I really like this lip gloss.  It really adds a good shine to my lips.  I find though that the lipstick and lipgloss combination is bulky.  It is alright if you only go to a party and just want to bring this combo in your purse, however to take this in your makeup bag along with the rest of your stuff, it can add some weight.

5.  NATASSJA SKIN  Enzyme Facial Peel             Price of full size: $40/2oz

This revolutionary facial peel is infused with vitamins and nutrients.  It exfoliates with papain, a naturally occurring enzyme in papaya, and gently eliminates dead, dry skin cells to reveal a more radiant skin.

I really love the smell of this facial peel.  I have not tried it but if I have to put this on my face and relax for 10 or 15 minutes, I won't have a problem. LOL I probably will enjoy it way too much.  Haha

I also received a coupon of 20% off for a DVD workout from physique 57.  I showed it in my video.  I forgot to take a picture of it.

Also in the video, I mentioned my nail polish that I did for October month.  I love the nail art and I found this nail art picture on Beautylish.

 Fun and cute don't you agree? I love it.  I got so many compliments from this nail art. Now I did not go to the video to see how to do this nail art.  I just look at the picture and figure out how to do it because it is pretty simple.  It is her idea and I love her for posting a picture of it because it is one of my favorite nail art.  I am including her tutorial because the credit goes to her and not me.  So enjoy her video because she has other cute and awesome nail arts.

You can find this tutorial by clicking it HERE (This is a link to her Youtube video)

Face:  YSL Foundation
Brow: MAC Concrete
Eyes:  Make Up Forever La Boheme Spring Palette 2012
Perversion Eyeliner and Too Faced Lash Lining Tools
Eyelash: KISS Ever Pro Lashes Starter Kit in no. 5
