Here are my thoughts on September 2015’s Glambox. There are some lovely products in it :
1 & 2) L’OReal Elvive Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner : Though these products have been around for a while, I had never tried it. So I was pretty delighted to find two of these full sized products in this box.
The shampoo is really lovely. It suits my hair so well. It doesn’t dry it out at all unlike most other shampoos. This shampoo is meant for Normal hair with tendency to dry. It has a really lovely scent since it has 6 precious & rare flower oils incorporated in it. I love the way my hair feels after using this shampoo. This could very well be one of the best shampoos I have used recently. I am glad to have discovered it through Glambox. It’s transparent and has a light consistency. It lathers mildly. One negative though that I need to highlight is that it contains Sodium Laureth Sulfate. What a bummer!. But unlike other shampoos with SLS, it doesn’t dry out my hair at all.
The conditioner is quite lovely too and has the same scent as the shampoo. It’s consistency is more creamy than most conditioners by other brands. It’s golden colored with a sparkly look. It’s so pretty. I like this product a lot too. It leaves my hair looking healthy and really lovely. The smell lingers on the hair lightly for quite a while.
3) L’Occitane Dry Skin Hand cream : L’Occitane is a brand I quite love. This hand cream contains 20% Organic Shea Butter. It has a thick consistency and is white in color. It has a light scent and I believe it can easily be used by those who only prefer fragrance free products due to skin sensitivity. It really takes away dryness, revealing soft, nourished skin.
The sample came in a 10 ml tube. Also included in the box is a little leaflet that lists several of L’Occitane’s popular products and a coupon code for 15% discount while shopping on L’Occitane’s local website!.
4) Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E : This is not a new product for me but still I am glad I got a sample, because it’s one of the most moisturizing cocoa butters out there. It’s thick, smells deliciously of cocoa and is simply indulgent. It’s creamy yellow in color and gives amazing hydration to the skin. Goodbye dry skin!. I even have my own big bottle of this Palmer’s product, which has a pump on it.
The sample in the box contains 50 ml. I can’t say am a fan of the bottle that it comes in. Once you reach mid way through, it’s hard to get the product out of it. My suggestion is to keep it upside down at all times so that it’s easier to use.
Two perfume samples
I can never get enough of perfume!. It’s one of my most favorite things in the world. There were 2 samples in this September’s box!
● Mon Parfum by M. Micallef – This parfum has a very strong scent of Tangerine & Orange Blossom that gradually settles into a charming scent of Vanilla & Musk. The first hit is so strong, it almost feels like this is a men’s perfume. However, it isn’t. But I passed this onto my father and he is quite a fan of it. The scent lasts long even when you wear it in hot climate. The sample in this box came in a little spray bottle that contains 1.6ml.
● La Panthere by Cartier – Ahh what can I say about this scent!. It is without any doubt one of the most sensual scents I have ever come across. It is soft and delicate, yet can be quite a statement. Such a classy scent, I can’t get enough of it. I really wish it came in a bottle. However, it came as a scented card which has floral designs on it and an artistic cut out of a panther’s face. This card was inserted in a little envelope that also had a golden panther’s face artistically printed on it. So classy!.
One another thing included in the box, is a pretty transparent pouch with a golden border and zip. It’s courtesy M. Micallef Parfums. It’s so pretty, perfect to carry in your hand bag.
Usually I note the prices of all products, for their full sized versions. However, this time around the card that displays all these information, was omitted from the box.
Overall, what a lovely Glambox. Of late, Glambox is upping the ante by partnering with awesome brands. I am already looking forward to the upcoming boxes. Why don’t you look at the three subscription options and subscribe to Glambox today itself!. ♡
