 GLOSSYBOX October Beauty Box 
Inside the October Beauty Box:
It has been quite a while since I have had the pleasure of a GLOSSYBOX Beauty Box, and I am lamenting the fact that I have really been missing out! The October Beauty Box is a real treat, and of the five products enclosed, three are full size with the remaining two deluxe samples.
Rituals Shower Happy Buddha Sweet Orange & Cedar Foaming Shower Gel Sensation (Full size $15.00 for 6.7 oz.): Longtime readers already know how much I love Rituals products, and their rich and creamy Shower Gels are among my very favorite body washes. Happy Buddha's delectable dense foam, coupled with its intoxicating sweet orange and cedar aroma, make this a shower-time treat that delights the senses. Furthermore, this is a very moisturizing body wash that thoroughly cleanses the skin without any stripping. I also love to use this to shave my legs and underarms!

According to Rituals,

Start each day with a boost of happiness with our Happy Buddha Shower Foam; that combines the citrus scent of Sweet Orange and warmth of Cedar Wood. 

Simply squeeze a small amount of gel into your hand, massage it into your skin and watch it transform into a rich, creamy, moisturizing foam. Lasts up to 50 showers (depending on how much you use!) 

To enhance this sweet fragrance, use the Touch of Happiness Body Cream after showering for the ultimate Laughing Buddha experience.

Ingredients: Aqua/Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sorbitol, Isopentane, Isopropyl Palmitate, Isobutane, Peg-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Parfum/Fragrance, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Benzoate, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Citric Acid, Juniperus Virginiana Oil, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Linalool, Limonene, Hexyl Cinnamal, Citronellol.
LUÉ by Jean Sec Erase Cleansing Exfoliating & Brightening Powder (Full Size $15.00 for 2 oz.): Simply mix a tablespoon Erase with a half tablespoon of water and mix it into a paste. Apply the paste to the face and let it sit for about a minute, in order for it to dry down, and then gently massage it into the skin to remove dead skin cells, dislodge blackheads and whiteheads from congested pores and to deeply cleanse the skin. If you wish to further exfoliate, then simply add another few drops of water to reactivate the paste, and then rinse thoroughly and pat dry. It leaves skin baby soft, silky smooth, vibrant and radiant.

According to LUÉ,

Step 1 of LUE's Skin Solution Set, ERASE, is a cleansing, exfoliating & brightening powder. Made with non-fat milk powder, finely milled whole grain oats, and a touch of magnesium carbonate, this perfectly pH balanced gommage clears complexion, balances skin, and leaves it radiant and smooth.

Mix a tablespoon of ERASE with half a tablespoon of water to form a paste. Apply to face and let dry for one minute. While still damp, gently massage away. Paste should come off like eraser peels, taking blackheads out, softening complexion, and reducing the appearance of large pores. Add a drop of water to continue erasing if paste dries. Use twice a week or as needed. Can be used separately within any skincare regimen.

Ingredients: Avena Sativa Kernel Flour, Nonfat Dry Milk, Magnesium Carbonate.
JAFRA Girl Squad Eau de Toilette (Deluxe Sample Purse Spray 0.23 oz. Full Size $33.00 for 1.7 oz.): I have only smelled this Eau de Toilette, but have not yet worn it.

According to JAFRA,

The Girl Squad Eau de Toilette is a scent that takes you to a place of unforgettable excitement. Bright notes of White Nectarine inspire you to live a new adventure. The Better Together accord, a special arrangement of scents created just for Girl Squad, comes together with the aroma of Fair Trade Vanilla & Red Musk. They are great apart, but even better as one; just like you and your squad!
Clove + Hallow Lip Glaze in Angelic (Deluxe Sample. Full Size $15.00): I have always been a gloss girl, and Clove + Hallow Lip Glaze is just my kind of gloss! It is lightweight, non-sticky, it offers a gorgeous luminous shine, it boasts beautiful pigmentation and it is very comfortable on the lips. Furthermore, it is hydrating, it is filled with healthy ingredients, has no discernible flavor or fragrance, and Angelic is the perfect my lips, but better mauve. I. AM. IN. LOVE.

According to Clove + Hallow,

Formulated with natural olive oil, jojoba oil and shea butter, our PETA-certified cruelty-free and vegan Lip Glaze offers inspired color and a dazzling finish without stickiness.
Ingredients: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil*, Oleic/Linoleic/Linolenic Polyglycerides, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Silica, Euphorbia, Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Tocopherol *Organic Ingredient; May Contain: Titanium Dioxide Ci 77891, Iron Oxides Ci 77491, Iron Oxide Ci 77492, Iron Oxide Ci 77499, Red 7 Lake Ci 15850, Yellow 5 Lake Ci 19140, Red 27 Lake Ci 45410. 99% Natural, 64% Organic.
Vasanti Eyeshadow Brush (Full Size $21.00): I can never have too many synthetic, tapered eyeshadow brushes, and Vasanti makes a really fine one. The tapered tip is ideal for picking up, laying down and blending color. The bristles are firm enough to be ultra-effective, and yet not so firm as to be scratchy. In fact, it is soft and smooth against the skin, and a real pleasure to use.

According to Vasanti,

Made with soft nylon bristles, this tapered eyeshadow brush is ideal for placing colour, highlighting and blending work. All Vasanti brushes are 100% synthetic and made with the highest quality nylon hairs that are tightly woven.  Brushes are cruelty-free as they don’t come from animal hairs.
Overall Assessment: Not only is the GLOSSYBOX October Beauty Box a great value, but I will also happily use everything in this box.

  1. What a wonderful Glossybox this month! I received a couple of their boxes last fall, and I loved them. The full size products they send are amazing. I am so curious about what sweet orange and cedar smell like together, since you know I love RITUALS too. I would also love the lipgloss, the cleansing powder, the makeup brush and I'd be curious to try the fragrance as well. Even the color of the box and tissue paper is appealing to me. I'd be thrilled with this box

    1. I agree, they really did a phenomenal job! I think that you would like the scent of this Rituals the sweet orange juxtaposed with the cedar is a very interesting, and lovely, blend. Not too sweet, and not too spicy! This lip gloss is AMAZING, and it immediately went into my purse. In fact, I like it so much that i plan to buy the full size gloss when I use this one up! I haven't worn the fragrance yet, but I spritzed it and likes the smell.

  2. One of my coworkers and I were just talking about Glossybox! Looks awesome!

    1. This is such a great box, and I can hardly wait to see what they do in November!

  3. In 3 years of subscribing I don't know if I got any full size items. This is a great box. I'd love that gloss too and Vasanti makes great brushes.

    1. This is definitely a fantastic box, and I was impressed by the number of full size products! This gloss is just your kind of color and formula, and the Vasanti brush is definitely a great find!

  4. Glossybox is one of my favorite higher end boxes. I love the Rituals Foaming Shower Gel, but I haven't tried that scent yet.

    1. Agreed, it's a great beauty box subscription! Rituals is one of my favorite brands, and their Foaming Shower Gels are the best! This one has a great scent, not too sweet and not too woodsy!
