{what's in my} october 2016 glossybox!

PRESS SAMPLE
Serum: Decleor Aromessence Neroli Hydrating Oil Serum | Mask: Masque Bar by Look Beauty Honey Face Sheet Mask | Tint: Emite Make Up Lip & Cheek Tint | Hair: OGX Beauty Anti-Hair Fallout Niacin3 + Caffeine Root Stimulator Spray | Cleanser: UNANI Il-lluminate Milk Cleanser

Just as I live for fall fashion, I breathe fall beauty, so I was super excited to see what GLOSSYBOX had in store for me this month; and let me tell you, I was not disappointed.

For those of you who aren't familiar with GLOSSYBOX, it is a monthly beauty subscription service wherein you receive 5 deluxe size beauty products for $21 a month based on the personal beauty profile you fill out when you sign up.

Last month's box catered to fall fashion, and featured a selection of beauty products favored by fashion insiders; but this month? A fall refresh, if you will, complete with necessaries to keep you looking brilliant as the temps drop! Granted, this box included skin products galore {which I'm not usually crazy about}; but all of them were magnificent, and I am so excited to share them with you!

Serums are not typically my jam; but my sensitive skin tends to turn dry when the temps drop {due, in v large part, to my exposure to wind during early morning dog walks}, so I was excited to give this bad boy a try! First, let's talk fragrance. I am dying {in a totally good way} over the musky, Sandalwood scent - it is exactly what I love for fall. Even better, the product itself was a gem. I found that it really hydrated my skin with just a minimal amount of product; without leaving it feeling greasy or oily. I could see this really coming in handy as it gets colder; and would def consider purchasing the full-size!


OGX Beauty products have been a mainstay in my hair care routine for a few years now; but the Anti-Hair Fallout Niacin3 + Caffeine line is new to me, and I've got to say, I dig it! Like with many OGX products, you definitely have to be mindful of how much you use {too much of this one and your hair looks and feels greasy}; but when you take that into consideration, the results are fabulous. I spray juuust a bit at my roots after my hair dries in the morning, and not only does it add lift and volume, it really does reduce fallout. This was a full-size product, and I'm now contemplating purchasing the shampoo and conditioner from the line to see if using all 3 together heightens the stellar results!


Another full-size product FTW! I'm not super familiar with lip and cheek tints, so I found this one from Emite Make Up to feel kinda sorta weird when I initially tried it. It applies thick, feeling slightly like a gel {which was new to me}, but the end result was brilliant! This leaves the prettiest, just-ate-a-cherry-popsicle tint on your lips that lasts and lasts and lasts. And on cheeks? The most perfect flush that looks natural, and doesn't fade! I would highly recommend this to everyone, as it would fit a wide-range of skintones. Would I rebuy? Most definitely; but I don't see this running out anytime soon, so there probably won't be a need.


I am still getting accustomed to sheet masks {they kind of make me feel like Jason from Friday the 13th when I wear them}; but when I saw that the Masque Bar by Look Beauty Honey Face Sheet Mask featured honey extracts and was meant to nourish and hydrate the skin, I was excited to give it a shot. You guys! I'm in love! It's a fairly wet mask, which I liked as it adhered to my skin v well. I left it on for 20 to 30 minutes {during which I felt like I was at a spa}, then rinsed it away to find that my skin was feeling ridiculously soft and looking radiant and glowy! This right here is essential for at-home pampering sessions. I'm planning on buying a box for my sister for the holidays!


Out of everything in this month's box, I thought that this would be my least liked item, but I wound up adoring UNANI's Il-lluminate Milk Cleanser, and will totally re-buy once I finish this full-size bottle! This is a no-foam cleanser that has a thick formula punctuated with a light, fresh, clean aloe and cucumber fragrance that I L-O-V-E. After every. single. use. of this product my skin glowed beautifully and felt so fresh and so clean. Bonus: it doubles as a fantastic makeup remover!
