I wrote about Ann-Sofie@between heaven and earth and Glossybox a couple of weeks ago. When I visit Ann-Sofie@color it the first time she had posted a post about “Glossybox”– and I signed up straight away. She has two blogs now – both are in English and Swedish. She is much smarter than me.
A little box with beauty products that land at my door step once a month (not true because here in Sweden we have to collect our parcels at the post office ourselves, where ever that can be – my post office is a candy store).
Have been waiting quite a while for my box – and it arrived the day before I took of to Stockholm, got an email telling me the tracking number and I got the number wrong, so when I went to the post office after my Zumba Class … they couldn’t find it. So I collected it this Wednesday instead.It’s was so beautiful wrapped and presented – nearly a pity to open it. Very nice contents too. “Glossybox” you can join all over the world.
A full size, 50ml, of Garnier’s BB Cream – using “L’Oréal” Nude Magique BB cream for the moment and l love it. Interesting to see how Garnier’s are.
“Garnier’s BB Cream” won the Swedish Beauty Awards 2012 and it will cost me about 119 SEK/£11.10/$17.73/€13.91 – slightly cheaper than L’Oreal Nude BB.I got a chocolate bar from Fazer (Finish) and their “Geisha”– one of my favorite chocolates, even if not Swedish – they have after many years now launched it in dark chocolate. Dark chocolate am I not too keen on – but the bar disappeared in less than 2 hours. It was delicious and of very high quality. Have to tell you that Fazer and Geisha has supported the Pink Ribbon under many years.
Got a sample, 75ml, of Aussie’s “3 Minute Miracle” – Deep Conditioner with Australian balm mint that are supposed to smoothes rough cuticles and helps restore manageability and add shine. I used “Aussie” hair products for many years – before I went over to “John Frieda’s” range for red hair. Aussie’s are fantastic products, so I’m glad for that one. Perfect week away size.
Also got a travel size, 30ml, of “Brilliant Smiles” whitening mouth rinse. A product I know nothing about, more than I have seen their commercials on TV, expensive products. A Swedish product – a travel size bottle will cost me 35.00SEK/£3.27/$5.23/€4.10.Have been using Colgate Mouth Wash for nearly 18 years. My dentist said that there are only 3 things that do what they promise and that is “Oral-b” electric toothbrushes, Colgate toothpaste and Mouthwash – he said that 18 years ago and that is what I have only been using since then and I haven’t had any dental problems neither. This little bottle from “Brilliant Smile” I will use when I fly long distance and need to brush my teeth during the flight, perfect hand luggage size.
In the box there was also 4ml of “Nail Inc” nail polish, wonderful deep red color by name “tate”. “Nail Inc” is a London based company with brilliant nail products – I bought all my girlfriends a nail file in glass decorated with real Swarovski Crystals from just Nail Inc – must be about 5 years ago and they are still going strong. My girlfriends claims it the best thing since sliced bread.To last the “Luxurious Exfoliating Soap Bar” from “beautybird” – a German company that I never heard of. The bar is for hands use only. It smells wonderful and I’m suppose to use it daily and it will clean and silken the skin. It will give me a deep clean and nourish with a long-lasting velvet touch of softness. Can’t wait to start using that – been looking on their website the bar will cost me 9.00€/£7.18/ $11.47/77.00SEK – I got a full size soap, 75gr.
For 138.00SEK/£12.88/€16.13/$20.56 that I pay each month am I very pleased with my little pink box – only the BB cream is nearly cover the cost for the box. A great way to try new products!
And I’m already longing for my next box *smile
Based on the chocolate bar from Fazer – Geisha and the theme of the box, The Beauty of a Geisha – have I chosen as my music cloud for this post a track from the beautiful movie – Memories of a Geisha – from 2005 . Music written by John William.
