September 2012 GlossyBox USA ; First ImpressionSaturday, September 22, 2012
I have finally received my first Glossybox!
This is my first foray into beauty subscription boxes of any kind. I decided on Glossybox because they'll be collaborating with Refinery29 on an upcoming box (I know this is a weak excuse, hehe). I was willing to buy the 3 months subscription because of that (that box will be filled with awesome goodies, I can't let that go!), and this also gives me an excuse to try out Glossybox itself.
I have to say... I'm quite impressed with Glossybox so far.
All the items in this months box will be of great use for me. I have combination/oily skin, so the OC 8 Professional Mattifying Gel may work well for me. The Missha bbcream was a nice surprise, as I've been meaning to find a starter bb cream to try out. The Global Keratin shampoo and conditioner will be a luxury item for my hair since I've never tried any kind of shampoo or conditioner with keratin in it. As for the Glossybox lipstick in Glossy Pink (from Kryolon for Glossybox), it's a nice addition, but I may have to experiment with this color to see if I like it or not.

Yikes, that Missha bb cream swatch looks way too pale for me. Hopefully with some oxidation, the color will darken a bit and match my skin tone (my face is lighter than my arms/hands due to the protection from SPF). As for the lipstick color... I definitely have to see this on my lips to see if it's a keeper.
I can't wait to start using these items. Hopefully they'll become favorites of mine!
What are your thoughts on the September Glossybox?
