Glossybox November Review (Part 2)

Hello lovelies,

Just a quick little post since I finally got my hands on my November Glossybox last week. I was a bit annoyed as they had promised it would arrive before the 4th of December, which it failed to do. But I guess better late than never, right?

So here we go, let's look at what arrived this time. The items that were the same as in the previous box were:

Pink jelly beans 

Deluxe sample of Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Ultra Firm and Lift Cream

Full sized Bio Oil

Full sized Mirenesse 3D Lip gloss (I got shade #8, Hello Kitten, this time. It looks like a colour I would definitely get more wear out of, can't wait to try it out properly!)

Mini Essie polish in Super Bossa Nova (thankfully intact this time, yay!)

And the item that was different from the previous box: I got a full sized Lily Loves Pearl facial exfoliant. Quite excited to try this, I wonder how it will compare to my Dermalogica Microfoliant? 

It states on the box: A gentle, daily facial exfoliant with antioxidants and a blend of Grapefruit, Jojoba and Lime combined to hydrate and deep cleanse skin. The gentle polishing beads leave skin fresh, smooth and radiant. Helps fight the visual signs of ageing.

Well, doesn't that sound amazing? I'm sold! I'm going to have to try it and let you all know what I think shortly. Stay tuned for an upcoming post. ;)

From L - R: Mirenesse 3D lipgloss, pink jellybeans,
Lilly loves pearl facial exfoliant, Essie polish
 in Super Bossa Nova, Jurlique cream and BioOil.


So there you have it, folks...I was much happier with this box compared to the last one...especially as I was quite happy to receive a full-sized exfoliant instead of the Bobbi Brown cleansing oil sample.

Verdict: Much happier...BUT still not 100% satisfied. If only I hadn't had to go through the trauma of posting multiple messages on their wall and sending their customer service multiple emails. All of which was for naught as the replacement box failed to arrive before the promised date. 

Much love,


  1. I can't wait to read up about the facial exfoliant. I'm jealous you got one. I would have loved to try it out instead of the BB cleansing oil.

  2. I so agree, hun...I didn't like my BB cleansing oil and gave it away, actually. I'm quite happy with my Dermalogica one but will definitely be giving this one a go! Keep your eyes peeled. :)

  3. Hey hun, have you tried the LLP exfoliant yet? I'm looking at ordering it on the weekend and was wondering if you liked it. And how it compares to the Dermalogica one? XO

  4. Whilst I know it was annoying to have to complain I am pleased they were able to make it up and that you received the exfoliant. The BB cleansing oil is just so so, I much prefer Nude organic's cleansing oil... The colour of the nail polish looks fab X

  5. Ohhh Ingrid I'll have to try the Nude organics cleansing oil. Thanks for the rec :) XO
