Glambox Review - December and January

Hooray for the January Glambox!
Hooray for the beauty minies!

I am glad we finally have our own little local sibling (or copycat?) of
mighty US Birchbox and chic UK Glossybox
(which are not available internationally)

Still wondering what it is?

A gift box with at least 4-5 product miniatures
selected according to your beauty profile and
delivered to you once per month for 7.90 euro

Glambox promises not to repeat the products in the box
as well as provide at least 2 bigger sized products in each set

According to the concept, the products should be from high-end brands for you to test them before making an expensive purchase. Unfortunately, our boxy box is not that "luxurious" at the moment.
However, I hope they will "grow fancy" in the nearest time.

Let's take a closer look at January's Glam Box
Glambox Team's letter + product descriptions

The Goodies! and Geisha :)

 So, briefly about the product selection:

1.JOICO/K-PAK Color Therapy Restorative Styling Oil
Sample size: 21.5 ml/0.7 fl oz
Price: 100 ml for 24 euro
"Seal and nourished the cuticle to lock in color; strengthens, protects and repair, imparts vibrant shine, conditions hair for incredible smoothness, reduces drying and styling time"

I have already given it a try - a little early to talk about the results, but it does provide a good amount of conditioning and shine to my hair with only a tiny drop. A little bit more and you end up with greasy hair.

2. SPARITUAL Harmonizing Soak Tonic
Sample size: 6 ml/0.2 fl oz
Price: 225 ml for 28.15 euro
"Italian Mandarin essential oil energizes the sacral chakra. This soak tonic smoothes and conditions, for noticably softer body, hands and feet."

 3. BodyFarm Frangipani Body Milk
Sample size: not recorded
Price: 250 ml for 7.80 euro
"Body milk with active Jojoba and Aloe Vera juice, support the skin's natural defence system."

I liked the consistency and hydration was nice, but this particular one was almost fragrance-free whereas I prefer more scented lotions. I got my eyes on the Cinnamon lotion - uuuu need to try that one! :)

4. ColorOn Professional Eye Envy in "Tiger"
Sample size: 1 pair
Price: 5 pairs for 29 euro
To me it's a discovery, so take a look yourself

5. Wild&MIld Nail Polish
Sample size: 14ml (full-size)
Price: 14 ml for 2.90 euro
Eeeh, not in love with the color. Looks exactly like drugstore nail polish Wild&Crazy. I usually skip on these.

December's Glambox (shortened)

Laurence Dumont Bio Chocolat Epilation Bandes for the furry legs
(16 tk for 9.30 euro, full-size sample)

1. RICH Pure Luxury Intense Moisture Shampoo (250 ml for 9.90 euro, sample 80 ml)
"A truly extravagant daily shampoo that delivers intense moisture & shine"
The packaging reminds me somewhat of TIGI, 
shampoo itself is nicely but not overall fragranced, thick. 
Nice one, but did not see any dramatic differences. 
Might be too moisturising for oily types of hair.

2. SPARITUAL Instinctual Oil (225 ml for 37.70 euro, sample 6 ml)
" Made with 20% certified organic ingredients, Instinctual Oil moisturizes and smoothes skin."
Loooove this one, my skin felt so velvet and had a gorgeous shine. Takes longer to absorb. Price bites a little!

3.GLOMINERALS gloPressed Base (9.9 g for 42 euro)
"Supplies a flawless, matte complexion with long-lasting mineral coverage"
I used it as a setting powder, cause it gives more light-to-medium coverage in my opinion. 
I actually liked it but I find it too overpriced. 
It's currently being offered in Amazon for $20 which is less than twice the price!

4. Lirene Intensively Moisturising Cream (50 ml for 6.12 euro, sample 15 ml)
"Intensely moisturizing cream leaves your skin look fresh and lightened up"
Impressed with that one, use it every day under my foundation, provides a good base and absorbs instantly! Included into my wishing list.

5. Wild & Mild Full Nail Sticker (1 set for 2.60 euro)
Have them in a strange pattern, this why haven't opened it yet :)
