Glossybox Canada - March Edition

I was really excited to hear that Glossybox was coming to Canada!  I signed up as soon as I heard but I was a little bit too late to get their first box in February.  Oh well!  The wait for the March box was worth it.

So what is Glossybox?  Glossybox is a makeup subscription service.  Each month, you will receive 5 beauty product samples that ranges from makeup to bath products.  Some of the product samples are actual full size products!  That's a huge win in my book.  The service costs $15 per month but that already includes taxes and shipping.  The company started out in Germany and has now expanded to 18 different countries!  I believe Glossybox USA is coming soon!

So onto my March box...

In this month's box, I received:
-Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion 71 ml at $2.40 (full size price is 354 ml/$11.99)
-Bailey Fresh Lip Gloss in Berry 8 g at $28 (full size!)
-Pandora's Box Blush in St. Tropez 4g at $18 (full size!)
-Sebastian Re-Shaper Hairspray 43 g at $19.95 (full deluxe size sample?)
-Evian Brumisateur Facial spray 50 ml at $7 (full deluxe size sample)
Bonus: Algemarin Foam Bath 15 ml at $2.39 (5x5ml/$3.99)

Actual cost samples: $77.74!

Now, on to the reviews of the individual products that I received in this month's box.

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion:  I was already an avid user of this product so I was delighted to see a smaller size product in my box that I can tote around in my purse.  I have dry skin and eczema (Yay me! =P) so Aveeno is my skin's best friend.  It keeps me moisturized all day!  Their 24 hour claim for moisturized skin is definitely true.

Bailey Fresh Lip Gloss in Berry:  I love the colour of this lip gloss!  It is a deep berry colour.  The gloss doesn't feel too tacky or sticky.  It gave my lips a deeper tint.

Pandora's Box Blush in St. Tropez:  In the pan, the blush is a light bright pink.  On my skin, it gives me a little pink flush.  It is a matte blush with an okay pigmentation.  However, you can build up the colour really well.  The formula feels great and not at all chalky.

Sebastian Re-Shaper Hairspray:  I haven't had the chance to try out this product yet.  Also, I'm not sure if this is a full size product.  The description card that came along with the box mentioned that the full size hairspray is 43 g for $19.95.  The sample given is 43 grams but it just seems too tiny to be a full size product.  It is most likely that the product given is a full deluxe size sample rather than a full size product.

Evian Brumisateur Facial Spray:  I love facial sprays.  They feel so refreshing.  I've only used an Avene facial spray before so I can't wait to try out Evian's facial spray.

Algemarin Foam Bath:  Again, I haven't had the chance to try out this product yet.  I haven't had much time to draw up a bath so I usually just take a shower.  First chance I get, I'll try this product out.

Bottom line: March's Glossybox is Makeup Critic approved.  It featured 2 full size products all for the cost of $15.
