Glossybox Österreich Oktober 2013


I’ll leave out the ads and the Glossymag from October’s Glossybox.

After a first look at the whole box, here are the products on their own:


Balance Me shine on tinted lip salve: a slightly tinted (color not very visible on lips) balm that doubles as gloss. It contains peppermint and spearmint, and this is also what it smells and tastes like. It is not sticky at all on the lips. I can’t say yet how nurturing it is. full size.


Back view with ingredients.


Naobay Oxygenating Cream: moisturizer; another organic brand. Sample size of 30 ml (but the full size has only 50 ml).


Back view. Ingredients look pretty good for winter.


Diadermine Hautverschönerndes Multi-Zonen Öl: Body Oil with pump spray! Very happy to try this! Another great product for a “we’re slowly moving into winter” box. full size.

edited to add: just showered and used this; then immediately retired my current body lotion. This one will get used to the last drop. (note of caution: close your eyes when spraying on your upper body, tis not pleasant to get in the eye)




Syoss 10 in 1 Essential Wonder (Wunderkur): oh, COME ON. This feels like the 456783th hair spray thingy. It claims to restore your hair and it also claims 9 other things (hence the 10 in 1). full size.


Back view, sorry it was not possible to get a good pic. The ingredients include several types of silicone. Other things, too, but that’s all I need to know about it. Every single “Oh, I’ll repair your hair, it’ll be like new” product contains silicone. And it never ends well. Let me tell you a thing about hair: it is dead. It cannot and never will repair itself. If it is damaged you have two options: cut it off or hide the damage behind a veil of silicone. Sure, with silicone you won’t see the damage (or see less of it) but it will still be there. And behind that veil, the hair will not get any better. /2cents


And last: Alien by Thierry Mugler! A super cute miniature of the famous perfume.

All over, a great box. Lots of nurturing stuff for when it gets colder plus a heavy perfume. I’m not happy about the hair product, but not everyone has these hang-ups about silicone. I do think I got enough conditioning sprays to last me about five years (if I used them). So it would be nice to see something else for a while. By the way, Glossybox, I could need an eye cream for a change. 😉
