November Empties : products I've used up !

Bumble and Bumble Prep - I love this product ! I use it to help detangle my hair after I wash it ! You can also use it as a next day style refresher ! 
This product costs $20.00 and I would repurchase it ! 

Sally Hansen Insta-strong - This is a fantastic nail hardener ! I use it as a base coat and have really seen a huge difference in my nails ! 
it costs $3-5 and I would repurchase this polish ! 

Clean&Clear Morning Burst - Morning burst in-shower facial is a great product from Clean & Clear ! The delicious citrus scent is a great wake - up call in the morning !
 I used this product 2-3 times a week as a delicate exfoliate . This product costs $5-8 and I would maybe repurchase !

Nivea Hydro care - I have always been a fan of Nivea's lip-care line and this product doesn't disappoint ! Costs $3 and defiantly would repurchase !

Dove visiblecare body wash  - I received this product in my glossy box a couple months ago and finally used it up ! It is a good body wash with a refreshing light scent
 and it lives up to the claim of softer skin.  I recommend this product especially for the winter months. This product cost $7-9 and I would maybe repurchase.

glossy box : October 2012

This month's box was celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness . . . hence , the two pink products !  Okay , now I'm going to be a 'debbie downer' . I was REALLY disappointed in this months box.  If you have not heard , Glossy Box is raising the price from $15 to a hefty $21 per month.  And that adds up my friends ( just over $250 for a year ) . Thats a lot of money , and I don't know if I can justify paying $21 for a box full of products that I might not even enjoy. Now onto the products , I would usually be very pleased to see a full size nail polish , but this one is pink and frosty and not really my style ! also I got a shimmery darker pink in my July box ! And . . . I got a full size razor in my June box ! How many razors does one girl need? Seriously ! I have three now , thats way more then enough !  I guess these 'repeats' kinda made me question this subscription service . Now, the lip duo that apparently costs a whopping $38 . . . the gloss half of it its completely sheer and very sticky, and the lipstick is not my colour . I guess I will give this company 2 or 3 months to really 'wow' me or I'm going to cancel.

                                                                                                                                value of products this month : $76.29
                                                                                                                                                                                                   glossy box price : $21.00 per month
