October Glossybox 2012

This month's Glossybox is geared towards unwinding for some serious pampering time. Every hard working gal needs some R&R, and Glossybox is recognizing this special time in our lives this month. 
The theme for October is "Spa Luxe."  The October box offers an array of luxurious treatments to 'refresh and rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit.'

ooh la la...

Carol's Daughter & Nastassja Skin

I heard a lot of buzz on Carol's Daughter care products some time ago as it is adored by celebrities such as Jada Pinkett-Smith, Mary J Blige, and Halle Berry - just to name a few.  Upon opening the box, this is the first thing that caught my eye.  It came in a very generous size.  The scent I received is Ectasy.  It's a Shea Souffle, and is a fast absorbing daily moisturizer containing Shea butter, Cocoa butter, and Jojoba oil to soften the skin.  It is non greasy and contains no parabens, mineral oil, and artificial colors.

The next thing is the Nastassja Skin Enzyme Peel.  I have never tried a facial peel before, so this should be interesting.  It says that this peel is infused with vitamins and nutrients while it exfoliates with papain,a natural occurring enzyme in papaya to aid in eliminating dead dry skin cells.


The Modelco lipstick looked really interesting.  It is a lip duo, with lipstick on one end and an ultra shine lip gloss on the other end.  I received the "Dusk" lipstick and the "Striptease" gloss.  The nice thing about this item is that it comes with an attached mirror.  This should be handy to take on the go...
Secret Garden
I have never seen a soap combined with a loofa before, and this got to be the most interesting item in this box.  It's called an exfoliating loofa soap from Heartland Fragrances.  The glycerin soap is hand poured onto a loofa for the 'perfect blend  of moisture and exfoliation.' It also improves circulation.  The smell of this soap is so sweet that it radiates all over the box. It smells like it is good enough to eat. lol

Anterna Bamboo

Lastly, I can't wait to try the lumnious shine mist for the hair.  It is eco-certified made with Indian gooseberry and organic bamboo to control frizz and flyaways.  

All in all, I feel that this month's Glossybox did it again.  I am amazed at all the wonderful products Glossybox gathered together this month. 

Have you tried any of these products?
