Glossybox September 2012


In South Africa Spring starts in September and the season is one full of special surprises and plenty of anticipation of things to come! September’s Glossybox has proved to be another super surprise and I’m delighted to share the contents with you here!

This month my Glossybox came crammed with goodies – all of them divine so it’s hard to choose a favourite but I think it’s a toss up between two. The Carolina Ferrera fragrance – as I’m a fan of fresh and pretty scents this feminine floral will be perfect for spring. The bold gold cuff bracelet is a another stunning accessory from 4Flavour – I must say they have impressed me with the items included in previous Glossyboxes – I’m super chuffed with the cuff as I have been hankering after this exact type of thing to accessorize a new outfit and didn’t know where to start looking so it’s arrival on my doorstep is pretty perfect!!

To find out more about the contents of this month’s box watch the vlog review below on YouTube or keep reading after the jump…


The September Glossybox includes:

A Sisley discovery treatment voucher valued at R1600!
Can’t wait to book an appointment at my nearest Sisley counter for an experience in all things Sisley! Divine.

A 15% off L’Occitane voucher as well as a complimentary hand treatment.
This is proving to be a stunning beauty brand so I can’t wait to pop in and take advantage of this!

A R150 off voucher for any set of Clipinhair extensions.
I’ve never had the need for hair extensions but it seems like a fun way to change your look in a short period of time… I’d be interested in hearing what your experiences of hair extensions is!

2 sample options of which you will receive 1 – I was sent both options for review purposes
Carolina Herrera CH L’eau (RSP: R690 for 50ml)
As I mentioned earlier I adore this perfume. It’s a feminine floral scent that’s a treat for spring! An “afternoon garden tea party” fragrance

“a fragrance that is bursting with petals and different floral varieties; a fresh fragrance with a unique personality; uplifting, daring and passionate”

Prada Candy perfume (RSP: R820 for 50ml)
The alternative fragrance is from Prada – another amazing fashion brand. This fragrance is more musky with warm vanilla and caramel notes. A “fun girls night out fragrance”

“daring, sensual and full of life; award winning fragrance; a sophisticated and elegant character”

Sans Soucis Deep Moist Depot (RSP: R380 for 30ml) or Herbal Day Balm (I didn’t get a sample)
A 90% natural and incredibly luxurious product that comes in a little glass bottle! This is divine when you need to deeply moisturize your parched skin! Great for vitalizing and optimizing the skin.

L’Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate (RSP: R625 for 200ml)
This almond milk concentrate for the body moisturizes, smoothes and tones the skin and smells divine while doing it.

Salon Care Moisture Boost Serum (RSP: R200 for 10ml)
A few months ago I was introduced to Salon Care by Glossybox with samples of their moisturizer and exfoliator which I enjoyed using. This is their serum and I’m pleased to try it out as serum is a product I’ve only just started using and I’m still looking out for a brand that works for me. Serums feed the skin with moisture and protects it from environmental damage and dehydration – an essential for everyone’s skincare regime.

A 4Flavour Gold Cuff
What a fab addition to this month’s box – obviously bulky jewellery is not for everyone but I am super pleased with this as it’s something I have been looking out for!! 4Flavour is available exclusively at YDE stores.
