I have another GlossyBox to show you. This one is called the Summer Nights box, I believe, for July.
Products I Like:
Senna Cosmetics Lip Lacquer in Double Dipped (clear candy pink and gold-flecked peach)
It’s pretty! I’m actually really happy to try out Senna Cosmetics as I’ve always wanted to try their products.
Products I Dislike:
Ofra Cosmetics Universal Eyebrow Pencil – The texture was very hard.
Alessandro International Pedix Heel Rescue Balm
Almond and Aloe Hand & Body Emulsion by Caswell-Massey
Really? Another cream? Two more Creams? After the June box filled with cream products?
Sebastian Color Ignite Multi-tone Shampoo & Conditioner – not sulfate-free. I can’t use shampoo and conditioner with sulfate because my scalp will burn, flake, turn red and hurt like hell.. Also, it doesn’t smell very appealing.
To me, this box is another bust. There’s one product I like, which is the Senna Cosmetics gloss (which retails for $22).
I wish I could talk to whoever is putting together the boxes. I would tell her – or him – that drowning your subscribers in creams and hair products that aren’t sulfate-free is not the way to put a winning box together. No one needs to receive 2 boxes filled with creams back to back! Skincare and Haircare are not the only beauty products out there! I truly am looking for makeup, such as glosses, nail polish and eyeshadows, not haircare products I can’t use or creams. I really think GlossyBox should take down subscriber information such as – cruelty-free products only and sulfate-free hair products only. there would be far less disappointment if something like this was implemented.
That said, I received another GlossyBox that I will be reviewing for you shortly, which promises to be much better.
Edited to Add: One of my lovely readers informed me that the Sebastian products included in the box have been discontinued. This makes me feel like whoever is putting together the boxes is just chucking crap in the box, without a care for what subscribers will actually want to purchase or enjoy. Please stop putting together boxes with discontinued items and too many creams.
What do you think of this GlossyBox? Are there any products you like? What do you think of Senna Cosmetics?
To the best of my knowledge:
Ofra Cosmetics is cruelty-free.
Senna Cosmetics is cruelty-free.
Sebastian is not cruelty-free.
I am unsure about Alessandro International or Caswell-Massey.
Products sent for consideration. All opinions are my own.
