The Big Reveal: December 2012 GlossyBox Canada

Yay!  GlossyBox time!  This box came as a nice little belated Christmas present.  The neat thing about this month’s box?  GlossyBox teamed up with LouLou Magazine for a box curated by the magazine – take a look at the LouLou favourites I received this month.  Interested in signing up for GlossyBox?  You can save 10% off your first box by using the code GLOSSY8 at checkout!

Check out my box + read on for LouLou’s beauty tips!

Tresemme Fresh Stat Dry Shampoo (56 g sample – full size $5.99/161 g) + Tresemme Split Remedy Sachet (9 ml samples – full size $5.99/700 ml) – I have to admit, I’m not the biggest fan of Tresemme products as I haven’t had fantastic results with them in the past, but I am a huge supporter of dry shampoo and am willing to give this one a try.  The split remedy sachets will come in handy as well – my poor hair is in need of some serious TLC right now.

LouLou Tips: -Mist some dry shampoo on to give your ‘do a little sexy bedhead texture.

– Let your hair soak in this conditioner’s benefits by leaving it on for a few minutes before rinsing.

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer (FULL SIZE – $22.99) and Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (FULL SIZE – $22.99) – I love Aveeno products – you always know you’re going to get exactly what you expect with them.  The Ultra-Calming lotion helps to soothe irritation due to dry skin – I wish I had this last week after spending a few hours skating outside!  I’m really excited about the tinted moisturizer – I’ve been meaning to try some for a while now, and this is said to improve skin’s radiance.  Bonus?  Both contain SPF 30 to help protect the skin.

LouLou Tips: – Mix a drop of the Ultra-Calming Moisturizer with your favourite liquid foundation for a luminous complexion.

– Smooth this tinted moisturizer all over your face, making sure to blend it carefully along your jawline for a flawless finish.

Avon Lip Radiance in Silver Foil (FULL SIZE) – an assortment of Avon products went out in the boxes this month – I received the Lip Radiance lip gloss which I’m definitely happy about – this gloss is sheer and glossy.

LouLou Tip: The number one makeup rule is always pick one feature to emphasize (eyes or lips) and keep the rest simple.

Revlon Nail Enamel in Craving Coral (FULL SIZE – $5.99) – I love Revlon polishes – they go on nicely and last really well.  Not only that, but this colour is gorge – bright flaming red.

LouLou Tip: Nail art is all the rage right now!  Get creative by painting each nail a different colour or adding contrast at the tips.

GlossyBox Lashes (FULL SIZE – $12.50) – Yay!  Another GlossyBox exclusive item!  These lashes pack some serious drama (they actually remind me of these ones from Eylure’s new Katy Perry line) – I’m not too sure I’ll be wearing them anytime soon, but I’m going to try to pull them out when I want to add some oomph to my look.

LouLou Tip: Dress up your gaze with false lashes!  Simply run a bit of glue along the edge, press them on at the base of your natural fringe to set them, and voila!

Another little bonus this month?  50 subscribers received a necklace from the Nobia jewelery collection, but the rest of us still got a little treat with a cute pair of jeweled studs.

I’d have to say this month’s box was really quite fantastic – 5 full size products + a nice little gift – definitely works for me! If you want to subscribe, you can do so here – use the code GLOSSY8 to save 10%!
