*I work as an affiliate for GLOSSYBOX, so if you click and make any purchases from my links, I receive a small commission for this, but still I pay for all my monthly subscription that I share here with you. All opinions are expressly my own.*
What a lovely surprise that I received my October GLOSSYBOX during the actual month of October and actually only the second week in.
Plus, I admit I am loving the contents in this box and so excited to share my beauty box haul for October with you all, because I think all here knows how much I truly do love GLOSSYBOX from all my past reviews and gushing, especially as I did here.
Here is the thing, I have one more month left before my 6 month GLOSSYBOX subscription is up and think I am going to treat myself for the upcoming holidays, because I get so excited getting this still monthly and to be honest it is like a surprise gift once a month to look forward in the mail just for me. I, therefore, fully endorse GLOSSYBOX for the perfect holiday gifts this year for all those who are beauty lovers.
By the way, by the time I get to publish this, my November box actually came, too and am doing a double feature here today with October and November GLOSSYBOX’s
But before I get ahead of myself….
