Unboxing + Review: Glow Getter Spring 2017

glow getter box spring 2017

 

Hello friends! There’s a new subscription box in town and it’s called Glow Getter!

Glow Getter (http://www.glowgetter.net) is a seasonal subscription box that ships to your door quarterly as the seasons change. You get four boxes a year and each box contains six or more full-sized products. 

Glow Getter is not your typical beauty box. In fact, it leans more towards being a lifestyle box because it features everything from beauty products to accessories to lifestyle and wellness items. Everything which is seasonally appropriate, of course!

This subscription costs $56.00 CAD per season which includes all taxes and shipping. While this is a Canadian subscription service, it is also available to those who are in the United States.

I was super excited to see this subscription box come to life. I am in a number of beauty groups with Natasha, Glow Getter’s founder, so my anticipation was high with this one! I was very happy to see it in my mailbox!

The Spring Glow Getter box contains items from both Canada and the United States. It is a mix of beauty, skincare, body care, jewelry, lifestyle and wellness products. Whew, that was a mouthful! 🙂 Totally worth it because what a great mix for spring! Let’s take a peek at what I received. There were eight products and a bonus item so we have a lot to go through today!

The first item in my box was a Coconut Cream Bath Bomb from Spell Craft Bath ($8.00 CAD). This is a full-sized bath bomb in the shape of a white heart. I’m definitely looking forward to trying this one out. This smells divine! But then again, I adore coconut scents… it reminds me of vacation! And pina coladas. OR my new fave drink that I discovered in Hawaii called a Lava Flow. Delish! 😉 These bath bombs claim to keep your skin smooth and hydrating because they contain the following oils: grapeseed, coconut and vitamin E. This looks like it’s the perfect thing to use during the colder and drier months… especially here in Alberta! Please note that other subscribers may have received this product in the scent Pink Sands.

Next up is  an item for your home. This hand poured Soy Candle in Garden Mint from Heirloom Candles ($5.00 CAD, 2 oz). It’s so cute! It is not overly minty or overly floral but it is a good balance. I love this scent because it reminds me of my mint plants in my garden. I love keeping mint in my garden so that I can infuse it in my drinking water. The scent is so fresh! This candle will come in very handy when I try the bath bomb. Soothing, relaxing baths and candles are complimentary and go so great together!

The first beauty item I received was the Manna Kadar Paradise Blush ($25.00 CAD). If you can recall, I received this in my January ipsy and I already very much like it! (A swatch of this shade can also be found on the ipsy unboxing post.). It’s a very nice pearlized pink blush that you can lightly put on your cheekbone or build up for more colour. It’s very versatile in that manner. This is already in my vanity and in rotation so I may keep this one as a back up!

Next, let’s talk skincare! I received a full-sized bottle of Delia Organics’ Restore Treatment ($40.00 CAD, 30 ml). This is a very light and very quick absorbing facial oil. You don’t need to use very much as a little goes a long way! I love that this is 100% natural and that it’s fragrance free. This will appeal to a lot of people! It is said to soften fine lines and wrinkles and hydrate your skin… among a number of other things! I can definitely say that it does absorb very quickly and that it is not at all greasy.  I am finding it very nice on my skin. I don’t often use facial oils but this one has impressed me so I will continue to use it.

The wellness product in January was a Larabar in the Peanut Butter flavour ($3.00 CAD, 48 g). I have never tried this energy bar before but I’ve seen this around at Shoppers Drug Mart and my local grocery establishments so it’s easy to get ahold of if you end up falling in love with it. I would be lying if I didn’t say I was curious! I Plus, I adore peanut butter so I am happy I received this flavour! I will likely take this bar to work for those hunger emergencies during busy days where I am running from meeting to meeting. It doesn’t happy every day but it does happen! Or I will try it before a workout. We’ll see!

I love jewelry! So I was super happy to see that a Day and Co Jewelry Hand Stamped Bracelet ($24.00 CAD) was included in the Spring Box! Each bracelet is hand stamped with a different saying and were available in three metals: copper, aluminum and brass. The one I received was in brass and it says “Let Your Light Shine”. So cute and so inspirational! It is very light and it does bend so if you’re like me and have super small wrists, you can do a little bit of adjustments to make it fit so that it won’t fall off. The fact that it came with a cleaning cloth is great, too. Can I just say that this is also a local brand from right here in Alberta? I love being able to support local businesses so I’m super happy to see one of them make it into the Glow Getter box!

I did receive another makeup product. The Skone Cosmetics Luxe Doubler Eye and Lip Pencil in Girlypink ($16.00 CAD) is a multi-purpose pencil! Lip liner, eyeliner, lipstick, eyeshadow… you name it, you can  use it that way! But knowing my personal preference when it comes to pink shades, I will likely only use this on my lips. It’s very rare that I use these bolder pinks on my eyes. Girlypink will work with a lot of my rose and berry lip colours.

I have used this next skin care product before and I really do love this product! The Vasanti Cosmetics BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator ($6.00 CAD, 20 g deluxe size) is an amazing exfoliating cleanser! I have used up one of these tubes before and I’m on my second one now. I’m glad that I now have a backup for what was my backup! 😉 At 20 g in size, this is the only non-full-sized product in this box but that’s okay! In my experience, my last tube lasted a long, long time. A little goes a long way for sure. I find this to be such a gentle scrub that works and I found it to work well on my skin. This was already a big fave of mine so I was happy to see this. As much as I love being exposed to new products, I also love to see favorites, as well.

The last item I am going to write about is a bonus item in this box. It is another product from Skone Cosmetics and it is their Smudger Brush ($20.00 CAD). This brush is a lot smaller than my other smudger brushes but that’s a good thing. This one looks like it will be great to use for smaller details such as applying or smudging eyeliner or for add some detail to the corners of your eyes. The bristles feels dense but are soft so that if you do use it on your eyes, you’re not poking your eyes out with prickly bristles. I think I will really like this brush!

Oh wait! I am not quite done yet. Some of you may have noticed this in my Instagram teaser post but there is something pink in the middle of the box. It is shaped kinda like a diamond but I wasn’t really sure what it was for. So I asked Natasha and it turns out that it serves multiple purposes. Not only does it help keep the box from getting crushed while it’s on it’s way to you, once you receive it, it can also be used in a variety of ways. You can flip it on its side and use it to keep your Beauty Blender clean or put a tea light underneath it and it becomes decorative.

I also love that these two tea recipe cards were included in the box. This is a great idea! I love teas myself so I will definitely be trying out these detox tea recipes. 

And that, my friends, wraps up our unboxing the the Spring 2017 Glow Getter box today. The total value of this box, including the bonus, was $147.00 CAD which I think is fab! It is worth it for the amount I paid and I found the products to be of quality. I was super impressed with the variety you can find in this box! It really does feature a little bit of everything which is fab! I was super happy with this inaugural Spring 2017 box from Glow Getter that I am really looking forward to seeing what is in store for us for summer!
