I don’t know why but I just love seasonal subscription boxes! Perhaps it is because they give you an opportunity to try so many products from makeup to lifestyle and fitness products… sometimes even snack goodies!
One such box is the Canadian subscription 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. 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.
The summer Glow Getter box’s theme is called Summer Heat. The product card says:
Whether you are taking in some sun, having a date night out or enjoying the local market, we have what you need to soak in the Summer heat!
This is only my second season with this subscription so this is only my second box. I was so impressed with the Spring Box (see that unboxing here) that I couldn’t wait to see what summer had in store! Well the wait is now over! Let’s take a peek at what was in the Summer box. Once you see everything, you’ll see that the product card was spot on!
The first two items we will take a look at are from a company called Jersey Shore Cosmetics. I am already a big fan of their Mongongo lip balm so I was excited to try more from this brand!
The first one is the Jersey Shore Anti-Aging Sunscreen Stick SPF 30 ($29.00 CAD). How convenient is that? This mineral sunscreen stick is 100% natural and super portable. Keep in in your purse or beach bag and you’re good to go! All you need to do is apply it to your skin and blend it in. Easy peasy. This is a great sunscreen to use on your face, protecting you from both UVA and UVB rays. The downside is that it is not waterproof or water resistant so you should reapply it often – they recommend every two hours. Still, I can’t wait to try it! I will take it with me on my summer holiday. And yes, this is a full sized product. 🙂
From natural sun protection to natural makeup, the second item is the Jersey Shore Natural Radiant Gold Leaf Highlighter ($29.00 CAD). This is also full sized. Being a highlighter junkie (yes, I’m not just a lip junkie :D), I was super happy to see this! You can use this on your cheekbones, nose, lips and even shoulders for a more luminous all over summer look. The shade Gold Leaf (it also comes in the shade Platinum) contains edible gold leaf and gives your skin a sun-touched glow. Again, this product is 100% natural and is paraben and petrochemical free. You know, all the nasties. I’m always happy to try new natural products.
The next item I received is a homemade product from Spellcraft Bath. One of their specialty products, the Spellcraft Bath Berry Mint Foot Scrub ($8.50 CAD) contains poppy seeds that will gently exfoliate your feet and peppermint oil to cool and refresh them. It is 100% sulfate, paraben and gluten free. This arrived just in time for me because my feet are in serious need for some TLC! As I love wearing sandals and flip flops when the weather is warmer, my feet are feeling a little bit rough. I can’t wait to try this! It also smells so good!
Have I ever mentioned my love for lip products? I’m sure I have… many times. Of course my love of lippies includes lip glosses. The Evelyn Iona Natural and Organic Lip Gloss in the shade Susan ($28.00 CAD) is great! I really love the formulation because it’s not at all sticky and it feels moisturizing and creamy on my lips. Susan is a soft pink shade and it is beautiful! It is not crazy and bold so you can pretty much wear it every day. I also love the natural ingredients it contains, such as, bark extract (tightens and plumps), Vitamin E (moisturizes), oregano (antioxidant), coconut oil (anti-aging) and shea butter (heals). Because it is a lip gloss, I don’t really expect it to have staying power. So great! I am so happy with this lippie!
While this was not on the product card, I also received the Evelyn Iona Bamboo Concealer Brush ($15.50 USD). This is a small concealer brush. I’m very curious to see how it performs as it’s the smallest concealer brush I have seen… it reminds me of a lip brush.
Moving away from beauty for just a minute, let’s take a look at the fitness item I received. The Sally Yoga/Running Headband from Beautiful Boundaries ($8.59 CAD) is handmade and made from nylon/spandex. It is super comfortable to wear and it’s breathable too. The design is cute with flowers and bright colours. The way the headband is designed is that it is wider in the front and narrower in the back which helps create a non-slip design. I will have to try it next time I work out. 🙂
Gotta admit, I love discovering great indie nail brands. I received a Beyond The Nail nail polish in the shade Glow Getter ($8.00 CAD). Dare I guess that this summery, bright orange shade was named after this box? 😉 How great is that? While I probably wouldn’t choose a colour like this on my own, it sure looks like a fun summery shade to pull off on your toes!
Now who can resist a healthy snack? It would be a good one before or after a work out. I’m talking about KIND bars ($2.00 CAD each). I have seen these in stores before but have never tried them. I received two flavours: Almond + Coconut and Almond Sea Salt + Dark Chocolate. Both of these look so good! I’m sure they are tasty and delicious. Can’t wait to try these.
With all these goodies from the summer box, you need something to carry it all, right? How about a black tote bag from Small Glow that says “Goal, Smash, Repeat” ($22.00 CAD)? I think that would be perfect! This is a good sized tote bag to carry a lot and the gold lettering looks fab. I love this fun tote bag!
The final item in the summer box was a Glitter Silisponge from Get Into the Limelight ($24.00 CAD). I love my beauty sponges but I have always been curious about silisponges. I have used this one a couple of times now and it works well on my skin. I can’t complain. I am using it as directed, dabbing and blending concealer and foundation on my skin. I love how easy it is to use and also how easy it is to clean! I think I will continue to use this. I still love my BeautyBlender but this is a good product too.
And that’s it! You have now seen everything in my Summer 2017 Glow Getter Box. The total value for this box was $161.09 CAD – and that’s not even including the mysterious brush that snuck in there and wasn’t on the product card. That’s pretty much three times the value I paid. I had so much fun unboxing this one and I’m super happy with everything! I don’t see one thing that I won’t use (or eat! ;)) so I found that this box was worth it for me.
Summer boxes are still available if you subscribe today so if you like what you see, don’t delay! 🙂
