This box was disappointing. While it featured 3 full size items, the clay mask was a repeat from my bonus item from the previous month, the polish chipped rapidly for me, and the final full-size item was Manna Kadar. I did like the Lancome and thought the Pureology was a high value favorite of many.
Review: September 2017 GLOSSYBOX Review
The NIA24 & Dermalogica were amazing items, but BOXYCHARM took this month easily with the palette and MAC product. More, please!
