After feeling slightly disheartened with my October Birchbox (click here for my full post) when I received an email from Glossy Box offering me three full sized samples as well as their October box, I couldn’t resist! I have heard very mixed reviews of Glossy Box but I thought it was time I tried something new. I love the idea of subscription boxes as it’s a great way of discovering new brands and products, and the value of the box is usually a lot more than the price you pay which is always good news.
Glossy Box is a monthly subscription which costs £10.00 plus P&P. Their boxes usually contain a mixture of full sized products and sample sizes, but this months box is made up of five full sized products. When this lovely pink box arrived on my door step I was super excited to see what was inside!
Lanolips Hand Cream (£8.99) – Hand cream is not usually my thing but this being antibacterial as well as intensely hydrated will be great for me to use whilst at working as I’m constantly in & out of gloves as well as washing my hands. It is a really generous size so I will definitely be keeping this one in my handbag.
Nicka K Blending sponge (£6.50) – I’ve actually been considering purchasing a Beauty Blender so this product came at the perfect time. The dome shape is said to work really well so reaching the nooks around the nose to create a streak free finish.
So Susan Highlighting Pencil (£15.00) – This is a new brand for me, and also a totally new concept. I think I will use this peachy hued highlight for highlighting my brows and the inner corner of my eyes.
Talika Photo-Hydra Day (£24.85) – I always love trying new skincare products, especially more luxury brands. This moisturiser is deeply hydrating and also contains plumping Hyaluronic acid to keep your complexion hydrated and perfectly primed. I think this will work well to prep my skin before wearing a full face of make-up so I look forward to trying it out.
Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Curl Mascara (£17.95) – If you have been reading my blog recently you’ll know I have been looking for a new mascara, so it seems as though Glossy Box read my mind. I love the cute packaging of this product, it instantly grabbed my attention.
I also received my three extra products on the same day, also I’m not sure I will get as much use for these! The products were Yves Rocher Cocoa & Raspberry hand cream, Bella Pierre super gloss in the shade Clementine Citrus and Toni&Guy Shine Gloss serum.
All in all I was very impressed with Glossy Box. The presentation of the box was really simple and sleek, and the products in my box were all things I will get lots of use from. The total value of this month’s box was £73.29, which is crazy considering how much the subscription costs. I am definitely going to keep this subscription rolling for a few months as I’m really impressed so far.
