It’s that time again…Glossybox unboxing time! Unlike last month where I took forever to post about it this month I thought I would get this post up ASAP. Before I properly get into the post I’m going to issue a *SPOILER ALERT* only because I have made the mistake of reading other peoples box reviews before I have opened mine leaving me a little disappointed, so just a heads up before I reveal the contents of my box, (I really need to stop the rambling..)
Now I’m not going to lie, my subscription runs out after this month so depending on the contents of this box will depend on whether I decide to resubscribe again! It got off to a very good start; I mean look at the design of the box!! This is something I will happily display in my room for all to see! The design on the front is by Karen Millen and inside is also a £25 off in store voucher when you spend £150. Unusually there is also a sneak peek at next months box too, it seems that it will have a pop art theme.
This months box has three full size products and the other two are very generous sample sizes. I’m not sure if the products in the box are related to Karen Millen at all but there is definitely something for everyone here!
First product is the ModelCo More Brows Fibre Gel, now when it comes to brow products I am always sceptical because usually brands don’t cater well for blondes. I currently use a powder by Avon which isn’t a bad match but it isn’t the quick fix I would like it to be. I’m not joking when I say as soon as I opened the box I had to try it. And what made it even better was the fact that…it’s not only quick and easy…it also matches my brows! Hallelujah! Unlike some products this doesn’t have to much red in it meaning it will suit blondes well. Although I haven’t yet tried Benefit’s Gimmie Brow, (but I would very much like to,) this appears very similar too it, a fibre gel with a short little brush.
If I hadn’t read the card I would have no idea that this is in fact a sample size, it’s crazy! This is 45ml and the full size product would be 125ml! I have never actually tried a hair oil, this is L’Oreal’s Mythic Oil, they’ve always seemed kind of a strange concept, but I’m going to try it out. It smells absolutely amazing, however, I cannot seem to put my finger on what the smell is!
Now I have high hopes for these samples, at £89.99 for the full 180ml of the SkinPep Enzyme and Acid Peel, and £44.99 for the Eye Cream, you’d expect it to work miracles on your skin. My box had two 3.5ml samples of the peeling mask which are worth £6.10 and one 2ml sachet of the eye cream worth £6.49: crazy money! I can almost guarantee a post on what these do to my skin, I am intrigued to see how good these are.
Glossybox can never go wrong with a nail polish, especially one by Nails Inc. This is their Westminster Bridge Matte Top Coat. First off the bottle is beautiful, the white on the frosted glass, I mean look at it! The product itself is good too. I tested it over a Seche polish I had received in a previous Glossybox, left is without the top coat and right is with, perfect autumnal colour don’t you think?
The last thing I received is a Nivea 3in1 Micellar Cleansing Water. Currently I have tried the L’Oreal Micellar Water and also the Garnier, and to be fair, up until I opened the box I had no idea that Nivea had their own. I have always been quite a big Nivea fan, always good for sensitive skin and also my mums go to skincare brand for many years. This is a brilliant thing to receive as my Garnier one is almost all gone; I wonder if this will do better than the other two I have tried!
Well Glossybox have completely won me over with this box, I love everything, (though I am kind of hoping that I don’t really like the SkinPep peel and eye cream or I’m going to be doing a lot of saving up…) A great mix of brands I know and ones I haven’t discovered yet! For the £10 plus p&p this box costs I have received a massive £49.35 worth of products! Not a bad investment at all. I know I said it earlier but I still think the box is beautiful, the design so pretty, and if you can get your hands on this box you really need to!
