This is my last Valentine’s themed post this year, I promise, it is of course my February Glossybox. The ‘Love Edition’ according to Glossybox, and by the looks of the box it most definitely is. The card says this box holds their beauty soulmates, with four out of the five being full size products, the box didn’t look as if it was going to disappoint; and it didn’t.
As you can see the inside looks pretty impressive, the black shredded paper is replaced by white and the inside of the box its now pink. Also there was a pack of mini Lovehearts, needless to say they did not last long! So what was in the box?
First in my box was the Wilkinson Sword Hydro Silk. I usually use the shavers that you don’t need shaving foam for so I can’t be clumsy and cut myself as easily. The Hydro Silk looks quite interesting; apparently once used it will hydrate the skin for up to 2 hours as there is some kind of ‘Water-Activated Moisturising Serum.’ Needless to say once I’ve bought some shaving foam I’ll be seeing what I think of it.
If you’re a fan of the 50 Shades franchise you’ll probably know they have makeup out as well as the film. In my box I got the Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow in Fifty Shades. It’s a gorgeous sparkly dark grey which can be used wet or dry.
A peculiar packaged product that was in every box was a Royal Apothic Tinties in Coral. This is a tinted lip butter which adds a pretty coral sheen to the lips. Currently I’m using up my Body Shop Mango Lip Butter, (it is divine, comment if you’d like a post,) but once that is gone I shall be putting this to the test.
Ah…So Susan a brand that comes up again and again in Glossybox and has yet to wow me. This Rose Quartet Lip & Cheek Palette falls very much under this category. I’ll get my issues out of the way first: 1. The palette hardly shuts. 2. It’s such an awkward size to hold, my finger touch the product. 3. It could so easily have a mirror. 4. What is the point of that brush? 5. Why is the product so unevenly filled into the compact. Okay, rant over, it is multipurpose but I doubt it will be hydrating enough to use on my lips as products like this usually aren’t as multipurpose as they like to think.
Before I say anything else: This. Smells. Amazing! It is the got2be All Star 10 in 1 Styling Treatment. I’m not the kind of person who spends aaages on their hair; it gets a brush and sometimes a plait or two but nothing particularly special. This I will try as it claims that it can do 10 things!
I am pretty impressed with most of the box and the total value is just over £45 which is pretty good and there is a nice selection of products! Next months box is Spa themed so pamper lovers sign up quick!
