Glossybox, monthly favourites

November 2019 Glossybox

Good evening friends!

My glossybox came at the right time, my goodness I have not been well this past week… but it’s that time of year, so let’s just power through it!

It’s a heavy one this month and back to the classic baby pink box!

Last months box was possibly my favourite, and I didn’t know what to expect for this month… but, for Novemver, we have been treated to 4 full sized products, 1 deluxe mini, and 2 extra treats.

Hask Exotoics – Hair Oil (Full size) RRP £2.49

Yes I shoved this under my nose straight away, I love hair care, especially oils. I washed my hair last night, and ran the oil through my ends once it was towel dried. I slept with damp hair and woke up to absolutely gorgeous soft and glossy hair. I strongly reccomend this little beauty!

Mudmasky – Leave me on Winter (Full size) Mask RRP £9.90

Exactly what I need, my skin has been so dry recently, and this should do the trick. A rich mask that isn’t too thick and heavy when applying. I applied a few dabs this morning on my T zone before my make up, and has kept my skin feeling soft and nourished whilst my make up staying looking fresh.

Cetaphil – Gentle Skin cleanser (Deluxe mini) RRP £1.10

This tiny little bottle is adorable, even if I didnt know what it was at first. I have quite a few cleansers at the moment and feel like it’s a bit of a waste opening another one, so I will pass this along to a friend.

Rituals – The Ritual of Ayurveda Soothing Hand Balm (Full size) RRP £9.90

Oh damn! This hand balm is so thick and rubs in without them feeling greasy, just nourished and soft. The scent is amazing, The packaging is just stunning

Also, the perfect size for my handbag!

Offblak – Fruit Tea’s £0.89 each Extra Treat!

I love a cuppa tea, in every variety! These teas were a lovely little treat.

I’m not a massive fan of ginger, but had to give one of these a whirl, so I tried the ‘Brighten Up’ – Forest Fruits and Ginger.

I know you didnt need to see half a dozen photos… but I think its mesmerising to watch. And it tasted D licious! I like my tea sweet, and this has such a light fruity sweet blend.

Kandi Cosmetics – Glow up primer and setting spray (Full size) RRP £20.00

This was the first product I locked my eyes on, but the last I opened as thought it would excite me the most, just by looking at the size (let’s keep it clean people!)

Wow, just wow! This is beautiful! I love a bit of sparkle any time of day.

This primer/setting spray is perfect for this season, one spritz will leave a light misty glow on your skin, just enough to give you that seasonal sparkle, but subtle enough that you dont look like a disco ball!

July 2019 Glossybox

Good morning friends!

This month, Glossy box has given us the ‘Holiday Haul’, everything you need for your summer holidays.

I received my box the day I’d returned from holiday, which is actually a positive, as it helped to sweep away the holiday blues.

The Holiday Haul gives us 4 travel size items, and one full size items.

Moroccanoil – Moroccan oil treatment
Travel size 25ml RRP £13.45
Full size 100ml RRP £31.85

I’m a sucker for a hair oil, I love nothing more than glossy hair.

I used just a little more than recommended. This oil instantly made my hair silky. After I’d dried my hair, it was shiny, smooth and smelt amazing.

Palmers – Natural Bronze Body Lotion
Travel size 20ml RRP £2.49
Full size 250ml £5.99

I love Palmers products, and always have a bottle handy at home or in my handbag.
I’ve just returned from holiday in Portugal, so I’m not in need of a tan at the moment, but maybe once mine fades a little I can give this a go. I haven’t tried one of their tanning products before, but not doubt it will leave you with a gorgeous glow.

Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel – Peel off face mask
Travel size 10ml RRP £1
Full size 50ml RRP £4

The Tea tree and witch hazel mask takes me back to being a teenager when this is what most of the face masks were made from, I mean, tea tree or the fruity face masks that feel like you’ve put a full on smoothie on your face.

There’s something so satisfying about peeling off a mask, especially one like this that leaves your face feeling clean and refreshed.

Omorovicza – Cleansing Foam
Travel size 30ml RRP £18
Full size 150ml RRP £52

I’m always happy to try new products, and to find an item that I know I’ll use often. This cleansing foam worked beautifully, there isn’t really a downside to using this, but it is so similar to ones that I’ve used before so, it doesn’t really stand out or give any different result than others I’ve tried.

Manna Kadar Cosmetics – Bloom Mascara Full Size RRP £23

This mascara is incredible, it has such a thick and fluffy wand. The only other mascara that I’ve used that would compare to this is the Benefit bad gal bang mascara.

£23 may be a little steep for mascara but I think it’s likely that I’ll be treating myself and purchasing this one again!

Please let me know if you have tried any of these products, and what you think of them.

Glossybox June 2019

Good morning friends!

It’s almost the weekend, and finally time for me to publish my Glossybox review… apologies for the delay!

Pro Perfecting Collagen Touche

Éclat Primer RRP – £85.00

Now, the first product is a dream. This silky, light weight primer allows my make up to glide on effortlessly.

But once I run out, I don’t think it’s likely that I’ll be spending £85.00 on another tube, which is a shame, as this may possible be the best primer I’ve ever used!!!

Meech N Mia

Eyeshadow Chubby Stix – RRP £12.99

Eyeshadow stick is extremely soft and easy to apply considering it looks like a chunky hard pencil. Although I did get long wear from this pencil, and it was full size, £12.99 is a little steep in price for my liking, and I’m sure you could find another pencil just as shimmery and creamy but for a fraction of the price.

Model Co

Lip Creme matte – RRP £15.00

Get out of here…. the lipcreme smells like peaches! The colour is a burnt orange. This isn’t a shade that I’ve really worn before, but is now one that I’ll be keen to reach for.

The perfect shade, beautiful for day and night.

Sleek Make up

Face Form Contouring and blush Palette – £9.99

This pallette was available in two shades, fair or light I recieved the ‘fair’ kit. It’s not often that you can actually make use of all of the products in a kit, and that they all suit your skin tone. This pallette certainly saves some room in my make up bag when I’m out and about, the colours compliment each other beautifully, you get amazing coverage, though it’s not too heavy, and it includes a mirror as well!


Deep Conditioning Treatment – RRP £2.49

I’ve never used a charcoal hair mask before. In all honesty, the mention of charcoal beauty products instantly makes me think of the hundred of videos online of people painfully peeling off a charcoal mask.

Am I the only one who thinks that?

Anywho, I used this treatment in one, and my goodness, my hair felt absolutely glorious! My hair was left looking shiny, silky, and with the most heavenly scent. I’ll definitely have to pick up a few more of these treatments!

Just a side note, take care not to drop any in the shower, and if you do, don’t stand on it… its extremely slippery! Whoopsy!

Safe to say that Glossybox has done it again! I adore the thrill of receiving this pretty pink mystery box every month, and to not only try new brands, but new colours and products that I wouldn’t of otherwise!
