Good afternoon WordPress friends!
Last Saturday I received my first Glossybox!
I’d tried Birchbox twice and was painfully unimpressed… keep on reading to find out what I thought about Glossybox.
Firsty, oh my gosh, how pretty is this floral print box?
‘Let your dreams blossom’ such a lovely little detail… And is now making me think of Cheryl Blossom from Riverdale.
This month I would be sent either the floral or fruity edition of the box, and thankfully I received the one I wanted.
The presentation is sweet, the tissue paper and ribbon is a nice touch.
Also, everything has a bit of pink in it; I love when everything matches/colour coordinates.
Original Source: Raspberry and Rose Shower Gel
RRP £2.30 (Full size)
The first item I picked up was the Original Source Raspberry and Rosewater shower gel and it’s smells absolutely delicious. I’ve used this shower gel a few days in a row, and my bathroom smelt incredible after. One squeeze of this goes a long way, and foams up beautifully. I’ve used the original source products before, but this one is definitely the winner.
Merci Handy : Flower Power Hand Cleansing Gel
RRP £3.00 (Full size)
Next, we have the Merci handy flower power love and hand cleansing gel. It has a subtle but sweet and clean smell. The packaging is a nice change to most pocket sized antibacs, a little more feminine and small but still a decent size.
The gel has a mild scent and leaves your hands clean, without them feeling dried out.
Dr.Paw Paw: Hot Pink Balm.
RRP £6.95 (Full size)
From the description I though the balm
would be a soft blush but it’s quite a strong, bright hot pink. A tiny dot is plenty for a rosy summer tint to the cheeks.
I much prefer a creme blush rather than a powder, but haven’t found the right shade yet, this little beauty is perfect though. I’m looking forward to trying a sweep of this on my lips in the summer.
Dr.Botanicals: Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask
RRP Deluxe mini 30ml worth £14, Full size 50ml RRP £19
The next product is one that I’ve received before from Birchbox. I wasn’t blown away by it but was happy enough. This is what I wrote in my Birchbox review for the product.
The cream had a very faint scent, which unfortunately smelt nothing like sweet pomegranate. I used this mask on my face twice in the week, and it left my face feeling refreshed, very soft and hydrated. The mask was thick and silky.
I would recommend buying this cream, although it was slightly on the pricey side, retailing at £14.90 for the 30ml (full size) tube.
Nivea: Micellair Professional Makeup Remover
RRP £3.99 Full Size
I LOVE this make up remover! I will definitely be buying it once I run out.
It is the gentlest and quickest remover I’ve ever used. To remove a dark smokey eye, and layers of black mascara, I only had to use 2 cotton pads on each eye, to leave my eyes refreshed, and without scrubbing or irritation. Amazing!
Jeanne Arthes: Let your dreams blossom Eau De Parfum
£20.99 Full size
The last product, is my favourite.
It is a 30 ml glass spray that is sweet, light, floral, and the perfect size for my handbag. A lovely scent for summer that’s not overpowering, but has a long lasting scent. I’ve only had to use 2 spritz to have the scent stay with me all day.
I couldn’t be more pleased with this beauty box. I’m extremely impressed with not only the products, but the quality of them. To receive them in such a beautifully presented (and sturdy) box, is a bonus, it was like opening a birthday present.
I received my first box at a discount price of £7 + £3.25 postage and packaging.
Every month onwards, subscription costs £10 per month + £3.25 postage and packaging.
I’d recommend this beauty box, not only for the quality of the product but the fantastic price as well.
I can’t wait to see what I’ll receive in my May box… But of course, I’ll let you know!
