I think I will keep the subscription for another month, just to see what the next one is like. I have a Boudoir Privé box on it’s way this week to see what that’s like as well. The same concept as Glossy box but apparently with more high end products in.
After waiting nearly a month for my first Glossy Box it finally arrived. I signed up just after they dispatched last months orders so just missed out and have had to wait an aaaaage for this. If you’ve been living in a cave and don’t know what Glossy Box is, it’s a £10 beauty box which you subscribe to (you can opt out at any time) and they automatically post you one once a month. It contains sample sizes of the products although there is rumour they give you a full size one now and again. I’m pretty gutted I missed out on Septembers box as it had things I would definitely use inside.
Anyway here’s my box (wheeeey);
As you can see, it’s in a really nice little gift box you can use again….
I think the reason they’re so popular is because it does feel like you’re opening a present. You get a card inside that tells you more about the products and also the price of the full size versions of the products.
There were 6 things inside this months (7 if you include the little dermolgica wash bag thing)
This was the teeniest of all the samples, its a lip balm (and a bit of a bobby bonus in the box). But it’s probably the thing I’ll use the most.
And there were 3 small perfume samples in little vials. Which are handy.
-Dermalogica Thermafoliant – This is a really nice little exfoliant, you could tell it was a very good quality one as the texture was very fine and had a very unusual but nice smell. It did make my skin feel lovely afterwards.
-Dermalogica Recover Masque – This was a little disappointing. It smells strange, and not in a good way. I also didn’t notice very much difference afterwards.
*I was a bit miffed as to why the Dermalogica items were ‘age smart’ being 25 and looking around 15 I need the opposite of that…..
-Leighton Denny Nail Polish – A good quality varnish, but they sent me ‘babydoll’ which is a vivid but baby pink tone…. I put it on to see if it looked any better…. but nah. It’s still pink, a bit vile.
-Stila eyeliner – I love the colour of this! It’s shit green with goldy shimmer in. Unfortunately I find eyeliners that are kind of crayony a bit crap. They never stick and unless it’s black I tend not to use it. I might use it occasionally on the lower lid on days I can be bothered to make an effort.
-Robert Piguet perfumes – Very good little samplers all in tiny little vials. Great to stick in your bag as back up scent for when you get worried you smell a little funky. Apart from one that smells like old women (the red one)
