Ow it is that time of the month again. I know it's been a while since I posted a beauty box opening as I have been contemplating for a few months now whether or not to cancel my subscriptions. I can now confirm I have. There is only so many samples any girl can use, even a beauty junkie and I do think it is about time I riffled through them all to either bin or keep.
So what did I get this month. As always the pink box enclosed five beauty products wrapped up in black tissue and tied with a ribbon. There is the monthly beauty tips magazine and also a card to explain each product. This months theme was "Sweet Treats" and if the truth be told I was expecting some form of chocolate surprise, if that be edible or scented.
Emite Make Up Brush- I got sent a lip brush which you can clearly see may have something that looks suspiciously like eye shadow. You would be correct in your observation. I've been using this as an eye liner brush and it works really well. Just shows don't judge a book by its cover.
Retail: £17 buy at www.emitemakeup.com/
MeMeMe Cosmetics Highlighter- *sigh* another MeMeMe product from Glossybox this time in the form of a highlighter. In my house this has been mistaken for a nail polish many times and I can see why. I haven't tried this yet and truthfully am not in any hurry too.
Retail: £5.50 buy at www.mememecosmetics.co.uk
MONU Spa Massage and Body Oil- I actually don't own a massage oil, I know shocking. I was really happy to receive this but I don't think the fella feels the same. I have had a quick try and I absolutely love it. The smell is divine with a strong scent of lemon and a hint of ginger, relaxation is just around the corner. The oil heats up on contact to the skin and leaves me feeling silky smooth.
Retail: £25 for 100ml buy at www.monushop.co.uk
QV Skincare- This little wash claims to be soap free and super nice to sensitive skin. As any of my regular readers will know I have a huge pain in the backside from my skin so I don't mix my skincare up very often. I will be saving this for a "I'm living of beans this week type of time".
Retail: £6.06 for 250ml buy at www.qvskincare.co.uk
TRESemme Dry Shampoo- Last product in the box and a full size is this instant refresh dry shampoo. I'm a lover of non water shampoo on those I cant be bothered just wear your Pj's sort of days.
Retail: £4.99 buy at www.tresemme.co.uk
Overall the box was OK not the best or worse. It did help me make my decision to cancel as I do not feel as excited as I used too when the postman turns up. If you would like to give this beauty box a try then you can sign up here www.glossybox.co.uk/ for £10.00 + p&p.
What do you think of Glossybox? Has the quality dropped?
