Glossybox is usually my favourite subscription box, and after seeing the sneak preview product I was sure this would be a great one. As it is I’m torn on my feelings for what could have been a great box but unfortunately turned into a bit of a let down.
There are five products this month (three full size) and I got a bonus as I’ve been a subscriber for one year now.
Mitchell and Peach Body Cream
I wasn’t at all excited when I first saw this body cream but actually the smell won me over in an instant! It’s so deliciously natural smelling with a whole host of organic oils and extracts including lavender, rose, vanilla, sweet violet, coconut along with English honey and shea butter. Free of parabens, SLS and synthetic colouring this is a really lovely addition to the box.
£36 for 180ml from MitchellandPeach.com
Sleek Pout Polish in Chocolate Kiss
I was so excited about this when I saw it in the sneak peek but WHY did it have to be in the most disgusting poo-brown colour ever. Am I the only one who thinks brown lipstick the most dated and awful thing? I love that it has SPF15 and I’m a big fan of pretty much everything Sleek make but I don’t think I’ll ever find any use or wear in this colour unfortunately.
£4.49 from Sleekmakeup.com
Bellapierre Cosmetics Shimmer Powder in SP002 Twilight
Another product that could have been amazing and unfortunately just happens to be in a colour I really don’t think I will use. Amie got a gorgeous dreamy dark blue shimmer in hers (which I am totally 100% jealous of!) but I got this sandy gold. Though it’s pretty enough I just can’t see myself getting much wear out of this shade. I do however like that it is 100% pure mica.
£12.99 from Bellapierre.co.uk
Vita Liberata pHenomonal 2-3 Week Tan Lotion
Nope. Do not want. Not only are these tiny samples but I have never ever in my life used fake tan, nor do I intend to! I fully enjoy being as pale as possible all year round and really cannot ever imagine a time where I would want to even test this out for lulz.
2 x 3ml Samples
£37.50 for 150ml from Vitaliberata.com
Dove Hair Therapy Intensive Repair 60 Second Treatment Shot
I love the idea of these bonus little treatments but there never seems to be quite enough for my long thick hair! Still it’s enough to give it a try, especially at it advises you to use it only on the ends of your hair.
£1.49 from Superdrug.com
Green and Black’s Organic Milk Chocolate
Finally I received a tiny chocolate bar as a thank you for subscribing over a year ago, which was a lovely surprise!
So overall not an amazing box for me (though it could have been with different shades in the two full size make-up products!) but not a completely terrible one either.
If you want a Glossybox of your very own you can order one here for £10 (+ P&P)
Totally hellbent for almost getting it right
