Why I’m cancelling my beauty boxes

January 19, 2015
Glossybox January 2014

After what feels like forever, I’ve finally decided to cancel my Glossybox. Glossybox was my first subscription box, and to be honest I’ve had a good run, but lately I’ve found myself getting less and less excited by the service, and after one too many disappointing boxes I’ve decided to take a break from not only Glossybox, but also Birchbox, Love me Beauty and You Beauty Discovery. One of the main reasons is that my subscription beauty boxes were racking…

Glossybox September 2014

Glossybox September 2014

  Glossybox have fallen into my bad books lately. Not only have I received some terrible customer service but also I’ve found the past two boxes a little lacklustre. Considering I was singing their praises to the high heavens till recently, I still have hope that they will be pulling out some awesome boxes again but for now I can’t say that I’m particularly impressed. The September 2014 Glossybox is designed by Karen Millen, and though I can honestly say…

Glossybox August 2014 Review

I know I cancelled by subscription to Glossybox, but I’ve still ended up with two boxes thanks to my hoard of Glossydots meaning they were free of charge. Since returning from festival season I’ve managed to come back to a Vegan Kind box, Birchbox and this month’s Glossybox so I’ve definitely been spoilt rotten. We all know my track record with Glossybox has been a little rocky as of late and I’ve had a tendency to be severely disappointed with…

Stars and Stripes Glossybox July 2014

Glossybox July 2014

I have returned from hibernation! There are plenty of reasons why I took a little break from blogging and left HBFL in the very capable hands of Amie for a few weeks, but I shan’t go into them now for there are shiny treats inside this pretty stars and stripes box and playing with make-up is always more fun than waxing lyrical about mushy feelings! This is an awesome box with four full size products and a generous 15ml sample,…

Glossybox June 2014 Review

June 16, 2014
glossybox-june-14

This is the last of my beauty boxes to arrive this month, and Gem and I have been waiting on tenterhooks after a few spoilers were going around, but now the wait is over and I can finally see what is in my Glossybox! The first thing I noticed, is that mine was prepared a little more shoddily than the usually impeccable presentation. My Glossybox (GB) ¬†sticker looked as though it had already been peeled off, and everything was just…

Glossybox May 2014 – Summer Beauty Edit With Superdrug

Glossybox May 2014 - Summer Beauty Edit With Superdrug

  Glossybox have been massive teases this month, dropping loads of hints about their upcoming collaboration (we all guessed it would be Superdrug though, right?) but boy was all the suspense worth it! This is hands down my best box ever with a whopping five full sized items and two samples! I’ll use absolutely everything and can honestly say there’s nothing I would change.   Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer This alone is worth more than the cost of…

Gem actually received her Glossybox yesterday, but mine ended up at the post office instead since I’d spent the morning at the gym and there was no one to open the door to the postman. On collecting it today though, I’m pretty pleased with the contents – even if I did sneak a peek at Gem’s yesterday. Whats in the box? Emite Make Up – Lip Brush – L312 (¬£17) I’ve been thinking of buying a high end lip brush…

Glossybox March 2014 Review

  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…

Glossybox February 2014

Here’s yesterday’s Glossybox – I know usually Gem and I swap between us, but unfortunately she is busy on the mainland with Sir Roodington so to avoid it being a further week until you get to view the contents, I’ve defied all sense of normality and just gone for it. (Sorry Gem) This was the “Valentine’s-esque” edition and the box is just so adorable! I love the themed boxes and they look so cute stacked on top of each other.…

Glossybox January 2014

  It seems like only yesterday I was oooing and aaaahing over December’s Glossybox, and already here is the first box of 2014! The first thing of note is that the box itself is bigger and well…glossier! This months theme is “Back to Basics” and contains five products, only one (almost sort of two!) of which is full size.   I have to say I wasn’t all that excited upon first impressions, the lack of a make-up item and the…
