Glossybox UK NovemberThursday, November 20, 2014
The November 2014 Glossybox has finally arrived and there is nothing more delightful than receiving a box filled with skin loving treats! This months box contains a variety of beauty products which are perfect for protecting yourself from the cold weather. I'm happy and surprised to say that a few of the brands within this box are new discoveries for me!
Lollipops Make Up Eye Pencil - full size product, RRP €14
Lollipops is a Parisian accessories brand but since 2010 they have introduced a gorgeous and affordable makeup collection. I got the chance to try out one of their products, a “Close your eyes, go dancing!” pencil. It applies a deep metallic and shiny colour and has a nice long-lasting texture. Eye pencils are always handy to get from a beauty box as I am not a big shopper when it comes to eye make up (except for mascaras). This pencil has a couple of good properties - it is retractable (no need to sharpen) and it contains vitamin E with anti-aging and anti-radical action.
Burt's Bees Lip Shine - full size product, RRP £6.99
I love natural cosmetics and Burt's Bees is a brand I really enjoy using. I have tried their lip products before and I've not been disappointed. This time I got my hands on this lip gloss in shade Pucker. Firstly I have to say I love the colour; I prefer darker shades (reds, plums) in the winter season so this is such a perfect pick for me. This lip gloss is also enriched with moisturising and nourishing Apricot Wax which makes lips sweet and super shiny. It contains a bit of Sunflower Seed Oil to deliver soft lips.
H20+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment - sample size 8ml, RRP £27.50 for 50ml
This oil-free gel delivers deep hydration with phospholipids, multivitamin complex and moisturising marine botanicals. It is perfect for any skin type - oily, dry, combination or even sensitive! It contains Wakame, Sea Lettuce and Fennel which rapidly replenish depleted skin and fill surface lines with a surge of moisture. Vitamins A and E help skin resist daily damage from environmental stress. In one sentence - this gel is an amazing treatment for your skin! I have read loads of reviews about this product on their website and seems like this really is a miracle product!
MONU Skincare Firming Fiji Facial Oil - sample size 30ml, RRP £26 for 100ml
This MONU facial oil contains plant oils such as Hazel Seed, Rosewood and Apricot Seed. It helps the face feel toned, firmed, calmed and dehydrated and it can be applied at night for an intensive treat. I am excited to try it out as I have been looking for a new product for my night time regime. This facial oil is delicate on sensitive skin as it contains natural ingredients and has a paraben free formulation.
Umberto Giannini Tousled Salt Spray - full size product, £6 for 200ml
Umberto Giannini is an award winning haircare product from Birmingham in the UK. It suits all hair types and gives a super sexy look as well as a perfect lived-in texture. I love salt sprays so much, I couldn't resist trying it the same day I got my box! I like how the spray gives the hair a lighter texture without making it look heavy. I prefer a more natural look so this is the perfect product for 'beach curly hair'. I've used Toni&Guy Sea Salt Spray before and I have found that the Umberto Giannini spray works the same way and is more affordable.
The box also included a Best Secret personal invitation and a £20 gift card. Best Secret is a true 'by invitation only' shopping community which means you cannot directly register for membership, nor will you find an invitation link on the Internet. You can only become a member by personal recommendation of an existing member. It has over 1000 designers, over a million products and more than 500 new deals every day. It seems like a shopping paradise! Thank you, Glossybox!
I think this months Glossybox has been surprisingly good! For only £10 + P&P, it is an amazing price to pay for 3 full size products, 2 (winter essential) testers and a secret club invitation + £20 gift card.
