Glossybox UK - Love EditionSunday, February 15, 2015
My February Glossybox arrived a couple of days ago and only now have I had the chance to review it. As this month we celebrate Valentine's Day, Glossybox has released a LOVE Edition box which comes with five hand picked beauty products, three of them full size.
I am going to start with the make up. This months box included three products all inspired by Valentine's Day.
Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter - full size, $14 for 3.4g
Royal Apothic is a quirky brand from Los Angeles, inspired by an old apothecary manual and is a favourite of Victoria Beckham. This pot is my favourite. I am a big fan of vintage and it looks so gorgeous on my dressing table. This Tinted Lip Conditioner contains shea butter and trio of oils (argan, grape seed, almond) to nourish and condition lips with the perfect hint of colour. The shade is a light coral which is perfect to apply over lipstick for moisture and shine. It also works fine on bare lips.
So Susan Rose Quartet Lip & Cheek Palette in shade Warm Rose - sample size 4g, £8 for 4g
This versatile palette can be used on lips and cheeks for a beautiful pink shade. Sadly, I am not too impressed with the product at all. Firstly, the quality is quite rubbish; the package feels and looks cheap and the fact that the product actually sits in the palette a bit uneven makes me not want to touch it at all. I can't believe someone would pay £8 for this. I don't actually see why this was included - it is a pretty poor quality sample and the box already included a good lip product this month.
MARSK Mineral Eyeshadow in Fifty Shades - full size, £14.49 for 1.2g
With a colour palette inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey, this is the only grey you need to create a deep and intensive smokey eye. This mineral powder-based eye shadow is 100% natural, highly pigmented and has a creamy texture, which makes it easy to blend. I love dramatic eyes and I love Marsk - thank you, Glossybox!
Schwarzkopt got2be All star 10 in 1 styling - £4.07 for 100ml
This 10-in-1 styling treatment delivers shine, fullness, strength, thickness, smoothness, suppleness, protection, anti-frizz, heat and humidity proof hair and keeps it all in place. Wow, this product sounds like a real star! I will try it out soon as I can and hopefully it does everything it promises. I love hair products and it is always great to discover new ones - there are never enough of them for me.
Wilkinson Sword Hyrdo Silk - full size, £9.99
With a water-activated moisturising serum infused with marine extracts and shea butter, this razor hydrates skin for up to 2 hours after shaving. Five curve sensing blades give incredible closeness and the result is super soft legs. You can also replace the blades which is quite handy. On their webpage you can get a 3 Pack for £8.49 which is a good price, I think.
I love this months box! Out of the 5 products I received, only 1 disappointed me. I think it is a good deal for only £10 (+P&P) to get so many good and useful things. I like to experiment with new products and brands and I love how Glossybox is continuing to introduce me to them. Hopefully they keep surprising me!
