Glossybox offers a monthly box, containing roughly five products (including full sized items!!) all beautifully packaged for the very reasonable price of £10. However, as a first time shopper I received 40% off my order...Too tempting to resist I say!
Inside the box...
Created by RED Magazine's Beauty Director, Annabel Meggeson, this beauty box came filled with five fabulous items to help kick start a new beauty routine for Autumn.
Vitamasques Hydro Face Mask, r.r.p £7.99
New to sheet-masks, I approached this product with some caution, however after some fiddling around I applied the thick, gel like mask without too much difficulty. Claiming to provide up to 120 hours of hydration, this mask is perfect for the coming winter months and one I would consider reinvesting in when I find myself in need of a skin boost. (However, at nearly £8 per mask, this may have to remain an occasional treat rather than a fully fledged member of my skin care routine!!!!)
Rodial Smokey Eye Pencil, r.r.p £17
I was surprised to find this full size eye pencil in my box, and even more so when I saw the recommend price! This pencil alone is worth more than the box price- and is worth every penny! Now a new favourite in my daily makeup routine, this eye pencil offers a smokey edge to help transition from summer to winter makeup looks!
Another full sized product!! And what a great one...This lip balm is a life saver! After wearing a tad too many matte lipsticks, I was in need of a product to re-hydrate my lips and return them to their former glory, and this lip-balm certainly stood up to the challenge. The formula is great, not too heavy and with a fresh pomegranate scent, it has quickly become my new lip-care go to!!
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, Full sized product r.r.p £19
I had heard many great things about this mascara, so was excited to find a sample in the box, and the reviews were not wrong! I really love the volume this mascara provides, thickening my lashes whilst also promising to hold the curl in my lashes for longer. My only complaint would be that the mascara has the tendency to become clumpy after only a couple of coats- however I seem to have this issue with a majority of mascaras so wont personally hold it against Too Faced.
Revlon Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat, r.r.p £7.99
Yet another full sized product (You certainly get your moneys worth with Glossybox!!) Not one for having perfect nails (or even just presentable!) I was pleased to receive a product to help me towards achieving professionally polished looking nails. This topcoat, in my somewhat limited opinion, is great! My basic nail paint was transformed by the topcoat, giving a glossy shine and durable finish to my nails- which really stood the test when I accidentally forgot to remove the product before a shift in a restaurant. By the end of my shift I still had perfectly painted nails, without a chip in site. Taaa-Daa this product could be my nail saviour!
Safe to say, after just one box I am hooked....The value for money alone makes a subscription tempting. However, aside from the savings, Glossybox provides a great way to discover new products I would never come across without the subscription service and an excuse to treat myself to some new beauty goodies. I'm looking forward to receiving next months box already!!!!
