I recently started a Glossybox subscription and my first ever box arrived so I thought I would share it here with you.
Inside the pretty pink box were 5 full size products all waiting for me to discover them:
SASS Purifying Cleanser, RRP £7
Not the best product to pull out of the box first – I do hope they don’t promote products like this regularly. Ladies, vulvas are supposed to smell like vulvas. If you smell unusual go to the GP, don’t buy a fancy wash! There are other products in the SASS range that do sound like they might be useful, but this one? Not so much.
MeMeMe Lip Glide in shade ‘Playful Peach’, RRP £6.95
I’m a big fan of lip crayons and this one is wonderfully smooth with great colour pay-off. I also like that it’s slim rather than ‘chubby’ as it makes it easier to get a good line on the lip. The shade is really not me though, it totally clashes with my skin. I would buy this in another shade.
NAOBAY Calming Face Toner, RRP £10.65
A beautifully refreshing alcohol free toner from this Spanish family brand, has a light gentle fragrance that’s very hard to describe. I’ve only used it a couple of times so far but I’m very happy with it and will be using it whenever I am in need of toner or quick refresh.
Emite Artist Colour Powder Blush in shade 108, RRP £20.50
GlossyBox are calling this product a ‘blunzer’ – i.e. a cross between blush and bronzer. The product does look a little dark in the pan which is quite scary for many of us pale ladies but a small amount of this matte look product actually looks rather fabulous.
Manna Kadar Lash Conditioning Primer, RRP £14.55
A lash primer that is supposed to nourish my lashes at the same time as providing a base coat for better mascara application – well you’ve got my attention! It definitely seems to help with mascara and a coat of this followed by mascara definitely looks better than just tons of mascara.
Overall I’m quite pleased with how much product I got for the price paid and it’s great to discover brands I had never heard of or seen before. I’ll definitely be carrying on with this and comparing it to my BirchBox subscription over time.
