So last month I decided to give Glossybox another go after trying it for a few months last year.
July’s was my first box, I used their welcome offer to get £5 off and 2 extra products so that’s why i have more products than you’d usually get each month. I love the whole idea of subscription boxes and I couldn’t wait to see what would be in my first box, it was a nice little surprise when it finally arrived. Glossybox is my favourite sub box that i’ve tried so far, i think it’s the beautiful packaging and the higher end feel of the products that swings it for me, anyway…
I’ve given each product a fair trial for a few weeks and typed up my short but sweet, unbiased opinions below.
In no particular order of favourites ( i will reveal in my 3 month review) i received…
Sanctuary – Ultimate Salt Scrub | RRP £13.50
Salt scrubs always leave my skin feeling extra soft and shiny, this one is no exception. It is quite oily so glides on super easy, the only thing i’m not sure of is the scent but i’ll take that for the way my skin feels after.
111 Skin – Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel | RRP £110
This has worked wonders for the bags developing under my sleep deprived eyes as of late. I quite often get little red marks right on the outer corners too, i’ve noticed that when I use this, they definitely aren’t as visible. It’s a shame it’s so expensive, I can see why it carries such a high price tag but I definitely wont be buying a full size unfortunately.
Manna Kadar Cosmetics – Sheer Glo | RRP £22.50
I really wanted to love this highlighter. It looked so beautiful when tested on my hand but unfortunately it didn’t live up to the hype when applied on my face. I tried it both ways that were suggested; dabbed on top of my foundation on the cheekbones and nose, which just stripped my foundation straight off my face and didn’t look as luminous as i would have liked but maybe that is just me. I also tried adding a little to my foundation and mixing before applying but this just gave my foundation an awful texture and didn’t sit right on my skin at all.
Sleek Makeup – Power Plump Crayon in Colossal Coral | RRP £5.50
I don’t usually go for a lip crayon as i find you don’t have as much control with the application, especially once the crayon starts to go blunt and you have to sharpen it, fall too much upkeep! This wasn’t a shade i’d see myself wearing and as expected it totally didn’t suit me, so I wasn’t a fan of this i’m afraid!
Batiste – Stylist XXL Plumping Powder | RRP £3.99
I already had a tub of this that was running low, so this full sized surprised came at just the right time. I love this product, it gives my hair so much volume and makes it so much easier to style, even Jordan loves it for his hair. The only thing i’d say is it gives a strange texture, which isn’t visible but your hair definitely look great the next day unless it’s washed out.
Beauty Pro – Black Diamond Peel Off Mask | £4.95 for 3
I’ve been wanting to try a black peel off mask for a while now, for my nose in particular. This one works great, I only needed to use a thin layer and it still peeled off all in one neat strip and it look loads of bad stuff with it!
This Works – In Transit Camera Close Up | RRP £30
I’ve only used this for a couple weeks and i’m sold already! It is a mask, moisturiser and primer all-in-one i’m not sure how it works all i know is it leaves my skin feeling super smooth and my makeup glides on like a dream after using. It is even SPF 30, perfect for this time of year.
Model Co – Mini Contour Stick | RRP £8
I’ve never used a contour that isn’t powder so using a creamy contour especially as a stick felt a little strange at first. I’d recommend using this if you have a little more time to spend on your makeup as it takes a little while to blend but the colour is great and it’s super handy to take on the go if you don’t fancy carrying a full contour palette with you.
My July Glossybox has now arrived!
