I’m a big fan of subscription beauty boxes, and Glossybox is one of my favourite brands. I absolutely love receiving these boxes each month; it’s almost like giving yourself a present! This month’s Glossybox has impressed me, featuring an edit of five samples, one of which is a full size Sleek palette. This box contains a range of hair care, skin care and makeup, giving your beauty routine a nice refresh for spring.
Sleek Eye & Cheek Palette ‘All Day Soiree’ – RRP £10
This month Glossybox allowed their subscribers to pick from four different Sleek palettes, which I was too late for. However I received the one I would have chosen anyway so I was over the moon! The palette contained 4 eyeshadows, a blusher and a highlighter and for me it was love at first sight. This palette definitely had a spring feel to it with the orange tones and baby pink blush. The pigmentation of this palette was brilliant; it’s great to create everyday looks or something subtle for a night out. Another bonus is that champagne eyeshadow can also be used as a highlighter.
oOlution Eye Love – 15ml (full size RRP £30)
I have never brought eye cream so this was something new to me. The great thing about monthly subscription boxes is that they introduce you to products you wouldn’t normally purchase. This cream states it reduces dark circles and puffiness, but I have neither so I cannot judge the effectiveness of the cream. This cream did make the skin under my eyes very smooth which was nice, and made concealer easier to apply.
This Works In Transit Camera Close-up Primer – 20ml (full size RRP £30)
This is great for skin that’s been left a little dull from the winter months! You can use this as a primer, moisturiser and a mask to give your skin the hydration it needs. Most primers I have used in the past dry out my skin a little from the silicon they contain, but this primer actually made my face feel hydrated. My foundation application was a lot smoother using the primer, and it seems to have more staying power when I use it with the primer.
Figs & Rouge Hydra-Activ Smart Nutrient Vital Moisture Day Cream – 20ml (full size RRP £28)
This cream is lightweight and has a luxurious feel to it. I’m not a big fan of heavy moisturisers due to have oily/spot prone skin, but I really loved this sample. I only used it on the few dry patches I had, but it worked seemingly better than my current body shop vitamin E moisturiser and smelt amazing too! I couldn’t stop touching my skin because of how soft it felt and I will be 100% purchasing the full sized product.
Schwarzkopf BC Bonacure Oil Miracle Brazilnut Oil Pulp Treatment – 30ml (full sized £3.95)
I am obsessed with hair products so I was pleased to see one in the box this month. The first thing I noticed about this mask was how incredible it smelt and I couldn’t wait to try it so my hair would smell nice all day. This mask is for all hair types and claims to remove impurities whilst intensely nourishing and protecting from UV rays. I applied this mask to hair and left it on for 10 minutes. The result was my hair felt super soft and silky, and I can’t forget the amazing smell it left! I was impressed with this mask and would recommend it as a weekly treatment to give your hair the nourishment it needs.
Sometimes beauty boxes can be a hit or miss, but I really liked this months Glossybox. The sleek palette was a big winner for me, as you can’t beat the beautiful spring colours and great pigmentation. You can’t go wrong with this box with it being priced at only £10 + p&p per month; I’d recommend giving it a try if you fancy testing new products but don’t want to purchase the full size. Overall I really enjoyed trying the products in this box and can’t wait for next months! If you want to try Glossybox you visit their website here.
