Lets start by saying this is probably the worst Glossybox I've had, there isn't any stand out products for me. As well as that I had too hair products, which as I have dreadlocks are of absolutely no use to me! But you'll be pleased to hear that I've got a giveaway going up tomorrow morning to give them away to one of you guys! Anyway, shall we get on with it?
Glossybox it is basically a monthly sample subscription for £10 (+p&p), but you can find out more here. This month we have a really pretty mint green box designed by Maggie Li, with the theme of Rising Stars!
What's in my box this month?
- Lady Gaga - Fame Fragrance
- Rodial - Glamoxy Snake Serum & 5 Minute Facial
- Balance Me - Wonder Eye Cream
- The Body Shop - Vitamin E Moisture Cream
- L'oreal Professional - Tecni Art Full Volume Extra Mousse
- L'oreal Professional - Tecni Art Smooth Control Gel-Cream (not listed on my card?)
Lady Gaga - Fame Fragrance
Price for Fullsize? £25 for 30ml
Size of Glossybox sample? 1.2ml
My Thoughts? I was reasonably happy with this sample as it's something that can be used a good few times. And also there's a fair amount of hype surrounding it at the moment, so great to have a sample to sniff! It also really reminds me of something else, but I can't put my finger on what? But has a somewhat floral fragrance to it.
Rodial Skin Samples
Price for Fullsize? Snake Serum (£29 for 10x1ml), 5 Minute Facial (£10.95 for 10x1ml)
Size of Glossybox sample? 2x 1ml sachets of each product (4 in total)
My Thoughts? Wow, pricey is the first thing I have to say! But a good value of product to get in a box that cost me just £10, so I can't complain too much! I haven't actually tried either product yet, but I will probably tweet a little something once I've given it a whirl!
Balance Me - Wonder Eye Cream
Price for Fullsize? £20 for 15ml
Size of Glossybox sample? 7ml
My Thoughts? This is a really nice sized sample and will definitely last me a good while, although I'll be honest and say I'm unlikey to repurchase at £20! It was nice to see that this is made with ingredients from 99% natural origin! The claims of this are to 'soothe tired eyes, smooth away dark shadows and reduce the appearance of fine lines'
The Body Shop - Vitamin E Moisture Cream
Price for Fullsize? £9, 50ml
Size of Glossybox sample? 15ml
My Thoughts? I was very happy with this product both because it's a brand I'm very familiar with and because it's actually a product I've tried and liked in the past. For me it's a great winter moisturizer to use on drier areas of my skin - for which previously it has worked very for me! And it couldn't have come at a better time!
L'oreal Professional Techni Art Products
Price for Fullsize? The Mousse is £10.30 for 250ml
Size of Glossybox sample? 50ml
My Thoughts? The mousse it only listed on my card, so I'm perhaps thinking that the gel-cream accidently worked it's way into my box! As I have dreadlocks and have absolutely no use for these I was going to give them both away! But I've just checked postage restrictions and unfortuntley I can't post the mousse as it's an aerosol. But I'll still give away the gel-cream which will be my next post - coming early tomorrow morning!
This month wasn't particularly spectacular was it, the only saving grace was the Vitamin E Moisture Cream. But otherwise not too fab! As I said in the video I won't be reviewing the products this month as there's really no point! 2 I can't use, with some being 2 use samples which isn't really enough to share an opinion on!
Hopefully you understand this, but do feel free to hit me up with any questions you have and I'll be more than happy to answer them for you! Hopefully some of you guys had a better box, what have you got in yours? Anyway thankyou everyone for stopping by and remember to look out for the giveaway! Hannah
