I've seen a lot of reviews on beauty boxes and i wanted to do my own. Some of the reviews i have read were quite harsh on this months box. Even though i have only had one box i though mine was amazing for a tenner. For the people who don't know what Glossybox is, it's a £12.95 subscription (that you can cancel anytime) to a website www.glossybox.co.uk you pay £10 for the box and £2.95 to protect it in the post. You then receive 5 samples of a mixture of caring products for you body, hair, skin, eyes & lips.
When you receive you Glossybox this is what you will first see,
i think its quite pretty i like that they have added the detail of the logo.
This is the actual Glossybox, it a hard cardboard box
really nice to fit loads of different things in. But yet again i like
these boxes, yet people are saying how they are useless. Well to be
honest i think they are unless and very unimaginative.
After being super excited and not wanting to open it because
it was so cute with its pink bow and black tissue paper.
This is what i found, my first thoughts were i have no idea of these makes
apart from L'oreal that was a good thing for me.
The whole point of me getting this box is to try new things.
Your Hair Care Product.
L'Oreal Mythic Oil
Retailing for £14.95, 125ml.
GB Opinion: Unveil the power of Mythic Oil from L'Oreal Professional. Enriched with a special blend of avocado and grape seed oil, this lightweight oil cares and pampers all hair types, Intensely nourishing even the finest hair, the formula leaves hair looking shiny and feeling supple.
BJunkies Opinion: It's Lush! I have very fine hair and its dyed so many times that it's started breaking at the ends. Basically my hair was a total mess. I used this 3 times they were gone. No joke gone.
Your Eye Care Product.
Strivectin SD eye concentrate.
Retailing at £49, 30 ml.
GB Opinion: A Multi-dimensional eye cream targeting crow's feet, dark circles and puffiness around the eyes, powered up with a new clinical formula for even greater results.
BJunkies Opinion: This product doesn't interest me, it's the only one from the box that isn't really me. So i have given it to mother, she likes it though. So we have BJunkies Mothers Opinion: Great product, slow results, too pricey. Thats mums review on this product i do agree it is very expensive for eye cream. But im sure she will enjoy it.
Your Make Up Product.
HD Brows Eye&Brow Palette.
Retailing at £19.95
GB Opinion: Eyebrow experts HD brows have developed this fantastic multi-use palette containing four matte eye-brow colours. the double up as an eye shadow and eyeliner as well as lasting 24 hours!
BJunkies Opinion: This is a brilliant palette i have quite a strange colour to my eye brows they can't decide whether they want to be brown or blonde, so i make them darker. I think the colours are lovely very pigmented but not too harsh. The only bad point to this product is that they do not last 24hours i tryed it to make sure they last about 14 at most depending how careful you are.
Your Perfume Product.
Plum By Mary Greenwell.
Retailing at £60, 50 ml.
GB Opinion: Plum is the signature fragrance by world- renowned celebrity makeup artist Mary Greenwell. A stunning classic chypre with memorable modern twist.
BJunkies Opinion: This is my favorite product the smell is
lovely no AMAZING! Fruity mix with Orange flower, Jasmine and many more. Even though this product is very expensive i am thinking about getting the full size which has a gold plated top, which is quite random but it had that luxuriant side to the sent. I know you can get these free in boots as i have read so many times in others reviews but who cares you already have a full sized product and others added up way over £12.95! Give them some profit! Also i wore this and my boyfriend has NEVER picked up on my smell before he says because hes so used to it, but i put it on and he loved it too! So its a boy attracter too ;)
Your Body/Nail Care Product.
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse.
Retailing at £37.50 / 100 ml
GB Opinion: huile prodigieuse is a multi- function and multi- usage dry oil made of 6 precious oils with 98% natural ingredients, no preservatives and no silicone. This must have oil hydrates, softens and beautifies face, body and hair.
BJunkies Opinions: This is nice but i would use it as a nail oil, because i think it works best as one. Not much i want to say to this product.
