First Impressions: Glossy Box

Saturday, 21 May 2011
Hiya,

I was a little late in receiving my GlossyBox because I had missed the postman a few days before. I hate it when that happens!

I did get it this morning though and was so excited for it! I had sneaked a look at some reviews on the contents of the box and so knew what to expect.

I will do a more in depth review once I have used all the products but I wanted to share the pictures with you all.

(Apologies for the quality of the pics- it is a new camera and I have yet to figure out how to use it properly)

NARS Illuminator in 'Orgasm'
This NARS Illuminator was the one product that everyone was most excited about- I think its gorgeous, but in all honesty I probably wouldn't buy it myself. That's not to say I won't use it, because I definitely will; but I feel like I would probably spend my money on buying maybe a blush from NARS instead. It is still pretty surprising that Glossy Box gave us a full size product worth £21.50!

All for Eve lipstick in 'Eve Red'

All I can say about this lipstick is that it is the perfect red! This is exactly the kind of red that goes well with my skin tone, so I can't wait to wear it.

Bionova Cleanser
This oil cleanser is for Normal/Dry skin which I don't have, but I might just give it to my sister who does have dry skin and it might work for her.

Como Shambhala lotion
This has quite a strong smell of geranium and peppermint, but I quite like it. It is different to what I normally use- hopefully it will work well too!

Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Rapid Repair Spray
This spray smells amazing! It has quite a fruity scent, I don't really have much else to say about it at the moment until I use it.

For £10 a month, this box is definitely worth trying. A few of you may not really like the idea of this because you might not like even one product out of all the ones you are sent but for those of you who like surprises and trying out different products, this is fabulous!

What do you think of the contents of the box this month?

  1. I got mine too and I have to say the contents is worth at least 3 times the £10 this month! I wonder if that will always be the case.
    I have no complaints at all- I think it's a great concept :)
