Glossybox | February 2016 Review

by - 14:34

As a mom, I have found that I am more likely to spend my expendable income on Jack, than I am on myself. I rarely treat myself to things as I know I could utilise my money in other ways. 

One thing I have been looking at for a while however, is beauty boxes. Having a treat arrive on my doorstep every month with surprise items in would be lovely and would mean that I could try different items out before purchasing them.

After comparing the different beauty boxes available, I opted for the Glossybox. With the February box being my first, I thought I would share the contents of the box with you. I am paying £10 a month for the box + postage and packaging and can cancel at any time.

The box itself is very pretty and has a love theme. It is adorned with balloons and the text 'love is in the air.' On opening the box I could read about the theme itself - Beauty Soulmates. This theme encompasses those products that you grow to love and don't want to be without.

The first item that I spotted in my box was the Wilkinson Sword Hydro Silk Razor. I was really happy that this was in my box as it was a product that I was interested in trying. This razor has 5 curve sensing blades with water activated serum infused with marine extracts. It gave a really close shave and left my skin feeling super soft.

As a person who has thick and damaged hair, I'm always in need of a conditioner. I was therefore pleased to see the Naobay Hair Mask Volume Conditioner included in the box. A natural and organic product, it smells absolutely amazing. I cannot wait to give this a try.

The Nicka K New York 24H Waterproof Eyeliner in dark brown was another pleasant addition. I have wore this once so far and absolutely love it. It comes with an attached sharpener and a smudging sponge so is ideal to put in your make up bag. This product has a great quality to it and really does stay in place.

Next up is the Vintage Cosmetic Company Slanted Tweezers. They look absolutely beautiful and feature a floral design. They make brow shaping easy and are a nice inclusion to the box.

The final item was the MUA Power Pout Glaze in the shade Allure. This was the most disappointing item in my box. Whilst I am sure that I would have loved the product in a different shade, I felt that the shade I was given was very dark for my complexion. That's surprising given that Glossybox ask for details about your complexion when you sign up. Aside from the colour, the lipgloss itself I found to be quite sticky. I gave the colour a try but doubt I will use it again.

I was pleasantly surprised at the mix of products in this box. Whilst I didn't enjoy using the MUA Power Pout Glaze, I will be using the other products. From hair products to skin and make-up products I feel that this box has items to please everybody. With five full-sized items included, I think the box is amazing value!
