I’m a little late to this party as i’ve only just picked this up from the Post Office. I hate it when i’m not in for parcels. Boohoo.
So, not wanting to wait i decided to check out what was in this month’s box. To be honest, i’ve always loved the items i’ve received in my Glossybox, bar one or two and this was is no exception!
As usual, this was a normal pink Glossybox with details on what’s in the box and sneak peeks of what’s coming next time… The Full size Lord & Berry Crayon Lipstick looks VERY appealing!
So, what was in this month’s box?…
I have a habit of buying so many shampoo and conditioner sets from different brands before i’ve even finished the rest. I think i have around 4 different types in my bathroom at the moment! So, when i saw these i was very pleased. These are shampoo and conditioner for ageing hair – and with all the hair dye that goes on my head i’m sure my hair needs a bit of TLC. I’ve always loved Dove products so i’m glad these were in this month’s box!
This is Naobay moisturising peel which is an exfoliating polish. It has particles from the acai tree to remove dead skin while making sure you get the glowing and luminous look. This all sounds pretty good, i can’t wait to try it! Also, the packaging on this is beautiful – the lid is actually wooden. Very posh!
I love essence mascara. So cheap but they definitely work for me! I had a previous mascara i received in a previous Glossybox and i used it religiously until Benefit’s Roller Lash came along but i’m hoping this will be as good as i was thinking the other day that i needed some more mascara. This promises dramatic volume. I hope so!
Now, i’m always very wary of Nail Polish. I also seem to always get pink or red in my Glossybox, hmm. I have so many pink shades but this one looks like a nice fresh shade for spring. A colour that can give a little ‘pop’ to your fingernails and even toenails. It’s quite a good sized pot as well as the last pink nail polish i received was TINY.
This is the only product i have issues with this month. For a start the packaging looks a bit run down and i thought it was actually a really old product when i first saw it. It’s not very appealing to the eyes. So i thought i’d open it and try it.
It says, shake up and apply to lips. It also says you can mix it with other colours to create lipstick. So i shook it and applied some to the back of my hand first.
The first thing that came out was just clear thick liquid, like a colourless lip gloss. Then came the colour. A bright orange colour. You can see on the picture it wasn’t mixed in properly (and this is after i had used my finger to mix it up.
Now, i don’t know about you but my lips are a pink/red colour. When i put this on it just sat there all orangey and gooey. I couldn’t even bring myself to wear it long enough to take a picture. It felt horrible on my lips, greasy and oily. I’ve seen other boxes which had reds and pinks of this product which would have been great but i think the fact mine was bright orange was a bit of a let down. Sadface.
