Helloooo, hope you're all having a lush weekend. I got my Glossybox through the post today and in true blogger style I had to share my opinion on it. Does anyone find that most of the products are always a little bit dusty? It's so off-putting, please give 'em a clean Glossybox.
Hugo Boss Jour Sample £49 for 50ml - I hate perfume samples in beauty boxes! It smells alright, Glossybox describe it as 'floral' but I find it to be quite a manly scent. Hugo Boss is mostly associated with men in my opinion so I'd steer well clear of this for £49 for 50ml.
Figs and Rouge Multi Purpose Lip Balm in 'Coco Rose' £5 - I love the packaging! This is the first thing that caught my eye in the box - sucker for pink, obvs. I applied this straight away and the scent reminded me of those turkish delight chocolate bars, yum! It has a slight shimmer in it which I'm not particularly fond of on the lips but as it's multi purpose I might try and utilise it as something other than just a lip balm.
Helen É Cosmetics Shimmer Eye Powder £5 - Helen É were an exhibitionist at Clothes Show Live last year and I picked up a little goody bag from them for £10 that had about 8 items in it that I think were supposed to amount to around £60. There is no way that I'd pay even £5 for a single Helen É product. The packaging is so cheap and the products really do not excite me. This little pot reminds me of when I was about 10 and used to get pots of shimmer powder free with Shout Magazine. I did swatch it but there was no point in taking a picture as it wasn't pigmented at all and looked more like talc. No likey Glossybox.
Me Me Me Nail Polish in 'Amorous' £5 - Dark red nail polish as we're about to say Hello to Summer. Really?! That aside, I will say that I am looking forward to trying this. I haven't ever tried a Me Me Me product as far as I can remember so I'm intrigued. Might not try it until Winter though!
Sarah Chapman Skinesis £57 for 30ml - I'm going to be brutally honest, anything skincare related bores me beyond belief. This is a Skin Tone Perfecting Booster that is filled with botanical skin brighteners that promise to target age spots, sun damage and general discolouration. I will probably be pass this on to my Mum but it sounds ok, just not for me.
Overall I'd say that I'm not very impressed with this box. The only thing that I think I'd genuinely enjoy using is the Nail Polish but that's not going to be until colder and darker months. I think Glossybox need to get a better perception on the time of year it is and the products people tend to actually want to use around Summer.
What products did you get in your box? Leave links so I can come and be nosy!
