As you may or may not know, it is Glossybox’s first birthday and as a subscriber I received a special anniversary box! I was really excited to see what was inside and I wasn’t too disappointed overall with what I received. I received 5 products plus a bonus gift and a balloon.
Noble Isle Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel
I always like getting shower gel in boxes, because they’re so useful for going on holiday or when I stay at my boyfriends. This one admittedly though smells really masculine and something my boyfriend would use. Saying that though I love the smell of men’s fragrance so I will use it.
Lolita Lempicka Fragrances L’eau en Blanc & Si Lolita
I really don’t like receiving fragrance samples in boxes, principally because the likelihood is that I won’t like the smell and then it’s just another wasted item. I tried both and I quite liked the Si Lolita although it smelled a little too old for something I would generally wear.
However I did not like the L’eau en Blanc at all it was very strong and like a sweet floral smell, in fact the nearest smell I can liken it to is baby powder or baby wipes, generally the smell they use in baby products.
Weleda Face Cream
I am a little unsure as to what this product is in all honesty as there are no English instructions. Glossybox doesn’t provide a lot of information regarding this- only that it is some kind of face cream- and from the French I translated its for use at night. I probably will use this as samples are always good when travelling.
Uniqone Leave In Mask
This supposedly addresses the 10I’m actually really looking forward to trying this out it does look quite good, and its a different product it’s a leave in mask which I’ve never tried before so this should be good.
Let’s Go Lashes
Although I was a bit disappointed I didn’t receive the brow beater I’m not unhappy with these lashes, they look really nice and generally the style I would wear on a night out so they will definitely get worn. I’m a little uneasy about the fact Glossybox say these are 100% human hair though.
A little extra that came with the box, it is a little black compact mirror with the word Glossybox. It has a normal side and a magnified side which is great for slipping in your handbag. I don’t actually own a compact mirror so this is really handy for me.
As an extra I got a complimentary Glossybox anniversary balloon to celebrate with them.
Overall I’m quite happy with this box this month, there’s plenty of things I will use. I would have preferred not to have received perfume samples as I’m not keen and it would have been nice to get the HD brows brow beater as I really want to try that product but I’m not dissatisfied with the lashes.
What did you guys think? Did you get anything different in your box?
