As a new monthly post I have decided to post reviews on my monthly subscription to the company Glossybox. If you're unaware as to what they do they are an online company that send sample, and full, size products of various makeup and cosmetic brands for a fraction of their retail price. For only £12 a month, inc postage, it is such good value for money as every month its like opening a present full of luxury goodies. I have been subscribed for nearly three years now which is crazy but just goes to show how amazing these boxes are! As well as showcasing new, upcoming brands you also receive drugstore and high end products such as Elizabeth Arden, HD Brows and Sleek, to name a few! The products come packaged in a beautiful patterned box, revealing the classic pink Glossybox, which comes in various patterns depending on the theme of the months box.
In my January box I received a variety of things, both small and large. The first item that caught my eye was the Kueshi Natural & Pleasant Cosmetics Revitalizing Face Toner. Firstly, the packaging of the toner is simplistic and extremely feminine, the pink instantly attracting my attention. With Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Calendula extracts this not only looks appealing but smells delicious. Designed to re-balance modern skin it has a clever alchemy of natural ingredients and science-led formulations to soothe, calm and re-hydrate your skin. After using this a few times myself I can definitely say it does the job and for only $10.70 for 200ml you cant complain!
The next item I saw was the MeMeMe Eyeliner Pencil in the shade Clay, a British based company that has created the 'perfect' eye pencil which is long lasting and extra soft against your skin. I am yet to try this out but after receiving many of MeMeMe's cosmetics in my previous GlossyBox's I trust that they have produced a good product. This is also a steal at only £4!
Also in the box was the Nicka K New York Colorluxe Powder Blush in the shade Romantic. This is a loose powder packed in a faux metal pot with an attached soft sponge applicator. The design of the product is genius as it guarantees no mess as the powder is compact within its packaging. I love this product as it brings colour and a rose look to your cheeks, finishing off your makeup. It also comes with a handy compact mirror at the top of the product, on the removable lid for on the go application. This product is $8.95.
Another well featured brand throughout the Glossy Box's is a company called Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics. This month I was sent the All Over Glow Luminizer Gel, a brilliant product as it is oil-free so eliminates breakouts and it packed with micronized pearlescent pigments to highlight your cheekbones and catch the light for a natural radiant glow that isn't glittery. I find this product is best for more natural makeup days when you don't want an over dramatic highlight but still want a little extra help. You can buy this product for only £10 which is very good considering it is a large bottle.
Finally I received a Naked Lips Organic Lip Balm Superfruit which is a combination of blueberry, acai, goji, baobab and pomegranate. With its 100% natural formula and 97% organic fruits it is sweet tasting and extremely moisturising. Packed full of oils from the worlds most anti-oxidant rich fruits, berries it leaves lips nourished with a subtle glossy look to them. Unlike rival lipbalm products, this doesn't leave a waxy feel to your lips as its slick formula glides across your lips leaving them fresh, hydrated and smelling delicious. This product is also extremely good value for money, only $5!
I hope this post helps decide whether or not to sign up for Glossybox as I have never been disappointed, all the products are of such high standard and you're guaranteed great results each month.
