Glossybox October Devil Edition

So this month Glossybox really hit it out of the park for me with October’s Angel or Devil edit. There were two special design boxes available with an angelic or devilish theme…. I’m thinking you can see which one I got!

The colours in the October box were just fab!

The box had 5 amazing beauty treats all of them full size and a special extra treat of a hot chocolate from Whittard of Chelsea.

First up is the Que Bella Beauty Plumping gold peel off mask, which has a gorgeous glittery sheen to it in the packet (and on your face!). I love a good face mask and this also had hyaluronic acid to moisturise and brighten your skin, a must in the autumn weather! A full size product which is RRP of £2.49

I love a good red lip during the autumn and winter and in this box we got a Lord and Berry lip crayon in Devil Red. It’s a perfect bold red and being a crayon format you can line your lips and fill them in with one product! Finishes matte and doesn’t feel drying at all. This is a full size product with an RRP of £15.

An extra treat in this months box was this delicious Whittard of Chelsea Hot Chocolate which is Sticky Toffee Pudding flavour. This was so creamy and had a strong caramel/toffee flavour. A lovely little extra for those cold nights! I absolutely love the sugar skull packaging, really went brilliantly with the Halloween theme of the box. This was a sample size worth £2, Full size worth £9.

Another favourite of mine in this months box was this STYLondon palette which has 9 shades of eyeshadow in red and orange tones. There’s a lovely mix of shimmers and matte shades which make a fab statement eye- not one for the faint hearted! I love this palette the pigment is good and it’s a great size for popping in your makeup kit. The palette is worth £15 and is another full size item.

An MCO eyeliner crayon in black was the next item which is a black liner designed to give precise lines. I really liked this as I can sometimes struggle with liquid liner when I apply. This applies really well and smudges nicely as well if you want to wear it along the lash line for a smokey eye look. The RRP for this is £15.

The final product in the box this month was the Bubbletea Devils Dust foaming bath powder. This is a really good size as you don’t need loads in the bath to create the bubbles and it has a nice floral scent to it. This is full size and RRP is £4.99

Altogether the products are worth £54.48. They are all products I have enjoyed using, particular favourites being the lip crayon, eye palette and eye liner. I really enjoyed the theme this month too, Halloween is one of my favourite seasons and I am glad I got the Devil box as the colours are much more suited to me.

I subscribe to Glossybox for £8.50 plus postage and packing which in total is £11.75 so definitely well worth the subscription fee.

September Glossybox

This months Glossybox has a Delicious Beauty theme, with 7 items instead of 5.

First up there’s a Banana setting powder from Mayy Beauty, which says it’s a mineral based powder and also contains hyularonic acid. This was ideal for me as I love using the baking technique to set my concealer and as it happens had just ran out of my usual powder! The RRP for this is £15

Next a Charcoal whitening toothpaste from Colgate. Normally I wouldn’t be too pleased getting an item like this however I have been looking for whitening toothpaste for a while and haven’t found one I like. Will see how this one does. RRP for this is £4

Also included is a Palmers Coconut Oil Deep Conditioning Protein Pack Hair Mask. I was over the moon to get this as I recently bought one of these to take on my holiday. It smells amazing and my hair feels super soft and conditioned afterward. RRP for this is £2.49

A perfume is one of the featured items this month from Mitchell and Peach. The scent is Flora No.1 Fine Edition Eau de Parfum. This is a blend of sweet fennel, larkspur, rose, ylang ylang, peony and lavender. This is a nice light floral which I think will be nice to wear. My only gripe is that there is no spray function on the bottle so it’s free flowing when you want to put it on. RRP for this is £29.75 for the Deluxe Mini which is the size included.

The Delhicious Body scrub contains Black Assam Tea with caffeine and antioxidants that help with dry skin and flush away toxins caffeine and antioxidants that help dry skin and give you a glow. I’m really excited to try this and see what it is like. There’s a lot in the pack and it says you can get 2-3 uses out of it. The RRP for this is £7.95.

The final product was Carex hand sanitizer in the scent Strawberry Laces. Now I know this item caused some controversy among the Glossybox community but I actually really liked this! I use handgel quite a lot as I’m currently on some medication that reduces my immune system. This smells lovely and is great to pop in your bag.

Lastly as an extra treat this month a Godiva chocolate bar was included. This was so good! I got the caramel lion and as expected from Godiva it was delicious.

So all in all this months box was worth £63.68.

I subscribe to Glossybox for £8.50 plus postage and packing which in total is £11.75 so definitely well worth the subscription fee.

Glossybox Birthday edition

So this month Glossybox really excelled itself! With a special birthday theme, the packaging alone signalled this was going to be an awesome box!

The sparkly holographic packaging has a millennial pink and rose gold scheme, definitely a box to keep for storage.

Love this pink sparkly box!

Perfectly packaged birthday theme!

August Glossybox

And then… onto the products! As usual 5 products, 3 full size and 2 deluxe mini size. That’s one of the things I love about Glossybox, you do get actual full sized items and not just minis all the time.

The definite highlight of this box is the Huda Beauty Lip strobe which is £17. I got the shade Angelic, which is a gorgeous rose gold, very in keeping with the box theme! The gloss is designed to be worn for a full coverage finish with pink shimmer and gold reflections. It can also be worn on top of your regular lipstick for an added shine effect. I really like the colour and texture of this product. Unlike other lip strobes and toppers it has a good coverage on its own so you don’t have to layer two products.

Next we have the Furr Lashes Rose gold eyelash curler. This came at a great time for me as I was looking at my old Eyeko curler and thinking it was past it’s best! There’s not much you can say about this except it’s rose gold coloured again and it nicely curls your lashes. The eyelash curler is £15 to purchase.

A fab Beauty Pro eye therapy product is included in this box Eye Therapy under eye mask. A cooling eye mask to smooth your under eye area and revive puffy eyes. This has green tea and aloe vera extract with anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also made to reduce dark circles and brighten up your skin. I love eye patches like these as I always feel your makeup looks great after you’ve used them! They are £1.65 for the deluxe mini sample or £4.95 for the Full size product which is a really affordable price for this kind of product. I really liked using these, it was relaxing and my skin felt great and looked more rested.

Next I got an Imperial Leather Foamburst Ultimate Moisture Golden Amber and Coconut Oil. This smells amazing! It just makes me think of holidays with the coconut scent and I like these foam based products as they make my skin feel more moisturised. The amber oil is meant to repair and the coconut oil is to moisturise and hydrate your skin. It’s a perfect size for popping in your travel or gym bag, which is where mine will be headed! This costs £2 for the deluxe sized sample or £5 for the full sized product.

And finally another product I was in need of purchasing! The felt tip liner from Bang Beauty comes in a mirrored packaging and has a thin marker tip for precise eyeliner applications. It’s also waterproof (yay!) and designed to quick dry for a non smudging application that you don’t need to reapply. I haven’t put this to the extreme test yet as I’ve not worn it all day but I can say that it applies really well and doesn’t drag when applying like some others I’ve used. This product sells for £15.75 normally.

Altogether this months box is worth £51.40!

I subscribe to Glossybox for £8.50 plus postage and packing which in total is £11.75 so definitely well worth the subscription fee.

Next months has a ‘Delicious Beauty’ theme with food inspired beauty products which sounds very intriguing!

Have you had any great products this month?

July Glossybox Holiday Haul!

I was really excited for the July Glossybox which was summer holiday themed and features products to get you ready for your holiday.

July 2019 Glossybox

Five products are featured with skincare, haircare and makeup, another great mixture! There are perfect sizes mixed in here for popping in your suitcase or toiletry bag too.

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Bloom Mascara RRP £23

First up a full size Manna Kadar Cosmetics mascara in jet black. The first thing about this that struck me was the twisted packaging which I like. It’s designed with a cutting edge wand for fuller and longer length lashes. I have been trying some new mascaras lately so I will give this a go and add into another post for a full review.

Omorovicza cleanser, Palmers Body lotion and Boots face mask

Next we have a skincare trio with cleanser, gradual tanning lotion and a face mask.

The Omorovicza cleanser is not one I’ve heard of before and is a Hungarian brand. It’s fab for removing make up, being a foaming cleanser I find they’re usually good for that. This one is a travel size so will be great to take when we are on holiday.

The Palmers body lotion is called Natural Bronze and it’s a gradual everyday tanner. I’ll have to try this when my skin is not as flared up with my psoriasis. It does smell lovely though and I would love to try it properly.

The face mask is from Boots and I got the peel off one. I have to say it was fun using a peel off mask, a lot of the ones I’ve used lately have been sheet masks. It was fun peeling it off and it has tea tree and witch hazel, I had a few blemishes at the time and it has really reduced the redness and made my skin look brighter. I would definitely purchase again. At full size it’s just £3.50

And finally we have haircare with Moroccan Oil. This is an argan oil product for all hair types and helps with sun damage, conditioning and styling. I use it like a serum on wet hair before I heat style and on my dry hair to keep the lengths and ends looking healthy. I really love Moroccan Oil, it really does the job without weighing my hair down or making it look greasy. I hadn’t used it in a while as I’d been favouring John Frieda Frizz Ease but I think I’ll be making the switch back!

Overall the box is worth £58 this month so well worth the monthly subscription plan of £8.50 plus postage and packing.

The sneak peek for August was a sparkly Huda Beauty lip gloss which I am really looking forward to!

Summer Soirée

June Glossybox Summer Soirée

I loved the June Glossybox so much with its Summer Soirée theme! A fab mix of products, which I’ll tell you about and are perfect for natural subtle makeup look. A gold coloured eyeshadow pencil

Meech N Mia Eyeshadow Stick

First is the Meech N Mia eyeshadow chubby stick in gold. This is a really creamy eye pencil that has a striking look on its own. However I think it will be great layered with some palettes I already have especially some of the shimmers in the Urban Decay Naked Cherry.

Avant Pro Perfecting Primer and Hask Coconut Oil Mask

I always love a bit of variety in the box and this months was three makeup items, one skincare and one haircare. My haircare item was the Hask hair mask for deep conditioning. It smelled amazing and left my dry coloured hair feeling silky smooth.

Avant Pro Perfecting Collagen Touché Eclat Primer

My skincare item was Avant, I loved their nightcream which featured in another box. The primer is really lightweight and you don’t need much when applying – a little goes a long way! It’s a great base for your foundation, mine definitely lasted much longer and it also helped with fine lines under my eyes.

Sleek Face Form Contouring Palette

Next up is the Sleek Face Form contouring palette in the shade Fair. This is a three shade palette of matte contour powder, highlighter and blush to add definition to your face. I love the colours, they work really well for my skin tone. Sometimes I find contour powders are far too dark for my face but this adds a subtle definition without being overpowering. The blush and highlighter are buildable and add a nice colour. The palette has a mirror and is a cute little size to pop in your bag for touch ups if needed. Great for experimenting with contour in a subtle way.

The final item in this months box was a Model Co Lip Creme in the shade Peachy Nude. The name really is a perfect description it’s a lovely peach colour and is a matte creme lipstick. Once applied you let it dry for 60 seconds and then it has great staying power. I had some lip liners which matched and I’ve used those with it too, it’s a really good lipstick and one I’m likely to purchase again.

All in all a fab box for June, which in total is worth over £125, across the cost of all the products! I really love the variety I get in Glossybox each month and I seem to find products that I might not have picked up but that are a good fit for me.

Glossybox costs just £8.50 per month plus shipping on their 12 month plan with further details available at http://www.glossybox.co.uk
