The other week I decided I fancy spending some £££ (very little:D) and restock my emptying bathroom shelves by getting totally random beauty products in a box – so here we are my first ever Glossybox. Actually first 2 boxes as they did 2 for 1 edition in July (which I believe wasn’t really free cause I paid £16.50 – so £6.50 for delivery? ummm don’t think so)
Anyways, take a look below what was in boxes and what I liked and disliked xx
(I only noticed after uploading, that one box is missing a hair brush – looks/works like Tangle Teezer but it’s a rip off obvs 🙂
So 1 box included:
Hawaiian 30SPF satin tan – it’s lovely and I really like it! great travel size 🙂
Konjac sponge – awesome totally love it and it’s really good for gentle exfoliation!
NailsInc nail polish in Kensington Gardens – hmm the RRP is £11 – in my opinion waste of money as it started coming off after 2 days, colour is nice but it felt like any cheap nail polish.
Lip tint Emite make up – described below in disliked 🙂
Detangling Hairon brush – it’s quite nice and pocket sized
2nd box included:
Hairon zero crease hair bands – well not a massive fan of these
Utan gradual face tan – this is great but gotta be really careful on hairline/eyebrows – I have yellow patches oops!
Icona Milano mascara – not a fan described below
Soft & Gentle deodorant hair minimise – I REALLY dislike this. Can’t stand the smell (very floral/cheap/alcoholy) and it doesn’t reduce the hair growth at all.
So the things I didn’t like include the mascara (that gave me massive panda eyes after few hours and it was VERY difficult to remove). It says waterproof so fair enough but it was a little bit too much that micellar water+eye make up remover barely handled it. It actually looked nice on the lashes but to be honest any mascara looks great on my lashes now after I did the treatment on them and they’re super long:) I don’t know this brand so I might research it a little bit.
and lip tint (which was totally useless for me – on cheeks it made me look like a clown, on the lips it dried them out+didn’t do anything). It smells nice, like roses and packaging is nice but naaah not a fan 🙂
Deodorant – just not for me. I’m not a fan of the smell, size and after a session at the gym I was super sweaty so for me sadly it didn’t do anything that was promised on the packaging.
Overall I liked most of the products only 3 of them were a big no-no’s for me so I think for the first experience with Glossybox it was quite successful one:) However I’m not sure if I will be repurchasing. The element of surprise is nice but most of the time you get things you would never buy/want, so for me as a one off was nice. Maybe I will try some other beauty boxes but time will show:)
Have a great day xoxo
