I impulsively subscribed to Glossybox recently and couldn’t wait to get my first box in the post.
This month’s box is their “Winter Warmers” box, and is filled with goodies to help get you through the cold winter weather. I haven’t tried all of the products, but I’m really excited to use everything.
Glossybox is £10 per month (plus postage) for 5 full size or deluxe sample sized products. Personally, I think this is a great deal. A lot of the products from this month’s box were full size and worth well over the £10 I paid!
In this months box, I got:
Huda Beauty Lip Contour in “Venus” (RRP £16)
I think this might have been an extra in this box, but I’m obsessed with it, and I’m not going to complain about getting a high end lipliner in a subscription box! This lip liner is a stunning brown-nude shade and is perfect for Autumn/Winter. It’s quite a bit darker/more brown based than my natural lip shade, so it’s something I’m more likely to wear at this time of the year. It goes on smoothly and stays put. When I saw this in my box, I put it on straight away and topped it off with some of my Anastasia lip gloss in “Vintage” and it was the perfect warm nude lip for the colder weather.
Rituals of Ayurveda Soothing Hand Balm (RRP £9.90)
In the winter, my hands get super dry and flaky (think lizard skin meets sandpaper), so I love a hand cream and this feels like the most luxurious hand cream I’ve ever owned. The packaging is beautiful and the scent is delicious. It’s scented with Indian Rose and sweet almond oil, which isn’t too overpowering. I’ve used this once so far and love it. It’s a little greasy when you first apply it, but it absorbs into the skin really quickly and leaves your hands feeling really soft and hydrated.
Mudmasky Winter Mask (RRP £44)
This is my favourite thing in the box and I haven’t even tried it yet. This is a full size product, which is worth 4x what the box costs – bloody bargain! I have ridiculously dry skin, especially when it’s colder, so I’m always on the lookout for hydrating skincare and makeup products. This is a hydrating leave on mask, which I’ll 100% be trying out tonight before bed. Hopefully this will be the answer to all my dry, winter skin problems!
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (RRP £1.10)
The cleanser in this box is a deluxe mini sample size, and weirdly something I’ve wanted to try for years. As well as having really dry skin, it can also be quite sensitive so I have to be careful of what skincare products I use. This is a gentle cleanser and smells like E45 lotion, so here’s to hoping that my skin likes it.
Kandi Skin Workout in a Mask (RRP £3)
The card which came in my box said that there’d be a Kandi Skin skin mist inside, but instead I had this sheet mask by the same brand. Now, I’m not usually a sheet mask kinda gal (give me a clay mask any day of the week) because I feel like they’re a bit messy and I usually just end up with serums all over my pyjamas. I’ll definitely be giving this a go, though because I do find sheet masks a bit better for my dry skin. Who knows, maybe I just haven’t met the right sheet mask yet?
Hask Shine Oil (RRP £2.49)
I haven’t had my hair cut in months, so the ends are looking a little worse for wear. I love a hair oil for making my dry ends feel a bit more alive, so I’m looking forward to giving this a go the next time I wash it. It’s quite a small product but with oils, you only need a tiny bit so it will probably last a good amount of time.
OffBlak Teas (RRP £4.99 each)
This box came with 2 tea bags, one forest fruits & ginger flavour and one spicy orange and ginger. I’m not the biggest herbal tea fan, I usually just stick to a green tea, but I’ll give these a try if I’m feeling adventurous.
I can’t wait to give everything in this box a proper go. I haven’t decided how I want to do these posts for future boxes. Should I try everything out first so I can give mini reviews? Or just include my faves from the previous month in each post? I’ll figure it out.
