February 2012 GLOSSYBOX

I didn't want to be too quick to blog about the newest GLOSSYBOX But now I've had chance to test my products out, I'm pretty sure I've got the best of the bunch.

GLOSSYBOX is a subscription package that sends you a cute box of 5 luxury beauty samples to your door.  It costs £10 per month + postage and packaging.  If you like the products you can buy the full sized product at a discounted price.  I love the surprise element of this treat and it's a great way to try out new brands.

Each month has a theme.  This month it's The London Fashion Week Edition - 5 fab ways to keep you looking your fashionable best. 

In this month's box I got 

BECCA Beach Tint Watermelon (value £20.00)
I couldn't believe it when I heard there was a BECCA product in this month's GLOSSYBOX - never mind it being a full sized product! AMAZING! - that's the only word to describe this.  I love the natural colour.  It's obvious that this is a more expensive product.  It has a lovely texture and it's really easy to apply and blends into my skin beautifully.  The product has a nice scent, but it's not over-powering.  This is the top product in the box for me.    

COMO SHAMBHALA Invigorate Shower Gel (value £3.33) 
This shower gel smells delicious.  It contains a blend of essential oils: eucalyptus, geranium, lavender and peppermint.  It's really uplifting and perfect to give you a boost in the morning.  

BM BEAUTY Pure Mineral Eyeshadow in Noir (value £3.50) 
I'd never tried this brand until now, so it's a great way to try products I'd not used before.  This is natural product and it's ingredients are not tested on animals.  I'm a huge fan on mineral makeup and probably own most of the Bare Minerals range.  I love this product.  It's not a colour to put all over your eyes, but it's great when used with a damp eyeliner brush for the perfectly lined smoky eye look.  

DR BRONNER'S Lavender Hand Sanitiser (value £3.99) 
This is the  one product I wasn't sure of - probably because it's not something I would think of buying.  However, I've been nicely surprised.  It's another full sized product in the box too.  It's really easy to use - you just spray it onto your hands and rub into your skin.  I thought the lavender scent might be a bit strong on my hands but it's actually quite lightly scented.  Maybe not something I'll buy again but I'll be keeping this one in my handbag.  

AWAPUHI by Paul Mitchell Wild Ginger Treatment Oil (value £6.49) 
I've not used a Paul Mitchell product for quite a few years so I was really excited to receive this.  This hair treatment smells absolutely gorgeous! My highlighted, naturally wavy, mid-length hair needs a little bit of extra moisture on the ends and  this worked a treat.  I normally steer clear of anything that's called an oil as I expect it to be greasy, but this is lightweight and absorbed quickly into the ends of my hair.  I was left with a gorgeous shine too.  This is one product I'll be buying again. 

Overall I'm really pleased with this month's box and it's great value for money.  I can't wait to see what's in the Mystery Box.  Have you subscribed to GLOSSY BOX?  What did you think of your products?
