September’s Glossy Box!

I know, I know, Glossy Box posts have probably been popping up all over your blogger dashboard recently, but I couldn’t help but jump in with my thoughts on September’s box.

This is actually the first Glossy Box I’ve received so I was super excited – it felt like Christmas when it arrived! I was kindly sent this a few days early by the Glossy team after their event at the beginning of this month (full post to come soon!), and I’ve been waiting till I’ve tried all products before posting my review.

My Box

HD Brows, Eye & Brow Palette
I squealed when I opened my box to find this – I am an eyebrow lover and believe that perfect brows are the key to looking your best. This palette has four perfect matte brow shades which, used correctly, can shape and improve the look of your brows. I’ve also been using the darker shadows as eyeliners which works perfectly well. I’m going to do a full review of this palette soon and show you before and afters with my brows!

Neal & Wolf, Glow Super Shine Spray
I think this might be my favourite product in the box, because I adore having silky shiny hair and this spray gives me just that. I was just running out of my current hair shine spray so this has quickly become a staple product in my daily routine. I also really like the simple packaging and the smell of this.

Plum by Mary Greenwell EDP
I find this scent to be quite musky and I personally prefer sickly sweet scents, so this unfortunately isn't for me.

Dead Sea Spa Magik, Salt Brushing
This is a nice and thick, grainy scrub which I've been using on wet skin in the bath (although you can also use it on dry skin for best results). Because of the oil in the scrub, my skin is left so soft afterwards and free of dead, flaky skin. This scrub didn’t irritate my eczema which is a big benefit for me and it has a slight zingy scent which I love.

Green People, Fruitful Nights
I can’t comment properly on this yet because I’ve only been using it on my neck (as I love the skincare regime I’m using at the moment and want to stick to that) but its light and sinks into my skin easily.

What I think
I adore this box and if I received something like this in the post every month I’d be a very happy girl. For £12.95 I think this box is amazing because it has two full size products, although this obviously isn’t guaranteed every month. I love being able to try products that I have not heard of before in the comfort of my own home which is a great advantage to those who lead busy lives and don’t necessarily have time to go shopping to discover and test new brands.

I think I might just sign myself up for a box or two over the winter period for a little ‘pick me up’ and new years treat to myself.

Are you subscribed to Glossy Box? What did you get in yours?

  1. I so wish I had waited to unsub from the Glossybox, the HD brow kit would have come in very handy!

  2. I so wish they'd ship to the United States. But they don't. I'm trying to find a company similar right now! :)

    Hi I've just recently heard about glossybox and now read your blog, it really looks quite fabulous.

    The box itself looks really handy too! I think I might buy one even if just to have all my other stuff kept in there... Katie can you tell me how big is the box? (even if with measurements if it's not too much trouble!)

    Thanks and great post!
