Just a quick warning, this post contains a lot of photos (apologies)!
So this month I took the plunge and subscribed to Glossybox. The main reason was because I knew they'd have a birthday box and I thought that it would be worth subscribing on one of the 'themed' months...
This was my little revision break so I felt the need to include a cup of coffee in shot!
I was so impressed and super excited about the packaging! As I said in my previous post packaging always plays such a huge part in receiving things in the post, so well done to Glossybox for putting so much thought into it!
Cute little Glossybox balloon and mirror - another really cute touch!
So the first item is some Eldora false eyelashes... I am so happy with mine because I will definitely wear them on my next night out! I will probably post a makeup look when I eventually go out after this stressful exam period!
Next, Neal's Yard Remedies rehydration rose daily moisturiser... I'm not a fan of the smell of this. It does have a rose scent but it reminds me of the smell of a Barbie I used to have when I was younger. I may sound like a mad woman, but you know when dolls have a scent to them that is sort of like plastic? Well that's what it smells like to me. And I tested this on my hand and have come out in a terrible rash so not a great product for me.
I was afraid I'd receive a shower gel... I have so many to get through! This doesn't smell particularly feminine, in fact it's something my brother would use in the shower. However, it is a nice scent and it's a decent size.
Another iffy product... I don't use gel eyeliner and if I was to use it then I definitely wouldn't choose gold! I tried it on and it clashes with my skin tone and is really not flattering... Definitely a miss.
And finally some Lolita Lemnicka perfume samples. They do smell gorgeous. But two perfume samples... Not particularly impressed, but is that me just expecting too much?
So, what do you guys think of the products? What products did you receive?
As a themed box I was not overly impressed... Despite my initial excitement of receiving my first ever box and the impressive packaging, I've come to the conclusion that they could have included something a bit more exciting perhaps... Maybe next month will be more of a surprise?
