Do you subscribe to any magazine’s or beauty boxes? I’ve just received my first one from Glossybox to review for you ladies.
A cute little keepsake box with new beauty items to try. I have subscribed to magazines before, and I wanted to give a beauty box a try. My daughter has tried a few and she raves about them.
Not knowing what your going to receive is a bit like a little birthday surprise! Some products are full sized and some are mini. One thing that I like about this idea is that you get to try different things that you wouldn’t normally pick up in the shops. When you sign up for anything between a once only box or a yearly subscription, you tell Glossybox your beauty preferences so that you get items that would be of interest to you.
I think this is a fantastic idea as a gift. you can send a Glossybox to a friend or family member for 3 months for £28.50 plus postage and you receive five products each box. I’ve had many a magazine subscription as a present but I love this idea. A bit like a grown up Jamboree bag! Anyone remember those?!!
Thre’s a whole list of products that are supplied on the website here if you wish to have a browse, and some very well known high-end brands are on that list.
Let’s go through the gifts that I received…
Monuspa Aftersun Lotion – I really like this. A good body lotion That smells of citrus. I will definitely use this.rrp £19.99 It can be used on the face too.
Two Papanga “No snag” hair ties. I wouldn’t wear them out in public, but definitely handy for indoors. rrp £4.99
A Macaroon shaped tint and lip balm in Crushed Berry. A cute little item popped into my handbag. A good colour that you can pop on when your lips feel dry. rrp £5.99
Bellapiere Banana setting powder. This was my favourite item. There’s a huge craze going on for this at the moment.I was eager to try, and it doesn’t dissapoint. Great for any darkness under the eye’s and counteracts any redness you may have. I’m using it to cover a couple of blemishes that’s not dissapearing, and it really helps. rrp £25.00
The last item is a fan brush to apply that Banana powder. I would have been happy to dip my blusher brush straight in, but after watching the recommended tutorial on the glossy box website I changed my mind. rrp £4.99
And so that’s it. The box unwrapped! What do you think? I think I certainly got my moneys worth, and the Banana powder has been interesting and useful to try. The only item I wasn’t too keen on were the hairbands, but they will still get used.
I have a little offer! You can get 50% off your first Glossybox using the code “SUMMER” here That’s such a bargain, so go on treat yourself!
