The first beauty box I ever received was February’s GlossyBox and I thought I’d do a review for the people who are thinking of buying the beauty boxes . Even though you don’t get the same things every month its worth having a look at the kind of products that can come to avoid dissapointment when your beauty box finally turns up on your door step. February’s box had a big selection of products and below I’ve listed what products I recieved and what I thought of them.
Becca Beach Tint – Watermelon : At first I wasn’t quite sure what I’d do with this product as I had never heard of Becca before and I’m not an avid beach goer but I do actually like this product. Not only can is it a creme stain for lips but you can also use it on your cheeks too. Not a bad product overall but the only problem is its non-drying which means you can rub it off or somewhere else easily by mistake.
Awapuhi Wild Ginger by Paul Mitchell : I was very wary of this styling oil at first as I thought wont it just make my hair greasy? but it was actually a really good product. The best way I found to use this was to dry, style my hair and then add this. It added the perfect amount of shine to my hair and tamed any unruly bits that didn’t want to co-operate.
DR Bronner’s Magic Liquid Soaps – Lavender Hand Sanitiser : A few people I knew where disappointed with this product when they had it but even not been my favourite item to me this was so handy. Been a mum of two little girls especially one that’s still a baby this is perfect for my handbag. I probably wouldn’t buy it but I’ll use it until its gone. Only thing I’d say is only 1-2 sprays is enough don’t go mad because it has a very strong scent.
Como Shambhala – Invigorate Shower Gel: Perfect uplift after an hour at the gym but the scent is extreamly strong, you have to like herbal scents to use this. Lathers perfectly and a little goes a long way. My skin felt squeaky clean after using this which like I said after an hour at the gym is a blessing.
BM Beauty Pure Mineral Eyeshadow – Dusty Road : My favourite item in the box, yes maybe a little because its make-up but this pigment is so gorgeous its like a bronzed gold and I used it in my latest make-up look Movie Star / Red Carpet. The colour is extremely bendable and gives a true colour. Well worth the money.WARNING – if you haven’t used pigments before a little goes a long way and they can take a bit of practice to use.
That’s Febuary’s GlossyBox I hope this helped you.
