My third GlossyBox has arrived I don’t know what it is but there is always a bit of excitement when these turn up in the post every month. Even my work colleagues want to know what is in it. I’ve already heard rumours that this months box has a theme of Eco-Friendly / Organic products and I’m looking forward to finding out what these products are. My initial reaction is I am going to love every product that is in this box and I am so glad I had this box this month. Here is what I received and what I thought about each item.
Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst-Quenching Serum 10ml – Full Size 30ml £29.00 : I really like this product it left my skin feeling revitalized and soft. At first I wasn’t sure if I would use this but it does make a difference to my skin but as lovely as the product is though I don’t think I will be buying this product once the sample has run out as its a lot to pay for a product which goes in between cleaning and moisturising. I will say that if you have dry skin this is definitely a product for you as it cleared up the dry patches of skin I had and made my skin look healthier. A refreshing product to add to your daily facil regime if your willing to pay the price… I can imagine is a full size bottle would go a very long way so its all depends if you think its worth the cost.
Inika Cosmetics Certified Organic Eyeliner – Full Size £11.75 : I’m always excited whenever I get make up and I love getting eyeliner so when I happened to receive the black eyeliner from Inika I couldn’t wait to give it a try. Again I have my favourites so this eyeliner had a tough act to follow and in all honesty it just didn’t live up to my expectations. It gave a good colour, smudged well but I got a little bit in my eye and my god did it sting which was very off putting. Also the pencil itself is quite stiff so if you want dark dramatic eyes you may well be there a while getting the intensity you desire which is never good when you have the rest of your make up to do or your limited for time.
Ayuuri Natural Body Wash – Full Size £4.95 : Hmm I have mixed feelings about this product because I’m not a huge fan of the fragrance I got. I received the coconut and even though the product itself it quite nice to me the fragrance puts me off now if I had received the rose then it may have been perfect. As a product it is something I could definitely see myself buying I think its the right amount of indulgence without the hefty price tag and it leaves your skin feeling silky soft.
Figs & Rouge Lip Balm – Full Size £3.29 : I loved this product it may have been the cheapest item in the box but it was lovely and now I carry it everywhere with me, I had the rose one so of course for me it already had an advantage. The best thing is it can also be used on dry patches of skin too which instantly soothes them, it does have an unusual texture (a little bit bitty) but it soon smooths out. Great product for the price and would definitely buy this.
Kai Perfume Oil – Full Size 3.60ml £41.00 : At first I was unsure of this product but as soon as I tried it I really did like it. It’s not as oily as I imagined and it sunk right into my skin. It lasted all day without been over powering and I found the scent for lack of a better word relaxing. Its not greasy at all but for the price I won’t be buying it as its just too expensive for what it is and for the quantity you receive.
