Hurray it’s Glossybox day!!!
I’ve been getting Glossyboxes delivered to work now for almost 6 months and where I thought I would go off them they have actually been pretty fab and I’ve ended up using every sample I’ve been sent!
All you need to do is fill in a quick survey so determined what type of skin / hair / colourings you have and if you wear a lot of make up/ keep it natural or like mixing it up etc so they can personalise your samples a bit better and your good to go. The best bit is that if you fall in love with any products you can generally buy the original product at a discount through its website!
The November box hasn’t failed to live up to the past few months…
Ayuuri – Indian rose face cream
A beautifully fragrant face cream with Indian Rose, Jasmine and Aloe Vera, it keeps the skin moist and protects from ageing elements. Rose is a wonderful stress-reliever. Used as the main ingredient in our soothing cream, it calms and moisturises the face. Rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants, it protects the skin from pollution. Coupled with Jasmine, it has an irresistible fragrance, and works with Aloe Vera to regenerate the skin
This smells really lovely and isn’t too heavy once its been applied. Normally I really don’t like rose scented things but the jasmine really balances it out. I’m slightly amazed that this is a huge 200ml tube but loving it!
Burberry- Body Eau De Parfum
Burberry Body Eau de Parfum is an effortlessly sensual, fragrance for women, woven with an eclectic combination of refined ingredients. The scent opens with top notes of fresh green absinthe, illuminating peach and delicate freesia; at its heart are floral notes of natural rose absolute and iris, gently blended with warm sandalwood. Its base is made up of woody cashmeran, creamy vanilla, amber and musk notes.
A really handy handbag sized sample of Burberry’s latest fragrance. I normally wear Diesel – Fuel For Life but this is quite nice if a little girly for me. Perfect for when I’m running from work to drinks!
Alison Claire – Mango Body Butter
The Alison Clare mango body butter is made with organic mango and cocoa butters; this contains the anti-aging influence of retinol, antioxidant action from green tea, mango and vitamin E, and anti-microbial protection. Then there’s the rejuvenating action of white willow and citric acid, and calming aloe vera and comfrey. All of these fine ingredients have been selected to smooth and improve your skin.
I quite like this body butter… the initial smell is amazing! It does feel slightly heavy on the skin so not an everyday moisturiser but as it smells so fab I’m very excited about using this one! A great size too at 50ml I can see this lasting for a while.
Nails INC – Porchester Square
The perfect nude nail polish. Chic, fashion forward and ultra glossy this flawless nude is flattering on all skin tones and works with any outfit and for any occasion.
A dinky little colour sample of Nails INC nude polish. Not 100% sure on the colour… I don’t think I would have picked it up on my own but that’s the whole point of these boxes I suppose! Will wait and see what it looks like but could be a nice one for the office?
And the one I was most excited about…. Dermalogica- Daily Microfoliant
Daily Microfoliant® had built a cult-like following over the past 10years – launched as the first daily-use exfoliating product.This gentle micro-exfoliating power utilized Rice bran and botanical brightening agents to smooth skin texture and balance pigmentation for a more even complexion.
My skin never behaves and I have been wanting to try the Dermalogica range for ages so very excited to try this one out and it feels fantastic. It’s a bit weird to get powder that turns to a paste but feels fab and my skin is feeling great! Watch the youtube vid below to see it in action…
Well think I got a pretty good selection and I’m really looking forward to using all of these this month! Any of you guys get a Glossybox? Did you get anything different?
