Glossybox September 2011

 I was actually having a good nights sleep last night (which is a rarity when you sleep in bed with two toddlers, i assure you!) and couldn't believe it when i was rudely awaken at 8.30am by my doorbell ringing. I wouldn't have minded so much if the girls had been ready to get up but they were fast asleep, booo!
Anyway i suppose losing out on an extra hour of sleep was made up by the fact the postman was delivering this months glossybox!

I only recently gave in to the hype and signed up for glossybox so this is my first one i've ever received, i'm quite impressed.

For those of you who have never heard about it. Glossy box is a beautifully presented (glossy!) box containing at least five luxury beauty samples (some of which are full size!), enabling you to keep up to date on the latest beauty trends and products without splashing out a tonne of money.
A monthly subscription costs £10 (plus £2.95 p+p).

Each both is packaged so well in a lovely sturdy pink box with the glossybox logo on top (is is just me who was excited to find a use for the it?!) Inside the box is a card with a quick overview of each product and of course wrapped in black tissue paper, tied with a pretty pink ribbon is the samples!

This months box consists of:

A sample of 'Plum' perfume by Mary Greenwell the well known make up artist.
This scent does seem to be very strong and floral which initially makes me think this won't be for me. Nevertheless i may give it a go.

Rahua Shampoo and conditioner which says it is for ideal for colour treated hair, eager to give this a go!

Omorovicza thermal cleansing balm. Not something i usually go for, as bad as it sounds i don't do anything to look after my skin apart from slap a bit of moisturiser on now and again so it will be nice to treat my skin a little.

Nuxe Huile prodigieuse dry oil. Not particularly sure what i'm going to do with this yet, i think i will be doing a little research before i try this out.

HD Brow kit. Although i wasn't wow'd by most of the samples, i was pretty excited to see the HD Brow kit in there as i was actually looking into buying it already and they retail at £19.99! Such a perfect little palette containing four matte shades that can also be used as eyeshadow or eyeliner. I no doubt will be posting a more in depth review on this so look out for that!

All in all i love the concept of glossybox and i'm pretty happy with this months products. I'm already excited to see what i get next month!

Are any of you already subscribed, what did you get in yours?
 If your not subscribed, do you think you will be looking into it?



  1. Wow I like the idea of a glossy box, sounds very exciting :)

  2. Sooooo jealous about the thermal cleansing balm. I didn't receive it. :(

  3. Happy to swap for something if you wish?!
