February Glossybox.






Is it just me or has Glossybox's February offering come around really quickly? 

This month Glossybox have run with a Fashion Week Edition, providing you with 5 sample "to help you get through the most glamorous, and often most gruelling" week of the year.

I wasn't immediately bowled over when I unwrapped the box, but actually, I'm really pleased with it! 

What was inside? 

DuWop Venom Gloss in Buttercup. (full size £16/10.4ml) 

It smells delicious, a bit like spicy fruit bread. I've just whacked it on my lips and it's a subtle shimmer gloss with a tingly kick to it. 
I'm impressed with it, but I'm not a huge gloss wearer, It was nice for a tingly hit though! 

Impress Press-on Manicure. (full size £8.99) 

Before I begin, there is a bit old typo on the Glossybox information card, as It states this is £17.40 for a full size. So before you all panic, it's just a editing error. 
I was really impressed with the colour I was sent, If I'm in a rush, I always tend to go for a dark colour, and these will prove useful! Hopefully I can fit my nails as I'm not sure how easily you could shape these. 

Awupuhi by Paul Mitchell Wild Ginger Treatment Oil (full size £25.95/100ml)

I wasn't immidiately interested in this little bottle, but once I realised it was a) a hair oil and b) smelt of ginger, I was extremely pleased. I whacked a bit on the ends of my hair and it left silky smooth ends with a lovely subtle perfume. Impressed! Probably my favourite product this month. 

BM Beauty Pure Mineral Eyeshadow (full size £7.00/2g) 

This is a very generous little sample, considering I hardly ever reach for pigments. I was sent Dusty Road, a gorgeous gold hue that will look stunning on eyes or on cheekbones and collarbones in the height of summer. 

Como Shambhala Invigorate Shower Gel (full size £20.00/300ml) 

I always appreciate a shower gel sample as I love to put them in my gym bag, this has a great zingy fragrance and It won't go to waste, however I can't imagine spending £20.00 on the full size, however great it was! 

The Verdict. 

Personally, what didn't immidiately wow me has turned into a great box. I know I'll use or look forward to experimenting with everything on offer and I actually prefer this to last month. 

Have you had your box yet?

    1. I think it's a deceptively good box, once you've given the products a go, I think every one of them stands up to the test! x
