I’m a little behind this month but here it is, the September Glossybox review. This month Glossy collabed with Red magazine and it was fun to have a bright red box. I wish I was more resourceful with the boxes themselves as each month they end up in the recycling bin once I’ve taken my bloggy pics. Let me know if you do anything with your boxes. All ideas are most welcome 🙂
Let’s start with my favourite item in the box. Better Than Sex mascara by Too Faced. I have heard a lot of good things about this product and it is safe to say it didn’t disappoint. The wand and the formula help to extend and lift my eyelashes. Plus, this lasts all day! I can’t think of any negatives with this; it’s amazing! The packaging is cute too. I will be going to buy this full sized product when I finish my Benefit They’re Real mascara which was my all time favourite until now.
Next top item in this box was the Revlon Colorshow Nail Polish Gel Envy Top Coat. This is amazing! The applicator brush is like a double brush which helps apply quickly and smoothly. This top coat dries super quick and is rock hard. I am a big fan! I normally use the Nails Inc top coat but I kinda think this is better. Hello bargain!
Another month, another face mask! This I am not complaining about because I love a pamper. I tend to use face masks twice a week so it’s good to try something new. The Hydro Face Mask by Vitamasques was a new one for me. This did as it said on the packet, it moisturises your face and the smell was pretty good. However, the mask itself was a pain. It comes in two parts which were huge and were falling off of my face no matter what I did. For me, and my little face, I would rather use other masks on the market. Sorry.
The Organic Pharmacy product was the one I was really hoping to love but it didn’t work out for us. The Antioxidant Lip Balm did not make my lips soft, it made them more dry and they even started to crack. Not a good product for me. I’ll stick to Clarins comfort oil.
I have heard a lot in the blogger/vlogger community when it comes to Rodial products so I was excited to find a product in my box. The Smokey Eye Pen in black was a great find. It smudges well and stays in place all day. I am very happy with this one.
As I mentioned in my previous box, the MUA eyeshadow palette was not the one I had asked for so they sent me the right one this time. The neutral brown shades are amazing and the pigmentation is spot on. Thanks Glossy!
Finally, I had a sneaky extra in my box. I had a sample of the new Body Shop face mask range which launched recently. The Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask was a dream! It applied so well and then it started to set. The heat sensation was pretty intense to begin with but then it was fine. When I washed it off my skin felt like I had been reborn! This is a product we all need in our lives and I can’t wait to buy all of the masks.
Hope you enjoyed reading and let me know what you thought about your box. Oh exciting, my next box will be free thanks to my Glossy dots 🙂
