Glossybox is a monthly subscription box which usually contains 5 beauty, makeup or skin care items. This box costs £10 per month plus £3.25 postage.
Let’s take a look at June’s Glossybox.
111 skin – Eye Lift Gel
Sleek makeup – Plump Lip Crayon
Himalaya – Face Wash
Batiste – Volume Spray
BeautyPro – Black Diamond Mask
Manna Kadar – Sheer Glo
Now it’s time for a closer look at each item, size and retail price.
Manna Kadar – Sheer Glo (20ml)
This is a liquid illuminator, this also says you can mix it with foundation or wear alone. It doesn’t smell very strong at all and as I’m very pale I was a little unsure how it would appear on my skin however it does show up although maybe not as bright as I’d like. It does have a pinky tone to it and so I would blend out if you are wearing this completely alone.
This isn’t full size however full size of this product retails at £22.50
Batiste – Oomph my locks XXL volume spray (full size)
This is a beauty box staple, I think I’ve had this 3 times in travel size but this is the first full size I’ve had. I enjoy using this lightly in my hair to give it volume as I have very thin hair, although I don’t like to use too much of it a little bit goes a long way.
This retails at £4.29
111 Skin – Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel (5ml)
This gel apparently does everything you’d want an eye gel to do, reduces fine lines, reduces puffiness and helping reduce the appearance of dark circles. But then you have that price tag…oh the pain. On the plus side this small sample allows us to try a product that we may pass by otherwise. First impression is that it’s light, non irritating and smells nice but not over powering. Dark circles are something I’ve always been very insecure about, if this actually works then I could see myself buying the full sized one in the future (my poor bank balance).
This isn’t full size, full size 15ml of this product retails at £110
Sleek Makeup – Power Plump Lip Crayon (Full size)
This apparently contains a tingling ingredient that causes the blood to rush to your lips, causing them to look plumper. It smells nice and the shade is cute, a nude (1050 Notorious Nude) that will look good along side most makeup looks. The tingle is a light tingle, not uncomfortable but you can feel it.
This retails at £5.50
Himalaya – Purifying Neem Face Wash (50ml)
“Cleans & Purifies for clear, problem-free skin”. Neem is known for it’s anti-bacterial properties making it a good ingredient to use in a face wash. This is paraben free and hypoallergenic making it wonderful for those of us with sensitive skin.
Full size retails for £3.29
BeautyPro – Black Diamond Peel Off Mask (1 mask)
This mask is with activated charcoal which helps get deep into the pores and remove impurities. I’ve not had chance to try this yet but really can’t wait to give it a shot. I love a good face mask and pulling them off is very satisfying.
£4.95 for a pack of 3.
Another good box this month, although I get a little bored of Batiste hair products in beauty boxes but I don’t dislike any of the products this month. I’m not sure I’ll use the Sheer Glo as it will show as a big pink mess on my pale skin but I’m sure a friend will love it. I do wonder if the 111 skin eye gel will work magic on my dark circles? I guess only time will tell.
I’ve enjoyed the past couple of boxes from Glossy box and I feel like they’re stepping their game up. Keep it up Glossy box.
