It was a lovely surprise to find a Glossybox on my doorstep yesterday morning, as although I’m not a regular subscriber – I have been debating on signing up for several weeks and the wonderful samples we received in this month’s themed box may just have swayed me.
From reading other bloggers reviews, I know that Glossybox occasionally ‘themes’ their boxes, and this month beauty subscribers were treated to a ‘Natural Box’, inspired by April’s Earth Month. The box itself is 100% biodegradable and I personally think it looks like a handmade keepsake box (which I love!).
The contents inside the box certainly didn’t disappoint this month, as I can honestly say I love every single product. All but one samples were full size and the lip liner is in a very similar colour to the one I’d normally go for. It is described as ‘nude delight’ but it is more of a natural pink with a shimmer of gold (it sounds strange but it looks very natural). It also went very well with the Fig & Rouge Lip Balm that we also received, which smelt amazing and hydrated your lips for much longer than I expected. A full size version costs just £3.29 and you can use the promotional code FIGS20 at the checkout to receive a discount! It smells far nicer than Vaseline and keeps them soothed and soft for much longer. Plus, they have really pretty packaging (what more could you want?!).
The other products included were Caudalie SOS Thirst-Quenching Serum, Ayuuri Natural Body Wash and Yes! Nurse Protect your Lovely Hands cream. All three products were of use to me, as I can never have enough hand cream (I leave different pots of it in different places, as I am lazy like that) and the Thirst-Quenching Serum is something that my dry skin needs desperately.
I gave the serum a try and absolutely loved it – however I think it might be a little too strong for my skin (as I have very sensitive skin), so I’ve given it to a friend to try out. The body wash however is based on fruit, plant and flower extracts and is very natural, so luckily this was really lovely to use – and the smell of rose wasn’t too overpowering but equally – it did leave a lovely fresh, natural after smell.
Overall, I was very pleased with the contents of this box as they were definitely in keeping with the natural theme and were of very high quality. I will definitely be using all of the products given (minus the serum) which is great considering you’d normally pay over £50 if you bought all the items separately. The beauty of beauty boxes is that not only are products offered to you that you would probably never normally try but if you do like what’s included – a huge percentage is taken off what you’d normally pay for the product itself.
This Glossy Box Edition has definitely swayed me even further into subscribing for Glossy Box on a monthly basis, as I forgot how much of a lovely surprise it is to come home to – and how high quality the products included are. So, watch out for regular Glossy Box reviews!
