Yesterday the postman knocked on the door to deliver the latest Glossybox. This one was delayed a little as it was billed as the Valentine's Edition...
The box this month is a cute hot pink.
As always GlossyBox pays attention to the detail -
Of course this all means nothing if the content's don't live up to expectation, however I am more than happy with the content's of my box.
A closer look and swatch of the Eye Liner
What Is Inside -
Clarins - Extra Firming Day Cream - This is a rather generous 15ml sample and is apparently suitable for all skin types. I have already used this cream and it has left my skin feeling super soft. It is nice and rich but be aware it is heavily scented. This didn't have a little seal over the opening.
Clarins - Extra Firming Night Cream - Again, a generous 15ml sample (the type you would get in bonus gift packs when you make multiple purchases). This has a lighter, fresher scent and also leaves the skin feeling beautifully moistured. I think it is great that the day and night cream were in the box, brands often develop products to work in conjunction with each other and you get a good idea of how they would suit your skin with each other. This came sealed.
Clarins is an excellent inclusion in the box, I am going through a little love affair with the brand so was delighted to be able to try these.
Murad - Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer - Dewy Finish (5ml)
Murad is a brand that I have heard of but never tried any of their products. I am a big fan of using a primer under my foundation so look forward to giving this oil free primer a whirl.
FAB (First Aid Beauty) - Gentle Body Wash
This body wash is fragrance free, has a creamy texture and is free of Parabens and harsh chemicals.
I haven't tried anything from FAB before so I think it is great that in this GlossyBox there are two brands that I am able to try for the very first time and both are generic enough to be suitable for my skin type.
Eyeko - Skinny Eyeliner in Emerald Green (other shades were sent out)
I have been really impressed with the products that I have tried from Eyeko previously, although I haven't purchased anything since their relaunch and redesign. This item is full size and worth £9.50. I have green eyes and think this shade will make an excellent addition to my makeup bag. It is a really pretty metallic green shade, brighter than the Stila liner that was included in the October box.
I will use all of these products and as a box I think it is really rather fab, fulfilling the brief of what it set out to do, the only thing I would say is that I cannot see what the link between Valentine's and this month's GlossyBox is apart from a heart sticker and a heart sweet! :-)
