I can't believe January is over already, I mean it feels like just yesterday that it was Christmas time! Crazyness
So I received my Glossy Box this past week and thought I would share with you what was inside in case you guys are still umming and ahhing about subscribing to one of these beauty box services.
I know there was a lot of people complaining on Facebook about their box taking a long time to arrive, seeing as it is supposed to come mid-month and did not get here until this week but I didn't really mind too much. Being in Perth it tends to take a while for packages to come and since I knew it was on it's way it didn't bother me too much that it arrived towards the end of the month. Plus they are still a relatively new company here so I expect some kinks with the system.
This was my second Glossy Box and as I was really impressed with December's box (read my post here) I was excited to see what they would include this month. I have to say I wasn't as impressed as December but still think it's a great selection of products.
Enough rambling from me, here is what it included...
|Nivea Rich Nourishing Body Moisturiser 30mL ($5.40/250mL)|
|Sheer Cover Nourishing Moisturiser 30mL ($29.95/60mL)|
|Sheer Cover Lipgloss ($19.95/2.5g)|
|Kosmea Daily Facial Exfoliant 20g ($39.95/125g)|
|Mirenesse Tight Liner Hydra Gel Eye Liner ($29.95/2g)|
|Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi|
The stand-out product from this box is definitely the full-size Mirenesse Hydro Gel Eye Liner. Although it's definitely more of a liquid liner in felt tip form. I received mine in a gorgeous dark navy blue colour called Saphire Blue. It's so dark that it looks black but when it catches the light you can definitely tell its a navy blue colour.
I am also eager to try the Kosmea Daily Facial Exfoliant. It says you can use it as either a daily exfoliator or keep it on longer for a deep cleanse. I've never heard of this brand before but its natural and Australian made so what's not to like.
Also in the box were two products from the brand Sheer Cover, a full size lipgloss in Pink Praline and a facial moisturiser with SPF15. I'm not all that impressed with the lip gloss, mostly because I don't like glosses in pot form as I don't like to get my fingers dirty but the moisturiser is quite nice. It's a very lightweight formula which reminds me a lot of a Shiseido moisturiser I use to use for years.
The Nivea moisturiser wasn't all that exciting but is a handy travel size so it will get used.
Also included was a $25 gift voucher for clothing store The Iconic - which I have already used to purchase these awesome leggings. There was also a $5 off discount code to use for Glossy Box Man, which I probably won't be using as Blake's not one for metrossexualism lol
Ooo and last but not least there was some Ozzie Day temporary tattoos, which sadly I didn't get to use as our Oz day was quite low key considering the 41 degree weather!
Have you subscribed to a beauty box yet?? What did you get this month?
