September Glossy Box Review

September 24, 2017

Hello my lovely's,

Today I am bringing you a review of Glossy Box - a monthly beauty subscription service that costs £10 per month plus £3.25 P&P. The money is automatically taken from your account in exchange for a beautifully wrapped box full of goodies to be delivered during the first week of every month.

I have been subscribed to a number of different beauty boxes for about 5 months or so now and I have to say that Glossy Box is by far my favourite subscription box. The price is great and I am rarely disappointed when it appears at my door every month.

September isn't my favourite box I've received but there is a few products that are worth mentioning.

Siligel Blender (full size) - RRP £5.99
Do you remember when silicon blenders were all the rage and everyone and their dogs had one? I have to admit I have tried silicon blenders in the past and I have to say I wasn't a fan before and I am not a fan now. For me, I like it when my makeup sinks into my skin and blends nicely with my natural skin however, I find with silicon blenders the makeup just sits on top of my skin and leaves a false, thick layer of streaky make-up. I have watched numerous videos on different ways to apply make-up with them but it's safe to say I will be sticking to the traditional sponge beauty blender.

Pixi By Petra Brow Tamer (full size) - RRP £12
I was on the hunt for a clear brow gel and to be honest there's not much to say about a clear gel. It does it's job, it's not too sticky but still manages to keep my stray brow hairs in place for the whole day. The price point is in the mid range between drugstore and high end and if I'm honest, it's a good brow gel but I'm not sure whether I would justify £12 on repurchasing.
Cetaphil Healthy Skin Trio - RRP £8.99 - £14.99 per item
The mini trio I received consisted of a facial cleanser, body moisturiser and facial moisturiser. In my opinion there isn't much to say about moisturisers accept it was nourishing and my skin did benefit from the hydration qualities in the cream. I would say the facial cream was very kind to the skin, I am always dubious of trying new facial products but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to enjoy all of the benefits without any itching or soreness.

Jeanne Arthes L'Eau de Rose (full size) - RRP £20
I am in LOVE with the perfume. Omg, it's incredible. So not only is it a full size product it smells absolutely gorgeous. During this month it has been my daily go to. It claims to be an elegant yet sensual fragrance with a modern reinvention of rose. If you ever get the chance to smell this in store then definitely do so. It's such a light fragrance and for £20 you can't go wrong.

MONU Firming Fiji Facial Oil - RRP £29
Facial oil is a completely new concept to me but I can now confirm that it is now a staple in my nightly routine. It's said that you can use the oil both day and night however, I am up early mornings and I never make time to a dedicated morning routine but after a long day at work there is nothing nicer than massaging a few drop of this oil into your skin. I wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and hydrated. If you're in the market for a new oil to brighten and firm your skin then definitely give this one a go.

Overall, a good month and variety of products. I'm so excited for my October box and I still can't believe that autumn is upon us.

Do let me know what your favourite subscription boxes are as I'm always on the look out for the best beauty boxes.
