This is a late review of my Valentines Glossybox, I've had a good amount of time to use all the products now so I feel I can review them in a little bit more detail. I really love the packaging design of the themed box (which I will definitely use again) and also the heart-shaped lollipop was a cute little extra. The product information also includes a step by step guide on how to rock a bold lip, which was nice to see. I've just received my March Glossybox and I'm really impressed, so i'll be sure to share that one soon.
Docteur Renaud Raspberry Soft Cream, Full-size 50ml £25.00 - I hadn't heard a lot about this brand before opening my Glossybox, but I have seen them displayed in a Marks & Spencer's beauty hall. I was a bit confused whether this was a moisturiser for your face or body, but it is for your face. I love the scent of this product, it smells just like a victoria sponge cake. I must admit it was a bit scary putting something so strongly scented on my face at first, but it is very gentle and smoothed my skin instantly. The product also seems to contain a lot of natural ingredients. 
Model Co Eyeshadow Duo in Bronzed Goddess, Full-size trio £18.00 - Again this is another brand I hadn't really heard a lot about. This little product is perfect for on-the-go girls that need to take a day time look to evening. It has a very handy mirror and the shades are very wearable, great for a brown smokey eye! The consistency of the shadows are of high quality but there seemed to be some glitter fall out when I applied them.
Micabella Cosmetics Blush in Siera Suede, Full-size 9g £34.95 - I really like how natural mineral blushes look on the skin. Micabella's collection is made of 100% natural mica. The pigments can be used as eye shadow, lip stick, nail polish, mascara, bronzer and highlight. This may seem like a small sample but I know this product will last me for ages. I received the shade Siera Suede, which is a lovely peachy pink that I think would look great for the summer months when you don't want to be wearing heavy make-up. It is quite hard to get the product out of such a small container, but I usual pat some out onto the back of my hand. The full-size seems to be quite expensive though, so I'm not sure I'd repurchase.
Anatomicals Body Cleanser, Full-size 300ml £5.00 - I enjoyed using the Anatomicals body scrub we received in a past Glossybox, so it was nice to see another product from them. I don't really see their products as a luxury, but they are nice for everyday use. It has a lovely scent of Rose and Jasmine which you can even smell after washing the product off. It's quite a thick consistency, so lathers up really well in the shower. I was impressed with the size of the sample and this isn't even the full-size! I also love the bright packaging and the play on words in their product titles.
Helen E Cosmetics Raspberry Lipstick, Full-size 3.5g £8.00 - Another brand that was new to me this month. I'm not really a fan of the packaging, but the product itself is really creamy and pigmented on the lips. I got the shade 'Raspberry' which is a really nice pinky plum and very flattering on my skin tone. I think this shade goes along with the Valentine's theme very nicely!
It's lovely to discover new brands and products I wouldn't have maybe picked up if it wasn't for Glossybox. However, It would be nice to see what other beauty boxes have to offer. What did you think of the Valentine's Theme? Have you tried any other Beauty boxes like Birchbox?

  1. Hi just found your blog! This glossy box looks very sweet, I really like the lip colour - could potentially be a dupe for some of the MAC deep red lipsticks. I'm so eager to try out Glossybox but I'm stuck with the decision of whether it will be worth it or not! Hm :) Great post!
