BEAUTY: | Glossy box, March 2013 review.

So this was the first Glossy box I've received, after hearing so much hype about them I decided to give in and order one. My first thought was wow the box is quite small, from photos I was expecting a box that was a little larger than it is. This months box was City Chic, the products in this box seem to be perfect to take to France this week, the perfect size and type of product!
I do have to say its really nicely packaged and looks pretty. 

Inside my box I got -
Juicy couture -Couture La La Perfume 1.5ml
Nails inc varnish - St James, 4ml
Jelly Pong Pong -2.5g
Tresemme - Salon Finish, Extra hold hairspray, 100ml
Elizabeth Arden - 8hour cream skin protectant fragrance free, 7ml
I'm not a huge fan of Juicy Couture fragrances and I didn't really like this much, it just wasn't a scent for me so I gave it to my sister. I'm not sure how to describe the scent either really. Sweet perhaps.
Full size product prize £63 for 100ml.
I love this nail varnish, super shiny and it dries rather quick and has a lovely bright finish. I've had it on since Sunday and its barely chipped! Its a brilliant product, I'm considering buying the full sized one!
Full sized product - £11 for 10ml.
First of all I've heard amazing things about this product and I have to say its made the skin I tested it on nice and soft, I have it packed in my case for France due to the cold weather I thought it would be perfect for my skin. The only complaint I have is I'm not a huge fan of the smell.
Full sized product £25 for 50ml.
I love Treseme hair products, and this is great. It doesn't make my hair feel dry or britle when I've used it plus the bottle is the perfect size for my bag! It has a good hold and doesn't smell too bad either!
Full sized product £4.69 for 500ml.
I love this product I never usually go for light coloured lipsticks or glosses and this was a nice change. It makes my lips feel soft and the colour just brightens my natural colour up a little. It lasts quite a long time too. Its a wonderful product, and it came full sized!
Full sized product £12 for 2.5g.

So overall what did I think? I thought that Glossy Box was actually good value for money as I got good products and a full sized one I'm considering getting a second box and seeing if its just as good. It definitely got me to try products I normally wouldn't. I may purchase a different beauty box in the future so that I can compare the two.
What do you think of Glossy box? Do you have any beauty or monthly boxes that you recommend?


  1. This is definitely the best beauty box haul i've seen so far! It looks great. Love that you got a Nails Inc varnish & the Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush looks great too.
