It’s Glossybox time again! This month there’s a bit of a “top to toe” theme as there’s something for everyone; a couple of items of make-up, 1 skincare, 1 haircare and 1 body care. As usual, here’s the contents of Glossybox March 2014 in order of my favourites:
Sleek Make-Up Pout Polish
I’m guessing this is the product most people would be excited about as the Pout Polishes have a fantastic reputation. I’m not sure if we all go the same shades or not, but the shade I received is Bare Minimum; a pink leaning nude that I think most people would like and get use from. This is full-sized and costs £4.49.
Bellapierre Cosmetics Shimmer Powder
Bellapierre are an extremely popular mineral make-up brand, so it’s always nice to receive a product from them. The shimmer powder is apparently the ‘ultimate multi-use product’ as it can be used as an eyeshadow and highlighter, but it can also be added to other products such as lip glosses and nail polishes to add a hit of shimmer. There are absolutely loads of different shades available and again I’m not sure if all boxes contained the same shade. I received the shade Earth and the included product is full-sized and worth £12.99.
Dove Hair Therapy Intensive Repair 60 Second Treatment Shot
You can’t beat a bit of a Dove hair care so it’s fab that this treatment shot is included in the box. It isn’t exciting in any way, shape or form, but it’s lovely nonetheless! The ‘shot’ size is the only one available and it’s £1.49.
Helenere Maitrise du Temps
This is far down on my list due to the fact that I’m soooo overloaded with skincare at the moment so I haven’t an hope of trying this anytime soon. Having said that, I’ve just given it a little swatch and it feels glorious on the skin; incredibly nourishing without any greasiness and you can actually see the small patch of skin where it’s been applied as it appears more refined, so this is definitely one for the try pile! In the box there’s 10ml which is worth £38.50.
Mitchell and Peach Body Cream
Eurgh! Why? Why ruin a perfectly good box with yet another body cream? I have soooo much body cream just sitting around thanks to it’s constant inclusion in beauty boxes and it’s a real shame! I’m fairly confident Mitchell and Peach have featured quite a few times in previous boxes too, yet nothing has jumped out at me from the brand so it’s a shame they keep turning up. Full-sized is worth £36 for 180ml and you get a 40ml sample in the box, which is a great size for travel.
When I started writing the post I was pretty disappointed with the contents as nothing got me too excited. Having said that, there’s a good and solid selection, all of which are likely to get some use at some point thus making this a box well worth the money, albeit nothing to write home about. The value of this box is over £65, so you are getting a helluva lot for your £10 (plus £3.25 P&P), more info of which can be found here – link.
