Glossybox have had a couple of very strong months, so there was inevitably going to be a weaker month as it’s virtually impossible to maintain such extremely high levels; unfortunately what goes up, must come down. I’m writing this as if the Glossybox September 2017 contents is rubbish, which definitely isn’t the case, it’s just a little less exciting than last month.
The Glossybox September 2017 has a strong skincare focus with a with a total of seven products, four of which are skincare. There are just two makeup items, which are pretty good items, but I always tend to favour the boxes that contain more make-up, so that might be why I’m less excited this month.
The aforementioned makeup item is the Pixi Brow Tamer, a very welcome inclusion since I love Pixi and I’m going through a clear brow mascara phase, so the timing of this is great. The Monu Firming Fiji Facial Oil is a product that sounds really interesting as it’s aimed at dry and sensitive skin, which is often how my skin is behaving. I think the product most people will jump on is the StyLondon Silligel Blender, since this seems to be a bit of a craze for applying make-up – it’s apparently a lot like a beauty blender but doesn’t absorb product. I tried one of these a while ago (from another brand) and I wasn’t overly impressed, but I’ll definitely give this one a try.
I really like the idea of the Cetaphil kit that’s included in the September 2017 Glossybox as I think this is such a great way to familiarise yourself with a brand – hopefully they’ll include more sets like these in future boxes. The Cetaphil trio includes decent samples of the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, Moisturising Cream and Moisturising Lotion, and the only reason they’re low on my list is because my skin doesn’t react very well to Cetaphil. The Taylor’s 32 Flavoured Natural Whitening Toothpaste is only low on my list because I have it already, plus there’s only so excited you can get about toothpaste…it is a really good toothpaste though!

I do much prefer the boxes that have more skincare than makeup or haircare. Although this months glossybox isn’t as exciting as previous months. I am not fussed about the Cetaphil kit.
Ah that’s interesting – I think everyone favours one or the other. I have such tricky skin that I’ll always favour the makeup as I’m less likely to have any issues with it!
