Finally sorted out my Glossybox subscription by taking up a 12 month subscription plan. This means my monthly boxes are cheaper at £8.50/month instead of £10. I still pay the same shipping of £3 but at least I’m saving some money. The subscription is still paid monthly by direct debit and is taken on the 1st of the month. The boxes are dispatched from the 4th and will arrive within a few days.
This months Glossybox is all about Empowerment with a range of products from innovative entrepreneurs that have made dreams a reality. This month, we celebrated International Women’s Day and I think this box is the perfect accompaniment. This monthsbox contains 4 full sized products along with a handbag sized hair product.
The first product in this months box for me to try was the Essence Cosmetics glow to go illuminating setting spray. For me, this did keep my makeup in place however this is way too glittery to wear everyday. Retailing at £3.30 this will be amazing for Pride or festivals but not for daytime.
The second product was the Tony and Guy illuminating hair perfume retailing for £7.99 (full size price). This smells absolutely divine and left my hair with an extra shine that I don’t get from my shampoo. My hair didn’t look or feel greasy after use either.
The third product in this months box was the Bellapierre kiss proof lip creme in the shade Muddy Rose. It looks like there are 4 different shades that you may receive in this box. Muddy rose is a pink toned neutral shade that will work with any eye look. The applicator is really thin so you can get a good line around the lips. The formula is long lasting but not too drying so it’s perfect for long days.
The penultimate product for me to try was the BYBI Beauty plumping lip balm, retailing at £9. This is a really thick balm that only adds a slight plump to your lips. I’ve never been keen on these lip plumping gizmos mostly because they plump too much and others have mentioned them been painful. However, I love this as it’s not painful and doesn’t give you too big a pout.
The final product in the March box was the Laritzy Cosmetics Dew Pot in the shade Utopia. In the pot this looks like it has a pink undertone with a gold shimmer, however on the skin you don’t see the pink hue at all. In fact, you can barely see the gold shimmer unless you put loads on which is such a shame as in the pot it looks amazing. This retails for £15.30.
Overall, I’m really happy with the March Glossybox and I love the theme. With 4 full sized products and a sample from a top brand, you’re getting your money worth. I like some of the products whose value still outweighs the cost of the box so trying the ones I didn’t meant I wasn’t spending anything extra.
