GlossyBox Valentines Day Edition


Mornin' Lovelies!

I was sent a GlossyBox to review a couple of months ago, and was thrilled to have a Valentines Limited Edition box drop on my doorstep recently full of lots of goodies! Great little pick me up!

I have a lot of love for GlossyBox, I think they're a right good girly treat for some epic pampering fabulousness! Each month a new box turns up with some great new products to try out, like I've said before, if you are on a bit of a budget and want a little pick me up treat the GlossyBox concept is great for just £10 per month (plus p+p) you can have a little treasure chest of loveliness!

I was quite impressed with the Valentines Day Edition, included was an Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner in Powder Pink, a Murad primer, a First Aid Beauty (FAB) body wash and a Davines Moisturising Balm and Cleansing Nectar.

I am yet to try out the Davines cleanser or the Murad primer, but I have given the Eyeko liner, Davines balm and the FAB body wash a try.

The Eyeko liner is in Powder Pink, it's a great shade to go with this seasons pastel trend but I have to admit, it's not really a colour I found I could do much with. I gave it a go but ended up using it on the inner corners of my eyes just to lighten them up a bit, maybe it's my lack of makeup artistry skills or this colour just doesn't work for me? The pencil itself is great, a lovely soft, sturdy liner, I will definitely be looking into buying shades more suited to me from the brand. I wasn't familiar with Eyeko but now I am I shall be having a delve into what else they offer.

The Davines items are really interesting as they are multi-purpose and designed to work on face, body and hair. My first thoughts were that they would be perfect for traveling as you have multi use essentials to save on carrying a million different little pots and containers. The balm is particularly nice, I have had really dry hands just recently and used a spot of it to try and perk them up a bit. A little bit goes a long way and the smell is fabulous, they are also made from nearly 100% all natural ingredients, definitely a great little treat!

And lastly I gave the First Aid Beauty body wash a go. I have had a hell of a cold just recently which has left my skin very dry and chapped around my nose. The wash was really gentle and wasn't overpowered with a tarty scent like a lot of facial washes, it has definitely relieved my skin of some of the redness that it had which is good and has left it feeling super clean. A full size bottle is between £10.00 and £13.00 dependent on where you pick it up from, which I don't feel is a bad price at all for a good wash if it works well for you. This is why something like GlossyBox is a great idea, you get to give things a try for a very small price!

Glossy are also running a Valentines Day competition at the moment to win a trip for 2 to Paris! Head over to the GlossyBox Facebook page to enter there's only a short time left to be in it to win it!

Big Love!
