For the past few months I've felt a bit 'meh' about the contents of my Glossyboxes, so wasn't overly excited when the March one* arrived earlier this week. It turns out I was wrong to pre-judge, as I think this is one of the best boxes I've had in months!
Inside this month's box are four full-sized products, plus two decent travel sizes of shampoo and conditioner.
Essence launched into the UK a little while ago and I've been impressed with their budget friendly makeup and nail polishes. I haven't yet tried the Lash Princess Volume Mascara that's inside my Glossybox, but anything that promises to give length and volume is a winner in my book. At £3.30 this is definitely a bargain mascara - I just hope it lives up to it's claims!
Every time I spot a nail polish in a beauty subscription box I get a bit over excited. This full-size ncLA polish is a super bright pastel orange shade that I will definitely get a lot of use out of during the summer; I really love these kinds of shades. ncLA is a premium nail polish brand and each bottle normally retails at £13.
Another great product in this month's box is a Sleek Pout Paint. These are fantastic dupes for OCC's cult Lip Tars and like the originals, Pout Paints can either be worn alone, or mixed together to create your own custom lip shade. You really only need a teeny amount of this to get a bold lip look, so believe me when I say start small and add more if you need to. These usually retail at £4.99 each. I have the shade Port (a deep berry) but I have a feeling there might be a couple of different colours floating around in the boxes this month.
Last up are the travel sizes of Dove's Youthful Vitality Shampoo and Conditioner, which are designed to help hydrate brittle or ageing hair. These are 50ml tubes so enough for a good few washes - I'll be saving mine up for a weekend trip away as they're the perfect size for my travel bag.
All in all I think this is a great box - I really like the mix of skincare, haircare, makeup and nail polish that they've packed in and I hope future boxes keep up the good work.
Glossybox costs £10 per month (plus postage) and can be ordered via the Glossybox website.
