Drumroll please, ladies and gentlemen. Here we have the Glossybox that finally – finally – made me click ‘cancel’ on my ongoing subscription. If you’re a regular reader you’ll be aware that I was flip-flopping on cancelling for quite a while. The occasional good products or interesting boxes made me hold out for a while, but with the March Glossybox it seems we’re back to the same old, same old of tiny samples of uninteresting products. I’m now fully in the market for a new beauty box. I tried to sign up for Birchbox last night before realising they don’t ship to Ireland so if anyone can recommend a new box for me please leave a comment!
So, time to get down to the box. Here’s what was in my Glossybox for March.
Upon opening the box the first thing I spotted were sachets. I hate to see sachets in my Glossyboxes – they’re always tiny samples of something, usually too small to get an accurate test of the product so that really bothered me first off. Then, when I realised they were for Vita Liberata Luxury Tan I was even more disappointed. I never, ever use fake tan. I’m paler than pale with that classic Irish complexion so it just doesn’t suit me. Won’t be using this one.
Next up, a tiny sample of Dove intensive repair hair treatment. I don’t mind this so much as a product and I will use it – although I suspect the sample will be too small an amount to treat my hair fully – but it’s just not an exciting product to receive. I’m almost certain we’ve had this or something similar in the past, and to me the whole point of getting beauty boxes is to try new and exciting products. Conditioner for damaged hair, while it may be practical, isn’t fun or exciting.
Third out of the box was Bellapierre eyeshadow in Deja Vous. It’s a nice pink colour, possibly a bit too sparkly for me, but fine.
Mitchell and Peach body cream was a good-sized sample. The product smells nice and I think I will use this.
And finally, the one product I’m quite happy with, which was the Sleek Pout Polish. I got this in Bare Minimum, which is a very light pink shade, and I think there was also a darker pink available. I’m not a huge fan of the texture of this product but I love the smell – it’s just like a vanilla candle.
So there you have it. I haven’t actually seen any bloggers’ reviews of this box so far so I’m not sure what other products were available besides these five, but that is it for me with Glossybox. Onwards to a better beauty box!
