I know, I know it's nearly September
(How did that even happen)
However as usual I am extremely late at jumping on the bandwagon
Not only did I only get my August Glossybox this morning
but this is my first ever beauty box subscription
I had thought about signing up for boxes before
and I had actually signed up for the Feel Unique one just before they stopped making them!
I love watching my favourite Youtube gurus opening their beauty boxes
and finally decided that I wanted in on the action
Then came the big desicion!
which box should I sign up for?
which box should I sign up for?
There are now quite a few to choose from
Beauteco Box - Is a fairly new box that only launched in May and as I hadn't heard to much about it yet I was a little bit wary
Birchbox - Is the American brand that took over from Joliebox UK, I always watch EleventhGorgeous' Birchbox Vs Ipsy videos on Youtube and I'm never overly impressed with the Birchbox, I always absolutely love the Ipsy Bags but unfortunately they aren't available in the UK
Glossybox - Is a tried and trusted brand, I have watched plenty of unboxings and read countless reviews and have always been pleasantly surprised with the contents. I decided that Glossybox was the best fit for me.
So I signed up online for £10 a month plus postage
It came really quickly
which I was impressed with
I was so excited when the postman came this morning
It was almost like getting a birthday present.
I know some people would rather pick and choose what goes in their box
but I really love the element of surprise
and would rather not know until it arrives at my doorstep
Now onto the box!
I really loved the packaging
the box is really sturdy and I will definitely be using it for storage
the contents are wrapped in pretty tissue paper and a nice ribbon
which just makes it seem really luxurious
This months box has a 'Highflyer' theme
all of the items are chosen from different countries around the world
and are under 100ml so you can take them inflight
This little leaflet includes an interview with the newly appointed CEO of Glossybox UK
as well as some information on each of the products included in the box
Makeup remover pen
This is a nifty little pen for correcting any mistakes you make whilst applying your makeup
it also comes with 3 refill nibs.
I really like the concept of this as I ALWAYS sneeze after putting my mascara on!
(does this happen to anyone else?)
So I really hope this lives up to my expectations
I recognised this brand as soon as I opened my box
I love trying new skincare so I'm excited to try this
It came in a 30ml bottle which isn't bad
If I like it I will definitely think about repurchasing as a £5 off voucher is included
for use in Debenhams
Emite Make Up (Sweden)
I was really excited to see these in my box as I actually really needed a new pair
My No.7 ones are a hot mess! As I have had them forever
They also come with 3 extra pads which is really good.
Apparently these retail for around £20 which I am really impressed with as the whole box only costs £10!
Jelly Pong Pong (UK)
2 in 1 Eyeliner & Shadow
Another brand I recognise
Eyeshadow pencils are EVERYWHERE right now!
I actually bought a few NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils online which I really like
So I am really excited to try this.
I love the colour I received and think it will go so well with my MAC Cranberry eyeshadow
Juicy Couture (USA)
Viva La Juicy Noir Perfume
I love trying out new perfumes
Although I do tend to wait until Christmas and my Birthday to get new ones
Samples like this are great to pop in your handbag for a night out
and this one smells amazing!
So I know this months Glossybox hasn't had rave reviews from other bloggers but I'm really happy with what I received in my box.
I think 3 full size products for £10 is pretty good going and it will be good to try the samples!
I can't wait till Septembers box already!
What did you think of this months box?
Do you think I made the right decision going with Glossybox?
