Glossybox have hit their one year birthday mark, doesn't time fly?
And with that comes the anniversary box*.
Noble Island - Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel - Cornish Hedgerows
£20 / 250ml
This to me, is quite a unisex scent. It contains gooseberry and elderflower, amongst other scents. It does smell quite Summer-y to me but it's not something I would personally go out and buy. The price is a little off putting. Though the product is nice enough, lathers up well and doesn't leave behind too much of a scent on the skin.
Weleda - Face/Body Milk
Products from Weleda only contain natural ingredients. This body milk is scented with wild roses. It seems a bit overpowering to me and I don't like the scent itself. The formula is a lightweight, runny lotion that absorbs without much work at all. It leaves the skin super hydrated though. If you can get past the scent, this seems like a wonderfully moisturising product.
Let's Go Lashes - 2
These are just the kind of lashes I go for! Not sure how you explain the style of them but they give off a more natural look.
I will post about these when I use them.
Uniqone - All In One 1 Hair Treatment
£13.99 / 150mlThis is dubbed as the first leave in mask on the market for hair that offers 10 benefits that the hair needs:
- Repair for dry and damaged hair.
- Shine and frizz control.
- Heat protection.
- Silkiness and smoothness.
- Hair colour protection with UVA/UVB filters.
- Easier brushing and ironing.
- Incredible detangling.
- Long lasting hairstyle.
- Split ends prevention.
- Adds body.
Whilst I can't speak on the long term benefits this has for my hair, I've been using it on wet hair as heat protection. It's a handy size little bottle and a good sample in case you don't get on with the product. I haven't noticed a drastic change but my hair doesn't feel any worse for using it.
£65 / 100ml
This limited edition fragrance is described as 'a bouquet of white violets, with a hint of raspberry and musk'. It's quite a woody scent and reminds me of something more 'mature'. At first I don't like the scent but after it's sat on the skin for an hour or so, the woody notes fade and it becomes much more floral.
Lolita Lempicka - Si Lolita
£63 / 100ml
'The Eau de Toilette reveals a softer heart, a delicate bouquet of Sweet Pea, Hawthorn and Magnolia. The scent lingers with sensual Amber mingling with the woody, powdery accents of Iris.'
I wasn't expecting to like this as much as I do but it's very different to what I usually go for (fruity, sweet scents). It smells just like something else that brings back some nice memories. Odd, as I can't put my finger on what it is. I prefer this over L'Eau en Blanc by miles. It's a nice refreshing change.
The perfect accompaniment to any girls handbag or makeup routine. A nice touch and something that will come in handy as I'm always losing mirrors!
I thought I'd post these extra pictures from this evening. Cheeky little Pepsi decided she was stealing my balloon. She decided to take it for a run around the landing, with it hanging out of her mouth ...
'Oh noes I killed it!'
'Meh, still good'.
There was a lot of drama surrounding this box. Isn't there every month? But that aside, Glossy didn't make this out to be some spectacular affair like the Harrods box.
I'm not going to dwell on that though as it's just silly.
Overall I think this was a fairly decent box. I would have been happy with the Collection (2000) liner or even the HD Brow products but I'm still happy with what I received. The only thing I won't be using is the Weleda cream, for reasons as stated above.
Happy birthday Glossybox!
