Today’s posts are going to be all about the goodies in this month’s beauty box offerings. Starting with Glossy Box… this month’s box is the ‘High Flyer’ themed box, all about beauty bits for on the go and travel.
In my box I received a little bottle of the Philosophy Purity Cleanser, a Oceane Make Up Remover Pen, a sample of Juicy ‘Noir’ perfume, a Jelly Pong Pong make-up pencil in an aubergine shade and some eyelash curlers.
Overall, I’m a little bit ‘meh’ about this months box, something I have felt for a while with the standard Glossy Box – the special edition ones are fabulous and have had some really exciting content. But generally, the usual boxes have felt like something is missing recently.
For me, the best bits are the eyelash curlers (really great quality, solid, not at all flimsy) and the Philosophy Cleanser which is one I have tried samples of before and liked – so the small size is ideal for weekends away etc.
I think the problem is that I can’t quite put my finger on what it is about this Glossy Box that left me feeling a bit indifferent. Maybe the fact the make-up item is a shade I wouldn’t wear, in which case that is a personal thing – not something that really should reflect on the box overall really. Or maybe it’s the inclusion of a perfume sample – that anyone can pick up for free in a department store or perfume counter – I just can’t help but feel disappointed when these are in there. But the last box (the turquoise special edition) was a great one, so it’s just a bit hit and miss I guess!
