First Glossy Box of the new year!

Friday, January 18, 2013
Here is what I received in my first Glossy Box of 2013 and I have to say...I am not very impressed and yet again I have cancelled my Glossy Box subscription because of the awful products! I received my Glossy Box a couple of days ago via Hermes. 
I received six products in my Glossy Box and here they are...I am only happy with a couple of them. I received a Lacoste fragrance sample, a glossy box eye mask, a Murad eye cream, Monu microfoliant, BM Beauty 'dewy perfection' finishing powder and a Sanctuary spa sample duo (serum and mask). 
1. Glossy box 'glossy dreams' eye mask: It is made of a really silky smooth material and it feels very comfortable when it is on but I don't personally use these products so I will have to throw this away - I can't really give it to any one with it saying 'glossy dreams' on the front...

2. BM Beauty 'Dewy Perfection' Finishing Powder: I have had a couple of eyeshadows from BM Beauty but my problem with this is that it is in a loose powder form which I find annoying and messy. Although despite this product being a bit messy it gives a gorgeous finish to the skin - luminous but not greasy looking. The only product I am really happy with in this box. 

3. Lacoste Eau de Lacoste: I have tried this perfume for the past couple of days and I am underwhelmed by it. The scent is sweet, floral with some musky notes which is very generic and the longevity is really quite poor, from my experience. 
4. Monu Instant Radiance Mirco Exfoliant: I have so many cleanser samples now that they keep being included in beauty boxes! I don't want any more cleansers, I will have to give this one away to a friend. 

5. Murad Hydro-dynamic Ultimate moisture for eyes: And another eye cream, I will use this one up as even though the box is pretty big, the eye cream tub is really small (only 3.5ml). 

6. Sanctuary Spa 30 day thermal transformation sample duo: There is a 3.5ml sachet of serum and a 7ml sachet of face mask in this set - obviously wont last 30 days and I don't have the best experience with Sanctuary skincare. 
Here is a swatch of the BM Beauty finishing powder which I think looks gorgeous, especially on pale skins but on tanned or darker skin I don't think this would work. 


  1. I have always wanted to try a beauty subscribtion service! Would you recommend Glossy box?


    1. When Glossy Box first started it was fantastic! But now, for me, the products are not great (the ones I receive in my boxes) and I wouldn't recommend it.

  2. Im just too scared to subscribe to a Glossy Box only because they might not be worth the money at times :(

  3. Am Sorry that you didn't like the box ,


  4. i got a few differnt things in my glossy box to you. but they still look lovely to try :)

    Pipp xx

  5. i love the idea of the glossy box but i just dont use that many products!
    this one looks great though.

  6. Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to know
    a lot about this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something.
    I believe that you simply can do with a few percent to drive the message home
    a little bit, but instead of that, that is wonderful blog.
    A fantastic read. I'll certainly be back.
