GlossyBox Back To School: September 2018

Tuesday, September 18, 2018
It's that wonderful time of the month again when subscription boxes are coming in and one I'm always excited for is GlossyBox. I subscribed to GlossyBox myself years ago and loved it but a student budget doesn't allow for pretty things so I had to cancel; however I'm very grateful that I am now sent the boxes to review from the incredibly lovely people over at Glossybox!

*GlossyBox - September 2018
The September box contains six items, five of which are full sizes items which is amazing! Subscription boxes in the past used to be filled with lots of sample sachets and I'm so glad that those days are behind us because it wasn't the best value for money as a customer but now it's fantastic. The brands in this months box range from Grow Gorgeous, Wet Ones and Bang Beauty to Daily Concepts, Model Co and Beauty Pro, only a couple of which I've tried.
*Grow Gorgeous Scalp Detox (£7.37, deluxe mini size)
Let's start with the product I used first and was most excited about! I have heard amazing things about this brand and this particular product sounded perfect for me as it is a vegan friendly, cruelty free scalp treatment that removes impurities that block your roots. My hair is fairly thick and coloured treated with dry ends and a fairly oily scalp so I thought it would be interesting to try out.

The products itself is similar to a face scrub cleanser and it has physical gritty particles within it as well as pomegranate enzymes and natural castor oil. The instructions state to use a generous amount which I did...which then acted as an almost glue in my hair. It wasn't a pleasant experience using this product at all however the results were fairly impressive. Overall, while I liked the results, the awful process of applying it and rinsing it out has definitely put me off using this product again sadly.
*Model Co X Karl Lagerfeld Lip Pencil in Rosewood (£25, full sized)
I love any product with the name 'rosewood' as I know that it's going to be a shade I'll love and the same goes for this product. The shade is just gorgeous and something I'd wear on a daily basis so I'm very happy with this product already. Also the price of it more than pays for the box alone! The lip pencil is fairly creamy, the pigmentation is good and I adore the shade.

*Daily Concepts Your Mini Facial Scrubber (£8.85, full sized)
Next up is a brand that I've tried from a different subscription box and loved - Daily Concepts. Their travel sized mini facial scrubber included in the box is the gentle option which my sensitive skin is grateful for. It would have been perfect for me to take on holiday last month! It is gentle but still feels like it, combined with my cleanser, deeply cleanses my skin.

*Beauty Pro Detoxifying Bubbling Mask with Activated Charcoal (£4.95, full sized)
One of my favourite things about the September box is how diverse the products are - from a travel sized facial scrubber to a lip pencil, scalp treatment, wipes and a mask. I'm very happy that there's only one skincare item in the box as typically I think that there are too many skincare items per box. This award winning mask claims to refine pores, reduce oil, clean away blackheads and detoxifying your skin - it sounds like a miracle and I can't wait to use it.
*Bang Beauty Eyebrow Cream (£16.80, full sized)
I have been looking for a new brow product to try recently so I was initially pleasantly surprised by this item but sadly the shade doesn't match my brows at all. Bang Beauty isn't a brand I've heard of but it looks great and I would have loved to try this eyebrow cream!

*Wet Ones Be Fresh Antibacterial Wipes (£1.19, full sized)
This box for me is a mix between items I've needed recently and a couple of disappointments and this product falls into the former category. Wipes are always something handy to have in your bag but I'm going to keep these in my car as I know they'll be used the most there. They are dermatologically tested and pH balanced so they can used on the the body, hands and childrens skin too.

Overall, my favourite products from this months box have to include the Daily Concepts facial scrubber, Wet Ones wipes and Model Co lip pencil. I really wish I could have tried the eyebrow cream as it sounds promising but the shade isn't quite right sadly. I liked this months box and I especially liked the variety of items included but it hasn't wowed me quite as much as previous boxes have done; however that's definitely going to change the next months box as the preview (which is always on the information leaflet) is very exciting!

What do you think of this months GlossyBox? Have you tried any of these products?
