And I’m initially disappointed!
The concept I love (read more about GlossyBox)
The excitement and anticipation I love
The packaging I love
But the products…
Not so much?!?!
Ciate Nail Enamel (13.5ml RRP £9)
Illamasqua Powdered Metal in Ether (15g RRP £22)
Orla Kiely Eau de Parfum (5ml sample)
Ultra Sun Face SPF (15ml sample)
Weleda Pmegranate Body Oil (100ml RRP £19.50)
I’m not going to let my initial disappointment cloud my judgement. A full review of the products and service will follow, let’s just say my expectations haven’t been fulfilled.
I would have been really happy with the Ciate nail enamel – but Shrek green aint my style
I realise at face value this looks like a lot of products for £10 – but it’s only worth it if they’re products you’ll actually use.
Whatsmore – such is the power of the beauty blog, a quick search and you can find out what other people received in their box = GlossyBox envy. Variations on the products this month includes Xen-Tan self tanning product, False Eyelashes and Illamasqua Lipgloss – all of which I would have been very happy with, oh and Ciate Nail colours that are much more wearable than SHREK GREEN!
Perhaps we can start a GlossyBox swap service?
