This is a bit late as the post was a bit delayed but here it is! This months theme was a Beauty S.O.S box to include essential items to come to your rescue during the party season.
First impressions of this box I have to confess are a bit underwhelming and probably the first box I’ve opened and haven’t reached back for it. Let’s start with my favourite item out the box and that’s the eyeshadow pallet.
Now we also did have an eyeshadow pallet last month, which is a bit much getting another as I take ages to use one but this is very gorgeous. It’s by Stylondon and is called the Eaton. There is 3 matte shades and 6 shimmer so it’s a good size. The RRP is £9.99 so also very affordable.
My attempt at swatching the colours 🙈
Next is the lipstick I saw so much hype about, it’s by Huda Beauty and would cost you £18 from their website. I got the colour Venus but there was also the choice of another shade called Girlfriend I believe.
It’s a creamy chocolate-y nude, it does have a strong smell to it I noticed but applies nicely.
The third item this month is a cleanser by Context. It’s a 2 in 1 Micro-Derm Regenerator and it’s a deluxe mini size of 30ml worth £6.50. A full size of 120ml would set you back £26.70. It’s cruelty and fragrance free too!
The next item seems to follow on from the last as it’s a moisturiser. It’s by Yourgoodskin and is a Balancing Skin Concentrate to restore and maintain skins natural balance. It smells very fresh and reminded me of Johnsons baby lotion (in a good way!) and feels lovely on my skin. Shame it’s only a 10ml deluxe mini size (with a price tag of £5.83 for it!)
Next up is my slightly annoyed by item. It’s a hair mask by Novex. I received a very similar version to this item in June and when I saw what I thought was exactly the same item again I spoke to Glossybox. They are very good at getting back to you promptly and pointed out that this one is especially for curly hair whereas my other one wasn’t. They were quick to point out that even if I don’t have curly hair it’s fine for all hair types.
I did like this product back in June but I still think it’s a bit of a box filler item as I know not everyone got it. However I did so I will use it at some point. It’s another deluxe mini size as well (RRP £2.10) which is unusual for Glossybox, they are well known for their full size generosity.
Lastly this month Glossybox included a perfume sample by Chloe. They called it an extra treat which I guess it is but as I get my Feelunique sample service every month I get these a lot so doesn’t feel like a treat. I got the classic Chloe scent which is gorgeous.
So all in all not a wow box for me this month, I hope this means they are saving a great box for December for Christmas time! The box total this month came to around £42 so still a lot more than the £13.25 month price. Next month there is a shimmer roll by Bellapierre Cosmetics to add some sparkle for the festive season!
