The Back to Basics Box – Glossybox January 2014

Starting with the good, Glossybox have had a subtle, however attractive little make over this month. Package is bigger (does this mean we’ll get some bigger items?), the cover is deeper and it’s glossier – – making it a much more eye-catching and also durable storage alternative. Sadly, what’s inside package is much less appealing. The themeof this month’s box is back to fundamentals, when they state fundamental, do they mean affordable? I’ll tell you what I obtained and let you determine…….

-Be Moisturising Skin Cream? 13.50/ 33g Space NK here

I was certainly pleased to see Japan’s no. 1 marketing vitamin-enriched “cult” skin care cream. Perfect for dry locations like lips, joints, knees and also follicles, its non-greasy mix of antioxidants as well as camphor calm and also safeguard skin, leaving it calmed, moisturized as well as beautifully soft. I offered it a fast test last evening, it smells kinda medicated, like a Vicks or sudacream. Apparently it’s well suited to hands as well as feet, yet with these tinsy small 2ml examples, I’ll never recognize. 2X3g samples worth? 1.63.

Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash? 10.25/ 250ml right here

Balance Me, like Monu, is a brand that’s starting to obtain a little bit repeated. I don’t challenge trying more than one item from a brand, however when it ends up being nearly a regular monthly fixture it obtain a little annoying. this cute body clean with juniper, bergamont and also lavender smells charming a will certainly can be found in useful when travelling. 50ml container worth? 2.05.

The Vintage Cosmetic Firm Floral Slanted Tweezer? 8right here

these look charming and seem like a substantial tweezer BUT I already have Tweezerman and HD Brow Tweezers (likewise sent by Glossybox) so I’m a little bit tweezerred out. I make sure they’ll make a nice present. Complete size product well worth? 8.

Anatomicals Puffy The Eye Bag Killer Wake-Up Under Eye Patches? 6/3pack

Anatomicals, an additional shiny regular! These under eye spots will certainly help reduce the appearance of great lines, wrinkles as well as revitalise the fragile skin around your eyes. I’ll give these a try, could can be found in handy on a put up over Monday early morning. Two pack worth? 4.

Elegance UK CC Lotion? 4.99/ 25mlright here

You go all your life without a CC Cream then two come along at the same time (I’ve just uncover and fallen for Olay’s CC lotion, review below if you’re interested). it’s a thumbs up for a CC lotion however I find Beauty UK to be an actually economical brand as well as I haven’t liked any one of their items so far. Full dimension well worth? 4.99.

Sorry this month’s review is pretty scathing. I just truly really feel dissatisfied with the contents. Are these one of the most modified charm items? … I do not believe so. It’s been a while since Glossybox have presented me to a new treasure like HD Eyebrows or Weleda Body Oil. I’m thinking of tryingBirchboxrather.

I would certainly enjoy to hear your ideas. you sign up for Glossybox? Are you delighted or significantly let down like me?
