January Glossybox

I thought I would throw in my thoughts on Glossybox and beauty boxes in general. I first subscribed to the December Glossybox when I got a voucher code to get the box for half price. I liked it, but I didn’t love it and I decided to wait for the January box before I made up my mind.

Here is what I got this month. 

Eyeko skinny eyeliner powder pink — at first I had no idea what I could do with the colour included, but after a closer look it reminds me of a darker version of Eye Bright by Benefit and I plan on using it in the same way. I like that the eyeliner has a handle so that it should always be easy to use. I have heard about this brand before so I am happy to try it. 

Clarins extra firming day and night creams — these were the odd ones out in the box for me. The card included specifically says that the Valentine’s day box is meant to make you feel extra special… reminding me to use some sort of anti-ageing product does not do that. That being said I have never used Clarins so it will be good to get the chance to try it. 

Fab — the card says this is a body wash, the product says moisturiser so I don’t know what this really is yet! 

Murad hybrid skins perfecting primer (dewy finish) — this I am looking forward to using. It is meant to reduce pores and give skin a “radiant glow”

Although I am happy to try everything out, I expected the Valentine’s day box to have more of a pampering theme or to contain makeup for a Valentines look. I wasn’t wowed at all when I opened this, probably not helped by the hype around it.

All that considered, I have now unsubscribed. I would rather save the £12/month and eventually buy some of the things on my wish list.

What are your thoughts on beauty boxes in general?
