I have been soooo busy lately that I just haven’t had chance to try most of what’s in this box. (Excuses, excuses…)
Why am I writing about it then? Because I didn’t want to let my lovely readers down completely, obviously.
Burt’s Bees Lip Shine
This is a lovely little lip gloss from Burt’s Bees. The only problem is, I’m a bit odd and every time I use lip gloss, I develop a tickly throat and cough until I have to wipe it off… So, I’ve not really given this a test run. Can you blame me?
Lollipops Eye Pencil
How pretty is this? It’s a retractable eyeliner pencil in ‘Black: Goodbye Moon’. Lollipops is a brand that I’ve never stumbled across before, it’s French. This pencil is supposed to be anti-aging… (Quite offended that Glossybox think I need that yet.) It also has Vitamin E, so it’s nourishing and it doesn’t contain preservatives either.
The fact that it’s retractable is great because you don’t need to sharpen it! It costs 14 euros, which is just over £11.
Green & Black’s Organic Butterscotch Chocolate
Now this didn’t last long. Yum.
(It was a special treat from Glossybox for being a subscriber for a year! That’s lovely of them, isn’t it?)
Monu Face Oil
This is Monu’s Soothing Hawaii Facial Oil, with Cardamom, Sandalwood and Lavender.
My skin’s been spotty recently, I don’t want to risk making that worse by smearing my face with oil… So I’ve not tried this. I have tried Monu’s bath oil though; which is gorgeous!
A full sized bottle of this, which is 100ml, costs a whopping £26.
H20+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment
Again, this is something super-nourishing and hydrating for skin. Which is great, if your skin needs it. It’s not, if your skin is already spotty. Glossybox do say that it’s oil-free, but I don’t really want to risk it.
H20+ is also quite a premium/expensive brand. A full-size tub, which is 50ml, costs £27.50!
This is also ‘age prevention’, as it reduces the appearance of fine lines. What are you trying to say Glossybox?!
OGX Argon Oil Conditioner
Okay, confession time: This is another thing I ashamedly haven’t got round to trying yet! A large bottle costs £6.99 from Boots. I’ve seen this in shops for ages and keep on meaning to try it!
I will try to write reviews of all the products that I’ve not been able to try yet in the coming weeks!
