Time for another Glossybox post! This month’s box hasn’t been my favourite but it does contain a good variety of products and some really great ones! This month Glossybox have focused more on the prep side of Beauty (as we all know that foundation and other make up looks a million times better with hydrated, healthy skin underneath.) So here are the products received that will prep and perfect skin.
Inside the box : 3 Skincare, 1 Beauty, 1 Hair product
OOLUTION Eye Love (15ml) – Wow this product was a great kick start to the box. Full size! Worth £30! I have not heard of this brand before but this eye cream sounds amazing. 100% natural formula which is rich in antioxidants, very hydrating and helps to reduce puffiness and dark circles. Clearly, does alot! Bonus is that on the packaging it says Organic + 65 ingredients. I love that about this eye cream, it focuses on many beneficial ingredients and not just one or two. Also the product is not tested on animals which again i love. The only downside to this product is that it’s made in France, why is this bad? Well when i checked on their website i don’t think they do shipping to the Uk yet so, i can imagine once i have run out this may be hard to get my hands on sadly.
FIGS & ROUGE Hydra-Activ Smart Nutrient Vital Moisture Day Cream (20ml) – I am so happy to of received a moisturiser in this Glossybox because i have very nearly run out of the Nip+Fab Kale Fix Moisturiser that i received in my January box. I absolutely loved that product it was perfect! So i am excited to try another new moisturiser that Glossybox have picked out. This is by a brand called Figs & Rouge and we received a sample size. Full size is 50ml for £28. So a decent price for that amount of product. It claims to be lightweight and gives you instant hydration that lasts a long time. I was intrigued to read the products ingredients, and there seems to be alot of goodness packed into this product. It contains Vitamins A, C and E, and also Hyaluronic Acid (known to keep skin plump, smooth and supple.) I am so excited to try this one out as it’s visible results are apparently smooth and soft skin, Fine lines reduced by advanced tissue hydrodynamics, boosted skin elasticity, improved collagen production and Anti-oxidants to help signs of ageing.
THIS WORKS In Transit Camera Close-up – Now if you love products that celebrities love you will adore this next one! I wasn’t sure whether to include this one in the Beauty products or Skincare as i think this product is abit of both… You can probably guess…Yes it’s a Primer 🙂 We received a 20ml sample, the full size is 40ml for £30. So our size was a generous half of that £15. This primer alot of people rave about including Victoria Beckham who reportedly loves it so much. It is a mask, moisturiser and primer all in one! I claims to plump and brighten skin, reduce skin’s redness and the appreance of wrinkles and gets your skin prepped, and primed all ready for your makeup. It contains a superblend called Bio Boost, which is This Works unique own blend of anti-oxidant plant oils which help to rebuild and protect the skin’s barrier. It also contains Hyaluronic Acid (Like the moisturiser i just reviewed) and Caffeine to revitalize skin. Which to me sounds like plenty of beneficial ingredients. 2 weeks ago i did a review about my favourite primer by Smashbox ( https://beyoutifulinsideoutblog.wordpress.com/2017/03/05/smashbox-photo-finish-foundation-primer-review/ ) but i will definitely be trying this out as it sounds amazing and will be interesting to compare the two!
SLEEK MAKEUP Eye & Cheek Palette – This was the product that was March’s Sneak Peek, subscribers had the chance to choose which palette they would like to receive. I chose All Day Soiree 030 as it contained some lovely neutral shades. I have heard of the brand Sleek before but haven’t had much good experience with them. I brought their contour kit a long time ago and it really didn’t look right, i found the product very hard to work with and quite cakey. But drugstore eyeshadows i do like so it will be nice to give this one a go. These palettes retail at £10 and contain two cheek colours and four eyeshadows. They seem pretty highly pigmented which is good and the eyeshadows are a mix of matte and shimmer which i love. The packaging i adore, matte black with a very handy sized mirror, all in a good travel compact size. I don’t often wear blush but this palette took my fancy as i think it would be nice to give it a try sometime especially as spring is just around the corner. I highly recommend browsing their other palettes in this collection as they all looked like they contained a good selection of shades depending on the look you want to achieve.
SCHWARZKOPF PROFESSIONAL BC Bonacure Oil Miracle Brazilnut Oil Pulp Treatment – This was probably the one item i wasn’t too keen on. We received a sample size of 30ml yet for 150ml it costs only £3.95. However on this description it does contain alot of interesting things and claims to do alot. You use this twice a week to achieve more manageable, smoother and shinier hair. It contains Argan Powder Particles that remove impurities from hair, Macadamia nut that nourishes and UV filters to protect your hair from the sun. You leave it on for the recommended time 5-10 mintues and then just rinse out. This sounds good and is cheap and cheerful if your looking for a hair treatment but i’m not at the moment so think will give this one a pass.
Overall, my favourite products by far were; OOLUTION Eye Love, FIGS & ROUGE Hydra-Activ Smart Nutrient Vital Moisture Day Cream and THIS WORKS In Transit Camera Close-Up. I hope you enjoyed unboxing this month’s Glossybox with me and do let me know if you received any different products or if you have tried any mentioned! I love to hear from you all.
