Everybody knows that February is the month of love and for this months Glossybox that’s exactly what they are celebrating. Their theme is celebrating the love with all the Glossies around the world. I love this idea it’s really lovely. Their box is fittingly named ‘Love Crosses Borders.’ The products inside have been chosen from some of Glossybox’s favourite brands across the globe. The design of this box with ‘Love’ written in different languages is wonderful and it has a great valentines feel to the packaging. I’m in love with it already, so let’s delve in and see what’s inside…
INSIDE THE BOX… 3 BEAUTY AND 2 SKINCARE
FLOSS BEAUTY My New Favourite Lip GlossThis lip gloss is by an American beauty brand called Floss Beauty and in pounds retails for £12.30. Lip products are a must for valentines when your wanting that glossy pout look. This has a smooth and hydrating formula which is also long-lasting. It’s in a nice pink shade which looks lovely and actually would pair up quite nicely with the cupid lip liner pencil also included in this box. (The next product down below.) Alot of people like matte finishes to lips so it’s nice to see a glossy one for a change.
SAINT LUXE Lip Liner (Cupid + Crush)Super happy to of received two shades in this lip liner set of Cupid and Crush by Saint Luxe. This retails for £23. Usually Glossybox would give either red or pink lip products and it’s a surprise which shade you will receive, pink is my go to favourite for lips and I always find that I end up getting the red shades instead so it’s lovely to not have one or the other this time and to actually get both red and pink. These claim to be very pigmented and a lip liner is a much needed product when it comes to enhancing the pout, so again perfect for valentines. Cupid is the pink shade and Crush is the red one. I’m excited to try these out.
UNIVERSAL BEAUTY COSMETICS Secret Flush Blush StickI have had this product before in a past Glossybox but quite a long time ago now. This is a secret flush blush stick and It’s worth £6.10. You can use this as a cream blusher and also as a lip stain product. It’s like a 2 in 1. It leaves a subtle shimmer rosy finish, which does look very pretty. It’s easy to blend and has a very lovely silky formula. It’s nice to see this product included in a box again.
FIGS & ROUGE Wonder Love Charm Glow ElixirFigs & Rouge have a lovely variety of products on the market and it’s amazing to see this brand included in a Glossybox. This is a super exciting product as it is a newly-launched product by a Uk brand. It’s their Wonder Love Charm Glow Elixir which is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins A, C and E and includes Rose Quartz and Rose Water too. It hydrates and moisturises the skin and gives it radiance with it’s subtle glow aswell. This retails for £35 and is by far my favourite product of the box. I am over the moon with receiving this product!
STARSKIN DreamkissThe brand Starskin has been in a couple of past Glossybox’s and I must say I adore their facial masks alot. This is a bio-cellulose lip mask which is worth £4.25 as it’s in a deluxe mini size. (The full size is worth £8.50 normally.) This product has a Swiss and Korean beauty expertise behind it and it’s a plumping and hydrating lip mask which helps achieve a smooth and soft pout. It has bio-cellulose sheet mask technology which means that the mask will fit perfectly onto the lips and it’s also infused with some very nourishing ingredients one being Coconut Juice. I can’t wait to use this on a pamper evening when my lips are in need of some hydration. The packaging I also love.
Overall, this box is perfect especially for a love theme! I am delighted with this months box I think that Glossybox have got the products spot on this time. The total worth of the box came to a massive £80.65. My favourite item is of course the Wonder Love Charm Glow Elixir and second would have to be the lip mask. I like how for this month they focused alot on the lips and products mainly for use on that area. Opening this box really gave me ‘love vibes’ and I have really loved sharing the contents with you all.
I would love to know your own thoughts and opinions on this box…perhaps you received this months Glossybox too, what did you think of it? What items do you like the look of the most? Do you think the products match the theme of the box well? I’d love to hear from you all.
