Glossy Box Review

GlossyBox is a fab new craze that is such a fantastic idea if you're a beauty junkie!
I find myself wasting money on full sized products that I end up not liking or they don't agree with me, it also puts me off buying a lot of things. Thanks to GlossyBox you can try sample sized products and see if how you feel about them before spending out on the full sized products.

Each month you will receive a gorgeous box with 5 high-end samples in them.
I received October's box which had 6 products in to celebrate GlossyBox's 6th box anniversary!

The modest sized boxed was packed full of wonderful samples:
Dermalogica Age Smart - MultiVitamin Thermafoliant
Dermalogica Age Smart - MultiVitamin Power Recovery Masque
Dermalogica Age Smart - Renewal Lip Complex

I've only ever tried Dermalogica products back in Beauty School, I'm not sure why i haven't tried them since but i love these products! They make your skin feel super soft and moisturised. I will definitely be investing in the full sized tubes.

My favourite is the is the Renewal Lip Complex, this lip treatment is amazing! It's glossy, moisturising and also seems to plump my lips?! It stays on well and is without a doubt my new favorite lip moisturiser and will live along side me from now on.

I liked 1 out of the 3 perfume samples, I'm so fussy with perfume - i love sweet, fresh scents but i really dislike strong floral musky scents. Calypso was my favorite, it was sweet and fresh but unfortunately i wouldn't pay full price (£65 50ml) for this.

Love this colour! It's a beautiful light blue with shimmer. I did notice is took a long time to dry but the results were very pretty.

I've never tried Stila products (not sure why!) but I'm glad i got to try the Smudge Stick - it's beautiful! It has an olive/brown base with a gold hue. Stunning along the upper and lower lash line.

I am extremely impressed with GlossyBox and the service I received. I think it's great that i can try products at the fraction of the retail price to make sure they suit me, although it may also make me buy products i may not have been tempted with before :)

GlossyBox is £10 a month (+ shipping), every month you will receive 5 products in the post for you to sample - the process is quite exciting! 

Have you tried GlossyBox? What do you think?
