I haven't posted a Glossybox post up in such a long time, over a year now and was sent the 3 year anniversary box so thought i would do a little update. First things first, I cannot believe that Glossybox has been around for 3 years already! Where on earth has the time gone? I remember posting about the first ever box here which honestly doesn't seem like two minutes ago!
The packaging is pretty much exactly the same, comes in a hard pale pink box full of black tissue paper and ribbon. However instead of getting the one card that explained the contents and gave a description on each you now get a fold up booklet with in depth information about each product.
I literally ripped open the packaging like a kid at Christmas (so apologies for the lack of pretty packaging pictures!) and was pleasantly surprised with what was housed underneath the tissue and ribbon.
Included in this months box:
This is a teeny tiny 2ml sample of this perfume that personally i had never heard of before (just me or have i been living under a rock?). I was pleasantly surprise when i took the lid off and rubbed it on my wrist. It is an extremely floral scent, that i dont find too overpowering with notes of bergamont, rose and sandalwood. Just wonderful! The only downfall? This badboy will set you back £67 for 50ml, wowsers! I shall savour my small sample then!
Kryolan for Glossybox highlighter in Cashmere
Kryolan is a brand i have heard of but never had the chance of using, i also love a good highlighter so this is win win. At 4.5g this is a full size product that retails for £12.95 and is actually available to purchase on the Kryolan website however i imagine in slightly different packaging. It is a stunning shimmery champagne colour that i will get a lot of wear out of.
Figs & Rouge Hand cream
This 20ml sample of Figs & Rouge Mango Mandarin hand cream is the perfect size to throw in your handbag or for travel. As sad as it sounds i absolutely love the tube and the scent is just stunning, it smells exactly as it suggests. The full size tube is 4 times the size of this sample (80ml) and retails for £6.95.
Yves Rocher Pink nail polish
This nail polish seems so small however it is a full size bottle that retails for £3.60. I actually dont mind a small bottle as i have so many bottles of nail polish as it is and rarely paint my nails as i go and get them done so many bottles go to waste and go gloopy! I have used Yves Rocher before (their mascara is amazing FYI!) The shade is called 'Rose', simple and straight to the point, it covers well and isnt as sheer as i was expecting.
Philip Kingsley Elasticizer
For me, this is the winning product of the box. Out of all the beauty boxes i have tried and tested over the years i have never ever received this after lusting after it for so long and it coming up a few times. This is a 40ml sample size with the full size 250ml retail for £38 making this worth around £6. I am yet to try it, but i will be sure to have a review for you when i have. This is a pre shampoo treatment that claims to moisturise and nourish the hair.
Comfort Zone Cleansing Milk
I have never heard of Comfort Zone and im not the biggest cleansing milk fan, great start Sinead! However, I am willing to give most products a bash and you never know i might surprise myself! This is a full size product also that is 200ml and retails for £19.50 so a great beauty box find!
Overall, I was pretty impressed with this months Glossybox. It includes 3 full size products so for a monthly, sample box this is pretty incredible. The products are worth just short of £50 so not bad for £10 a month.
