Review: September Glossybox

This months box brings a special edition with a beautiful design by Maggie Li. With many going to London Fashion Week, Glossybox have incorporated her into the design of the box. She is and up and coming illustrator and the design which she has created is gorgeous. I love the style and it brings more of a flare to the boxes.

The contents of the box this month had the theme of beauty again. There’s a good selection, along with some cheating samples again (come on Glossybox! I can pick perfume samples up from Boots). I received: Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream, Lady Gaga Fame sample, Rodial Glamoxy Snake Serum and 5 Minute Facial, Body Shop Vitamin E Cream and L’Oreal Professional Mousse and Gel-Cream. A nice selection of products I’d forgotten about, wanted to use and never heard of before.

I’ve seen quite a bit online recently about the Balance Me range so was quite pleased to get this. I don’t really ever use eye creams but the formula is fairly silky and light and soaks into the skin nicely. It feels quite cooling but I haven’t really been able to put the ‘smoothing of dark circles’ claim to the test yet.

I really do hate getting perfume samples! It annoys me because I can pop into shops and just pick them up. That being said, I haven’t had chance to try Lady Gaga’s debut perfume yet. According to the description, it’s a black liquid which becomes transparent once airborne supposedly like the soul of fame…deep. It smells really nice though. It’s not my usual sickly sweet scent but has a lovely floral smell but with a very faint fruity undertone to it.

I don’t really ever use mousse or gels but it’s worth giving a go. On first sniff, the L’Oreal hair products just smell like a rather generic soap, not horrible, but not the nicest of scents. The mousse felt a bit stiff in my hair but once brushed through you couldn’t feel it. I’m yet to try the gel but I’m not too excited by the mousse, nothing amazing.

Now the Radial Snake Serum is something I’ve wanted to try for a while. It has a semi transparent appearance and claims to instantly reduce lines and wrinkles. Now this part has been a bit tricky to try on my skin as I’m only 21. It does leave your skin feeling silky soft and smooth though and I’m hoping the 5 Minute Facial will be just as nice.

The Body Shop Vitamin E range reminds me of when I was younger. I used to use this when I was growing up, especially the lip balm. I had completely forgotten about it so this was a nice little reminder. The cream itself is light and moisturising and just a lovely all-rounder. Just what you need when your skin is neither dry or oil, an in the middle moisturiser.

Once again, I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and if you want to get your own Glossybox they are £10 each (+£2.95 p+p). Head over to the GlossyBox site for more info!
