Glossy Box Time! You know that time of the month the postman brings our little pink boxes of joy or disappointment! I've had mine a bit earlier this month so I could feedback on some of the actual products rather than first impressions like alot of other Glossy Box reviews.
Nail wraps just aren't my thing, I cant put them on for the life of me so I was a bit sad seeing them in the box. I did get leopard print ones though which is nice though. I don't know how I feel about them being included as well as Im sure only 3-4 boxes ago they already had some in. I keep wanting to buy Illamasqua Freak whenever I go past a counter but Im still not sure if I really like it or not. The smell is totally different from any of the perfumes I've sniffed before. I think because its a unisex perfume its muskier and stronger than I'd normally try. We shall see next time Im near a counter if I give in or not!
Philip Kingsley Elasticizer is something I've wanted to try for a longtime, its got rave reviews but the price has always put me off. It left my fine hair feeling really nice and soft and moisturized, which I was pleasantly surprised about. I've never used a pre shampoo treatment so I wasn't sure what to expect! The hand cream is actually really nice, I really use them that often but this one smells delicious, Like kiwis! and Its not sticky or greasy at all thankfully! I've not tried the Dead Sea Spa Magic Mask yet because of a reaction I've had to a different product I've been trying!
Overall its a average to good box, Nothings full size (apart from the nail wraps) but the samples are good generous sizes (apart from the vial of perfume) from good quality brands. Compared to other Glossy Boxes recently this isn't probably going to excite people as much as it could do, but its nice to see Glossy Box settling into doing sample sizes, which to be fair is what the service is all about. I dont know yet if Glossy Box have something special lined up for the December box or not, but I reckon it might be worth subbing for next month as you'd kinda expect a "special" box as its Christmas!
ADDITIONAL DISCLAIMER: I am now a "Glossy Box Ambassador", which means I'll be working with the brand on various bits of content, providing feedback straight to the brand and getting my boxes free from now on. This doesnt affect my feelings towards Glossy Box, as I have been subscribed for the past 4 boxes and if you know anything about me, you'd know Im honest regardless of if Im given something for free or not.
