So I finally received my first beautybox. I totally Glossybox forgot that I ordered it after my blog post in April about the different beauty boxes out there. Which was a good suprise, because it feels like receiving a present…love it <3…
So how does the concept work. You order the box monthly and pay 12,50 euros, you receive 5/6 beautyproducts which are based on your personal profile (style, likes, dislikes, preferences). The normal price of the beautyproducts together are somewhere between 50-100 euros. So this is a real good deal. If you write enough reviews or invite friends you even receive the box for free.
This month the theme was ‘Affordable Favorite’ which the staff of Glossybox put together.
I was absolutely excited about the products in this box, because I am already familiar with 4 of the 6 brands, and also very pleased with other products of these brands.
Zoeva – Forever Eye Crayon
This eye shadow pencil is a beautiful color, it is gray/green with a little golden sparkle in it. Definitely nice for a night out, since I don’t wear any eye shadow myself, I probably will make my best friend really happy with this one.
Garnier – Miracle Skin Perfector
A day cream and foundation in one with a sun protection, what more do you want? I was already familiar with the product, because of the commercials with Yfke Sturm, a Dutch supermodel. Ideal for the summer days, because then you really don’t want to wear a heavy foundation. I am a instant fan, because I already have a Garnier day cream which is also really light like this one. And for hot days like today I would rather not wear foundation, but wear BB cream instead.
John Frieda – Full Repair Perfect Ends Deep Infusion
I am the number one user of John Frieda products, so of course this was my number one favorite. And ideal for me, because it is a repair serum for overstyled hair (read: hair dryer, straightener). The texture is liquid which is good for applying on to the washed and wet hair.
Dr. van der Hoog – Purity cleaning wipes
Which girl doesn’t have enough cleaning wipes? I bring these babies everywhere I go, especially on day or weekend trips and holidays. You can take them on to the plane and clean absolutely everything with them, even stains in your clothes! These cleaning wipes from Dr. van der Hoog are ideal, they are quite firm and smell nice (not to strong). But most of all they don’t leave a pulling sensation on your face afterwards.
NO-AD – Aftersun Lotion
So I like the idea of putting a aftersun lotion in the May box. I am unfamiliar with the brand. I like the texture of the lotion and it feels really soft and fresh on your skin, but I wouldn’t use it. I just don’t like the smell of the product, so I wouldn’t cover my whole body in it.
Max Factor – Masterpiece Max High Volume & Definition Mascara
This one was a new experience for me. I never use Max Faxtor products, but I know the brand. I normally don’t like mascara’s whit a prickly brush, but I have to disagree with myself. This one is phenomenal, it opens up my eyelashes more than my own mascara and it makes them look longer.
I think the box exceeded my expectations. I loved 4 of the 6 products and will for sure start using these products and maybe even buy them in the future.
What do you think about the Glossybox?
