Eeeeeek! My first ever Glossybox arrived in the post today! I got a subscription from my Grandma for Christmas and I am so excited that I’m going to keep getting surprises like this all year!
So Glossybox and I didn’t get off to a good start because my first box was supposed to come in December but got lost in translation somewhere and I never got it 😦 … Probably victim to the Christmas post but still disappointing as I was so excited! They gave me a refund for the box and I had to wait until now to open my first box of joy!
First impressions – LOVE the packaging, the box is much sturdier than I expected and the little bow and sticker are adorable. I got two full sized products and three samples this month and it all seemed to revolve around skin care…
– 2x 3ml Yu-Be Moisturising Skin Cream
– 50ml Vaseline Essential Moisture lotion
– 50ml Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash
– Anitomicals ‘Puffy the Eye Bag Slayer’ Wakeup Under Eye Patches (one pack contains two sachets)
– The Vintage Cosmetic Company floral slanted tweezers
The Yu-Be Japanese cream in the tiny testers don’t give you a huge amount of product and smell kind of like Tiger Balm. I have really really dry skin on my left hand (no idea why it’s just the left?!) so I have put some on and it absorbs really well and the smell fades very quickly. I think I will need to use it for a few days before I see if it is effective but the package says I can also use it on my face and lips … not sure I would use it for that simply because of the smell.
Vaseline – a timeless favourite. I’ve actually used this moisturiser before and really like it. Subtle scent, non-greasy and easily absorbed and fine on my dry and sensitive skin. Basically an all-round winner.
The tweezers are so kitsch and cute – I really like the floral pattern (hands off boyfriend!) and they are good quality and get the job done! I’d been eyeing up some tweezers from this company for a while so am super happy I got these in my box this month!
Will try the eye patches soon, when I am looking particularly haggard! Hopefully they are good – I’ve never used a product like this before so I am intrigued.
Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts/reviews?
