Bonjour From Glossybox

Hey guys,

I've made no secret of my love of beauty boxes and recently how some have been a bit blah. The only reason I still subscribe to Glossybox is because I want my free box. I know, I know it's counterproductive to buy 3, just to get 1 free but hey it makes sense in my head! Haha.

However I actually liked this months Glossybox. With a chic Parisian theme and fabulous box design I was, dare I say it, impressed.

Inside the box was a cool bag, designed by the talented Jamie Lee Reardin, which held this months goodies. All French based to tie in with the theme. Obviously ;)

So what European surprises did I get?!

First off I love the bag that's included. It's cute, quirky and perfect to throw your handbag essentials in and off you pop for a day of shopping and coffee. Oooh with cakes! Ok, ok carrot sticks *curse you fat arse* ;p

Lollipops Lip Balm Délicieuse seems ok but I'm quite picky with lip balms and this one was a bit too thick for me or maybe it was the texture or the taste (I don't generally eat my lip balm but I tend to bite my lip a lot sooo ... you get the point I'm making right?) anyway I'm not sold on this one. Cute tube though :)

Yves Rocher Comme Une Evidence Perfume comes in a really cute bottle, what can I say I like small things ;) haha. Anyway I like this brand and whilst it was a nice scent, it was a bit too strong for me. However my mother has happily taken it out of my hands.

Teoxane Cosmeceuticals Perfect Skin Refiner Night Cream this is a pricy product! Full size will set you back £70! With ingredients like hyaluronic acids to plump the skin and hydrate as well as glycolic acid to add skin resurfacing, you know this is going to be good. I'm excited to try this!

Noxidoxi Enhancing Serum Base I was excited to see this included. I'm really getting into serums lately so to try a new product and brand is perfect. Yellow in colour with no discernible scent, this soaked into my skin well (I've used this once so far) and my moisturiser went on lovely after. Another product full of goodness to hydrate and protect the skin. We shall see how I get on with this :)

Overall I thought it was a pretty good box this month. Whilst I'm only testing out two of the products myself, the cost and quality of the brands more than makes the box.

I'm still on the fence about keeping with Glossybox after my 'free' box but in this instance I can say that the French theme is a winner! :D

What did you think? Fancy trying Glossybox? You can check them out here only £10 plus p&p and you can cancel your subscription at any time.

Much Love,
