super sweet gb.


A pretty day full of pinks! I received the new GlossyBox the other day, and have been trying out the new products. Inside the Valentine's edition you receive: 1. Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner, 2. Clarins Extra Firming Night Cream, 3. Clarins Extra Firming Day Cream, 4. Fab Gentle Body Wash, and 5. Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer - Dewy Finish.

Here's what I thought of them...

1. The long handle of this eyeliner makes it really easy to use, and the colour is nice and bright. I received Emerald Green, which really makes your eyes pop. The only downside to this is that the handle is so long that it doesn't fit in my make up bag, so I can't take it anywhere!

2. I have a skincare routine in the evenings that is so engrained in my mind that I actually keep forgetting to use this. It does make my skin feel really soft when I remember though!

3. I've been using this just before putting my make up on, and I love the smell. I've only been using a tiny bit, and the texture is great. A little goes a long way.

4. I'm tempted to use this on my face because it's irritant-free and I have sensitive skin. So far I've only been using it on my hands and it's lovely! I have very dry skin on my hands, and soap usually dries it out further. This doesn't!

5. This tiny sample probably won't last long, but the combination of this and the Clarins Day Cream makes my skin feel SO SOFT, even after I've put make up on. I was a little worried when I put some on my hand, as the product is quite dark. However, it's very thin and once spread out on your skin it doesn't look dark at all.





Such a good GlossyBox this month! I've loved all the products!

You'd also be doing me a super big favour if you could take 2 seconds of your time and go here and "like" the photos! Thank you :)

  3. I got a Welda cleanser & toner instead of the Clarins which looks a little strange and I'm a bit scared to use it but I shall give it a go! Also forgot about my sweety do I shall go get it now hehe xxx

  4. This is the one I recieved. I did kinda have my heart on the nail varnish i'd seen in other boxes but never mind! Getting a surprise is what Glossybox is all about I suppose!

  6. Wow that eyeliner is massive! Well at least the box is anyway. I can see what you mean about it not fitting in your bag!
