I've seen a lot of comments about beauty box blog posts recently, and how they're a waste of time as everyone posts the same things. To be honest, I agree to some degree - I'll usually only read one or two blog posts about any one box, by people who's opinions I trust. I rarely venture away from my regular beauty brands, so I find boxes like this a fun way to discover new things. 

All the samples in this month's GlossyBox were quite small, but overall pretty good. Here's what I thought...

 This brush is pretty small, so good for slipping in your make up bag. I've used it every day since I got it. It's soft, but firm (if that makes sense?!) and a perfectly good brush. There's not much more I can say about it!

 These perfumes were all a bit heavy for me. I'm very particular about my scents - I've mentioned before that I prefer light, fruity fragrances. None of these suit me, but the packaging, colours etc are very pleasing to my eye!

 This was too dark for my skin really, and I found that because it's a loose powder, I always ended up with far too much on my brush. I ended up looking like I'd been rolling around in mud. Not a great look! I'm sure it'd look lovely on someone more tanned than me!

 I love this mascara and wish it was a full size! This tiny little tube came with a lovely chunky brush, which seperates your lashes beautifully. I needed a couple of coats, but I was left with full, flirty lashes. Perfect! I'm not sure I'd spend £16.90 to get the full size version though.

I've used Vichy products before, and think they're great. They give really good coverage, but I can find that with cream stick foundations, my skin can get quite greasy and shiny. I used this while I had a bit of a cold, so I had blotchy skin and a red nose, but this hid that beautifully! My skin was also quite dry though, and this foundation did highlight that.

What did you think of this month's GlossyBox?


  1. I also love this mascara. The Dermablend is amazing, I been wanting it forever. x

  2. I've seen quite a few reviews on Glossy and I'm about ready to buy one haha their stuff looks really great!

  3. Ooh my box was almost completely different from yours! I feel the same about Glossybox posts, once you've read one or two, you've nearly seen them all. I always feel that reading too much about them clouds your own judgement about a box? Having said that, I'm half underwhelmed with my box but love my HD Brows tweezers and Caudalie perfume (: not a fan of the brush; I keep getting stray brush hairs on ma face! xxxx

  4. Ooh the vichy cover sticks sounds great! x

  5. I've always wanted to try Agent Provacateur (sp?) perfume. Does it smell as good as it looks???

  6. I've never bothered susbscribing to Glossy Box, but my mum does (which I find quite cute). She gave me the bits I didn't want and I was really impressed with the brush as I needed a new one anyway. I think the mascara is great too x
