Glossy Box April - 'Earth' edition!
CAUDALIE Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum - I have to be honest, when I went to use this I had no idea what I was supposed to do with it. I gathered it a moisturising serum of some kind, but I didn't know whether to put it on my face or my body or my hands... This product is lacking a bit of direction! I the end I took a gamble and used it on my face before I applied make-up. Although glossy box banged on about this being for all skin types and how amazing it was, I have combination skin and to be perfectly honest it made my face feel very oily and I didn't like it at all. Maybe I was using it wrong?
INKA COSMETICS Certified Organic Eyeliner - This eyeliner applies really softly and it seems really creamy, this might have something to do with the all organic ingredients, I like! I got mine in brown and being a black liner wearer I'm not sure when I'm going to wear this. I need to be a bit more creative! It's a nice thing to have in the make up kit for those days where you dare to be different.
KAI Perfume Oil - A really fresh smelling perfume, a bit different to have a perfume in oil form, may take some getting used to. A full sized bottle is £41... not sure if I'll be breaking the bank any time soon.
FIGS & ROUGE Lip Balm - I like to see a good lip balm in a glossy box, this one is in a cute little tin ready to pop in the hand bag. Mine is rose scented which I'm not a huge fan of, but it's lovely and moisturising and really good for on-the-go. I don't think it will be replacing my burt's bee's!
This is actually going to be my last Glossy Box review for now, as after a careful think, I have decided to unsubscribe. The main reason being I just can't justify the £12.50 every month for a few products which I might like, seeing as I'm not earning too much at the moment. I'd really like to open my box and see something I absolutely love or something I've really wanted to try, but it's never happened.
Also this month has been a bit of a rocky time for Glossy Box, there was a big issue with the fact that they took a payment for the box at the beginning of the month, but it didn't get delivered until the end, which upset a lot of customers. Another issue I have is that while they're getting it so wrong for their paying customers, they seem to be treating their 'ambassadors' pretty well, with freebies and parties all the time... something doesn't seem right here! So bye bye Glossy Box... for now!
What do you guys think about Glossy Box?
