First ever Glossybox!

If you read my blog regularly, you may know I have been getting the SheSaid Beauty Box, and was considering trying some others. Well, Top Cashback had a great offer for £7.00 back for a single Glossybox to try, so I figured what the heck that's a bargain! I thought I would get next month's box but ended up getting this month's anniversary edition which is great.

These boxes are just so pretty aren't they? I love the ribbon and the printed tissue paper, so cute. I'd seen a few reviews of this box online and was a wee bit disappointed I didn't get any of the fake lashes as I love falsies! So here's what I got:
I got the Glossybox mirror and the balloon which was a nice touch for the anniversary edition. I got two perfume samples from Lolita Lempicka, a couple of Face masks, Osmo hair treatment, Noble Isle shower gel and HD Brows Grow Baby Grow! Quite a nice little stash eh?

I think this is my favourite product, it seems as though this new company is going to be a competitor for Molton Brown, Jo Malone and the likes. It smells absolutely divine, the packaging is so well made, and feels luxurious. I just had a little look on their website and the whole range looks fab. I cannot wait to use this.
Next favourite is the HD Brows Grow Baby Grow, it is a serum meant to boost eyebrow growth for those who have over plucked their brows. Whilst I don't have that problem thicker eyebrows are easier to style so I will be giving this a try and will tell you the results! This stuff is £29.99 so was a great product to get in this box.
I have been wanting to try a hair oil for a little while now, but current finances have forced me to pick what I REALLY want first. Needless to say, I was delighted to see this in my box, I have used a couple of Osmo products before in the past and always been happy with them so this is going to be good hopefully. Looking forward to silky-smooth locks!
Now, I haven't done a post on face masks yet, but I love them and have even been known to pin down Richard and smother the leftovers on him while he pretends to hate it. Then catch him admiring his smooth skin the next day, busted! I'm a bit funny with honey fragrances but after a little research this company seem to have a bit of a following so I have high hopes for this. I might review it seperately with it on, such a good look huh?
Lastly, we got some pretty perfume samples, the packaging is so feminine and I love the swirly writing! It's always good to try before you by, and I like having samples to chuck in my handbag rather than carting about a full size perfume. I have the L'Eau en Blanc on currently, I like it once it has settled on my skin, probably because it has rasperry in it! When it first went on the violet scent reminded me a bit of Parma Violets (they are little purple sweets that smell flowery, for my international readers) and I detest those, but it does smell nice after that dies away.

For my first ever Glossybox I am very impressed! The fact I got one product worth nearly £30 would have been worth it in itself, but I also happen to really like and use all the other type of products also.

Happy Birthday Glossybox! Thanks for keeping me glossy :)
