as you can see, i subscribed to glossybox and received their february box in the mail a few days ago. there seem to be posts about these boxes and similar ones all over the internet lately and it really is a great idea - who doesn't love getting mail and trying out unnecessary (but fun) beauty products for $14.95 a month? anyway i'm sure everyone knows the concept, if you haven't already subscribed to one yourself. this month i was sent:
- palmer's skin therapy oil with rosehip fragrance (60ml)
- carmex moisture plus lip balm
- face of australia mineral lip shine in beach house
- a little package of love hearts lollies
- star & rose miniature emergency nail files (12 pack)
- proactiv deep cleansing wash (60ml)
i'm relatively happy with my first box. the lip shine (halfway between a lip tint and lipstick) was in a sandy gold colour which isn't my thing at all so i've passed it on to my mum, and the lip balm and skin therapy oil aren't super exciting, but they're a decent size and i'm pretty pleased with the proactive cleanser and i love the cute little nail files.
i also managed to get my hands on a bottle of gucci's flora and a gorgeous tokyo milk hand cream. they have such beautiful packaging, it completely sells you on a luxury product like this - there are so many options out there that the way a brand presents itself is a huge part of what makes me want to try it (one of the main reasons why i love soap & glory and benefit). it also just really adds to the pleasure that you get from using it, it makes you feel special and that's exactly what a luxury product should do. the hand cream is kabuki scent which is made up of lychee, sugared grapefruit, sweet jasmine and warm vanilla.
