Unboxing

Unboxing #7

Glossybox woohoo! I actually have another unboxing post planned in November, after this one. What is it? Have I subscribed to another surprise box? Well, you’ll see. Anyway, back to Glossybox now. It arrived on the 9th of November, which I though was great, as it was only dispatched on the 7th. Nice and quick. After I was somewhat disappointed with another monthly beautybox that had arrived a couple of days earlier, I almost didn’t dare to get my hopes up anymore – what if I was let down again? I needn’t have worried though. Glossybox absolutely rose to the occasion and restored my faith in monthly presents.

By now, if you’ve read my other unboxing posts, you’ll know what their outer box looks like, so I didn’t take any pictures of that, thinking I’d rather just get right to it.

This month’s box included a Super Indulgent And Luxurious Face Mask, Lush Lashes, Glides On Effortlessly Eye Pencil, Actually Works Pillow Spray, A Nice Blending Brush and as an extra surprise, they’d also guessed my favourite sweets, and included an Oh So Yummy Raffaello. In this box I got four full-sized and only one sample-sized item.

111skin, Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask, RRP £20. The indulgence I felt when I used this mask was just incredible. It felt extremely moisturising when it was on my face and it was actually all speckled with crushed gold. I had it on for the recommended 20 minutes and it did leave my skin so soft and hydrated. I absolutely fell in love with it. If you have £20 to spend on a single use face mask, then I’d absolutely recommend it. Be aware it’s a limited edition mask, so grab ’em whilst you can.

This works, deep sleep pillow spray, RRP £16 for a full-sized item. That’s the only thing I got just a sample of and it’s also what I used up first. Both me and my Mr found that we did actually get a better night’s sleep when using it. The spray is a blend of lavender, vertivert and chamomile, and you spray it on your pillow before sleep. Loved it! (thisworks.com)

De Bruyere Beaute, Jumbo Eye Pencil in Bubble 07, RRP €15.  It’s a khaki-grey eye pencil that glides on like a dream. It did settle in my eyelid crease a little bit after a while, but so do all the other eye products, so I think it may just be my eyes being weird. It was highly pigmented like it promised on paper and again – I loved it and would recommend it. (debruyerebeaute.com/gb)

Kiss, Looks So Natural Lashes, RRP £4.95. I can’t believe how affordable these magnificent beauties are. Absolutely amazing. They were relatively ok to apply and I always struggle with applying lashes. The result was absolutely worth it though. I’m not going to lie and say they looked natural as they didn’t. As far as false lashes go though, they didn’t make me look like a clown, but enhanced what I already have. Gorgeous! Will definitely be purchasing these again. (superdrug.com)

Last but not least, Ruby Professional, Large Tapered Blending Brush, RRP €8. I do love getting more brushes and other makeup tools in these boxes every now and then, especially when they’re surprisingly good quality. It’s cruelty free and has nice, soft bristles, making it quite easy to work with. It’ll definitely have a place in my makeup brushes pot, should I finally find or make such a pot. My brushes are a bit of a mess at the moment. Really need to sort them out. I’m getting off topic here. Great brush!  (shopruby.ie)

As for the Raffaello, I ate it. Straight away. Wish there had been more. Oh well, can’t have it all.

Thank you Glossybox for this amazing gift you put together for me and your other subscribers!
