Unboxing #13

What’s this? It’s only half way through a month and I’m already posting an unboxing/review of a beauty box from this month? The world must be ending or going mad or maybe it’s just me. Crazy stuff. Anyway, here I am with my Valentine’s Day themed Glossybox. And boy am I LOVING it. Rather accurate feeling, considering the design of their gorgeous box this month.

Drum roll, please – … anticipation grows … excitement is definitely there … and then – in my beautiful February Glossybox I got: My New Favourite Perfume, A Beautiful Illuminator, A Really Nice Face Scrub, A Hair Mask I’m Going To Try Very Soon and A Nailpolish.


Jeanne Arthes L’Eau de Rose RRP £20. Oh. My. Goodness. This is seriously my new favourite perfume. It’s rose combined with ‘dreamy, elegant and crisp notes’. It’s just absolutely perfect for the way I feel at the moment, which is all spring/summery and so excited about my wedding in July. I will most likely be buying another bottle once I run out of this one and I’d like to thank Glossybox oh so much for including a perfume in this box. Amazing. Love it.


La Theorie Des Volcans Noir Eternae Youth Potion Face Scrub RRP £26. I really like this mask/scrub. ‘Using mineral-rich volcanic paste, this mask cleanses and purifies.’ I admit I’ve only used it once, but I can confirm that’s what it does. I definitely felt cleansed and purified afterwards without any unwanted breakouts or skin issues. Very face friendly. It’s paraben and silicone-free and 90% natural.


Garnier Ultimate Blends Honey Treasures Strength Restorer Balm RRP £4.49 (for full size). This is the only sample-sized item in my box this month. I haven’t tried it yet, but I love everything else from the Garnier Ultimate Blends series so I can’t see myself not loving this hair mask. Again it’s paraben free (this seems to be VERY important nowadays and I’m not going to argue with it) and the hydrating properties of honey should leave your hair nourished and glossy. As I have really thick and wild hair (pretty sure it’s got a life of its own most of the time, I’m just along for the ride), I love products that help me gloss it up a little and make it more manageable. I have a feeling that’s exactly what this thing is going to do for me.


Ciate London Paint Pot in Iced Frappe RRP £9. As far as nail polishes go, I really like Ciate products. However, as I usually do my nails with gel polish, I feel like this little beauty is a bit wasted on me. I promise to do my absolute best to use it as much as I can, but I have a box full of ones already waiting to be used. Other than that it’s a beautiful nude colour which is perfect for me, as darker tones don’t usually suit me too well and it’s easier to apply as well as the mistakes won’t be quite so noticeable (I hope).


MeMeMe Beat the Blues in Oyster Gold RRP £7.25. A beautiful little ‘iridescent skin illuminator’. I’ve tried it as a highlighter and it left me with a nice subtle golden glow along my cheek bones. I haven’t tried to mix it with my foundation yet for ‘all over radiance’ that it promises, but it sounds great so I’ll probably give it a go sometime soon. I love the packaging, although the fact that it’s got a nail polish type of brush confused my little head a bit and I had to re-read the description of it to make sure I knew what it was for. That’s just me being a bit slow though.

Overall I have to say that I think this is one of my most favourite boxes so far. A large portion of the credit for that must go to the perfume that I got as it’s just sooooooooooo nice and I love it so much. I’d love to get more perfumes to try out actually. Although I understand that scents are quite individual and it’s impossible to cater to everyone’s taste. Still, a girl can hope.
