February Glossybox Overview


    I'm quite happy with this month's Glossybox =) not gonna lie. I can safely say that I'm excited to use ALL products in there (guess filling in that Beauty Profile worked!). Here's a breakdown of these little babies:

     First off there's the Paul Mitchell Smoothing Super Skinny Relaxing Balm. I was SO chuffed to see this because I've been after the Super Skinny serum for over a year now! I know this isn't the same thing, but still getting to try a similar product from the range is so exciting! Unfortunately, the shower at our house is under construction at the moment so I can't try it out yet but if I like it, you'll definitely be hearing about it from me :) 

     Next is the Certified Fair Trade Dr. Bronner Magic Liquid Soap. It's got extra virgin coconut, olive, jojoba and rose hemp oils. It doesn't smell good, but I still can't wait to try this! You guys know how much I'm obsessed with organic paraben and sulfate free beauty products so I'm so excited to give this a go. Plus thanks to Glossybox, I now always have travel sizes! 

     After that there's the DuWop Venom Gloss. This reminds me SO MUCH of middle school when Venom Gloss first came out. I loooove how it stings the lips n makes them so tingly afterwards! It truly plumps up the lids and I absolutely love this sheer, neutral, very wearable shade- Buttercup! Once my Cargo Tokyo gloss sample is done, I'm so gonna chuck this in my work bag!

     The fourth item in my February box is this sample of BM Beauty's pure mineral eyeshadow in Storm Cloud. It's advertised as cruelty free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians. I loved the ashy grey/blue/silver shade when I first saw it, but after swatching it, I wasn't as pleased anymore. It's not very pigmented and actually comes out quite greenish which I'm not sure I like. Still, it's a tiny sample so I'm happy to give it a go and incorporate it into my looks!

     Last but not least is the Como Shambhala Invigorate Body Lotion. I love that it has an expiration date on it which shows that it's a natural product. It's got lavender, geranium, eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils - WOWZA it smells sensational! So fresh yet soothing! I am sooo gonna be using this up fo sho!

     All in all I'm quite over the moon about this Glossybox :D If you guys are subscribed to Glossybox what did u think of the Feb box? 
     Ps. I caved and subscribed to the new She Said Beauty beauty box which comes out next week! I just had a hunch that the first few boxes will be out of this world and I definitely wanted a piece of that cake! Also if you subscribe before tomorrow (27/2) you can get 25% or 30% off!!!! Go for it! Xx
