Glossybox March 2014

Today I received my March Glossybox. Over recent months Glossybox has been going down in people's estimations, however for me last month they redeemed themselves with a great valentines box!
The theme of this months box is 'Beauty Blossom'. I have to say that as a nail addict there is always a hint of disappointment for me when there's no polish included and this months box seems to be one of those.

Initial thoughts are good, there are six things in the box, ok two are perfume samples but it still counts as items. The perfume samples are the two new Juicy Couture Malibu Collection. The samples are in handy little spray tubes and are 1.5ml each. The full size perfumes are £47 for 75ml. I have to say I quite like all of the Juicy Couture perfumes so I am happy with these samples.

The only brand I haven't heard of in this months box is Mitchell and Peach. From this brand is a body cream with English honey, organic cocoa, vitamin B5 and shea butter. Full size is £36 for 180ml and I have received a 40ml tube. The smell is quite strong and floral so not something I would choose myself but I will give it a whirl :-)

One product I am excited to try out is the Sleek MakeUP Pout Polish. I have heard a lot of good things about this brand but haven't had the opportunity to try any of their things until now. This is a full size item which costs £4.49 for 10g. It is a tinted lip balm which has SPF15, almond oil, shea butter and vitamin E. I am a big lover of vitamin E products so that made this even better for me. The colour of the balm is a darkish beige which is great for my pale skin. It also smells really nice and doesn't feel too sticky on my lips.

Next up is Bellapierre Cosmetics Ltd Shimmer Powder. This is a mineral make up which is good for my sensitive skin and is a silvery colour so again a good colour for me. This is another full size product and is £12.99 for 2.35g so this pretty much pays for the box. They also claim that this powder can be mixed with blusher, nail polish and lip gloss to create your own custom make up.

I did a small swatch on my hand to show how sparkly it is.

The last item in my box was a Dove Hair Therapy Intensive Repair 60 Second Treatment Shot. This is my least favourite thing in the box but I will still try it out. It is a full size product £1.49 for 15ml so wouldn't break the bank.

As always you get your Glossy magazine. I usually have a quick flick through but I have to admit I never read it properly. 
So in conclusion I am pleased with this months box. I feel that they have actually looked at my beauty profile for a change and the products have been chosen to suit me better than ones I have received in past boxes.

For a closer look at the products I will be doing a review on my youtube channel

Thanks for reading.
