Who needs a special occasion to treat yourself, or someone else, to a beauty subscription box? Luckily for me a friend of mine bought this one for me as a gift.
How gorgeous is the packaging on the February 2017 Glossybox? I usually keep any pretty boxes like this as storage boxes for beauty or stationery items, so it’ll definitely be used for that!
As I’m sure you’ve seen by now the February 2017 Glossybox is Valentine’s themed, but honestly you don’t need February 14th to tell someone you love them.
So let’s see what came inside this months box.
I can’t resist a good face mask, so imagine my delight when I found La Theorie Des Volcans Noir Eternae Purifying Youth Potion inside the box, which is a mineral rich mask with anti ageing ingredients. When the mask is first applied to your skin it goes on a thick pink paste, then turns grey as it sets to work on any impurities, sounds interesting and I can’t wait to give it a go! It’s paraben and silicone free and 90% natural.
Oh wow, a full size Ciate Paint Pot in Iced Frappe! You can’t beat a good nude nail colour for everyday use, this one is a warm nude with coffee undertones, and will suit almost anyone. I’ve had Paint Pot nail colours before and they are fantastic, they are super easy to apply and last for ages.
I think the MeMeMe Beat The Blues in Oyster Gold is absolutely gorgeous. It’s a warm gold shade of highlighter designed to boost the radiance of a winter complexion. It’s quiet a thick consistency, I think I was a bit heavy handed when I first tried it, so you do only need to dot it across your cheek bones, or mix a small amount in with your foundation for a beautiful all over illuminator.
It was so lovely to find a fragrance in this months box. A 30ml bottle of Jeanne Arthes is a generous size compared to some samples in some subscription boxes. The fragrance smells so pretty, I adore the scent of roses and this is one will be perfect for every day use as it’s quite subtle. They describe it as a classic scent combined with dreamy, elegant and crisp notes.
Last of all there is a sample sachet of Garnier Ultimate Blends Honey Treasures Strength Restore Balm, aimed to hydrate and nourish dry hair. I won’t be using this, so I am giving this one away.
We’re also given a sneaky peek into next month’s box where Glossybox are including a Sleek palete with each box where you can choose which of the four options you’d like to recieve. How fab is that?
Overall, not bad at all this month considering the Paint Pot polish is worth £9 on it’s own and I’ll definitely be using 4 out of the 5 products from the February’s box.
I am on the hunt for a new one to try so let me know if you have any suggestions.
