I had been subscribed to GlossyBox for over a year before i got annoyed with the crap I was getting. I never thought I would subscribe again until i saw the advent calendar. I was sucked in and well, the rest is history!
I wanted to do a September box review but wanted to use everything before giving an honest review. Better late than never!
1. Big Bang Beauty Eyebrow Cream
I’ve worn this a few times now and genuinely love it. It’s a creamy texture but it doesn’t budge! The colour is a little too light for me but I used a powder on top and it worked out really well. Even the little applicator is good. I’ve never heard of this brand before but it’s something I would definitely repurchase.
2. Beauty Pro Cleansing Mask
I was pretty happy to get this. I love masks but always feel a little nervous. It was really simple and easy to use. I could feel it working straight away. I did remove it earlier than the recommended 10 minutes but I could tell the difference straight away.
3. Karl Lagerfeld and Model Co Lip Liner
Another product I was really happy about when I first saw it. This is a rich creamy lip liner in a nude ish shade. At least that’s what I thought the colour was. On me, it is more of a muted pink. It’s still a very good lip liner but I’m not sure how often I would wear it. I love the packaging and the feel of the pencil though.
4. Grow Gorgeous Scalp Detox
I really don’t like hair treatments and this was one of the main reasons why I stopped subscribing in the first place. Having said that, this product did catch my eye, even though I still haven’t found the time to use it. It’s a scalp detox which requires you to spend longer than 10 minutes in the shower. Anyone with child knows that is not a possibility, so sadly this product might stay in a box until I am lucky enough to have a pamper day.
5. Daily Concepts Facial Scrubber
I can’t really work out what this is, in all honesty. Obviously it’s a scrubber but it has a lot of instructions and again I was a bit nervous to use it. Looking at the picture now, I can see that it can be used to remove make up, so I will be trying that soon! It it’s a cute size though and I am sure I will make use of it.
6. Wet Ones Be Fresh
Initially you would think this is quite a useless product to receive but if you think about it, anyone with a child would be more than happy to get wet wipes. They are actually very useful and I’ve already used a few! I do love that they don’t dry out, even though I have opened the packet.
Surprisingly I was quite happy with the box this month! Considering I only purchased it because I wanted the advent calendar, it contained quite a few useful products.
