This month's limited edition GlossyBox is rather special, consisting of outshining and fabulous products making it big in beauty. The box itself has been designed by Maggie Li ,an up-coming illustrator from London, and it's just adorable.
LADY GAGA Fame Fragrance
Last week my boyfriend bought me this very fragrance so I didn't have a sense of surprise when I saw the sample in my box. I have reviewed Fame in this post if you wish to have a read. This sample is handy to keep in my handbag although with it being so small, I have managed to use it up in a week!
RODIAL Glamoxy Snake Serum and 5 Minute Facial
I'm rather intrigued with the idea of 'snake serum' based products which seems to be increasingly popular since the whole 'bee venum' craze. The 5 minute facial is a clay mask but with a gritty texture...one sachet wasn't enough to cover my whole face so I had to make use of both samples. Once applied, my skin felt a sense of rejuvenation and when rinsing off the product the grit acted as an exfoliant leaving my skin pleasantly soft. The serum is delicate on the face and has a fresh scent to it, I have made use of both sachets although I wouldn't consider investing into the full size product.
BALANCE ME Wonder Eye Cream
I may be over reacting but I've come to realise I can't ignore the fact that I'm not getting any younger (sad face) and I'm growing ever so paranoid that I will suddenly wake to a map of fine lines all over my face. This eye cream promises to reduce fine lines and add radiance around the eyes. I don't suffer from dark circles myself so I haven't really noticed a dramatic change of brightness around my eyes.
VICHY Idealia Day Care Cream
This is a really subtle, gentle face cream which I have been using every morning before applying my make up. I have actually used up all my regular face creams so I received this one just in time and it's also quite a generously sized sample. It isn't heavy on the skin and has a lovely floral/candy like fragrance and is definitely my favourite product of this month's box.
MAGHRABIAN Hair Oil
The final product is a hair oil by Maghrabian, I was quite gutted to not have received the L'Oreal Mythic oil after hearing so much positive feedback and unfortunately this is a very small sample so I will probably use it up rather quickly. The consistency of the oil is a little heavier than I would have expected and the fragrance isn't too appealing. I haven't noticed any results from this oil as I can't really get much use out of such a small amount.
