I feel a bit like I’ve got beauty boxes coming out of my ears at the moment! The latest Glossybox has just arrived and it’s a really good one! With six full size and generous sample sized items covering hair, skincare and makeup, March’s box is looking like one of the best yet…
So what’s inside the box?
- Naobay Moisturising Peeling, 100ml worth £13.71.
- Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara, full size worth £3.30.
- Dove Advanced Hair Youthful Vitality Shampoo & Conditioner, 50ml each worth £1.20 each.
- ncLA Nail Lacquer in I Only Fly Private, full size worth £10.83.
- Sleek Makeup Pout Paint in Port, full size worth £4.99.
Total value = £35.23.
Ok so it’s not the highest value, but on first glance this isn’t a bad little box at all! I’ll start with the Naobay Moisturising Peeling. This is the strangest product name, surely it should say … Mask or Cream or something at the end!? Anyway, this is in fact an ‘organic peeling milk’ which includes particles from the acai tree to remove dulling dead skin cells and brighten the complexion. This sounds exactly what my skin needs right now, since I’ve been ill my skin has just become so lifeless and dull I’ll soon be resembling a corpse, so fingers crossed this will work! (review to come)
Next is the Essence Mascara. I’ve heard of Essence before and understand it’s a budget brand that’s available in Wilko. I’m not based near a store so haven’t had a chance to try out their products before. I have to say the Lash Princess Mascara does look kinda cheap – well it is only £3.30! And the makeup snob in me is telling me it’s not going to be much cop, but I’ve been wearing the mascara for a few hours now and it’s actually not that bad. It’s not as lengthening on my short lashes as I’d like but it’s ok if you’re looking for volume rather than length.
Moving on we have the Dove Advanced Hair Youthful Vitality Shampoo and Conditioner. I haven’t used Dove hair products for years, so I’m welcoming the re-introduction to the brand. These products are specifically aimed at ageing hair (I’m coming up 31, does that count??) They’re supposed to repair brittle hair and replenish lost nutrients to leave hair looking ‘twice as thick’ These are bold words, Dove! I have super fine hair so I’ll be trying these out in the coming weeks – this is another one I’ll have to report back on!
The ncLA Nail Lacquer is up next, and I personally do not find this product visual appealing. The bottle looks very cheap – but it’s in fact $16! I do like the colour of the polish, as you know I’m all about the brights! ncLA is a US based company that sells nail products only, so you’d think that as this is their specialism then the products should be pretty decent, and it actually is. You just need two coats for full opaque coverage, I can’t comment on the longevity yet but so far so good!
And lastly the Sleek Pout Paint. I’m already a big fan of Sleek cosmetics and I’ve previously reviewed their Pout Paint in Pinkini. The pigmentation is fanastic, but I do find the Pout Paints seep into the fine lines at the edges of my lips – you’ll see what I mean if you look at the Pinkini review. I think you’re good to go with this product as long as you use a decent lip liner with it 🙂
Overall this is a really good box, considering it’s only £10 to buy! I’d love to hear your thoughts? xxx
