February GlossyBox

Hi lovelies,

So I had my little GlossyBox packaging waiting for me when I got up this morning, and unfortunately I'm not impressed by this box. However that's the risk you take with these type of boxes, they can be hit or miss. I found with this box the items were pretty much trial size with the exception of one.

Anyways onto the products:

Welcome back the original GlossyBox packaging

Now there is a little surprise coming our way, as GlossyBox have 'Expect the Unexpected' on 24th Feb.

Onto the products:

DuWop Venom Gloss

Now this is an exciting product to have as the brand are very big, I got the colour 'Buttercup' which is a gorgeous nude with subtle hints of shimmer. I love the smell of this also, when swatching I wasn't sure I'd like the colour but once swatched I love it. Will be trying this out tomorrow for uni.

Como Shambhala Invigorate Lotion

The boxes seem to be contains lots of lotions at the moment, so I wasn't too bothered about this product. However it's a daily product so it'll be used, I'm not too sure on the smell about this, it will probably be different after using it and I'm sure it'll grow on me.

Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Relaxing Balm

This is probably the most exciting product for me this month, I'm loving hair products at the moment - this is something that I'm sure I'll fall in love with as I love hair treatments for both my own hair and my extensions. Will try out within the next couple of days see if I love it - I've done that with my elasticiser from November's GlossyBox.

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap

I'm not sure about this product as I'm not a massive fan of oils, but this item does have a lot of uses from a soap to shampoo - so that'll be interesting to try out. The soap is a combination of coconut, olive jojoba and oils - so it sounds a nice mix. I'll have to see what happens why I try it out.

BM Beauty Pure Mineral Eyeshadow

Another of my favourites from this box, I wasn't sure about the colour until I swatched it and instantly fell in love. This is a very pigmented colour and this swatch was done just purely with the product from the lid - I was amazed. I got 'Platinum Tiara' which is a gorgeous metallic grey, I can see this being a re-purchase already as both my mother and I are in love with it.

So like I said probably not the best box I've had, but a couple of great products in there. However I am excited for the 24th.

What do you think of this month's box?
