GlossyBox November

GlossyBox November

Monu Moisturiser
+FC5 Hand Cream
Dead Sea Spa Magik Bath Salts
Illamasqua Perfume Sample - Freak
Nail Rock Wraps

Ok so this month's be entirely honest I wasn't overwhelmed by any of the products in the way I have been in the past. But it was still a nice collection of samples and I was looking forward to trying everything out.  I've found some brilliant products through GlossyBox and I just love receiving a beautiful surprise package through the post!

The Dead Sea Spa Magik Bath Salts were a great product to include! Who doesn't love to indulge in a hot bath, and having something new like this gets me even more excited to relax after a long day at Uni. I'm yet to try these but I'm sure I'll like them, I love anything bath-related. 

The Monu Moisturiser I've found a little tacky on my skin, it doesn't smooth on easily and I don't like the smell. I'm pretty picky about my skincare though, I have sensitive skin and I don't always trust new skin products that don't say 'for sensitive skin' all over them!

I like the smell of the perfume from Illamasqua. But I don't love it. They are a brand I'm always willing to try out, I wouldn't buy their full priced items so its lovely to receive a bit of luxury like this in the box.

Nail Rock Wraps appearing for their 2nd time in the GlossyBox, but I received a nicer design this time, I'm definitely going to give them a go. This black and white stripy design is something that's super difficult to paint on.

Finally, the +FC5 hand cream. It has a very organic smell and leaves my hands feeling fresh and soft without being sticky or greasy. I need a hand cream that sinks right into the skin but actually makes a difference, and this does. I don't think I'd buy the full size though, hand cream is not something I'm crazy about.

What I found quite exciting is that GlossyBox are now selling boxes for men! It's 4 boxes a year which include 7 sample products. This sounds like a fantastic idea for boyfriends, brothers or even dad's who are into grooming. I don't think every man would admit it but secretly they love a bit of pampering and may feel a bit uncomfortable about shopping for lots of products - this way, the box is delivered to their home and they can test out beauty stuff in secret! The only draw back is that it is £15 plus postage for every box. I think the Glossy team may consider lowering the price if lots and lots of men signed up. My suspicions tell me the higher price might just be to see how it goes.

What are you're opinions of this month's box? I'm always curious to find out and see what other people got!
