What's in my Glossy Box this March?

I haven't reviewed a Glossy Box in a while mainly because I keep forgetting but I was so impressed with this March box when it arrived this morning I just had to tell you all about it. Glossy Boxes are sent to you every month filled with beauty treats to try and test, they usually include luxury sample sizes and often full size products of some of the best brands around. But I bet you already knew all that...

First up is a Tresemme Hairspray (Pink No.4) and I was thrilled to bits when I saw this. It's as if the people at GB had read my mind. I ran out of my favourite Tresemme Hairspray (this one) a few days ago and I've been meaning to pick one up but just haven't got around to it. Now I don't have to make the trip! It really is a great hairspray and it's No.4 'Salon Finish' over any others every time.

A lovely little Nails Inc polish in the shade Bruton Street. I think this dusky pink mauve will suit many people and I'm excited to try it out. Nail Inc are a brand that are so pricey - so it's nice to try out a mini nail polish first before leaping in and buying anything full size.

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush in a classic bright red. Another winner. I never buy myself red lipsticks but I'm always keen to try them. I like the shade, I'm wearing it in each photo - what do you think? This one felt so moisturising on my lips and was super easy to apply (no brushes just straight from the stick) I'll have to keep my fingers crossed it's one that lasts all day without smudging and get back to you.

And finally a wonder product that is Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream. If you are yet to try this then I'm certain you will have heard about it. I've been meaning to try it out for years but now this sample tube has landed in my lap I actually can! I tested a little bit on the back of my hand and on my lips and so far I'm impressed. It's more of a balm than a cream however so I don't think I'll be using this on my face. It can be used on any dry patches, nail cuticles, eyebrows, hands and feet and lips.

Did you delve into a Glossy Box this month? I love getting brilliant boxes like this one, full of useful items I may not have purchased myself but really wanted to. I also thought I'd have a go at photographing this one a little differently to usual and I felt like such a beauty YouTuber!
As always I'm keen to hear your thoughts...

  7. This box was full of such goodies! I'm always afraid of subscribing to one myself because I don't use all my products and I may drown in too many new ones... but I might change my mind just for the sake of getting new things! ;)

  8. I love your hair!
