A Very Exciting Beauty Box

I have to say, last month's Glossybox is fantastic! I can only apologise for my delay in writing about it, but it does still seem to be available to order here. For me Glossybox can be really hit and miss. I'm very grateful to the team for sending out my blogger box every month but I only decide to blog about it if I'm impressed with the contents. I try to snap a photo for Instagram so you guys can always see what's inside but I'll only mention the beauty box on This Fashion is Mine when I feel I've got something to say...

September's box was named 'The Style Edition' and included 5 products, all of which were full sized. Top marks to Glossybox for that one. My favourites include the Maria Nila Luminous Colour hair masque which came in a huge bright pink tub and smells sugary like sweets. I really was in need of a hair treatment masque when my Glossybox arrived so I was happy to see this quality product sitting in the box. I've used this treatment a couple of times and my hair has been left shiny, soft and nourished. I haven't noticed any difference in the colour or vibrancy of my hair but maybe that takes a few goes.

I was also thrilled to see a pack of Invisibobbles! Three spiral design plastic hair ties in white that are supposed to prevent your ponytail or bun from making kinks in your hair. I've been wanting to try these out for ages, but feeling like they might have just been a gimmick expecting too much. I couldn't have been more wrong. These bobbles are so comfortable to wear in your hair. They don't pull or snag, they sit perfectly still and hold a ponytail in place all day (or all night). What's even better is they really don't leave any kinks or marks in your hair. I have to tie my hair up at night and so I gave the Invisibobble a run for its money by keeping straightened hair in a ponytail all day and all night. The next morning, no kinks! I was free to leave the house without having to turn the straighteners on to fix any lumps or bumps. The only downside is they are a bit tricky to get out of your hair. I think I've cracked it now, it takes a bit of patience and an actual unwinding of the band, rather than just pulling it straight out of place.

This Nails Inc polish in the colour 'Battersea Park' is gorgeous. I would have been happy with either of the shades that came with September's box, I'm glad to see a well known quality brand inside a Glossybox. This polish goes on so smoothly, only needing one coat. I first applied it over a clear base coat and found it chipped within a day, which was really disappointing. But I'm giving it another go just on its own because I like the colour so much and some polishes just don't work well with base or top coats.

Also included was a Bellapierre eyeshadow which I was less excited about as I prefer pressed shadows to loose ones and a Marsk makeup brush which I will perhaps use for eye products or concealer. Did you receive this box? Let me know your thoughts on the September Glossybox...



  1. I love the idea of these boxes but always worry they'd be filled with stuff I wouldn't use. This one look good though, great colour of polish

  2. Love the look of the masque, the packaging of all of these items looks so good too. I really want to sign up to a month subscription box but have no idea which one to go for!

  3. Never signed up to a beauty box just because I wonder if it would be worth it every month. This one looks good though, and thats when I start to think maybe I should sign up to it!!

  5. I'm also using Bellapierre eyeshadows. I love the because they are made of 100% pure mica powder which is not harmful to the skin and provides long lasting and vibrant color. After all, Bellapierre is highly referred by many make-up artists. Anyways, great post Gwen :)
