This was the second beauty box in the UK that I signed up for prior to leaving KL.
[Glossybox, UK - June 2013)]
I really do love the packaging of this box. The colour scheme of light pink and black is absolutely gorgeous, and it incites one to excitement just looking at it! The box itself is of really good quality and I intend to keep it to store letters in (Yes, I am hinting).

[Don't you love the confetti?!]
Opening the box just bathes you in an air of decadence and naughtiness. I love it!
Let's see what's inside:
[Organic Surge's Super-Intersive Daily Moisturiser for Dry Skin]
Considering that I filled in a profile on my skincare needs, and I clearly stated that I had combination/oily skin, this was a rather strange thing to receive. That said, it is truly perfect for "summer" in London where my skin definitely needs the extra moisture.
I've tested this out and it works better as a night, rather than day, moisturiser for me due to the nature of my skin. It is a rather thick cream though...almost a paste and a little goes a very long way. This is a full-sized product that is really very hefty. As for how good it is, I can't complain. I quite like it. It makes my skin feel supple and hydrated when I wake up so I think I'll be quite happy replacing what I'm currently using at night with this a few times a week.
[Figs & Rouge's Cherry Blossom Lip Balm]
I absolutely adore this! It's a very lightly tinted moisturising lip balm. The only down side is that it is slightly sticky, but it works quite well at keeping your lips prettily coloured and moisturised. I love!
[Nails Inc's Nail Polish in St. James]
Nails Inc. has been all the rage lately and I was quite interested to try this polish out. It's definitely nice enough and I really do love the colour so this fed my nail needs quite completely for the day.
[Paul Mitchell's Curls Leave-In Treatment]
I haven't, and probably won't be using these because I don't style my hair. They are wasted on me.
[Helen E's Waterproof Protective Lip Liner]
This got me extremely excited! I've been looking for a new lip liner and this couldn't have been more perfect. It's very creamy and very pigmented and it really does stay on your lips as well as retain the shade of lipstick you put over it. I really do love this product!
Glossybox retails for £10 + £2.95 for postage and handling. At £12.95 it's a decent price for the products received. However, I'm a little disappointed that they didn't take into account the questionnaire I filled in on my needs and preferences because I believe I did state that I don't use styling products in my hair as well. Nevertheless, the products are all of extremely high quality so the box really is well worth it.
