Glossy Box: February’s Edition

The Fashion Week Edition 

I am assuming that GB wanted to do a Fashion Week box which is why we had the Valentines box in January. Sort of makes sense now. I accidently ended up with two boxes as I forgot to cancel one sub! So as they are different I’ll show you both and will try and keep it short.

DuWop – Venom Gloss in Buttercup (5ml) £16 for 10.4ml
Yummy smell! It feels slightly tacky on the lips at first with a light tingly sensation then it becomes more ‘stingy’ Not painful but a very obvious feeling and something you’d probably get used too. Very sheer colour on the lips and a touch plumper. Not very noticeable though.
Dr Bronner – Magic Liquid Soap (Full size 59m)  £1.99
I have this in the cupboard but unscented, this is a light citrus smell. Not sure what it’s been used it for but there is only a tiny bit left so this will replace it.  I think this is an all purpose soap but I need to look into it a bit more. 
Paul Mitchell – Super Skinny Relaxing Balm (25ml) £13.90 for 200ml and Quick Slip (25ml) £11.99 for 150ml
Paul Mitchell reminds me of my hairdressing days! These products have a lovely fresh smell. The balm is to smooth and control so I am guessing it is similar to oils like Moroccan?! The quick slip is conditioning style cream. Looking forward to trying these out!
BM Beauty – Mineral Eyeshadow (1g each) £7 for 2g
I received Wolf Howl (blue) and Storm Cloud (grey/green). I am not a huge fan of loose products as they are a bit messy, love the colours so will try these. They are quite a big size as they are and I don’t think you’d need 2g! 
Como Shambhala – Body Lotion and Body Wash (50ml each) £20 for 300ml
Both these have Eucalyptus, Geranium, Lavender and Peppermint. I am not overly keen on the smell, too much for me and I am a bit over body washes! Still I think these would make a lovely gift so I will keep them for that.
False nails are not something I need or would use. I wouldn’t mind having this product in my box if it wasn’t such a hideous design! Good god, neon, mutli coloured strips with hearts! If it was a decent usable colour/design I could at least give them to someone.
So between the two boxes there are a few products I will be trying, not overly exciting but new products all the same, except those truly awful false nails!
Glossy Box has changed the colour of the description cards and put back the logo inside of the box…bit of a change going on? And hmm intriguing… 

What was in your box?

      Just looked at your box, I am not overly keen on Lavender either. Not the best box and if I had only received the one with the nails I wouldn't have been too happy!

    is there anything I can swap with you?

    I was very disappointed with my box 🙁 May be time for me to un-sub, but then I am so intrigued by the mystery box that I don't wanna un-sub!
    I had the moisturiser (which I received in the first ever GB), a Paul Mitchell product for curly hair, magic soap, eyeshadow and a lip gloss.

      Just read your post, can't believe they put in a repeat product. They must have had some left over?! Ridiculous anyway! I tried the gloss again and really don't like it, the tingling sensation stays for too long and is uncomfortable! Only a few days till the 'mystery' so wait until then to decide xx
