Valentines Glossybox and Glossybox for Men!

Monday, 13 February 2012

I was sent this month's special Valentines Glossybox last week, so thought I would pop a little review up of it, along with the men's Glossybox I received a bit ago. Think of it as a kind of Valentines 'His and Hers' Glossybox review if you like! 

I was really impressed once again by Glossybox this month. I love that with special occasions come special boxes, and this BRIGHT pink box was right up my street! I also loved the little Glossybox sweet as a cute finishing touch. The products in this month's box were a really good selection, with some really reputable brands in there. I love that Clarins made an appearance, it's a brand I've always wanted to try although I'm a little disappointed that they're anti-wrinkle products, but of course they have to cater for a lot of different people, so I've given those to my mum and I think she's really impressed with them. Considering full size they cost over £40 you can't really complain! It was nice to see the new re-branded Eyeko in there as well, their 'Skinny Eyeliner' is very fancy with a really long silver handle (that I didn't really see the point of, but apparently it's for when you sharpen it down), although I'm slightly gutted I got emerald green, I would have preferred black or the pale pink I know a few people got. I haven't tried the Murad primer yet but I'm looking forward to using it, Murad is a brand I've heard great things about so I'm hoping it'll be good! Also love the body moisturiser, I have really dry skin at the minute so it's just what I needed!

Overall I'm really impressed with this month's Glossybox, and think the Valentines theme with the little cute finishing touches made it extra special!

A while ago I was sent the Glossybox for Men, which I gave to my soon-to-be brother-in-law to try out. The box is the same concept as the original Glossybox, apart from that it caters for men and instead of being a monthly subscription, comes every three months. 

I thought it would be good for my sister's fiancĂ© to try as they're getting married in the next few months, and of course appearance is everything when it comes to weddings! He tried all of the products and was impressed with all of them, although he wasn't too keen on the YSL scents, but I guess that's just personal preference. He thought the idea was really good, and would probably be perfect for a busy man who doesn't have much time to invest in new products. He also thought it was great for someone like him with a big event coming up, to try out new products and focus more on grooming, as not every man thinks too much about trying new grooming products.

Overall I think both Glossyboxes are a fantastic idea and I'm really impressed with the Valentines Glossybox. Did you receive a Glossybox this month? What did you think?
