Glossybox March 2017 - Review: Spring has arrived!

Thursday, 23 March 2017






Hey everyone! 

Today's post is on the March Glossybox UK edition, I'm so excited to tell you all about it because it's a good'un.

After February's Glossybox I was worried that it would go downhill in my expectations because last month's was SO GOOD. Thankfully, they've kept up their high standards into March and I've got some fantastic products to share with you all!

Firstly, we have a lovely hand cream from Crabtree and Evelyn called 'Somerset Meadow Hand Therapy' which sounds positively spring-like! It comes in bright yellow packaging signally the start of those sunny days, however knowing Britain, it's still going to be cold for a little while which means the hand cream is a perfect addition to my handbag this spring. It has a lovely subtle floral scent and goes onto the hands so easily without being sticky like some other cheaper hand creams are! With the key nourishing ingredient of shea butter in, it feels genuinely like it's doing some good which I can't say for many hand creams I've tried and for the very reasonable price of £6 you really can't go wrong!

RRP - £6 for full size (currently on sale for £4.20 on their own website!) Shop: http://www.crabtree-evelyn.co.uk/hand-care/hand-cream/somerset-meadow-hand-therapy-25g-801323/

Next up we have the 'Eye Love' eye cream from oOlution (I promise I spelt it right). It contains 100% natural ingredients and is full of hydrating and rich antioxidants which promises to get rid of dark circles and puffiness around the eyes, perfect for a uni student with a rather messed up sleeping pattern... The product feels really nice around the eyes and definitely feels a lot better on my skin than some which are full of synthetic ingredients! The inventor of this brand wanted the products to be luxury and it has a price tag to match, so perhaps not something I would purchase myself just because I don't really use eye creams that much, however I will be using it until it's empty; I can guarantee!

RRP - £30 for full size (which is included) Shop: www.oolution.com

The next product is one I am super excited about, it's the 'In transit camera close-up' primer from This Works. Glossybox reports it to be loved by stars such as Victoria Beckham so it certainly has a lot to live for. As well as a primer it claims to balance, plump-up and brighten the skin leaving it ready for the camera! Any primer that acts as a moisturiser is great in my books however I'm unsure I'd be willing to pay £30. I'm looking forward to giving it a try and see if it is any good!

RRP - £30 for full size (sample size worth £15) Shop: http://www.boots.com/this-works-in-transit-camera-close-up-40ml-10156109

Next up, Skinfix Foaming oil cleanser, something that to be honest, doesn't particularly thrill me a great deal. As someone who has fairly oily skin already, I really don't delve into any cleansers that are oil-based because they just don't feel right on my skin. However, this is a foaming cleanser which is then washed off afterwards and has a coconut base so perhaps this will be more gentle than some of the other oil based make up removers/cleansers. I do really like foaming cleansers as a concept because my face always feels so clean and fresh afterwards so I'm definitely going to give it a go in the hope that it won't leave my skin feeling more oily!

RRP - £14.99 Shop: Boots.com

Finally, the product which I think is the highlight of the box, the Sleek 'Dancing til Dusk' Palette! It's a beautiful eye and cheek palette which has a couple of lovely pink/peachy blushers and some nude-toned eyeshadows also. I'm so excited to try this because I love Sleek's products so much. (if you haven't tried the Cleopatra quad highlighting palette do it right now) It's always good to a product from a brand you already adore in a box so I'm super pleased it was something I didn't yet have and can't wait to try properly!

RRP - £10 Shop: www.sleekmakeup.com/uk

Verdict: This is a good box which is particularly good value for money, as the products together are worth around £65. I am really looking forward to using my Sleek palette as they are perfect shades for my skintone, I personally like to see more make-up over skincare in a box so it's lacking slightly, however I think all these products set us up well for the start of spring, which in England is still pretty cold so the inclusion of more skincare is probably very sensible!

Hope you've enjoyed reading about the products included in my March Glossybox! Have you tried any of the products above? What do you think of Glossybox?
