So.. I've been seeing this box everywhere but I'm meant to be cutting spending and being good so I held off purchasing. I also saw in the photos that it had another red nail varnish and gloss in so that put me off..
Then I found out that red is only one choice of three colours, and that the box includes a 12 month subscription to Glamour magazine. SOLD.
I ordered this online for the bargain price of £16.99 and it only took 3 days to arrive. Considering the cost of a 12 month subscription to Glamour is more than that, I'm already happy.
Here's what the box looks like open
Comes with cute and informative cards as well as discount codes for all brands included and my exclusive code for the glamour print subscription
First thing I noticed was the lipgloss from Rimmel. It's a really nice colour but I just don't use lipgloss. Will pass this on.
Then it was to the Revlon Colourstay nail varnishes! I hardly ever paint my nails anymore. Nail varnish does not stay on them for more than an hour. I've tried everything! So I wasn't too excited to recieve two in this box. However, as I received a lovely blue colour in "Full House" (rather than the dreaded over supplied red) and also as its a new gel formula, I'm going to give it a try and see if it lasts any longer than regular polish. So here's my beautiful blue shade, and the diamond gel top coat
They chucked in a free perfume sample for good measure. Not for my taste but smells like something my mum might like so I'll give it to her
Finally, the Nuxe Creme Fraiche 24hr smoothing and rehydrating fresh mask. I've received this before in a beauty box and I love it. I have combination sensitive skin and this is wonderful for when my normal oils or moisturisers just aren't doing it. I get fine dehydration lines on my forehead so tend to keep this in my bedside unit and slather it on every couple of days before I sleep and it asks to make a big difference. It has a fresh non offensive sort of dairy type smell, which sounds weird but I promise you it's not. You don't have to wash it off either of you don't want to, which is good for me as I do like to use it as a overnight treatment for my face. Here's what it looks like
And that's everything! For the price I don't think you could get better. It's a fantastic deal. All products (expect the perfume) are full size and (including the subscription for Glamour normally £24.99) the box is worth a whopping £99 which is a bit insane for £16.99.
If you're a fan of any of the products and/ Glamour magazine I would definately purchase one of these while you still can as it really is a steal
