Recent Glossy Box's, x

I received my November box in the post on Friday along with the special edition box I purchased myself it cost around £20 in addition to the subscription but as you were already told the products that would be in there I needed it in my life!

My November box didn't impress me too much although I was really excited when I saw the dermalogica daily microfoliant. I was thinking of buying this myself anyway so was lucky it was in this box.

Another item I was happy with was the Alison Claire mango body butter. It smells like heaven. It's like actual mango and not the over powering sweetness you get with some butters like the body shop range. That's about all I was impressed with in that box as well as a nice sample size of the Burberry body perfume which is nice for the day, and a definite purchase when I see it.

Now, the box I bought specifically the limited edition one. I already had the Moroccan oil but was great full for the top up! For this size i have purchased it before at £13 in my salon. I have a review i posted months ago on here on the Moroccan oil the shampoo conditioner and the mask and how I love their products for my thick hair.

Next was a cleanser from a brand called mama mio. I looked at the brand online and at first glance looks to be products for pregnant women or new mums. I tried it regardless and it was amazing it felt fresh and I felt clean ! This combined with the dermalogica microfoliant left that squeaky clean feeling but without the tightness. It is sls free so nothing to strip your skin. It contains aloe vera, probiotics, firming proteins, and essential oils. It's£22.50 for 150ml so I will be purchasing.

Next up I tried the ole henriksen truth serum collagen booster. It's 15ml and for this size alone it's £28 which is more than the whole box together. It's a nice serum and one I am using day and night to keep my skin feeling fresh. I was going to buy the Estée Lauder serum after using a tester but glad I didn't as this feels like it's working on your skin.

Next was a sample size of the ren glycolatic radiance renewal mask. It doesn't smell amazing and isn't one I'd use for a relaxing night in but it defiantly worked. It comes out like one of those gel peel off masks and I thought that's what it was going to do. But it stayed sticky on my skin until i washed it off so to me it was like a conditioner for your skin rather than a mask! My skin felt soft and healthy minus the usual blemishes it waked my skin up. Ill defiantly consider purchasing this as it does what it says! I have ordered a sample size of the glam glow mud mask so will try that too before I buy. It's £30 for 50 ml which is cheaper than the glam glow but we shall wait and see!

And lastly in my box was another serum from an australian brand called kosmea, not a brand I've heard of before but it promises to be a radiance booster that u can apply morning and night and costs £29.95 for 10ml so for size and money worth it is more expensive than the ole Henriksen serum but it feels so luxurious and spa like! It's defiantly one ill be keeping for special Occasions or pamper nights.

I love it when I get a glossy box and they are a monthly subscription at £12.50 I think. I enjoy the excitement of getting new products to try and am usually very pleased with what I receive as usually I get some high end products that are nice to try at sample size before you splurge!
