It was like Christmas morning when I woke up this morning to find my GlossyBox left on the doorstep. I was a good girl and waited until I got to the office before ripping it open. Everyone will be in agreement that this box had a hard reputation to maintain and I'm on the fence as to whether it did or not, but more of that later! Here are the products in all their glory:
(L-R) Mama Mio Body Buff, Lalique Perfume, BioEffect EGF Serum, OPI and Batiste.
So let's get into the little on the fence debate I'm having. When I signed up, it was to get 5 luxury samples every month to try before splashing the cash. Last time I checked, Batiste was readily available at the pound shop, not exactly luxury now is it? On the other hand, this month they themed the box for the summer, which I thought was a great idea and also something that could keep this company versatile and original. They've also made up for the Batiste with an array of discounts, 3 in total.
Now onto my first thoughts for each product...
BATISTE ORIGNAL DRY SHAMPOO
Obviously, you can guess I wasn't best pleased when I opened this, but considering the theme, I can see why they put it in. I swear by Batiste so having a handbag sized one will be really useful.
BIOEFFECT EGF SERUM
This serum is supposed to stimulate the growth of skin cells, hydrate and give your skin a younger finish. I will try this after cleansing my skin later on. I'm hoping this product will grow on me and make more sense after use, at the moment I'm a bit WTF?
GlossyBox redeemed themselves with this product. I'm a sucker for perfume, and this smells gorgeous. It's quite floral, with what I think a bit of a spicy tone to it. i'm definitely going to alternate this with my everyday perfume.
OPI DESIGNER SERIES MINI NAIL LACQUER
Firstly, how gorgeously sweet is this miniture OPI?! I have only one of these polishes, always tempted by the Katy Perry collection. I love this colour, it's a mix of a raspberry pink mixed with a purple and blue glitter. It's also the perfect colour for my outfit for tomorrow night, so I believe this could be fate. The only problem with this is that the colour isn't stated, so if I were to re-order than I wouldn't know where to start.
MAMA MIO OMEGA BODY BUFF
The last product was some body buff exfoliator. Now, this again is another of those fated products, as I intend to fake tan so will need to 'buff' my skin before hand. I've been told that Mama Mio are a great brand so I'm excited to try this out. This is also a hefty sample, all 125ml of it!
In order of most excited to try, here they come:
2. Mama Mio
5. Batiste (I already know this works..)
So that's it for this months first impressions. As always, two weeks from today I will review products after use. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this months box if you received it or are merely reading this blog post.
I hope you're all well and enjoyed todays sunshine.
