My February Glossybox arrived this morning, which was a pleasant surprise (even if it was an 8am wake up call) since I didn't get a tracking number for it. And if you're wondering why I didn't review last months' Glossybox, it's because I actually unsubscribed. But Groupon had an offer for this month's "limited edition" box for only $7, which is less than half price, so I thought, hey why not.
The box was a bright hot pink, perfect for the Valentines Day theme. And I love these boxes, you can use to them store nail polish (it's the perfect size) or even as a gift box.
When I first opened the box, I was met with a strong scent, that wasn't unbearable, but noticable, which turned out to to be the Shower Gel in A Sponge. It was a brand and product that was completely new to me, so I'm keen to try this out. I love how it's in a heart shape, so cute! And it's actually the size of the box. Pretty big.
The second thing that caught my eye was these parrots haha.
If you look closely at the bottom of the square, in white writing, it says 12 Emergency Cushioned Nail Files.
It's so cute! Tiny little nail files for you to chuck in your bag/wallet and those days where you chip your nail you can just bring these little things out and use them! So cute, seriously.
I received my very first e.l.f. product! It's this candy pink lip gloss, which smells amazing, sweet and fruity, but it has glitters, and I'm not really a fan of glitter on my lips, unfortunately.
Other items I received was a sample size of Proactiv's Deep Cleaning Wash (60mL) which apparently works great to penetrate pores and get rid of breakouts. It says it works on the entire body as well as your face.
And also, my favourite lip balm to date, the Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm. I'm glad I have a back-up cos I've used a lot of my other one which I received at last year's ABBW (part 1 & part 2).
Ooh and cute little heart shaped lollies! They're exactly like these little candies I used to eat when I was little...what was it called again? The colourful ones with the hot pink wrapper and there was like 10 of them inside in a roll thing. And it looks like round tablets but they were kind of sour-ish.
Ok I went and googled it. These! Wow I haven't had these in ages. Except the one I just ate just then. The heart candy I mean.
So overall the box...was pretty decent! It didn't blow me away, though. The only product I didn't like was the lipgloss, which was sad because that was my first e.l.f product :( I saw some reviews of the other boxes that people got and other people got nail polish from Polished London, and a sample of Bobbi Brown's mascara!
If I got those products in my box then this box would be 5/5 :)
Thanks for the positive comments on my vlog! n___n
I'll try my best to vlog more hehe.
