It's that time of the month again, my Glossybox for the month of March has arrived!
As always, packaging is cute as.
One thing I noticed different about this month's info card is that there are actually 18 products on it! They actually show the other products that other boxes might have had if you had missed out on it, since you only get 5 products in a box at one time.
The only thing that's missing is the price and sizes. I don't know if I've been sent a sample or full sized product.
Here's what was in my box. At first sight, I was disappointed. Skincare? I honestly don't pay much attention to facial cleansers (which I probably should, I know) so when I saw it, I was like, "Eh...I probably wouldn't use this."
Upon another look, I realised that all my products are samples, and that there were no full sized products. Well I'm not sure about the concealer though.
So many products!
Here are my items on the list:
#07 EAU THERMALE AVENE - Cleanser & Toner
I've never heard of this brand before, and I'm been meaning to check out a few skin care items, so I'm gonna give this a go, but no promises as to if I'll be sticking to this routine.
I'm currently using St. Ive's Apricot Scrub, if I remember (or bothered) to wash my face.
#08 KLORANE - Dry Shampoo
Again, I have never heard of this brand before, but since I do love anything to do with dry shampoos, I wanna see how this goes.
#16 THE BODY SHOP - Chocolate Body Butter sample
#17 THIN LIZZY - Concealer
#17 THIN LIZZY - Concealer
I never end up using samples that come in these packets. I don't know why haha. I still have foundation samples in their packets too. I just never really use any kind of samples in packets. But since it is The Body Shop and it's chocolate, I'll give it a shot.
The concealer! Wow, I was actually looking for a new concealer and was about to buy the Maybelline Lumi Touch Illuminating Concealer yesterday but I'm glad I didn't cos this concealer is really good from what I've tried so far. I applied it to under my eyes and some pimple scars and this thing covers up goooood!
The consistency is kind of thick, but blends out well and it's kind of sticky but nothing that loose powder on top can't resolve. I love that it's my shade too (lucky!) in Oriental Doll.
|Left: Blended. Right: Swatched|
Another thing they added was this bracelet thing......and according to the info card, it's a "power balancing bracelet...often worn by athletes who find that it supports their strength and flexibility"
UMMM, first thought of mine was: "It's a piece of rubber that looks like it has some silver stickers stuck on the side. How's this supposed to help?"
*puts it in the pile of things I'll never use*
So overall, the box was once again, okay. According to the products I got, I guess I could use them fully. To be honest, none of the boxes I've received in the past, have I ever used every single product. Maybe this time around, I will actually utilise them all. Except the bracelet LOL.
My favourite product in this box would definitely be the Thin Lizzy concealer! That thing is amazing. No wonder they advertised it on tv for a long time, that concealer does wonders.
Hope your Glossybox was ok!
Although, I think I'm definitely gonna take a break from beauty sample boxes.
