February Glossybox! Valentines Day Edition!


It's that time again! My favourite time of the month!!! My Glossybox came!!!! I get so excited when I see the pretty pink boxes and can't wait to see what is inside! Normally I have a sneak peak online as to what other people are receiving but this month, it was a total surprise as I resisted any peeking :) This month is even more special as it came in an even prettier box if that is even possible, isn't it gorgeous???? 

Ok, so who wants to see the first item??? :)

Also I did a swatch of some of the products in the above picture just to give you an idea of the shades :)

Anatomicals: You Need A Blooming Shower Your Nose Smells Rose Body Cleanser
I have noticed that each time this brand is included the are always mixed reviews, some subscribers love it some hate it, as for me I am always pleased to receive a product from Anatomicals, in my opinion they do make nice products, and who can resist such quirky product names :) Normally I am not one for Rose scented products, but I quite liked this one, I used it this evening and it gave a nice lather, the smell lasts quite a while on the skin too :)
Full size of this product is 300ml for £5, amount received is 150ml.
MicaBella Cosmetics Mineral Eyeshadow
This is one product I knew i was going to get as Glossybox did a reveal on their facebook page, and I knew I was going to love it!!! It's a fantastic glittery colour. Just gorgeous, and can be used for daytime/evening use! Application tip from glossybox is to dampen your brush before applying. This costs £14.95 for 2.5g, amount received is 1g.


Sassoon Salon: Sassoon Professional Shine Spray
I was also pleased to see this nestled inside the box, as I do have a fondness for hair care products, if you saw my storage cupboard you would like likely say it was less a fondness and more of an obsession, so much so I am running out of space!(must not buy, must not buy)
I will probably do a more in-depth review of this as soon as I have given it a good trying out, so keep your eyes peeled :) Full size is 250ml for £14.89, amount received is 50ml.

MeMeMe Cosmetics FatCat Lengthening Mascara
There was also a fair amount of disgruntled customers to see MeMeMe products in the boxes, which is essentially a drugstore brand, and very affordable, that being said this mascara does cost £7.99 for 8ml(which is what we received), which isn't as cheap as other brands, so I could always use another mascara, the packaging is nice, in a matte black tube, although I did notice when opening the tube, it has a very strange scent. 
Miners Cosmetics Lip Colour
I recieved this in shade Dreamer(you can see the swatch above)again not many people were pleased to have a miners product in the box, but I have never tried this brand and for me trying new things is what Glossybox is all about regardless of the price, also this lipstick smells gorgeous, has a really lovely fruity smell :) and I like the colour too, a really shimmery pink. This costs £3.99 for 4g.
Also we got a really cute heart shaped lollipop, which I think was a nice touch :)

So what did you think of this months Valentine Box, if you are a subscriber. Did you love it? or hate it with a passion? Please leave your thoughts, ramblings or anything else in the comments box, I would love to hear from you :)

Thanks for reading and until next time

  1. I quite liked this box because it had a mixture of products in it. I hate it when it's a box just full of skin care! Saying that I got the most vile colour of lipstick!! Lol
