Glossybox UK – September 2014 – Unboxing / Review

My Glossybox just arrived and I was so excited by it that I decided to photograph it Straight away rather than waiting for Doctor Who to finish… anyone who knows me knows that it’s a big deal if something makes me want to do something whilst watching the Doctor.

The box, alone, this month, is absolutely stunning – It’s an absolute work of art and that’s because it was designed by Karen Millen which is a little bit special! 
My only disappointment, with the contents of the box, is that there’s a spoiler on the other side of the ‘coming next’ card. I don’t like spoilers, I avoid them like the plague and I wish I didn’t know. I do like the idea of knowing next month’s theme, though, and the idea of a Warhol inspired box is a little bit exciting.
I had a bit of a ‘WOW’ moment when I saw the Origins, I’ve never tried any Origins before despite Really wanting to so seeing that there’s a sample in here was very exciting – Little did I know that when I looked past the Origins I’d see some other amazing products! 

First we have a bottle of the L’Oreal Professionnel ‘Mythic Oil’ – I like hair oils a whole lot so I was more than happy to see this in there, I like the brand L’Oreal, too, but haven’t used a Lot of their hair products. This is a really impressive sized sample, you’re only going to need a small amount of this so 45ml will go a long way. The full size is 125ml and costs £15.95. 

Yup, only a Full Sized Nails Inc polish next! I do like Nails Inc, as a brand, so I was very happy to see this in there. I have a Matte top coat but it’s pretty old and was very cheap – I will be More than happy to try Nails Inc’s offering! This is worth £12. 

Yay the Origins next! I have heard Lots about the ‘Plantscription’ range so to be able to try a 2 week sample of the ‘Anti-aging Power Serum’ makes me Very happy! 15ml is a nice sized sample, for a serum, so I do think 2 weeks is an accurate length of time. 

Another full sized product next – Model Co‘s ‘More Brows Fibre Gel’ is my next item and it’s in the shade medium dark which is a darker, cool toned shade which should be perfect for my brows. 

I’m not 100% sure about having additional fibres in my brows but I’m happy to give it a go. This is worth £14.95.
I definitely don’t mind getting some sachet samples when I’ve got two, good value, full sized items and two good sized samples in the box too. These are samples of SkinPep‘s ‘Enzyme and Acid Peel’ and ‘Dark Circle Eraser’ – The card lists that the 3.5ml sachets of the peel are worth £3.05 and the 2ml sachet of the eye cream is worth £6.49… And yes, I mean the sachets, not the full sized products. Safe to say they’re the highest value sachets I’ve ever owned!!

Anyway, yes, I love the box. Surprise surprise. I like the variety of products, the types of products that they are and the value is very impressive. I also Love the box which will have to find a nice home in my collection. Very good month for me!
