I was suffering from a touch of beauty box fatigue last month, but this was too pretty not to show you (and it contains one of my favourite skincare brands). This month's Glossybox was designed by illustrator Maggie Li to celebrate prints and it's really beautiful. My nails were painted to match by the lovely Marie-Isabel using Essie's Turquoise and Caicos.
Of course the box alone won't justify the price tag, so inside my box was a full size Mythic Oil Colour Glow Oil. My hairdresser has used the normal Mythic Oil on me before and I wasn't a fan, but I'm happy to give the colour version a chance. There are also two generous sachets of Mythic Oil Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner. A no-go for me because of the sulphate content, but a nice way to try them as the full sizes are around £10. I've been wanting to try Lady Gaga Fame Black Fluid since I heard about it. Not because I thought it would be for me, but because you expect something a bit crazy from Lady Gaga, don't you?! So I was surprised that this is a pretty pedestrian celebrity fragrance - sweet and a bit boring. Apparently it contains 'tears of Belladonna' (a note in the more complex Illamasqua Freak, which I thought it might smell like) and 'crushed heart of Tiger Ochidea'. Hmm. I think this is in all the boxes, so let me know what you think if you're subscribed. There are also two of each Rodial Glamoxy Snake Serum and 5 Minute Facial. They are in sachets, BUT they do sell the sachets on the website and the Snake Serum is £29.50 for 10! I'm excited to try these, but at £127 for the full size, I think it's safe to say it won't be a future purchase. Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Complex isn't terribly exciting, but probably my favourite item in the box is balance Me. Wonder Eye Cream, as I'm a big fan of the brand but haven't tried this product. As usual it's 99% natural origin with no nasties, and the little hint of witch hazel and cucumber oil meant it felt nicely refreshing this morning.
Overall a very pretty and worthwhile box *ahem* with no Glossybox branded products! If you're already a subscriber, the boxes are being shipped on 17th September. Glossyboxes cost £10 plus £2.95 p&p.
GlossyBox provided me with this box for consideration.
