GLOSSYBOX: September 2012.

Maggie lee for 
glossybox
September 2012 edition



- This month I missed the arrival of my GlossyBox… Instead I was greeted by the familiar packaging laid on my bed when I popped home this weekend.
I was plesantly surprised to be greeted with a beautiful mint and pink, pastel Glossybox exclusivley designed by the London based illustrator, Maggie Lee.
With London Fashion week dominating every fashionistas calendar in September, the Glossy girls put together The Rising Stars Box' which introduces us to the most exciting rising stars across fashion, design and beauty.

This months offering…

Balance Me
Wonder Eyecream
Full size product: £20 for 15ml

"A triple action cream designed to soothe tired eyes, smooth away dark shadows and reduce the appearance of fine lines."
- I was so pleased to see this product in the box.. two weeks of freshers and living in halls has taken its toll on the old eye bags and I have never looked more like a zombie.
The cream is refreshing and cool around the eye and better still is 99% organic.

Loreal
Techniart full volume mousse
Full Size product: £10.30/250ml

"Create big boudoir hair and overall volume without weighing the hair down"
-  I have never been a huge fan of mousse products, they tend to leave my hair feeling greasy and unpleasant but having tried this product I was impressed with voluminosity that it gave my usually flat, straight, lifeless hair! I am very tempted to purchase the full sized product as a mousse convert.
Also included in the box was a frizz control serum, the Loreal 'Liss control' I have yet to try this product so I am sure I will be popping up a little review of this at some point.

The Body Shop
Vitamin E, crem hydratant
Full Size Product: £9/50ml

" The best selling daily moisturiser hydrates skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth"
- Always a firm handbag favourite I love Body shop products and lovely little cream is perfect for the winter months and chapped, dry skin!

Rodial
Glamoxy Snake serum and 5 minute facial
Full sized products £29 and £10.95

"Glamoxy snake serum is a revolutionary product with instantly visable results, helping to reduce the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles. The 5 minute facial is a triple action resurfacing gommage clay mask."
- I was so intrugied to find out what the snake serum was! Well, how could you not with a name like that? I have yet to try this product as wrinkle reduction isn't a priority as much as a skin rejuvinating mask is. The facial mask is so skin softening but there are other masks on the market for a much more budget and dare I say 'student' friendly price!

Lady Gaga
The Fame fragrance
30ml/£25 50ml/£32 and 100ml £61.

"An opulent, crushed floral fragrance thats black like the soul of fame but transparent once airborne."
- I have to be honest I am not a fan of this fragrance at all, it is far too fruity for my liking.

What do you think of his months offering?
Are you still a Glossybox fan?
I keep noticing that every Glossbox review that I have read features different products…
Are all Glossybox's different?
Love, Holl

  2. Really jealous of your box. I got the Rodial samples and the Lady Gaga perfume but missed out on the Loreal samples. I'm still in two minds as to whether or not I should cancel because the last 2 boxes I have received haven't been that great :-/ x

  4. -Beauty is a manifestation of secret natural laws, which otherwise would have been hidden from us forever.
