£10 + £2.95 P&P*

I've been a big fan of Glossybox since the very beginning and even though I've had some amazing boxes and some not so good, last month i took the decision to unsub due to lack of funds. I was secretly hoping this one would be bad so i wouldn't feel like i was missing out, so you could only imagine how happy i was when the Postman delivered this little beauty to me a few weeks ago! A totally unexpected surprised, but much appreciated none the less. I have to say that this is one of my favourite boxes too, everything is totally something i would use and I've had lots of fun trying it all out!

Full size. I got the purple one in my box which is a colour perfect for my dark eyes, i think the green would have been good too. I never really got in to Eyeko and i can't say i think much of their 're branding' but i must admit this quality is pretty good. It's quite long lasting and it makes a nice change to have a different colour on my water line. I wouldn't however say it was worth the price tag!

Sample size 5.3ml. This is the most perfect colour, it's a beautufl deep red which is perfect for this time of year, i don't actually own a colour like this so it gets a big tumbs up from me. I think it's a pretty reasonable price and you know you're going to get a decent product with ORLY.

Sample size 56.7g. A nice product, it does exactly what it says on the box and left my skin feeling very soft and nourished. I don't however like the scent which will probably stop me using it again. I like sweet scents to products and this is too bitter for me, sorry i can't be any more helpful than that!

Sample size 10ml. I've tried Weleda products before so i was really pleased to see another example of their collection in here. It's a lovely little product and it's the perfect size for travel. It has a slight lavender scent which to me gives it a really nice relaxing feel and i would be more than happy to buy a full size bottle when this one runs out.

MURAD £29 30ML
Sample size 5ml. I haven't got round to using this product yet as I'm using another face primer oat the moment for review, but from what I've read I'm really excited to try it out and see if it's living up to all the hype. I love a product that says it's going to leave a glow and dewy finish so fingers crossed it does that!

Overall I'm so pleased with this box, like i said before i think it's up there with my favorites. I'm really gutted that i had to unsub, but i just couldn't justify it at the moment but I'm looking forward to seeing what's in next months box and will hopefully be back on the Glossy bandwagon soon!

Happy Valentines Day!


  1. Thats such a shame you had to unsubscribe! I love Glossbox, I'm yet to do a review though!

  2. Great review :-) I have subscribed to Feel Unique (although that is no more...sob) and Carmine and have been very impressed. I really like the look of Glossyboxes x

  3. I got the exact same contents as you, although I would have preferred the pinky coloured eyeko eyeliner, purple isn't really my colour :( I'm using the primer at the minute and I'm loving it, great dewy look :)

  4. I got exactly the same things in my glossybox, compared to other reviews I've seen with a face cream instead of the nail polish..

    I too also had to unsubscribe this month for the same reasons.. but hopefully sooner or later I will sign back up when I get a few pennies back in my jar.

    great review victoria xx

  5. I must admit the Spanish box is worse, I reviewed it yesterday on my blog if you are curious, I am so sad Glossyboxes here are so dissapointing...

  6. GAH I wish I purchased this beauty box that everyone is raving about!
    I have just found your blog and I love it! I've just added a new post, come have a look- it would mean so much!?
