This month’s Glossybox (November 2016) is good value for money and has some nice items inside, but it isn’t one of my favourites – it didn’t wow me like some of the previous months’ boxes have.
The first product in this month’s Glossybox* (£10 per month plus P&P from Glossybox) is the full-size Ruby Professional Large Tapered Blending Brush (8 Euros from Ruby Professional). This eyeshadow or precision contour blending brush has long soft cruelty-free bristles. It feels lovely on the skin, but I just don’t get on with it at all in terms of performance. The bristles are too soft – there’s no firmness to them that allow you to actually blend anything. You can dust lightly with this brush, but that’s about all.
Next up is another beauty ‘tool’ and another full-size product- the Wilkinson Sword Quattro For Women Raspberry Rain Disposable Razors (£5.69 for 3 from Wilkinson Sword). I’m not quite sure why you would want scented razor handles, but each to their own. The razors themselves perform well and comfortably and you can never have enough back-up razors can you?!
There is also a makeup, haircare and skincare product in the box. The skincare item is a full-size sheet mask from 111Skin. I reviewed one of their masks a few months ago (here) and they are quite expensive, so this is a nice inclusion in this month’s box. The 111Skin Bio Cellulose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask (£20 for 1 from 111Skin). I really like their sheet masks as they give great immediate results. This one is designed to brighten the skin, condition and moisturise it and also stimulate collagen production. You wear it for 20 minutes and when you remove it you’ll have soft, plump and smooth skin.
The makeup item in the box is a really nice full-size eyeshadow crayon from a brand that I hadn’t heard of before. The De Bruyere Beaute Jumbo Eye Pencil in Bubble 07 (15 Euros from De Bruyere Beaute) is a khaki-gold shade that’s dark, smokey and burnished. The brand is French and this product is really long-lasting and has such a creamy formula. This is a great product to just quickly draw onto your lids, then smudge out and you’re ready to go in just a few seconds.
Finally, there is a miniature spray bottle of the Nanogen Root Boost Hair Thickening Spray (£9.95 for 100ml from Nanogen). I haven’t tried this yet, but it’s designed to be used when blow-drying your hair and is supposed to give you salon blow-dry results at home. You spray it all over your hair from root to tip, then blow-dry to activate the heat-activated proteins for strenghtening, thickening and volumising.
Have you had this month’s box? What did you think?
