September 2012 GlossyBox

Our first-ever GlossyBox arrived last week – yep, we gave in and subscribed!

Lots of bloggers and commenters across the web are saying how disappointed they were with their box, but we thought it was ok – not too much too shout about at first glance, but actually some little gems in there…

Opening a GlossyBox for the first time was quite a treat… they are wonderfully packaged and this month the box was a special design by Maggie Li which is very pretty and girly in aqua and pink. (Do they do a special box every month? Not sure.)

We received:

Lady Gaga Fame Black Fluid Eau de Parfum – a 1.2ml sample vial, shame it wasn’t a 5ml and in one of those mini versions of the full size, but we liked the scent. Read review…

Rodial Glamoxy Snake Serum – two 1ml sachets (RRP: £29 for 10 sachets)

Rodial 5 Minute Facial – two 1ml sachets (RRP: £10.95 for 10 sachets). Read review…

Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream – 7.ml tube (RRP: £20 for 15ml)

Vichy Idealia Smoothing and Illuminating Cream – 15ml trial size (RRP: £25 for 50ml). Read review…

Maghrabian Hair Oil – 10ml trial size – possibly the hidden gem for us as so far this is working wonders, much better than Moroccanoil (RRP: £24 for 100ml)

Overall we’re pleased with the value and the products received – perhaps this is because we’re willing to try pretty much anything, while others prefer less skincare and more colour cosmetics.

We didn’t quite see how London Fashion Week fitted in to this collection, perhaps we’re not quite fashionable enough 😉
