Glossybox: Love is in the air

So Glossybox loves Valentine’s Day, with a special edition, themed box.


Five beauty products that are apparently designed to be our beauty soulmates. Randomly this may be the cheapest item selection I’ve seen – only one item tops £10.


Nicka K New York 24hr Waterproof Eyeliner in Dark Brown – I rarely, if ever, wear eyeliner, but when I do I go for black, so this pencil won’t get much use.


MUA Power Pout Glaze Low Voltage Gloss – there’s already been several complaints I’ve seen about this item, ranging from the low cost of it, people want items in their beauty boxes they otherwise couldn’t get, and also the rather bizarre way it’s been promoted. In the January box GB said you’d receive an email soon to select your shade, but it turns out that the email was supposedly sent in December, and not everyone (including me) received one.
Now as I don’t have a flux capacitor handy I don’t know how I’m supposed to pick a shade, but never fear, the intern will pick one not remotely based on your beauty profile – so I received a brown gloss. I’m a pale skinned, natural blonde, what use is this to me.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Floral Slanted Tweezers – because you can’t possibly already have tweezers.


Naobay Protective Hair Mask Volume Conditioner – I don’t know about you but I usually do a hair mask before washing my hair, but this apparently goes on after and rinse off. I don’t have time to faff about, so this probably won’t get used much.


Wilkinson Sword Intuition Razor – last February I got a razor in Glossybox, and look, the same thing a year later. Never mind how rude it is to assume we need to shave our legs (FYI you don’t, it’s a personal choice and I have friends who don’t), but a £7 razor doesn’t scream beauty treat to me.

Wow, is this box underwhelming. What is happening to Glossybox? Is this just stuff cluttering up the stockroom?

  1. I found glossybox very repetitive and with things like MUA and Essence which I can get for under €4 I gave up on them! Outta 6 boxes I got last year I think there was maybe 3 products id use! Everything makeup related was either very red or brown! I watch unboxings every month and since I cancelled my subscription I haven’t once went ‘wow that’s amazing wish I still got it’ I’ve just subscribed for a birchbox fingers crossed there a bit more impressive 🙂
