Glossybox Januari 2014
As I promised earlier, here is the Januari Glossybox.. in Januari!
I have to say, I’m pretty disappointed in Glossybox. In the beginning I was very excited after I did some research about the boxes. It seemed to be filled with (almost) always awesome stuff. A month or two before I got my first Glossybox, the boxes were ehhm.. – ok -. But I thought, not everything can always be perfect. This is my fourth box already and I haven’t been really pleased yet. Not fully pleased. Glossybox promised to start this year out ‘fresh’. The January box was better than the December box, but it isn’t really the ‘fresh’ start they were promising.
Again, you can’t always please everyone.. but this just isn’t the effort they should have made. A lot of customers have complaints about Glossybox. Fortunately, I haven’t experienced them:
– Boxes coming too late (some are still waiting for the December box)
– Products are half filled, broken or not complete
– E-mails and calls are not being answered
– Beauty bloggers get the boxes in advance, ánd post them in advance: spoiler!
All in all, I wouldn’t recommend getting the Glossybox at the moment. Maybe Glossybox will live up to their promises, maybe not. It’s a matter of waiting.. but waiting is no fun for the members.
Not all boxes are the same but my box contained:
Beauty Bird – Fly High Foot Gel / Fullsize: €9.00
This footgel is supposed to cool off your warm, tensioned and tired feet or legs.
Alessandro – Pro-White Nail Polish / Fullsize: € 9,30 – 10 ml
Pro-White Nail Polish should be used on clean nails. It creates an optic shine and contains anti-yellow formula (not really clear WHAT formula). It is said to have a special pigment that neutralizes discolouration on the nails.
Benefit – The POREfessional – Sample 3 ml / Fullsize: € 33,00 22 ml
This Benefit product is to minimize the size of pores and wrinkles, for an extreme soft and silky skin. It can be applied before and after your make-up.
Karmameju – Konjac Sponge / Fullsize: €9,25
I’ve never seen this before, pretty original. The Karmameju Konjac Sponge is to exfoliate , clean and purify the skin. Next to that, it is said to stimulate the blood flow to recover the skin.
Prestiche – Soap Bar / Fullsize: €12,30
This small piece of soap is said to be full of selected natural ingrediënts: Sead mud and salts, shea butter, eucalyptus, tea trea, frankincense, and a pure blend of beneficial oils. The scent is pretty strong and smells like spices, you’ve got to love it or not. Unfortunateley, palm oil is on of the main ingrediënts.
Othes boxes had a mix of these and other products:
Être Belle – Sheet Mask – Sample / Fullsize: €33,80 – 10 masks
1 Mask sample with aloë vera for hydrating the skin, the mask is not liquid.
Absolute – Cleaning Tissues / Fullsize: €5,05
Cleaning tissues for removing you make up, it’s said to be especially good for waterproof mascara.
