Unboxing February’s Glossybox

Unboxing February’s Glossybox

27th February 2018 10 By Rachael Stray

February is the month of love which meant a special theme for Glossybox – a ‘Galentine’s Day’ edition packed full of products for a girly night.

The box itself is really cute and there was a good mix of products that I couldn’t wait to try!

For those of you who are knew to Glossybox it is a monthly beauty box subscription that is delivered right to your door. Details of how to sign up for yourself are at the end of this post.

Many of you will already know that the hubby and I bought a new house and moved in just before Christmas. I received my December Glossybox as usual but unfortunately my

The January box got lost! I am waiting on a replacement so an unboxing January Glossybox post will hopefully not be too far away.

Anyway back to February’s unboxing…

What is in the February Glossybox?

Steve Laurant: Nude Pop Lip Tint (Full size – £17)
Glossybox states: “This gorgeous creamy lip tint is cruelty-free, hydrating and long-lasting!”

I really love the rose gold packaging and that the formula is cruelty-free. It is a lovely natural shade that I’m sure I will be using as part of an everyday look!

So far I’ve found it to be long-lasting and really hydrating – which is exactly what I look for in a good lip product. It’s also very handbag or pocket friendly in size too so you can easily carry it around with you.

Studio10 Beauty: Makeup Mist Glow-Plexion (Not full size – *Full size retails for £26, Mini size retails for £14)
I’m a big fan of a multi-tasking product so was excited to try this.

Glossybox states: “This mist instantly primes, refreshes and hydrates lacklustre skin. It can also be used as a setting spray.”

So far I’ve found this to be lightweight while smoothing and illuminating my tired winter skin. I think it’s also making a wee bit of a difference to minimise the appearance of my pesky pores and my skin feels refreshed and looks brighter too.

I think this is perfect for skin that’s being affected by the cold weather and central heating.

Sleek Makeup: Divine Eyeshadow Palette – Storm (Full size – £8.99)
Glossybox states: “Take your look from natural to dramatic with the 12 super pigmented shades in this palette.”

I love a good eyeshadow palette especially one that has a range of colours that can be used for a natural day look (which I am a big fan of) or something for a sultry smoky look for an evening (perhaps a date night).

I haven’t tried the palette out yet but I think the shimmery nude shades will be my favourite – I’ll keep you posted!

Ciaté London: Gelology & Paint Pots – Ibiza Blue (Not full size – *Full size retails for £9, Mini size retails for £6)
Glossybox states: “Your Ciaté nail varnish is PETA certified and vegan friendly. With a gel finish, Ciaté’s polishes allow flexibility to minimise chipping and provide up to 10 days of high gloss shine.”

I’ve received a nail varnish from this brand in a previous box and liked it so I’m looking forward to trying this out soon! I think the small bottle would be perfect for travelling and I like the look of the colour too – a touch of spring!

Icona Milano: Emotion Allowed Mascara (Full size – £15)
Glossybox states: “With a creamy formula perfect for building extreme volume that lasts, this mascara is cruelty-free and smudge, water and humidity resistant.”

I was looking forward to trying this mascara out but unfortunately it was missing from my box. I contacted Glossybox and they issued me a refund of £5 directly into my bank account.

What did I think of the February Glossybox?

This box was more make-up heavy than previous boxes which is no bad thing. I think receiving an eye palette with so many lovely colours is always a winner for me – especially for the price of the box £13.25 (including postage and packaging).

I’m disappointed my mascara wasn’t included as I’m always looking to try new mascaras in my quest to find a firm favourite.

Overall I’m not disappointed with the box and I’m looking forward to hopefully shortly receiving my January box and of course unboxing March.

However, if I have any issues with my March box it may be time to re-evaluate my subscription.
