I have seen these Glamour beauty edit boxes before but never indulged in one... until now. I've had monthly subscriptions before to other beauty boxes but always found them fading out and never actually getting round to using any of the samples you receive. This box is very different to those. It's a one off beauty box for £16.95 and the products you receive in the box add up to over £86 which is crazy when you actually get full size products too.
The first item you get is an Illamasqua Glamore lipstick which is full sized and worth more than what you pay for the whole box - crazy! This is from their new nude range and is an absolutely gorgeous shade. Totally everyday wearable and I'm super excited to try this formula out. I think this is my very first Illamasqua make up product too which is super exciting. Next is Magnifibres Brush on False Lashes which is another product I was really drawn too. I have a product similar to this but I've heard a lot more about this brand. This is another full sized product again worth more than the actual box itself. These are said to lengthen your lashes by up to 5mm so I'm excited to see the results from this. Also I'm no good at false lashes so these would be a great alternative.
Next the Rimmel Instant Tan BB Skin Perfector, I got this in the shade medium. I have another Rimmel instant fake tan which I really like so I was excited to receive this new one. This product is said to have 9 different benefits to the skin which is claiming a lot. But again I'm looking forward to trying it and seeing if it lives up to those said expectations. Also a BB cream for the body is something new to me and slightly interesting! Again this is a full size product. I also got the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil aimed to remove dirt and impurities from pores and dissolve stubborn make up. I wasn't really keen on putting an oil on my face as I have oily skin but I've heard that it's still good. So I'm intrigued to try this product, this is a sample size so a great way to try it first.
I also received the Velvotan Original Tanning Mitt which I was glad to get as I was actually in need of a new one. I haven't actually heard of this mitt before. It claims it gives a streak free finish and stain free hands which is all a girl wants when fake tanning so hopefully again it will live up to these claims. Next the Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection Ultra Radiance Sun Lotion, wow what a long name. I can't say this is a product I'm excited to use but will be perfect for my upcoming holiday. This product is a travel size so again great for traveling and simply throwing in your beach bag for those daily top ups. Next I got the Bourjois Cream Blush in the shade 01, this is a cream to powder blush which is something I've never tried before and sounds interesting. I know a lot of people love the Boujois blushes to I'm looking forward to trying this one.
Next I got the Toni & Guy Volume Plumping Whip which to me sounds really interesting. I'm all about trying to get that oomph back into my hair after washing it. It aims to volumise roots and create all day body without flyaways. Another sample size so great way to try it out. I love some other Toni & Guy hair products so I'm hoping this one lives up to it's name too. I also got the Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Lacquer in a pale pink shade. I've never heard of this brand before but am a sucker for nail polishes so am excited to try it. The shade I received isn't one I'd normally go for but for the formula I'm looking forward to trying it. This is another full size product.
Overall this box is superb value for money considering you get many full size products as well as sample sizes, you really cannot complain! Considering you only pay £16.95 and get £86 worth of products I'd try snap one up as soon as possible before they sell out. I'd love to know if you've ordered one of these boxes and your thoughts? Or if you're now on your way over to purchase one I shall leave you with the link here :-)
