'This month GlossyBox goes Global with hero products from around the world for you to try.'
Alessandro Pro White, £7.85 Germany - This claims to have a brightening effect on your nails and contain an anti-yellowing formula for radiant and gleaming talons. I'm quite liking this sample and it seems to be doing what it claims, I'm not sure I'd fork out for a full size but I'll definitely use this up.
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, £18.50, Japan - I was a bit wary about trying this as I'm not too keen on using oil based products on my skin. I liked how effective it was at removing my make-up but I much prefer creams so I'll stick to my NuBo and Liz Earle cleansers.
Broadway ImPress Nails, £7.99, USA - I really like the idea of these, simply peel off the backing, attach to the nails and you're ready to go. I've not had a chance to try these yet, but I've heard they're good and I quite like the colour I was sent.
Vera Valenti Eyeshadow Palette, £3.85, Spain - I'm not quite sure what was running through the heads of the GlossyBox team when this was chosen. Is this really the best Spain has to offer? The packaging is cheap, the applicator is awful, the colours are hideous and the quality is even worse.
Lipcote, £3.99, U.K - I already own a bottle of Lipcote else I would of been quite excited to see this product inside my GlossyBox. I'd heard a lot about this so I had high expectations but I didn't find it lived up to the hype for me. On 90% of my lipsticks once I'd applied this they became gloopy and almost separated on my lips, not to mention that it smells awful and is painful to apply. Check out Holly's review, I totally agree with everything she had to say.
GlossyBox Lipstick in Glossy Pink, £9.50, U.K - Eh, where to start. Does no-one else feel a bit let down by this product? I wouldn't consider GlossyBox's own brand a luxury product and I don't think the quality lives up to the price. If I pay £9.50 for a lipstick I'd expect luxury packaging, accompanied by an established brand name. I wasn't impressed with their last offerings, a blush brush if I recall which was awful quality and can't help but think that maybe these are last minute ideas to bump the number of product in the box up?
Overall I was pretty disappointed in this months GlossyBox, I'll use the ImPress nails and Pro White Varnish but I found the unboxing more exciting than the contents.
