It’s that time of the month again when I apologise for never getting the empties post up in something resembling prompt timing. I was in Switzerland for work until Friday night so I’ve written it up this weekend. Last month was a bumper one for empties with three cleansers, two primers, a spritz and a mask. So without further ado, let’s take a closer look…
My March Glossybox is a little later than normal but it took me a long time to get round to testing all the products and you know I like to properly review them rather than just quickly list what came. Mixed feelings this month, a couple of nice things and a few I’m reallllly not that in to. Read on for all the deets.
Only four empties this month.
- Garnier Micellar clearing water
- Dr Jart+ Water Act skin mist
- Kiko Milano Extra Sculpt mascara
- GOSH Lip Marker
When I saw that Glossybox were collaborating with La Mer for a one off box I set the reminder in my calendar straight away! I’ve always wondered at the type of people who can spend £330 on 100ml of face cream.
For that kind of money surely they must have amazing skin?
I wanted to buy this box as an experiment to see if spending the big bucks really will give you amazing skin.
That’s why I’ve waited a week to post my review; I had to use the products for a while and give them a chance to work. Read on for my scientific opinion…
I was quite annoyed with the people over at Glossybox last month so I had my fingers crossed for a great box this month and I think they’ve delivered the goods. No real theme to this month’s collection of products but that is a gorgeous Valentines box which will be going on the ‘keep’ pile.
I always like to wait until I’ve tested every product before writing up my review and I’ve finally given everything a go so let’s get into it shall we?
I’m so looking forward to summer. Sure the warm weather and barbecues will be lovely, but it also means longer days and enough light to take decent pictures for this blog. The reason we’re halfway through Feb and I’m only just posting this now is because I was away last weekend and the weekend is the only time I see real daylight at home at the moment.
So this month I finished seven products:
- Essential Hydration Cream from AlphaH
- Black Rose Cream Mask from Sisley
- Nourishing Night Cream by Utan and tone
- Mary-Lou Manager highlighter from theBalm
- Clear Skin Daily Face Wash from AlphaH
- Aromessence Néroli Hydrating Oil Serum from Decléor
- Infallible 24 Hour Matte foundation by L’Oréal
This month’s Glossybox was in collaboration with Deliciously Stella who is hilarious over on Instagram and I strongly suggest you check her out. In a world of clean eating and dieting fads she is a refreshing breath of fresh air.
So everything in this month’s ‘The Edible Edit’ is based around the theme of super-food inspired beauty.
