When I saw the first pictures on Facebook yesterday my anticipation dropped. Nothing looked particulary luxurious or useful. Today it arrived and I definitely opened it with less excitement than before, quite sad...my first reaction was "Oh, not that bad at all!"...and then I had a proper look and think and now I´m more critical.
Bärbel Drexel? I have never heard of and the products look not very appealing. It might be very green and healthy and I will definitely use the cooling eye roll-on but it doesn´t smell of anything and looks bland...hmm. Full-size at least.
BM Beauty? Again, never heard. Although I have become a blush addict with help of the blogosphere I´m not sure about this one. How to apply it? No brush fits into that tiny pot. Surprising that this is a full size!
The Eubos creme? Yeah, just used up the matching night cream - would have been better to hand them out as a set. Will be used but it´s tiny and a bit boring.
The Guhl shampoo has a decent travel size and is for sure a nice product, just not for me. My hair hardly reaches 10cm now so a nourishing shampoo for long hair is not really suitable - how good I have a husband with veeery long hair and a lot of use for this.
Illamasqua is a brand I´m interested in quite a lot as their products look fun and the so does their flagship store in London. To own a lip gloss of their range now is great and I´m looking forward to use it. The highlight of the box for me! If only the colour would be more wearable. Need to pick a very brave day to apply this one as it looks really dark...
And last but not least the Thomas Sabo perfume mini tester. Yeah, I´m not into the charm club thing at all. The perfume smells...ok...too chocolatey for my taste. And it doesn´t last very long at all.
Yes, I so wanted to be blown away by this box. I so want to stay their subscriber cause of the monthly excitement. 15€...I´m not sure now. I might swap to the Glossybox UK cause they looked amazing recently. Have to think about this one but, somehow I think the decision will be made fairly soon by the glossybox going out of business with all subscribers getting pissed off by the 50% price increase and the unsatisfying products...what a shame.
PS: Before I forget - it came with a postcard telling me about the new glossymag, incl. a competition ending on the 3.5.12...great when the box only got send on that day.
