- Treseme Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Fragrance FreeSample Size 7ml worth £3.50 , full size £25 for 50ml
I have been wanting to try this cream for a while as heard so much about it. Tried is twice so far and haven't seen any difference or it didn't 'WOW' me so I'll carry on using it until I come to a decision, whether to buy full size or not. Shame about the size, wish it was a bigger sample, though it's deluxe size so won't complain too much.
Nails Inc nail polish (Shade: St. James)Sample Size 4ml worth £4.40, Full size £11 for 10ml
I love Nails Inc brand and own quite a few shades by them already. The colour I received was quite nice although I wouldn't pick this up if I was buying one , cute size to try too. I tried it with glitter on top of it as well as top coat that I received in November's GlossyBox, looked really nice and had a few compliments at work :)
Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Lip BlushSample Size 2.5g Full size £12
I love Jelly Pong Pong, I have tried some of their products before, I think their packaging is cute and adorable and this one was no different(though, didn't receive a box with it as it shows on the leaflet). I received bit like rossie red shade. I am not normally a fan of Red lipstick/balm/gloss however this one was actually quite nice, stayed on for a good few hours. It's creamy and doesn't break your lip lol and most importantly, it's well pigmented :)
Juicy Couture Perfume , Couture La La LaSample size 1.5ml worth £0.95 , Full Size £63 for 100ml
OK, now the moaning part. I absolutely hate receiving perfume samples in my beauty boxes. I don't mind receiving them as an extra but not as 1 of 5 products. Especially when, Other people received a deluxe sized L'Occitane Cream who didn't receive this perfume sample , now how does it balance? That cream is worth around £12 and this perfume sample is worth 95p! Though I love the smell and I already own this perfume in 30ml bottle. This is a let down sample of the box.
I posted my concern on GlossyBox fan page on facebook and here's the PrtSc :
Oh well :-/
Tresemme Salon Finish Extra Hold HairspraySample size 100ml worth £0.93 , Full Size £4.69 for 500ml
I already own one of this product in full size and to be honest I wouldn't have repurchased this. It's quite sticky and has normal holding power. I prefer my all time favorite L'oreal hairspray which you can brush away without having to wash your hair or damage it. Would give this product away to someone.
Last but not the least, Glossy Box included a cute little booklet of Travel info. There are a few stickers inside which I thought was really cute and travel info about different countries would come in handy when travelling. Thank you Glossy Box for this :)
What do I think about March Glossy Box 2013 overall?
I normally like all my Glossy Boxes however, my only complain is the perfume samples they put in as one of the products and their variations are sometime quite unfair. But again, I love Glossy Boxes and would definately continue being a subscriber. I liked 2 and would use 3 out of 5 products from this month's box.
I give Glossy Box 3 out of 5 this month.
What do you think of your Glossy Box? , would love to hear your opinion
Feel free to leave a comment :)
Love, Fatema x
