Everyone and their mother has blogged about Glossy Box’s Natural Box offering. Unfortunately mine arrived only yesterday but her are my thoughts none the less. (You can back order boxes from Glossy Box).
I really like the box itself. It’s 100% biodegradable but mine won’t end up in the recycling bin anyway. I use my boxes to store make-up, products, as drawer organisers… you get the idea.
Needless to say, all of the products are natural and ethically sourced in this box.
Figs & Rouge Lip Balm: I love this already. My sister once brought me back a lip balm from a market in Greece and I used it everyday until I hit metal. This reminds me of it. It’s 100% organic and it’s also multifunctional; lips, cuticles, heel rubbing, dry skin patches… all the usuals.
Inika Cosmetics Certified Organic Eyeliner: I love eyeliners and always have a few on the go at the same time. I haven’t had a very good experience with organic eyeliners so far so I was surprised to like this one. I was also delighted that I received a sapphire shade rather than plain old black.
Philip B Drop Dead Straightening Balm: Silicone-free and non greasy. This tube is a good size considering how little of it you will use. It’s designed for use on wavy or curly hair to make it straight and de-tangle. I have straight hair but I still tried it to take out tangles. My hair was smooth and sleek.
Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst-Quenching Serum: This is my first experience with Caudalie. I spend quite a bit of money on natural face products so I was excited to see this. I wish the sample was a little bigger though, it would give more of an opportunity to really try out the product before I would purchase the full size.
Monu Professional Enriched Body Cream: I like the Monu products I have tried so far – all of them have been from Glossy Box! This smells like every other natural body cream so I wouldn’t get too excited. It will come in handy for traveling but my pregnant nose is finding essential oils a bit much these days. My skin is dry so I would expect to get only two full body applications with this size (hotel cosmetics size).
I’m really looking forward to Glossy Box’s May edition as it’s their first birthday this month!
