Its that time of the month again for the arrival of Glossy Box! The Glossy Box team say this box is ideal for sampling a few treats to then pop on your Christmas list, but in my opinion, this box is perfect for a bit of evening pampering, complete with bath salts, nail wraps, perfume, foot cream and a moisturizer!
The highlight of this Glossy Box for me personally are the Nail Rock nail wraps and the foot cream. I received the classic leopard print Nail Rock design which I have been eyeing up for a while and I’m looking forward to trying this range of wraps (I normally use Nail Couture LA’s ones) so I’ll be comparing them in a separate post soon.
I never ever pamper or treat my feet; they are in pretty good condition anyway so I don’t bother, but after working so much overtime in retail in the preparation to Christmas my feet are getting tired and this cream is the perfect way to hydrate and smooth them. This Arbonne FC.5 Cooling Foot Creme has the usual peppermint foot cream smell which I also find deodorizes feet: an added bonus.
As you probably know if you read my blog, I can’t use bubble bath, bath bombs or soaks because I always get a certain skin reaction to them, so the bag of Dead Sea Spa Magik Bath Salts in my box aren’t going to be of much use to me, BUT after brainstorming I’ve decided using these salts in a foot bath before using the foot cream would make the perfect pampering session after work. Also, I’m going to experiment mixing a handful of salts with some water to try and create a body scrub – I will not give up!
I’ve used a few Monu products in the past (they have an incredible body moisturizer), but am always weary about using sample sizes of skin care on my face due to acne reactions – think I might give this to my sister to try. Finally, the Serge Luten’s perfumes are not to my taste at all! I hate musky scents, I don’t think they suit my personality, but because these are unisex fragrances I might see if my dad likes them!
What I think: I’m quite happy with my box, I’d rate it on a 3/5 because two of the samples aren’t to my taste. It doesn’t have any actual makeup items, which are always a pleasure to find in the GB, but it still an all-rounded box with some great samples to try. But I am well jel of all the girls who got the Illamsqua Freak Perfume sample their box as I’ve been curious to see what its like!
Which one of these products would you pop on your stocking list? Which products do you use at home to pamper yourself?
xxxI’ve recently become a Glossy Box Ambassador with a few other beauty bloggers and I’m literally so excited about it! This means that us bloggers get a chance to talk with the brands inside your GB boxes and to even perhaps feature in a Glossy Box online video tutorial (I’d LOVE to do this!). This also means I will get sent a GB free of charge each month, but please note this will not sway or affect my reviews, which are always honest and trustworthy.
