Glossybox March 2013 Review!

I wasn't expecting my March Glossybox to arrive today, I hadn't even looked for spoilers yet!

The month's theme is 'City Chic'. I had no idea what to expect from that!
Also included, alongside the product descriptions, was a really cute 'Little Travelling Book'.
This is a sweet little booklet divided into countries and for each country there are a few tips on either hotels, shops, food, sights etc to see. Also a page for notes and a page of cute stickers. I like this little extra!

Onto the box!....

Firstly a Tresemme extra hold hairspray. Oops, I don't use hairspray. Bummer! I'm sure I can find a home for this though. Nice size at last for Glossy though.

Then a cute mini Nails Inc polish in 'St James's'. This is a pretty good colour. Red, but almost a realllly deep pink. I would have preferred the lighter pink version, but this will still get used.

Then we have a Jelly Pong Pong lip blush. I can't see a shade name on mine, but it's red. I don't like this colour! Too strong for me and it kind of looks like a wax crayon. Shame. I looked at the ingredients and the first one is mineral oil. Hmm, mineral oil is not that good for you! Don't think I'm liking this one.

Next, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream in 7ml. I've had this before and I've had it free from an Elizabeth Arden counter, so no excitement here from me for this sample. But, it's always useful to pop into a bag and have on hand.

Lastly, a 1.5ml Juicy Couture La La perfume sample. Yep, more perfume. More floral perfume.

If Glossybox used those beauty profiles, I would be 100% more happy with my boxes. The last few months I've had strong make-up colours and floral perfumes. Exactly the opposite of my profile!
If I had got pale colours and no perfume, I would be so much better off.

This month I can't say is a disaster because the products are ok. Not to my taste, but ok. Just a change in colour and a different sample to replace the perfume and I would have liked this box a lot.

But unfortunately I won't be using half of it again because of shades and smells!

How did you find this Glossybox, did you like your shades? Also, what other boxes do you like? Lux Box, Amarya? Which ones are good and worth subscribing to?

From Me, For You xoxo


  1. I got the same box as this, but I don't really like what I got. I don't think I'll be using any of the products...

    1. I know Kath. Mine were just the wrong shades, such a shame. Liking your blog by the way. Signed up for your emails :)

  2. I've just received my box today and it's so different to yours, I think I prefer mine but I'd swap my Samphoo for your nails inc nail varnish, that would make it perfect! :)

    1. Hi Maria, I looked at yours and wow, they were different. I would have prefered yours! Id swap the Nails Inc if you like for the shampoo! x

    2. Hey! I've only seen this now! Sorry too late ;p I've been using the shampoo for the past 3 days, doesn't happen to you that when you get something new you just HAVE TO use it straight away ??! ;) x

    3. Hey, no worries Maria! Haha, I do use some things right away, but also have a lot of stuff I haven't tried yet! How is the shampoo, any good?! x
