|February 2013 GlossyBox♦ (£12.95)|
I also really like the little GlossyBox heart shaped lollipop as an added extra, although I must say when I opened the box it was heart side down, the stick was hidden and I totally thought it was a GlossyBox condom. Yeah. It's not. I'm glad it's a lollipop, less awkward! This was one of those stories I probably should have kept to myself...
SASSOON SPRAY SHINE. (50ml sample)
Hair products never really excite me but I am always on the lookout for products that promise to give shine to the hair. I've always been envious of you beautiful brunette's whose locks are super shiny no matter what because my blonde, super fine hair is just a bit crap in comparison to be honest! The Sassoon Spray Shine promises to give revolutionary shine, we shall see about that. First impressions are that it doesn't smell very nice. A full size 250ml bottle retails for £14.89 making this sample worth around £3.
ANATOMICALS YOU NEED A BLOOMING SHOWER BODY CLEANSER. (150ml sample)
I read a lot of comments when an Anatomicals product was included in a previous month that thought the packaging was rude and obnoxious & I definitely think some of their wording needs to be taken with a pinch of salt, but I can't lie, sometimes it makes me giggle. I liked the scrub I received previously and I'm sure I'll enjoy their You Need A Blooming Shower body cleanser, mostly because it smells like rose and I LOVE rose! I like the bright packaging and it's nice to receive products that you know you'll actually use. I can't say Anatomicals will ever be a must have brand, but I do think they have some nice affordable products. A full size 300ml bottle retails for £5 making this sample worth £2.50.
MeMeMe FAT CAT MASCARA. (Full Size)
Always being on the lookout for a good volumising mascara, I'm very much looking forward to giving this Fat Cat Mascara from MeMeMe a go. From first impressions the brush looks really nice, it doesn't seem to get overloaded with product and it's not so big that it would be difficult to work with. This is a full size & retails for £7.99.
MICABELLA MINERAL EYESHADOW. (1g sample)
This loose mineral eyeshadow from MicaBella Cosmetics is in the shade 'intelligence' and it looks absolutely stunning in this little pot. It's super shimmery and dark enough to add a touch of smokiness but still light enough to not be overly dramatic. I've never heard of MicaBella before but I'm definitely intrigued by the brand because all their products promise to be kind and gentle on the skin. The full size 2.5g shadows retail for £14.95 making this 1g sample worth around £6.
MINERS COSMETICS LIP COLOUR. (Full Size)
Lastly we have another make up product, this time a lipstick from Miners and this is in the shade 'Dreamer'. When I first looked at it in the tube I thought it would be a really unwearable purple pink with a lot of shimmer & although this is definitely on the frosty side, the colour is a much more wearable pink shade than I first thought. I don't think I'm going to love the colour on me, but I'm definitely going to give it a try & see if I can make it work. This is a full size & retails for £3.99.
Overall I really quite like this month's box, it definitely beats the January box for sure just because I know that everything here will get used & it was nice to get a few new make up products to play around with.
