A Box full of Gloss...

So you've seen about a million of blogposts about the Glossybox haven't you? Have you seen one from someone who has used the products - or just seen lots of pictures of the box in various states of undress? :)
What's a GlossyBox?
The GlossyBox will be sent out monthly. In addition to high-end luxury product miniatures, the box contains product information, application notes and tips and tricks about beauty and style. Our GlossyBlog publishes interesting features on a regular basis. Our product selection is original and innovative. You can try them out in the comfort of your own home. GlossyBox enables you to try out the luxury product miniatures in your own time without the annoying interruption of sales pitches. If a product has caught your attention you can easily learn more about if from our website. If you would like to buy the product, we can direct you to an online supplier. You can also choose to provide us with product feedback, which enables us to improve and adjust the content of your next box to better suit your individual needs. You receive a GlossyDot for each completed feedback sheet. With 20 GlossyDots the next box is free.
Weleda - Pomegranate Regenerating Body Oil (£19.95)
This is amazing. I would never have thought of buying it but I'm so glad I've been able to try this. The smell is beautiful and it leaves your skin feeling gorgeous. Like you've had a massage at a fancy spa. I would definitely buy this again, and for the price I feel it's well worth it. A little goes a long way.

Ciate - Nail Enamel (£9)
I've tried Ciate nail enamel before, and I found it ok, nothing really amazing. The colour I received was Cabaret (I think!) and the application was good, it stayed chip free for a good few days. However I found Barry M to be just as hard wearing and better value wise.

Etat Libre - Eau de Parfum (£74)
Really lovely fragrance. Fresh and crisp and I would definitely look out for this again, the price is very daunting though. The sample size was perfect for tucking in my handbag for parties.

Illamasqua - Pure Pigment (£15.50)
Again I was very impressed with this product. As a newbie to Illamasqua I found the pure pigment beautiful on my eyes, and I've since worn it a few times and had compliments each time. This is an all rounder and can be mixed with other products or worn on it's own. Personally I've worn it on it's own.

Blink + Go - Ultimate effect strip Lashes (£8.95)

Sadly disappointed with these, the glue was shockingly bad and the lashes just didn't want to sit correctly. It's a shame as I love a false eyelash. I had Temptress lashes, so I can't comment on the others in the range. I'm very glad I've not paid £8.95 for them as I would have been very disappointed.

So, the products you get, would you repurchase? Some I would and it's great to have a "taster" of something I would never have thought of buying.Value for money wise I think GlossyBox are onto a winner, as it's an easy way to give new products a go. I think this would make a great gift for a friend, or for yourself, you might find something you like. At £12.95 a month it's definitely worth giving a go. The latest box has been arriving on doorsteps, and the tweets have been positive so if you want to give it a go, subscribe now.
Are you a GlossyBox fan? What are your thoughts on the idea behind the box?
