Glossybox is a beauty subscription box, and each month, a box with a few beauty and skin-care sample items arrives in the post. Sometimes full size items are included, and this month's box had two full-size products. These were a Burt's Bees Lip Shine (gloss) and a Lollipops brand eye pencil. Every subscriber got each of these items in their box, along with extra samples.
My box arrived early last week, and I received the following items:
Lollipops Make Up Eye Pencil (in black): This black eye pencil is easy to blend, and I really enjoyed using this product. The product is inside a plastic casing, so no pencil sharpener is required. The product blended well and it has become by favourite eye pencil. I would purchase it again.
Burt's Bees Lip Shine (in Smooch): This berry shade is perfect, and when I saw the spoiler a few weeks ago that each subscriber would get one of these lip shines in a different colour, I hoped for this berry shade. This is another great product, and it kept my lips hydrated. It was also not too sticky. I would purchase this product.
H2O+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment: This gel is to be massaged onto the face as a mask, and it is meant to reduce fine lines. Luckily, I do not have fine lines yet, so I cannot see if it does what it claims. However, the product does not feel greasy and is absorbed into the skin. I also tried putting it into the fridge to cool it, as directed, and this cooling felt nice on my skin.
MONU Skincare refining capri facial oil: This product claims to decongest pores to prevent acne. I've been using it for a few days now, and it does leave my skin feeling hydrated and perhaps cleaner.
OGX Argan Oil Shampoo: Subscribers either received this in shampoo or conditioner, and I received the shampoo. Argan oil seems to be used in many beauty products these days; I saw the Argan nuts and trees on a visit to Morocco a few years ago and the oil is used to make spreads and dipping sauces as well as used to aid the body's skin and hair. This product smelled nice, but I was not overwhelmed. Also, it left my hair looking shiny but greasy (in my opinion).
