February Glossybox

Continue reading for reviews and swatches of this month's Glossybox :)

Dr. Bronner Magic Liquid Soap in Rose

1. Dr. Bronner Magic Liquid Soap in Rose
Prior to getting this sample/travel size liquid soap, I actually have a bigger size of the same scent that I use for cleaning my makeup brushes. It contains a combination of extra virgin coconut, olive, jojoba and hemp oils so it helps to deeply cleanse and condition my brushes. I've yet to use it as a shower gel so I can't really comment on that.

Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Relaxing Balm

2. Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Relaxing Balm
A smoothing balm that provides your hair with hydration and helps to reduce frizz. It contains heat protectant so it's heat tools friendly!

Duwop Venom Gloss in Buttercup

3. Duwop Venom Gloss in Buttercup
A nude with gold shimmer lip gloss, the venom gives a slight tingling sensation that last for several minutes. According to the Duwop website, the gloss is made from:

"Blending that same spicy concoction of cinnamon, wintergreen and ginger with skin softening ingredients like jojoba, avocado and sunflower oil, beeswax for protection, and green tea for soothing."

I don't find that it makes my lips any bigger (like some other lip plumping glosses but then again my lips are pretty big already) but it's not too sticky, is a very lovely colour and smells very nice!

Como Shambhala Invigorate Body Lotion

4. Como Shambhala Invigorate Body Lotion
Contains eucalyptus, geranium, lavender and peppermint...and boy does it smell exactly like all of them put together! Absorbs very fast and doesn't feel greasy.

BM Beauty Pure Mineral Eyeshadow in Platinum Tiara

5. BM Beauty Pure Mineral Eyeshadow in Platinum Tiara
This is my first ever mineral eyeshadow! I personally find them a bit too messy (I can totally forsee myself spilling everything in this little container!), so I try to avoid them. But I love getting makeup related products in beauty boxes so I can't really complain. It's a lovely shimmery satin-finish silvery taupe that will go quite well with a smokey eye.

Overall, gotta be honest I was a bit underwhelmed by this month's box. Nothing really excited me I guess... What did you get in your Glossybox? Did you like them?


  1. great blog honey!!

  2. I got the impress nails. I quite liked my box, I do prefer Carmine though. Fab blog, new follower :) Hopefully if you like my blog you can follow me too.


    1. Just seen your post! I like the pink shadow and the nails are quite cool. I've never got Carmine but just signed up for Jolie box so should be getting that soon.
      Thanks, followed :)
