Glossy Box Valentines Special 2012

 I was very excited to have the Valentines Special Glossy Box especially as it's hot pink, I always get excited when GlossyBox changed the colour of their boxes for a special occasion.
 The packaging on the inside was also really pretty, I like the cute pink heart and I love that the ribbon is grey and not pink as well.
Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner
This product caught my eye first as it is one of the brands I know the most about from the whole box. Its a full size eyeliner which is one of the products from the re-brand of Eyeko. I got it in the colour Emerald green and it has led me to want to try some more. I will hopefully be able to review a few of them very soon.
Clarins Extra Firming Night Cream & Clarins Extra Firming Day Cream 
These Clarins creams added little value to my Glossy Box as they are aimed at an older audience however some people received a Davines cleanser and moisturiser which I would have been very happy with.
FAB Gentle Body Wash 
I don't often use these little body washes however I think if you travel a lot or stay over at friends houses these are perfect sizes to carry around with you, I am yet to try this one but I do love the packaging.
Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer
I was very happy to see the primer in my box and I tried it straight away, I am going to continue trying it and it is one I would consider buying in full size.

Overall I think that this Glossy Box wasn't quite for me as it was too skin care based, I did love the bright pink box however I still prefer last months box

These boxes would be a perfect little present to receive on Valentines day or even to gift yourself a year worth of boxes, click here for more information.

What do you think of this Valentine Special Glossy Box?

  5. If you want to swap the Clarins items for the Weleda cleanser & toner and Orly nail polish let me know. I am furious that I didn't get the Clarins stuff. :(

  7. This makes me think I really ought to sign up to Glossy Box! I am missing out! I do like the idea of treating myself on Valentine's day, rather than relying on someone else.

  10. This was my first Glossy Box, I got exactly the same as you... bit too skin care based, but all the products are lovely! The Clarins night cream is divine too.

    Must do some make up with the emerald green liner, I only did a quick swatch on my hand. Seems nice.

    The primer is a little dark for my skin tone.
