Everyone has been talking about it, but just in case you have been living under a rock I thought I would share with you the Glossybox and Harvey Nichols Collaboration- just in time for Christmas.

I haven’t posted about sample beauty boxes as I haven’t seen anything very exciting in a while however I think this box is rather special in comparison. At £30 it’s almost three times the price of a normal beauty box but it is filled (and I mean filled!) with brands we all love and products you might actually use.
The box contains… 

  • Laura Mercier Foundation Primer
  • Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum
  • NARS Mini Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien
  • Rodial Bee Venom Moisturiser
  • Benefit They’re Real Mascara
  • Macadamia Macadamia Oil
  • Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream
  • La Coupe Intensive Hair Repair
  • Harvey Nichols Mini Scented Candle
  • Show Beauty Volume Lotion, Volume Mousse, Finishing Spray, Texture Spray, Dry Shampoo, Thickening Mist, Volumising Mist, Thermal Protect Lotion, Thickening Lotion, Pure Treatment Oil or Hair Fragrance
  • O.P.I Viking Nail Polish or Avoplex Hand Cream
  • Percy & Reed Dry Conditioner

Since Glossy Box have told us exactly what is inside there shouldn’t be any surprised and you should know exactly what you are paying for. I love that includes skincare, haircare, nail care and makeup all in one box. For just £30 you receive £150 worth of products, which is a pretty sweet deal! 

The stand out products for me are the Laura Mercier Primer (which I’m sure I have a sample off from another box), the NARS Satin Lip Pencil, Harvey Nichols Mini Scented Candle and the full size Show beauty products. That said I would have much prefer the OPI Nail Polish that some people got and also a different Show Beauty products… but I guess that’s just the luck of the draw. 

I’m really happy to see GlossyBox offer their subscribers something different, it would make a great Christmas present for any beauty lover, or even as a treat for yourself. Glossybox also offer a three, six or twelve-month subscription starting at £30 (+P&P) which also makes a good present for a beauty lover. 

The Harvey Nicols and Glossybox Box will be able to purchase 17th November from here.

What do you think of the look of this box? 

 It’s been a few months since I’ve blogged about on of the monthly Glossy Boxes and since this one is looking so pretty and festive I thought it was a good chance to talk about it. This month the box is a beautiful pillar box red with a festive makeup tree on the front.

 I was actually quite impressed with this box as there were three full size items from brands I love and trust.
The WilkinsonSword Intuition Naturals Razor took up most of the box but razors are something I always need so was happy to see it in there although now that I have googled it I have found that they aren’t too expensive. There was also a Maybelline Colossal Mascara which is great as I’m not sure I have tried this volume version. I was most excited by the Seche Vite Nail polish as it’s a white one which I find always comes in use particularly for nail art. The other two products were a Beautiful Movements Lip Gloss which is a stunning colour but not so great consistency and a sample of Ying Yang Skin Food.

Another busy week but tomorrow is my last official day of interning which means I will be spending the weeks running up to Christmas just blogging and hopefully making some videos which is so exciting!

Although I say it was busy I only had one super hectic day which was Thursday when I had my day off work. After attending a few press days I joined the lovely girls from The Body Shop to wrap presents at The Kids Company which is an organisation that works with vulnerable Children and young people.

Sadly this year I didn’t volunteer to work Christmas Eve giving food to the homeless like I did last year so I was glad to see the The Body Shop was looking for some volunteers to wrap presents. It was great to see that they weren’t just donating gifts/money but actually taking a whole to wrap gifts and encourage others to do so too. Most us are just so lucky but don’t realise it, it really made me realise that I would love to volunteer a little more in the next year.

I then attend something completely different. The girls over at Glossy Box invited me and a handful of other bloggers to dinner at The Ivy Club to find out about the direction of the monthly subscription box over the next year. I’m very happy to hear that they are staying within beauty and not become a lifestyle box but I’ll share a little more on them throughout the year. As you can imagine the food was great but I may have over eaten (jesus did I over eat!)

I’m hoping the next week will be less boring busy a little more fun so am thinking of vlogging (I am addicted to Vlogmas!) would anyone be interested?

PS. I also uploaded a new video here

What did you get up to this week?

Although I am lucky enough to have the chance to use a lot of different beauty products I still get excited to see what will be in my monthly Glossy Box and I love comparing notes with my friends who have all also subscribed (under my influence!)

I’m very excited to be offering one of my readers a 3 month subscription to GlossyBox starting next year. Its a particularly nice prize as you’ll receive it spread out over 3 months and you’ll only know what’s inside once you have received it.

Since I haven’t spoken about GlossyBox in a little while I thought it would be worth sharing the content of their new September box as well as introducing you to their new beauty subscription. 

 The September box is a Union Jack themed one with 5 tops british products stored inside. I’m not a huge fan of the box itself (Union Jack print has kind of been and gone, no?) but I love the cute tissue paper and think theres some great little products inside. There is a mini Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm for the lips which is a favourite with most people and Eyelure Pre-glued lashes which are really wearable (and not like some of the horrible gold ones I have previously seen in beauty boxes). The other three products are items I have never tried; a Toni & Guy Limited Edition Shine Gloss Serum which is always useful and a Be a…Bombshell liquid eyeliner in Onyx which is super black. I was also super excited to see a HD Brows product but didn’t expect it to be a bronzer, I’m not too sure how a bronzer fits the brows category but I am very excited to try it.

I was particularly excited to receive the new GlossyBox Woman box which is a new addition to the GlossyBox family. I feel that GlossyBox has been looking for something new to add to their brand; they tried the male box and still currently have a MissGlossy box aimed at a younger audience but I’m not too sure there is enough money/interest in these two categories however this 40+ box is able to attract beauty lovers with a little more disposable income. Inside there are 5 products all aimed at an older age group meaning they are anti-aging and more hydrating which means that the subscriber knows they will only get something specific for them. It is a little more expensive however there are some really great products in this box at least as well as a magazine and I can see a woman of 40+ loving every product!

This months box’s edit includes a day and night cream from Lulu’s Timebomb, Redken color extend treatment spray, Comfort Zone Mask and in my opinion the stand out product is the Ole Henriksen serum (which is worth over £20!)

This box comes out every 8 weeks and costs £14 plus £2.95 packaging but I actually think it will be really successful as it appears to be really well thought through and I think it will probably get better reviews then the normal GlossyBox. It would make a perfect gift for a 40+ woman that loves beauty

What do you think of these boxes? What do you think of the new Glossybox Woman subscription?
