First Thoughts: March Glossybox

by ,

I’m a bit late to the party with the March Glossybox (I blame Paddy’s Day!) but I’ve finally showed up, a little worse for wear.

If you too drowned the shamrock this St Patrick’s weekend, then perhaps you’re in need of a little skin prep. Well you’re in luck as March’s Glossybox is all about hydration and preparation. Let’s dive in and see what’s on offer this month.

4-glossy

Schwarzkopf BlondeMe Keratin Restore Shampoo, €14.99 (full size)
First up this month is a shampoo for blondes (boo-hiss!) but on closer inspection of the label, it turns out anyone can use it. The keratin helps repair damaged hair and happily it’s sulphate-free. I should also add it smells amazing, like old-school candy. All in all, a good start.

ThisWorks In Transit Camera Close-up Primer, €34.99 (for the full size)
I can forgive ThisWorks the daft name for this primer as it’s actually a good one. Essentially it’s a pimped-up moisturiser but it absorbs really well. I’d have liked this one in full size, however. FYI Glossybox.

oOlution Eye Love, €34.99 (full size)
Another brand with a daft name, I have never heard of oOlution before. The eye contour is 100 per cent natural (so sadly no scent), is lightweight and quickly absorbed. A handy little eye cream, even if the name is impossible to type or remember.

Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow Hand Therapy (full size)
I seem to be acquiring quite the collection of Crabtree & Evelyn hand creams. Always handy at the bottom of your handbag, this one has a fresh scent and does moisturise hands, as advertised.

Glossy-sleek-blog

Sleek Eye & Cheek Palette, €11.99
Finally my favourite addition to the March box is this handy eye and cheek palette. I’m a fan of Sleek anyway, so this was a nice surprise. These palettes are a brilliant idea for travelling. The eyeshadows and cheek colours are neutral, flattering and have a decent pigment. The best of the bunch.
