I am sat at my desk, the postman has just been and I honestly feel like someone is taking the piss.ย  I do not know if I am just ‘on one’ and these boxes are better than I think they are and I am being a cow or they are utter shit.

So what delights are in my February Glossybox?

Well the box is a Valentines theme and is OK, it will add to my shelf collection.

  • L’eau de Rose by Jeanne Arthes – FULL SIZE.ย  I smell like my granny.ย  The RRP is ยฃ20 – AHEM. It does remind me of something but just can’t place it.
  • Noire Eternae Youth Potion Face Scrub – De Bruyere: FULL SIZE This is made from volcanic minerals and has anti-ageing ingredients in it. The RRP is 30Euro (ยฃ25.42)
  • Paint Pot in fade to Greige – Ciate London – FULL SIZE nail polish I have received the Taupe colour and its not really me, I am to pale for it and it is making me look ill. maybe in the summer when I have a bit of colour. the RRP is ยฃ9
  • Beat the Blues in Oyster Gold by MeMeMe – FULL SIZE – this is a gold liquid highlight that isn’t as scary on the skin as it is in the bottle, not sure if I would wear it as I prefer powder highlighters but I will give it a test out.ย  RRP ยฃ7.25
  • Garnier Ultimate Blends Restore balm: the only sample in the box.ย  I have used this before as I received one in My Little Box in January and I liked it.ย  The RRP is ยฃ4.49 for 300ml so this works out about 30p. If my maths is correct.

So in total we got 4 Full size products and one sample with a value of ยฃ61.97

I take it back, although I probably won’t use the perfume and the polish Glossybox has done well.ย  My question then is, why the hell is BirchBox so piss poor with only 2 full size items; a spectrum brush worth ยฃ5.50 and a mask they reckon is ยฃ29 – FUMING.

Well done Glossybox 8/10
