Unboxing: Glossybox Valentines Day Edit (Love Is In The Air) #BeautySoulmate

Hi everyone! So it's that time of the year again and pretty much everything is either pink or red, yeah, Valentines Day is once again upon us. Glossybox has, of course, brought out a special edition box filled with some gorgeous goodies.

I utterly adore the design on the packaging, I would say it's almost Parisian in it's chic simplicity. The watercolour heart balloons, are in two shades of pink but they're not obnoxious or too bold. I can't quite decide whether or not I prefer this special edition box or the Rose Gold Edit design. I love rose gold so it's a tough decision!

I'm not going to type this one up in bullet points like I usually do because I have more photos to share but I'll still fill you all in on the details!

The Wilkinson Sword Hydro Silk Razor was a product that I already knew about, I actually buy this one because it has moisturising properties so it leaves the skin smooth and soft. Another thing I quite like about this razor is the price, it's only £9.99 so it's a very reasonable price.

The Vintage Company Floral Slanted Tweezers are cute, handy to keep in a makeup bag and precise because of the slanted edge. I'm looking forward to shaping my brows again so these are perfect. They only cost £8 so they're worth the price, a good pair of tweezers can last for months without being blunted. 

The design on the tweezers is reminiscent of some of Cath Kidston's floral patterns. I love the vintage look and a lot of tweezers are quite plain so these will make a nice addition to my bag!

The Naobay Hair Mask is £10.64 and since this one is luxury size it's well worth it. I love a good hair mask, I've been attempting to grow out this pixie cut for so long and little hair treats like this one really improve the quality of my hair.

I feel like out of all the products in the box that this one is my #beautysoulmate. It's the product that I appreciate the most because even before my hair was ruined with dye I had quite thick and coarse hair. It can be unmanageable despite the short length and with all of the extra TLC it's starting to grow in quite healthily.

Moving onto the makeup part of this month's Glossybox, the MUA PowerPout Glaze Low Voltage Gloss comes in at £3.50 which is the standard sort of price for the MUA brand. I like that it's subtle and and not as bold and thick as the packaging would suggest.

The Nicka K New York 24H Waterproof Eyeliner costs only £3.99 at retail price and whilst I don't wear eyeliner a whole lot, I can appreciate the smokey effect that can easily be created with a but of smudging. I like that this one isn't too dark so I could wear it for multiple occasions and not feel like I've overdone it.

So there you have it, that's the contents of this month's Glossybox. Let me know in the comments if you like any of the featured products in the comments, I'd love to know a bit about what everyone else thinks.

My next post should be about the two Radioactive Unicorn nail polishes I ordered last week when they launched their Pastel Goth range. I bought two gorgeous blue shades, y'know, just incase you were curious. Thanks for reading, I hope you've found this post useful in your search for a beauty subscription box!

  1. I stopped getting the glossybox as I didn't think it was great value, but there are some great products in that one - and a lot of full-sized ones, too! Maybe I'll reconsider....

    1. I think that sometimes they hit it just right and others it can be a disappointment, I'm quite pleased with this one though. :) xx

    1. Me too! It looks great on! Don't judge this one by a swatch though!
