Glossy Box Review

I have been eyeing Glossy Box for a while now and I am so happy I finally decided to get it for my birthday! The thing with beauty boxes is, it’s a 50/50 chance you will like the products you get. Been a #woc I am very sceptical of some of the products I will get, especially the makeup shades. Will it be suitable for my skintone? And I am aware they ask you to fill out a beauty profile but do they REALLY take that into account? Etc

Back to Glossy Box, the May Box focused on beauty essentials for travel. I got 5 products and a mini snack too!

Overall thoughts

Do I think it’s worth it? Yes! You get a lot for the price you pay for the box. I believe I got a lot of mini sizes because the box focused on travel but I think Glossy Boxes have at least 1 full size product. Even so the mascara and lippie are full sized products and worth almost £15! I am really happy with the contents too, I have been searching for SPF for my body (atm I use my ultra-sun hand cream which has SPF for my legs and body lol) so the Hawaiian Tropic comes at a very good time, plus it’s been really sunny here in the UK lately. The Revlon mascara is new, and I am happy to have got the full size for so much less! The Velvet lippie feels very nice on and smells nice BUT the shade is totally wrong for my skintone, it’s very chalky on me so I would either use it as a topper of find a good lip liner for it. Ceptaphil cleanser I will definitely use as my new travel cleanser and I have the Bee Good moisturiser in full size although I haven’t started using it yet. All in all I am very happy with my very 1st Glossy Box!

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?) So don’t be a stranger and SUBSCRIBE its free. I make sure I post regularly unless I have had a very stressful week/month. Leave any comments or drop me an email to say hi, I would love to hear from you. If you’re a company/blogger and you’re interested in working with me, believe I want to too! Drop me an email if I don’t get to you first lol (I hope that doesn’t sound creepy) Email- Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day. Love Sarah.
