Super Skinny Relaxing Balm

As normal this is just a post showing you what I recieved in this months glossybox not an actual review as I haven't had a proper chance to try them out.
1. Duwop Venom Gloss 'Buttercup'

Glossybox says-
"Combining subtle tinted lip gloss with DuWop's Lip Venom to create Venom Gloss"
First Thoughts-
I'm guessing its called 'Venom Gloss' because it causes a tingling sensation on the lips meaning its probably a lip 
pumping product and is quite nice and refreshing actually compared to other ones I've tried (yes I'm talking about you Soap&Glory 'Sexy MotherPucker') its sort of minty but doesn't have a very nice smell. I've only tried this once but its a lovely peachy nude colour which I like and has a really nice glossy finish without being sticky.

2. BM Beauty Pure Mineral Eyeshadow 'Storm Cloud'
Glossybox says-
"Award winning pure mineral eyeshadow. Cruelty free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans."
First Thoughts-

I'm not one for wearing much eyeshadow there's just a few I reach for on special occasion's and that's it really because I feel like it doesn't really suit me or do anything to improve the look of my eyes. This colour is lovely but I haven't had chance to swatch it yet, this is the first product I have received from Glossybox that I probably won't be using and will give to my mom unfortunately. 

3. Dr Bronner Magic Liquid Soap
Glossybox says-
"A combination of organic extra virgin coconut, olive jojoba and hemp oils, together with pure essential oils."

First Thoughts-
The fact that we have received quite a few shower gels in previous boxes is a bit annoying as this is about my 4th one, I feel like shower gels aren't very exciting or that beauty related. There the sort of thing that I would buy myself easily for £1 and not be bother about to much with the exception of the Rituals one which is high end and a bit more glamours the fact that this is a £1.99 standard shower gel doesn't excite me and I'm quite disappointed in this product plus it has no scent.

4. Como Shambhala Invigorate Body Lotion
Glossybox says-
"A revitalizing blend of essential oils that puts you in a perfectly uplifted mood."
First Thoughts-
The same with this we had received so many body lotions and its just a bit boring really. I don't see how it can be uplifting without a scent but I haven't tried it yet so I'll have to see when I have had a proper use.

5. Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Relaxing Balm

Glossybox says-
"Intense hydrating treatment for your hair."
First Thoughts-
This is my favorite product from this box and the only one I have really used its basically a serum for curly/wavy hair. You just apply it you your damp hair and its supposed to be moisturizing and give the curls a nice bonce, and shorten drying time and it really does, a lot!

Overall the February box is probably my least favorite so far :-( feel bad that, that's how I feel but its true there's no point in lying I just don't feel like there's been as much effort put into this box as previous ones even though there probably has. The facts that the last few have been special addition is probably the reason because it couldn't get much better than that. Anyway I'm sure next months box will be much better.

  1. I got this box too, and I quite liked it. My least favourite was the November box which was full of boring bathsalts and shower gel. Agree with you about the shower gel thing though xx

  2. I love your blog! I followed! I would love it if you could check out my blog and follow me? Thanks so much!
