Glossybox March 2016 - Review

So after the love box back in Feb we resume normal business with Glossybox this month. The contents in this box are set to give us back our glow and head into (we hope) warmer months with a spring in our step. First impressions of this months box are great, a lovely mix of items and I spy a brush which I am so in need of at the moment. 

I love the look of this angled brush, pretty in pink and perfect for applying bronzer or highlighter. Luxie Rose Gold Large Angled Face Brush 504 (RRP £10.42), I have already used this several times and am impressed it's ever so soft and picks up a lovely amount of product, my favourite item in this months box. 

The 2nd item is Collection Speedy Highlighter (RRP £3.99), the brand always reminds me of my teenage years......although it is much nicer these days! If you read my blog you will know I love a highlighter, I've used so many and tend to stick to my fave's (think Bobbi Brown, Mac etc). I like this however, it's chunky, gives a nice sheen and is good for day to day use but it is hard to apply and blend, if you tend to apply your highlighter last as I do it kind of feels like you are almost taking your base makeup off as you have to apply it quite firmly and then blend it in. Other than that it's a pretty good item!

The next products are by a brand I'm not familiar with, Catharsis Vitamin Mineral Shampoo & Conditioner (RRP for full size £16.89 each), designed to leave your hair gleaming, soft and hydrated I am yet to use these as they are sample sizes they will be perfect to take away on holiday! 

The next product is another brand I'm new too. Hey Honey Good Morning Honey Silk Facial Serum (£28.81 RRP for full size), this contains both honey and propolis 2 of nature's potent antibacterial agents. I'm well aware that honey has so many uses and health benefits so I am keen to give this a go and see the results!

The last item is an Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Cream (RRP for full size £29.99), quite a hefty price tag for a full size Olay product......however this cream claims to hydrate, exfoliate and smooth the skin leaving a healthy and glowing complexion. I'm yet to give it a go so can't comment on the efficacy of it but I'm intrigued to see if it compares to some of my other products. 

I really like this months box, another nice mix of products and I really like all of them. The brush is definitely my favourite out of this months box, it'll be well used I'm sure! 

What do you think of the contents in this months box?
