Glossybox March 2014 Beauty Blossom Edition - Review

We are at that time of month again when the postman knocks on the door and presents me with the latest Glossybox. After the great box that was sent last month I was keeping my fingers tightly crossed that this months was just as good. We are back to the usual pretty pink boxes this month and the theme surrounding this box is beauty blossom to get you set for Spring. I read no spoilers this month other than what the Glossybox Facebook page had featured so didn't know what I was going to receive. 

Once I'd opened the beautiful satin ribbon to reveal the contents I can't say I was overly blown away, immediately I noticed sachets in the box, my absolute bugbear (along with perfume vials!), nothing particularly stuck out at me that I was eager to try other than the BellaPierre item but more about that later. 

So what did I get? 

First up is Mitchell and Peach Body Cream (40ml received RRP £36.00 for 180ml) this is a Glossybox premiere and I've never heard of the brand before, I like the look of it and it smells pleasant enough but for £36.00 for a full size item I can definitely say that I wouldn't repurchase this! It does what it says it does though and it's a nice item to receive. One thing that I love about it as that it's fragranced with essential oils from the Mitchells' fifth generation farm in Kent, England I think that's a really nice touch.

Next we have Dove Hair Therapy Intensive 60 Second Treatment Shot (full size received RRP £1.49 for 15ml) , always handy to have and my hair is always in need of some TLC and extra moisture so this was well received. 

Third item in this months box is without a doubt the worst, two 3ml sachets of Vita Liberata pHenomanal 2-3 Week Tan Lotion (RRP £37.50 for 150ml) why, why, why does Glossybox still continue to send sachets out?! Especially things like fake tan where the amount within the sachets would barely cover my foot let alone one leg it just seems a pointless item to include and they will probably end up in the bin if I'm honest, the biggest disappointment in this months box. 

Fourth item is Sleek Makeup Pout Polish in Chocolate Kiss (full size 10g received RRP £4.49) I like Sleek products and I like lip products so was pleased to receive this, initially wasn't keen on the colour as I don't really wear browny shades but once I'd trialled it a couple of times using just a slick provides a nice nude sheen which I quite like and it also almost smells like chocolate so another bonus for me! 

Last but not least is my favourite item in this months beauty blossom box, Bellapierre Cosmetics Ltd Shimmer Powder in De Ja Vous (full size 2.35g received RRP £12.99) I liked the previous Bellapierre items we've been sent but this has to be my favourite to date, it is absolutely gorgeous and versatile too. I've been using it as an eyeshadow but you can also mix it into blusher, lip gloss or even nail varnish to create different effects. The colour I received is a blush pink and it is beautiful, I am a massive fan of shimmer pots and this is a great addition to my collection. 

Overall a mediocre box this month, to be fair I loved last months alot so it would have taken alot to beat it, I really wish that they wouldn't send sachets though! I get the impression that there is more thought and research going into the boxes and I think that's what needs to happen to keep the subscribers and prevent them from cancelling.

I look forward to seeing what we are sent in April! Did anyone receive anything different?
