Glossybox March 2015 - Review

It's Glossybox time of month again and this box is all about stepping into Spring, with some (hopefully) warmer weather just around the corner this box promised to be filled with items to start the season afresh with. 

First impressions, not a bad box, a couple of brands I don't recognise and a few that are well known, overall it seemed like a decent box. 

What did I receive this month?

First item, Naobay Moisturising Peeling (full size 100ml received RRP £13.71) this is a brand I've not heard of before, I really like the packaging, the wooden top is very cute and gives the impression of a natural product. This is designed to remove dead skin cells and revitalise and brighten the complexion. Anything to help banish dull skin and I'm willing to give it a go! 

Next up one of my favourite high street brands, Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm in Berry Sheer Tint (full size received RRP £4.49) I really do love a Carmex item, I prefer non tinted but never the less this will get used very quickly. It has the usual Carmex tingle when applied and keeps my lips moisturised so a nice item to receive.

The next item is...... yep you guessed it another mascara! I only just received a mascara in the February box (read about that here) so I'm a little confused and slightly disappointed that they would send yet another mascara. That being said the packaging of this brand is really nice and it seems a decent product so it at least won't be wasted, Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara (full size received RRP £3.30).

Fourth item is a rather pretty spring shade nail polish (ncLA Nail Lacquer in shade Santa Monica Shore Thing full size received RRP £13.00) , another brand I'm not familiar with but a nice item, I like the colour but I'm not too sure I would pay the RRP for it when my favourite brands like  Nails Inc and Ciate are around the same price bracket. I shall add it to the collection though!

Finally, the last two items are from the Dove Advanced Hair Series (Youthful Vitality Shampoo & Conditioner 50ml received, RRP for full size 250ml £5.99), great little items to receive I shall save these for our holidays in June instead of taking larger sizes. 

I actually don't think this is a bad box to receive it all the only thing that lets it down is receiving yet another mascara, I'm sure something else could have been chosen instead. That being said I'm sure that everything in this box will get me Spring ready.

Next months box is taking inspiration from a golden era which sounds intriguing so I'm interested to know what will be sent in April. 

What do you think of the items received this month? Any good?

Glossybox is a monthly subscription box costing £10.00 + p&p, for more information please click here.


  1. I definitely like the sound of the carmex product, and you have reminded me I need to add travel shampoo and conditioner on my holiday list :)

    These boxes are a great way to get introduced to new products.

    1. The Carmex is great, I have so many of them lying around! X

  2. Ooooo I do love a good subscription box, I always see nice things in these Glossybox's the mascara looks so nice, love mascara.
    See I would be happy if they sent me a whole box of mascara's LOL but I'm pretty sure it must be annoying if you don't need/love them and you received on last month... makes no sense. They need to be a bit more original seems.
    Thanks for sharing hun

    1. Me too hehe :-) Generally Glossybox is pretty good, I don't think they put as much thought into the boxes as they used to but they are still great to receive every month. Thanks for the comment X

  3. I get the You Beauty Box and I got those little Dove hair products in mine last month :)

    1. Ahh yes I've heard of the You Beauty boxes, they're supposed to be good too :-) Hope the Dove items you received were good! x

  4. I received this months box also! I was really happy with what i received this time and its my second box! How long have you been with Glossybox for?

    1. I've probably been subscribing for well over a year now, it's sometimes a bit hit or miss, you should also check out 'My Little Box' I love that one too, you can read my reviews for that under the beauty label on here. X
