I am by no means an expert when it comes to beauty but when the sweet girls over at GLOSSYBOX Beauty asked me if I wanted to test the GlossyBox for January I couldn’t resist. First of all, I love surprises (the GlossyBox contains 5 surprise beauty products every month) and secondly, who can resist something that comes wrapped in pink??
When I finally received mine yesterday I couldn’t wait to see what was inside. And boy am I happy with the goodies!!! I am pretty loyal when it comes to my favorite beauty brands so I was extremely excited when 3 of those were inside the box.
– The Clinique mascara has been part of my beauty routine for years (included in my first beauty post ever) and I actually love that it isn’t the full-size version, since this one fits into my purse perfectly.
– If you guys have been reading this blog for a while, you know I adore Kiehl’s lip balm (see my favorites HERE). Recently I purchased their super smoothing argan hair shampoo and conditioner – works great and is the first shampoo I own that doesn’t contain any silicones. So naturally I have high expectations for the moisturizer included in the box.
– Before I started using the Kiehl’s shampoo and conditioner I used Kerastase religiously for the past 3 years. It is still my favorite shampoo ever!! (But I am giving Kiehl’s a chance to prove me wrong). As most of you know, I am a big fan of Moroccan Oil for my hair (see my hair routine HERE). I had never thought of using a different oil but since I have had such good experiences with Kerastase I am happy to try this one. I think the 50ml bottle is a very generous size – it should last a while. The Moroccan Oil bottle is 100ml and I’ve had it since April.
– As far as the other 2 products (Janssen Cosmeceutical lip balm & Styx Naturcosmetic body lotion) go: I am happy with the lip balm because I am such an addict when it comes to lip balm. And the body lotion smells fresh like oranges but is nothing I necessarily needed.
Overall there are 3 products I love, 1 I am happy about and 1 that I didn’t need – plus I now own a bright pink box that will be perfect for storing jewelry ♥
