glossy the 3rd.

I know, I know – I am waaaay behind with this posting but I thought some of you might still like to see what I got. The wonderful March GLOSSYBOXES were delivered more than a week ago but to be honest, I’ve been so busy with work, blog-related meetings and my sister’s visit that I didn’t even get a chance to take a peek inside the box until just now. Of course I already saw some of the other girl’s boxes but it is still exciting and fun to unpack your own and to see which of the products you received.

Even though most of you are probably familiar with the concept of GLOSSYBOX, I’d still like to tell you about a few changes that took place recently: Due to certain circumstances the prices had to be raised. The box now costs 14€ per month + 3,95€ shipping. That adds up to almost 18€ which I think is quite a bit, unless of course you are happy with all the products – then it is a pretty good deal for 5 beauty products! But they have an Easter special going on right now where you can save 5€ which brings you back to 12,95€ for the box. (Simply click HERE and enter ‘glossy_easter’ at check-out to receive the discount.)

Since I just opened the box I can’t tell you too much about it yet. But here is a quick run-down: I love the color of the Artdeco eye-shadow (a pearly nude) and it will definitely be great for every day wear with a bit of eye-liner and mascara. I don’t take many baths, but when I do I always use bath-salt, so the Saint Charles Cosmetics bath-salt will be given a try with the next bath. As most of you know I have super thick hair so I always use some kind of oil after washing it. I’ve already tried the Oil Miracle by Schwarzkopf before and really liked it. A great product-size for travelling!

The Korres Natural Products lemon-basil shower gel smells really fresh and yummy, plus the size is also great for travelling. During the summer I never leave the house without a little sun-protection on my face, which is exactly what the Tiroler Nussöl is. I like that I have sunscreen and lip balm in one and it is small enough to throw into my purse. Since I have super dry skin I’m excited to try the Avéne thermalspray, sounds perfectly refreshing on a hot summer day!! And lastly, the quicky nail file / buffer by Manoa Cristal: I guess I didn’t need another nail file but it is definitely something I’ll use one day.

In total I can say that even though there aren’t any products I am crazy about (like Clinique mascara, Kiehl’s lotion or Kérastase hair oil in the January box) I am still happy with the content. I can make use of every single thing and get to experiment with lots of new brands. I also like the fact that natural products are included since my skin is pretty sensitive and I try to stick to simple products. Did any of you receive a  GLOSSYBOX this month? How did you like the products?

    Meine Box liegt sogar noch bei der Post – hab erst am Freitag meine Schlüssel für das neue Postkastl bekommen …und diesmal lag ein vertrauter gelber Zettel darin – du weißt sicher was ich meine :)

  3. I love these beauty subscriptions! Can’t wait for Glossybox to finally start up in the US. Last time I received a beauty box from another subscription company it had a full-size nail polish I had just bought and used! Was a bit of a let down, although I know they can’t tell what I already have!


  4. Ich finde den Preis mittlerweile schon ganz schön happig und die Produkte in der neuesten Box überzeugen mich auch nicht so richtig, Öl ist gar nix für meine Haut, Thermalspray benutze ich auch nie und ein einfaches Duschgel finde ich ehrlich gesagt einfach nur ‘lame’. Die vorherigen Produkte waren da um weiten besser. Diesmal kommts mir so vor, als sei nur Ramsch drin den sie auch mal loshaben wollten…

      Ich geb dir total recht was den Preis angeht. Wie ich oben auch erwähnt hab: wenn man von den Produkten nicht so wirklich überzeugt ist, dann ist es wirklich viel!! Da würde ich mir lieber um 18€ ein neues Produkte von MAC o.Ä. kaufen. Meine absolute lieblings-Box war bis jetzt die vom Jänner … ich liebe Kiehl’s, Clinique und Kérastase. Also da wärs zB ok mit dem Preis. Dadurch, dass es dieses mal 7 Produkte waren gehts eigentlich auch, das macht ca. 2,50€ pro Produkt.

      Ich bin auf jeden Fall gespannt was in der nächsten Box ist :)

  5. Ja, das stimmt, die Januarbox fand ich toll. Das ist wahrscheinlich auch ein Teil des Konzepts, man lockt Kunden an mit den begehrten Marken wie Kérastase o.Ä. und kann dann auch weniger gefragte Dinge zwischenrein”schummeln”. Kann ja auch sein gutes haben.

    Wie findest du denn den Lidschatten von Artdeco von der Qualität her? Ich habe mir nämlich schon länger mal überlegt mir eine von diesen kleinen Boxen mit Lidschatten zusammenzustellen…
