I hope you all have been well and keeping yourselves warm. As the snow hit London, I had the perfect lazy day at home. This week I also received my GlossyBox February. I was so excited with the box over Xmas that I had forgotten that GlossyBox was going to take a break over January.
Anyways, once more the presentation was spot on, the box is amazing in a so very trendy hot pink box.
Inside my box this month, there were a couple of products from Davines, a brand well that I know well, as I have worked in hair salons for many years and therefore I have used some of their products before, but the ones I have received were new to me. They are great organic products, so I was pleased to find them there.
Davines, Cleansing nectar. (travel size)
For some reason I have never been much of a fan of 2 in 1 products. I think something like that would be ideal for a guy but as I am a girl with long hair I just don't think that a body wash can do the job of the shampoo. I have never liked this sort of body wash/shampoo idea, so for this reason I will use as a body wash only. It's smells great though, can't complain about that.
Davines, Moisturizing balm. (travel size)
On the other hand, I don't mind creams or oils that have many uses in one. I believe that this sort of moisturising product can work well everywhere and I can't wait to use this one. It's a hair mask, something that I have been in need for a long time and also can be used as face cleanser or body moisturizer. Once more, I will stick with as hair mask only as I already have a wicked face cleanser which I have recently discovered and it's absolutely amazing.
Murad, Hybrids skin perfecting primer. (sample size)
I haven't used this yet, it's a tiny sample and believe it or not, I have never tried a primer before, so this one should be a good introduction.
FAB, Gentle body wash. (sample size)
I have never heard of this brand before but this body wash has no fragrance or colouring, ideal for anyone with sensitive skin which is not my case. Although sometimes I get patches of dry skin on my tattoo, so I will try it on my arm for sure. It will be interesting to try this as I would not have picked from the shelf myself.
Eyeko, Skinny eyeliner. (full size)
Quite an interesting idea by Eyeko, the eyeliner has a huge handle so you can sharpen the pencil until the end. Great, but not so practical to carry it around as it is huge when it's brand new. I have another eye pencil by Eyeko and I must say the quality is really good and the staying power is fantastic but the colour I received (pale pink) doesn't do much for me, I know I can use it as an 'eye opener' or highlighter but the other colour which some people got (plum), would have been better for me.
Well an interesting choice this month as there are many new products which I have would not have picked myself as I said, but true to it's intention the box brought me something new to try. So, I'm pleased with it, it's something outside the box, indeed.
