Glossybox and Love me beauty - February 2014

Being a long term subscriber I had high hopes for both Glossybox and Love me beauty this February. Beauty boxes have been consistently good recently and seeing there's usually a special box for Valentine's day, I was looking forward to seeing what goodies they had in store for us this month:

Giovanni Eco cosmetics ultra moist range
NV chunky eye crayon
Ciate nail polish
Maybelline big eyes mascara
Nougat London sparkling body shimmer

Well I'm pleased to say they didn't disappoint. Starting with Glossybox who have gone for a cheeky romantically themed lipstick print. Now I know it's the products inside that really matters, but the limited edition designs have always been my favourite, and with surprise boxes it never hurts to make a good first impression.

Product wise I think they've done really well too. There's a good mix of haircare, bodycare and make up, with a bar of Lindt chocolate thrown in for good measure too. In the past I've been disappointed with nail colours, but this month they've got it spot on with Ciate play date, a beautiful orange red that'll be perfect whatever the occasion. It's nice to see Maybelline big eyes mascara too, especially as it's such a new product and will no doubt be on many a wishlist thanks to it's extensive advertising campaign.

Percy & Reed dry conditioner
Bakewell soap company multi-purpose pocket balm
La Claree ultra melting body milk 
Art Deco hydra lip booster
Inner me beautify me vitamin complex

For me Love me beauty have always focused more on content rather than design, but it's nice to see them embrace the Valentine's theme too with red tissue paper and a product information card. As always there were a choice of 3 boxes, although this month the 5th product was kept a surprise - I actually really liked the surprise element, and wouldn't mind them doing it for future boxes too.

Of the 5, I was most excited about Art Deco hydra lip booster and Percy & Reed dry conditioner. As you know I love my lipglosses, and this deep red colour couldn't have been more perfect for Valentine's day. The dry conditioner sounds really interesting too. My hair is in desperate need of a haircut at the moment, and I'm hoping this'll help to keep it somewhat smooth and tangle free in between washes.

Overall, 2 really good beauty boxes this month, and I can't wait to see what they've got planned for March 2014!

Are you a beauty box subscriber? What do you think about this month's contents?

    1. Ah glad you liked yours too. Pinky purple sounds lovely but it's a shame you don't like it as much. Make up colours can be so hit and miss with beauty boxes x
