October GlossyBox

A new month means a new Glossybox!

This month it was the "Dark Romance" box, obviously in keeping with Halloween! 
Honestly after last months box (here) I was slightly disappointed this month :( Mostly because it wasn't very 'dark' at all! If your going to have a theme then stick with it! 

Anyways, I was still very excited to see the postman at my door with my beautifully packaged gifts (the box was pink - again not dark?!), and here is what I got :

Premar Moisturising Smoothie Serum - 20ml
RRP £22.50 for 50ml
This is an allergen free skin prep serum, for use before your moisturiser. 
It is intended to "soothe redness and hydrate the skin, whilst keeping it matte and shine free".

Unicameral Kiss It Better Cream 
RRP £12.95 for 50ml
To "calm, hydrate & protect extremely sensitive and inflamed skin". 

Monu Illuminating Primer - 20ml
RRP £24.95 for 50ml
Probably my favourite item in this months box - always on the look out for a good illuminating primer!
To be used alone or under foundation for a "flawless, illuminating finish" with SPF 15

Vita Liberata Latte Illuminating Skin Finish - 2x 3ml
RRP €29.95 for 30ml
This adds a "flawless medium bronzing to the skin".. But I don't see how 6ml is going to cover a whole lot?!

MeMeMe Cherub's Blush - Lip & Cheek Tint - 12ml
RRP £5.50 for 12ml
The only full sized product in the box this month, very similar to Benefits BeneTint - a lovely red liquid tint. I will probably only use this on the lips as with liquid tints I always find them difficult to blend out in time - leaving me looking like Bosco! 

So, that's it! As I said I am quite disappointed with this months box, I was looking forward to some nice dark beauty products - illuminators and skin serums don't exactly fit the brief! 
Still though a lovely box and some nice products I probably never would have bought myself - which is why I signed up in the first place! 

Did you get this months Glossybox?

  1. Like you, I was disappointed with this box. In fact I was SO disappointed that I've decided not to renew my subscription when it runs out. For me the quality is just too inconsistent. Xx


    1. This is only my second box so I'm holding out for now.. Although none of this stuff has been used but the primer :(

  2. I was also really disappointed :( I'm going to give it until Christmas and if they haven't gotten any better I will cancel in January :/
