This post comes a bit late, I know! I received my February Glossybox on March the 3rd and I've had the time to do some photos at it today. After January's fuschia packaging, they're back to their classic pale pink - which, by the way, I like better :)
The thing I was interested the most from this Glossybox was this Murad Skin Perfecting Primer, which claims to "create a smooth radiant canvas while minimizing the appearance of pores". Well, I didn't have the chance to tell if it works, because it's just too dark for my skintone and it makes my face looks orange. It's a pity because I had heard so many good things about this product and I'm really interested in trying anything that's supposed to make my skin look better, and now I can't use this because of its colour! Big disappointment. I suppose they have to put something that works for the majority of people in the Glossybox though, so I can't complain. I guess I'll just give it away to somebody. If you're interested in swapping, just tell me ;)
The three products in the photos below are the ones that disappointed me the most and they were the reason why I didn't like this Glossybox. They are very small samples of a shampoo, soap bar and body lotion from an Italian brand called Prima Spremitura. They have such a strong olive oil scent - well, I suppose there's some strange olive oil extract in them, so that's why they smell so much. At first I didn't like their scent at all, but then I kinda got used to it! Anyway, I was very disappointed by these products because they are the same size as the samples you usually find in hotels and that you never use. What's the use of a soap bar in a Glossybox?! I'll probably give the shampoo a try, but the body lotion and the soap bar are of no use to me. I'll add them to my endless collection of samples that I never have the chance to try.
The last one was probably the nicest item in the box. It's a full size Neve Cosmetics Pastello eyeliner in taupe. I don't really use eye pencils because I'm not fond of how they look on me, however there's tons of different ways I could use this. The shade is really particular, it's not a boring black or brown, it's half way between a dark brown and grey. I was pleased to receive this because I've heard good things about Neve Cosmetics and their natural products and I don't really have the chance to try them except if I buy them online!
The day after I received this Glossybox, I unsubscribed. Or at least I thought I had. The day after that, I received a mail from Glossybox telling me the payment for the March box had been successful! I mailed them and they told me I had to get a confirmation email when I unsubscribed. I hadn't gotten that email, so I unsubscribed again and finally got the confirmation email. So basically: they cheated. I'm not going to ask for a refund, but this bothered me to no end.
