Glossybox March 2013 - City Chic

To be honest I find Glossyboxes a little bit hit and miss.  I know it’s the luck of the draw but I often look at the other items that were available or that other people received in their boxes and wish I’d received some of them in my box.

However, I think this month’s box is my favourite out of all the boxes I have received and I’m really pleased with what was included, no item or box envy this month!
Nail Inc mini nail varnish - I was very excited to receive this because I have been looking for a nail varnish in a dusky rose type shade and this is Bruton Street which is the exact shade I have been lusting after.  Nails Inc do actually sell some mini size varnishes in a limited range of shades and these are £5 each.

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush - I have come across Jelly Pong Pong before but have not tried any of their products.  My current obsession is new lip products and colours, especially bright eye catching colours, so again I am very pleased with this item.  This is full sized and worth £12.

Tresemme Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray - I don’t use hairspray very often, only usually if I have curled my hair or attempted to style it in some way, but the hairspray I have has nearly run out so this will save me having to buy anymore.  The full size product is £4.69 for 500ml and the sample includes 100ml so this is worth just under a £1.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant - I have of course heard of Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream but have never tried it before.  I do have to admit I’m not quite sure what this product actually is!  Is it a moisturiser or is it intended for a slightly different use?  Anyway, the sample is a little bit tiddly but I’m looking forward to trying it.  The sample is 7ml which is worth £3.50.

L’Occitane En Provence Immortelle Precious Cream - I have to admit I’m not a fan of L’Occitane’s award winning hand cream but I’m more than happy to give any of their products a try.  This sample is a third of the size of the full sized product so is worth about £14.

So I am really pleased with this month’s contents and my box is worth around £35 which is a really good amount.  I hope everybody else is happy with the boxes they received this month.
