UNBOXING- September Glossybox!

Hey there folks, as predicted my Glossybox arrived this morning, and while I've not tried any of the products yet- I'm not overly impressed. Let's have a look inside..

The box is sponsored (I think) by Karen Millen, possibly for London Fashion Week- but that's just a guess, because the cover of the box is a beautiful monochrome watercolour type pictures of the London skyline. In terms of first impressions, this looked good. 

However upon opening, I thought it seemed like a lot of skincare type products- which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but they also looked suspiciously small, which is definitely a bad thing!

 SkinPep Enzyme and Acid Peel/Peeling Gel 
Peeling Gel
Glossybox says; This highly effective peeling gel uses Pineapple and Papaya extracts to create gently exfoliated, soft and bright skin. (£3.05 for 3.5ml- comes with 2 sachets)
I say; Wow. That's expensive stuff. It's £89.99 for 180ml
Eye Cream
This powerful dark circle eraser uses anti-oxidant ingredients to boost collagen in the delicate undereye area. (£6.49 for 2ml)
I say; Again. Woah. This had better give me the best under eyes the world has ever, ever seen.

Vichy Normaderm Night Detox and Hyrating Care
Night Detox
Glossybox says; Skin looks purified, balances excess serum production. (roughly £1.20 for 3ml)
I say; honestly, what's the point? The full size products are hardly extravagant and the price is nowhere near high enough to justify such a tiny size.
Hydrating Care
Glossybox says; Blemishes appear reduced, complexion looks radiant. (about 70p worth of product.)
I say; bleurgh.

L'Oreal Professional Mythic Masque
Glossybox says; This masque is designed to intensely nourish and replenish the hair, for an effortlessly glossy-looking result. (roughly £6 worth of product)
I say; I've tried this before and loved it, so I'm glad to have it back- as far as hair masks go, this is perfectly decent!

 Nails Inc Westminster Bridge Matte Top Coat
Glossybox says; This matte effect top coat gives you two very different looks for every one of your nail polishes. The perfect way to add a unique twist to your favourite shades. (£12)
I say; I've been meaning to pick up a matte top coat for ages so in a relatively poor box, this really stands out as a great product! I love Nails Inc too!

ModelCo MORE BROWS Fibre Gel
Glossybox says; This innovative brush-on fibre gel gives the appearance of fuller, thicker brows instantly. (£14.95)
I say; this looks extremely similar to the Benefit Gimme Brow, so I'm excited to try it, I have crazy brows so if this proves to be a miracle product you guys will be the first to know!

Box Value; £43.45 (roughly)
Box Cost; £13.95 (£10+P+P)
Saving; roughly £30 

There you have it, this months Glossybox. I'm a little disappointed, although the items certainly aren't cheap so the saving is still brilliant. And as my sister said, if all else fails, it is  very very pretty box!
