Unboxing - March Glossy Box

It's that time of the month again - It's Glossy Box 'unboxing' time! I just love getting this little box of beauty goodies through the post and while it's tough to beat a binge-shop in Boots, I do love a surprise in the post! Not even the drudge down to the sorting office to pick it up (plus another parcel - but more about that one another day) could spoil it!

This month, inside the corrugated cardboard box was a stylish pale pink box that is definitely going to be kept for storing something or other.

The promise of what's inside was hinted at by this little tinker peeking out from the edge of the box...

Inside the first thing was as always the little magazine - always a pretty decent read - I like to keep it for the bath.

And beneath that, the glossy ribbon and delicate tissue paper wrapping.

Which conceals your first look at the contents within!

First up this month is a delicate smelling body lotion that feels fresh and not at all greasy from a brand I wasn't familiar with - Mitchell and Peach. A nice size sample, but not sure I'll be splashing out the £36 for the full size!

Next is a high-street brand that I am familiar with Sleek. This brand is available in Superdrug, but I'd not seen the Pout Polish before.

It's a nourishing tinted lip balm and mine came in the shade Chocolate Kiss - it has an almondy/shea butter aroma that almost smells like chocolate - or maybe that's a trick of the mind after reading the name!

I like that it comes in a low-profile pot too as it'll be easy to slip in a pocket in my bag for use through the day. It seems nice and moisturising so I'm looking forward to giving this a run through it's paces.

Next is a Bellapierre Shimmer Powder.

It's a nice warm neutral eye shadow that can double up to be mixed with blusher, lip gloss or nail varnish for a custom colour. Nice!

Next is a full size product from Dove and a welcome addition as I love a nice hair treatment! This is an intensive mask and I can't wait to give it a go. Products with keratin always seems to suit me so this is a good one for me. And being Dove it one that's nice and affordable to re-visit if I get on well with it.

Last up are a couple of Juicy Couture perfume samples from the Malibu Collection - not a brand I tend to reach for, but these are actually fresh and fruity and I think they will be nice for the summer.

I hope you've enjoyed this peek inside this month's Glossy Box. What's your latest beauty purchase?
