I know I’m supposed to at least try the products out a little bit before I blog about them but I picked up my GlossyBox today and am pretty outraged so would like to post about it right away.
My box contained -
Alessandro yellow nail varnish
A small pot but it looks fairly decent. I have a Barry M yellow varnish so it’d be nice to compare the two.
Cartier Baiser Vole perfume
Initial tests show that it smells fairly decent. I might wear this to work tomorrow – it’s a very ‘me’ smell… florally and girly.
Iobella face cloth
A very small, soft face cloth. I couldn’t understand the German in the instructions but luckily someone else had blogged about it and so Chrome translated their post! You just add water and wash your face with it, apparently. I’ll give it a go tomorrow night.
Kryolan Satin Powder eye dust
Looks to be a pretty colour. I’ve never heard of the brand before – sounds like a mad scientist’s name…
… And finally, the offending product…
Tiroler Nut Oil sunblock
In SPF6. 6!!! Who in the halibut uses SPF 6 these days?! I am almost certain that I filled in a questionnaire when I joined this – they should know that I have very fair skin. Even if I didn’t have very fair skin, using SPF 6 in an oil is just asking for skin cancer!! They should be ashamed of themselves – they ought to be promoting safer, healthier beauty. Not making us fry to a crisp. Am I missing something? Is this a German thing?
I opened this tonight in the cinema before Sneak Preview to show my friends how great GlossyBox is. I wish I hadn’t as it was embarrassing. I can’t even tell which is the full sized item here. And that nut oil…
Last month’s GlossyBox was really great – I loved the shampoo and conditioner in it. But this month’s makes me question whether I want to spend out money on this. I really hope this isn’t the way they do things round here…
