Glossybox as a Valentine's present?

Hmm I am not sure about that but when I think of the number of times the men I know, have failed to pick a decent and usable present for a women, let alone getting the presentation and packaging correct, this seems like the perfect no-brainer!

This particular box for Valentine's comes is more geared towards Skin Care and Bath & Body as compared to Make-up, which again I feel is playing quite safe when it comes to gifting it to someone as women usually tend to be a lot more picky with Make-up as compared to Skin Care and Toiletries.

It goes without saying that it wins full marks presentation with a matte hot pink box.




These babies won me over as I am a huge fan of Clarins Skin Care but they are over priced to be honest so its always pleasant to find travel sized versions of their moisturisers in a beauty box.




Yes I know a lot of people have a slight grudge with Eyeko due to their sneaky shift from a dusty corner in Superdrug to the glamorous Harrods and all that however I am quite indifferent as I never really 'clicked' with the brand so much besides their super cute Nail Paints, which I would still purchase if they were unique enough.

The Skinny Eyeliner in Green is not so much of a unique colour but if its consistency is just perfect to work with and if you're fond of the colour on your eyes, then you'll love it!


Oh and don't forget to glance at Glossybox for Men as well if your other half likes grooming just as much as you!

I have been really unsure about trying out glossy box as some of the item's in the past have been fail's. But they seem to be getting much better as they progress and i really like the look of the valentines day box.

The green eyeliner still is shimmery enough to use just solo. :)

really helpful post. thankyou.

I think it's a great idea. However if you like to be surprised and not have to tell your partner what to get you I don't know how they are going to know that we want this :( lol

I feel like the number one reason guys always end up getting crappy gifts is because they don't really pay attention and leave everything to the last minute. I'd be happy to get this though it's such a nice and thoughtful gesture :D
