Glossybox turns 1!

It is exciting how the little beauty-in-a-box phenomenon that took over the blogosphere by storm last Summer has finally turned one.

Yes I know we had had our peaks and downfalls with Glossybox but love it or hate it, it's something that doesn't fail to capture attention and stir controversy.

Of course the first box was spectacular, their seasonal boxes impressed and definitely made a cute present, plus there is always an occasional winner hidden randomly between months.

I have taken inspiration from the brand and love to recycle their boxes and fill it with goodies when giving presents. The anticipation of what's there in a mysterious box never fails. Not sure if the boxes to come in the future will be just as good or even better but I have to congratulate the company for making the concept popular in the UK.

Here's a little glimpse of their Anniversary box this month. The fancy tissue wrapping has left us all drooling.



Eldora lashes were my favourite years ago when I first tried them. They are cheap as chips and available in such beautiful variety that you have to check them out if you haven't. I know some of you have received the jewelled eye lashes and I totally agree that I wouldn't know what to do with them.

New things I discovered and liked were the Apivita Cucumber Face Mask and the Lolita Lempicka Fragrances. I am looking for a bargain for these on Cheapsmells whilst writing this post, so you see it always help me discover  more brands.

I do however feel that considering all the hype that the brand used to create around the Anniversary box, it could have had more full sized products and exciting brands.

Glossybox are giving away tonnes of goodies on their Facebook page this month to celebrate the occasion so don't forget to 'like' and participate.
