March Glossybox & One year blogiversary!

Yay! It's my one year blogiversary today! I didn't even think i would make it here. Thanks everyone for coming on this journey with me so far! Stay tuned as i will have a giveaway soon. I just have to gather some stuff together and post it =).

Anyway, today i have my March Glossybox to show you! I thought that this would be my last one but i am really happy with what i got this month and i'm going for April's GB too. I'm so glad i didn't get that damn power band/bracelet!
I have been a bit lazy this month. I opened the box took photos and packed it back up until now! I haven't used anything in it yet... but i will. I've just been lazy!

The usual picture of the box it comes in. 

The Contents:
Absolutely Gorgeous - Macadamia Face Cream
Eau Thermale Avene - Gentle Milk Cleanser
KMS California - Free Shape Hot Flex Spray
Kosmea - Hydrating Rosewater Mist
Thin Lizzy - Concealer Creme
3 Gift vouchers for various places (i'm sure have expired by now haha)

Absolutely Gorgeous - Macadamia Face Cream - Normal/Dry Skin 30ml
Create a barrier against moisture loss and slow down ageing with this Macadamia Nut face cream.
I can't smell the Macadamia at all, all i smell is rose/rosehip oil. I guess that would overpower the macadamia. Looking forward to trying it though.

Eau Thermale Avene - Gentle Milk Cleanser - 50ml
Avene's acclaimed Thermal Spring Water, found in these products, proves remarkable at hydrating and refreshing.
This says it's for dry to very dry sensitive skin. I have neither. I have normal skin type. I probably won't try it in a hurry. Reading the instructions, it sounds weird. It's a milk but it says nowhere do you wash it off, you just follow using a toner. hmmmmm!

KMS California - Free Shape Hot Flex Spray - 30ml
Expect your hair to feel soft, silky and with less breakage because this formula protects from heat and styling stressors. 
This is what i am looking forward to using the most. I straighten my hair often and i never used to use a heat protectant. With that said i have a few different kinds of hair treatments for heat styling so i will use those up before trying this.

Kosmea - Hydrating Rosewater Mist - 25ml
Set your makeup or refresh your skin using this face mist made from rose petals.
I'm excited to try this as well! I have received their products in another Glossybox and i was really pleased. I did get some samples from Kosmea and i will be changing over from Jurlique to this stuff when i run out. I will keep this until i'm finished with Jurlique. 

Thin Lizzy - Concealer Creme - 7.5ml
Cover up minor or major skin imperfections for all day coverage with this Concealer Creme.
I don't really wear a lot of makeup and when i do i don't use concealer. That's not to say i don't need it. I just never bothered with it. I should give it a go! haha.

Overall, I am happy with all products that came in this months box except the concealer i couldn't care about but i will give it a go. 
What did you get in your box? Did you get the same or completely different items and are you happy with all your contents?

See you soon guys!

  1. This is what I got
    Apart from Avene and Concealer mine was quite different...and I got that silly power bracelet!
    I have unsubscribed from Glossybox. They will merge with Lust Have It next month so it will be interesting to see what they will deliver.

    1. I'm glad i didn't get the power bracelet! Someone said it smelt nice though haha.
      April will still be GlossyBox but May onwards will be Lust Have It. I'm am interested to see what Lust have it have. I'm in two minds about cancelling now or waiting to see what LHI are like. hmmm.

    2. oh also, have you used the Body shop chocolate thing yet? I wanted to try that but i walked past my local BS and they had a stand out the front with all the chocolate stuff and it smelt kind of weird.. not really chocolate like at all to me.

  2. Congratulations on the blogiversary! How exciting! I've always been tempted to subscribe to one of those monthly boxes but never ever got around to it...

    1. Thanks ev! If you end up subscribing do some research as to which one to sub to. There are a few around and all have their pros and cons. Glossybox will be merging with Lust have it in May so don't bother with Glossybox. =) but i am thinking of cancelling soon as i have some stuff i will never use that i'm trying to get rid of now and some stuff i really like and are just sitting here waiting until i get around to trying them. haha

  3. Congrats on your blogaversary! I got that damned power bracelet. But seing as to how GB sent me the box for review, I guess I can't really complain. Did your box smell really nice when you opened it? It's a weird question but mine smelled sooo damn good but I couldn't locate the source of the smell. I smelled everything in the box and nothing smelled like it! I wish I got the concealer. I don't know what to do with the milk cleanser because I've got acne-prone skin. Wait, I got the Proactiv bar. But I don't fancy the thought of rubbing a soap bar over my face. I'll have to review my box.

    1. Thanks Nicole! No my box didn't smell nice when i opened it =(. It was the power bracelet that was smelly apparently. Not sure why? Seems silly to me. Yeah the milk cleanser is weird, i might give it a go but it sounds strange to use. I'm glad i didn't get the proactiv (again) i don't have acne prone skin. I hate soap bars. i find them really unhygienic hahaha especially if it is top help with acne. Oh well!

  4. I cancelled glossybox too. I got 3 items same as you but got stupid bracelet & dry shampoo. I signed up for beauty basket & am much happier with their stuff. Congrats on anniversary!

    1. Oh i must check out Beauty Basket then. Not sure if i'll cancel or change over to something else. I could always use the extra $15 months to (somewhat help) cover my nail polish addiction! haha

  5. I actually loved the concealer (but it did come at the right emergency when I was completely OUT of ALL concealer and had a big night out planned). so a+ for arriving at the perfect time! :)


Thanks for taking the time to read and make a comment. I love reading everyone's comments! =)
