February 2013 | Glamourbox Unboxing & First Impressions
WILD PEACH COSMETICS | Customizable Makeup Palette
Personal Size With Sticker | PhP 298
The Wild Peach patented palette is designed to simplify your daily beauty routine. Featuring a magnetic base with free form layout, it lets you minimize clutter by consolidating makeup into one container.
Whoever thought of including this item in this month’s Glamourbox is such a genius! I’ve been contemplating whether or not I should get this palette because I have quads in my vanity that are half filled, half broken. But thanks to this month’s box, I don’t have to order anything anymore! (Scratch that — I might, since I just depotted some of my eyeshadows and I’m running out of space :| )
Full-size Jar | 7.5g -PhP 109.75
Carmex jar contains natural moisturizers such as cocoa butter and lanolin. These and other emollients give you healthy-looking lips by moistening and preventing chapping caused by environment
I’m not gonna lie, I was a bit surprised seeing Carmex in my monthly box, but it was actually very timely too. Not that I don’t have any lip balms, in fact I have tons. (being that I am such a huge lip balm junkie, as you all know) However, for some reason, my lips (especially my lower lip) seems to be REAAALLLLYYY dry & chappy these days and I’ve tried all of my lip balms here, even my regular Carmex and after just a couple of minutes, it goes back from being soft and moisturized to really dry. Then I thought of using this, and what do you know, this particular Carmex has a longer staying power than most of my lip balms. So, I guess having this in my Feb box is kinda okay.
KJI & CO Emergency Lash RX
Full-Size | PhP 1,350
This lash serum prevents new virgin hair from being adversely affected by cosmetic and environmental factors. Users will see dramatic improvement in lash volume, texture and density
I was really interested in this product because it’s from KJI & Co. I loved their lip stain, which was the one that came from last month’s Glamourbox and because of that, it got me curious and I really would like to see if this one will live up to what their label says. So far, it’s only been four days since I started using it, and all I can say is that, I am definitely intrigued. I will update you more after a couple of days if there are any developments regarding my lashes
SNOE Oil For All Argan Oil
Full-size 25ml | PhP 799
Argan Oil has been gaining recognition for its restorative ad anti-aging benefits to skin and hair. High in Vitamin E, this “Liquid Gold” heals dry skin, prevents acne breakouts and reduces marks and fine lines
I like the idea behind the container bottles, it’s so cute. I’m not sure how much this bottle contains and I’m not sure how long it will last, but this can be useful, especially now that I have a really dry skin. I’ll let you know what I think about it after a couple of tries, maybe
CALVIN KLEIN Beauty
Full-size 100ml | PhP 5,498
Sophisticated, confident and radiant. Beauty evokes the ultimate power of femininity and sophistication. It captures the spirit of woman who is beautiful from the inside out
Great. Another perfume sample. :|
So those are all of the items that I got from my February Glamourbox. I actually liked this one better than the January box, and that’s mainly because of the customizable palette and the lash serum. But if I am to be honest, I still think that their November and December boxes were a lot better than this one. I am not disappointed with the items that I received, nor do I hate it. I still think that you get what you pay for when you pay them PhP 580 monthly, and I still believe that it’s worth it. I know that more than a few might (will/are already) be disappointed with this month’s box, but I’m actually fine with it. I got three full sized items which could be worth more than PhP 1,700 if bought individually. Instead, I only paid less than half of their prices combined. There may be some ‘eh’ items in this month’s box, but I don’t know, I guess I just happen to like my Glamourbox this month.
So how about you guys? Did you like this month’s Glamourbox? Did you subscribe to any monthly beauty box this year? Let me know your thoughts!
Oh, and stay tuned for my BDJ Unboxing everyone! Bye!
