Valentines Glossybox!

Mr postman delivered my (long awaited) Glossybox this morning finally! Was a quicker delivery than expected too. (yay!) I had been quite naughty and read a few spoiler alerts so had an idea of the things that were in it but was kind of disappointed with this month's box. I didn't quite see what any of these things had to do with the Valentines special box other than the packaging?

So let's cut to the chase, this is what I got:

1, Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner in Plum - I've heard a bit about Eyeko so was quite excited to see this in it, as previously mentioned, I had seen a spoiler and was hoping for the pink shade hoping it was a little like the Benefit Eye Bright but we'll see how it goes! I'm a bit unsure about such a big, skinny bit at the end of the pencil but hey ho.

2, Orly Nail Lacquer in Ruby - Orly is another brand I've heard a lot about, but haven't yet tried any of their products. I'm interested to see the consistency and staying power but I must say, I'm not a lover of the shade, it doesn't seem to suit my skin colour normally. :(

3, Weleda One Step Cleanser & Toner - I wasn't overly thrilled by this product. I've got quite sensitive/dry skin so I am wary trying new things when it comes to cleaning and toning but I'll see how it goes anyway.

4, Fab Gentle Body Wash - I've heard of this and the packaging is cute and handy for travel sizes etc but I've got soo many body washes collecting dust I need to use them haha. It claims to calm redness and relieve dry skin though and is good for sensitive skin so I'll keep an open mind.

5, Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer (Dewy Finish) - I've seen the brand previously in my boyfriends Glossybox when he had a face clarifying mask and loved it so I have high hopes! I'm one that skips using face primer mainly due to laziness but it's great timing as I was on the hunt for a good primer that could transform my skincare routine! It's only a small sample but if I love it then I can use my 33% discount from Glossybox to buy the full size! Bargain! ;-)
