March Glossybox Review!


I was eagerly anticipating this box .. as I always do! It arrived on the 27th and I literally squealed with delight when Canada Post dropped it off. The mail carrier (see pete.. I didn’t call him a mail man) actually laughed at me! ha.

I have to admit I squealed even while I was opening it.. but I’ll explain why in a bit ;).

This month glossybox was back to their usual packaging which I liked. I’ve been keeping all of my boxes as they’re so cute to gift things in! :



As I usually do I read the little card that comes with the box and got super excited because I always try really hard not to look what is inside of the box before I read it:

Now here’s what was inside of my glossybox!!



ModelCo Cheek & Lip Tint - Rosy Red-- FULL SIZED!!!


This was the first product I had tried from the box. I’ve never really been into lip tints or stains as I tend to suck at application. Plus, you can’t mess up with this one because you’ll ruin your whole look. I started with applying it to my cheek.. eeeek!! It did NOT work out! I tried it on the other cheek.. it looked good! I think the first time I didn’t put enough.. so.. I tried again! This time I used wayyyy too much and looked like I had a red splotch on my cheek!

I talked to my mom about this product as she also subscribes and she mentioned putting it on your finger tips, patting them together and then applying them after. She likes this stuff.. so I think I will try that.

The stain went on a lot nicer but I’m not sure I love the colour. I’m more of a peach/coral/pink type person.

Not sure I’d ever use this product on a work day or when I’m rushing somewhere. I need a lot of practice on this before I could wear it everyday. I’ll try it again and see :)

Rating: 2.5/5

Jergens Natural Glow 3 Days to Glow Moisturizer in Fair to Medium-- FULL SIZED!!!

As someone who really, really, really (x 1,000,000) hates tanning (it’s so bad for you!!!).. this will come in handy for me this spring! I REALLY enjoy sitting out in the sun and catching some rays but going to tanning beds is really bad for you! Sooo against that! I’ve used this product before and it’s great! It goes on smoothly, works quickly and does exactly what it says! I’ve never ever had a problem with this product. I’m Going to start using this within the next week :)

Rating: 5/5

L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Dark Spot Corrector Serum-- FULL SIZED!!!


As someone who already faintly suffers from dark spots I was really happy to receive this! This runs in my family so I know it’s a good idea to start soon. I’ve been using it for a week now and my skin feels great! Really soft and smooth! It says that the age/dark spots will not fade until 4 weeks so I will give you an update on this product the next time I do my glossybox review.

Rating: 4/5


Tresemme Platinum Strength Deep Conditioning Treatment -- FULL SIZED!!!


I was really, really excited to receive this as I needed some deep conditioning treatment! I haven’t got a trim since January and I have some serious split ends! I used this ONE TIME and my hair felt FABULOUS. Soooo soft and silky and my ends looked really smooth! I will definitely be buying this in the future!!

Rating: Wish I could give this a 10/5 but that is unfair.. hahah 5/5

BM Beauty Platinum Tiara Eyeshadow


I have to admit I never really liked loose powder eyeshadow but this was a very different experience. I tried it for the first time on Thursday and was pleasantly surprised. It went on nicely and I barely needed to use any! It didn’t get on my cheeks or all over the counter which is what usually happens when I use loose eyeshadow. I do however have to complain about the packaging.. it took me at least 5 minutes just to open it!! I swear it was jammed.. that pissed me off. That all went away when I tried it though. I put it over Sin by Urban Decay and it blended very nicely. I’d welcome this again in another glossybox

Rating: 4/5

So there you have it my peeps, my glossybox review! Overall, I was extremely happy. My glossybox almost totalled $90!

If you havent already caught on the reason I was so excited is because all of the items are full sized items! Whoot! I loved everything I received this month.

Overall Rating: 4/5

Thank you glossybox!

Stay tuned next month for my next glossybox review.
