Glossybox October 2013: Dark Romance

I have to say I was in two minds about doing a review of this months Glossybox, but decided it would be unfair not to bring a review even if it is bad, good or indifferent. I am here to give my honest reviews to you.

This months theme is Dark Romance: I believed from sneak peeks on Twitter and Facebook that this box would have an autumnal feel to it, leaning more towards cosmetics. Alas I was very very wrong!

So what was in this months box you ask?! Well here we go.....

MeMeMe Cherub's Blush-Cheek & Lip Tint
First off on opening this I got the smell of Turkish Delight. Yummy! The product reminds me of Benefit Benetint but this is a more affordable dupe. It blends nicely and gives a lovely rosy glow to my cheeks. It is lovely on the lips.

Vita Liberata Latte Illuminating Skin Finish
This offers SPF 25 and a flawless medium bronzing to the skin. It also has subtle shimmery particles to capture the light. I have yet to use this as I'm keeping away from any sort of Tan in the Autumn/Winter months.

Monu Illuminating Primer
This is my fourth product of Monu from Glossybox, as much as I have liked the Monu products and use them all I'm getting a little bored of the same things now. I have been using the Primer and I really like it, my makeup is lasting and gives a love glow to my skin.

Premae Multi-Vit Smoothie Serum
Allergen free which is always good especially for my skin. The serum helps redness and hydrate your skin and keeps it matte and shine free. You can mix with your liquid foundation to create a shine free BB Cream. I have yet to try this but I am intrigued.

Unica Kiss It Better Cream
This contains Prebiotics and is for sensitive and eczema prone skin, I put this on my elbow the other night as I had a break out of eczema and I have to say it was really nice. It soaked in really well and brought down the inflammation. Another bonus is it's suitable for younger kids too. Just a pity the sample was so tiny!

So overall I am pretty disappointed with this months Glossybox, I just don't get the Dark Romance theme as the only thing that was in my box that could suggest that is the MeMeMe Cheek & Lip tint. The samples didn't really excite me, and I'm getting fed up of receiving Monu products over and over again it's getting tedious. There's nothing wrong with the products themselves, but the sample sizes left a lot to be desired especially considering the quality of some previous boxes. I am going to continue till Christmas when my subscription is up, but come New Year I will be looking for something else to put my money towards.

The Glossybox usually costs me in and around €15.60 but this months exchange rate brought it to €16.05, which made the contents of this box all the more disappointing.

  1. Part of the reason I unsubscribed from Glossybox was the amount of MeMeMe and Monu products that kept cropping up. Both good brands - but I feel the idea of the box is to experience new products. I'd have been disappointed with this box too.

    1. Totally agree! I was expecting to experience new brands and that has only happened maybe 3 or 4 times. Are you still getting the Souk Souk box? If you are do you feel like it is worth it? xx

  2. That's a shame, maybe the new Irish box that's coming out will be better.x

    1. Oh you have me intrigued, do you know who is doing the Irish box or when it will be out? I will keep my eyes peeled for it. Thanks for letting me know. x
