Glossybox Free Box Offer Review!

This month Glossybox had a promotional code - buy the Valentines box and get a bestselling box from 2012 for free! Too good an offer to pass up so Hubby got me the boxes as part of my Valentines present.  Here is the review of the Valentines Glossybox that I received link.
The free box had the normal baby pink packaging
I was made up when I opened the box!
It's the November 2012 box which as I had already cancelled my Glossybox subscription by then means that all the contents are completely new to me.
Dr Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm
This is a 15ml sample, 50ml retails for £18.00 here making the sample worth £5.40.
I have heard good things about this BB cream so I'm really happy to get this sample, I wore it to work on Friday and was really happy with the coverage and application.  The colour is probably a touch too dark for my pale skin but will be perfect once the snow stops and the sun starts shining!
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
This is a 13g sample, 75g retails for £31.00 here making the sample worth £5.37.
Again I was really happy to get this item, I have also read great reviews on this and I love dermalogica products.  13g is a fab sample size as it is a powder so you actually get quite a lot of product.
Crabtree & Evelyn Himalayan Blue Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy
This is a 25g tube and 100g retails for £13.40 here making the sample worth £3.35.
 Nourishing macadamia nut oil, a potent vitamin C & E complex, and soothing tea, ginger and champaca extracts make for gorgeous-looking hands, while myrrh extracts take care of nails.
It smells gorgeous! It sinks in very easily and doesn't leave a greasy residue.  Perfect handbag size too.
Alison Claire Mango Body Butter
This is 50ml sample, 200ml retails for £15.00 here making the sample worth £3.75.
This is a natural product that contains organic ingredients, it smells lovely so I'm looking forward to trying it out.  I'm trying to moisturise a lot at the moment to minimise the dreaded pregnancy stretch marks so this will definitely come in handy!
Nails Inc Caviar Topcoat
A 4ml sample. 10ml retails for £12.00 here making the sample worth £4.80.
I have never tried this topcoat as I usually use Seche Vite but this claims it leaves nails touch dry in 45 seconds so can't wait to try it out.

I absolutely love this Glossybox! It is the best box I have had in ages!
It made up for the Valentines box not being this best and I would have happily paid full price for this free box.

Did you take advantage of this offer?  Did you get the same free box?


  1. This seems a great box. I really want to try the Dr Jart BB cream.
