What's in February's Glossybox?

Despite being really late, in the interest of continuity I still wanted to share with you the contents of February 2012's Glossybox. It's not that I've been too busy or just plain lazy, February's box turned up two weeks LATE! A major blot on your copybook, Glossybox! Still, better late than never...

Isn't it odd receiving a baby pink box after the Christmas and Valentine's specials? This is the Fashion Week Edition - 5 Fabulous essentials to keep you looking your fabulous best.

BECCA – Beach Tint Watermelon 7ml
Award winning lip and cheek stain in a gorgeous watermelon pink colour. I'm happy to see this, it is something I've wanted to try for a while. At 7mls it's pretty diddy, but a little goes a long way. I did a quick swatch, it smells utterly gorgeous!

DR BRONNER – Lavender Hand Sanitiser 59ml
A lavender scented hand sanitiser in a handy spray size, perfect to keep in your handbag. This is the ONLY full size product in this months' box. I initially turned my nose up at it, A HAND SANITISER! It's hardly something I'd get excited about, but it's nice to find a hand sanitiser that doesn't smell of Dettol!

AWAPUHI BY PAUL MITCHELL - Wild Ginger Treatment Oil
Smooth and seal parched hair with natural oils and the hydrating Awapuhi extract. Absorbs easily imparting a soft, silky texture and rich shine effect. Not very excited about this one either. I have fine, often greasy hair so steer well clear of oils.

BM BEAUTY Pure Mineral Eyeshadow 1g
Award winning pure mineral eyeshadow. Cruely free and suitable for veggies and vegans! I received Wolf Howl, a metallic blue-purple.

COMO SHAMBHALA – Invigorate Shower Gel
A strange mix of Eucalyptus, Geranium, Lavender and Peppermint make up this shower gel, but the scent is not too overwhelming. This ‘blend of essential oils’ is supposed to put you in an ‘uplifting mood’

If I'm 100% honest, I'm a little disappointed with this box. I'm happy to see the Becca tint but I wouldn't say it's a stand-out product like the stars of Glossyboxes gone by (think the HD Brow Palette or Weleda body oil). For me, the rest of the box is made up of "fillers" - sample size shower gel and hand sanitiser. Oh well, the previous two Glossyboxes were fantastic, so we'll let you off... THIS TIME!
