My first GlossyBox came in the post today! I was a little over excited, but after all the hype, controversy and disappointment that’s been circulating around these boxes over the last couple of months I just wanted to rip it open and see what was inside!

GlossyBox we're very lucky to get such a great full sized product like the Nars illuminator into first box, which attracted most people in, but I think it’s also worked against them now as every new box is undoubtedly going to be compared to that first. I still think it’s a great concept though and I'm pretty sure people will be kicking themselves after cancelling their subscriptions.

I was a little gutted I didn't get the mini Xen-Tan that I've seen in a few other people's boxes (if anyone wants to swap something for it, let me know!) but overall, I'm pretty happy. Love the colour of the nail varnish from Ciaté, one of my favourite brands and totally surprised to see the full sized Illamasque pigment in there which at £15.50, makes up for a whole box and a half!

I think the great thing about GlossyBox, and probably its main aim, is to help people discover new brands and products that they wouldn't usually look into. So instead of trying to bag something well known and expensive for cheap, I think we all need to enjoy the products that we're given and hopefully, fall in love with them all! And anyway, who doesn't love to get a mystery box full of treats every month!?

So, what did everyone else get in theirs?
