I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last posted – apologies for that! Im currently coming to the end of my final year at university and the last few weeks have been pretty intense.
However, my Glossybox has arrived and I had to post about it!
If you have read my blog in the past you may know that I was a subscriber of Birchbox, but Glossybox honestly just seemed like the better option so I made the switch! (Days before Birchbox announced they had Bad Girl Bang in this months box – just my luck)
Anyway, this month’s edit marked the start of spring – and is absolutely beautiful
March 2018 edit
“Out with the old and in with the new. Hibernation is over, so let’s all blossom and bloom as Spring awakens!
We promise to shake up your beauty routine and give you a spring in your step! It’s time to refresh and revive…”

This month’s packaging design was a simple and bright mix of pink, white and black. I almost didn’t want to unwrap it because it was so pretty! As you can tell, I had a lot of fun taking pictures of it…
Inside, I got 5 full size products claiming to be featuring “a magical recipe for beauty sleep and a skin perfecting serum”
MUDMASKY | Sleep Repair Renewal Nourishing Mask
According to Glossybox, this mask uses only fresh, raw, all-natural ingredients to hydrate, soothe and smoothe your skin.
I was expecting this product to be like any mud mask – thick and opaque – but actually it was a clear gel?!
According to the instructions, you put this mask on before bed and rinse it off in the morning, perfect if you don’t have time for a full on pamper session
I haven’t had chance to wear this overnight yet but I did wear it for the stated minimum of 5 hours, rinsed it off with warm water and my skin felt amazing!
ORYZA BEAUTY | Warm Nude Lipstick
These ORYZA lipticks RRP for £15.95 each so I was quite impressed that it was in my £10 Glossybox!
This one in particular is in the Velvet Ribbon lipstick range – velvety being the perfect word to describe how it feels on the lip!
Although I love the formula, the colour is a bit too warm/orangey for my skin tone, but paired with a brown or nude/pink lip liner, I can easily make it work.

FIGS & ROUGE | Soft Focus Pore Perfect HD+
This stuff is so hjkjhjk good.
The Soft Focus Pore Perfect is a “weightless, matte serum designed to minimise the appearance of pores.”
I have naturally dry skin (find out your skin type here) so I didn’t have high hopes for this one, but it is amazing as a primer!
It comes out the tube quite watery but dries down quickly leaving a tacky base for your foundation – keeping it truly in place all day.
CAUDALIE VINOSOURCE | Moisturising Sorbet Cream
As I said earlier, I have dry skin so I’m always happy to see a moisturiser!
There isn’t much I can say about this one as I found it a standard thick moisturiser – I find that with products like these I need to test them for a longer period of time to have a full opinion.
UNIVERSAL BEAUTY | Secret Flush
My favourite product this month! I usually reach for a bronzer rather than blush, but as we get into the warmer season I’ve been feeling it.
This was the product that I felt the Valentines edit was missing last month, so I was really keen to try it out. The fact that it can be used as a cheek and lip stain is another plus!
This product truly “glides on like silk” and takes no effort to blend, perfect whether you want a bold or more subtle look. It also has a slight shimmer, and leaves a lovely glow on your cheeks. Dreamy.
That’s what I got this month! If you subscribe to Glossybox, what did you get? Let me know in the comments…
