September Glossybox: Maggie Li

This month's box was designed by illustrator Maggie Li,  and is introducing the exciting "rising stars" of fashion, design and beauty. I wanted to try these products and give them an honest review, so that's why the post is so late.  

The box is definitely one to keep, and held a few products to keep too. 

Firstly, the Lady Gaga perfume sample: I have to admit, I'm not a fan of her music or this perfume. It just isn't my kind of scent I'm afraid. It's very hard to describe scents without the reader actually being able to smell it, so I suggest just going to a perfume counter and having a sniff yourself.

The Body Shop, Vitamin E Moisture Cream was a very welcome product; I have used this cream many times, as my mother and grandma have too. It is very delicate on the skin, and leaves your face feeling soft, smooth and hydrated. This is well worth the money, full size £9

Balance Me, Wonder Eye Cream: I have seen this brand pop up quite a lot across various beauty blogs and YouTube videos, and the reviews about it were really good, so I was excited to be able to try it myself. I have noticed a positive result, and my eyes are certainly looking less tired since using it, I will definitely be purchasing the full sized product, priced £20. 

Biosilk, Silk Therapy: I wasn't in the market for a new hair serum, as I received one in another Glossybox a few months ago, but I gave it a try and I was really impressed with the results. It definitely moisturised and re hydrated my hair, and it smells amazing - just like what your hair smells like after going to a hair salon. 

Rodial, Glamoxy Snake Serum and 5 Minute Facial: I have to be honest, I haven't tried the serum or the face mask. Only because I don't have frown lines or wrinkles, so I'm not sure what these products would actually do for me, and at £29 & £10.95 for the original products, I didn't want to waste them. (I have given them to my mum... who was only slightly offended, ha!)
