September Glossybox - first look and impressions

I think it's fair to say I'm waaaay behind in my Glossybox posts and that's because I'm waaaay behind in actually opening the Glossyboxes.  I've said before that this year has been mad and that's why they've taken a back seat (along with quite a lot of housework and other non essential jobs).

Anyway, September's here and I'm rectifying my sloppiness with Glossybox right now!

This is the September 2017 Glossybox in all its glory.

I love the perfectly pink box (my favourites are the themed boxes, sometimes I like the box more than the stuff inside it but maybe that's just me and my packaging obsession).

Inside the perfectly pink box is:

So, first impressions, what do I think?


Skinfix Hand Repair Cream
My first thought about this was "oh no, not another hand cream" because I'm really bad at putting it on and therefore I have absolutely loads lying about the place.  But when I looked further I could see that it was a fragrance free hand repair cream which treats and manages eczema, dermatitis and dry skin conditions.  That's when I started to get a little excited because my hands are terribly sore in the Winter and two of my three sons also really suffer, I think they don't dry their hands properly at school then go out into the playground without gloves and their hands end up all sore and cracked.  I'm really hoping this can help.  It's got shea butter, vitamin e and almond oil in it so it sounds quite promising I think.

Taylor's 32 Natural Whitening Toothpaste
I've never had a toothpaste in one of these boxes before, not that I can remember so this is quite a departure from the usual things that go in the boxes.  It's Classic Mint flavour, definitely going to try this.

Pixi by Petra Brow Tamer
Anything from Pixi by Petra is a welcome addition to my make up collection, this is a fun brow tamer.  Glossybox are really good at giving us all the brow products, the powders, the pencils, the pens so this looks great although I wouldn't say I've got wild eyebrows but they could do with a little coiffuring!

Siligel Blender
I was really pleased when I saw this,  I've recently stopped using my foundation brushes and started using those little make up sponges.  So far I've only used the cheap small ones from Superdrug or Tesco which are working perfectly fine, and better at blending than my brushes but this is pretty impressive looking so I'll definitely use it.

Monuskin Firming Figi Facial Oil
I'm always slightly wary of face products because I've got quite sensitive skin but given that this product is for dry/sensitive skin I'm assuming that it'll be OK.  It doesn't say on the bottle to put it on morning or night so I might just try it at night so it's got time to sink in and do its work!

Kinder Bueno Chocolate Bar
Ah, chocolate.  Enough said!

Watch this space for the results!

Love, Maria
