March 2013 Glossy Box

Hi guys! This week has flown by! It's almost time for yet another weekend. Except this weekend will be filled with yummy food, jelly beans, Easter baskets, and egg hunting! I can't wait to go home on Sunday (I have to work all day Saturday :( ) What will you guys be doing this Easter?

Yesterday I received my March Glossy Box. I received one back in March as well. However, I felt as if it was not even worth reviewing and if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you probably saw my feelings on it. Let's just say some of its contents were pony nail stickers and a mini soap bar...not worth $21 at all. However, I feel this month's box did redeem itself somewhat. Enjoy!

The Products
I actually received 5 products, 3 of which were full size, plus a $40 gift certificate to Prestiche body products which doesn't require you to spend a certain amount before you get to redeem the $40
I definitely appreciated that!

Model Co. Cheek & Lip Tint
PINK! This was the first product I noticed in the box when I opened it. You gotta love anything colored hot pink! This product is meant to be a cheek and lip tint in one. It reminds me of the Benetint cheek and lip stain by Benefit. Definitely the same color, just thicker, almost like a gel. Oh and it is full size!

Oh and let me tell you, it's definitely a STAIN.

Sebastian Shaper Fierce Hairspray
As I've mentioned before, I love getting mini cans of hairspray in any beauty box, they always come in hand! I've heard good things about the Sebastian hairspray lately so I'm definitely looking forward to trying it!

Prestiche Soap
Yet another soap *sighs* I would completely love the soaps if, A. they didn't smell ATROCIOUS and B. if they weren't in bar form. Let's be honest, I don't know very many people who still use bar soap.

This bar in particular had the most offsetting scent that when I opened my box I immediately wanted to   close it....not the best first impression.

Oriental Plants "Emollient Cream"
Woot Woot! Moisturizers are literally my BFFs. Especially creams that are thick AND paraben free. This Oriental Plants moisturizer just so happens to be both of those things. 
This moisturizer in particular doesn't have a scent, which I like. The size is perfect for travel or an overnight bag. My BM moisturizer is in a large jar which isn't always the easiest to pack so I'm glad I'll have something on hand to bring with me when I travel.

Elite Paris Intensity Waterproof Eye Liner
I feel like over half of my eye liners come from beauty boxes, which I'm not complaining about. You can never have too many black eye liners. This Elite Paris waterproof liner is waterproof and also seemed to have a small amount of glitter in the formula when I looked at it. It's also full size. Again, no complaints here!

Prestiche $40 Gift Certificate
80% of the time when I see "gift certificates" in my beauty boxes, they aren't technically "gift certificates", more like vouchers where you have to spend $100 or $75 in order to be eligible to use the certificate.

However, when I went to the website most of the products were around $39.00-$59.00 so technically the card does cover one purchase (or most of one purchase) and you don't have to spend a certain amount to redeem the card. I honestly appreciated that!

That pretty much wraps up this month's Glossy Box! I can't say whether I will keep subscribing to it considering I've only received two, one of which was a total dud. I guess we'll just see how things go!

Thanks for reading!
Until next time....
