September GlossyBox Maggie Li Edition

September GlossyBox*

I have been incredibly awful with posting about my Glossybox, in fact it has been a really really long time since i last did a Glossybox post. I am really sorry for this, i just got behind 1 month and then it just spiralled from there and then i got totally behind. I am a little late with the September box but i wanted to come back to reviewing my Glossybox with a bang and i certainly think this months box is worthy of that. I do promise that from now on i will resume to reviewing my box as normal. I am a Glossybox Embassador which means i do get the box sent to me for free and also a little earlier than the normal shipment date which means i can test and trail the products for a while before getting my review up on the day of shipment, i absolutely love getting my Glossybox and testing out all the products so i will for sure get back to being a good blogger and getting my post up every month for you!

So onto the September box, the box itself is gorgeous and has been designed by Maggie Li an amazing illustrator. I am so in love with the box and will for sure be displaying it on my new desk..i popped a few snaps of my new desk on instagram which you can follow me on there at sophieismadeup but if you would like to see a few pictures on here and for me to let you know where everything was from then i would be happy to do that for you.

Anyway so what did i get inside this months box?

Lady Gaga Fame Fragrance Sample
Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream
The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream
L'oreal Professional Tecni Art Full Volume Extra Mousse and Smooth Control Gel Cream
Rodial Sample sachet of the Glamoxy Snake Skin Serum and 5 Minute Facial

I was really happy with the contents of my box this month. The big winner for me was the sample of the Lady Gaga Fame Fragrance, i know there is a lot of controversy about perfume samples but i have to say i really like them for my handbag and what with being a huge gaga fan and not having smelt the fragrance yet i was so happy i could try it and also keep the sample in my handbag..the fragrance is gorgeous by the way, nothing too out there and doesn't smell totally different from anything else but non the less it is lovely. I have always been a fan of  The Body Shop Vitamin E range and i had totally forgotten how much i loved it so was super happy to see a little pot of goodness in my box. Balance Me has always been a brand i have been really interested by so to get their Wonder eye cream was really wonderful...i love it already!! The L'oreal Tecni range i believe is really popular so i am excited to try both products. Rodial is a brand which i really love so i was really excited to see some samples of the very popular snake serum and 5 minute facial..i think the 5 minute facial should be my treat for tonight whilst watching x factor!

This month i have to say i was really impressed and happy with my box, especially the design of the box its just gorgeous!

Thank-you so much Glossybox and here's to me being back on track with my reviews yaaaaay!! 

What did you think of this months Glossybox?
Were you happy with your products?



  1. I was the exact opposite lol. I got the same box and I unsubscribed straight away. It has rapidly gone downhill - none of those products excited me. The idea of paying £12 for a hit and miss box is just not appealing anymore.

    Glad that you will be abld to get some use out of it.

  2. yeah idk about the box but Miss Dior Cherie back there... nice! ;)

  3. I got a different box to this and was really let down this month. I thought the product sizes were awful and the products I recieved weren't the best either :( Check out my blog guys :) I'm new would love some constructive comments! Would love to see other peoples too :)

  4. great post! still haven't tried any of these boxes

  5. I got the same as you in my box, I actually loved it! The body shop moisturiser and eye cream I use every day - occasionally the 'de-frizz' serum :) xx
