Hello, I’m back from the beach! And I was more thrilled than usual to come home to a box full of goodies waiting for me from the Glamourbox team!
This isn’t my first time to get a beauty subscription box, and a lot of you might relate to how the novelty, the thrill and excitement never gets old—the effect is always the same! This month’s box is themed Bridal Bliss; to be honest, I don’t know how long they’ve been doing themed boxes but I actually quite like it, it’s like a clue to the whats-in-the-box mystery.
Anyway, I have been a bride not too long ago and I can’t tell you enough how important it is to mind your skin, months before the big day. I was half-manic the whole time I was preparing for that event-of-my-life and all that can take a toll on your skin. My makeup artist friend advised me to amp up the scrubs, moisturize and drink water like crazy a few weeks before the event.
I believe my almost-obsessive skin prep paid off, I had pretty good skin come wedding day. Of course, a great makeup artist can take you a long way, but ultimately, it pays to have good skin..as you and I already know.
So I’m just as excited to find out what’s inside the Bridal Bliss box! I’ll just do a quick, run through of what’s inside, and maybe some initial impressions, etc. I’ll do individual reviews later, as per usual.
Bridal Bliss Glamourbox contains: L-R, Physiogel Intensive Cream, Nippon Esthetic Solutions Facial Cleansing Sponge, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Complete UV Moisture Sunscreen, Bare Naturals Skin Perfecting Primer, Bare Naturals Lip Vitamin Stix in Butterfly Kisses, Isis Pharma Dermatologie Teen Derm Gel, Mustela Stelotopia Cleansing Cream
The Bridal Bliss box focuses on skin-perfecting beauty selections. I’m quite glad that it’s more preventative than corrective as I believe you can’t hurry skin. You have to work on it, invest time and energy for results to show. I’m also only too happy to receive two full sized products that I urgently need: an intense moisturizer and a sunscreen! As you now, I just came back from the beach and I finished my Neutrogena SPF 110 sunblock while I was there. I also came home with super dry patches of skin on my elbows and feet, maybe from too much sunning. I was having too much fun to mind my “regimen” so now I pay. The Physiogel Intensive Cream was the first tube I reached out for—it immediately calmed my sore elbows (which, at that point, was starting to hurt). Today I used the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Complete UV Moisture Sunscreen (which is such a steal as this alone costs Php460, I have thought of buying this sometime ago!). It was fluid and non-sticky, with SPF50 which is my minimum for the face. I’m really looking forward to trying out the rest, specially the Bare Naturals Skin Perfecting Primer and Lip Stix.
The box also came with this! A free 55-minute class at Plana Forma—god knows I need some form of exercise after all that feasting I did in Antique.
All in all, this is a great Glamourbox! Even if you’re not yet to be a bride soon, it wont hurt to give your skin some loving, coz you’ll never know!
