I Love This Box March 2012

Friday 16 March 2012

My "I Love This Box" was delivered this morning!! I love the purple wrapping!! Its so pretty. This months box is all about Autumn and the products which will make you look gorgeous.  

Essie Nail Polish in "Carry On"
This is from the Autumn Collection. It is a gorgeous deep burgundy colour that is perfect for the colder weather. I have only tried one other Essie polish, which was a glittery colour, so I can't wait to see the finish of this matte colour.

Maybelline XXL Pro Curl
This is a 2 step mascara that helps to lengthen and curl your lashes. I actually haven't used a Maybelline mascara in a long time. The last one I tried was the Great Lashes (which I hated), so haven't tried one for a good 5 or so years.

Sunsilk Frizz & Weather Defence, Weather Protection& Shine Serum
I haven't used this before, but I really should since I suffer from frizz! I love that it is also a shine serum, but will need to make sure that I don't use much since my blonde hair can easily look greasy and lank with too many products on it. If you didn't get this you would have got their Detangling Mist.

Thalgo Soft Hydrating Emulsion
This is a great deluxe sample size that has enough to see how it feels and works. It sinks in quickly and doesn't leave your skin greasy. So it is perfect for those mornings when it is too cold to be standing around in a towel.

Glitter Puff Wand
This actually holds a body powder that sparkles! I haven't used anything like this, so I can't wait to see how effective it really is! I'm not normally a glitter person, but am quite excited to try this! 

As usual I think ILTB has done a great box. I like that there are nails, hair, make up and body products in the box, as a box full of just one item is frustrating (especially when it is skincare!). I love that there is no facial skincare, since that is the hardest thing to try especially if your skin is sensitive.  

I think the other boxes need to lift their game, as this box as well as Lust Have It have been great! Now people are over the newness of the beauty boxes, and quality of products are more important than ever.

What did you think of this months box?


  1. Wow this looks wayyyy better than some of the posts on Glossybox I've seen! love the glitter puff wand ha xx

  2. Wow, i missed my delivery this morning, but the box looks amazing. this is my first ILTB, i was a glossybox subscriber (but after last months box i jumped ship), and i can't wait to pick mine up

  3. Whoops, my box just rocked up. same as yours, but my nail polish is slate grey (called power clutch) and my glitter wand is green (my 3 y/o girl loves it)

  4. Looks like a great box, this month is the deciding month for me to drop 2 subs, its going to be tough now, I'll probably cave and keep them for another month!

  5. I love my box! Also got the grey 'Power Clutch' polish. Excited to try it out, and the Sunsilk shine serum.

  6. This is a great box hun, enjoy playing with all. Would love to know more about the mascara. It's so funny, why is it cool to have an XXL mascara but not an XXL dress? =) As you can tell I haven't had my coffee yet xx

  7. I love ILoveThisBox and Lust Have it - definately the two most "value for money" boxes. Glossy box is always a bit of a dissapointment now. Also Beauty Basket is pretty good, always great value and you can see what's in the basket before you agree to buy it :D

  8. Wow, what an amazing box! Will need to check this out for sure.

  9. I got the same nail colour as you..this is my first ILTB...quite happy with what's in it..what I don't use my teenage daughter will.

  10. I got a silver nail polish instead but I quite like it. Last month's was better but this is pretty good still!

  11. I am loving my box, which I only got today! Postponed visiting your blog so I wouldn't ruin the surprise for myself. :p

    I got the detangling spray, very happy with that...and my polish was a pale taupe/beige colour, which I love. Yours looks really pretty too, though!
