This month's Glossybox was based on the theme of city chic and came with a handy travel guide for some of the best cities in the world, such as Rome and New York. Although I loved the idea behind March's box, and obv the super cute travel stickers that came with it, I have to say I was disappointed with the products I received.
The products are all nice and I would probably use them, but I don't sign up to a subscription service to get products I can easily buy on the highstreet. I want to be able to try products before they launch and get a box of buys that blows me away, and this box didn't overwhelm me with beauty joy at all!

1/Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush
I do love pink lipsticks and have always been intrigued about lip crayons - I found this one to be a nice colour but it definitely needed a lot of strokes to build a strong enough colour. I wouldn't buy this but it's good to try one!
2/Nails Inc in St James
I love a bright red but it's a fairly classic nail shade. I would have loved to see a limited edition polish or a holographic one - just something slightly more special than a postbox red. Having said that, I do like Nails Inc and it is a beautiful colour polish.
3/Elizabeth Arden Fragrance-Free Eight-Hour Cream
It's safe to say that this product needs no introduction! It's great to have a sample of this, as I've actually never tried it. It has quite a thick, gel-like consistency which I didn't expect, but I think I like it. Would love to use this on dry skin and just for a quick touch-up on my hands during the day.
4/Juicy Couture, Couture La La
This fragrance sample from Juicy Couture is fruity, which is good because I prefer fruity perfumes overall. It has a really nice summery, slightly citrusy smell to it. I would use it but I don't think I would ever buy the full size one.
5/Tresemme Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray
Although I love Tresemme hair products, I don't really like that it's included in the Glossybox. It's such a 'normal' beauty product and, although it's handy for travelling, this is the sort of thing I would buy in Boots/Superdrug. But my mum uses it, so she is happy with her newly-acquired freebie!
