What's In My March Glossybox?

I have only recently delved into the world of beauty boxes, and after last months Glossybox, was really looking forward to getting the next one this month. I had seen a few posts and had a little nosy at what others had received in their boxes, so I was excitedly waiting for mine, when suddenly, there it was when I got home on Saturday although I had been sent no dispatch email. I can overlook this though as I was so eager to see what was inside and I have to say I wasn't disappointed. So onto the pictures....
This months box is all about City Chic, with products designed to keep busy women looking gorgeous. I was really impressed with the samples included this month. If my maths is correct, the total worth of my box was £24.64.

First up, TRESemme Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray £4.69 for 500ml, 100ml included. I haven't tried TRESemme hairspray before as I usually just stick to Boots own, but I have just run out of my handbag size spray, so this was a welcome sample!

Now onto the more interesting bits, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, £25.00 for 50ml, 7ml included. I'm sure every beauty addict has heard of this one, but I have never had my own to try so I'm looking forward to seeing how well it works. I was glad to see this is the fragrance free version as the smell of the original version really puts me off it!

Next up, another big brand, L'Occirtane's Brightening Hand Cream, £19 for 75ml, 15ml included. I'm not sure how brightening my hands will work, but I do need hand cream at the moment, the weather isn't being kind to me! The first thing I noticed about this was the smell, I'm not a fan of it, but I can ignore the smell if it works! It feels lovely on and my hands do feel softer after trying it, although I'm not sure they look brighter!

This was the sample (I say sample, its really full size) I was most excited to try! Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush, £12. I'm not sure of the shade name, but its a gorgeous pink. I am loving the Revlon version of this, so I'll be comparing them at some point, hopefully this will be as impressive! I didn't realise Jelly Pong Pong were still around, I seem to remember them being one of the most wanted brands when I was younger and I was really jealous when one of my school friends got something from them (can't remember what).

Finally, another perfect sample for me- Nails Inc Bruton St, £11 for 10ml, 4ml included. I love Nails Inc polishes but am reluctant to spend £11 on something I will probably use once or twice, so the mini versions are a good alternative for me. I love this colour, described as a dusky pink nude, I think it will be perfect as a base for some nail art.

Finally, the Glossybox freebie, a mini travelling book with information about all sorts of places. I actually found this quite interesting! You get some cute stickers included too.

Overall, I have been really impressed with my boxes so far and will keep getting them. This months is my favourite, there isn't anything in it I won't use and although it is worth less than last months, I don't think this actually matters.

Did anyone else get a similar box? Are you as impressed as me?
