Glossybox 3rd Birthday

Monday, August 25, 2014

Glossybox is celebrating their 3rd birthday with a lovely matte looking box. The Glossy team kept the pastel pink shade but replaced the shiny glossy cover on their box. I have kept almost all of my boxes for storage - they are really cute, especially if there is a theme (Valentine's day, Independence day, Christmas etc). They look so beautiful! I always keep my things very organised and I don't see a reason to throw them away! I was looking forward for this months box. I got many emails from Glossybox before they sent this box out, giving away a few hints of what might be inside!


I'll start with the Kryolan Highlighter in shade Cashmere. Kryolan is a professional high end make up brand which has developed an exclusive highlighter just for Glossybox. I love the lid - it has a Glossybox logo on it and it has a cool design for the anniversary (reminds me of the box). This highlighter is lightweight and very creamy which makes it easy to apply. It provides cheekbones with a beautiful velvety shine. I have never heard of this brand before but I am definitely up for trying this product out. The shade looks very natural and I can see myself using this a lot. RRP £12.95 for full size product 4.5g.


I am super excited for the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer. I love hair treatments and this product is just so perfect for me! This pre-shampoo treatment, originally created specifically for Audrey Hepburn, is the world’s first pre-shampoo conditioning treatment. Intensely moisturising Elasticizer delivers a deep moisture to the hair’s cuticle, elasticity, manageability, bounce and shine without weighing down or coating the hair. It is also fragrance free and suitable for all hair textures. This treatment should be done before shampooing wet hair (applied to mid lengths and ends), covered with a shower cap and left in for 20 minutes or more, then rinsed and followed with shampoo and conditioner. Full size £38 for 250ml. Mine is a sample size of 40ml, which would be perfect to take with me when I am travelling around. I love doing treatments for hair/body when I am staying in hotels.

Comfort Zone is a brand I have never heard of before. I haven't used cleansing milk for years now as I haven't found a good facial cleanser. All of my previous ones have made my skin break out badly. This Essentials Cleansing Milk is something I am quite happy to try out though. The Glossy card describes this milk as gentle on the skin, containing anti-oxidants and hydrating active ingredients, which are perfect for daily use for all skin conditions. It removes make up/residues of debris in the morning/pollution perfectly and leaves skin healthy and balanced day after day. It should be applied to dry skin in the morning and evening, massaged gently, rinsed well or removed with a cotton pad. RRP £20 for 200ml.


I am so happy when I find Yves Rocher products inside my beauty boxes! It reminds me of when I was younger when I made cosmetic orders with my mum. She was constantly buying products from Yves Rocher and I was always there trying to get something for myself! I love nail polishes and there is never enough pretty pink shades. Yes, it is quite small but I am not complaining! For testing out it is just perfect and as I like making my nails colourful, it leaves plenty of room for other nail polishes! RRP £3.60 for a 3ml


I have been using Figs & Rouge Mini Hand Cream for a few days now and I am absolutely loving it! I can't believe how quickly it absorbs and also leaves hands so moisturised at the same time. It does not leave my hands greasy and I don't have to worry about leaving marks everywhere. This hand cream is enriched with shea butter, natural antioxidants and algea extract. Also it is strongly fragranced; I got Rose Berry, which smells amazing, just like candies! RRP £6.95 for a 80ml. Mine is sample size of 20ml. I guess I have to make an order soon to get a larger tube!

Lalique L'Amour is a fragrance for women launched in 2013. I love discovering new scents and I love getting small perfume testers from beauty boxes. The scent is very soft and sensual. It is still very flowery, so it is perfect for daytime wear. RRP £67 for 50ml.

I am very happy with this months box! I have made some great discoveries from new brands and am also very happy to try out all of the products. I love beauty boxes, they are like little presents you are waiting for every month.
