Glossybox August / A little late...

 

 Apologies for my thoughts on the August Glossybox, better late than never! The theme was 'International superstars', with the Olympics making a big impact I think this was a great theme!
The products which came in my August Glossybox were...

* Alessandro Pro-White Polish (Germany) is a brightening nail polish which helps to diminish the look of yellowing nails. If you're a keen nail polish wearer this may well appeal to you. Thankfully I've been good and normally use a base coat so my nails are in quite good condition. Still a great idea though!

* DHC Deep Cleansing Oil (Japan) I've actually already tried this early last year I think. I had a tiny sample come through the post with a catalogue. I wasn't sure how they had gotten my details but still enjoyed testing out the sample. I remember my skin being on the drier side back then so I'm interested to see how my combination skin reacts to this. It's a makeup remover and water-soluble.

*All For Eve 'Eve's Balm' I've seen this brand mentioned before so I was happy to see this featured in the box. It smells of Lavender but not too strong, I find some lavender scented products a little overbearing.  This is definitely one to carry around in your handbag!

*Glossybox Lipstick Glossy Pink, I must admit i was a little sceptical when I saw this in the box. After the last Glossybox product which was the goat hair brush I was left disappointed. However after popping the cap and swatching the colour I was totally surprised and happy with it. This is probably the most used product out of the box which I've used and reached for.

*Lipcote (UK) I'm going to be honest and say I really didn't like this and have now passed it on to my mum. I know it's meant to tingle but it felt like it was burning my lips! However it did prolong my lipstick, but i couldn't bare using it every time so sadly its a no no for me!

There was one other product which I haven't mentioned but was featured in the first photograph and that was the eyeshadow palette. It was the one product which didn't stand out for me.

Despite the eyeshadow palette I would say this is another good box, the DHC cleansing Oil is a great size and the lipstick is a stunning colour! What did you think of your Glossybox?

  1. I bought Lipcote after reading some reviews on popular, established blogs... I haven't noticed that the bloggers were actually paid for the reviews... Well... A big, big disappointment. It felt like my lips were in fire!!!! My lipstick came off in tiny disgusting lumps and I am seriously confused about this product!
