Here it is! My Glossy Box, I am so happy I finally got round to writing this, I have been feeling majorly sorry for myself as I was ill, but anyway enough of the sob story!
I was excited to receive my second ever Glossy Box and I was not disappointed either! I got a card explaining what was in it, last time I didn’t get one and I think I was meant to but that’s okay, I am a very forgiving person hehe!
So, the first product on the list, Lollipop’s Make Up Eye Pencil, in black.
I love this eye pencil, its the one where you twist the bottom part and it makes the pencil part come out, it is great for the lower lid but I also needed to do my make up really fast and I normally apply liquid liner to the upper lid and I actually used this which worked really well as I smudged it and it made for a really good smokey eye effect! Impressed and I definitely would buy this!
Next, Burt’s Bees Lip Shine, in pale pink.
This lip shine is gorgeous, it glides on so well (albeit with a few little grainy bits in, which can be forgiven because it it 100% natural apricot wax), it works really well over the top of red lipstick actually, I do like it on it’s own though for the day look!
H20+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment, oil free moisture gel to hydrate skin and minimise the appearance of fine lines.
Don’t like this, it just did not feel right on my skin! You put it on over a damp face and I did that, it smells horrible, I don’t have any wrinkles yet and so can’t say if it minimises wrinkles, definitely not my favourite! (Luckily it was a super small tube!)
MONU Skincare Refining Capri Facial Oil, to balance oily skin and decongest pores to help maintain spot prone skin.
OMG! I am literally in love with this, the smell is zesty natural citrus oil, camphor and grape seed oil, it is absolutely delicious. I have been using this for over a week morning and night after cleansing and I love it! My skin has cleared up, my make up goes on much more smoothly (foundation!) and my pores do look a lot smaller too which lets face it, is always a great thing! Very impressed with this and would fork out the £26 for 100ml from the MONU online shop!
Girls!!! This is saving the best till last, Umberto Giannini Frizzi Miracle Worker, it’s amazing, seriously! I think this hair stuff is heaven in a gel, I put about 7- 8 squirts (hehe!) onto the palm of my hand and then rub my hands gently together and start at the roots and down to my tips on towel dried hair, I then spray on my John Frieda 3 day straight and a small spritz of my Lee Stafford Poker Straight heat protecting mist, then I blow dry and voila! My hair is soft and feels absolutely great, smells delicious and then I put about 3 squirts more and after straightening my hair I just gently stroke it through my hair, I then put the blow dryer on cold and on a low speed and then set my hair! I love this and WILL be buying more, at £8 for 125ml, BARGAIN!
