Yay, my October Glossy Box arrived!
This is super super exciting, like Christmas, Easter and my Birthday rolled into one, I am looking forward to giving you an honest review on everything I received in my first EVER Glossy Box!
Here is October 2014’s Glossy Box-
The actual box is just too cute, pop art style, definitely a keeper and I was impressed with how beautiful the inside presentation of the box was!
So first up is the Nuxe 24hr Soothing and rehydrating fresh mask, I gave this a go but with my combination skin I did not like the oily feel that I had afterwards so I ended up washing it off but having said that and leaving it on my face for the recommended time of 10 minutes, my face did feel really soft. 🙂
être belle Lip Lift peel, I tried this the minute I opened it, it is supposed to provide gentle exfoliation for your lips to make them feel really soft it has tiny grains inside it and felt like a cream in texture, the smell was lovely. I definitely had softer lips and this was the first time I had tried any lip exfoliator and I was pleasantly pleased, this has made me want to try the Lush lip sugar even more!
Me Me Me, elegant eyes. I am yet to try this trio eye shadow, purple, grey and black. I do like the look of it though and will let you know when I have used it by doing a review of it’s own soon!
Argan Oil of Morocco, This is a moisture rich hair treatment oil and it is AMAZING, please if you have not used this before then use it, I put it on my hair whilst it had just been towel dried and then proceeded to blow dry as normal, I then straightened my hair and applied a small amount in the palm of my hand, rubbed my hands together and smoothed my hair down. It literally felt amazing, the most soft that it has ever felt in fact and no frizz (as a mixed race girlie with naturally curly hair, this is like the best feeling in the world!) I am in total shock and will definitely be researching further into this brand and look into investing in some of the other products that they do! Again, when I get them I will definitely tell you about my experience with them. 😉
Rimmel london BB Cream, sample size in the colour light, this personally was disastrous for me, firstly it was way too light for my skin tone and secondly it just does not cover any of my darker pigmentations on my face. I don’t like it for me but for someone who has great skin and hardly any darker marks it would work really well as the consistency is for the barely there look. Not for the combination skin, in my own opinion!
So Susan Flutter Mascara, One word, yuk! Let me explain, I opened it and the fluid basically exploded out the top, so sat on my chair in front of my dressing table, hands covered in mascara I battled on and applied it to my eyelashes which I had curled using an eyelash curler, I applied one coat and let it dry, another and then another…nothing. It is for people who have naturally long eye lashes, so ok I was a bit harsh saying yuk but that is just because I was gutted it did nothing for my eyelashes… 😦
So there you have it lovely people, that is my review, I honestly did love it and I felt so happy on the day I got it and I really am looking forward to opening November’s one….bring it on!
