August Glossybox


Sorry it's been a while! I've been off to Alton Towers with my best friend this week, and then this put me off for the whole week! But I'm back, and to make me feel better again, my Glossybox arrived!!!

This month was the celebration of Three years of Global Glossybox, and I think the packaging was amazing! The box itself had also changed slightly, with it being a very straight box, withno glossy effect on, and I think this gave such a nice professional finish!

Lalique L'Amour

When I picked this out first my heart sank... yet another perfume sample! Then two things happened, I realised it was an extra item - thanks Team Glossy! & then I took a sniff, it is such a gorgeous scent! If it wasn't for the huge cost I would be buying this soon!

This is £67 for 50ml and is available here

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

I'm on the fence about this item at the moment... it is a pre-shampoo treatment to restore elasticity and bounce in your hair, the one thing swaying my mind is the fact that it was created specifically for AUdrey Hepburn. I will give this a go and post a review after I've given it a decent go!

This starts at  £15 and is available here

Yves Rocher Pink Nail Polish - Rose

This is the cutest little bottle! It's a lovely natural colour that is perfect for a subtle look, the size also makes it very handy to pop in your make up bag for last minute emergencies!

This is £3.60 and is available here

Figs & Rouge Mini Hand Cream - Mango & Mandarin

I have so many hand creams now! I received one from Lush, one from The Body Shop, and now this one, but, hand creams are by far my winter essential, as they get so dry and painful! This one smells so good! I would definitely recommend this to anyone needing a hand cream but wanting a fruitier scent!

This is £6.95 and is available here

Essence Longlasting Lipstick - 07 Natural Beauty

After reading so much about Essence through other bloggers, I was so happy when this came in my box!! It is such a gorgeous shade that is a lovely natural colour but bright enough to look like you have it on!

This is just £2.29 and is available here

Kryolan for Glossybox - Highlighter Cashmere

When I first picked this out I assumed it was an eyeshadow! But after seeing that it has been specifically designed for Glossybox, I'm so excited to use it! I didn't get a chance this morning after having a late wake up call - oops! But I'm excited to give this a go and see if it can beat Benefit's High Beam to be the first full size highlighter in my collection!

This is £12.95 and is available here

Overall, I loved this months box! Recently I've been contemplating cancelling either Glossybox or Birchbox, and right now Glossybox is the one to stay!!

Also, how cute is the background?! It's a new top I purchased from the Jack Wills sale!!

Coming Soon - August Birchbox, Summer Make-up.
