May 2017 Glossybox Unboxing

The first product I saw was this detoxifying activated charcoal body scrub from scrub love with cucumber and bamboo. It is said to be 100% natural and to exfoliate, tighten pores and leave your skin looking and feeling nourished. My skin has been so dry lately so I can’t wait to give it a go!

This sample size of the Caudalie vinosource moisturising sorbet for sensitive skin has a gel-cream to water consistency which is supposed to help soothe and moisturise sensitive skin without irritating it. I’m looking forward to trying it out as it seems quite lightweight for the summer months when my skin is at its oiliest.

The coral shade of this gorgeous Ruby super silky blush suits my complexion perfectly and is definitely a new favourite.

A tube of Dr Paw Paw’s original balm was also included in the box, it is an extremely versatile product. The natural, gentle formula can be used on cuticles, hands, elbows, fly away hair, lips and even as a nappy cream! It’s definitely going straight in my handbag.

The last product was this volumising effect lip gloss from Nutrakiss which is a perfect travel size and leaves me with plumped up lips for hours.

April 2017 Glossybox Unboxing

Once again Glossybox have delivered me five lovely products to try out and share with you!

Firstly I received this SportFX eyebrow pencil in ‘brunette’ which twists up on one side to fill in any sparse areas and has a brush on the other to help keep your brows in shape.

The next thing I saw was this Model co contour stick, I’ve never used anything like this before and am looking forward to using it! I’ll let you know how I get on.

This Radial ‘glamolash’ mascara is supposed to give XXL volume and is the perfect mini size for travelling or keeping in your makeup bag for touch ups throughout the day.

I’ve used a Merci handy sanitiser before in the vanilla scent and absolutely loved it, they leave your hands feeling clean without drying them out. A total handbag must-have.

I’ve heard about co-washing before but never got around to giving it a go so i’m looking forward to testing out this one from Dellwash haircare. It’s supposed to be a lot more gentle on hair and stop it feeling dry and frizzy; definitely something I would benefit from.

March 2017 Glossybox Unboxing

After what has seemed like the longest month my March Glossybox is finally here, and just like the last one it’s filled with five fantastic products I can’t wait to use!

The first product I saw was this sleek eye and cheek palette which I was very excited about as I’ve never tried out any sleek makeup before but have heard great things about it. I love all of the colours as they quite natural and perfect for everyday wear.

Next I saw the thisworks ‘in transit camera close up’ which is a mask, moisturiser and primer all in one and claims to hydrate skin leaving it dewy, plump and perfectly prepped for flawless makeup application. I’m sure it will live up to my expectations as I’ve never been let down by a thisworks product before.

A sample size of the F&R ‘Hydra-Activ smart nutrient day cream’ was also included and is supposed to deliver long lasting hydration and radiance with vitamins A,C and E. I’m looking forward to using this as my skin has been very dry and dull lately.

This 30ml sample of Swarskopfs ‘BC oil miracle brazilnut pulp treatment’ is for nourishing and moisturising hair whilst removing impurities. My hair has been really dry and limp over the last few months so I  can’t wait to give it a go.

Lastly I received this eye cream from Oolution which is 100% natural and contains ingredients which stimulate collagen synthesis. This means you’re left with bright under eyes and reduced wrinkles, obviously I don’t have any wrinkles at 21 however it will help to prevent them!
