Beauty: Glossybox October 2016

Glossybox

A couple of weeks ago I received my first ever Glossybox, and what a month to begin with! October's box was in collaboration with beauty and lifestyle blogger Estée Lalonde with the theme of discovery.  Estée picked out the products in this box herself so I was intrigued to see what she had chosen as I love watching her videos! 

I was so excited to receive the iconic pink box and fell in love with the gorgeous packaging! As much as I like being subscribed to Birchbox, you don't get as much of a 'gift' feel that you do when receiving something tied up with ribbon. Plus I am a sucker for anything pink and black!

Trifle Cosmetics Lip Parfait- Buttery lip cream | RRP £12.95
I will be honest, as soon as I saw the packaging of this product I was instantly intrigued. I mean it's cardboard tube isn't like anything I have ever seen before and in my opinion looks a little cheap. I have also noticed that as I put the lid on and off small bits of paper dust keep on going onto the top of the lipstick which is a little annoying. Anyway packaging aside, I love the fruity smell of this product. However the shade is far to pale and patchy on my lips when applied. I have applied this on top of another lipstick though and prefer it much more, but on its own is a big no no!

The Body Shop - Drops of Youth Concentrate | RRP £25.00
This is probably the one product in the box this month that made me the most excited. Since I started using my Clinique Smart Serum back in February, I have noticed a considerable change in the condition of my skin. The only problem is the fact that the Clinique Serum is rather pricey! So I can't wait to give this product a little try.

Universal Beauty Cosmetics - Secret Flush Soothing Cream Blusher and Lip Stain Duo | RRP £15.00
Cream blusher and lip stain duos have become increasingly popular amongst the beauty blogger community over the past couple of years. I for one love them. I don't tend to wear blusher on an everyday basis, but this shade allows you to softly apply it to your cheeks giving them more of a subtle look. More excitingly, using this product on your lips gives you a gorgeous rose tint. Although you do have to apply it with a lip brush or your finger as the tube is too big for your lips.

Bee Good - Honey and Camellia Facial Exfoliator | £10.50
This brand was completely new to me this month, although I think I do recognise the logo! This product states that it is suitable for all skin types, which is great as quite often facial exfoliators can be quite harsh on my sensitive skin. I am really excited to give this product a try, especially because I find that during the winter my skin becomes dry no matter how much cream I apply, so I want to combat this early on. Plus this product is environmentally friendly as well as being friendly to your skin, double bonus!

PS...PRO - HD Mascara Black | RRP £3.00
I have been looking at so many Glossybox reviews to see what PS Pro products other people had received as people have been getting different bits. I received the ultra volume and lift mascara which is perfect for me as I have been on the hunt to find the perfect voluminising mascara recently. I can't wait to give this a try!

New Beauty Shampoo
Something a little different with the box this month, is the fact Estée included this 'invisible' shampoo for subscribers to discover without knowing what brand it was from. Being someone with long hair, I HATE trying out different shampoos as I am 100% true to my Aussie brand. However I did give this a little try and loved the smell of it, but hated the shine it gave my hair. As a dark blonde products that leave a shine sometimes make my hair look greasy which I hate. Estée later revealed on her blog that this was in fact a Head and Shoulders shampoo which was quite interesting! 

Overall I am really happy with everything that I received in my first Glossybox! I am so excited for next months especially with the sneak peek revealing an exciting eyeshadow pencil stick!

Let me know what you think about this months box, or if you love any of the products mentioned! 

Thanks for reading
Love,

  2. I love the packaging too! Pink is my fave colour, my cousin uses glossy boxes and always tells me about the little gifts she gets. I use quite a few of the tea trea products in body shop so I have tried the drops and they make your skin feel so soft and glowy
