August 2014 Glossybox

 I have been getting Glossybox now for a couple of years and no matter how many times I think about cancelling it, I can't bring myself to do it. I love the surprise each month, it makes me feel like it's my birthday every month. Anyway, on to this month's box.

This month was the 3 year anniversary of Glossybox, so I had high hopes for this one!

The first item I picked out was the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer. This product was created especially for Audrey Hepburn and is a pre-shampoo treatment. I have never used anything like this before so I decided to give it a go straight away. I'll be honest, at first I didn't think this made much of a difference to my hair, but after styling it and curling it, my hair was so silky smooth, the curls just fell straight out and I was left with shiny soft hair. I only put a tiny bit on as well!

The second product I picked up was the Yves Rocher Nail Varnish in 14. Rose. I really like the colour of this nail varnish, and it only needed a couple of coats to get a strong colour. The mini size won't last long though I imagine!

The third item in my box was the Kryolan Highlighter for Glossybox. I am yet to try this out but it looks like a lovely glowy colour swatched on the skin.

I then checked out the 4th item, the Essence Longlasting Lipstick in 07 Natural Beauty. This is such a nice colour, but I can't say it was overly longlasting and seemed to come off my lips as soon as I ate something. I'll try it out again though and let it set longer and see if that works.

A couple of other items I received was a perfume sample from L'alique called L'Amore. This is a really lovely fresh scent and very floral.  It was also very longlasting on the skin. I also received the Figs and Rouge Mini Hand Cream in Mango Mandarin. I've received a sample of this before in the Rose scent and I wasn't a huge fan, but this one is really fruity and the best thing about it is that it's non greasy on the skin. Definitely a handbag essential!

I look forward to receiving next month's glossybox!
