Glossybox 3rd Birthday | August 2014

A few days ago Glossybox celebrated it's 3rd global anniversary - Happy 3rd Birthday Glossybox!
With a lovely new style of box, which took me forever to figure what they had changed so i had to compare with an older box - the obvious signs were what the box isn't glossy and instead replaced with a stunning matte finish. It's kept it's pretty pastel pink shade and the box feels sturdier and one thing i did notice first is that the edges aren't as round and replaced with a sharper trim edge which makes it easier to open and close the box. I much prefer this design!
To celebrate Glossybox's 3rd birthday the contents of the box included some great little goodies which i wouldn't say there was anything in there i would completely go gaga for - but in saying that i am pretty pleased with it's contents and would definitely use all of these up.
COMFORT ZONE CLEANSING MILK - FULL SIZE 250ML // £20
First up is a cleansing milk, this contains anti-oxidants and hydrating active ingredients to help remove any make up and pollution residues for radiant, refreshed and softer skin. I actually used this last night just for a quick speed review for this post and i can say that i do really like this cleansing milk. It's really light and gentle on the skin, i used this after using my cleansing oil to remove last traces of make up and i can vouch that it works well in that department. You can either apply this and rinse well or remove with a cotton pad. I didn't see much of a difference after using this the first time around but i do really like it for removing last traces of make up.

FIGS & ROUGE MINI HAND CREAM - SAMPLE
I have fallen in love with this hand cream already, i applied this as soon as i opened the box and just fell in love with the Mango Mandarin scent instantly! The cream is really moisturising and the perfect consistency i like for a hand cream to me, it's not to thick nor to thin. Just perfect!
SHOP AT: WWW.FEELUNIQUE.COM - Full size £6.95 / 80ml
YVES ROCHER PINK NAIL POLISH - FULL SIZE // £3.60
Another full-sized item but a mini was this mini nail polish from Yves Rocher, this is the cutest thing ever! I haven't used this polish yet but i'm thinking this would be good for my next manicure.
This mini polish apparently has maxi colour which means it's highly pigmented and you only need to apply a thin layer of this and wait to dry and your finished!

PHILIP KINGSLEY ELASTICIZER - SAMPLE
Originally created specifically for Audrey Hepburn, this pre-shampoo treatment delivers unrivalled elasticity, manageability, bounce and shine without weighing down the hair and is suitable for all hair types. I have actually used this before in the past and loved it so much but just never got round to purchasing a new one so i'm so happy this was in the box this month. It's definitely not cheap but if you fancy a real treat this is the one!
SHOP AT: WWW.LOOKFANTASTIC.COM - Full size £38 / 250ml
LALIQUE L'AMOUR EDP- SAMPLE
I'm not really one for perfume samples but i don't mind one here and there, this scent is a soft floral sensual fragrance. It has high notes of Rosebuds laced with bergamot, white floral heart notes and a musk base note. This fragrance is supposed to capture the essence of 'Love'.
SHOP AT: WWW.BOOTS.COM - Full size £67 / 50ml
KRYOLAN FOR GLOSSYBOX HIGHLIGHTER, CASHMERE - FULL SIZE
Lastly is a product from Glossybox themselves and it's this beautiful highlighter in Cashmere. Apply this to your cheekbones, lips, and other parts of the skin for a beautiful velvety shine. I used this yesterday on my cheekbones and i really like it, the texture is really smooth and feels really nice to apply. It blends really well and it gives off a really nice glow.
SHOP AT: WWW.KRYOLAN.COM - Full size £12.95 / 4.5g

  1. I got all the same products as you except for the cleanser - I got a gorgeous lipstick instead! Really lovely post by the way - I am also hoping to do a Glossybox post in the next few days and would love it if you had any feedback? xx
