Glossybox Festive Edit | June 2015

Never have i been so excited to open a Glossybox!  After seeing a few little sneaky pics online of what was in the box i knew this months Glossybox was going to be a good'un.
If you follow Glossybox on any of their social media accounts you get little sneak peaks of what's to come in your upcoming box and i knew this months box contained something which i was dying to try out! 

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few months you'll all of heard of Flash Tattoo's. If not then basically they are temporary tattoo's in small words.
I've been wanting to try them out for so long now and was so excited when temporary tattoo's were bought back to the surface! I was always the one to go out and spend my pocket money on temporary tattoos as a kid, and not much has changed since then.
As soon as i opened the box i was greeted with them and knew instantly i had to try them out as soon as possible! As with any other temporary tattoo's all you need is a wet cloth, sponge or bit of wet tissue and the design you would like. I opted to have one on my wrist and one on my ring finger, i only had to hold the wet cloth over the tattoo for about 10-15 seconds and removed the paper back side off to reveal a beauty temp. tattoo within seconds.
These tattoos don't actually last long, though it does say you can have the for up to 7 days however these only last a day, if that! Obviously as i had both on my hand and my wrist they were bound to come off easily so i placed a Flash Tattoo on my ankle and it lasted for up to 3 days! I think these would look fab on a holiday or for festivals - i love them!

Next on my list to try out was the Essence The Gel Nail Polish, mine was in the shade 'electriiiiiic' - not sure why the name had to include 6 'i's in there but hey-ho! I applied this polish on Tuesday night and it's lasted pretty well so far, though it does now have a few chips here and the texture of the nail polish is quite sheer so it does need at least 2-3 coats.
It does however dry quite quickly and is extremely cheap at only £1.71 full size!

Next up was the MONU Spa Rosewood Reviving Mist, i have just recently gone back to using my Caudalie Beauty Elixir which i have fallen back in love with. However the price of those does really put me off so when i received this reviving mist i was keen to give it a try especially the full size is a 100ml and it's only £11.95.
Not only is it a great make up setting spray it's also great for when your skin feels like it may need a little pick-me-up and also great to wake your skin up in the mornings. I've been using this over my Caudalie Beauty Elixir as i've been loving it, it sprays over your face evenly which with the beauty elixir i find that all the ones i have owned don't spray evenly over your entire face and you really have to go full throttle on it just to get a bit sprayed out, not only that but i'd pick the scent of this over my face any day over the elixir. It's not only for the face but you can also use this on your body to which will help hydrate the skin. Bonus!

Another fab hand bag essential is the Halo Fragrance Free Facial Wipes, if you travel a lot then these would come in handy for late train rides home where you just want to remove all the muck off your face, or if your doing your make up on the train these are also handy for cleaning your hands.
Lastly is something that i could definitely benefit from and that's the Kueshi Anticellulite Booster, this is a light weight cream which has hard hitting natural ingredients and antioxidants to stimulate the blood circulation whilst toning your skin and fighting off dimples.

Overall i am very pleased with this month's Glossybox, lots of great goodies this time around and i could definitely make use with all this products.
