My Glossybox for this month has finally arrived. I very nearly emailed Glossybox the other morning to let them know I hadn't received it but decided to wash my hair first, after which it turned up! This is apparently a limited edition box which has been 'exclusively designed by up and coming illustrator Maggi Li.' The contents are meant to be an introduction to 'some of the most exiting rising stars across fashion, design and beauty.'
What's in the box?
|Big Sexy Hair Spray and Play 50ml - Full Size £8.60/300ml|
I've been wanting to try this brand for a while but hadn't got round to it. Used it the other day and I do like it, I found it added volume, hold and also texture - used sparingly. If you don't like the feel of 'product' in your hair though this may not be suitable but that doesn't bother me.
|Balance Me Wonder Eye-Cream 7ml - Full Size £20/50ml|
This seems to ticks all the boxes 'eye-cream wise' (I do like their lip balm and have yet to try out the face wash which I got when the Glamour freebies were on). I'm happy with my current eye-care at the moment (which - yes - I have still yet to blog about!) but may well give this a go ...
|Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Complex 7ml - Full Size £29.99/50ml|
Apparently helps smooth the look of fine lines and over time helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Going to try this out on the old neck as I'm noticing deepening of necklace lines and a bit of sagging (oh joy) so need to start paying more attention to this area pronto (now that I'm an older bird and all that).
|Rodial Glamoxy Snake Serum and 5 Minute Facial 2 Sachets each|
Full Size - Snake Serum £29.00/10 x 1ml - 5 Minute Facial £10.95/10 x 1ml
The Snake Serum is meant to help 'reduce the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles'. Think this is one of those products that 'freezes' them temporarily, never really fancied anything like this to be honest but I'll either try it out on my forehead or get a fuller fringe cut! I do have a friend who loves stuff like this though so she may end up with these.
The 5 Minute Facial is 'a triple action resurfacing gommage clay mask'. I've read that this is a highly effective way of exfoliation as it sort of 'rolls off' the skin and hopefully takes the dead skin cells with it when you remove the mask. Will be trying this out shortly.
|Lady Gaga Fame Fragrance 1.2 ml - Full Size from £25.00/30ml|
Not really sure about this, it reminds me of Dior's 'Poison', sort of sweet, dark and potent - not my kind of fragrance. It's definitely one for winter nights out. This will go to a friend.
So that's September's box - the Sexy Hairspray and Wonder Eye-Cream seem about the best products in theory - not a fantastic box considering some of the products in past months but hey - ho!
What did you think of this month's Glossybox?
