Glossybox 3rd Birthday

So it's that time of the month again, and I have to say Glossybox didn't disappoint...

The main product that everyone received was the Philip Kingsley - Elasticizer. I have heard of this befor but never used it, it's a pre shampoo treatment to improve the texture and apperance of hair. It is to be left in for 20 minutes or more before shampooing. It has a light creamy texture, and doesn't seem to have a scent at all. I shall be trying this tonight, could be my new hair saviour, we shall see! This is a 40ml sample worth approx £6 available at Look Fantastic.

Next up; Comfort Zone - Cleansing Milk. This is a full size 200ml I was very pleased to recieve such a large product. I have just removed my makeup with it using a cotton pad, it's very lightly fragranced, my skin feels very soft and looks positively glowing! I'm loving it! The comfort zone brand is new to me, founded in Italy all the products are produced in Italy. They are a highly ethical brand, using natural products where possible and their production plant uses 100% renewable energy (I'm impressed by that!) I can't seem to find this particular cleansing milk online but it retails at £20, more details at Comfort Zone.

Figs & Rouge - Mini Hand Cream. This looked very nice, made in the uk, cute packaging. But on use I am not loving it - It smells like parma violets (yuk), when applied it seems to melt into a watery texture and it leaves a strange thick residue on your skin. Hmm I don't think i'll be repurchasing. This is 20ml worth approx £1.75. If you desperately wanna try this you can have mine, failing that Feel Unique stock them. It's a shame as all the packaging is so nice.

Kryolan For Glossybox - Highlighter Cashmere This was definately my favourit product when I opened up my box. I have been debating for some time whether to purchase a Kryolan Highlighter. So you can imagine my excitement, this is a beautiful light gold with a hint of pink colour, the texture is incredibly smooth and it glides on the skin like a dream! This is a full size the retails at £12.95 and can be purchased directly from Kryolan

Next was a perfume sample of Lalique - L'amour I'm not overly impressed with a perfume sample ever. But it smells lovely, it's described as a scent of seduction, it's quite sweet but has woody undertones. Having done a quick google it's Lalique the glass designer brand, if you've ever watched bargain hunt and such like they go crazy over a bit of Lalique haha! It's not cheap at £67 for 50ml and is available at Boots.

Lastly was a birthday bonus product of Yves Rocher - Nail polish in Rose this is a very cute 3ml bottle, love the colour and it gives great coverage with just one coat. I like this brand having visited one of their stores in France, the products are good quality without a massive price tag. This is £3.60 from the Yves Rocher website.

Thanks Glossybox, absolutely love the 3rd birthday edition. Lots of new brands and products and items I nearly already bought, Winner!!
