Glossybox Review- October 2016- Estee Lalonde

Hey guys!

YESS it is that time again, Glossybox review time.

I have read a few of the sneak peaks this month and I was so excited to finally get my box. Unfortunately once again no-one was home so I had to pick it up from my local parcel collection office, which has the WORST opening times. Anywho I have it now and I am one happy chappy this month.

May I just say this months’ box smelled extremely lovely when I opened it and made me excited for the content even more. I quickly realised that we actually got 6 products this month as well, which just added to my excitement.

Let’s see what we got :

The mysterious shampoo: Now initially this was a secret product, that we were told to try out before the item gets revealed. (it has been revealed in emails, therefore I can tell you that the product is of course Head and Shoulders.) I didn’t actually try the product before the reveal, but the smell sort of gave it away I think. One issue with head and shoulders is that it is not the best for coloured hair, especially if that is a funky/crazy colour. However, I am going to give it a go as I have not used head and shoulders for over 6 years due to the above issue.

Skincare:

1.We received another Bee Good product which I am so excited about. A few months ago we got their firming moisturiser which I loved. My review of that is here. I am so excited to try this one and I am sure I will love it just as much. This time we got their Honey and Camelina Facial Exfoliator which smells great and promises to be gentle to all skin types. I love these types of creamy exfoliators, and this one is full of great ingredients and no nasty chemicals. We actually got the full-size product which would normally cost £10.50.

2. During the winter my skin needs just a bit of extra love, and moisturising, therefore I was happy to find another body cream in this months box. I have never heard of the brand ‘Rituals’ before, but immediately I fell in love with their ‘The Rituals of Sakura Body Cream’. I honestly cannot believe how good it smells. It is absolutely amazing and feels like silk on your skin. I will DEFINITELY repurchase, even though it costs £19.50 for the full-size product. So worth it- one of my favourite products so far from Glossybox.

Make-up:

3. Another brand which I have not used, or heard about is Trifle Cosmetics. I love the fact we receive so many organic, environment-friendly and gentle products from Glossybox every single month. The Lip Parfait- Buttery Lip Cream is another example of a great product. It is full of good ingredients, vitamin E, it’s hypoallergenic, vegan and has no parabens or nasty chemicals. I simply love it, the colour is a lovely baby pink which feels so soft on your lips. I love the texture, the ingredients and the smell!!. It retails at £12.95 which is quite expensive, but you are getting a really really good product. Check out the website they have lots more stuff.

4.PS…Pro Longwear Lipliner- As you probably already know, the PS..Pro is a Primark make-up product. I am unable to leave a link as Primark doesn’t really have a website, but I am sure you can find these lipliners in every store. I’ve not tried it on my lips, I have only swatched it on the back of my hands, but let me tell you it really stays put. I don’t mind the make-up from Primark, and one of my favourite lip liners (which I use all over my lips) is from there and cost me a whole £1. Don’t get me wrong it is not the best, but its priced fair and I like it. This Lipliner is priced at only £3. (also if you are a fan of a bit of extreme eye makeup I recommend using this as eyeliner too, especially as its Halloween time)

.5.We recently received a lip/ cheek tint a few months ago. I’ve heard that this month we are receiving another product like that, which at the start bothered me, however when I opened the box I realised this is completely different. We received the Universal Beauty Cosmetics- Secret Flush, Soothing Cream blusher & Lip Stain Duo. Name and a half that is! I’ve got colour #4-Nectar, which is a great colour for autumn, as it is a little deeper and more red than pink. You can use this as a blusher, or just a tint, all over your lips on its own, or adding it to another lip product to deepen the colour. I would even use it as a base eyeshadow, possibly under something glittery to use as a primer to let the glitter stick. tHeres just so many options. Once again the scent of this is great, and it is also a full-size product. RRP of $20 or £15 it’s not the cheapest product out there but it certainly is versatile.

That is it for this month, and I am really impressed Glossybox! You have done so well. I cannot get over the fact that all of the products picked by Estee Lalonde smell amazing! I want more products like these in the future. Fil approves !

Thanks for reading

Love,
