August GlossyBox


Just a quick one to show you what I got in my GlossyBox this month. These reviews are everywhere, and I think most people are getting a little sick of them but personally, I find it interesting to see different people’s opinions on things!

There isn't anything that really jumped out at me this week as being amazing. I like the idea of the Rebel Nail Wraps, but the thought of neon yellow toes doesn't really appeal to me (the picture doesn't do justice to how florescent they are). I was surprised to see the KMS shine and shield in there, a brand that I used for a long time until I thought they had gone out of business after not being able to get hold of any of their products. At the moment I'm using the Kérastase Ciment Thermique, on of my favourite hair products ever (the smell, oh my god) before I dry my hair, so I'm a little bit hesitant to start using something different, but next time I wash my hair I think I'll give it a go!

I used the Ahava body lotion last night and I have to say it felt lovely on my legs until I got half way through X Factor and had to go and wash it off again because of the smell! It was fine going on, but after a while it turned into a very strong powdery scent, along the lines of Chanel No5 or one of those other 'old lady' perfumes. I'm not saying I hated it, or that it would smell the same on anyone else, but for me it was just so overpowering!

Nice to see the full sized Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet Mascara in there. I'm going to be waiting to use it though after looking through my makeup bag and realising I had about six half used tubes of mascara on the go, all opened within the last three months. Such waste! I'm currently on a mission to cut down not only the beastly size of my collection of cosmetics, but the massive amount of money I seem to spend on new things every month which is making me more and more tempted to take out an overdraft! From now on I’m going to be using up what I have until I actually need to by something!

The one product I am excited about though is the Murad Cleanser. My skin has been awful at the moment and unlike most other anti-blemish cleansers this one doesn't foam up and leave my skin feeling totally striped. And its anti-aging too! I definitely think I’m becoming a bit of a cleaners addict. I have well over 20 half used bottles of the stuff tossed aside in my bathroom cupboard!

I'm a bit undecided as to whether or not I like this month's GlossyBox, but I don't think that’s going to stop me subscribing. I’m hooked! Did everyone else like their boxes?
