Glossybox - August 2013

Another month another glossybox! This months theme was 'Highflyers' so beauty products from around the globe.

So lets see whats inside the box this month!

So we are back to the usual glossybox design with the pink box and black tissue paper which makes me happy as it co-ordinates with my other boxes which i am using to store my makeup and skincare.

I have to be honest and say i feel a tad underwhelmed upon opening my glossybox this month!

First up is Oceane Makeup Remover Pen (not yet available in the UK). Oceane originates from Brazil. This pen is intended for use on the go when you need to touch up or remove makeup. It looks handy but im not too sure how much i will really use it.

Next we have Emite Make Up Eyelash Curlers originating from Sweden and retail at approx £20.
These look quite good and eyelash curlers are always handy so i'm quite pleased with this!

TREsemme Platinum Strength Concentrated Treatment Shot, from the U. S of A Full size 15ml £1.49.
I always love a hair treatment so this will be nice to try.

Olay Regenerist (South Africa) 3 point treatment cream. Full size would be 50ml and £29.99.
The cream is quite nice but i think i am a little young to be needing this just yet. Fortunately for me i don't have sagging skin or many fine lines and wrinkles so i cant really vouch for the benefits.

Last up is Jelly Pong Pong a UK company and their 2 in 1 shadow/liner full size would be £10.50
This is the second Jelly Pong Pong product i have had in a glossybox and whilst i really liked their mascara i just didn't like this at all to be honest. It slides on easily but slides off to just as easy and trying to smudge into an eyeshadow i ended up with more on my fingers than my eyes.

So to sum up this months box i have to say i was a bit disappointed! But then for £10 i guess i can't be too upset. I think i like it when you get actual make up bits to try. Hope next months box is a bit better.

  1. Glad someone else got the Olay regenerist cream. Everyone else seemed to get some jazzy shower gel scrub! Was beginning to think I was just old :-$
