Glossy Box Review (August) #6

My favourite time of the month had arrived when my Glossy Box came through the door. This month’s box theme is called “International Superstars“, so I was looking forward to seeing what hot products across the globe were going to be provided.

The box contained:

  • DHC  – Deep Cleansing Oil

  • Alessandro – ProWhite

  • GlossyBox – Lipstick in Glossy Pink

  • Lipcote – Lipstick Sealer

  • All For Eve – Eve’s Balm

  • Vera Valenti – L’ombre a Paupiere Margarita

 DHC – Deep Cleansing Oil

Review – I’ve actually tried this cleansing oil before and really liked it. You have to apply this to a dry face, massage it in, then rinse it off. Make up dissolved off my face after just one wash (I usually double cleanse), which is really good. I’m not usually a fan of cleansing oils as I don’t feel that my face is clean after using it. I much prefer using cream or gel cleansers. This beauty, however, may break that tradition.

Alessandro – Pro White

Review – This nail polish aims to brighten and neutralise discolourations on the nail surface. I don’t normally get any discolourations as I always use base coat before applying colour. A great idea for those who only wear clear polish though as it is extremely shiny.

GlossyBox- Lipstick in Glossy Pink

Review – This lovely rose pink lipstick is not only a gorgeous colour, but very moisturising too. It is ever so slightly shiny, which is what I prefer as I generally go for matte shades. It really complimented my skin tone and has fast become one my favourite lipsticks.

Lipcote – Lipstick Sealer

Review – I have also tried this product in the past. so it wasn’t that much of a surprise for me. This lipstick sealer works by placing a nice coat of liquid on to coloured lips and making the lipstick last longer. It has a slight tingly affect when applied, but this subsides pretty quickly. A good product that works is all I can conclude this with.

All for Eve – Eve’s Balm

Review – This is an all round moisturising balm formulated for dry, chapped skin. The first thing I noticed about this was the amazing aromatherapy scent. I have only tried this balm on my lips and it’s been great so far. I also love the fact that it has a mirror inside and its a good size to fit in your make up bag.

Vera Valenti – L’ombre a Paupiere Margarita

Review – This eyeshadow palette consists of four green and six brown shades. The colours are not very pigmented, were rough in texture and the applicator provided was also very poor. An hour after applying, the colour had started to crease and fade, so overall I was quite disappointed with this product.

This month’s box has been average for me, not too bad, but not that great. Hopefully, the next one would be better.

What do you think of this month’s box?

With  Love, Julie
