October GlossyBox: Review

Sunday, 28 October 2012
Hey Beauties,

  Sorry i've been so quiet on the blogging front recently, I went away for a long weekend with my family, to the yorkshire coast, which I definitely needed! The rain held off luckily, but the wind was on a whole other level. So I rocked the wind-swept look for days, GORGEOUS!


Sisterly Love on the beach :)

Now, onto the reason for this post!
    I recieved my October glossy box, earlier this month and loved the products that were inside. I've used them all a number of times, and enjoyed them all. I think Glossy Box picked really good products to get you through the autumn and winter months.

"A pink grapefruit body scrub that buffs with bravura sense of charm and wit"

Firstly, the 'Anatomicals' body scrub. This product claims to smell of pink grapefruit and it really does! I know i've had other products that say they smell of certain fruits ect. and they seriously don't, so I was really pleased when this scrub smelt, like it claimed to :)
I think a body scrub is good for the colder months, as your skin can get quite dry and dull, so a scrub is good for getting rid of all the dry skin and revealing lovely soft fresh skin. Which also smells lovely!! Always a bonus.

"Perfect coverage on first application: a smooth, supple luminous film covering the entire lips"


 I thought this Yves Rocher France; Moisurising Cream Lipstick, was the perfect colour for the colder/party months. I already have a red lipstick, from accesorize, but it is quite a matte colour, where as the Yves Rocher, is more glossy and moisturising. I'm a sucker for red lipstick!

I was really pleased with the next two products, as with the change in weather, I have been suffering from breakouts on my chin area. Eek.


"A unique solution for clearing skin blemishes, showing results in 2-3 days. Kind to skin with no side effects"

 I've never really heard much about the brand 'Skinetica' but as soon as I saw that it was for breakouts, I knew I had to use it straight away. You apply it every 12 hours to clean skin, and it does sting at first, but for me, that's when I know it must be doing something! :) I have noticed a difference in my skin, and will definitely use this when I notice a breakout occuring.

"Cleanse, tone and moisturise with the day/night 3-step mini kit"

Dermalogica is a brand I have heard quite alot about, I was quite excited when I saw this mini kit in my box. It contains a foaming cleanser, a toner and a moisturiser. The product I was most excited about was definitely the toner, as it was a spray! Many of you may be wondering why I was so excited about using a spray toner, BUT I have never actually had one before, and I felt that it was a nice change. It makes my skin feel really refreshed and clean.

So all in all, I was really pleased with this months Glossy Box, mainly because it was so perfect for the colder months and I felt like they had really thought about which products to put in.

Ta-ra for now :)
