Review: Kryolan Highlighter Cashmere (for GlossyBox)

Among the products of the August Glossybox was a Highlighter made by Kryolan for Glossybox. I’ve used Kryolan products before so it was a product I was looking foward to using but I can’t say I was that excited that it was a highlighter.

Described as the perfect versatile highlighter cream that can be used on cheekbones, lips and other parts of the skin you wish to highlight. The lightweight formula makes it very wearable as once you’ve put it on you wont notice its there for the rest of the day.

I used this as a brow bone highlighter as well as on my cheekbones but you can also use in otherways such as your cupids bow. The product recieved was full size worth £12.95.

I love the kryolan highlighter itself, its definitely lightweight, great highlighter perfect for brow bone highlighting. The texture is smooth, takes minimal product to the job and gives you that wide awake look if you are running late. But at £12.95 its quite a steep price for the job it does when you can get similar products for cheaper. I guess it all comes down to how much your willing to spend on a highlighter. As I had it in GlossyBox, this product alone is almost the cost of the box itself.

Review: Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

In the August GlossyBox I received the Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer,  I couldn’t wait to receive this item as I heard so much about it before hand. It was a sneak peek item and I think its one everyone received. The rest of the box I found quite disappointing as it was just standard products so decided not to do a reveal on this particular box even if it was their birthday box.

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Review

The first thing that drew me to this product was that it was originally created specifically for screen icon Audrey Hepburn, who wouldn’t be intrigued by that, I am a huge fan of her films and her style so its almost like having a piece of her beauty knowledge to have a product that was designed just for her.

This pre-shampoo treatment gives unrivalled elasticity, manageability,  bounce and shine. All this without weighing down or coating your hair hair and it can be used by all hair types. Just wet your hair, add the treatment, sit with a towel or shower cap on your hair for 10-20 mins depending on your hair type and then shampoo and condition as normal.

I have never found a hair product that lives up to all it says it will do so perfectly as this product. With the first use their was so much vitality and movement to my hair. To the touch it was silky soft and still is numerous washes down the line. It works perfectly with the rockabilly, 50s look for curls with bounce and shine.

A definite buy and worth its cost as you’ll feel every inch the movie star. Full Size £ 38 for 250ml.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil Review- GlossyBox & She Said Beauty

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is an amazing product and I’m happy to finally be getting round to this review. I first recieved this product in my GlossyBox and was blown away with how well it worked. It lived up to what it said it would do without a doubt. DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is an amazing cleanser from Japan, it thoroughly dissolves dirt, excess oil and color cosmetics including your waterproof mascara as well as other pore-cloggers ordinary cleansers leave behind. Rinse it off with water and your done leaving your skin fresh not greasy.

“With skin this clean, your toners, moisturisers and other skincare products work even better to give you the youthful complexion you deserve. Discover the secret that Japanese women – known the world over for glowing, ageless skin – already know: Beautiful skin begins with DHC Deep Cleansing Oil.”

 

 

If your in need of a great make up remover then you need this, it takes your make up off your face at the end of the day with no fuss, no scrubbing and leaves your skin feeling beautifully soft and clean. There is nothing worse than waking up in the morning with make up clots in your eyes or panda eyes from make up that has refused to come off. You wont have that with this product and I know that for a fact as it I use it to remove my waterproof mascara as well as my other daily make up it really is a wonder product. She Said Beauty also sent out a sample of this in their September box so some of us are lucky to have another sample before we buy.
