May GlossyBox – Unboxing & Review

I hope you guys are enjoying the new content of my blog, if you haven’t already seen the new additions then go have a look round (after reading this post).

I loved everything about the April Glossybox and hopefully I’ll have some reviews going live soon but I wasn’t planning on getting until I saw I’d reached my 1000 glossydots. For those that aren’t already members, for every product you recieve in your box you get a survey and for each survey you complete you recieve glossydots. You can only recieve and use your glossydots when you have an active subscription.  So I’ve reached 1000 which means I can get a free box,
which I’ve used to get my May glossybox.

If you don’t want to know what is in the box or if your waiting for your own then it’s time to look away. If your too curious then take a look at what I recieved:

MEMEME – Enchanted Eyes Dual Ended Eye Wand
From what I read I think everyone will have one of these in their box. Blue is a key look for spring and this dual-ended eyeshadow stick has two blue tones to offer. I don’t wear blue so this is going to be new for me but I’m willing to give it a try. It is a full size product worth £6.95.

Etre Bell – Aloe Vera Ultra Moisturising Gel
The perfect product for prepping your skin ready for summer and an instant rescue when your skin needs something more than your normal moisturiser. A gel that cools while delivering moisture deep below the surface of the skin and reviving your completion as well as a post-sun savior. Another full size product worth £15.93 which already takes us over the cost of the box with delivery.

Zerreau – Towel Off Shampoo Foam
Now this has my attention, classed as the next generation of dry shampoo, this apple scented beauty allows you to wash your hair with the foam formula and towel dry it off (no need for water). Could it really be that simple?
Not a full size product but full size product is worth £7.95.

SASS – Intimate Perfect Skin Concentrate
I love these products when they actually work, I use to buy the Avon one but anyway. Described as a little treat for your skin post-shave or wax, this soothes your skin, reduces hair growth (woohoo), while exfoliating ingredients ensure no more ingrown hairs. Not a full size product and I don’t know if this is enough to trial but will definetly give it a go. Full size product £12.

Philosophy – Renewed Hope in a Jar refreshing & Refining Moisturiser
Endorsed by celebrities and top dermatologists this moisturiser is world-renowned for its skin enhancing qualities. It’s loaded with antioxidants which a unique  soufflé texture. It is said to reduce the appearance of lines, discolouration and uneven texture. Leaving you with a complextion that is hydrated, radiant and looking healthier than ever. Not a full size product but still looking forward to giving it a try although I’m not sure if the sample size will last long enough to give it a fair test. Full size is worth £35.50.

Overall a really good box this month and I’m looking forward to trying all the products. I usually prefer a box with a lot more make up but this time I like the range of products that have been put together and will happily test them.

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.

GlossyBox August Birthday Box

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.

Kroylan Highlighter Cashmere

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.
