Its officially September and officially starting to feel like summer is well and truly over! Today I headed into Manchester to visit my modelling agency and have a casting and upon walking back to my car (thankfully not before!) I was literally DRENCHED in rain. So bad that I sent my boyfriend a picture and he literally asked if someone had thrown a bucket of water over me. (He’s getting some better weather in Austria whilst he’s working there for the day so wasn’t aware quite how bad the rain was!)
So after that experience I was so glad to come home and get into a snuggly jumper and open up my Glossy Box that I get so excited for each month. This is my 4th box now and I’ve never been disappointed! I’ve never posted a blog post on what’s been inside but this time I thought I’d share with everyone. I’ve had some bits that I literally use all of the time which brings me back to today’s rain – last month I got a SportFX setting spray which I used this morning and even through the rain my makeup stayed nice? Miracle. My other fav product so far is the Model.Co contour stick which has become a staple in my makeup bag and my professional makeup kit that I use on clients.
So, onto this months box:
Taylor’s 32 Natural Whitening Toothpaste
Of course I’m going from first impressions here as my Box only arrived today – but I’m liking the idea of this product! It’s a really big box which is always good, instead of a tiny little sample you can only use once or twice. This is full size! The only downside is that it’s Grapefruit and Mint flavour – I’m not sure how I feel about this? I’ve seen some people have just mint which I’m a little jealous of, but I’ve seen some have fennel and mint so I’m just glad I didn’t get that!
PIXI by Petra Brow Tamer
When I opened this up I said ‘mum let me try this on you’ as she had bare eyebrows and honestly it didn’t really do a lot. I think this will be good for top ups during the day and maybe when I’m styling a shoot and want a good bushy Brow but I personally prefer tinted Brow mascaras that leave a coating around the hairs making them appear thicker. I think another issue (well it would annoy me but maybe not others) is that this will be applied over the usual Brow pencil/gel/shadow which means if you dip back in, the gels going to get murky eventually. Maybe that’s just my own little dislike!
MONU SKIN Firming Fiji Facial Oil
For me, this sounds amazing! I love facial oils, espescially as the bad weather is approaching. A lot of girls will be afraid to try oils on their face through fear of getting spots but if you clean your face well and are selective with what oils you put on your face, you might find that your skin is really helped! Essential oils like Rosehip, and the two found in this product – Bois De Rose and Patchouli can work wonders on the skin! This smells beautiful and I can’t wait to try it.
Cetaphil Cleanser, Face and Body Moisturising Cream and Moisturising Lotion.
I love this cute little trio of Cetaphil products. Great for sensitive skin and the mini bottles mean I can pop them in my handbag to use on the go! I’ve never used Cetaphil products myself but I have heard of them and know people that swear by them for their sensitive skin.
STYLONDON Siligel Blender
This is the ‘Star’ product in this month’s box, but truthfully it’s probably my worst of the lot! I’ve used a silicone blender before and I just don’t really get it. Of course you dont lose your product like you can with sponges but personally it’s not worth it to compromise the blending finish! Of course a smooth base can be achieved with it but when you have back-to-back clients you don’t really have time to dab for hours to get a smooth base! I will definitly be sticking with my BeautyBlender but to be fair this could come in handy for applying skincare products.
I’m really happy with every product this month and i’m happy the iconic pink box is back! The packaging is unreal and for me, no other beauty boxes i’ve tried are near the quality of Glossy Box!
