August Glossybox 2012!


It's that time of the month again!!  Here's what I got in my August Glossybox!  This month's box is called "International Superstars", which features products from around the world.  As always I'm excited to try new things and different brands I haven't heard of or used before so I think this concept is quite cool!


So what's in my box?

Alessandro Pro White 
This is a clear nail polish/base that claims to whiten your nails and get rid of yellow staining.  Definitely something I'm interested in trying out as yellow nails are a huge pet peeve of mine!  When I used to keep my nails long and unpainted they were so white and pretty but unfortunately with regular polish they always get a little stained (especially if they're longer :( )

Valentino Valentina Assoluto Eau de Parfum
I haven't even smelled this yet...ha ha oops!  It looks quite nice though and I'm happy to try it out and let you guys know what I think next month!  

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil 
This hails from Japan and claims to be an amazing make-up removing oil.  You're supposed to apply it to dry skin with dry hands and just let the oil do its job at removing all the make-up, dirt and well..grime from your face...ha ha!  I'm really interested in this, I hope it's good!

Vera Valenti L'ombre a Paupiere Margarita
This is the only product in this month's box that I was a bit "meh" about.  Although at first glance, this eyeshadow palette looks cool they don't seem like very exciting shades that I would use or pick out myself.  Oh well...we shall see! 

Lipcote
This is a lip product that looks like a nail polish and is supposed to seal your lipstick/gloss and make it last longer.  I had heard of this product before but never tried it and I'm curious to give it a go!  I think that if this really works it could be a great product...I hate having to reapply lipstick all day long!


Glossybox Lipstick in Glossy Pink
This looks very pretty and shows up as a rosy/neutral pink when swatched.  I can't wait to try this!  

Onto my review of last month's July Glossybox!  Here are my thoughts: 


HD Brows Eye & Brow Palette in Vamp
Pros: Amazing pigmentation, compact, great staying power, surprisingly matches virtually any skin/hair colour.
Cons: None!  Originally I thought the dark brown would be too dark for me as a blonde but it worked really well!


Jelly Pong Pong Lip Frosting in Irish Cream Pavlova
Pros: Pretty Barbie pink lip colour, smells/tastes amazing, nice formula (not sticky).
Cons: The colour is a little out of my comfort zone as it's quite bright and I tend to favour neutrals but I received a lot of compliments from you guys when I wore it in a video so maybe it's a sign I should branch out!

Clynol Salon Exclusive Enrich Colour Shampoo
Haven't used it yet.  Will probably do so whenever I'm travelling or possibly even pack it in my hospital bag.

Monu Golden Glow
Haven't used it.  I'm a little scared to!  My Dove Summer Glow works so well, I don't want to ruin a good thing :)


Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Lotion SPF 15
Pros: Lightweight & hydrating.  Very refreshing on the skin, non-greasy formula, perfect for my skin type (oily/combination).  Didn't break me out!
Cons: None (too little product in there...I couldn't get enough of it! :)

Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Line
I still haven't gotten a chance to use the Skin Balancing Exfoliating Cleanser or the Optimizing Skin Serum however I did see this line being promoted in Debenhams and I'm eager to check out the full size versions of these products judging by how well the moisturiser worked for me!  This is what I love about Glossybox...I never would have tried this if it weren't for them!

If you'd like to sign up to Glossybox you can do so for £12.95 a month here.  They do ship to Ireland and now also to the US.  If you do subscribe to Glossybox and you also received this box, let me know what your thoughts are!  As always, I would love to hear from you guys :)

Stay Stylish!
