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!

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 🙂
