It's that time of the month again.
This month Glossybox have teamed up with artist Maggie Li to create a cute designed box to house this months 'rising star' products*.
Sexy Hair - Spray & Play
£8.60 / 300ml
I've been using quite a soft hold texture product for my hair but on occasions I like something with a bit more hold.
This is a medium hold hair spray that gives volume, lift and shine. It gives a load more texture to my hair and holds through out the day and well into the evening. It doesn't give the hair too much of a crispy feeling and my hair still feels like hair. Sounds odd but some hair sprays don't feel so nice on the hair.
Balance Me - Wonder Eye Cream
£20 / 15ml
I've only used a couple of eye creams and never noticed if they made a difference or not. This says it reduces dark shadows and soothes tired eyes.
It has a lemony scent, it smells really refreshing. You only need a tiny amount, if you apply to much it leaves a really tacky texture on the skin and takes a while for it to sink in. This seems really nice and is something I'll be using to try and rid my tired eyes.
Rodial - Glamoxy Snake Serum
£127 / 25ml tube
This dubbed as a revolutionary product with instant results. It helps reduce the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles, of which I don't have any so I can't speak for how well this works.
Rodial - 5 Minute Facial
£35 / 50ml tubeI don't think these are the best value for money. One 1ml sachet barely covered half of my face so I ended up using both in one sitting. The website says it should be applied thickly but with these sachets it's hard too. Though it's available in a 50ml tube.
It's a clay mask that has an exfoliating texture. Once dried in you rub your fingers over it to remove the majority of it off and then rinse the rest off with warm water.
Olay - Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Complex
£29.99 / 50ml
I don't really have any use for anti ageing products right now. It's quite fragrant. It's a thick serum like texture, it seems lighter than a cream. Applying to the back of my hand it plumps out the lines and leaves the skin super smooth.
Lady Gaga - Fame EDP
£25 / 30ml
£32 / 50ml
£55 / 100ml
This something I've long awaited for since I love Gaga!
It's an unexpected fragrance. Unlike most fragrances it doesn't have the top, middle and bottom notes of a regular perfume. It has 3 accords - dark (Belladonna), sensual (honey, saffron and apricot) and light (Tiger Orchid and Jasmine Sambac). It's really hard to put into words but it's lovely. I think I'll be buying the 100ml for myself as a (dare I say it?!) Christmas present.
Overall this box didn't dazzle me. My favourite thing was honestly the Gaga perfume. I had a sniff of it whilst in a Boots last week. But as I wear perfume every single day I couldn't spray it on me to see how it developed, as I didn't want to mess with what I was already wearing.
All of the boxes this month seem a lot more skin care based.
It's crazy that the next box we get will be the October box, crazy! This year is going to quickly.
