As we enter another new month (March, already?!) Glossybox bring us the 'city chic' box*.
I also love how they're dispatching them earlier in the month. It seems like less of a wait for them.
TRESemmé - Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray
£4.69 / 500ml
I've been on the lookout for a decent hairspray for a little while now. My Bed Head Mega Whip has a light hold so ideally needed something to keep it in place all day. Especially when it's super windy!
This is perfect for that with the extra hold. It also has humidity resistance which is great for when the weather heats up.
It doesn't seem to have that typical hair spray scent, it smells somewhat sweet. This is an all round winner for me.
Jelly Pong Pong Comsetics - Lip Blush - Cranberry
£12 / 2.5g
It seems every brand is jumping on the lip crayon trend just lately so this comes as no surprise.
Cranberry is a bright clean red that leans has a slightly warm base. I find when using red lip products with a more orange undertone, the fact it's paired with my hair which is very blue based, tends to pull the warmness out. Usually I don't really like warmer reds but this is something I can see myself wearing for spring.
It's a light formula but very opaque in colour with little work needed for such a good payoff. It lasts for hours without feeling dry on the lips and leaves behind a slight stain that's easily removed with makeup remover.
L'Occitane En Provence - Immortelle Precious Cream
£43 / 50ml
Apparently this cream has been clinically proven to reduce the look wrinkles and improve the general appearance of ageing skin.
It's a light cream with a slight fragrance, hard to put my finger on what exactly. It absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn't leave a tacky feeling behind.
As for it living up to the claims? I couldn't tell you that because my skin is not it's target audience.
Elizabeth Arden - Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant
£25 / 50ml
This is something that I've always heard people rave about but never had much interest of trying.
Let me start my saying the word 'cream' in the title is somewhat misleading, to me it's not like a cream at all. More like a very thick gel and a little bit goes a long way.
This little product is amazing. It helps with a number of different things, the main being combatting dry skin with ease after just one use. I used this on my hands and it did a wonderful job at clearing up dryness and relieving any sore spots.
I've added this to my Boots wishlist for future purchasing.
Nails Inc. - Nail Polish - Bruton St.
£11 / 10ml
I love Nails Inc. polishes and they've featured in Glossybox before. The mini bottles are super cute and handy for travelling.
Bruton St. is a dusky pink with a slight hint of mauve to it. It goes on easily and fully opaque in two coats. Gives a glossy shine and for me, Nails Inc. polishes always have good wear.
I really love the contents of this months boxes. Again, it's a good balance between skincare and makeup. Besides the L'Occitane I can see me benefitting from each item and I'll definitely be using them all._________________________________________________________________
