It’s always a lovely post day when my Glossybox arrives.
Essence Lash Princess Mascara
Glossybox have sent me an Essence mascara before, a few months back. It was okay, but I wasn’t completely wowed by it. I am however, wowed by their cheap prices. This mascara costs £3.30! Yes, really! What a bargain! I’m quite pleased with this. It’s got a good, thick wand and it leaves my lashes looking volumised and lifted without making them look like spiders’ legs.
Another plus point was that there was minimal smudging under my eyes, which, if you’re a regular reader, will know is one of my biggest bug bears. The only negative I’ve found with this is that the wand felt a tad ‘sharp’ upon application.
Sleek Pout Paint
I’m becoming quite a fan of the Sleek range, but haven’t tried any of their lip products yet. I received this in shade ‘Peachy Keen – 156’ – which is quite a bright orangey-coral colour.
‘Pout Polish is a tinted lip conditioner that nourishes and feels like a lip balm, whilst providing the look and colour of a subtle gloss’
It is really pigmented, but I’m really not keen on the shade as it’s a bit too orange for my skin tone. It just doesn’t really suit me. However, I’m impressed with the high pigmentation that this has to offer and the fact that a little goes a really long way! One thing that I really love about Sleek is that their products are high quality, but also reasonably priced. This product retails for a mere £4.49!
Naobay Moisturising Peeling
When I read the description of this on my card, I wasn’t quite sure what is was… Is it a face mask? Is it a moisturiser? Is it an exfoliant? No idea, so I had to Google it.
Apparently, it’s an exfoliating face peel. Naobay say:
“Facial milk with natural peeling particles from the Acai palm tree. This face peel gently exfoliates the skin, removing surface cells and impurities. It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines by combining Olive oil, Shea butter and Sweet Almond oil with Gotu kola extract that soothe the skin after the peel. 98,82% of the total ingredients are from natural origin. 29,1% of the total ingredients are from organic farming.”
I haven’t had to chance to try this out, as my skin’s in an awful state at the moment; but a full review of this will be up once I’ve tried it!
NCLA Nail Polish
Again, I haven’t tried this yet, but expect to see it popping up in a Mani Monday post sometime soon!
Dove Youthful Vitality Shampoo & Conditioner
Right, so these are anti-aging hair products. Not quite sure what you’re trying to say there, Glossybox… I’m only in my early twenties. Having said that, I really love the scent of Dove hair products. I used it anyway, and it made my hair lovely, clean and soft. Not sure it looks any younger though…
