I always look forward to the Autumn/Winter Glossybox boxes, as I always find that they’re really good boxes so I was excited to see what was inside the October Glossybox 2015. The box contains five full sized products this month which is amazing, and they’re pretty good ones too….
The first product inside the box is the Talika Photo-HydraDay Face Cream worth £24.85 which is described as being a deeply hydrating moisturiser which smoothes and re-plumps the skin.
The cream uses the energy from natural light through Talika’s Hydra Photo Beauty to deeply moisturise and hydrate the skin whilst Lipopeptides soothe the skin and Hyaluronic Acid creates an effective water reservoir within the skin cells and plumps the skin for a rejuvenating and youthful effect. I’m looking forward to trying this moisturiser as it sounds ideal for my dry and dehydrated skin, and it’s lovely and lightweight from the first few times I’ve tried it so far.
Then there is the Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Curl Mascara worth £17.95. Described as a sculpting, curling mascara that continually curls lashes throughout the day with a unique synthesis of Moringa Seed resin that dries down and holds the curl of lashes for long-lasting results.
Jelly Pong Pong (and So Susan who also feature in this month’s box – they’re sister brands) features in beauty boxes quite often, but I’ve never had this mascara in a box before luckily. I like the look of the brush, as it’s a natural bristle wand with lots of bristles which seem to work well with my lashes.
The So Susan product is the So Susan Haut Light Highlighting Pencil worth £15, which looks very similar to Benefit High Brow Highlighting Pencil. It can be used anywhere on the face to add a pretty highlight, such as the cheekbones, browbones and cupids bow.
Next there is the Lanolips Golden Ointment worth £17.99, which is a multi-purpose balm which intensively moisturises the skin for long lasting comfort. It contains Ultra Pure Medical Grade Lanolin nourishes and heals skin, leaving it soft and healthy, whilst vitamin E enhances blood circulation in the skin.
The balm can be used all over the body and is super gentle, and is even suitable for newborn babies. I expected the balm to have a scent, but it’s completely free from fragrances, colour and impurities. I imagine I’ll get a lot of use from this balm over the colder months, and it’s a really generously sized tube so I think it’ll last for a very long time.
The last item in this month’s box is the Nicka K Airbrush Blending Sponge worth £6.50. I love using blending sponges like this for my foundation, as I find they’re a lot more forgiving on my dry patches than a typical foundation brush. This sponge has an hourglass shape to it with a rounded base, and pointed tip and it feels like any other blending sponge to be honest but it’s definitely something I’ll get a lot of use out of.
So they’re the items inside my October Birchbox 2015. What is your favourite item this month?
