Bonjour Beauties! July’s Glossybox comes with a French twist and it is very much loved by moi. A gorgeous looking box arrived promptly on Saturday morning so I may be a little late to the party, but better now than never. As always, testing out products before I provide mini reviews is how I like to do things around here. The box described as a “tour de force of favourite French finds”, promises to make us effortlessly stylish and gives us a healthy-looking complexion. I've put the products to the test, and here’s what I think.
Teoxane Cosmeceuticals Perfect Skin Refiner | £70
In short, it contains acid to resurface the skin and lessen irritation…so yeah it sounds weird, and I'm afraid it is. I didn't feel the mild tingling when applying it but after a few minutes this thing started to peel off of my face and it wasn't a nice feeling at all. No particular difference in my skin was noticed, but to be fair I only used it once. Perhaps this should be given a second chance (given how much this cost!!) but first impressions are important to me and I'm just not sold.
Lollipops Lip Balm Délicieuse | £4.15
The name says it all, this is a delicious French find! The consistency is just right for a lip balm and it is by far my favourite item in the box. It contains loads of vitamins and it protects your lips from sun damage, making it perfect for the summer and to keep it in your handbag at all times.
Yves Rocher Comme Une Evidence Eau de Parfum | £24.50
This scent remind me of my grandma, but not in a bad way! Love you nana <3 This feminine floral fragrance is subtle, yet long lasting. Mum loves it (I'm not the only who gets all excited when the box arrives) so it's all yours mummy :)
Noxidoxi Enhancing Serum Base | £33.46
You gotta love a good serum, and this has already become an important addition to my skincare regime. Its consistency is liquidy, and the colour not so pretty but it applies heavenly, and with special moisturisers and antioxidants, it promises to deeply nourish and protect the skin. Will let you know how I get on with it as I use it more often, but so far so good!
Glossybox Exclusive Travel Pouch | £3.99
Second favourite of the box
I am so cheap…sigh! The design is gorgeous and being transparent, this pouch makes it possible for us to take all of our beauty essentials through airport security with no issues. Already on my holiday checklist!
Et voilà! Glossybox did good with this one. The box itself is stunning and all of its contents are lovely (even though they are a tad small). I hear a lash primer is coming our way next month, so I am really looking forward to that!
Pleiins de bisouuux. Au revoir!
