Beauty and the city
So a couple of days ago i received my very first Glossybox. It was the box for August but since i ordered it a bit late and the delivery was a bit late it did not arrive until now, September. So it is not really the Septembers Glossybox.
So what was my first impression of Glossybox in general?
I love it! It got delivered in a really cute pink box, that i will save for sure. And you open it up and it is just filled with these nice beauty products. I mean what is it not to like? And if the box would have anything that you don’t like, well just give it away as a gift and make someone else happy.
What did August Glossybox contains?
The Glossybox of August contained:
– A liquid lipstick from The beauty crop.
– A radient glow sheet mask from Beautaniq Beauty
– A liquid soap with Verbena oil from Natural care
– A Glo illuminator from Manna kadar cosmetics
– A pink metallic slant tweezer from Pick and Pinch
I have not been able to try everything yet. But the ones i have been trying so far is the face mask and the soap. And so far i am very happy with the products. The face mask made my skin feel really fresh and moisturized. I also learned a really good thing about face masks while reading about this one in the Glossy magazine.
If it says that the face mask is supposed to stay on the skin for 15 minutes, do not leave it on for much longer than that. Instead of moisturizing your skin it can start drying it out instead. Which make sense. Since all beauty products have active ingredients that starts getting old as soon as you opening the package, you should never use anything for too long since it will end up giving you the opposite result than you want. Well, you can read more about the lasting time of your beauty products here if you want.
With that said. If you are like me and love to keep the face mask pretty much longer on your face than it is recommended on the package, stop doing that. I will from now on.
The second product i have been testing so far is the soap with Verbena oil, and i really like it. It feels very soft and natural on my hands which is perfect since i have very sensitive hands. I am easily getting rashes on my hands when using too strong products and it is a pain in the ass to get rid off. So far this soap seems to treat my hands very nice, so i will keep you guys updated on that subject. I am sure there is more people out there than just me who has the same problem, lets help each other out!
If the rest of the products are good is still to find out. I will probably try out the make up later today, especially the lipstick since i am a real lipstick lover.
