I hope you’re having a good weekend? I must admit I haven’t been having the best week so far. For some reason my anxiety has gone through the roof, and I unfortunately ended up in tears in a public place yesterday. It seems as though I’m fine until I have to do something outside of my comfort zone, then I fall apart. As soon as I was out of the situation though and got home I felt so much calmer, and as an added bonus the the latest Glossybox had also arrived. This was a welcome distraction so I got stuck in with trying out this months’ products…
So what’s inside the box?
- MeMeMe Enchanted Eyes Dual Ended Eye Wand in Midnight Storm. Full size worth £6.95
- Etre Belle Aloe Vera Ultra Moisturising Gel, 40ml full size worth £15.93
- Zerreau Towel Off Shampoo Foam, 70ml sample size worth £3.09
- Sass Intimate Perfect Skin Concentrate, sample size 30ml worth £3.60
- Collection Cosmetics Lipstick in Field Day, full size worth £2.99
Total value of box = £32.56.
First up is the MeMeMe Enchanted Eyes Pencil. This is a double ended eye crayon and the shade Midnight Storm has one midnight blue shimmer end, and one bright turquoise shimmer end. As well as being two products in one, this crayon also doubles up as eye liner and eye shadow, so it’s a complete multi-tasker! The shades are both easily blendable over the lid for a wash of colour, and also work really well as eyeliners too. I love the turquoise shade, I’ll definitely get a lot of use out of this!
Etra Belle is a brand I haven’t heard of before, they’re a German cosmetic company offering a selection of cosmetics and what seems to be a massive range of skincare. The Aloe Vera Ultra Moisturising Gel is a lightweight floral scented gel that’s formulated to cool and hydrate the skin. I think this would be perfect kept in the fridge and used for after sun.
The Sass Intimate Perfect Skin Concentrate is a bit of an interesting one. This is basically to prevent ingrown hairs when shaving your undercarriage 😀 It also acts as a post-shave soothing cream, and it reduces hair re-growth too. The exfoliating Salicyclic Acid and the Fruit Enzymes help prevent ingrown hairs, the Aloe Vera soothes and hydrates, and the Kelisoft helps to minimise hair regrowth.
The Zerreau Towel Off Shampoo Foam definitely caught my eye as one of the most interesting sounding products in the box. I’m a big fan of dry shampoos for those days in-between washing my hair but I haven’t come across anything like this before. This product is described as ‘the next generation of dry shampoo’ – allowing you to wash your hair without water. The product itself is a light and fluffy foam, which you massage in at the roots, and you towel dry your hair after. No water required! It’s also supposed to remove products including hairspray and hair chalk. Luckily enough for this review, I was due to wash my hair as it was looking pretty greasy! I applied a few squirts of this and massaged it into my scalp. It left my hair feeling really wet, like I’d just washed it, and the product also had a lovely fresh citrus scent too. It did make my hair feel cleaner and fresher, and got rid of most of the grease but not quite all of it. Maybe I should have used more product? I think this would be a great product to take to festivals to use between showers.
And lastly the Collection Cosmetics Lipstick in Field Day. I have to say I haven’t used Collection products in years, so this was definitely a welcome addition to the box. Field Day is a beautiful vibrant peach shade with a semi matte finish. This is the sort of colour that’s perfect for summer, and it would look gorgeous with a tan too. The only thing I will say though – as with most matte shades, is you’ll need your lips to be in tip top condition to wear this lipstick as it does tend to emphasise any dry areas.
I’d love to hear if you’ve tried any of these products? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
