November 2012 Glossybox

It's that time of the month again......Glossybox! :o) 

This months Glossybox is 'Stocking Fillers' and its aim is to serve as an inspirational gift guide.  I have to say I've been getting Glossybox for a Year now and this has to be the best so far, also sadly the last one I will be buying as I find I only use a few of the products each month.

What's in my last box;
  • Ayuuri - Sandalwood Face Cream - I've not used this yet as I get a bit worried using new face creams. Looking at reviews other people are very happy with the product saying "it makes your skin soft and it smells nice".
  • Burberry Body Eau de Parfum - It has topnotes of peach, green absinthe and freesia. Personally I see it as a little sophisticated, but also nothing particularly special. 
  • Alison Claire Natural Beauty - Mango Body Butter - This smells amazing, sweet just like Mango.  It's thick body butter that has so far left my skin feeling lovely and smooth.
  • Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Top Coat - I'm not a big lover of top coats, I always find they make your nail varnish chip off quicker.  The polish is nice and although rose tinted applies clear to the nails, drying nice and quickly. Not particularly exciting, but certainly useful. 
  • Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant - I've used this a few times before it's a microexoliant powder product infused with rice enzymes. You mix with a little water and massage into the face. Despite the unusual format I got on with it really well and my face felt so clean after using!

MAC Shadestick - Butternutty & Tundra

A friend at work was selling discontinued MAC makeup at work and I couldn't be there quick enough! I picked up two Shadesticks from the MAC Me Over collection that was released back in August 2011.

Butternutty is a warm beige with a hint of peach. It has a frosted finish and Tundra is a bright silver with a metallic finish.  Shadesticks are twist-up eyeshadows that can be worn alone or as a base. They are more like a cream eyeshadow than a powder, but the formula does set quickly and dry down so it wears well on its own.

Lush FUN Pink

On one of my many trips to Lush I came across their newest product FUN,  10p from each sale of FUN goes to help children affected by the Fukushima disaster in Japan.  It's a multipurpose product which you can use as a bubble bath, soap, shampoo, or to hand wash your clothes.

It comes in five different colours and scents; 

1. FUN Pink - Jam packed with the fruity, candy smells of childhood.
2. FUN Blue - Relax and feel ready for sleep when you wash with this mix of lavender, Moroccan chamomile and chamomile blue essential oils. The perfect bedtime bath.
3. FUN Yellow - Creamy vanilla tones evoke thoughts of seaside ice creams, granny's baking and home comforts.
4. FUN Green - A citrus burst of tangy lime and lemon essential oils will wake you up, keep you feeling fresh and focused and help you play for hours.
5. FUN Red - Mandarin and orange essential oils will make you think of sunny orange groves and freshly squeezed juice. Brings a bit of summer sun to your bath and play time.

As you can see I've picked FUN Pink, I used a little bit in the shower.   It's great, it creates a thick creamy lather all over the body. Work up a lather in your hand. They're certainly more moisturising than regular shower jellies and a lot less slippery.

Lush FUN is available online and in store  £5.00 each.

Lush Cinders

Lush 'Cinders' is a gorgeous Christmassy limited edition bath ballistic with cinnamon, sweet orange and almond oils and popping candy.  Lush say 'A ballistic to evoke sitting by a crackling open fire, drinking a glass of warm punch.  A real Christmas time ballistic that fights the chill and brings peace and comfort. Lie back, letting the water support your body, and listen to the fire as the smell of warm fruit punch fills the room.'

It smells amazing, very much like cinnamon but not quite so strong. I also love the popping candy element, it adds a bit of fun to your bath. It leaves your skin smelling amazing all day and also leaves it feeling very soft and smooth just like all Lush products. 

Lush Cinders is available online and instore £2.25 each.
