Glossybox March - City Chic

Hiya Girlies!

So I actually received my March Glossybox on-time this month! Yay! This mad me happy! And I was so excited to open it! Probably because it's my birthday at the end of the month, and it felt like I was getting a present early!

I am going to London for my birthday as a treat from my boyfriend, (I know, hes a keeper!) And this will be my first time visiting London, so I am ridiculously excited! (I'm a complete city girl at heart!)
Therefore the city chic theme fits in perfectly for my month ahead!


Travelling to London by train and packing for three days, means I will have to be wise in deciding what to pack, and these minatures will be fabulous to take with me. Therefore this means that  I have decided to save them aside until then, but of course I have had a cheeky test, especially for you guys (honestly!) to let you know what I think about them.


TRESemme Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray

This hairspray has a great hold, putting all flyaways in their place! It brushes through well and has that trademark TRESemme smell! Its also the perfect size to pop into your handbag for nights out and of course an essential for travelling!

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Fragrance Free

I could not contain my excitement when I saw this product in this months box! I have wanted to try this multi-purpose cream for so long! But for some reason, I have never purchased it! Its also the perfect size to carry in your bag, especially for those much needed touch ups when you leave the plane/train/car!
So I couldn't help feeling let down when I actually tried the product! Not that the product itself doesn't work, i'm sure it works perfectly, but an important aspect of a product for me, (that can easily sway my decision towards one,) is smell! This product smells..well...a little off, and its supposed to be fragrance free! The smell gets a littler nicer once fully rubbed in, but I don't fancy something that doesn't smell great on my lips. Nevertheless, I am still going to head to boots this week and check out the frangranced version, as I am still keen to try the product out.

Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Lip Blush

I love lip sticks/stains/balms/glosses, you name it, if it's a lip product, you can guarantee i'll fall in love with it! This is a gorgeous bright pink, perfect for the summer and nights out. Unfortunately my lips are in poor condition at the moment, due to this ridiculously cold weather, so I cannot give a true opinion on this product untill they are in tip top condition. My initial thoughts were that it felt quite powdery and would be perfect to double up as a blusher! This I will be trying when I go to London!

Nails Inc Nail Polish in St.James


Being a nail technician, I usually have nail extensions or gel polish on my nails, but sometimes its nice to give them a break and apply a normal nail polish. This colour is a gorgeous pinky red, and when applying coats thinly, this dries really quickly. Its the perfect size to pop into your handbag for any touchups needed, and is the perfect colour to take away on holiday with you.

Juicy Couture - Couture La La

This Eau de Parfum Spray smells uh-ma-zing!It has a gorgeous elegant floral smell, and it stays with you all day! I will definitely be hinting to my boyfriend about this one for my birthday!

My Little Travelling Book


This month's fabulous freebie was thee cutest travel book! This could possibly be my favourite item in the box! It gives you a guide to thirteen popular destinations, from London to Toronto, including 3 top hot spots for each one, from bars to landmarks. It also includes nine travel related stickers which i will be using to decorate my notepad whilst on the train there.

Overall I loved this month's Glossybox! I Loved the theme, the product and the freebie!
