Glossybox - Highfliers


For a while now, Glossybox has been so hit and miss! Some months you love, some you hate! Therefore I am always considering cancelling it and maybe switching to another, however this month I was surprisingly really impressed with my box! I originally subscribed to Glossybox as I wanted to try and discover new products, ones that I may not have heard of or haven't yet had the opportunity to try. However in recent months there have been lots of products that I have already tried and that are really well known, and although this is sometimes good, I'm usually not too impressed.

This month there were three brands I'd never heard of and although I had heard of the other two, I'd never used the products that I received, so this really excited me! Best of all, four out of five were full sized products!

So this months box is aimed at those travelling during the summer and to coincide with that, includes products from around the world!

Here's what I received this month...

Oceane Makeup Remover Pen from Brazil - Full size


This product aims to be a quick, on the go, makeup remover for any smudges or smears that need to be cleaned up quickly. I was so excited when I saw this product, as it is not yet available in the UK, meaning us Glossybox subscribers get a cheeky sneak peek before others, how exciting?! But I have to admit, I was left feeling a little bit disappointed; I thought this would be perfect for smudged eyeliner, but so far I've just smudged it even further when using this. I have only used it a few times, so maybe if I practice with it a little more, I will find that it does actually work well, because although I've not managed to work it with the eyes, it's pretty good at touching up lipstick smudges. 

So I'd still consider it a handy little accessory to carry in your handbag!

Jelly Pong Pong 2-in-1 Shadow/Liner from the UK - Full size


This eyeliner doubles up as a shadow, simply by blending, blending, blending. This is perfect for on the go, and will instantly take you from day to night, just apply eyeliner on the lash line during the day, and work some more into the outer corner of the eye for a night time smokey eye. I have been loving this product since I received it, and it has quickly made it to my everyday makeup routine.

A big thumbs up from me!

TREsemme Keratin Smooth Concentrated Treatment Shot from the USA - Full Size


This is a new treatment within the TRESemme range, and aims to restore weather damaged hair. Simply apply once a week after shampooing to damaged areas, leave for 60 seconds and then rinse. This is the only product in the box I have not yet tried out, simply because it's been in my Glossybox since I received it, and not in the bathroom within reach, but I love a good hair product and cannot wait to give it a try.

Emite Make Up Eyelash Curler from Sweden - Full Size


This eyelash curler is designed to suit all eye shapes and without touching the rest of your makeup. I saw a lot of subscribers complaining that these were in the box, however I couldn't have been happier! I had been looking for a good pair of eyelash curlers, and now I have some! These curl eyelashes really well, and although they are firm, they aren't sharp on the edge, like I have found some to be, so there isn't too much damage done if you accidentally get the edge of your eyelid, you know you've done it too!

Urban Veda Turmeric + Botanics Daily Radiance Facial Wash founded on ancient Indian principles - Sample


UrbanVeda is a new skincare range on the market, who have taken a holistic approach to taking care of the skin aiming to tackle problems such as environmental damage, naturally.
This smells absolutely amazing, however if you get headaches from strong scents, this may not be ideal for you. This product is gentle on the skin and removes makeup with ease, whilst leaving your skin soft and divinely scented afterwards.
