Apologies for the lack of posts over the past week, but I’ve been struck with a rather unpleasant bout of tonsillitis. This has meant my throat swelling to unfortunate proportions, leaving me with a rather unsightly double chin. This, combined with the fact that my main attire of the week consisted of my most comfortable pajamas, has meant little motivation or occasion for any outfit posts. I am firmly on the mend though, and should be posting more regularly very soon!
Just in time for a nice pick me up, May’s Glossybox was delivered this morning. This month’s theme focuses on the Glossybox team’s recommendations and comes with a little magazine and a sweet pink notebook. Let’s have a look what was inside…
Note: As I’m living in Munich, I am receiving the German Glossybox. I will therefore be writing these reviews in German and English. The German version can be found under the cut.
Da ich zur Zeit in München wohne, bekomme ich die deutsche Glossybox. Daher werde ich diese Bewertungen auf Deutsch wie auch auf Englisch schreiben. Die deutsche Version könnt ihr lesen, indem ihr auf ‘Read More’ klickt!
Eucerin – Even Brighter Day Cream This day cream claims to visibly reduce hyper-pigmentation after just four weeks. It has a lovely clean smell and quickly absorbs into the skin, with no oily residue left behind.
Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics – Lip Blush Much like the Clinique Chubby Sticks and the Revlon Lip Butters, this claims to be a moisturising lip stain (also following an identical design). Applying like a balm and with great pigmentation, this could be a definite contender in the lip stain market.
Neutrogena – Body Balm with Nordic Berry This body balm is said to triple hydration levels of the skin. The balm absorbs into the skin quickly and has a lovely, pleasant smell.
Sans Soucis – Eye Shadow Refill The packaging of this product is a little disappointing, as it is clearly designed for a palette and looks a little cheap as a standalone eyeshadow. However, the colour payoff is generous and applies as a creamy neutral golden shade.
Sexyhair – Bigsexyhair Big Volume Conditioner Conditioning my hair often weighs it down and leaves it limp and heavy so this leightweight conditioner is perfect for finding a compromise between big hair and a silky, conditioned texture.
