Glossybox September 2014

This months glossybox was designed by the fashion brand Karen Millen in honour of London Fashion week; named London Skyline Box. 
The box contains 5 products; 2 Full size and 3 Sample size. It also comes accompanied with a £25 off voucher at Karen Millen when you spend £150 in-store. 

The box itself is gorgeous (as always) it is again, similar to August box matte however the london landmark design you can see is glossy, making it obviously stand out in texture and look. A lovely little box to add to the glossybox collection. 

The contents are tied with a white ribbon this month and opens up to a lovely selection of products. 

ModelCo More Brows Fibre Gel, 3.5ml - RRP £14.95
A small little product with a large importance - a fantastic must have for all beauty lovers. With brows so big in fashion at the moment it is no wonder that so many beauty makers are producing these little brushes. 
The brush is tiny, making it easy to shape and fill in your eye brows without getting the tinted gel everywhere. On application the gel is wet however, it quickly dries and holds your brow hairs in place for hours. 
Perfect size for easy application, travel friendly and more importantly perfect for making those brows perfect all day long. 

L'Oreal Professionnel Mythic Masque, 75ml - Full size £15.50 for 200ml

A nice sized sample of this hair masque, that works a little differently to some of those others I have used. It is to be used after you have washed your hair and towel dried your hair, you then apply the masque for 3 minutes and wash out again. 
I look forward to trying this product out on my next pampering night, with the winter weather upon us products like these are brilliant treats for our hair. May I add this product smells delicious! 

SkinPep Enzyme and Acid Peel - 
- Peeling Gel = £3.05 3.5ml 
- Eye Cream = £6.49 2ml

Exspensive samples alone let alone the full size products. However I enjoy getting these kinds of example, it's good to know exactly how the product is on your skin before paying £40+ for these Skincare essentials. 
I look forward to trying these out, especially the eye cream which is supposedly meant to erase dark circles. Whereas the peeling gel acts as a exfoliater, leaving skin soft and bright. 

Nails inc Westminster Bridge Matte Top Coat, £12 for 12ml

The second of the two full sized products in this box; a matte top coat. Giving women the chance to make any, yes ANY nail polish matte. 
With everything matte so hot right now it is no wonder this little beauty found it's way in the glossybox. A lovely little extra that is actually award winning. 
I can't wait to try this out!!!

Vichy Normaderm Night Detox and Hydrating Care

Tiny 3ml samples however, this is a very well known skin care brand that can be used to target adult blemishes - a cream we all need from time to time. 
I especially like how both the day and night cream are provided here. Again, another product I wouldn't normally buy due to the high price tag, it's always good to start with a sample!

A good box this month, packed with some lovely treats and great samples to try. I especially love the box itself this month, but I'm obsessed with London so this fantastic to me! 

Another delight this box comes with is a sneak peak into next months box. Interestingly, Glossybox havnt done this before which is a shame because I like the hints they offer online so I was especially pleased to see this. 
The sneak peak card provides that the October Glossybox is going to be a Andy Warhol inspried Pop Art Box; which will be available in green,yellow,red and blue - so every reader will receive 1 of the 4 variations ! A nice little gimik to think about for next month. 

Furthermore, next month every reader will revive a full size (50ml) Nuxe Masque Creme Fraiche de Beaute - which is a hydrating face masque worth £19.50.
