Glamour Beauty Edit Box!

The only magazine I subscribe to and read regularly, and have done since I was around 13, is Glamour Magazine, which is always full of amazing editorials, fashion and beauty, so it follows that I would grab the opportunity to purchase a beauty box packed full of products picked by Glamour's lovely beauty editor with both hands.


IN THE BOX;
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil / £21.50 RRP
Various discounts

Firstly, I must apologise for the terrible quality of the photo above - unfortunately I had to use my phone camera, but it won't be happening again! Anyway, back to the box - and look at what a fantastic box it is! Not only the contents inside, but the actual box itself is beautiful, and I will be finding a place in my room to display it.

As for the products, what an amazing selection! As it is a summer-themed box, the three tanning items were very welcome additions, and although I've not used any of them yet, I just know I'm going to love the Rimmel "Skin Perfector", which aims to moisturise, brighten and blur any imperfections as well as providing a gorgeous glowing tan! The Velvotan mitt is hailed as the only tanning mitt to use, and you can't go wrong with a Hawaiian Tropic sun protection cream. A good start!

Onto makeup items, and I was over the moon to find an Illamasqua lipstick from their Glamore collection. However, although the formula was beautiful and application was fantastic, the nude shade was wrong for my skintone, only working to drown me out and make me look gaunt. Hopefully other people were happier with their lipstick shade. Other than that, I am a huge fan of the Bourjois Little Round Pot blushes, and I was happy to discover I didn't own the rosy tone of shade 02 already, and this has quickly become my favourite blush of the moment (review to come)! Lastly on the makeup front, I am incredibly impressed that the box included a full size Magnifibres Brush-On False Lashes (and a discount code for the next purchase!), and having used it a few times I am rather pleased with the results (again, review to come my lovelies).

Skincare-wise, everyone knows and loves the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, and this little bottle is perfect for makeup removal on the go. However, I have tried this oil in the past and wasn't too taken by it, but I am willing to give it another go before passing it on to my sister whose dry skin it works beautifully with! Overall, though, this is a great addition to the box because people really do swear by it.

In terms of hair products, I always look for things to boost the volume in my thick but limp hair and am often left disappointed, so I wasn't holding out much hope for the Toni & Guy Volume Plumping Whip. However, I was pleasantly surprised - in fact, that is down-playing it a little, I was actually ecstatic - to find that this whip works amazingly well at giving my roots a volume boost! I have used it every day since I got the box and every time I expect it not to work and it does! Yay! Full review on this product to come, but spoiler alert: I may be calling Holy Grail!

Lastly, we all love a good nail varnish, and this pretty pink Crabtree & Evelyn number has proven a real winner for me! It is incredible value at £6, providing a formidable gloss to the nail, as well as being chip-resistant and easy to apply. This is honestly the glossiest nail varnish I have used in a long time. Although normally I would opt for a brighter pink shade, this light pink is very natural and simply serves to brighten the nail, giving it a your-nails-but-nicer look which is perfect for work.

I think it's safe to say this box has been an absolute winner for me, and I am delighted with all of the products. At £16.95 you can't really complain!
