Alessandro Pro White.
This is a nail polish with an anti-yellowing formula that promises to brighten your nails for a radiant white effect. This is one of the products I'm really looking forward to trying out. Since I stopped biting my nails I have been loving painting them super pretty colours and I'm often really lazy when it comes to base coats but I don't want my nails to turn yellow, so I'm hoping this Alessandro pro white polish will become my new best friend! As far as I can tell (I may be wrong) this is a full size product and retails at £7.85.
Valentina Assoluto by Valentino.
I'm never overly wowed by perfume samples unless it's a scent I already like because I'm super picky with perfumes. I'm not overly fond of Valentina by Valentino but luckily my mama is so this will be going to her and I know she'll love it just to pop into her bag. The full size 50ml is £61.
Vera Valenti L'ombre a Paupiere Margarita eye shadow palette.
On first impressions this looked quite nice, there's a nice selection of neutral shades but I'm super disappointed to say that the shadows themselves are really lacking in pigmentation and they feel a little chalky. I have to say this is the most disappointing product in this months box although it was a nice idea. This retails for £3.85.
Lipcote is a product that I've always heard about but never really tried. It is the original lip stick sealer and promises to be the secret behind smudge, feather, fade and kiss proof colour that lasts. I'm really intrigued by this product and I'm really looking forward to putting it to the test with my beloved Cherries in the Snow from Revlon. It has such a strong scent though, I'm half expecting it to sting a little when I first apply it! You can find Lipcote in Boots for £3.69.
GlossyBox Lipstick in Glossy Pink.These GlossyBox branded products are so cute, I keep the little mirror from a previous box in my bag all the time and this lipstick in the shade Glossy Pink looks really lovely. It promises a luminous, long lasting colour and I'm going to wear it this afternoon so I'll let you know how I get on with it!
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil.
I have saved my favourite product for last & I'm sure you all know how much I love skincare so I'm super excited to try this Cleansing Oil from DHC. It promises to be the best make up remover you've ever tried, unclogging pores leaving skin fresh and clean. I love that this is a really good 30ml size so I'll be able to get a good few uses out of it! The full 200ml size is £18.50 which I think is really affordable so if I like it, I can definitely see myself purchasing the full size very soon! They have a bunch of other products on their website too so I'm off to have a good nosey around!
Overall not one of my favourite boxes, the eye shadow palette was super disappointing, but I'm so excited about the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil and I think that makes the entire box for me!
