Elegant Touch Rapid Dry for Nails.
Promising to have your nails touch-dry within 60 seconds this sounds like a perfect product for a girl on the go. I gave this a quick try with an Essie polish yesterday and it didn't really seem to make too much difference, but I've had a little look at reviews online and they seem to vary so maybe it depends which polish you use with it. If you're a regular late-night nail painter this could be a good thing to try and at £3 it's not going to break the bank either.

Yves Rocher Cocoa & Pistachio Hand Cream.
This hand cream leaves my hands feeling super soft & sinks in almost immediately. At first the scent is lovely with almost a hint of warm vanilla in there, but after a little while this fades and my hands are left smelling a little bit like a cabbage patch doll - that sounds insane I know, but do you remember the smell of cabbage patch dolls? It's not necessarily a terrible thing but I can't make my mind up whether I like the scent or not, it's a bit of an odd one! The product itself is lovely though and during the colder months I'm always reaching for hand creams.

Vichy is one of my all-time favourite skincare brands so I'm really happy to see these three 3ml samples of the Idealia Life Serum this month. This promises to help transform the appearance of skin quality, giving a more radiant and even-toned complexion. I used this for the first time yesterday, it gave me an instant shot of radiance and was a really lovely base for make up so my first impressions are positive. I'm looking forward to seeing if this makes a difference in the long term.

B. Complete Long-Lasting Nail Polish in Rainy Day.
At first I thought this colour wasn't my cup of tea because in the bottle it looks like a murky green (not usually a fan of green), but on the nails it seems to transform into a beautiful muted grey, perfectly suited to the name rainy day. This is one of those polishes that I could definitely get away with just applying one coat to give an even, glossy finish to my nails. This really pleasantly surprised me and I'll be heading down to Superdrug very soon to have a look at other shades in the collection as a little bit of inspiration for me to finally stop biting my nails!

This range of eyeshadows are free from oils, parabens and perfumes making them perfect for those with sensitive eyes and they're micronized (whatever that means - finely milled?!) to give an even application. This shade is a super pretty, slightly shimmery pale cream-white shade that really brightens so I think this will be a shade I use in the inner corners of my eyes to help fake that 'wide awake' look when all I really want to do is crawl back into bed! The only downside is I can't find anywhere to purchase these in the UK and they're pretty pricey, but it's nice to have this one especially in a shade I know I'll get a lot of use out of.

♥ ♥ ♥Overall this isn't my favourite ever Glossybox but I think they're heading in the right direction & they're definitely making a better first impression with the glossy magazine and nice product information card. The hand cream doesn't wildly excite me but it will absolutely get used up and the nail polish drying spray probably won't be something I reach for but I'll pass it on to someone I know will like giving it a try. The serum is the thing I'm most excited about using, I'm really surprised by how much I love the nail polish colour and the eyeshadow is a pretty shade I'll definitely use.
