GlossyBox August High Flyers

Hi lovelies!
I can't believe we are half way through August!
I got my GlossyBox last week and I thought now I've tried everything, I would give a review!
This is what I got:

The first product I saw was the TRESemm√© Platinum Strength treatment.   It is full size and worth £1.49. I've actually used this treatment before and I really enjoyed it. I like the TRESemm√© Platinum Strength range and included them in my monthly favourites. I have dry hair from colouring so they provide much needed moisture in only 60 seconds (although I like to leave them on longer). Thanks Glossybox for saving me a trip to Boots! 

Would I recommend this product? Totally! If I hadn't received this in my Glossybox, I would've repurchased!

The second product is the only sample I received in this box. It is Viva La Juicy Noir by Juicy Couture. I have never tried any Juicy Couture fragrances but I really liked the smell of this. I am really rubbish at explaining smells but I think it's like a nice mix between night time and fruity. It's that nice I'm considering putting it on my Christmas list! The full size product ranges from between £34 and £62.
Would I recommend this product? I feel like I can't recommend a perfume as its such a personal thing but I'd definitely recommend giving it a smell if you're looking for a new perfume! 

The third item is a make up remover pen by Oceane. I've never used a make up remover pen before but it came in handy on a night out. It is a good item for using while you're out to fix any eyeliner smudges or fix any mistakes while doing your make up. Unfortunately, it is not available in the UK so when it runs out, it won't be possible to repurchase.

Would I recommend this product? I probably won't use this product much as I do minimal touching up during the day but if you're someone who likes this type of product, this is a good one!

The penultimate item I received was a Jelly Pong Pong 2-in-1 eyeliner and shadow pencil. The RRP is £10.50. I've used Jelly Pong Pong products in the past and have received the mascara in a previous box. I got a steely/grey colour and I think I see a bit of green? I can't decide. I probably won't use this as a shadow but as it is so creamy it makes a nice smudgey liner. It provides a good alternative for my usual black or brown liner. However, due to how creamy it is, it's not as long lasting as some of my 24/7 liners and liquid liners. It is a good product for mixing up my look though!

Would I recommend this product? I would, especially if you like the grungey look but I would probably recommend a different colour if you want to use it as a shadow too. 

The last item I received were eyelash curlers from Emite . The RRP is £20. I had mixed thoughts about this. I can't use eyelash curlers because I have lash extensions. However, I don't have a pair of lash curlers in my collection so they will come in handy if I have to take a break from lash extensions or decide to give them in (never). They seem quite light and easy to use! 
Would I recommend this product? Yes! Although I haven't had a lot of experience with eyelash curlers- there might be better and cheaper out there- I have no idea!

Basically, I've loved this box! I've heard some negative reviews about this box which I totally don't get. But if we all liked the same thing it would be boring.
I also really liked that the variations between boxes were minimal this month and I didn't feel I was missing out at all.
Keep it up GlossyBox!

I have just cancelled my GlossyBox subscription which I am very sad about. I will hopefully still get the September box but it won't be until the end of the month when I can afford it. 
BUT I will probably look at other people's reviews and get very sad I don't have the box then resubscribe mid month. 

Hope you're all enjoying August!
Lots of love from Lucy and Elsie


  1. Hey, I've just started getting the Glossyboxes and I really liked this months. I got one product different to you as I got a Purity cleanser rather than the tresemme. I definitely think the makeup remover pen will come in handy!

    p.s, do you have a bloglovin account or GFC so I can follow? I don't use google+ really

  2. I've just received my Glossybox, can't wait to start testing the products out. Your pug is adorable!
