Hello everyone, as you can see, I`m back to regular posting! And this time hopefully for good, because we found an apartment and we can move next week. To be honest, it`s not my ideal spot, I still want to find a nice house with a garden, but for the moment, this will do. A few weeks ago when we had to move, we had nowhere to go, so we`ve been staying with friends, but it was hard not having your own place. I know I wanted to blog all month and I even have 20 posts in drafts, but the situation affected my mood and I gave up on the idea. I plan to use those posts soon, though, so stay tuned.
Moving on to this month`s Glossybox, it`s been a while since a beauty box got me so excited. I think that has something to do with the theme, VIVE LA FRANCE. I love french culture and Paris is one of my favourite cities in the world, so the theme was a treat to me. French women are known for their flawless skin and simple, but effective skincare regime, so the content of the box is directed at that.
The first item that got my attention is the Lollipops Lip Balm. It has a cute and feminine pink packaging and we all know I`m a sucker for a nice design. It contains antioxidant and Vitamin E, to soothe and soften your lips. Not only that, but it also has UV protection, which makes it the perfect lip balm for summer.
Inside the box, there were 2 skincare products, the Enhancing Serum Base from Noxidoxi and the Perfect Skin Refiner from Teoxane Cosmeceuticals. I`ll be honest, I`ve never heard of these brands before, but the products sound really interesting. Especially the serum caught my attention because it promises to hydrate the deeper layers of the skin while a mix of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories protect the skin. I tested it twice, felt really lightweight on the skin, so I`m curious to see the results. The Skin Refiner sounds a bit scary because it has glycolic acid to get rid of the dead layers of the skin, but it also has hyaluronic acid and calming ingredients, so I hope it won`t be that harsh on the skin.
I had a full-size Comme une Evidence Eau the Perfume 2 years ago and I loved wearing it in the summer, it had such a lovely musky floral scent. The main ingredients are violet leaves, rose, lily and patchouli. This is a 7.5 ml sample, which I`ll take with me when I go on my holiday.
The last item in the box was a very lovely travel pouch and it will sound quite sad, but it`s my favourite item. The design is very chic and feminine and I love the fact that it`s clear, so you can see inside it. Not only that, but it closes with a zip, which makes it more secure for travelling. Again, this will go with me on my holiday.
