Glossybox August 2012

'International Superstars' was the theme this month, celebrating beauty products from various places around the world, tying in with recent Olympic events, although of course this was celebrating sporting 'superstars' from around the world rather than beauty!

Alessandro Pro White (Germany) - A blue tinged polish to brighten nails & take the yellowness away. I don't particularly get stained nails, but I applied a coat of this to one nail & actually I could see a difference. My nail tip definetley appeared whiter & in general looked a healthier colour, I'll probably use this quite alot as a base coat.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil (Japan) - I'm a little bit scared to use this, because I'm worried it will make my skin really greasy as it's an oil! Has anyone tried this yet!? It would be nice if it lived up to glossy's claims of it being better than any other makeup remover you've ever tried!

Eve's Balm - Forever using lipbalms so I know I'll get use out of this product. The smell reminds me of Figs & Rouge Rambling Rose a little. The packaging pleased me too, it's really soft, (not sure what it is!) & there is a handy little mirror.

Vera Valenti (Spain) - Kind of unsure about this product, it looks like something from the 90s and the green eyeshadows really don't appeal to me...

Lipcote (UK) - I've been told using a lipstick sealer is great, but I've never really thought about investing in one, so I'm glad this was included as I can finally test it out! I've heard the taste isn't too nice though & the smell is awful!

Glossybox Lipstick in Glossy Pink - A little bonus product, didn't think the colour would suit me, but I tried it anyway & was surprised at how lovely it actually is, thanks glossy!

The box this month was SO much better than last month, which I was massively disappointed with. I'll get use out of most of these products & I'll probably give the eyeshadows to my little sister if I don't get along with them.

What did you think of this months Glossybox?
