This month's Glossybox is all about Hero products from around the globe. I really like Glossybox's themed boxes and this ones a winner - following the Olympics. I actually got this Glossybox for free, as I had collected enough Glossydots from giving feedback of past products and recommending friends to the service. So I was more than pleased to receive the contents of this box.
Alessandro - Pro White, 10ml £7.85 - I don't really suffer from discolouration in my nails, but this is a really handy product to receive. This is an optically brightening effect nail polish. I am yet to try out this but have heard good things about it and apparently leave your nails radiant white and gleaming. So I will be reaching for this next time I do my nails.
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, Fullsize 200ml  £18.50 - This is a product that I am most intrigued about. This cleansing oil is a water-soluble cleanser that is apparently better than any other make-up remover. I have never really used any oil base cleansers, So I'm looking forward to using this in my skincare routine. I have heard people rave about this product, so lets hope it meets expectations. This is also a good-sized sample.
Broadway Nails - Impress Press-on Manicure, Fullsize 24 Nails £7.99 - I'm so pleased I received these in my box, I have been wanted to try them ever since I saw they were stocked in Boots. I never caved because I thought I would only wear them if I was going to an occasion and not for every day use. I'm also pleased with the colour that I received, definitely something I would choose myself. I can't wait to try these, I have read reviews stating they don't last as long on the nails, but I think it's a really great idea. Hopefully they will be quick and easy to apply.
Vera Valenti - L'ombre a Paupiere Margarita, £3.85 - This is the one product in the box that I'm not sure on. I'm not really one for green eyeshadow. When I received my box, one of the green shades was smashed, which didn't really give me a high expectation of the quality of the shadows. Swatching the colours, the green shades are much more pigmented than the Brown ones,  I think I will be using this palette for maybe eyeliner or to fill in my eyebrows, the concept of the product is nice though.
Lipcote - Lipstick Sealer, 7ml £3.99 - I have always heard good things about this product, but never felt the need to buy it. It's great to just chuck in your handbag though and apply when you want your lipstick to last that little bit longer. It hasn't got the nicest smell to it, but I like the application. It will be a life saver though, for when your out eating and drinking and don't want to keep applying make up.
Glossybox Lipstick - Glossy Pink, 4g £9.50 - This was an added bonus in the box this month. I love the colour of the lipstick, such a nice everyday pink shade. The quality is also really good, and is long-lasting on the lips. I'm not sure I would pay £9.50 for a Glossybox lipstick, but it's nice to have in my collection, and a colour that would suit a lot of people.
I am really happy with my box this month, and think there is a mixture of products to suit everyones taste. Were you pleased with your box this month? What were your favourite products?
