Glossybox Breakdown - September 2014

Unboxing video

The box didn't come with the usual card describing all the products so I've done my own research.
These are the products I received in my September box.

1) L'Oreal Mythic Oil
'will leave your hair feeling beautifully tame, manageable and looking shiny'

This is a 45ml bottle which looks like a deluxe travel size. It would be perfect for trips away.
The 125ml bottle of this product is on Feel Unique for £13.60.

I use this oil on towel dried hair before blow drying and it helps make my hair really soft and shiny.
This does mean that I've been having to wash my hair more often than normal. Usually I get away with every 5-8 days but I've been having to wash it every 3 days.

2) Nivea Micellar Cleansing Water
'cleanses deeply, removes make-up and moisturises in one step'

This is on the Nivea website for £4.07 but almost everywhere on the high street is cheaper and it is currently on offer in Tesco for £1.99.

I had wanted to try a cleansing water for so long but was always worried about wasting my money on something that was just going to irritate my skin. A lot of the time, even the products that claim to be sensitive, bother me.
I have actually already used half of this bottle and I've got no complaints. Usually new skincare breaks me out but I've had no major issues with this. I may very well buy another when it runs out. Especially with how cheap it is.
I have found the best way to use this is to use a makeup wipe to remove my makeup and then go in with this water on a cotton pad to remove anything left and cleanse. It doesn't get all of my makeup off when used by itself.

3) Skin Pep samples
These are sample size sachets.
Brightening Enzyme & Acid Peel - 'targets dark spots & dissolves dead skin to leave exfoliated soft bright beautiful skin'

The full size product is 180ml and retails for £89.99(!!!)

Dark Circle Eraser - 'uses anti-oxidant ingredients to boost collagen in the delicate under-eye area'

The full size of this product is 15ml and retails for £44.99(!!!)

I can guarantee there's no way I'll be buying either of these. Those prices are ridiculous to me.

4) Model Co More Brows Fibre Gel
'Extend, reshape and thicken brows in an instant'

I've already misplaced mine (whoops) but I think we received the full sized product which actually retails for £14.95.

This is the perfect shade for my brows. I actually shaped one of my brows slightly too much recently so this has helped disguise my mistake until it grows back.

5) Nails Inc Matte Topcoat

This retails for £12.

This one product almost doubles the amount of nail varnishes you own. I love matte nails but I find that most of the shades available are at the darker end of the spectrum. This means that I can create some pastel matte looks for the coming seasons which I think will look great with a darker wardrobe. 

Big thumbs up from me. I was really impressed with this month's box :)
