My August 'Highflyers' Glossybox

Hello Lovelies, 

I saw some posts and tweets last weekend about what people had received in their August Glossyboxes, so before mine arrived I had an idea of what might be inside and I was looking forward to it arriving. Mine arrived on Tuesday and I thought I would share with you what I got. 

The Theme for this month's Glossybox is Highflyers and the products inside were chosen 'for the girl on the go' and they are from different places around the world, including the USA, Sweden, the UK and Brazil. The box wasn't a special one and was just the usual pink colour, with black tissue inside. 

Here is what I got this month.....

TRESemme Platinum Strength 60 Second Treatment Shot - 15ml
This is a rinse off treatment that should be used once a week or more if you feel your hair needs it, that claims to 'transform frizzed out and fried hair'. I haven't tried one of these before, but I was really pleased to see this, because my hair has felt a bit dry and heat damaged recently and this will be a lovely treat for it. This isn't a very big tube and because I have got quite long hair it will probably only last for one use, so it would have been nice to receive a bigger tube or a couple of them, but the tube I received is a full size one that retails at £1.49. 

Emite Make Up Eyelash Curler 
I use eyelash curlers everyday and the Glossybox Leaflet says these have been developed with professional make-up artists and I am looking forward to trying these. These are black and red and they come with three replacement rubber bits which I was impressed with. 

Jelly Pong Pong 2-in-1 Eyeliner & Shadow 
I received a Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush in a previous Glossybox and love it, so when I saw this inside I was really pleased. It is 'creamy 2-in-1 crayon' that can be used as an eyeliner or as an eyeshadow. It doesn't seem to have the name of the shade on the pencil, but from looking at Jelly Pong Pong's website, I think this is Plum. I will try this although I am not sure how much I will use this shade and I saw some people got these in black, which I think I would have preferred. 

Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm - 40ml
I have not tried anything from this range before and didn't know much about it. The Glossybox Leaflet says this is a 'multi-purpose balm' and is a 'cult product in the US'. This is fragrance free and has quite a greasy texture, so I think you could only use this on really dry skin. My hands do tend to get quite dry in the winter, so I will probably use this then. 

Oceane Makeup Remover Pen - 3 ml 
This product is not available in the UK at the moment and I haven't heard of this brand before. The packaging says this can be used to remove excess makeup from around your lips and eyes and the tip of the pen 'contains a liquid makeup remover' 'that does not dry out the skin'. I have not used anything like this before, but I will give it a try. 

Overall I was quite pleased with what I received this month and the sizes of the products, although some people did receive UrbanVeda products and I would have liked to try those.
