What's in my Glossybox? August 2014 - 3rd Birthday Box

*I started this post  a week ago - before I came down with flu, so it's a bit late but I just had to finish it*

I do love my beauty boxes so I'm rather sad to say that this will be my last Glossybox - heartbreaking to be finishing on its third birthday. I'll still receive one beauty box a month and I've decided to go with Birchbox. I will also be receiving another box, just not a beauty box, something different and not exactly for me so you'll have to wait and see what it is.

I'm glad to say we're at least parting on good terms and leaving on a high, this box isn't a disappointment so at least I'll remember them fondly. So what did I get? It's all after the cut!

Kryolan for Glossybox Highlighter in Cashmere 4.5g (Full size: £12.95 for 4.5g )
A lovely cream highlighter leaving a glossy finish it's perfect for use on the cheeks, nose, top lip - anywhere you would like to highlight - personally I'm going to try this on my eyelids instead of eyeshadow. A generous full size helping to try.

Figs & Rouge Mini Hand Cream in Roseberry 20ml (Full size: £6.95 for 80ml)
I have a lip balm from Figs & Rouge but I didn't even realise they did hand creams. The tubes remind me of L'Occitane hand creams which have always been lovely although I'd say the design here is slightly more youthful. It smells lovely and I can imagine these making perfect gifts.

Yves Rocher Pink Nail Varnish 3ml (Full size: £3.60 for 3ml)
I've only just purchased some Yves Rocher nail varnishes to try out but not on this colour so it is a welcome addition. A very versatile daytime pink. It's a tiny pot but I do find it hand to have some that I can actually use up. 

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer (Full size: £28.00 for 150ml)
Now this is new to me, amazingly it was created specifically for Audrey Hepburn so it's been around for as long as I have so I've just missed this type of product. It's a pre-shampoo treatment promising some miracles, bounce, shine manageability while still being light. I'm really looking forward to trying this. 

Lalique L'Amour Eau De Parfum (Full size: £67.00 for 50ml)
Now I've already found more new perfumes than I need this year but I'm very happy to try yet another one. A very sexy but light scent, the type you could consider a signature scent.

[Comfort Zone] Essentials Cleansing Milk (Full size: £20.00 for 250ml)
I've not heard of this brand but as I'm trying to up my game in the skincare routine I love trying new products out to fit into my routine. I already have a few must use products but I'm looking for something to use after removing my make-up but before working out so this will fit in nicely. 

A great last box for me, I may return in the future but for now the money is going to something else.
