Glossybox: November Edition!

Heyy guys!
So my November Glossybox arrived last week! I've been testing out the products the last few days and I decided to tell you what I think!
I wasn't super impressed with the October box.. I was pretty bummed with it so I was a little worried this month's wouldn't be that good.. I was PLEASANTLY surprised!
I'm absolutely loving this month's box!

Vichy Idealia Life Serum: This was the first product that caught my eye! Very cute little packaging and nicely presented! However, they are VERY small. I received 3 mini samples of 3ml so altogether you go 9ml of product! This is a serum you put on before makeup that works as a smoothing & illuminating primer! It is very nice on the skin, very smooth and hasn't got a heavy, thick consistency! I didn't really notice any "illuminating" properties, but still a nice product!

Yves Rocher Collection Cacao: Cacao & Orange Hand Cream: Now I work as a makeup artist, so I am constantly using my hands!! My hands do get a little dry, but I don't have any severe cracked skin or anything major. So this hand cream appealed to me. It's just moisturizing & has an absolutely DIVINE smell!!! Oh my gosh, it smells like Terri's Chocolate Orange (one of my favourite kinds of chocolate!).
I've been carrying this around with me everyday !

Scholl Dry Skin Exfoliator: So this is one of those products that I would be kinda embarrassed to buy in the shops, which is silly I know, but I have a phobia of feet so I'm a little creeped out by products for feet haha! This is an exfoliator for rough skin on the soles of your feet. I find girls notice this more so than men, because woman wear heels etc which can cause the rough skin. I also work at a job where I stand all day so that doesn't help! So I was curious to see if this works! It says you have to use it 2-3 times a week! I have used it twice now and I don't notice a whole lot of difference, but my feet are particularly rough so I will keep using it and see if that changes :)

B.Smokey/ Soft, Blendable Kohl Eyeliner: So this is a 'black' pencil with a smudger on the end of it, however it comes out alittle more grey. It is quite a nice pencil! Nice texture, very smooth, nice colour pay-off, however its grey so I don't think I'll use it myself very much. Also I generally use gel liner now as its waterproof and doesn't need much topping up. 

Emite Make Up Micronized Eyeshadow (Dams): This eyeshadow sounds so impressive with that nice doesn't it?!?!?! hahaha Well it is quite nice! It's a matte black eyeshadow, it is SILKY smooth ! Honestly, it is like velvet when you touch it! Basically the purpose of this eyeshadow is that it has NO FALL OUT! And I gotta hand it to Emite Makeup, I really didn't notice any fall out when using this! So it definitely does work in that respect. However, it retails at £16.80 (Euro price not given)!! No way would I pay that much for this small eyeshadow.

So everyone that's the November Glossybox!! Like I said I'm super impressed with this month's box, definitely a massive step up from last month's edition!! If any of you are interested in signing up to Glossybox or want more info feel free to check out there website here

& Remember to give in to your beauty lust ;)
