This night cream has been featured in a previous box and is lovely. The consistency is nice and creamy and it has a pale green colour. It is non-greasy, absorbs quickly and has a soothing herbal scent.
My skin feels plumper, super soft and moisturised.

I’m not much of a lipstick wearer, I prefer lip gloss. I like the packaging of this lipstick and the formula is creamy and hydrating with a lovely sheen finish. However the shade ‘Sway’ which is a nude mauve looked really pale on my lips and didn’t suit my complexion. I’ve found a way to make it work by layering my favourite lip gloss over it.
Glossworks Cuticle Balm 15g
This uniquely formulated balm is the essential pampering solution for the cuticle. It uses only the purest natural ingredients, including Borage seed oil – rich in gamma linolenic acid (GLA), Calendula flower oil – known for its strong healing properties, Jojoba oil, an oil closest to our own sebum and shea nut butter enriched with vitamin E.
This balm will leave the skin soft and well protected while promoting healthy skin and nails.

*Naturally occurring allergens present in essential oils.
This is a lovely cuticle balm to nourish dry cuticles and nails. I was really pleased to try this out as my nails have been dry and brittle.
It is easy to apply and smells incredible. I love the light and fresh lemony scent of lemongrass.
Apply a small amount to each cuticle and using a circular motion, massage into cuticle and over the nail until absorbed. Best results are achieved if applied every evening before going to sleep and after a manicure / pedicure.
It softens, moisturises and nourishes my cuticles and nails. They look much healthier.

This face cream has a lovely creamy consistency and it smells lovely. I love the scent of sandalwood and ylang ylang. It absorbs well into the skin and doesn’t leave a greasy residue.
My skin feels soft, smooth and hydrated afterwards.
