Glossybox October 2012 Review & Pictures

This is my first ever glossybox! whoo hoo exciting :)
I've always fancied signing up for these but never took the plunge due to my really sensitive & dry skin but i decided to go for it this month!
So, in my pretty pink box this month i got -


Anatomicals - don't just clean it woman, scrub it body scrub
A pink grapefruit body scrub that buffs with a bravura sense of charm and wit.

I am in love with my soap & glory breakfast scrub at the moment (along with the rest of the world ay!) so it will be good to see how this compares! I have seen this brand around but its never caught my eye if I'm honest but of course i will give it a go :)
It smells lovely, really fruity & grapefruity. It's not as rough as the breakfast scrub and it's quite jelly like.

Update: Yeaaa its ok but doesn't compare to my S&G scrub although this is a 1/3 of the price!
Yves Rocher France - Instant Anti-Wrinle Moisturiser
Provides deep and lasting moisture and immediately smoothes wrinkles. Enriched with hyaluronic acid for greater effectiveness!

I'm quite excited about this product, although i don't really i have wrinkles i do love a moisturiser and i have heard that hyaluronic acid is great for dry skin. Definitely sounds like it could be one of my favourites in this box.
It has quite a serum-y texture to it and a very heavy strange scent though, its hard to describe but its not a sweet smell at all. It sinks in quickly and isn't greasy at all.

Update: This stuff is amazing, I've used it every day since it arrived and its really helping my dry, sensitive skin in this dodgy weather. I've already ordered a few new bits from the Hydra Vegetal range i loved it that much!
Skinetica - Anti- Blemish
A unique solution for clearing skin blemishes, showing results in 2-3 days. kind to skin with no side effects.
I do get the odd naughty blemish pop up so i will definitely give this a go, i love that it's kind to your skin too :) - I've never heard of this brand before.
It has a runny watery consistency & has a hygenic washing up liquidy scent to it if you know what i mean!
Dr. Jart - Premium Beauty Balm
This Dr Jart+ BB cream provides high SPF40 protection with anti-oxidants. A Slightly glossy, low coverage cream with helps fight ageing. Particularly suitable for those over 30.

I'm not 30 just yet but i am excited about this product, I've never heard of the brand either if I'm honest.
It has a light feel to it and smoothes out nicely with a low coverage, i think this is a little to pink for me but i will give it a go.

Update: I wasn't amazed by this product although I've heard its a really good brand? The coverage was so low and i prefer something a bit heavier and the colour didn't match my skin tone at all :(  it was nice and creamy and did smooth out my skin so it works as a nice base but i don't think i will be using it if I'm honest.
Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure
5 steps of a manicure in 1 bottle! Base coat, Strengthener, Growth treatment, colour & topcoat.

This sounds amazing but I'm not overly keen on the colour, i guess its a good one for Christmas!!
 Overall, I'm not overly thrilled with the box but i will give all of the products a go and hopefully I'll love them!
