Anyone else agree with me that February has just flown by? I feel like I've missed out on so much because its passed so fast!!

So lets just start with the fact that February's box was designed around it being the month of Love (Valentines day). The box was beautifully designed, I think the best by far.

What do you think? Appeal to you?

Yess.... I thought so!

OK so I can tell you now I am in love with every single product from this box, that's the 1st for a while, there is a real variety this time. Skincare, Haircare, Nails, Makeup and Perfume. I mean what more could you ask for!

Lets start with this gorgeous scented perfume from Jeanne Arthes. So the name will give you an idea as to what this perfume smells like. The name -  L'Eau de Rose.

As you may have guessed, yes this is a perfume that smells like rose! The in fragrance right now! A very floral sent but not too overpowering. I have been finding this a perfect daytime sent, it isn't a super long lasting perfume but Ideal for a quick refresh during the day. If you love the smell of fresh flowers this will be perfect for you and it is just the right size to fit into any handbag!!

How about a bit of make up now. Here is the Beat the blues skin illuminator by the brand MeMeMe. I thought this would be my least favourite out of the box and if you saw my unboxing video you will see why, however my mind has been changed. I LOVE IT!!

So this is in the colour Oyster Gold, I know looks a little dark but believe me it isn't. You can use this as either a illuminator or a highlighter its up to you. For me I have been using it as a illuminator together with my foundation application and oh boy does it work.

I simply dot this on my forehead, cheek bones down the centre of my nose and my chin, and then simply blend it together with my foundation. This leaves my skin looking dewy with a slight glow. To explain it a bit easier, think about this... Your on holiday and your getting ready to go out at night, you have a beautiful golden tan and you apply a small amount of foundation as your face already has that summer glow, well that is how this illuminator looks on my skin. I mix this with my Clinique Beyond Perfection concealer & foundation and just looks perfect.

Most definitely worth a purchase in my eyes and isn't all that expensive either, trust me this is must to add to your make up collection.

Skincare now, and this is the Noir Eternae Youth Potion, Face Scrub by the brand La Theorie Des Volcans.

At first I didn't quite grasp the idea of the face scrub, so my idea was that you left this on the skin and from the pink application it would then turn grey as it dried onto your skin. WRONG! That isn't how it is supposed to work.

So as you rub this mask into the skin it will gradually turn grey as it gets to work, which is something I'm really enjoying. Its a bit of fun added into my skincare regime. This helps to remove dead skin cells and help reduce impurities and redness which I have just started to notice a difference in my skin. The only thing I have noticed with this scrub is the texture is more like a clay paste which I find unusual for scrub, but also interesting because it really does feel like its working and my skin is thanking me for using it so I am happy!! Oh and just to add smells incredible too.

Haircare next - yes??

OK so this is the Honey Strength Restorer Balm by Garnier.

Firstly can I just say how cute the size of this is!! I have tried the Garnier Ultimate blends shampoo & Conditioner and I didn't get on with that very well so I was a bit sceptical about trying this. I tried this just under a week ago now and I only got one use out of it, but I do have super thick hair so that could be why, however if you have thin hair you will definitely get more than one use out of it.

This hair care product smells gorgeous, made with Royal Jelly, Propolis and Honey. After the one use with this product my hair was left lovely and smooth and hydrated. I simply applied this to the middle to end lengths of my hair and left on for about 7mins. Its recommended to leave on for 1-5mins, however my hair is very thick so leaving it on for those few extra minutes just helps to a healthier look. Personally I don't think this is a product I would go out and buy again only reason being is that there are so many brands that offer similar products.

Finally time to see some nail products. This is the Ciate London Paint pot in Iced Frappe.

Oh the colour, the packaging, and the quality!! TOP MARKS HERE!!

I love this nail polish I can understand why these polishes are little more on the pricey side, the quality of the polish is brilliant, it applies beautifully and sits well on the nails. I love the brush applicator its fits the shape of my nails really well making application even easier.

The colour is gorgeous, its a pink/nude shade and after 2 coats its perfectly coated and leaves a gel like shine, and so far this hasn't chipped. (I have been wearing for 3 days)

Also lastly can we just appreciate the packaging, you get 13.5ml which is a great amount of polish and a cute little bow on the front of the bottle, I think this just adds a little something extra!!!!

Right that is everything I received in the February Glossy box. I love the products in this box nothing has actually disappointed me so I highly recommend you go out and pick these up!

What do would you go out and purchase after seeing the products?

If you want to see me open February's box here it is, take a watch and I will talk to you soon!
