I love a pink box filled with goodies just as much as the next girl, so when we arrived at the hotel and the first thing we received was a “Summer Countdown Glossybox” I couldn’t help getting really excited!



I love the concept of Glossybox, a monthly box filled with beauty goodies right in your mailbox, and actually used to buy them way back when I was younger. But after moving to London I can’t really have monthly packages waiting on me back in Norway, so when I figured out that Glossybox sponsored our Femelle trip to Rome I felt so blessed! The first box we got was a Summer Countdown, which might sound a bit late getting in the beginning of August, but as I really haven’t had any summer vacation/ weather before now it was the perfect fit for me.


In the box I found all the things that I need (and forgot) for my summer vacation, including some old favourites and some all new goodies I can not wait to try.


1. SANEX Dermo Protector Shower Gel – a simple and gentle shower gel, perfect for me who of course forgot to bring one with me!

2. ÊTRE BELLE COSMETICS Aloe Vera Ultra Moisturizing Gel – I always bring a good Aloe Vera with me when traveling, to put on sunburns, rashes or similar, but this was a lot better than the old and sticky one I had brought with me. So smooth and moisturizing!

3. HAWAIIAN TROPIC Protective Dry Oil SPF 15 – I wish I could say I have been using this for the past few days, but as the weather is a bit too sunny and warm (try 35-45 degrees outside) I brought Hawaiian Tropic’s SPF30 Smoothing Sun Screen, but as I already love the brand I can’t wait to use this one as well!

4. KUESHI Anti-Cellulite Lotion – This one I have not tried out yet, but I think it sounds really interesting and I hope it might give me some results over time? ;-)

5. MAKE UP STORE Hair Tube, Messy – A great hair wax which gives me texture and a great finish, without leaving my hair greasy and disgusting. Fun with a hair product as well!
