I wasn’t expecting to recieve this months Glossybox, if you read my previous Glossybox Review you’ll know i cancelled my subscription, Well as it was my 10 year wedding anniversary 30th june my amazing hubby got me the box as part of my presents.
Glossybox is a monthly beauty box subscription, each month you receive 5 beauty products which are tailored to your beauty profile. For just £10 + £3.25(P&P) You can subscribe for 3, 6 or 12 months. Or you can do month by month and cancel at anytime.
This months box also came with 2 extra goodies when you sub so I received the fantastic Dr PawPaw which I absolutely love and the Rodial XXL mascara in travel size and this mascara is fantastic.
Right onto the box itself the June Edit was the best I’ve ever had with 7 products which just blew me away, They packed so much into the box it was the most exciting unboxing that just kept giving. So this months products were a really good mix of beauty products covering hair-care, make-up, skin-care and also an extract of Wilde Like Me which launched 29th June and was written by Blogger Louise Pentland Its a much anticipated book perfect for a summer read (I’m looking forward to reading this and I don’t really read books) Also four out of the seven products are full-size so this months box really does pack all the punches.
I’ll start with
111 Skin – Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel (trial-size)
If this was full-size it would be £110 which is way out of my price range but it is a fantastic product and I love using it.
Even though this isn’t a full-size product it was a good size sample, you only need a very small amount so it will last a while. I alternate between this and another eye cream. This really is very hydrating use your ring finger in a gentle patting motion, The ring finger is always the best finger to use under the eye area as it doesn’t put a lot of pressure on the very thin skin. This also brightens up the eye and if have some left I apply it to my eye lids too. It’s really soothing and cooling to the eyes and also is a nice base for your primer.
Sleek – Power Plump Lip Crayon. (Full-size £5.50)
This super creamy natural lip crayon contains ingredients which encourage blood flow to the lips surface and give them a nice plumped up lip that also looks natural still. I like my lips with it first and then let them start to tingle and then apply it to the rest of my lips. This is also a great base to put on before you apply your liquid lipsticks and lip glosses, It helps to keep your lipstick in place and also because the lips have been lined with the crayon it helps prevent the lipstick from bleeding. The lips look nice and natural.
Batiste – Stylist Sheild My Locks Heat & Shine Spray 200ml (Full-size £4.49).
Batiste is a brand I love for their fantastic quality dry shampoo and their affordable for all prices, This product doesn’t disappoint either. Protect the hair against the heat from hair dryers, straighteners, etc up to 230○c, Each time you use them it causes damage to your hair and so having a heat protection spray that works is a must and this gives you the protection you need plus it’s also a styling spray so no need for multiple products. I’ve been using this all the time and I love the shine it gives your hair and also the fact that it doesn’t make the hair stiff like hair spray and other styling products can. It’s also great if you just want to add a bit of shine and freshness to your hair it looks natural and fresh.
Manna Kadar Cosmetics – Sheer Glo. (£22.50)
This is a great highlight to use alone along the cheek bones and in all the places where the light would naturally give a glo, It’s also perfect for mixing into your usual liquid foundation to give a dewier make-up look. I love to add some when I’m feeling like I need to brighten up my face without having to do a full face of make-up. This would be perfect for a natural look on a summer’s day or evening with a black or brown mascara, a bit of shimmer eyeshadow, a little bit of bronzer and a light lip gloss. Continue reading
