May GlossyBox – Unboxing & Review

I hope you guys are enjoying the new content of my blog, if you haven’t already seen the new additions then go have a look round (after reading this post).

I loved everything about the April Glossybox and hopefully I’ll have some reviews going live soon but I wasn’t planning on getting until I saw I’d reached my 1000 glossydots. For those that aren’t already members, for every product you recieve in your box you get a survey and for each survey you complete you recieve glossydots. You can only recieve and use your glossydots when you have an active subscription.  So I’ve reached 1000 which means I can get a free box,
which I’ve used to get my May glossybox.

If you don’t want to know what is in the box or if your waiting for your own then it’s time to look away. If your too curious then take a look at what I recieved:

MEMEME – Enchanted Eyes Dual Ended Eye Wand
From what I read I think everyone will have one of these in their box. Blue is a key look for spring and this dual-ended eyeshadow stick has two blue tones to offer. I don’t wear blue so this is going to be new for me but I’m willing to give it a try. It is a full size product worth £6.95.

Etre Bell – Aloe Vera Ultra Moisturising Gel
The perfect product for prepping your skin ready for summer and an instant rescue when your skin needs something more than your normal moisturiser. A gel that cools while delivering moisture deep below the surface of the skin and reviving your completion as well as a post-sun savior. Another full size product worth £15.93 which already takes us over the cost of the box with delivery.

Zerreau – Towel Off Shampoo Foam
Now this has my attention, classed as the next generation of dry shampoo, this apple scented beauty allows you to wash your hair with the foam formula and towel dry it off (no need for water). Could it really be that simple?
Not a full size product but full size product is worth £7.95.

SASS – Intimate Perfect Skin Concentrate
I love these products when they actually work, I use to buy the Avon one but anyway. Described as a little treat for your skin post-shave or wax, this soothes your skin, reduces hair growth (woohoo), while exfoliating ingredients ensure no more ingrown hairs. Not a full size product and I don’t know if this is enough to trial but will definetly give it a go. Full size product £12.

Philosophy – Renewed Hope in a Jar refreshing & Refining Moisturiser
Endorsed by celebrities and top dermatologists this moisturiser is world-renowned for its skin enhancing qualities. It’s loaded with antioxidants which a unique  soufflé texture. It is said to reduce the appearance of lines, discolouration and uneven texture. Leaving you with a complextion that is hydrated, radiant and looking healthier than ever. Not a full size product but still looking forward to giving it a try although I’m not sure if the sample size will last long enough to give it a fair test. Full size is worth £35.50.

Overall a really good box this month and I’m looking forward to trying all the products. I usually prefer a box with a lot more make up but this time I like the range of products that have been put together and will happily test them.

Beauty Box : June GlossyBox Review

Hiya guys,

I had mixed reactions about my GlossyBox this month when It arrived, I was really looking forward to it but at first glance I was left somewhat disappointed at the contents. It could have been all the usual niceness of the packaging wasn’t there, it had been done half heartedly as the black paper was to one side and then the products on the other, presentation matters after all. But after considering and a good look through the contents I was no longer unhappy with what I received only wish Id had the mascara.

Anyway here are the contents of the box I received:

June GlossyBox

GlossyBox Serie Exclusive Pro Beauty Brush

Black elegant brush made with best quality goat hair with natural tips from Asian mountain goat. The supersoft hair is collected when the goat is trimmed, then sanitized and bundled by hand to make these smooth and resilient cosmetic brushes, perfect for bronzing powder.

Me Me Me Cosmetics

The handbag-friendly miniature ‘Sensuous’ Nail Gloss is your new summer essential shade, peach is everywhere at the moment especially the catwalks. This is a beautiful colour which I’m already wearing, the the perfect neutral shade which covers nicely in two coats.

Caudalie Eaux Fraiches – FLEUR DE VIGNE

Fleur de Vigne is an ephemeral flower that only blooms for a few days in June. This cool and lightweight fragrance combines delicate white rose, pink peppercorn and watermelon with energizing grapefruit, mandarin and cedar accents. Non photo-sensitizing, you can wear it in summer or under the sun. Intensely cheerful. This to me is summer in a bottle, I love it and have had many compliments on the beautiful scent.

VICHY Dermablend™ Ultra-Corrective Foundation Cream Stick

Dermablend Corrective Foundation is ideal for camouflage of skin concerns such as dark circles, acne marks, redness, dark spots, vitiligo, and the masking of tattoos. Product benefits:
40% pigment concentration- Twice the coverage of a traditional foundation.
Fragrance-free and hypoallergenic.
Sweat resistant & water resistant.
SPF 30.
Long lasting-14Hr hold.
Natural finish, with no mask effect.
Available in 7 shades

A very handy sized sample of all colours to see which one suits you best.

BM Beauty : Summer Warmth Powder

A medium, golden mineral bronzer which flatters most skin tones. Sweep over the face for a Summer glow, use as an eyeshadow, or even mix with body lotion to create a shimmering bronzing cream. Looking forward to this, I love the BM beauty range.

 

Overall not a bad box, already looking forward to the next x
