Just last month I signed up to Glossybox and was so excited to receive the special offer of not one but two boxes! First off I was super impressed by the packaging, tissue paper, a printed box, the works! I could easily get used to this every month!
The July box was inspired by the seaside with an edit of some great must-haves for summer, called ‘Seaside Splash’.
Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist
This is to be sprayed on damp hair and then tousled with fingers to create that effortlessly great ‘beach waves’ look. I am pretty much a ‘can’t live without my straighteners’ type of girl but willing to give this a go and see how it goes, will keep you posted ♥
Coola Mineral Face SPF 20 Rose Essence Tint
I do love a multi-tasking product, it provides complete UVA/UVB protection, while soothing, toning and moisturising. Sounds like a great little product but only wish the SPF was higher for my darker skin-tone.
Ciaté Paint Pot
I love Ciaté products and was extremely excited to receive a pretty much full-sized version of the ‘island hopping’ shade. The beautifully designed bottle is also finished with a cute bow ♥
Nip + Fab Shine Fix
A light gel that leaves you with a matte finish, perfect for oil control in the summer! This has to be my favourite product from the box and I will definitely be buying the spot fix too to make spots and blemishes disappear. I haven’t tried this product with make-up so will let you know how that goes (the husband loved this product too!)
Anatomicals Spray misty for me Facial Spritz
This product instantly refreshes your skin and smells gorgeous! It’s perfect for the poolside or beach. I wouldn’t recommend spraying it on top of heavy make-up or foundation as it leaves spray marks which is not so attractive but as a toner or refresher with no make up it’s great ♥
Overall, if this had been my first and only glossybox I wouldn’t have been too impressed but as I received two I am still very excited!
The ‘High-Flyers’ August glossybox is for the girl on the go, with handpicked hero products from around the world, some of which aren’t even available to buy in the UK yet.
Urban Veda Radiance Day Cream
Inspired by ancient Indian principles UrbanVeda is a brand new skin care range, reflecting holistic health and the nature of using nature to live a healthier lifestyle, more balanced lifestyle. The formula of the skin care range is to combat pollution, making your skin less vulnerable to the environment. I love this day cream, it smells great and worked well for me but I do like a full 3-step routine which inclines me to purchase the full range in full-size ♥
Emite Make Up – Eye lash Curler
Designed to suit all eye shapes this eye lash curler is curved, so it doesn’t touch your make-up base. This looks very professional but sadly I don’t do eye lash curlers, I know as beauty blogger I should be open to trying new things but this is my thing…they scare me! Luckily I get by without.
TRESemmé Treatment Shot
This new keratin smooth concentrated treatment shot is amazing! I love that it smooths hair in just 60 seconds, I will definitely be getting more of these ♥
Óceane Make Up Remover Pen
If you read my post yesterday you’ll already know I love this pen from Brazil! Perfect for correcting those corners that smear every time you apply ♥
Jelly Pong Pong 2-in-1 Shadow/Liner
For the ultimate high-flyer this is a great 2-in-1 crayon that acts as an eyeliner but is also great to use as a shadow as it smudges well. Perfect for creating a day to-night smokey in minutes. I was so happy to receive a black one to use as a base for a super smokey eye and liner during the day. The other shades are great for creating coloured smokey eyes which are so on trend right now.
The August glossybox was definitely a good one but I loved the packaging of the July box. I am still excited to receive my September box! If you’d like your own glossybox every month then you can click here or on the banner below which will take you straight to the site.
