Last months Glossybox was quite a nice once and is starting to restore my faith in boxes. After using the products from May’s box I filled in the surveys on the website and found that I had enough points for a free box, obviously this was an offer I couldn’t resist so I redeemed my points straight away! The box arrived and it was a welcome surprise as I have been revising for mocks for the past age!Again, like last months, there is the cute little magazine. This time it has the story behind So Susan cosmetics and also a look inside Really Ree’s makeup bag which was very interesing! As I said in my May Glossybox post, I love little magazines like this. It also came with the standard ‘menu’ of products my box, which again is another thing I love!
I was quite pleased with my box this month; Glossybox guarenteed the boxes value to be over £45 which is great, as sometimes the boxes contents aren’t worth much more than you pay. Also in this box I recieved no perfume or body lotion samples which is always good!
First thing I got was this PRO:VOKE Touch Of Silver Shampoo, I already own and use this often and I do think it brightens my hair. However, do not be alarmed when you open the bottle to find an opaque dark purple product, because, scary though it seems it does not stain your hair. Thank goodness. Instead it somehow, (I have no idea how,) brightens blonde, grey and white hair really nicely.
Now this is something I have been trying to find for a while, a nail strengthener. If you read my blog often you may know how much I struggle with peeling, brittle nails, and I am always on the lookout for a nail strengthener that actually does something to my nails, unlike ones I have tried before, (you know who you are…) So receiving Nail Girls 3 in 1 Base Topcoat and Strengthener was brilliant. I can’t wait to try this out and report back!
Next onto my favourite product I have ever, ever, ever received in a Glossybox, like ever! (Casual Taylor Swift reference just there!) This is a Teez Trend Cosmetics Beautiful Flat Stiff Brush, and OMG I love it. Now this is a natural hair brush so wont be for everyone but if you do decide you need a good quality brush for packing on eye shadow this is definitely one that you should consider. It may be quite expensive but it doesn’t look like it’s going to break anytime, plus the handle design is so beautiful.
This is quite a random product that features in my Glossybox this month, and it comes in the shape of a Rituals Qui Gong Spray. I am much more of a roll on deodorant person, than a spray, I’m not sure why it’s just the type I’ve always used, anyway back to the product. I cannot work out if I like the smell, it’s apparently meant to be a white lotus and yi yi ren scent, but I have no clue what either of them smell like!
Final product is from a brand that has been hovering over a couple of blogs, it is also a full size product too! It is the So Susan Cosmetics Universal Blush. The little box it came in was so cute, but I’m not overly keen on the actual product packaging; it seems kind of cheap looking for a £18 blush in my opinion, but it’s the product inside that counts. The blush itself is so silky and soft as a really pretty colour that apparently adapts to a specific shade for different skin tones. It is also free from mineral oils, phthalates, has no animal by-products, is fragrance free, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and most importantly cruelty free.
So I am very pleased with my Glossybox this month, the total contents are around £46 which is great value compared to previous boxes, plus the products are all things I will use unlike some from previous boxes! Did you get this months Glossybox? Did you like the products you got? If you have posted about yours I would love to read it so feel free to link it in the comments!
