This month I received Glossybox number 2 and I was quite looking forward to it after my first box last month (which I loved and you can read more about it here). I have to confess I love the actual box all the lovely products come in. These pretty pink boxes make perfect storage for all the bits and bobs I have laying around. Now, June's theme is festival/beach season and despite the cold and windy weather we are having (boooo London), some of these goodies are quite nice. Here are the products I received and I hope you enjoy reading!
MONU Spa Rosewood Reviving Mist | £11.95
Despite its odd smell, I quite like this product and wish we got more than a sample. It claims to freshen up your dull, stressed or flushed skin and it does exactly that. Its ingredients include lemon, rosewood and geranium which are great to keep the skin looking fresh and hydrated. I particularly like how this suits all skin types, so even my at times sensitive skin can handle it. Better yet, this can be used to set make-up in place so definitely one I will be keeping in my handbag to use throughout my very long work days.
Halo Fragrance Free Facial Wipes | £1.20
These wipes do come in handy being travel sized and all, and they would be perfect for taking on a weekend away and keeping in your make-up bag. Having said that, I feel like Glossybox didn't try hard enough with this one; it's cheap and not many Glossies were pleased, rightfully so. We want to try new exciting make-up brands, so no more face wipes that we can easily get in drugstores, deal?
Kueshi Anticellulite Booster | £14.55
Unlike those wipes, this is my favourite item in this month's box and it is full sized! Having recently lost some weight (read my weight loss journey here), I find myself suffering from cellulite on the back of thighs so this could not have been a better pick for me. I have only used this for 3 days now, applying in the morning and at night, and whilst it is too early to notice any positive results, I like how it nourishes my skin really well and it is not at all sticky like most anti-cellulite creams are. This is also Parabens Free which is always plus! You did good with this one Glossybox.
Glossybox Flash Tattoos | £6.50
Exclusively designed for us Glossies, these faux tattoos are a trendy accessory for summer. The designs are gorgeous and I particularly like how they look on your wrists and ankles, although not sure about those Glossybox logos they included there. Even if I don't wear them all, they can easily be used on some sort of DIY and perhaps even on nail designs. Let the creativity flow!
Essence The Gel Nail Polish | £1.71 Shade: "18 I don't care".
Another cheap product, and even though this is the second Essence product Glossybox has sent me, I'm quite looking forward to trying it out. I would have preferred the blue shade because I have way too many red polishes as it is. But this is quite similar to Fifth Avenue by Essie which is my favourite polish of all time so maybe a cheaper dupe has come my way. I just hope this really does last all week on my nails because I know Essie never disappoints.
Verdict: I'm keeping my subscription. The monthly plan is only £13 including p&p and I quite like having something to look forward to every month. I would say that I like this month's box, but I don't love it. Here's hoping that next month's is better and perhaps includes more make-up items given that the theme will be "French Beauty". Wouldn't mind if they threw a perfume in there too. A girl can dream, can't she?! Also trying out Birchbox next month so very excited about that! Anybody sub'ed to that?
Thanks for reading beauties and enjoy the rest of the week!
