Glossybox July 2013

Tuesday, 30 July 2013


First of all how gorgeous is the July Glossybox! The seaside splash theme this month is so cute. I love the turquoise and coral colours and as usual I've saved the tissue paper and ribbon to re-use and will be filling the box with my bits and bobs of make up and jewellery.

I always get ridiculously excited when a new Glossybox pops through my letterbox, I can't help but immediately rip it open to see what's inside! I did a little 'ooooooh' when I opened this box. Of course the seaside splash theme continues inside with the products all keeping with the beachy, summer feel.

Anyway, here's a little rundown of what's inside and my thoughts...

Anatomicals Spray Misty For Me Facial Spritz {full size}  // I love love love this! It's a hydrating and cooling facial mist that's suitable for all skin types. The extracts of lavender, rose and peppermint smell so gorgeous and fresh. Although it's not something I would normally buy, it was an absolute godsend when the weather was mega hot recently. I kept it in the fridge and sprayed it on my face numerous times during the day which really cooled me down and left my skin feelin much fresher. Full size price is £6.00 for 100 ml

Coola Organic Suncare Collection Coola Mineral Face SPF 20 Rose Essence Tint {sample size} // A strange little product that combines a facial mineral sunscreen combined with a tinted moisturiser with environmental protection. This really surprised me. At first glance the shade looked way too dark for my paleish skin but when I tried it it actually gave me a nice natural tanned look. It blends in really nicely and gives a very light coverage but it would be great to use on holiday. Full size price is £29.99 for 50 ml

Pukka Ayurveda Radiance Serum {sample size} //  Pukka call this a wonder serum that will leave your skin feeling fresh and bright, with Aloe vera and manuka honey to soothe and refresh. Gotu kola and lemon balm to tone and brighten the complexion and help to naturally revitalise & restore the skin. Woah that's a big claim! I tried it for a few days and didn't notice any difference in my skin apart from making it feeling quite tight and uncomfortable. Full size price is £32.00 for 50 ml

Ciate London Paint Pot in Pocket Money {full size} // I've been coveting Ciate Paint Pots for a while, not just for the cute looking bottle with the black satin bow on it! It's not a particularly summery colour but when I'm in the mood for neutral nails I'll give it a whirl. Full size price is £9.00 for 13.5 ml

Alterna Haircare ‘Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist {sample size} // The most disappointing product of the box. I know beachy waves are so 'now' but my hair is naturally wavy which I hate! I usually straighten the life out of it but I might give this a go when I have a 'can't be bothered to straighten' day. Full size price is £23.00 for 125 ml

I was so happy with the products that I received... that is until I had a look on Instagram at what other people go! I would have loved the Ciate nail polish in one of the bright colours or the Essie nail wraps which I would love to try. Oh and I'm so jealous of Sleek Pout Paints!

So what do you think? What did you get in your Glossybox this month?

  1. I just got mine (signed up late) and was thrilled with what I got too. I have to admit to getting a set of Essie sleek sticks and 2 pout paints (one in white which was a bit of a surprise until I started mixing!).

    The "Spray Misty for Me" is absolutely unreal isn't it? Such a welcome product in this weather that is for sure. I must admit, I think the Ciate Paint Pot you got is in such a gorgeous colour, it is the kind I would probably use up within a couple of months.
