Glossybox June 2013

18 June 2013

Yay it's Glossybox time again. This month was the 'Summer Looks' box. I was itching to find out what was in the June box so I sneakily searched for the hashtag #glossyboxuk on Instagram to see if anyone had received theirs yet! Well they had and the selection looked fab.

My box eventually arrived on Monday and I ripped it open straight away {I'm not the most patient person!} My first thought was 'hooray I got the Nails Inc polish' then 'boo I got the hair products for curly hair'. Anyway shall we crack on and take a closer look at this months products?

1  //  Figs & Rouge Natural Tinted Lip Balm in Cherry Blossom {full size}. Love it. This has been gracing my lips every day this week. It's mega moisturising, has a lovely dark pink tint to it and smells gorgeous.

2  //  Paul Mitchell Ultimate Wave Beachy Texture Creme Gel and Full Circle Leave-in Treatment {sample sizes}. I was so disappointed with these products which claim to enhance your curls. Yes I have naturally curly hair which I hate so my GHD's are my best friend. On my profile I put that I have straight hair as I didn't want anything for curly hair, which made me think do Glossybox even use your profile to select your products? Luckily my sister has lovely wavy hair so I gave this duo to her.

3  //  Organic Surge Super Intensive Daily Moisturiser {full size}. I was very excited to try this out. I have dry dehydrated skin that loves loads of moisture so this looked promising. The texture of the cream is more like that of a night cream. It's rich and thick but it sinks beautifully into my skin and leaves it really hydrated and soft. It smells really 'natural' too, if you like the scent of essential oils you'll love it. It's also cheaper than my usual day cream so I might repurchase this when it's finished.

4  //  Helen E Waterproof Protective Lip Liner {full size}. Initially I was pleased to see a lip liner in here as I'm really in need of some new ones. However, when I swatched the colour on my hand I was really disappointed as the colour is really not me at all. It's a really dark cherry colour and not something I would ever wear or that would suit me.

5  //  Nails Inc. Polish in Portobello {sample size}. I absolutely adore this colour! It's a bright neon orange colour which is just perfect for summer. It only needed two costs to turn opaque and a top coat of Seche Vite gave it that extra glossy finish. I've had it on for two days now and no chips have appeared yet. The only negative is that it's not a full size bottle!

Overall it was a good box this month. The nail polish, lip balm and moisturiser make up for the disappointment of the hair products and lip liner. And for only a tenner, it's still a bargain for the actual value of what you get. And it's just so flipping exciting to receive it every month!
