Glossybox June 2013 | Review


After coming home from work on Saturday to see my Glossy box had been delivered i was super excited but..... if I'm being totally honest my excitement was short lived as I'm not that impressed with this months box atall. There's only 2 things in this months that I'm excited to try and know i will use hhhmmm, anyway on to what was inside.

Figs & Rouge Coco Rose Lip Balm Rrp £5.00

I'm super happy i got this as not only do i love Figs & Rouge as a brand but i love the fact that their products are 100% Natural. I adore the packaging, not only is it super cute but its really convenient too as i hate putting my fingers into those tinned lip balms so this is definitely the hygienic option. The lip balm itself is lovely and moisturising and provides you with a light tint to the lips, it also smells lush.

Helen E Cosmetics Shimmering Eye Powder In Shade 26 Rrp £5.00

I wasn't really jumping for joy when i saw this as i don't really like Helen E products, i don't  find the quality to be that good and the packaging is awful too. The eye shimmer itself is quite pigmented but i don't see how this fits into the 'Summer' theme that Glossy box have gone for this month, its a very dark slightly duo chromed blue/dark grey which isn't my cup of tea I'm afraid.

Nux Huile Prodigieuse OR Rrp £34.00

Another product that I'm not that crazy about, I've never really got into the whole dry oil craze as i really do hate how they feel on my skin. I did pop a small amount of this multi purpose oil on the back of my hand just to see what it was like, it added a slight golden glow to my skin but wasn't shimmery or glittery what so ever, even though it appears to look very shimmery in the bottle. It's probably great for someone who enjoys oils but sadly i don't.

Mememe Long Lasting Nail Gloss In 67 Graceful Rrp £5.00

The colour of this really lets it down for me unfortunately, its a real nude pinkish colour which would be OK for french manicures but i have very small short nails so i could never have a french manicure on my natural nails. I think if the colour would of been a spring/summer shade it would have been perfect.

Monu Hydrating Moisturiser Rrp £29.95

Finally something i actually like ha ha. This moisturiser is lovely and also has the added bonus of SPF 15 which i thought was good. I found it sat really nicely under my foundation and didn't slip at all, it also smells really fresh which i love. I also thought the sample size of 30ml was really generous considering the full size is 50ml so that's a little Brucie bonus.

On a whole i think this months box was pretty pants when you compare it to previous boxes, I'm hoping this is just a blip and Glossy box will be back on form next month.

What did you think to this months box girlie's???
