July Glossybox!

22 July 2013

I have been subscribed to Glossybox since april so this is my fourth box. I am still in love with the idea of getting a little box of goodies in the post every month i am always so excited to see what each box brings. Each box costs £10.00 (plus p&p) and I'm still happy to pay that each month for the products i have been receiving. This months box Seaside Splash is a box of summer must haves! I am really impressed with this months box, all the products are aimed towards making you look beach perfect and how amazing is the packaging!

This is what i received in my box........

Alterna Haircare, Bamboo style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist

"Your perfect seaside splash summer companion! forget perfectly primped hair, and instead opt for effortlessly tousled just back from the beach waves with this weightless mist. Adds texture, volume and healthy style to all hair types"

I was excited when i saw this in the box, i have a thing for beachy looking hair and i have tried a fair few these sort of products claiming to give me sexy beach goddess locks! However i seem to just end up with a crunchy, not so goddess like mess... not the look i am going for! The first time i used this i sprayed it into dry hair and then put it in a plait and didn't think much more about it until i took my hair out the plait later on that day and my hair had perfect beachy waves and volume! I was so impressed my hair wasn't crunchy or hard either. I also tried it sprayed onto to wet hair but i didn't find the effect as good as on dry hair. Overall super impressed with this, however at £23.00 for a full sized bottle i am wishing i didn't like it quiet so much! 

Coola Mineral Face SPF 20 Unscented

"We love this little tough but gentle multi-tasker. Coola Organics Suncare Collection is hypoallergenic, free of parabens and packed with antioxidants. It provides complete UVA/UVB protection and fight free radicals, while soothing, toning and minimizing pores. Organic Acai oil delivers powerful anti-aging benefits, while organic evening primrose and linseed oils reduce inflammation and balance moisture.

I was interested to test this out as its specially targeted for the face and has lots of added benefits for the skin, however i cant say i was particularly impressed with this. I thought it made my face really white which i found strange considering its only a SPF20 and didn't rub into the skin very well at £29.99 for a full size bottle i think its safe to say i will not be purchasing it.

Essie Sleek Sticks

"Discover a whole new way to Essie. Now you can re-create chic looks fresh off the runway without so much as picking up a brush. These glam Essie sleek sticks mimic the look and feel of handcrafted nail art that lasts up to 10 days. All you need to do is match the stickers to the size of each nail, peel them off and apply, before buffing away any excess with the file... easy peasy!"

I was really happy to get these in my box, i am a big fan of Essie nail polish and i am super excited to try these out. I haven't had the best experience previously with nail wraps, i can never seem to get them on flat and straight so hopefully i will have better luck with these.

Sleek Makeup Pout Paint

"Pout Paints are intensive, long lasting lip pigments that are made to be mixed. Use a tiny bead of Pout Paint and smooth onto your lips for mind blowing vibrant colour that gives you full coverage that lasts for hours and dries to a satin finish"

Left (161 Minx) Right (154 Mauve Over)

I was very happy with the two colours i received my favorite is the peachy nude shade Minx. I tested Minx out on my lips and only needed a tiny amount to get a good colour. I struggled to get the swatches off my arm, i really had to scrub so i can imagine they are long lasting on the lips. I am looking forward to experimenting with the bright purple pout paint.

Anatomicals Spray misty for me Facial spritz

"Our current obsession in the Glossy office: ultra hydrating facial mists- the number one summer essential. This facial spritz with calming lavender and refreshing peppermint extract helps re-hydrate and calm skin. Wonderful every day, during flights, at the beach, in the city or in the office. We love that this is suitable for all skin types"

I like the idea of facial mists to cool you down and refresh the skin, thats exactly what you need in the summer. I sprayed this for the first time over my makeup and wasn't very impressed i found it didn't feel right on the skin and just make my face look wet and shiny, i also not too keen on the smell i feel its a bit too perfumed for a facial mist. I do like how cooling this is on the skin and think i will just use in on my body to cool me down or possibly on my face as long as I'm not wearing makeup.

So that what i received in this months box overall i am very happy with it the Bamboo Style Boho Waves mist is definitely a winner for me.
