Glossybox June 2016 review
There’s a very big summer theme going on with the contents, and a good mixture of well known and less obvious brands.
The star product from my box is a travel-sized tube of Origins Gin-Zing Moisturiser. I believe there are four different Origins products available, so you might get a slightly different one, but it’s a treat to get a high end skincare brand in a size that’ll actually last for a few weeks. This zesty pick-me-up for your skin will be getting safely stowed away in my holiday bag - it’s the perfect size to take away!
Another great item for the summer has to be the Ladival Sun Protection Spray SPF15. This is a full-size bottle worth almost £20 and offers a non-greasy SPF for the body. It’s perfume free, so good for sensitive skins and gives protection against four types of UV rays. Although I normally stick to a SPF30 and over, this’ll be a great product for my boyfriend who tans within 30 seconds of going out into the sun.
Carrying on the suncare theme is a cute little tube of De Bruyere After Sun Lotion. It’s another full-size product, but it’s still small enough to be hand luggage friendly. The exotic Monoi scent and hydrating vitamin E are the perfect combination of soothing and calming. Trust me when I say that this smells AMAZING.
Konjac sponges have become really popular over the past few years and are very big over in Japan. They offer a gentler way to cleanse and exfoliate and are made from the natural fibres of konjac, a type of Asian root vegetable. The one in the box normally retails for £6.99 and can be used over and over again in your daily cleansing routine.
The last proper item in my box is a full-sized lip and cheek tint from Emite Makeup, who I must admit, I’ve never heard of before. The deep red shade is a bit bold for me to use on my cheeks, but I’ll definitely give it a try on my lips! Glossybox list its retail value as £12.50. There’s also a single use sachet of Aussie’s 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner (rrp £1.99) which is a nice added extra. If you’re going away on holiday soon, shove this in your beach bag and pop on after a day in the sun to help calm and condition frazzled hair.
All in all I think this is a really good box and great value for money. Fingers crossed next month’s continues that theme! Glossybox costs £10 per month plus postage.
What do you think of this month’s Glossybox?
