Glossybox Review #2

Sunday, June 24, 2012

It's Glossybox time! The June 2012 box is supposed to be about getting ready for summer and although I'm not too sure it does that this box did impress me.

No cute paper this month! That upset me a little bit, only because the paper before was beautiful. Haha, oh well.

The first product this month was the Glossybox Serie Exclusiv Pro Beauty Brush RRP £15.00. The brush is made of natural goats hair and boy does it smell of goats. I know that sounds stupid but the smell really puts me off. I have just brought The Real Techniques brushes so anything that's not those doesn't live up to my standard at the moment but it came in handy for using one of the other products.

The next product is Yves Rocher France Mini Mascara Ultra-Volume Sexy Pulp RRP £16.90 full size. This is possibly my favourite product. It's one of the best mascara's I've used and I know a lot of other people have felt the same. It coats your lashes evenly, no clumps is a definite bonus. My lashes looked longer and fuller. I really love this. Would I purchase this with my own money? Possibly £16.90 is a lot for me but it is worth it!

The third product was BM Beauty Summer Warmth Bronzer RRP £8.00 full size. I really loved this product. I have been after a decent bronzer for a while so when I saw this in my box I was really happy. And after trying it out I'm still sold on it. The colour is bronze enough without being orange. It gives you a really healthy summer glow! And I am considering purchasing this!

The next product is also controversial the Agent Provocateur Eau Provocateur RRP £39.00 full size. Fragrance samples never go down well I don't mind getting them but something else would have suited me better. Three little bottles of the fragrance came in the box and I only really liked the black one. The others smelt either too young or too old. I'm not going to be buying this. But if someone buys it for me I wouldn't complain!

The final product was the Vichy Dermablend Ultra-Corrective Foundation Cream Stick RRP £19.00 full size. I was really excited about trying this product. I love anything foundation or skincare and this claims to make dark circles and blemishes disappear instantly. But I found this product took a lot of work. I'm used to a liquid concealer and I think they are more hygienic too! Once I had worked it in I like the product. Will I be buying it? Probably not.

Overall I am happy with my box, if I had received something other than the perfume this box would have been near on perfect!

Do you receive Glossybox? What did you get?

Glossybox costs £10 ( +P&P ) and I pay for my own box. I am not sent it for free. For more information visit the Glossybox website.

  1. i havent tried Glossybox yet, im not sure if i could afford to try it either! i may try it though! xo

    1. I find it a great way to try new products that I could never afford. If I wasn't working I wouldn't be able to afford it! :) xx

  2. I'd love to know how you got on with the foundation, looks intriguing!

    1. It was ok but I much prefer the Collection (2000)concealer and that only costs £4 something rather than £19! :) xx
