Glossybox- The June Edition

It's been a while since I last dabbled my toes into the beauty box world, but I thought I would share my thoughts on the Glossybox June Edition *. When the beauty box phase first hit our shores a few years back, I was a loyal subscriber to a fair few and really enjoyed receiving samples of products that I would never normally try. A few months in and I was sick of receiving perfume samples and paying for the privilege, however of late they do seem to have upped their game although I'm not sure they'll be able to beat the full size Nars product that was in the first ever Glossybox, they do seem to be trying to raise the bar and for £10 a month, I think they're doing a good job.

Upon first inspection of this months Glossybox, I can't say I was overly impressed but after having a play with the products I'm quite happy with what I received in this months box.

The products that stood out to me the most was the nailgirls 3-in-1 base/top coat (full size), the Teeze Trend Cosmetics Beautiful Flat Stiff Brush and the So Susan Cosmetics Universal Blush.

In my opinion, you can never go wrong with a nail product that claims to act as a top coat, strengthener and base coat. I'm dubious as to whether it will live up to my beloved OPI Nail Envy and Seche Vite but at £13 it can never hurt to try something new. Eyeshadow brushes are always handy, I hate the design of it but the shape of it is reminiscent of the MAC 239 brush which always seems to be a popular choice among beauty bloggers. I personally use this brush to pack on the colour and its a great addition to this months beauty box. Finally, the universal blush by So Susan Cosmetics is a really flattering mauve/nude colour that seems to work well on my pale complexion.

Overall, I think this is a good box. Variations I have seen are a Rituals Travel size deodorant, a tube of L'oreal Million Lashes mascara (one of my favourite mascaras ever) and a So Susan Cosmetics concealer quad. The staple products across the board seem to be the brush, and the topcoat.

What do you think to monthly subscription boxes?

  1. Looks like a really nice box! I don't think beauty boxes are worth it, because although if I paid £12.95 (inclu postage) for a box I'd be happy with it, if I saw a bag of all of these products in the shop, I wouldn't buy it for £12.95. Hope that makes sense! x
