Lifting The Lid: Glossybox June Edition...

Hello my lovelies, I'm baaaaack!

I had an amazing time in Turkey & have a post planned with lots of photos etc but I wanted to get this post up first =]

When I arrived home from Gatwick yesterday my Glossybox was sat on my bed waiting for me, I couldn't wait to rip the box open & see what I'd received!
As you can see we're back to the normal pale pink box & this month the box is themed around Summer. 

Here is what I received...
As you can see I received site quite an away of different products. Here is a closer look at what I received:

Vichy Dermablend:
'Vichy's expert camouflage foundation stick for minor to severe skin flaws.'

I was really excited when I saw this, it's a really good size for a sample product and I can't wait to try it out. 

Glossybox Pro Beauty Brush:
'This classic series natural goat hair blush brush gives a super soft make up application.'

I haven't used this brush yet so I should probably hold judgement but I don't think I'll be getting much use out of this brush. The brush feels really scratchy and the brush shedded when I removed it from the packaging. Not impressed!

Caudalie Eaux Fraiches:
'Refresh your senses with these invigorating and energising fragrances.' 

I wasn't too impressed when I saw yet another perfume sample but this is actually a very good size for a perfume sample at 10ml. The fragrance isn't something I'd normally choose as it leans heavily towards the floral side but I'm sure I'll use it sometime!

MeMeMe Sensuous Nail Gloss:
 'A 5ml high shine nail gloss in this season's key catwalk peach shade.'

I've never tried anything from the MeMeMe brand before and I'm a big fan of a nude/peach nail colour so I'm looking forward to giving this a go.

BM Beauty Summer Warmth Bronzer:
'Multi purpose pure mineral bronzer. Add a touch of summer warmth to your face.'

I'm not too sure about this product, it's far too shimmery to use as a bronzer and the size of the pot is far too small to dip a face brush into. The colour itself is lovely so I'll probably end up using this as an eyeshadow.

Overall this box was ok but it certainly wasn't one of my favourites. I like the Vichy Dermablend sample and look forward to trying the nail polish out but everything else is a little meh. I'm super jealous of anyone who received the Dermalogica sample set! 

What did you think of your Glossybox this month?

  1. I'm glad that you had a good time in Turkey :) I actually unsubscribed from glossybox a couple months ago as i thought that maybe the money i could spend on a product that i would actually use because some samples i receive were not things that i need. However, i do enjoy seeing what others receive in their boxes and from the box you got, i would have loved to try out the Vichy dermablend :) Thanks for sharing~x

  2. Ive never subscribed to a beauty box but I love looking at what other people get, if I was to subscribe I dont think id use the sample that I recived!

    Im glad you had a good time in Turkey :)


  3. Hoping to see a review on the bronzer! xxx
