Glossybox - July 2013

It's that time of month again - Glossybox time!



I get far too excited whenever Glossybox send me my dispatch email, providing IT arrives before the box, and even if Instagram if I've taken a peak at other's boxes via Instagram, meaning I know what is likely to be in the box, I still can't wait to tear that strip of the outside packaging.

This month 's theme is Seaside Splash and aims 'to help you transform into the ultimate beach babe'. Unfortunately this came a little too late for me, as I had my holiday in June, luckily the British weather has decided to peek out, so these products will still be put to great use.

Here's what I received....


Alterna Haircare Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist - 25ml



This lightweight texturising mist aims to help create a tousled beach wave look without the effort, whilst also boosting volume and shine.

I'm not great with texturising sprays as they make my hair quite frizzy, but the fragrance of this one reminds me of being on holiday, so I'm willing to give it a try.

Coola Organic Suncare Collection Coola Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturiser - 7ml



This multi-purpose face moisturiser contains organic acai oil, organic evening primrose oil and linseed oils, which help to deliver many properties including reducing inflammation, balancing moisture and protecting the skin from UVA/UVB rays.

This product will provide protection thirty minutes after application and it is recommended to be reapplied every two hours/after swimming and perspiration for maximum protection.

Ciate London Paint Pot in PP064 the glossip - 13.5ml - Full Size



This gorgeous summer nail varnish will ensure your the envy of all fashionistas.

As you all know, I'm just not a nail varnish girl, and I seem to get one in every glossybox I receive. This nail varnish is an on trend colour, and before I decided to invest in gel polishes, I did have a few nail polishes from this brand, therefore I can say that they are great quality products, easy to apply and have great staying power.

Anatomicals Spray misty for me facial spritz - 100ml - Full Size



This face mist is suitable for all skin types, is hydrating for your skin and is a great product to keep in your handbag for hot summer days, like the ones that we have been having during this heatwave recently. Just a quick spritz of this on your face when needed will instantly refresh you, and cool you down with lavender and peppermint extracts, ensuring that it smells amazing!

Sleek Makeup Pout Paint in 160 Pinkini and 155 Lava - 8ml - Full Size




These pout paints aim to be long lasting, full coverage and are made to mix, allowing you to create your own unique combination of colours.

I'd not heard about this product before so I was intrigued when I saw two of them in my box, I love a good lip product and it wasn't long before I was testing them out. A little does go a long way with this product, and I find that applying it with a thin lip brush helps with precision during application. I have only tried out Pikini so far, and I absolutely love it! I put this on before attending a barbecue at the weekend where I ate and drank and to my surprise it was still there afterwards. It had disappeared by the end of the night, but I would consider this product to be highly pigmented, long lasting and vibrant.



I must say that I was very happy with this month's Glossybox, and it would appear that they have been listening to their customers, as I know plenty of people weren't happy, including myself, with how varied the boxes have been recently, however this month I have only seen the odd person, via Instagram, who have a product, maybe two different than in my box, which is nowhere near as many as usual, so well done Glossybox! :)

What did you get in your box this month?
