GLOSSYBOX (UK REVIEW) – JUNE 2018

Glossybox Time!

I cannot believe we have reached another summer of Glossybox! It doesn’t seem very long ago that i was opening all the goodies from last summer’s boxes so it’s crazy i’m doing it again now! This June box was themed ‘chic and sophisticated French beauty essentials.’

INSIDE THE BOX: 3 SKINCARE, 1 BEAUTY AND 1 HAIRCARE PRODUCT

SKINCARE

MONUSKIN EYE COOL GEL p6100001.jpgI love the brand MONUSKIN so i was incredibly pleased to see this eye product in the box! It is a full size product of 15ml for £24.95. I love eye products and find them so refreshing and feel it’s a definite skincare staple to have. This is a gel that will instantly refresh and restore your eyes hydration. It has a blend of Vitamin C, Sodium Hyaluronate, Arnica and Ginseng…these all help to reduce eye puffiness and dark circles whilst also lifting and plumping the area. I am really excited to try this product out and hope it lives up to it’s claims as that would be brilliant! I like that you can pop it into your fridge too on warm days to give your eyes a more cooling effect. 

GATINEAU GENTLE EYE MAKEUP REMOVERp6100004.jpgI can see why this brand was included in a french themed box this is a french classic. It was founded in Paris over 80 years ago! This is a sample size at 50ml but the full price is £21 for 200ml. This is an oil free and alcohol free eye makeup remover. Brilliant for sensitive eyes! It contains green tea, cucumber and aloe vera all that will refresh and cool the eye area whilst reducing puffiness and keeping hydration. One thing to note is it does smell very strong of alcohol i think or has some sort of chemical smell to it. It probably will remove eye makeup like a dream however it seems pretty pricey to just buy this for an eye makeup remover. But it’s lovely to get to try out in a beauty box! 

NIP + FAB GLYCOLIC SCRUB FIXOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is again another sample size of 50ml but the full one is 75ml for £9.95. I know the brand Nip + Fab and have tried some of their other products out before and have been happy with the result so happy to try out this one. It’s a facial scrub that contains 3% Glycolic acid which is known to gently exfoliate and retexture skin, it also contains Salicylic acid which cleanses pores. This facial scrub is a 3 in 1 micro exfoliant. It does have the ingredient Benzyl Alcohol which i find drying in skincare products however apart from that it looks like a good scrub! A big bonus is that it has a wonderful grapefruit scent that smells really yummy and fruity. 

BEAUTY 

LARITZY COSMETICS SHADE STIXOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI have never heard of this brand before but it’s a French-Canadian brand called LARITZY. This is a Shade Stix that is full size and retails usually for £18. It can be used as a bronzer or cream contour. I have to admit i don’t usually use cream products on my skin but it will be interesting to try out. It has a gorgeous deep brown shade which i believe is called ALOHA…this instantly make you feel summery! It is apparently long lasting and highly pigmented. It feels super creamy and it claims to be really easy to blend so that’s a bonus! This products is also cruelty and paraben free. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

HAIRCARE 

NOVEX MYSTIC BLACK DEEP HAIR MASKOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI have recently been hoping for a new discovery of a hair mask so i was delighted with this! I have not come across this brand before. Its a hair mask that keeps your hair feeling hydrated, tangle and frizz free and keeps those pesky split ends away. It is enriched with Baobab oil. Baobab seed is rich and soothing it contains Vitamin A, C, D and E. It also has omega 3, 6 and 9 in it! So it is truly rich in Vitamins and goodness for your hair! This is a sample pot of 100g but the full size version is 1kg for only £11.95. It doesn’t contain any parabens, sulphates or silicones so that’s great! I’m not sure if it’s suitable for coloured hair though as nowhere on the bottle does it state this so that might be something worth knowing if your thinking about purchasing. The main thing that captured me was the smell! As soon as i opened the lid of this box an incredible scent filled around me. I was in search of which product it was from and it was this one! I have no idea how to explain the scent but it smells salon worthy and very very incredible! Quite looking forward to treating my hair with this.

Overall this June box has been fantastic! I have loved how it’s been mainly skincare products and all the products i am super happy with! The box price is so worth it for the amount that the actual products are altogether worth. It’s a bargain really. My favourite item had to be the MONUSKIN Eye Cool Gel…right up my street! I would love to know if you have received this month’s box and if you had the same products and what your opinions are or perhaps you had slightly different ones, Let me know in the comments! Thank you for taking your time to read and i hope you loved seeing what treats were inside!

LOVE CHARLOTTE XO

UNTIL NEXT TIME BEYOU-TIFUL INSIDE & OUT XOXO
