July 2012 Glossybox

Hello everyone. I recently received my GlossyBox and thought I would share my views. I had a look at a few other boxes and think I probably got an alright one, but not the best and not the worst. This months box was all about festival season, with items you can take along with you to a festival or experiment with at home.

Paul Mitchell - Awapuhi Moisture Mist - Full Size £9.35
This refreshing spray is designed to give your hair and skin moisture and keeps you feeling refreshed. My glossybox arrived on one of the hottest days we have had this year and the first thing I did was spray this all over my face, and I can’t tell you how nice it was. I have put this product straight in my handbag and will be using this to keep myself felling refreshed all day.

Bex London – Londoner Urban Fragrance - Full size £81.00
I received SE1, or Southbank. When I first smelt this I thought it smelt like a male aftershave, then I read the information provided and it claims to be androgynous. I think this is a good idea if they want to produce unisex products, as there is a market for these, but personally I prefer a more feminine fragrance. This perfume smells of citrus with a hint of woodyness.

Monu - Night Renewal Complex - Full Size £36.95
This moisturiser claims to smooth and firm your skin whilst you sleep. I put this on before bed last night and didn’t really notice much difference at first, but today my make-up seems to have gone on smoother, and I don’t know if that’s coincidence or because of the cream, but I am going to keep using it and see if it continues to make a difference. I think this smells a bit like citronella which is offputting, but it seems a lot of my products smell like this, and I am starting to think.. is it just me?

Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics- Lip Frosting - Full Size £10.00
This cream gloss can be used on your cheeks or lips to give you some colour. This creamy formula smells delicious, I can’t decide what it tastes like, but it is a very familiar scent, and I absolutely love it. This gloss stayed put for a long time and gave a nice subtle colour to the lips. I am yet to try this on my cheeks, I feel it might be a bit sticky, but I will give it a go when the weather isn’t this hot.

Nuxe - Huile Prodigieuse - Full Size £17.50
This was a little sample of oil which can be used on your hair, face and body all year round. I’m not one for putting oil on my face as my skin sometimes gets a bit oily. I’m not really 100% sure on how I use this product, so any advice you have would be greatly appreciated so I can give this a proper trial.

Bonus Item: Elizabeth Ardens Visible Difference Skin Balance
This sample was a little bonus in our beauty box this month, and contained 3 little samples and the chance to go and pick up a deluxe sample from any Debenhams store. I might go and pick this up this week and try it out, but it depends if I have the courage, I hate getting free things, I always feel a bit rude!

Anyway overall I was quite happy with this months glossybox. I would have liked to receive the HD Brow palette like some people have received this month, but I think the range of products I received were quite different and there are a couple of things that I love. What did you get in your glossy box?
