June 2016 Glossybox

I have been receiving my Glossybox for over 5 years now, I cannot believe how crazy that is and how many products I have received in that time. Nevertheless, the excitement every month is still there and that is what keeps me coming back time and time again. This month’s box had a summer vibe to it and contained things that I will definitely be using this summer. We also received a bonus item which was good, read on for my full review.

Konjac Sponge – Full Size £6.99
I have seen these sponges around and I wanted to try one for a while now. These sponges are the latest trend in Japan and are made from the natural fibres of the konjac vegetable. These sponges are known for their ability to hold water and can buff your skin beautifully. The sponge is more gently than a scrub but left my skin feeling very smooth. The texture feels like rubber. You need to hang this sponge up to dry to keep it fresh which is my only annoyance as I can’t take it to the gym but I really like what this has done for me so far. I would definitely repurchase these if I saw them in a store.

Ladival – Sun Protection Spray – Full Size £19.99
After receiving a sun protection oil last month I was initially disappointed to see another one in the box, especially as it has the same SPF. It would have been nicer to perhaps receive a higher SPF so I had  range to try out. That being said I really do like this product. The lotion sprays on so applies easily and really sinks into the skin which I like. This isn’t necessarily a product I would pick up in store as the packaging doesn’t appeal to me but I would definitely buy this again. The Ladival spray provides protection against four types of UV rays which most sunscreens don’t do. It’s also water resistant and free from perfume so works really well with my eczema. It’s great to feel that I’m really protected when wearing this.

De Bruyere – After Sun Lotion – Full Size £9.48
After sun is something I definitely like to use in the summer to keep my skin hydrated and avoid any peeling if I get sunburnt. I love the packaging of this product, it’s so pretty compared to well-known brands. The first thing I noticed when I went to use this was the smell due to the coconut oil properties. It smells like Malibu cocktails and summer all rolled into one – it’s absolutely gorgeous! It is also totally paraben and silicone free too, so you know you aren’t putting anything harmful onto your skin. I haven’t been lucky enough to get much sun this year (thank you England!) but when I do, this is going to be one of my summer staples.

Origins – GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream – Full Size £20
This is quite a small sized sample and I’m not sure if there was enough to really notice any differences when trialling this cream. This gel like formula aims to instantly reduce dark circles and puffiness under the eyes. You simply dab this around the eye area in the morning. 

Emite Make Up – Lip & Cheek Tint – Full Size £12.50
I found this a bit daunting when I opened it as it’s a deep red colour and I pictured myself looking like a clown but then I saw Kim wearing it and it looked really nice and subtle. The trick is to only apply a few drops when wearing this on the cheeks and then blending it out. It gives a lovely pink glow and once I got the hang of not putting too much on I really liked the result. This is such a large product as well it is going to last ages.

Aussie Hair Care – Deep Conditioner – Full Size £1.09
This sachet was a bonus product this month. I do love a deep conditioner as they always make my hair feel really soft and I like to save these for special occasions. I haven’t used this yet as I am saving it for when my hair starts to feel dry again but this was a welcomed addition to this month’s box.

They also provided a sneak peek for July, we will be receiving a night tanner, I am excited to try this out! What did you get in your Glossybox this month? If you’d like to sign up for Glossybox, click here.
