July Glossybox

Hey ladies, hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine. Todays post is on this months Glossybox. Its weird because I feel as if it was only a few days a go I was writing about Junes box. This month is seriously flying by! Now first I just want to mention how cute this box is. Just look at it! I love the bright turquoise colour of this box, I'm not sure if the picture does it justice really but it is super bright and its covered in orange coral and starfishes. Eek! Such a lovely design and perfect for summer. I was so excited about that it took me a little while to appreciate whats actually inside. 

This month the theme was the seaside whether it be to the Caribbean or the seaside here in England. The box definitely represents this and the product are super cute and summery too! Here is what I received in my box this month...

Anatomicals Spray Misty for me facial spritz. I love the packaging of this little spray and its the first thing I picked up when opening my box. Its basically a spray to rehydrate and calm your skin and its super cooling too. Absolutely perfect for the weather at the moment. I actually tested it out there and then and loved it. Its really refreshing and makes you feel less hot and sticky. Love it! Its also ideal for all skin types and only retails for about £6 so you can't go wrong.

Alterna Haircare Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist. I have never heard of this brand before but I am pretty excited to give this a whirl. In hot weather of any kind, the idea of spending ages styling my hair or using heat on it makes me want to hide! So this is ideal. You just spritz it on to damp (or dry) hair and shape it with your fingers and your done. Its meant to create beach hair without actually being near one. Cant wait to try it out. :)

Ciate London Paint Pot in 'Speed Dial'. Another nail polish! You are all probably thinking 'this girl has way too many, stop sending them to her!' but I love it! I always get really excited when I see a nail polish staring back at me in my monthly goodie box. Ciate London are actually a really good brand and normally retail for £9 so the quality is good. I'm really looking forward to painting my nails this gorgeous bright sunny orange. Its not a colour I would normally buy myself but I can imagine it looking brilliant with a tan.

Coola Organic Suncare Collection Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer. I tell you, this box couldn't have come at a better time! With the weather how it is at the moment, sunscreen is a must! I normally use Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen for my body and my face but this one sounds really interesting. Not only is it a moisturising sunscreen but it also soothes, tones and minimises pores too! I will definitely be trying this out next time I am sunbathing in my garden thats for sure. I'll keep you posted. :)

Sleek Makeup Pout Paint in 'Peek-a-Boo' & 'Pin Up'. These look really interesting too. I get the impression they are a little like lip tars. They are basically long lasting lip pigments that can also be mixed together to create new shades. Apparently by using the colour alone, you get super vibrant colour and full coverage with a satin finish that lasts for hours! However I also received this bright blue one which at first glance looks terrifying! Once I read the booklet inside, I realised that it was for mixing to create my own ideal shade. Less scary now. :)

So thats what was inside my box this month. Overall, I was really happy with what I received. One of my favourite boxes so far. I think it helps that the packaging was just so cute and different. Did you get July's Glossybox? What did you think?

Lots of love

  1. I also received near the same box and I love the face mist, I put mine in the fridge as its super hot and it cools me right down! but for the hair texturing spray, it doesn't give any texture to my hair which is a shame :( I dont know if its because I have thick hair but I've only tested it out on straight hair not my natural hair yet. Slightly disappointed! Lovely post x

    1. Ah thats a good idea! I didn't think of putting it in the fridge. :) Oh really? I haven't tried mine yet but I'll be disappointed if it doesn't work too!

      And thank you very much :) xx

  2. I really like the design of this box. I'm new to Glossybox and I'm not yet sure what to expect. I do rather like concept boxes though.

    Saying that, I really should get round to opening my box.


    1. I think thats the best part, you never know what your going to get :). Hope you enjoy your box this month! xx
