Glossy Box: July 2012

Thursday, July 26, 2012
I received my July Glossy Box yesterday and it arrived via Hermes (although I find that the courier keeps switching between Royal Mail and Hermes). I read one blog post (the sunday girl's blog post) of what she received in her July Glossy Box and she received a HD Brows kit - which I wanted but sadly I didn't receive that in my Gloss Box but I do like the items that I received overall. 
I received: 
*Trio of Elizabeth Arden skincare (3 x 2ml samples)
*Londoner SE1 fragrance (2ml)
*Monu Eye gel (20ml)
*Jelly Pong Pong Irish Cream Pavlova Lip Frosting (15ml)
*Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi Use Dry Oil (10m)
*Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Moisture Mist (100ml)
Firstly, the fragrance sample I received. The brand is called 'BEX London' and the fragrance is named 'Londoner SE1'. It is a eau de toilette, which is not as long lasting as an eau de parfum. This fragrance smells like all of my dads aftershaves mixed together - it is far too musky and masculine for me! I will be giving this sample to my dad and the fragrance only lasted a couple of hours on me, which is quite disappointing. 
Nuxe Multi Use Dry Oil and Monu Eye Gel
I have wanted to try the Nuxe dry oil for a while now so I am glad that it came in my Glossy Box and I will be taking this oil with me on holiday next month. The bottle is gorgeous and cute (I am a sucker for anything miniature beauty products) and the oil smells really nice too. I also received an eye gel from a brand called 'Monu' which is a brand I have heard of and it has been featured in various magazines. I like eye gels, over cream eye moisturisers and this one feels nice on my skin - I have only tried this on the back of my hand as I only received this Glossy Box yesterday. 
I have tried one Paul Mitchell product in a Glossy Box before and I think it was a relaxing balm and it was awful so when I saw another Paul Mitchell product I wasn't very happy. I have tried this moisturising hair mist a couple of times and it is fairly nice and it does make my hair feel less dry and it makes my hair feel smoother. Overall, a nice and effective Paul Mitchell product. I also received a trio of Elizabeth Arden Skincare Samples from the Visible Difference line. I have dry skin and sensitive skin so these products (that are gentle and hydrating) are great for my skin type. I haven't tried these samples yet but they look good and I will post an 'initial impressions' post on these when I have tried them. 
Lastly, I received a 'Lip Frosting in the shade/flavour: Irish cream Pavlova'. I have bought a couple of Jelly Pong Pong products before, from Asos and they are really nice. This product is a lip gloss and it can be used on the cheeks as well. I have used this on my lips a couple of times now and it looks gorgeous! This shade leaves my lips with a gorgeous shiny, luscious pink sheen and it is quite pigmented. It smells/tastes really nice, it makes my lips looks fuller and it is a great travel size. Although as with most lip glosses my hair does stick to it and it doesn't last long on me.
