GlossyBox: June 2018 - Riviera

Tuesday, June 26, 2018
I personally love beauty subscription boxes, well subscription boxes in general, as they are not only fun and good value for money but they contain so many great items for travelling and they remind me each month of the mystery and surprise I had as a child when I was allowed to buy a Claire's Accessories £5 mystery goody bags back in the 90's and early 00's. One of my favourite beauty subscription boxes has to be Glossy Box as they're always well presented, contain a good mixture of recognisable and new brands and I generally find a fair few products that I love.

*GlossyBox - June 2018 ★★★★ (4/5)
Today's review is definitely a little late (oops, sorry!) as June has been a pretty busy month with friends birthdays, catching up with friends and my dads birthday and retirement as well as a wedding rehearsal and the big day for one of my best friends, in which I was a bridesmaid. Next month should be much quieter so you'll get the review on time in July!
The theme for the July box is based on travel and the riviera (I've been lucky enough to visit parts of the french and Italian riviera and it's incredibly beautiful, especially Portofino) so I was interested to see what the box would contain! The box contains five items from a range of brands including Nip + Fab, Monu Skin and Gatineau, as well as a few others that I haven't heard of.

*Nip + Fab Glycolic Scrub Fix (sample size, 50ml)
Let's start with the brand I'm most familiar with, Nip + Fab. I've tried some of their bodycare products and I loved them (try not to cringe when looking at the photos in the linked Nip + Fab post...). I haven't tried any of their skincare but I've heard great things! The scrub contains 3% glycolic acid, salicylic acid and fine grains to exfoliate the skin and all of those ingredients have been associated with acne treatment, from what I've heard, so I was unsure whether I should try it as my skin is dry and sensitive. I did give it a go on my t-zone and it worked very well although I would still be cautious with it on my sensitive skin.

*Gatineau Gentle Eye Makeup Remover (sample size, 50ml)
The first two products within this post are both described as 50ml sample sizes but they are very decent sizes and they'd be great for travelling! I love that GlossyBox doesn't include skincare sample sachets in their boxes. Gatineau is a brand that is regularly included in various subscription boxes and I have liked their products but if I'm completely honest, they don't excite me at all. However, I have liked using this product, it is pretty effective and doesn't irritate my skin or eyes.
*Monu Skin Eye Cool Gel (full size, 15ml)
The final skincare item is a product that is ideal for the ridiculous heatwave we have in the UK right now (the current temperature is 28 degrees Celsius in Manchester...I have been using this eye gel since I received the box a couple of weeks ago and it's perfect for this time of the year as it's hydrating and great under concealer but it is also light weight and refreshing!

*Noven Mystic Black Hair Mask (full size, 100ml)
The next three products are all full size which is fantastic - Glossybox seems to have the most full size products in their boxes. This is probably my favourite item from the box along with the eye gel as it's such a lovely and quietly effective hair mask. It is a no-frills hair mask that my dry, coloured treated hair has been loving recently and I will be looking out for it when I've used up this tub.

*Laritzy Cosmetics Shade Stix (full size)
Last but not least is make-up item, we all know that makeup items are my favourites to receive in beauty boxes! I haven't heard of this brand before but it looks interesting. This shade stix can be used as a bronzer or cream contour but I have only been using it as the former because the warmth of the shade is too much to use as a contour on my ghostly pale skin. It's a lovely creamy bronzer, it blends well with a stiff contour brush and it looks so pretty on the skin for the summer!

For this box Glossybox has partnered with leading haircare brand Remington to secretly include exclusive golden tickets inside 5 lucky Glossyboxes. Those lucky enough to receive a golden ticket will win 1 of 5 ProLuxe hair tools from the Remington Range!

Overall, I'm very happy with this months box, especially considering the value of the box which is £54.50! My favourite items have to include the eye gel and the hair mask. The sneak peek for the July box is very exciting and I can't wait to see the other items included! You still have time to get your hands on this box as it will be available until the 1st July!

What do you think of the June GlossyBox? Have you tried any of these products?

Note: I'm going to the Manchester Eats food festival next month, you still have time to get your tickets, check out this link for more information!
