Glossybox June 2012!

Thursday, June 21, 2012
I received my June Glossybox two days ago and I thought I would share with you what I received in my Glossybox! Everyone subscribed to Glossybox can receive slightly different items in their boxes, for example, there may be various shades of one product.

There are two products in this box that I was very excited about when I noticed them. The two products are the Dermalogica three product set and the Vichy derma blend foundation/concealer. There is also a Yves Rocher mini mascara and I love the Yves Rocher brand so this product is a great addition to this months box. There is also a BM beauty product and BM beauty is a brand that has been featured in a previous Glossybox and I didn't really like the brand. Lastly, there is a Glossybox pro blush brush but for the past couple of days I used it with my Kiko pressed powder. Overall, I am happy with the products in the June box - especially the Vichy and dermalogica products.

Glossybox Pro Blush Brush

I have used this brush twice now, so since I received it, and I am not very impressed with it so far. Firstly, the brush is really smooth and soft so it feels nice on the skin. Although the brush/bristles smell really strongly of plastic which isn't nice and I have just read the card included with the box and it days that this brush is composed of natural goat hair - so I probably will not continue to use this product. 2/5.

Yves Rocher Mini Ultra Volume Sexy Plump Mascara (01 Noir)

I have tried quite a few items from Yves Rocher and I really like the brand. This mascara is not waterproof which is my main issue with this product as I always wear waterproof mascara - living in England waterproof mascara really is a must have! The wand for this mascara is really quite big but not as big as my Dior show waterproof mascara wand or my Maybelline Colossal waterproof mascara wand. After using this mascara a couple of times I actually really like it - although on me this mascara is not that volumising. This mascara gives my lashes length, a little bit of volume and a natural but defined appearance. 4/5.

BM Beauty Summer Warmth Bronzer (1g)

I have tried a BM Beauty loose eyeshadow and I didn't like it mainly as it is a loose powder which I find to be messy, time consuming and inconvenient to use - this product is no exception! I hate using loose powders and this product is particularly messy if your not careful with it. The shade itself is gorgeous, it is a warm bronze sandy colour which does look quite nice on my fairly pale skin tone. 3/5.

Dermalogica Clean Start Day/Night Three Step Mini Kit

I was quite excited to see some Dermalogica products as I have wanted to try products from this brand for a while but it is quite expensive, in my opinion. You don't get one Dermalogica product, not two but three dermalogica products in a fairly large sample kit. The first product in the kit is a 'wash off foaming face wash' which is 50ml and I haven't tried this skincare set yet but this face wash smells quite nice and it looks promising. The second product in this kit is a 'all over clear purifying toner' which is 50ml again. This product also smells nice, it has a spray nozzle and I am excited to use this product. The last product is a 'welcome matte SPF moisturiser' which I can't use as I have dry skin, so I will probably give this product to my sister who has oily skin.

Vichy Derma Blend Starter Kit

This is the product I was most excited about when I saw it in the box a couple of days ago. I have been wanting to try the Vichy Derma Blend stick foundation for a while but as I have dry skin I didn't know whether it would emphasise my dryness but now I can try the product without wasting my money if it doesn't work. There are six shades in the kit from '11 Porcelain' to '16 Bronze'. This product has SPF 30, high coverage, it is water/sweat resistant and it is fragrance free/hypoallergenic. I cannot wait to try this product!
