June Glossybox.

It was a long wait for me to get my June Glossybox, but so far I think it was worth it. After reading all the negative feedback on social networking sites about how this box was not worth anything, I have to say I wasn't really looking forward to receiving my box. However, when I actually tried out the products I was really impressed and now I'm looking forward to July's box! Here is what I got:

Glossybox Serie Exclusiv Pro Beauty Brush: I don't mind getting brushes and other make-up applying tools in my box and I needed a new brush as my one has completely worn out! This brush is nice and soft, I found that applying bronzer with it was really easy. It retails at £15.00 and I have to say I wouldn't pay that much money for one brush unless it came from a designer name and I reeeally wanted it, but I do like it and I'm happy it was included in my box. The brush is made from natural goat hair which is a plus for most women and I have to say it is super soft, but I don't really like using animal products so for me that's the only downside.

HD Brows Precision Tweezers: Woo I got the tweezers in my box! Which apparently was the prize winning item of this months goodies. I loved my HD Brow Gel (you can read last months box review here) so I've kinda become a fan of HD Brows now! And I can't wait to see if my next box will have something from them. The tweezers are good quality, easy to use and at retail price of £19.95 I think they were a great item to be featured in the box. If you already have tweezers and are happy with yours, HD Brows tweezers would make a perfect gift as they come in a neat little box!

BM Beauty Summer Warmth Bronzer: This mineral bronzer is the perfect summer skin boost! The pot is little but not to worry as mineral make-up goes such a long way! You only need a little sprinkle, then use your brush to swirl and pick up all the mineral particles, then sweep over your cheeks! I like to smile when I put my bronzer on as it highlights your cheekbones and looks more natural. Mineral make-up is also really good for your skin, I found since I started using it, my skin has got better, less spots, less red patches, more natural glow. And this is a bad, bad habit but if you ever rock up to bed at 3am after a night out and forget to take off your make-up, minerals are less likely to give you spots the following day.

Green People Sun Lotion SPF15 with Tan Accelerator: Ok, so this item really upset me when I saw it as it reminds me of being in the sun, on the beach, and all it's done for the past months is rain!! I did try it out, the product boasts in natural antioxidants and moisturizing protection, it feels really good on skin, not sticky and smells nice. And it really did make my skin feel soft, even after an hour of application. It comes in a generous size tube, and would be perfect to take on a weekend away on the sun!
8/10 (The 8 is only because I can't test it out in the sun. Yet.)

Vichy Dermablend Ultra-Corrective Foundation Cream Stick: This make-up stick says it covers up minor to severe skin flaws and some of the examples they have are dark circles under the eyes, acne and red patches. I have to say when I saw the size of the tester I thought it would last me one go, however, I used it under my eyes and also on some places where I have scars (left from my teenage days of pimples!) and I'm not even a quarter way through! I think this tester will last me a while, at least a month. It's nice and soft, I went for the Porcelain shade as I am quite fair skinned and it really freshened up my face (Last picture is me wearing Vichy). The only thing I didn't like is after I applied it and set it with powder, it did gather under my eyes and by my nose so I had to smooth it out again. The retail price is £19.00 and I do think it's worth the spend if you have problem skin or uneven skin tone.

So, I really liked this box and the products in there, and I'm now impatiently awaiting my next box! If you would like to find out more or subscribe to Glossybox visit http://www.glossybox.co.uk/
