June 2013 GlossyBox: Summer Looks!

Hello! It feels like forever since I sat down to write a blog post, I've been chained to my laptop for the past week with a looming essay deadline but that's all done and dusted now and I'm excited to get back into the swing of blogging!

I can't believe it's June already, they're completely right when they say that time really does fly! I hope you're having a lovely month so far and are enjoying some summer sunshine! It seems the guys over at GlossyBox are as excited about the arrival of the sunshine (finally!) as we are and the June 2013 GlossyBox♦ is the summer looks edition aiming to help us transition into summer as seamlessly as possible! On first impressions I'm really impressed, every single product is a full size! Here's what's in my box this month...

MONU SPA HAND AND NAIL CREAM.
I'll start with my least favourite product in my box, which is the Monu Spa Hand and Nail Cream. Hand creams aren't something I generally get excited about, I really like Soap & Glory Hand Food and L'Occitane hand creams which I don't really tend to deviate from, but this is in no way a bad product or a disappointing sample. I've given this a little try and I think it's quite nice. It didn't feel too thick, it seemed to sink in fairly quickly and my hands were left feeling super soft. I've passed this on to my mama because she loves hand creams and so far she's been absolutely loving it - thumbs up! This is a full sized 50ml product and retails for £10.95.

ORGANIC SURGE SHINE BOOST CONDITIONER.
Organic Surge is a brand I'm really familiar with so I was really happy to see a product from them nestled inside this box. This is the Shine Boost Conditioner which promises to detangle and add gloss to the hair with organic grapefruit and citrus essential oils. I'm super excited to try this, shine is something I always struggle to achieve without weighing my hair down and making it look greasy so I'm looking forward to seeing if this works for me. This is a full sized 200ml product that retails for £5.99.

MEMEME COSMETICS LONG LASTING NAIL GLOSS. 
Minty nail polish colours are my absolute favourites and although I probably already own one to many, I'm always happy to add to my collection. This is the MeMeMe Cosmetics Long Lasting Gloss Nail Polish in the shade Pensive. I've tried a few MeMeMe polishes before, I've always been impressed by the lasting power and they usually apply really well with one or two coats. I'll definitely be wearing this shade a lot this summer time! This is a full sized product and retails for £5.

FIGS & ROUGE CHERRY BLOSSOM TINTED LIP BALM.
Figs & Rouge is a brand that GlossyBox introduced me to a little while ago. I've been through two of their lip balms that come in the little tins and I absolutely love them so I was excited to see the Cherry blossom Tinted Lip Balm. A relaxed make up look in the warmer months is something I'm all about and tinted balms epitomise easy-going for me. So far I am absolutely loving this, it's really moisturising and it gives a really pretty sheer rosy tint to the lips, which I think is lovely! The packaging is also super adorable. This is a full sized product and retails for £4.95.

GOSH GROWTH MASCARA.
Finally, the last product in my box this month is the GOSH Growth Mascara. I'm very intruiged by this, I would very much like longer lashes because mine are a little on the short side and this promises results after just 2 weeks of use. I think I'll take some pictures of my lashes now and then again after using this for 2 weeks to see if there's any difference. The mascara itself is quite nice, I really like the small plastic brush because you can really get in and coat even the smallest lashes and it seems to add a nice amount of volume. The formula doesn't really lengthen all that much and it seems to clump if you add a little too much product, but I've only used it once so far. This is another full sized product and retails for £8.49.

  8. I love your glossybox posts Jennie! We nearly always get the same products so I like to have a look before I get mine. I think Glossybox are doing really well lately with the balance of make-up, skincare, and haircare! Xxx

  15. I'm always amazed how I seem to get completely different products from everyone else in my Glossybox's. I didn't get any make up but I did get some hair products. I'm happy with it though :) http://newwithhashtags.co.uk/glossybox-june-2013/#more-1449

  19. It's nice to see such a cute and tropical looking box! I'm just disappointed that they chose such a boring colour for the nail polish, it would have been a great chance to have something really bright and pretty.

    1. I think they can be quite hit and miss at times, it's definitely a risk each month because you don't know if you're going to like the products you receive but if you like surprises & have the spare money I think it's great! xo

  27. I had the same as you, only a different conditioner and nail polish colour, I definitely think it was the best variation this month.
