Glossybox: June 2014 Edition.

There was no little product card inside my Glossybox* this month so I'm not entirely sure what the theme is, but I think this is probably the best box they've put together this year so far. I'm not wowed like I was with Birchbox this month, but to be fair I think that box would be pretty difficult to top.

Eyeshadow brushes always come in handy and although I really dislike the design on the handle of this one by Teeez, it's certainly one that I'll always be able to find. A base and top coat is something that always comes in handy as well. I'm trying to overcome my nail biting habit so I've slapped some glitter polish over my sad looking nails in the hope it'll help. I've put some of the Nail Girls top coat over the top of the glitter and so far so good. Not a particularly exciting product, but one that will see a lot of use I'm sure. 

Rituals is a brand that I love to see in beauty boxes because they're so reliable. Their products always smell beautiful and they really work. Mini sprays are perfect for keeping in handbags during the warmer months and that's what I'll be doing with this. It's actually nice to try an antiperspirant that's not my usual Dove or Sure and this Qi Gong scent is gorgeous.

A couple of days ago I cleared out my mascara drawer so the L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes couldn't have arrived at a more perfect time. I've never tried it before, in fact it's been a really long time since I tried a L'Oreal mascara in general. Maybe I've never tried one? I'm not sure. I'm not particularly fussy when it comes to mascaras, so as long as it doesn't sting my eyes or leave me looking like a panda I'm sure we'll get on okay.

Finally is the So Susan Concealer Quad. I believe every box will contain either this or the Universal Blush. So Susan sent me a few products from their range a couple of weeks ago and the concealer quad was one of them. Unfortunately I find all of the colours to be a little dry and they don't blend well at all on my skin. I love the idea of it, but it's not one that works for me & my skin type. If you're subscribed and you get the blush though, I think you might like that. It's a lovely colour that's really flattering and I've been reaching for it almost daily.

What do you think of this month's box? 
Are you subscribed?

  1. Seeing your box is tempting me to order one for myself!
    I'm using that L'oreal mascara at the moment and it's pretty good. It gives a lot of length in just one sweep but can clump if you keep layering it.
    I do quite like it though!

  3. Hi Jennie,

    If you're trying to grow your nails/stop biting them you should try out Sally Hansen Nail growth miracle (it's the one in the gold bottle!) I gave up biting my nails a few years back and this treatment works wonders as they grow so quickly and if you're seeing results I think you're more likely to resist biting them!! :) It's just a clear polish too so will make your nails look healthy and shiny!! (You'd swear I work for Sally Hansen - I don't! It's just an amazing product!)

  8. I'm not subscribed to any beauty boxes but I love seeing what people get in theirs to see if it can ever sway my decision. The Rituals anti-perspirant looks interesting. Like you, I usually use Dove or Sure so I'd love to know your thoughts on the Rituals one, even if it's not the most glamorous of items ;). xo

  9. I sometimes regret not being subscribed to Glossybox and Birchbox anymore, and this box seems like it has such an interesting selection of products that I do kind of wish I had ordered one!
    It's such a shame about the Oh Susan concealer, it seems like a very interesting product, conceptually.
    Would love to hear how you do get on with the mascara! xx

  11. I'm always so tempted to order these boxes, but I can never really justify it because I can't guarantee I'll get any use out of what's in them. Maybe I'll give in soon though... B xx

    1. The idea is so good, would probably work better for slightly oilier skins xo

  16. I loved my Glossybox this month, but I got this beautiful perfume in mine, did you hear about it? Japanese designer I think? I love it so much, I wish I could afford to replace it when it runs out but its like £39-49.

  19. I would have been a bit disappointed to have gotten this box. I love the Birchbox though so probably because in my head I always compare them x

  20. This looks like a fairly mixed box, although I would be happy with it for the mascara alone - L'Oreal Million Lashes actually used to be my go to when I had money (student budget has got to me, mascara £5 and under from now on!). I hope you enjoy it :) Xx
