I know I’m a bit behind with this post, but I wanted to give you my overview of this month’s GlossyBox anyway! It will actually be my last GlossyBox post as I have now unsubscribed from the service..
So my June GlossyBox turned up earlier than I had expected and as always I tore away at the packaging to reveal what was in store for this month. Sadly, I was underwhelmed yet again . 🙁
Here’s what was inside my box:
1) GLOSSYBOX SERIE EXCLUSIV PRO BEAUTY BRUSH – “This classic series natural goat hair blush brush gives a super-soft make-up application.”
This brush reminds me of a paint brush. The bristles are not the softest and it’s all quite stiff, so needless to say I won’t be using this on my face. This also counted as one of the “samples” too which I wasn’t expecting..
2) HD BROWS – HD BROWS PRECISION TWEEZERS – “For eyebrow maintenance at home or on the go, HD Brows Precision Tweezers are a must for every girl’s make-up bag.”
These tweezers were the highlight of the entire box for me. It’s always nice to have a spare pair of tweezers, and it is of reasonable quality. However these won’t be replacing my Tweezermans anytime soon though.
3) BM BEAUTY – SUMMER WARMTH BRONZER – “Multi-purpose pure-mineral bronzer. Add a touch of summer warmth to your face.”
I don’t really use bronzer, so I intend to use this as an eyeshadow instead. It’s a bit messy tho, and I managed to get the bronzer all over me just trying to swatch it!
4) CAUDALIE – EAUX FRAICHES – “Refresh your senses with these invigorating and energising fragrances.”
This scent is a mix of Grapefruit, Tangerine, Cedar which sound lovely, but is much too overpowering for my taste. My mum has taken a liking to it though so I’ve given it to her.
5) VICHY – DERMABLEND ULTRA-CORRECTIVE FOUNDATION CREAMSTICK – “Vichy’s expert camouflage foundation stick for minor to severe skin flaws.”
I was quite excited by this at first, because I’d seen a few reviews about the Vichy Foundation Creamstick but the description is very misleading because you don’t get an actual creamstick.. It’s actually a starter kit sheet with 6 sample shades. I will probably play around with the shades to find a match for my skin when I’ve got time on hand.
(L to R – 11 Porcelain, 12 Opal, 13 Light, 14 Nude, 15 Sand, 16 Bronze)
So there you have it, my very last GlossyBox post! I have now signed up to the Jolie Box having heard some very positive reviews, so fingers crossed it works out better! I’m not sure if I will continue with these Beauty Box type posts as I have noticed they are repetitive. If anyone would like me to still continue with them though, please let me know! Maybe I’ll just showcase the boxes that I really love instead of every box each month!
Any GlossyBox subscribers still out there? What are your thoughts on this month’s box?
Love Sophia xo
I was underwhelmed by this months box too, but I’ve decided to stick it out and see what is in the July box (I’m going by the hopes that the June one was so rubbish so the July one can only get better)
I subscribed last month to Jolie box and I received the birthday box which I’ve been quite impressed with, although I’ve not had time to really try anything out yet! I’ve been quite impressed with the She Said Beauty boxes too!
Glad to hear you were impressed with the Jolie Box 🙂 I’m really looking forward to receiving my first one! I’m only sad that it didn’t work out between me and GlossyBox. It to me started off brilliantly, then over the next few months I started to get more and more underwhelmed.. Hope you have better luck! x
