Glossybox - Summer is HereThursday, June 19, 2014
This month's Glossybox arrived a couple of days ago and I've finally had the time to write a short review on the amazing products the Glossybox team hid inside. 'Summer is Here' is June's box theme and these 5 products complement each other perfectly.
I am going to start with my favourite from the box - So Susan Cosmetics Concealer Quad - RRP £20
It is brand new to me and I think the brand itself is quite young too - founded in 2012 by Susan Chyi. This concealer is formulated with virgin marula oil and it can be used to cover minor blemishes and imperfections. Its lightweight formula makes it ideal for summer. It blends in perfectly and very easily.
I also bought myself their Universal Blush, which I saw some people receiving in their Glossybox. My friend was one of the lucky ones and I just fell in love with this natural blush and had to get it myself.
The next one is a new launch from nailgirls 3-in-1 base, topcoat and nail strengthener - RRP £13.50 for 15ml
I am loving nail hardeners at the moment. I just finished my Nails Inc clear nail polish and was really happy to find a new one in the box!
A few days ago I made a little Avon order for some new eye shadows and was also thinking of getting new brushes - I think I know now which ones to go for - Teeez Trend Cosmetics Beautiful Flat Still Brush - RRP €19 around £15
This make-up brush is essential for my kit. It is a good quality brush, which allows me to apply powder and cream eye shadow with ease. I also like how summery it looks. Beautiful!
The next item is from French brand Roger&Gallet. Their Fleur de Figuier Eau Fraiche Fragrance has a lovely fresh fruit-floral smell. I would wear it more as a casual going-to-town-perfume and leave my other favourite scents (Dior, Viktor&Rolf) for evening events. This is a 10ml sample, 100ml is £32.
And lastly we come to Emballeze Novex Brazilian Keratin - RRP £24.99 for 1kg, mine is a sample size 100g.
This vitamin E enriched treatment replenishes essential hair proteins, resulting in shinier and smoother hair. I think I have to take a day off to try this keratin treatment on my hair. Hair needs to be washed and dried, the deep conditioning treatment applied and massaged afterwards and then leaving it to develop for 15 minutes, before again showering and rinsing well - finally in the end drying with a hair dryer. I will definitely try it in the future. It is perfect hair food for bringing back health and shine after spending lots of time in the sun.
I just love this month's Glossybox. It is absolutely worth my £10 and as I read from the Glossy magazine (a little spoiler for people considering subscribing) next month will be an exciting one with a limited edition box print and theme! Can't wait!
