Glossybox June 2016

Hi Guys,

I feel like its been forever since I've written a Glossybox related post, but to be honest, even if I had of been blogging regularly for the past few months. I don't think the past few boxes would of been worthy of a post, unfortunately they've just not wowed me. But I have hope for June, it looks like it's going to be a good one...
I had seen last month briefly, that Glossybox wanted to focus on going back to their roots. To go back to the basis of offering something new, wether its a new brand or higher end product that you possibly wouldn't go out and purchase without trying beforehand. 
 The box itself houses four full sized products, one sample size and also a little extra bonus treat as well. It really focuses on skincare this month and is definitely packed full of products to get ready for Summer.
Ladival Sun Protection Spray SPF15 - £19.99 for 150ml
This is actually one of the things that I am most excited about in the box, as I've just booked to go on holiday and have become a teeny weeny bit obsessed over SPF. I'm on the hunt for the best ones, so I will definitely be giving this a good test run! It has no scent to it and is really light in texture, so it rubs into the skin really easily and leaves no sticky residue either. Plus it has protection against UVA, UVB and Infrared A Rays, while also protecting against four times the amount of sun rays compared to other SPF's. 

De Bruyere After Sun - £9.48 for 50ml
To go along with the SPF, it seems appropriate to have an After Sun in the box as well. I love the scent from this, for some reason it reminds me of those retro sweetie necklaces you used to get as a kid. Though after further inspection of the tube, it is actually coconut, so I have no idea how I thought it smells like sweeties! It's a milk consistency, so it feels lovely and cooling on the skin, especially after a day out in the sun.

Emite Makeup Lip & Cheek Tint - £12.50 for ml
I actually thought at first that this product was a gorgeous wine liquid lipstick, however after actually opening it up, it is in fact an oil. Lip Oils are becoming all the range recently and this one also tints the lips or the cheeks too. I think I prefer this on the lips for a really natural stain, although I think with the right amount it could look really lovely as a subtle flush to the cheek over a dewy foundation. It also has such a lovely rose scent, which I think you'll either love or hate. 

Spa to You Konjac Sponge - £6.99
Konjac Sponges have been around for years now and yet I've still never tried one. I remember a few years ago, when I first started reading blogs and watching youtube they were going through a bit of a phase. However that seems to of died down over the years, but maybe they're now making a comeback! A Konjac Sponge is basically a really soft sponge, which can hold a large amount of water and exfoliates the skin gently. 

Origins Gin Zing Eye Cream - £20 for 15ml
This is another one that I love the fact its been included in this month's box, although it seems like a teeny sample, its a third of the size of the full size tub. Gin Zing is such a popular range for Origins, due to its brightening properties. This eye cream in particular, leaves you looking fresh and awake after dabbing the gel like formula gently under the eye area.

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Constructor Deep Conditioner - £1.09 for 20ml
As a bonus product this month, this little sachet was included. I will admit Im really rubbish when it comes to using conditioner and I really need to change that. Aussie is such a popular haircare brand, that I don't actually think I have ever tried. So this is my chance to boost the condition of my hair and give them a go too. It's made to target damaged hair, using Australian Balm Mint to add shine to the hair and leave it feeling a lot more manageable. 

I think overall its really not a bad box this month, nothing in there that I won't get use of and I'm really excited to try most of these products this month, unlike previous boxes recently.

  1. That little Origins product got me a little excited, haha! It is one of my favourite skin care brands, after all. Lovely read, and I can't wait for a great summer! x

  2. I had the Origins intensive over night face mask in mine which i loved! Just wish it was bigger though. The sun cream and after sun were my faves. x

  3. I miss getting Glossy Box so much.. this box looks amazing. I love the fact they've given you sun cream and after sun, that's so sweet!

  4. Do you think these beauty boxes are worth the price? I don't know if I'd use a lot of the products in there!
