GlossyBox | June 2013

Hey Guys!
So as we storm through July, I was just thinking about reviewing my July GlossyBox, when I remembered that I am yet to review June's!!! So here it is!

The theme for this box was Summer Looks so it included bright, fresh products to get you ready for the wonderful summer! I really quite enjoyed this box, and I think it has been one of my favourites so far!

Hugo Boss Boss Jour - I have always loved the fragrances that come from Boss, and this one was no different. It has a lovely floral smell to it, but not the kind of overpowering muggy scent that your Nan wears that feels like you have flowers shoved up your nose. It smells light and summery and I just wish that the tester was larger!! Due to the small size, I have saved this for various special occasions, and been glad that I have as I received quite a few compliments about it. For the full 50ml bottle, you pay £49. This is pricey but not too expensive, certainly not as expensive as I was expecting. Nevertheless, still too expensive for poor old me haha but I definitely recommend it.

Helen E Cosmetics Shimmer Eye Powder - I have recently become a massive fan of eye powders, so I was pretty pleased to have received this one in my box. It is so easy to apply and blend, and can give an effortless yet pretty glow. I love golds and this one has become my new favourite in my makeup bag. I love it because it brightens my eyes and gives my eye lids a summery shine. It is £5 for 1.5g, which doesn't sound a lot, however, this product lasts for such a long time, it would be worth spending a fiver on it! I am actually considering purchasing this because I will probably be lost once the tester runs out.

Figs & Rouge Coco Rose - I have previously received a lip product from Figs & Rouge so I had high hopes for this one, and it didn't disappoint. It left my lips feeling soft and moisturised for ages, and the slight tint made them look fuller. You also don't need to apply very much so this tube has lasted me ages! It smells great too which is a bonus, although I wouldn't be able to tell you what it smells of as I am hopeless at describing smells. The full size is 12.5ml and that is £5. It is quite pricey considering there are a lot of cheaper lip balms that do a similar thing, however, if you want to treat your lips, this product is definitely worth checking out.

Sarah Chapman Skinesis Skin Tone Perfecting Booster - This was the one product in, I think, all of my boxes, that I completely finished within the month! I used it every morning and evening and saw the effects pretty quickly. My skin felt more smooth and a lot softer, and I noticed that it looked a lot healthier. I am a victim of oily skin, and usually have a problem with it during the day, however, using this helped to control my shinyness and made me less oily. I have loved using this product and would love to keep using it. It is £57 for 30ml which is really quite expensive, I was definitely not expecting it to be more expensive than the perfume, and unfortunately, it is too expensive for me. I definitely recommend it though!

Me Me Me Cosmetics Long Lasting Nail Gloss (58, Indulgent) - I have a confession. I haven't actually tried this product. The reason being, the colour is too dark for this time of year, it looks more Autumn/Winter than Spring/Summer. So there really isn't much I can say about it haha. There have been mixed reviews about this product so it would have been helpful of me to have tried it! Sorry guys! I can, however, tell you that it is £5, which is an okay price for a nail varnish.

So that's the box! I have generally been pleased with it and feel that (apart from the nail polish) it has been getting me ready for the summer. My July box has already arrived and I am looking forward to reviewing it for you! I promise to try all the products this time haha. 

Have you tried any of these products? What's your opinion of them?
