Glossybox June 2012

Another month, another Glossybox...

It seemed like a lot of customers were reasonably unhappy with last month's box (or so I gathered from the comments on Facebook) but to be honest I really liked it! Granted there hasn't been many cosmetic products in the last couple of boxes but Glossybox have clearly taken that feedback on board and outdone themselves this month :) The box has a summer theme which would be great if it didn't seem like winter at the moment!

I was delighted to see I'd been given a HD Brows product this month, I missed out on the HD Brows product in the last box which left me a tad disappointed so this made up for it. I received the precision tweezers which I'll definitely be using and they retail at £19.95 so already I've got double my money's worth :)

I was also equally pleased with the Caudalie perfume sample. I know in the past I've said I don't particularly like getting perfume in beauty boxes, mainly because I think perfume is such a personal thing and what one person might think smells like heaven, another may hate. But I really love Caudalie as a brand, they're products are so natural and the perfume has a gorgeous fresh, summer scent. It's very light and slightly floral but not overbearing at all, definitely something I'll wear... Plus it's a 10ml sample which is a really generous amount. This retails at £26 for 50ml and to be honest, I'd definitely consider purchasing the full size.

The third product gets another thumbs up from me, BM Beauty's summer warmth bronzer. This is just gorgeous. It's a soft golden brown shade with a subtle shimmer that blends so easily and I'd imagine it suiting most skin tones. With my fair skin I only need a very small amount but it can be built up to your required look :) It retails at £8 for 4g.

The final 2 products are a Vichy camouflage concealer stick and a Glossybox blush brush. Not going to say much about the brush as it isn't very soft and I have my trusty Real Techniques brushes which I use all the time so I probably won't use this very much. The Vichy concealer claims to cover minor to severe skin flaws so I'm interested to try this and see how well it covers my dark circles :) I recieved 6 shades which I think is great as it means I can get a good match to my skin tone.

All in all I'm really pleased with this month's box! I'll be using most of the products and I'm impressed with the value for money this month. If you'd like to subscribe visit it's £12.95 per month which includes postage and you can cancel at any time.

If you're already a Glossybox subscriber I'd love to hear what was in your box and what you thought of your products :)

P.S. Sorry about the rubbish photos, I use my iphone which doesn't do the greatest job :(
