First Impressions: Glossy Box- July

Thursday, 21 July 2011
Hiya,

I was so excited to receive this months' Glossybox because I was intrigued to know what would be inside. There was a lot of controversy over June's box but I personally was quite happy with what I had received. This month, I think it is unlikely very many will be disappointed with what they get.



  1. Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Oil

This is a full sized 100ml product which retails at £19.95. It is an oil for application all over the body which claims to elasticise, hydrate and smoothen skin. I have used Weleda products before and have not had anything to complain about. I'm looking forward to seeing how well this works out.

2. Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe- Dark
 This is a 30ml self-tanner that I probably will never use. It is probably the only disappointing product for me. I never use tanning products so it isn't for me but I'm pretty sure a lot of Glossy Box customers do use them so it will impress most! The full size 236ml retails at around £15-20.

3. Nouveau Strip Lashes

 
I am not a regular user of fake eye lashes but on special occasions I do like to wear them. These ones in particular are not too crazy looking so I will definitely be wearing them at some point. I'm not too sure about the usual price of these lashes.

4. Ciate Nail Enamel- Kitten Heels 036
 I was really surprised to see this nail polish. The main reason is because it was only a couple of days ago that I was thinking about this brand and wondering whether or not I should try one of them out! I'm definitely very happy with this. It has a flat brush too which is something I like. This retails at £9.

5. Illamasqua Sheer Lip gloss- Explode

This is a shade that I would never normally purchase. I feel like these shades don't suit my skin tone but having swatched it, I feel like it has a really pretty iridescence to it which will look really good on top of a lipstick or even on its own when applied lightly.  This normally sells for £13.

Overall, I am really pleased with this box. I wasn't expecting it to be this good but it definitely surpassed my expectations.

What do you think of the products this month?

  1. Very chuffed with my box! Would've liked the lashes though - my nail varnish is a different shade to yours, I think I may have wore the red more but have got a blue called 'skinny jeans' instead. Also my illamasqua product was a powder :-)

    Think they have definitely tried to make up for the shambles that was the June box!

  10. You did well, better than me. My nail polish is shrek green. Instead of the lashes I received a 5ml perfum sample, Instead of the Xen-Tan I received a 15ml spf for the face and my Illamasqua product is a highlighting powder.

    Anyone want to swap :)
