Glossy box June 2016 first impressions!

Hello my little buttons!

It’s that time of the month again, here’s my first impressions on what I received in my glossy box. This month’s box is highly practical for the summer months which is great, but to be honest not the most exciting.

Ladival sun protection spray Spf 15 £19.99 from boots

This sun screen spray protects against four types of UV rays as well as being non-greasy, water resistant and free from perfume it’s suitable for sensitive and eczema prone skin. I always need spf for my children as well as myself but it’s a shame it’s factor 15 and not a 30 as I always use high protection. Practical product that will be used but not the most thrilling.

Dr Bruyere after sun lotion monoi  £9.48 from derriere.fr

On the skin theme after sun is nice touch, the tube is rather small but is beautifully presented and again will come in handy. The cream is enriched with vitamin E as well as Monoi (gardenia petals soaked in coconut oil) which sounds incredibly fancy so I think I’ll enjoy using this.

Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff  from origins.co.uk

Super small tube of eyecream, which I can’t see being the full size as its priced at £20. This little cream contains coffee beans, panax ginseng and optical brighteners. To be applied around the eye area every morning to reduce dark circles and help reduce the appearance of bags and puffiness. Even though it’s small as you only need a tiny amount I imagine you’d still get a good few uses to decided if this product is worth the investment of the full sized.

Spa To You Konjac Sponge £6.99 from spatoyou.com

This is by far the most unique random item in the glossy box, it’s made from the natural fibres of the Konjac which is a porous root vegetable from Asia! I have to admit I opened the packet straight away to have a feel, the sponge comes dampened and feels really different from your average sponge, soft and squishy are the words jumping to mind. I’m looking forward to playing with this as apparently it’ll leave your skin clean and unbelievably soft.

Emite Makeup Lip & Cheek Tint £12.50 from emitemakeup.com

I adore lip and cheek tints, especially in the summer but I do have a huge supply and don’t really need any more. The packaging is mammoth it’s like a big chunky mascara rather than a slimline liptint. I like the ombre fade on the packaging as you can see the colour within the tube. Still looking forward to playing with this because products such as these are handy for my handbag on the go.

Aussie Hair Care 3 minute miracle reconstruction deep conditioner £1.09 from aussiehair.com/uk

Last but not least is the bonus product, happy with this one as I LOVE Aussie products and so does my bleached curly hair! Hair treatments are always welcome in my house so this will be used pretty quickly, shame it’s not bigger but not the end of the world.

As you can see, practice but nothing massively exciting. The sponge is cool but not something I would of bought for myself. I’d love to hear what you thought of this month’s glossy box, did you feel the same as me? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
