July GlossyBox: Ready, Steady, Glow!

Hello ladies!

As you may remember back in May, I reviewed the May GlossyBox (Link!), skip forward to July and the lovely ladies wanted to send me this months GlossyBox to give a whirl and share my thoughts with you lovely lot!

It arrived this morning and i went from fast asleep within literally 3 seconds flat so i could rip open my GlossyBox! I didnt even get my camera (which is strange for me!) As i was very intrigued as to what was waiting inside for me! I must admit, I am not disapointed & know i will get a lot of use from the goodies inside!
♥ Ciate Nail Enamel in 'Big Yellow Taxi' ♥
I have used Ciate Nail polishes in the past and have always been impressed with them. This looks super bright in the bottle but i have been lusting after a yellow polish for Summer for a while and definitely think this will cater to my needs. This is a full size bottle that would retail at £7.95. 
♥ Illamasqua Pure Pigment in 'Marvel' ♥
Most of you that read my blog knows that i am a massive lover of Illamasqua and that it is one of my all time favourite Make Up brands, so i was extremely happy to see this in my box! I have never used any of the pure pigments, but have always read rave reviews on them! It is multi purpose so can be used on eyes or cheeks, and is a gorgeous shimmery yellow-gold colour. I will definitely get a lot of use out of this! Again, this is full size and retails for £15.50.
♥ Inlight Organic Daily Face Oil ♥
I have never heard of the brand Inlight but after a quick google search i found out that they are a Organic Skincare company and this particular product was a winner of the 'Best Facial Oil' in the 2009 Natural Health Beauty Awards so i definitely have high hopes for this product! I have been wanting a face oil for a while so i will see how i get on with this! This is a full size, 30ml product and retails on the website for £25. 
♥ Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Oil ♥
Again, another brand that i havent previously heard of. This is the Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Oil, which contains only plant oils, is suitable for vegans and is meant to leave you with hydrated, smooth and supple skin. I have never used a oil on my body to keep it moisturised so i look forward to trying this product out as i absolutely love the smell of pomegranate! This is a 100ml full size bottle and retails for £19.95 on the Weleda Website.
♥ Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Sample ♥
I have just reviewed the Xen Tan Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe Ultra Dark (Link!) so i was pleasantly surpised when i saw this 30ml travel size in my glossy box! I have never tried this particular product from Xen Tan so again i am looking forward to trying it and i think the 30ml size is perfect for this as a try before you buy. It can be used on both face and body so i think i will keep this as a face tanner as i currently dont have one, to see how i get on with it. The full size (236ml) Xen Tan deep bronze luxe retails for £28.99 here.

Overall, I am extremely happy with this months GlossyBox, as as suggested think it is perfect to give you that Summer Glow!

You can sign up to GlossyBox HERE! However, there is a slight change since last time i reviewed. Firstly, if you sign up now you wont get the box until September, with shipping late September, but fear not that is only 2 months time & you are only missing out on the one box and secondly, come September, GlossyBox are adding £2.95 for shipping. 

I still think it makes this box extremely affordable and going on the contents of this months box, I have received 4 full size products and a luxury sample size that would cost well in excess of the monthly subscription price, and remember you can cancel at any time! 

Another thing to let you know is that another feature of the GlossyBox Website is that they have now put together a online magazine called The GlossyBook (Link!), which contains information and features around the products you will receive in the monthly box, a perfect addition to the site i do believe!

The packaging as always is absolutely outstanding and i use the boxes for storage! 

Have you received this months GlossyBox? What are your thoughts?

  1. hmmm i like the pigment you got, it looks lovely, seems like people are getting lots of different nail varnish colours. I have seen a couple of different variations on the box so far and like them all. I'm still happy with mine :D

  2. Have to say I am super duper happy with this month's box :D I didn't realise that people were getting different coloured nail polishes - I got Kitten Heels, a lovely red with gold shimmer :D I also got Nouveau Lashes falsies and an Illamasqua Lipgloss, the Xen Tan and the Weleda oil :D Even more impressed that it arrived on my birthday! xx

  10. Mine came this morning too! Its was my first one as by the time I had ordered it in May they had sold out for June :( Mines got a few different products to you, my nail paint is purple/pink and the eye shadow is purple too. I also have a lip gel and Ultrasun protection instead of your day face oil and the xen-tan. They all seem pretty good! Very happy xxx

  15. I love how everyone's is pretty different this month! Loving all the different colours of ciate polish. The only thing I can't really find use for is the pigment (wish I'd got the gloss!) but you can't win all of them :) xxx

  18. Wow this is a good box!!!
    I've used weleda products before and i've never been disappointed. they also sell a homeopathic range. all their products are natural and not full of chemicals. If there was one product of theirs i would recommend it would be Skin Food ... aqbsolutely amazing moisturiser.
    Enjoy your goodies ... very jealous. xxx
