The Summer LooksEdition

 The beginning of June has been a real pleasure, whether I have been down south in the capital or at home in Yorkshire the weather has been blissful.
It was a nice surprise to arrive home to this months Glossybox, which is aptly named
The Summer Looks box.

Lets take a look inside..

Growth Mascara

"This mascara promises visibly longer lashes after two weeks of use thanks to 
SymPeptide Xlash, a growth activator.
The special rubber brush gives length and volume to the lashes, while small rubber 'hairs' seperate the lashes and a bulk reservoir ."
*Perfume and Paraben free.

- The packaging feels very luxurious and I love the concept of a mascara that actually benefits the lashes as opposed to contributing to them falling out.
The wand is unlike any mascara wand that I have used before I usually opt for the thicker, bristle brushes so a plastic applicator will be a new experience for me.
I am looking forward to seeing if there are any noticable changes in the quality of my lashes.

*I have since been trying the mascara for a week and I absolutely LOVE it… The brush is some kind of miracle worker it lengthens and volumises all without clumping.

MeMeMe Cosmetics
66 Innocent

"The names of the MeMeMe polishes are inspired by the inherent qualities possessed by a true free spirit, each and every gloss tells a story."

- I must say that I am really unwowed by the colour of this polish, completely the opposite shade to something I would wear, it is a really unflattering colour.
I have experienced this before with other MeMeMe shades that have been included in previous Glossyboxes.
Not really a Hollie shade unfortunately.

Organic Surge
Shine Boost Conditioner

"Organic Surge Haircare contains no harsh chemicals and is totally free of commonly-used silicones that can dull and weigh down your hair."

- I am really interested in trying this conditioner as anything to boost shine in my freshly dyed barnet.
I am looking forward to trying a natural hair product as my hair is already loaded with chemicals.
It smells divine a real fruity and fresh smell.

Figs and Rouge
Multi Tasking Lip Balm
"Packed with AntiOxidants this lip balm can be used on cuticles, dry skin and can also be used for adding shimmer to the skin."

- I have been a huge fan of Figs and Rouge for a long time having tried their Rose balm before.
I love the kooky packaging and since I have a current obsession with multitaking balms this is 
perfect for my handbag and I can tell it will become a makeup bag staple.
I have the Cherry Blossom fragrance that smells distinctly like those old corkers..Cherry Chapsticks!

Monu Spa
Hand and Nail Cream
"Finding a rich, non greasy hand cream for summer is not easy however this hand cream is designed to protect and care for hand and nails with uplifting oils."

- Although the number of hand creams that I am accumulating from Glossyboxes is becoming insane.
I have tried a Monu product from a beauty box before and have been impressed with the quality.
The cream is citrusy and fresh, perfect for adding some zing to my dry hands.

- Overall this months box is okay.
The mascara and multi purpose balm are my highlights with the rest of the offering being a little samey.
Alas, I look forward to seeing what is included in next months box.

  1. i got the same as you except nail polish is a metallic gold kind of shade. I think it was a pretty good box, all full size products and i really like most things

  2. I got that shade of polish as well. It's actually okay with one coat, as more of a sheer, natural gloss. But it looks really bad opaque!

    Colour Shimmer Sparkle

  3. I'm really tempted by the lip balm! It looks like it would work a treat on my chapped lips

  4. What a great box! I got the Figs & Rouge lipbalm too which I absolutely love.

  5. I had pretty much the same as you, only a different conditioner and nail polish colour, I definitely think it was the best variation this month.
