The June US Glossybox landed on my doorstep last weekend. For those who don't already know, Glossybox is a monthly subscription beauty box that delivers deluxe beauty samples and is available in 19 countries. It recently made its US premiere back in April.
I had no idea what would be inside for this month so I immediately opened it.
The box itself is a cute and sturdy, pale pink box that can be kept and reused for small storage. I like that it only has a small logo in the center. This month's box comes with a notecard about its summer theme of simplicity and lists the products with brief descriptions on the back (I've included them below with pictures). There is also a small Glossy magazine which has short articles of tips, trends, and beauty product ads.
The box is very nicely packaged and presented with a simple pink ribbon.
Here are the goods!
BeautyAddicts Show Off Mascara. This unique formula with argon oil will give your lashes an intesnse, dramatic look without climps or smudges.
I was pleasantly surprised to find this full-sized mascara in the box. I hadn't heard of the brand before but who can't used a jet black mascara?
First Aid Beauty Smooth Shave Cream. Smooth Shave Cream is a gentle, non-irritating formula containing everything you need to obtain a close, long-lasting shave. Keep your legs looking smooth and sexy all summer long.
Truthfully not the most exciting product since, lets be honest, I wouldn't want to spend a lot of money on shaving cream but this is a cute, small size that will be appreciated when taken on a short, getaway trip.
Kinerase Restructure Firming Cream. Erase the years from your face with elastin-strengthening technology that visibly transforms and contours your skin.
I haven't used any Kinerase products before but I am familiar with the brand. I look forward to trying this out.
Wella Professionals Enrich Moisturizing Treatment. Create free flowing hair with this lightweight treatment containing silk extract that instantly restores your mane.
This moisturizing treatment is to repair dry and damaged hair. I will hold off on testing this out until I know my hair's been weathered down by our hot summer.
Shea Terra Organics Ultimate Moisturizing Body Creme. This moisturizing cream for the whole body is made with 30% organic shea butter, leaving your skin smooth and soft.
I love shea butter moisturizers so I'll definitely put this to use. It has a very minty smell which surprisingly I don't mind, as I imagine it will smell refreshing on a really hot day.
Lastly is this A Perfume Organic Urban Organic sample. This was my least favorite item in the box. The fragrance smells more like an aromatherapy scent not something I'd want to wear. I think it's because the ginger note is really strong.
Overall, I think this month's box was well put together and very thoughtful for its summer theme. I like that it has less makeup products (which I can be a bit picky about and already have tons of) and instead has mostly skin care and hair care samples. Personally, I find those a lot more useful. I'm curious as to what July's box will be like!
Did anyone else get this Glossybox or Glossybox in another country?
