Glossybox June 2016 Reveal and Review

WP_20160610_16_24_07_Pro

The June Glossybox (UK) arrived in the post today, as well as no less than four other boxes-I really wish more companies would stagger their deliveries for later in the month! Read on for my reveal of the June 2016 Glossybox contents, and my thoughts on the edit at the end.

Glossybox costs £10 per month (plus £3.25 shipping) for the one month option, with discounts available for longer-term subs. So, what was in the June Glossybox UK edit? Here’s my reveal.


Emite Make Up Lip and Cheek Tint

This full-sized lip and cheek tint has an RRP. of £12.50, and has a very watery texture. Despite the dark shade shown above, this was virtually invisible when applied.


De Bruyere After Sun Lotion Monoi

This colourful 50ml tube is a hydrating, cooling after sun lotion with vitamin E and gardenia petals soaked in coconut oil. It has a very strong, almost artificial floral and coconut smell, which I personally did not like.

The box leaflet says this has an RRP. of £9.48, although I am not sure what size that reflects-interestingly, I cannot find it offered for sale anywhere in any size, not even on the De Bruyere website (as shown on the box leaflet), which seems to be aimed at beauty retailers and does not appear to sell products!


Ladival Sun Protection Spray SPF 15

This large (full size, 150ml) pump spray bottle contains an SPF of 15, and is both water resistant and suitable for sensitive skin. RRP. £19.99.


Starskin “Eye Catcher” Smoothing Bio-Cellulose Eye Mask

Subscribers received two of these sachets, each of which contain a pair of serum-infused eye masks to reduce puffiness and dark circles. RRP. £8.50.


Spa to You Konjac Sponge

Konjac sponges are made from the fibre of the konjac root, and are becoming really popular in beauty circles. This item is full sized, and costs £6.99.


Aussie Hair Care 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor (Deep Conditioner)

The final product in the box was this single-use 20ml sample of Aussie’s 3 Minute Miracle deep conditioner, with an RRP. of £1.09.


My Verdict

Whilst this wasn’t the most exciting Glossybox ever in terms of beauty discovery, it did contain a lot of very usable items that I will no doubt work my way through. I have a minor chip on my shoulder about paying the often high prices for sunscreen, which I see as an essential in the summer, and so the SPF spray and after sun will be useful!

I am keen to give the konjac sponge a go too, and see what all the hype is about!

Single-use eye masks are something I only came across recently and so I will be interested to see how the Starskin product works out, and aside from the lip/cheek tint which I found did not show up (and I have very fair skin) this was a good quality edit in terms of the number of products I will use and their value, and is also very timely for the coming summer.

You can sign up to Glossybox for £10 per month (plus shipping) here.
