Beauty Box: Glossybox June 2013

I don't know what to think of June's Glossybox*, there's a good range of products, nothing really targeted to specific skin types/tones which is great but it's just not for me.

John Frieda Frizz Ease Original Serum - I'm pretty sure I've tried this before and hated it. It made my hair sticky and greasy no matter how much or how I applied it. It also did nothing to control the frizz. My mum likes other products from this range so I might pass it onto her to try and see if she gets on better with it than I did.

Figs & Rouge Coco-Rose Lip Balm - I was excited to see a Figs & Rouge lip balm in this box as I love the mint version I have. I was disappointed when I opened it though as it's glittery and quite sticky, not in a good way either, more like a lip gloss.

Helen E Cosmetics Waterproof Protective Lip Liner - This is the one product I know I'm going to use and enjoy. It's a lovely pink with a hint of coral and is actually very creamy for a liner. I'll be trying this all over the lips as well as underneath lip balm.

Monu Professional Skincare Hydrating Moisturiser SPF 15 - I have enough face moisturisers to last me a life time so I'll be passing this onto my mum to try. Also I feel like with spf 15, there isn't really any point in having it in there as I only use spf 50 on my face. I know my mum wont mind this as her skin isn't as fair as mine and she tans quite easily.

Mememe Cosmetics Eye Inspire Mono Eye Shadow - I would have liked a more interesting colour than a matte dark brown as I know I wont really use this. I hardly every use matte shades and much prefer shimmer in an eye shadow. There's also a lot of fall out when you apply it although it does blend out quite nicely.

Lets hope next months Glossybox and this months Birchbox are better!


  1. I cancelled my box last month and was worried this would make me rethink it, which it hasn't! They're nice enough products but nothing really excites me.

  2. I'd actually be really upset if I'd purchased this, as I would only use the eyeshadow at a push. If less rose products were included in boxes, I'd definitely give them a shot but otherwise I'd be throwing money away! x

  3. Post's like this make me put off getting Glossybox! No-one seems to be impressed with this months at all :/ uh oh!


  4. Not one of their better boxes I admit. Depending on colour match I guess the matte eyeshadow could be used to fill in eyebrows.
