June 2012 GlossyBox - The 'Sexy Summer' Edition
Billed as the 'Sexy Summer' Glossybox, June's box promised to contain samples of the perfect Summer products. Here is what was sent in my box this month -
HD Brows - HD Brows Precision Tweezers £19.95 (full size)
Top of the items value wise, I am looking forward to comparing these tweezers with the Tweezerman version which are my absolute favourites, I have had the same pair for many years now.
BM Beauty - Summer Warmth Bronzer £8 for 4g (I was sent a 1g sample pot)
I love bronzers but have yet to try a pure mineral one so it will be interesting to try this out, I hope it is not too messy!
Caudalie - Eaux Fraiches £26 for 50ml ( I was sent a 10ml sample spray)
In the box could have been any one of 3 fragrances from this collection. I received Thé des Vignes a gorgeously Summer scent that is described on the Caudalie website as a particularly sweet and sensual water that combines sensual notes of white musk and neroli with a hint of ginger liquor, with an infusion of orange blossom and jasmine. I think it is beautiful and an excellent size sample to try out and perfect to pop in your handbag or take on holiday with you.
Vichy - Dermablend Ultra-Corrective Foundation Cream Stick
In this starter kit are 6 sample pods of various shades of this legendary foundation, I am curious to give this a go. Hello flawless skin! Although. I personally think that it may have been better to receive a generous sized tinted moisturiser which is infinitely more summery than a full coverage product.
GlossyBox - Serie Exclusiv Pro Beauty Brush £15
The 5th item is an own brand professional makeup brush made from natural goat hair which promises a super soft makeup application. I will try this out with the bronzer enclosed.
Overall I think the June box that I received was great, I will use/try all of the products enclosed. My only quibble is Glossybox describing the box as a 'Sexy Summer' box as I am not sure all the products really fulfill the theme of the box.
