A few years back I used to subscribe to Glossybox, but jump forward in time and I have two little boys, time and funds (for beauty treats!) are less than they once were so I stopped the membership a while back!
However I got given a subscription as a present!! Hurrah 🎉🎉🎊🎊
This months Box was all about Summer, ideal as here in the UK we are currently having a heatwave…
The box was an interesting mix of things that I’m looking forward to trying out properly!
The main item in the box was Utan and Tone Nourishing Night Cream, it’s a hydrating cream packed full of vitamins and anti-oxidants which not only helps to repair skin overnight it also gives a lovely glow!
First impression are good, no staining of my pillow and my face (and neck) look a little golden instead of Bluey/grey!! The cost of this is usually £12.50, I like it but I’m not sure I’d spend that amount of money in it!
Next up Soft & Gentle Hair Minimise Anti-Perspirant, it has a lovely scent, and was great to use until the temperature went up and then I didn’t find it enough for me!
I usually use a roll-on from Mitchum as its the only one I’ve found that keeps me fresh all day especially running around after little ones!
However I liked the scent and the hair minimising promise, I need to use it for longer to see if this is true, which I will do when it’s not as hot, it’s RRP is also only £2.99.
Next up Icona Milano Emotion Allowed (I.e. Waterproof!) Mascara.
I do have a lot of mascaras but not a waterproof one and with the hot weather and running after little ones I do sometimes get my mascara running off my lashes, this one seems good, and also works with my contact lenses and doesn’t irritate my eyes either which is great. It’s usually £13.04 (odd price!!) I’m not that loyal to mascaras so I doubt I’d get it again, as I usually just get one that’s on offer! but you never know!
Hair on De-Tangled Brush, looks very much like my Tangle Teezer hair brush which I love, it would have to be amazing to take its place and I’m afraid to say it’s not as good!
The brush is great for detangling and using on wet hair, but I don’t find it as nice to hold as my Tangle Teezer and the bristles aren’t as strong, But if I hadn’t tried the TT I think I’d have loved the hairon, plus it’s only £6.99 so a more reasonably priced.
Finally the Blank Canvas F20 Flat Brush, I really like this it has synthetic fibres, like the Real Techniques brushes I usually use, it’s super soft and ideal for either foundation or bronzer, it’s RRP is £11.95, and I really like it.
Overall I really the liked this months Glossybox, and am really looking forward to next months box!
