I had been waiting and waiting for my first ever GlossyBox, the June edition, curated by Dallas Shaw. With the spoilers and great reviews I was more than willing to pay for the box, it was just the waiting that was killing me!
Packaging was MIND-BLOWING. It started with this cute polka-dot logo brown and light pink box, then there was another box inside, white with gorgeous artwork and a mini magazine/brochure…
…AND THEN within that box, it was all wrapped up with tissue paper and a bow. Lots of effort.
It came with a guide that showed all of the brands and products included, just in case you weren’t sure about an item or wanted to read more up on it.
So, here’s the first look!
c. Booth Honey Almond Nourishing Dry Oil Mist not only smells amazing, it felt great too! I know this brand already, so I was really excited to see it included in this months subscription box, plus it was an item I had not tried before. I will definitely be using this, and still can’t get over how yummy it smells.
The perfume samples included, all wrapped in a a silk bag were 6 samples from the Oscar de la Renta Essential Luxury Collection! I never tend to buy a full-size perfume until I have sampled and worn a perfume quite a few times, and so this is a great set because you can figure out which scents work for you! Perfect travel size + a little bag to keep it all together.
Philip B. products were included in this months box, I believe I’ve seen at least 3 different variations of hair products, however I received the African Shea Butter Gentle & Conditioning Shampoo. This brand has a good rep, so I am willing to give the product a try! I wish it was a summer sea-salt tousling spray or something of that theme, but I’m sure it’ll be great.
Next up is the SpaRitual Nail Polish in Days of Wine and Roses! I loveee this color, and I apologize because my pictures never do nil polish any justice (something with the glare and lighting) but it’s this perfect purple-burgundy color, dark enough for winter, but light enough for summer. It has a slight shimmer/sheen, but is not something I would consider sparkly or glittery. Can’t wait to use it!
And now, the whole reason I signed up for this box in the first place (well, the real push!) was the full-size tarte Complexion Enhancing Lipstick in Fair/Light. First off, I’m a fan of tarte, so when I saw this two-tone lipstick which was not only something I had not owned or tried yet, but also in colors that were supposed to boost my complexion, I was sold. It basically covers 75% of the cost of a GlossyBox too!
PLUS: I got a FREE natural duo eyeshadow from MODELco for using the code Love when GlossyBox had a promotion going on! Although the promotion is no longer active, they almost always have something going on, like 10% off a subscription, a free lip gloss, etc.
So.. why havn’t you signed up yet? Prices start at $21 (inc. shipping) per month and get cheaper based on the more months you sign up for!
There are already promos and spoilers for next month like a Figs & Rouge Lip Balm tube (Value $9)
