July's Summery Glossy Box

Hello lovelies, enjoying your weekend? Sadly it's nearly over but I hope everyone has a lovely relaxing Sunday before the rush rush Monday creeps around the corner.

Here is what I got inside my July's Glossy Box.


The boxes just keep getting better by the month in my eyes. Last year I would pray it wouldn't be another bad box but so glad I gave them the benefit of the doubt and went back to them as now every month I can't wait to get my box! I run to the door all excited. I love a package (that sounds so wrong). 

The packaging of this months glossy box was beautiful! A gorgeous blue with star fish and coral reef on the top and side. An under the sea sort of theme to the box. Summer, Sea and the beach how lovely. The products all fit in with the theme too pretty much.



Look how gorgeous the attention to detail is, for some stupid reason this picture wont turn around? I have tried everything but you get the jist of it. I love the box so much though just wondering what i could store in here?

Here's a close up of the products I received.


Anatomicals - Spray misty for me facial spritz 

A hydrating facial mist, what a wonderful product to get in this heat! This smells divine, it smells like the beach and fresh you can strongly smell the lavender with the undertones of peppermint. All good ingredients for your skin, any skin type. Can be used to spray all over your face after you have cleansed or even over your make up to set it into place or just to refresh. I have been loving this in the hot weather also not a bad price tag for a 100ml bottle at £6. I have used quite a bit of the product though and still almost a full bottle left so I'm thinking this will last me through the summer defiantly! Also love the lilac packaging.


Coola Organic Suncare Collection - Mineral Face SPF 20 Unscented

Another must have in this heat! A lovely moisturizer but also protectant from the sun, it's not sticky which is a plus I always find sun creams sticky once you've applied them but this isn't at all. Its lovely, glides over your face like a dream and isn't scented so no nasty scents aroming. I actually love the smell of sun cream but not a big deal it doesn't smell of it, unscented is probably best on your face. You have SPF protection 30 minutes after your application then if you've been swimming or sweating a lot they recommend you re apply every 2 hours. As much as it being a lovely product I don't think a 7ml bottle is enough to judge it's full potential so I don't think I will be repurchasing this bad boy at a hefty £29.99 for a 50 ml bottle. I know you need these things in the hot weather but I try my best not to stay out too much in the heat anyway being so pale and burning so I defiantly wouldn't repurchase sorry Coola!


Alterna Haircare - Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist

I love the cute little bottle we received just the right size to pop in your handbag on the go or a travel size for when your away, this would be a lovely product to take to a beach vacation or any where abroad as it seems a no fuss product you just need to spray on damp hair or dry from your roots to the ends and shape with your fingers for a tousled 'boho' style. I love a natural messy hair day and this looks like my sort of product. I'm still yet to try it out as I have been having a hair make over recently, I've gone from dark brown to blonde! A big change but I'm slowly warming to it but I shall be looking forward to using this product. Be good also I think if you've just gone for a swim to give a bit of texture to your damp locks. It smells gorgeous and I think this will last me a while as you only need a couple of sprays. This retails at £23.00 for a 125ml bottle. 


Essie - Sleek sticks

I was excited to receive this product from the Essie range as I've always wanted to try them out. I wouldn't say I was a massive fan of croc but I'll defiantly work with it, maybe pop them on my toes to spruce them up a little. They come in array of colours and designs so I shall see how I get on with these before I repurchase a different design. For one set they retail at £9.99 I have seen these floating around in Boots but you could probably find them in most drug stores. If not the Essie website. I shall pop a picture of these once I've attempted to stick them on my tootsies with a little tutorial.

Then Lastly,


Sleek Make Up - Pout Paint

I think these look very similar to the Lip tars but I cant tell you the different consitency's or anything as I haven't tried any lip tars yet but they do look a little similar. I was so glad i received these colours after seeing some people get blue! But the good thing about these is that you can mix them together to make your own colour up! How cool is that? I see why they are called pout 'paint'. I don't think I would want to mix the colours as I am pretty happy with the gorgeous pink/nude colours I have! But i shall try them out. The fuchsia like pink pout paint is called '154 Mauve Over'  and the nude colour is called '161 Minx' it is a nude with a hint of coral I think. They are thick and creamy in texture but glide smoothly over your lips and dry to a satin finish. They are supposedly meant to last for hours I shall put them to the test and keep you informed. It has a weird scent to it which I can't really put my finger on but its not too bad of a scent. These retail at £4.99 I am really curious to trying out the blue mixing it with another colour and the bright silver! I'd love to read a review of someone who did get those shades.

Over all I am very impressed with my box and there isn't one thing in there which I won't use! So a very god box indeed. Thank you very much Glossy Box. If you don't usually subscribe monthly with glossy box I would really recommend this box to everyone just for all the amazing products you get for the summer all your essentials. It's only £10 a month but if you just want this box subscribe to this months then cancel straight away but I have loved every box so far this year so I am a dedicated glossy box subscriber :)

Have you received this box yet or will be getting one? What products did you love out your box?
