Glossybox July 2012 Review

Just arrived this morning.

Now I know what I have said previously but I've given them another shot. I signed up again just after the July boxes had been dispatched so I assumed my first one would be the August one. I was rather surprised when this turned up.

I love the dusky pink colour of the box. Quite sophisticated actually in comparison to the bright pink of some others.

The first thing I noticed was the lack of the usual postcard type thing explaining what everything is etc.  Not very impressed with that. So onto the items inside the box.

Paul Mitchell awaphui wild ginger texturising sea spray.  Smells weird and whilst I'm permanently trying to get my frizzy mess of a hair do into something sleek I will probably use it to stop the frizz a little bit.

Collin Resultime Regenerating Collagen Gel. The back says to leave it on for 15 minutes before applying usual cream and then remove.  Smells a bit like perm lotion if I'm honest.

Kryoloan Satin Powder sparkling eye dust. Lovely colour with lots of possibilities.  I'm thinking wet for a bit more colour or even use it on the cheeks.

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Frosting Irish Cream Pavlova.  Love this. It tastes divine, not that you're really supposed to eat it of course.  You can use it on the cheeks too.

Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Skin samples -  usual problem of not enough in them to know whether you want to buy the full sized ones. I'm guessing they are very expensive but without the product list I can't say.

Monu Extra Rich Night Cream. Smells strange but sinks in really well.

So overall I love the lip frosting and eye dust. However I feel that, as there was no contents list, it was a box that was thrown together from what they had left.  When I resubbed I filled out the profile thingy to say only nail products, make up and fragrance so fingers crossed next time I won't get any face creams etc.  If I do then I'm afraid Glossy Box won't be getting a second chance. Simple as that.
