It’s time for the June Glossybox, and the theme for this month’s box is The Festival Edit and the box promises to contain three full sized products, to give you all of the quick fix essentials needed for any festivals you might be going to this year. Glossybox costs £13.25 a month and is a rolling contract, but you can cancel your subscription at any time should you wish to…
First up is a packet of 10 Halo Fragrance Free Facial Wipes worth £1.20. These wipes are said to be suitable for sensitive skin and are dermatologically approved. Now we all know how bad face wipes are for removing makeup, if they’re used alone to cleanse your skin and I myself never use them on my face.
can understand why they included them within the box for the festival theme, but for the purpose of my review, I did try one and it wasn’t pleasant.. it stung my skin, and didn’t remove my makeup and the wipe is so small compared to normal face wipes too.
I would genuinely recommend not buying these and stick to a few baby wipes in a food bag to keep them moist if you are going to a festival as they’re so much kinder on the skin than these; these Halo Wipes are awful.
The next item inside my June Glossybox is a 50ml bottle of the MONU Rosewood Reviving Mist worth £5.97, and contains lemon, rosewood, sandalwood, petitgrain and geranium and is suitable for all skin types.
really like using mists like this during the summer months, especially as you mist them over your makeup without ruining it, but it helps to cool you down. I’m not crazy on the scent as it smells like herby lemon chicken..
My favourite item inside the June Glossybox is the Essence The Gel Nail Polish in the shade Electriiiiic worth £1.60. I love the Essence Nail Polishes so I’m pleased to have another shade to try and this is a dark blue shade, which might be better suited for Autumn and Winter rather than Summer.
Next up is a 150ml bottle of the Kueshi Anticellulite Booster worth £13.89 which is a full size product. This lotion is supposedly designed to ‘reduce cellulite’ which is impossible as no lotion or potion can reduce cellulite – they can only improve the texture of the skin’s surface.
To reduce cellulite, it takes exercise as you have to strengthen and hydrate the body’s cells and connective tissues so this lotion is not going to reduce existing cellulite. Yes using this lotion twice a day, will improve the appearance and smoothness of the skin’s surface but the same results would be seen with a £1 body lotion.
The last item in the box is a sheet of Glossybox Metallic Tattoo‘s (which Glossybox claim are worth £6.50) which are doing the rounds in every beauty box right now. If you read my review of the June Birchbox, you’ll know where I stand with these tattoo’s but I think it’s a bit cheeky that Glossybox have included these as a ‘full size’ product – who is going to want to wear a Glossybox logo tattoo?
Sadly I think this is a really poor box for Glossybox, in terms of products, value for money and also the theme – I don’t think the items really fit the theme at all.
The box contents are worth £22.66, and I’m not including the tattoo’s value within that price as they’re a freebie and not a product. I think this had the potential to be an amazing box, but sadly it’s a real disappointment…
