In the July 2013 edition, we have a fairly full-looking box of contents. It’s very bad but this is how I judge how good the boxes are. Nothing more disappointing than opening a beauty box only to see a vial of perfume, two sachets of shampoo, an eyeliner pencil and a pot of bronzing powder. I’m not asking for 5 full size products but maybe one or two miniature versions, and this is what we have this month. Let’s admit it, we all prefer to get bigger samples than small little pots from luxe brands. I’m also not too bothered about the total value of all the samples, I just like the boxes to at least look a bit full.
In the Seaside Splash box, we got a full size bottle of Anatomicals cooling spray which costs an affordable £6.00, but I’m really pleased about it. It doesn’t set my make up like it claims to do but it is refreshing for hot days. I also got Alterna Haircare Tousled Texture Mist, Coola Organic SPF Face Tint, Pukka Ayurveda Radiance Serum and a bottle of Ciate nail polish, a brand that I’ve been obsessed with recently. All these products that I received in the July Glossybox fit the beach theme really well, and as you can see from my latest outfit post, I’ve been spending a staycation at the seaside so all these products have arrived at the perfect time!
