I knew I was due a disappointing Glossybox sometime soon after the last few have been amazing and here it is! The theme was welcoming the start of Summer and unfortunately I don't think that this box captures Summer at all, boo!! There's only one product that I'm truly excited to use and two out of five I'm going to be passing on but enough of the moaning and without further ado this is what I received:
Monu Professional Skincare Hydrating Moisturiser SPF 15
This is packed full of sun damage preventing ingredients which we all know are especially vital at this time of year to incorporate into your skincare routine. I've received Monu in beauty boxes a couple of times now and have loved every product from them so far!
NUXE Huile Prodigieuse OR
Now this is what I cannot wait to try out! I've never used a NUXE product before but have seen review after glowing review. This is a multi purpose dry oil and can be used on your face, body and hair and the golden particles give a lovely subtle bronze shimmer.
Helen E Cosmetics Shimmer Eye Powder in Shade 14
The shade I received is a dark almost black grey, not a colour I would associate with summer at all. There was a variation of shades so I think I just got the short straw, maybe the other colours were a bit lighter. I'll be passing this on because it's not my colour at all, I'm much more of a neutral girl.
MeMeMe Cosmetics Long Lasting Nail Gloss in Shade Wild
I love receiving nail varnishes in beauty boxes because sometimes you get a colour you would never think of buying yourself and end up loving it but not this shade. Again, it's a dark colour that I wouldn't wear when the sun is shining. I'm not adverse to a vampy purple in the colder months but this is a strange one, it just reminds me of something you would have got as a free gift in Girl Talk in the early nineties!
Figs & Rouge Cherry Blossom Multi-Tasking Lip Balm
These little tubes always come in handy and as this one can also be used on cuticles, elbows, knees and unruly eyebrows it will definitely be useful. I know beautiful soft lips are great to have all year round but I find myself reaching for my lip balms a lot more in the winter. I've searched the packaging everywhere and I can't seem to spot any SPF which I think would probably make it more summer relevant because I know that when it's super hot it makes lips suffer.
So this wasn't the bright, bronzed, SPF filled box that I first thought that this months would be and even the little chocolate didn't sweeten deal. Roll on the July box!
