I didn't blog about last month's Glossybox as I honestly wasn't very impressed. The brush in particular seemed like a silly move as they really need to be done well or not at all in my humble opinion. However, this month's box is festival themed and, whilst I've done my unwashed time at festivals (Reading 2007 *shudder*), it contains lots of useful goodies. I was very pleased indeed to see the NUXE Huile Prodigieuse as I've been considering a purchase for a while, but wanted to try it first. It's a dry oil for face, hair and body, and it sinks in very rapidly to leave a soft sheen that would look beautiful on top of tanned skin. I think I might be a convert! Next is a Monu Eye Cool Gel intended to reduce puffiness and dark circles. I can't vouch for its claims but it feels delightfully cool and refreshing right now as, at the time of writing, it's about a squillion degrees. Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Moisture Mist is another product that will come in very handy. My hair is naturally quite dry and even more so in summer but I prefer using oils on damp hair. It has a refreshing, summery scent and the bottle says it can also be used on skin. Jelly Pong Pong are a brand I haven't used since I was at school. Their Lip Frosting in Irish Cream Pavlova is a hot pink, sickly-sweet smelling cream gloss that can be used on lips or cheeks. If you can get past the scent, it's a really pretty colour and I quite like the texture and tiny amount of shimmer. At the other end of the girly spectrum is a BEX London Londoner Urban Fragrance in SE1. I normally find fragrance samples pretty frustrating, particularly as this one has a fairly pretentious concept 'inspired by the unique character and idiosyncrasies of London', but I actually really like the scent. It's a slightly less peppery version of Marc Jacobs BANG, so it may prove a bit too masculine for some tastes. Unfortunately I don't like the look of the Elizabeth Arden skincare samples, partly due to the slightly scary ingredients list and partly as I find sachet samples of things that don't get used up all at once (i.e. skincare!) are difficult to store. However they are a bonus product!
GlossyBox provided me with this box for consideration. All options are my own.
