Glossybox Review – July Edition

Here we go, round 2 with Glossybox. Let’s get ready to dive into this July subscription box.

I stayed on the auto-renew list on their site to give the box another go as last time with Glossybox I felt happy, but somewhat still deflated with the product choice. In the June edition, I have actually fallen in love specifically with a hair mask they included and I will be buying the full-size version of that. Which is a great outcome of having these boxes.

Delivery once again was straightforward, Glossybox states on their site that every box gets dispatched on the same day which is the 5th of every month. I received the box on the 7th of July which makes the delivery time 2 days.

They really blew this box out the water, literally. The sea-theme is utterly beautiful, I feel in the current market mermaid theme things are overdone but this has been presented so nicely. The blue/teal colour scheme makes me feel as though I’ve been transported to my favourite Portuguese beach and the waves are crashing next to me. Glossyboxes packaging is always great, it also is made of a much heavier duty cardboard which feels a little more luxurious. A card is included inside and it explains the products you received and their prices.

Pros – I have used all of the products in this box. The box includes 3 more established brands which are Essence, Hawaiian Tropic and Palmers. The mascara is incredible, I was ready for another mascara as I was running out of my No7 one.  It feels a lot more personalised to me this time around, the toothpaste is another faveourite of mine, I’ve just had a tooth removed so my dental care has totally shifted. The toothpaste has definitely helped me, it helps stop the sensitivity I usually suffer with. The sun protection they included was useful as it’s been disgustingly hot in the UK. I’ve also fallen in love with the Shell Brush, it applies my primer well and also helps me sculpt the cheeks/apply the highlight.

Cons – The sizing of products or lack of sizing should I say leave me to assume they put more effort and money into the packaging. The total value was only £38 which is okay I guess, the Hawaiian Tropic sachet is a free sample you can get in a magazine. The most expensive product was the hair spray.

Would I repurchase? –  I was pleasantly surprised with this box I do believe I will stay on the auto-renew list, I’m excited to see what’s in store for next months box. Find Glossybox here
