June Glossybox

This months Glossybox arrived on Tuesday to my work, and I was rather excited to open it. I will admit that on first opening I was impressed, then when I thought about it I was a little disappointed, but now after sleeping on it I'm not as disappointed as I was.

It didn't help that I received another beauty box the day before and was really impressed with it, so I think it was just a case of being a tough act to follow perhaps. 

This is what I received:

Now I'm very keen to try the Vichy foundation, the Yves Rocher Mascara, and bronzer but I was quite disappointed with the perfume as it gave me headaches and I have read others say that they've received them as a free sample with other purchases before. It may be a case of me needing to change my preferences on my profile on Glossybox to opt out of receiving fragrances - I can't remember off the top of my head if it is a preference on the profile. The fifth product was a Glossybox branded brush, which while practical to apply the bronzer I think I felt a bit cheated by it being Glossybox own brand. We received a Glossybox mirror with the birthday box as an extra which was lovely. I will give the brush a go though and see how I get on!

I had actually done a 3 month one off payment subscription, and now I'm left with deciding whether I want to continue. I think I might go for a monthly subscription and see how next month fares.

Please don't interpret this as me slating Glossybox, I'm aware of various things that have been said this month, but the theory behind it is to make you aware of new brands you previously didn't know and they have achieved that with me.

What were your thoughts on this months box?

  1. It seems a bit of a ripoff to me, about the glossybox brush.
    I suscribed to Glossybox recently but haven't recieved mine yet. :/
    hopefully i won't be disappointed. x


    1. I know what you mean, I keep swaying between "Oh it's not so bad" to "Seriously?"

      Fingers crossed you gets yours through :) Are you subscribed to any others?
