This month’s Glossybox UK beauty box is holiday and beach-themed, so think everything sea, sand and surf. The box is a beautiful sea blue-green, and there’s 6 products inside that will be perfect for any upcoming vacations in the sun.
The first product in July’s Glossybox (£10 plus p&p per month from Glossybox) is such a cute metallic green shell-shaped brush from Inuwet (worth £13.20). This thin brush has soft bristles and is perfect for highlighting your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose. Inuwet are a Korean brand and this brush is Vegan and cruelty-free. If you like all your makeup items to look Instagram-able, you will love this little item.
You can’t have a beach-themed box without a product to create beachy waves in your hair. In this month’s box you get a full-size Senhor Do Bonfim Sea Water Hair Spray (worth £16). You can spray onto damp hair then twist strands to create waves, or you can add texture to dry hair with it too. It has an amazing luxury hair salon scent, and it works really well on my straight hair. My only complaint is that the bottle is so small – it looks more like a travel-size than a full-size product. I definitely wouldn’t pay £16 for this amount of spray.
Also in the box is a travel-size of a toothpaste that I’ve used and loved before. The Regenerate Enamel Science Advanced Toothpaste (full-size worth £10) has a lovely minty taste and it cleans teeth very well. It’s also the first toothpaste to regenerate enamel and reverse the early erosion process. The formula contains a unique blend of enamel minerals that wrap around your teeth. I use this twice a day, and i’m hoping that over a bit of time, it works wonders.
If you like soft hands, you’ll love the full-size Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Hand Therapy hand cream (worth £8) as it’s a great hand moisturiser and it has a lovely, fresh ocean scent. It contains antioxident-rich seaweed and red algae extracts, and it also has a good dose of Hyaluronic Acid to keep your skin hydrated. It’s quite a thick hand cream, so you do have to spend a little bit of time working it in to the skin.
Another full-size product in this month’s box is a makeup item. I would have thought that a waterproof makeup item would have been more fitting to the theme, but instead they have included the best-selling THE ONE 5-in-1 Wonder Lash Mascara from Oriflame (worth £9). I actually really like this mascara as it curls my naturally long, straight lashes. It also seperates them well too. Apparently one of these mascaras is sold every 4 seconds, so others must agree with my verdict!
Finally, you get a handy little sachet of the amazingly-scented Hawaiian Tropic Duo Defence Sun Lotion SPF 30 (full-size worth £14.99). This is great to keep in your handbag for an unexpected day in the sun. Remember to apply sun lotion 20 minutes before sun exposure. This one offers anti-pollution protection too.
