As July and August are times where everyone is jetting off onto their holidays, all of the beauty subscription boxes are bringing out their Summery versions to match the holiday mood, so it was interesting to see what Glossybox was going to do this month.
July’s Glossybox is themed Under The Sea and comes presented in a beautiful aquatic/ocean box (it’s actually one of my favourite designs that they’ve done in a long time because it looks so dreamy and peaceful, plus I love the colours!), and the contents are an edit of beach babe essentials.
Let’s take a closer look at these beauty treats, shall we?
Senhor Do Bonfim Sea Water Hair Spray (full size, RRP £16)
The first product that I pulled out is a Sea Water Hair Spray from the French brand, Senhor Do Bonfim. Designed to help you achieve those coveted beachy mermaid waves, it’s a clever heat-free curl enhancer which adds a desirable amount of beachy texture in just a few quick spritzes. Very easy to use and a great size for travelling.
Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy (full size, RRP £8)
Don’t neglect the delicate skin on your hands with a handbag sized hand cream from Crabtree & Evelyn. Their La Source Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy is a bestseller and has a lovely rich and thick texture with a fresh, marine scent. It contains antioxidant-rich seaweed and red sea algae extracts, as well as hyaluronic acid to keep your hands softer for longer.
Oriflame The One 5-in-1 Wonder Lash Mascara (full size, RRP £9)
For makeup this month, there’s a full-size mascara from Oriflame. Called The One, this 5-in-1 ‘wonder lash mascara’ promises to lift, curl, volumise, lengthen and separate your lashes with a unique double-sided brush. One of these beauties is sold every four seconds so I can’t wait to try it out!
Inuwet Cheek Shell Brush (full size, RRP £13.20)
How cute is this Cheek Shell Brush?! This is definitely something that Ariel would use! From the Korean brand, Inuwet, this brush can be used to do precision contouring, bronzing and highlighting. It has very soft synthetic bristles which are cruelty-free and vegan-friendly, and the shell shape is super comfortable to hold in your hand.
Regenerate Enamel Science Advanced Toothpaste (deluxe mini worth £2.50)
Described as the first toothpaste of its kind to regenerate enamel and reverse the early erosion process, this deluxe mini from Enamel Science is the perfect way to try this innovative new formula and it’s great for popping into your suitcase or flight bag this Summer.
Hawaiian Tropic Duo Defence Sun Lotion SPF 30 (sample)
As an extra bonus this month, Glossybox have included a sample sachet of Hawaiian Tropic Duo Defence Sun Lotion SPF 30 which is a new formula the popular suncare brand. Not only does it protect against the harmful rays of the sun, but it also doubles up as an anti-pollution layer for your skin thanks to the natural properties of Green Tea, Guava, Papaya and Passion Fruit extracts.
