Glossybox – June 2018: French Riviera

Glossybox – June 2018: French Riviera

This month, Glossybox are taking their subscribers to the beautiful French Riviera, with a special edit of chic French beauty essentials that you’ll be wanting to pack into your suitcase ASAP. I’m a huge fan of French beauty brands so I’m very excited about this theme and with the sun shining, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about those Summer holidays!

There are five products inside June’s Glossybox, so let’s jump right in and check out these beauties:-

Laritzy Cosmetics Shade Stix in Aloha (full size, RRP £18)

Laritzy are a popular French-Canadian brand whose products have been making the rounds in many beauty boxes lately, but I don’t mind because I LOVE this Shade Stix! Packaged in a handy twist-up tube, this cream bronzer/contour stick is super easy to use as you literally just swipe it on, blend it out and you’re good to go. The colour is a perfect match for me and I think it would suit many skin tones as paler ladies can use it as contour product. I also love the fact that it’s cruelty-free and parabens free too – winner, winner!

MONU Skin Eye Cool Gel (full size, RRP £15)

Next up, there’s a full-size product from MONU Skin and this is their Eye Cool Gel which is obviously ideal for the hot Summer months ahead. It gets to work quickly and does a fantastic job of soothing and refreshing tired eyes, whilst making them look brighter and more rejuvenated instantly. Suitable for all skin types, this is a really useful addition to anyone’s Summer skincare routine.

Nip + Fab Glycolic Scrub Fix (travel size, 50ml – full size is 75ml for £9.95)

I’m a huge fan of Nip + Fab’s Glycolic Acid Pads, so I’m really interested to try out this scrub which contains 3% Glycolic Acid and a blend of Salicylic Acids. It has a lovely fresh and uplifting grapefruit scent and tiny grains to effectively shift dull dead skin cells, leaving your complexion brighter in a matter of minutes.

Mystic Black Deep Hair Mask (travel size, 100g, full size is £11.95 for 1kg)

As my hair is naturally very dry, I always appreciate receiving hair masks and treatments like this in my beauty boxes and I haven’t come across this brand before. Free from a range of nasties such as parabens, sulphates and silicones, this deep conditioning hair mask is enriched with Baobab Oil and helps to keep your hair hydrated, frizz and tangle-free, whilst improving the appearance of split ends. I used it last night and it’s made my hair incredibly soft and swish-worthy so this gets a thumbs up from me!

Gatineau Gentle Eye Makeup Remover (travel size, 50ml, full size is £21 for 200ml)

The last product in this month’s Glossybox is a luxury French beauty classic. Founded in Paris over 80 years ago by Madame Jeanne Gatineau, this is a well-loved skincare brand the world over. This Gentle Eye Makeup Remover is oil-free and formulated with extracts of Cucumber, Green Tea and Aloe Vera, so it’s suitable for sensitive skin and contact lens wearers. This travel size bottle is also perfect for holidays and weekends away.
