Glossy Box June 2012 The Sexy Summer Box

As I mentioned yesterday I lost my memory card with most of my photos on and therefore today's post will be lacking a few images. Usually I try to fill my posts with pretty, informative and detailed pictures but as I usual get rid of all my packaging after taking the photos so I only have photos of the actual products today.

First I want to talk a little about Glossy Box and Beauty boxes in general as I have seen a few negative comments. As far as I know Glossy Box is the biggest beauty box company in the UK meaning that catering products to individual subscriber would be very difficult as well as time consuming, if this is something you look for I would consider subscribing to another box that can provide this for you. I personally so really like receiving my Glossy Box and look forward to it every month. Do I always get what I want? No. Do I sometimes get what other people would like? Yes and I often also get some amazing products which I proudly add to my collection.

I also think people also often forget that beauty boxes usually only say that you will be sent 5 beauty samples and expect at least some full size products as they were lucky enough to get it once. I personally find that there is always one stand out product per box and then I don't give the other products enough of a go but I think we should all actually give each product a good go, even the smaller samples before knocking the box.
With that over here is what I got in my June Glossy Box...
This time around my stand out product was the HD brows tweezers- in the past I had seen other people had received HD Brow products which I hadn't and been a little disheartened but it just goes to show if you wait a little you will get a product you really like. I haven't put the tweezers down since I got them! I also got the Paul Mitchell Orginal Conditioner which is one of those products I am going to have to push myself to use as it might be amazing for all I know. The other three products which is seems everyone received was the Glossy Box blush brush which although is a fab idea isn't a great brush, the DermaBlend Starter Kit from Vichy which I really like, I have the full size product and use it quite a lot. The final item is the BM beauty summer bronzer which I have heard great things about but once again haven't tried, will give it a go tomorrow.

Overall I am happy with this months Summer edition box and made extra happy by the tweezers admittedly.

What was in your box?

  2. You received some great stuff. Unfortunately i unsubscribed from them a couple months back. Personally i would have liked to receive the HD precision tweezers and try out the the Vichy Dermablend because i have heard so much great things about it. I hope to read some reviews of these products soon. Thanks for sharing~x

  5. The Dermablend kit looks good. I've reviewed the men's glossybox over on my blog as my fella wasn't a happy chappy with what he got x

  6. I was extremely pleased with this months box, however, i wish Glossybox were more consistant with the items throughout all of the boxes that they send out. One customer for example, recieved three small perfume samples, the brush and the vichy dermablend, which is quite honestly outrageous given that they have payed £12.95 for three small samples that they could have recieved in a department store for free. I have a love/hate relationship with Glossybox and am in fact considering switching to Joliebox

    Lots of Love, Ana

  7. You got the exact same box as me! I was pretty happy with it except the conditioner because I have dreadlocks!

  8. I completely agree with you about being realistic with the box - it's always a risk that you won't like the products and I take full responsibility for that risk. The reason I cancelled my box this month is because they consistently seem to have huge differences in the value of boxes - for example, the tweezers are worth £20, and other boxes have a total value of around £20... which is fine, but it seems to happen most months. Also, Glossybox don't seem to listen all that much to customer feedback - the amount of times I've heard people saying they don't want any more skin care or body wash, and what popped up in my box but skincare and body wash! Finally I was a little bit gutted that the brush is made from goat hair, which I suppose swayed my decision. Anyway, I do think Glossybox is a fab product and a fab idea but I just can't afford £12.95 a month, especially when I (not a skincare or bodywash person) keep getting similar products. But that's my own responsibility so I can't complain. I like your box! Nice review, I Hope you find your memory card! :( xx
