Glossybox July 2013 - Seaside Splash Edition

I've been super busy with deadlines recently and haven't been posting much but I couldn't not post about this month's Glossybox. Last month's one didn't get a mention but for those of you waiting on the postman this one's a winner!

The seaside themed box is really cute and makes a difference to the regular pink ones. 

First up, Anatomicals 'Spray Misty For Me' Facial Spritz. I took a similar product to this away with me on holiday and it came in really useful. It was nice and refreshing so I'd definitely recommend packing something like this if you haven't been on holiday yet. Well with the current heat wave that we've got in the UK at the moment, it will come in handy anyway! You can use it to set makeup as well. It's lavender and peppermint scented and retails for £6 for 100ml. This is a full size version too.

Next up, a Ciate Nail Varnish in 'The Glossip', nail varnish colours in Glossybox can be a bit hit and miss sometimes but i'm really please with this one - a nice coral toned red. £9 Full size again!

Then, there is a Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist. It adds texture, volume and shine to dry or damp hair. This is a miniature version at 25ml of the full size product of 125ml for £23, so has a value of about £4.60.

Coola Classic Sunscreen Cucumber Moisturiser, this has SPF 30 which is important in the Summer and is a multi use product to protect and moisturise skin. This is a 7ml sample worth about £3.70 compared to a full size product of 50ml for £25.99.

Lastly, 2 full size products as one, Sleek Pout Paint in shades: Pinkini and Lava. They're worth £4.99 each. Another good colour choice here, i'm glad that I wasn't sent the blue or silver ones! A little is meant to go a long way so i'm looking forward to trying these.

The box has a value of about £33.00 compared to the £10 subscription price but they're all products that i'll use this time. Sometimes when you get a sample of a £200 cream, you know you're not going to be repurchasing it so it's nice to get a variety.

What do you all think of this month's Glossybox?



  1. I was so happy to receive all this! Best box in so long for me, I'm going to get my pout paint on later ;)

  2. This is a fab box I love the contents! Now following your great blog xx

My Roaccutane Journey

This post is more audience specific than usual but I hope it may be of help to anyone going through a similar situation. I want to give you an insight into my Roaccutane journey as I know I often turned to searching Google for answers. Never did I think i’d be posting this on the internet but here goes... Onto the back story, I had oily/ combination skin as a teenager and suffered with the usual teenage spots that cleared up as I approached my 20’s. Later, I was on the combined contraceptive pill and decided to take a break from it when I was around 23. I stopped it for 6 months and was hit with a backlash. Stopping the pill and a change in hormones is the only explanation I can put my breakout down to. My skin broke out significantly. I had courses of Lymecycline prescribed and Zineryt (Zinc & Erythromycin) Topical Lotion. With minimal success from these, I was referred to a dermatologist. BEFORE Before all of this, I could probably count the number of times

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver! In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT. Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted! I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website. Mix Plate And Crystal Effect Statement Necklace £18 Short Crystal Effect Necklace £14 Other items I considered buying: This grey jewelled clutch bag ca

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox.  Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon! Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park'       Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great
