GlossyBox- July

Hey dolls,

I have been such a rubbish blogger recently so sorry about that! I went on holiday for 10 days then went back to work and god I've been sooooo busy. Anyway, i'm BACK and back with a bang.

Yesterday, I received my long awaited Glossybox! For those of you that don't know about this beauty, I have added the links at the end of the post and I will explain all!
Its basically a monthly subscription and costs £10 per month (from Sept they will adding a delivery charge) Each month a box is delivered to the address of your choice and inside holds a number of beauty products. The contents are kept a secret until they've all been delivered but I have not been disappointed with the past products. Glossybox started this May so its fairly new but its already kicked up a storm on the blogging scene. In Mays box the receivers were treated to a full size Nars facial illuminator as well as a full size lipstick and other goodies. Junes box included an Opi nail polish and a tester of Bio effect facial serum and this months box I think its the Best!
You can cancel at anytime so if you only want one box, one box is all you will receive although I doubt you will want to cancel.

Anyway, shall we take a peek into July's box? Okay... here goes :D..

The Packaging

The Products 

The list

Products in detail
Left to Right
♥  Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body oil, 100ml.
♥ Ciante nail polish in Skinny Jeans, Full size
♥ Orla Kiely perfume, trial size
♥ Ultra Sun factor 30 face cream, trial size
♥ Illamasqua Powdered Metal in Ether, Full size

I was extremely excited to receive a full size Illamasqua product. I currently don't own anything from this brand but I see several bloggers raving about them. This product is a multi purpose radiance highlighter, Its very fine powder that can be applied to your cheekbones, used as a metallic eyeshadow, applied to your body for a sheen or just anywhere you feel you need a bit of radiance. I used this yesterday for a big night out by mixing a few pinchfuls to my foundation and the results were amazing. Everyone was commenting on how much my skin glowed :D It's extremely glittery looking but I can assure you it doesn't come out like that. This product retails at £15.75 so for only £10 for 5 products it's amaze!

My next favourite product is the Weleda Pomegranite body oil. Its all organic and smells of citrus, which is weird as its meant to be pomegramite. ha-ha. My skins been a bit dry after 10 days baking in the sun then the cold wet British weather, so after the bath I slathered this on, and i am now so soft I could be made of silk! Again, this is a full size product and retails at £19.95.

The rest is just added extras.

I only paid £10 however 2 products alone cost just over £35!

My excuse? I work really hard and I deserve a treat every month. I cannot wait for August's box now.
