Glossybox July 2015 // Vive La France

Glossybox July 2015

If you didn’t know that I love France, then you’re an idiot.

Actually, that’s not right. You’re probably not an idiot. You’ve probably just not read any of my posts about living in France or going to Disneyland Paris in June.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

When I opened the July Glossybox I was like OHOHSEOKHSROK GSEOKFAHSROHRSHRHS. Look at it. Would you just look at it? The beautiful box of Paris and France makes me want to eat it.

Let’s see it’s as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside…

When I opened the box, all the products were inside a plastic ziplock pouch. The inside packaging was the colours of France : red, white and blue.

Lollipops // Lip Balm Délicieuse

I present to you, the only full sized product of the box. 🙁

At first I thought it was a lipgloss. If I never see another lipgloss again, I’d be quite happy. Awful things.

This is actually a lip balm. It has antioxidants, vitamin E and protects the skin from UV damage. It smells like shea butter.

I’m pretty meh about this.

£4.15 per tube

Teoxane Cosmeceuticals //Perfect Skin Refiner

This has hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate the skin and 10% glycolic acid which helps to resurface the skin. It also has calming ingredients to help reduce irritation.

You use it every other night and may experience a mild tingling sensation at first.

Sounds like it’s something similar to Alpha H’s Liquid Gold?

It’s a cream consistency and has a slight scent which just smells.. ‘clean’. Ha.

£70 for 50ml

Yves Rocher // Comme Une Evidence Eau de Parfum

Comme Une Evidence Eau de Parfum yves rocher glossybox 2015

This is quite a decent sized perfume sample.

It’s a lovely musky floral scent. It first smells sweet then you get a hit of musk. I’m not very good at describing scents so I’ll stop before I make it sound disgusting.

£24.50 full size.

Noxidoxi // Enhancing Serum Base

At 25ml, this isn’t a million miles away from the 30ml full sized.

This serum is great for hydrating, refining pores and has an antioxidant shield.

It’s a light cream that has a yellow tinge and smells slightly like honey/citrus.

£33.46 full size.

Glossybox Travel Pouch

I’m not a fan when Glossybox make something and put it in the box as if it’s one of the 5 products to sample.

It’s not introducing me to a new product or brand so meh.

They say it’s worth £3.99 but it’s not exactly for sale so poo. I DISLIKE IT.

So, the most exacting thing about the Glossybox was actually.. the box itself.

I’m looking forward to trying the skincare products but I would have loved to have seen some makeup in this box.

Next months box promises a full-size tube of  Manna Kadar’s lash primer. Let’s hope that box is better..

Did you like this box?
