Throwback Thursday: Glossybox June 2017

I had been thinking about doing this a while ago, having a lookback on my previous Glossybox boxes. Now it is November and everything is heading to a more seasonal look and I’ve finally got some time to start. Isn’t that typical?

Anyway I am sure you’re all aware of Glossybox by now but it is a monthly subscription box. It costs £13.25 a month and features full size and deluxe sized beauty products (including skincare, hair, nails, makeup and more). I started to receive mine last summer and I have loved discovering new brands and products.

Obviously some of the packaging has changed over this time and some of them might not be available anymore. But here’s my reviews of the box now, did I re-purchase any of them or are any still in my collection.

Glossybox June 2017

Here is my lookback to the June 2017 Glossybox;

BeautyPro Black Diamond Mask

I remember using this around the time that viral videos of these peel off masks were quite painful to remove… I used this one fine and it really did its job well. I have since had other Beauty Pro masks and they are a great brand to check out if you haven’t already.

111Skin Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel

So this stuff is £110. I remember due to the size of it that I put it into my travel bag and used it over quite a few trips away and then finally made it into my everyday skincare bag. But I really did use this in the end to use up the product as I hadn’t seen any real changes for using it. Then again my eyes are not that bad so maybe I should have kept it for when they really needed it. I know others loved it but it just wasn’t for me.

Manna Kadar Sheer Glo Illuminator

I absolutely love a highlighter and this was good for the face and body. It was ideal timing for this to be in a June box and I used most of it through the summer and then through the latter part of 2017. Haven’t re-purchased as I thought it was quite expensive but I do check out the other products from Manna Kadar regularly.

Sleek Power Plump Lip Crayon

I had a few Sleek items in my makeup collection but I definitely got influenced by Glossybox to buy more. I loved this lip crayon and ended up buying it in a few shades. I’ve also got a few of their eye palettes too, some from other Glossyboxes!

Batiste Stylist Shield My Locks Heat & Shine Spray

I’ve used their dry shampoo spray for years and this was a welcome addition that I didn’t use straight away – I don’t like adding extra heat to my hair in the summer because of frizz! I did use it with my straighteners later on in the cooler months and I loved the extra shine.

Eness Cosmetics Argan Oil Nourishing Hand Cream

You probably all know that I am obsessed with hand creams and seeing one in this box was amazing. I have repurchased this one as it really does keep my hands soft. I do like to do a lot of gardening and it really is not good for my hands at all. This one sits by the sink in my kitchen to give my hands a good boost. It’s also great to use it with gloves for a real conditioning treatment.

There was also a sample of Louise Pentland’s book ‘Wilde Like Me’ which I have just started reading (the full version). Loving it so far! My book pile list is so high so yes it might look like I’m a super lazy reader but it’s not the case!

 

That was all from my June 2017 box. and it was great actually to lookback over it. I’ll be doing more of these over the next few weeks months.

Don’t forget that Glossybox subscribers can get the Glossybox ‘All I Want’ Advent Calendar for £75 (normal price £99).
