Glossybox unboxing - July 2015:

Hey Everyone, Just Amber back with another beauty box unboxing post. Today I will be showing you what I got inside my July Glossybox. Glossybox is a monthly beauty box subscription service which costs £10.00 plus £2.95 p+p every month. This months box is French themed and designed by a young designer called Jamie Lee Reardin. The box is worth around £52.00 this month but does only contain one full sized product, I'm slightly disappointed :(.           

Check out the YouTube video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XlWaCbtl0s

Product 1- Noxidoxi enhancing serum base:

This product comes in a 25ml tube. It is a moisturising serum designed to moisturise and hydrate the skins surface and deeper layers. It contains a cocktail of antioxidants and anti-imflammatories which aid in skin protection. You apply the product before you moisturise. A full size product retails at £33.46.


Product 2 - Lollipops lip balm:

This product is 10ml and a full size item. It is a rich and creamy balm which helps to soften and soothe. This product also contains antioxidants and vitamin E which helps to protect the lips from UV damage. The product retails for £4.15. I am already not keen on this product as the packaging looks like something you would buy a child and it smells sickly sweet. 

Product 3 - Teoxane cosmeceuticals perfect skin refiner:

I am excited to try this product as just looking at the outer packaging it screams expensive and quality. This item comes in a 15ml tube and full size is worth a whopping £70. The tube has a pump end. The product contains hyaluronic acid which plumps and hydrates skin. It helps to resurface the skin and reduce irritation.  The product states to apply every other night and that it also states that you should wear a high SPF factor the day after application to protect the skin due to it being a potent treatment. 

Product 4 - Vichy ideal soleil tinted velvet BB cream:

I have never used a BB cream before so I am looking forward to trying this one. You get x2 boxed samples which come in a tube and are 3ml each. This BB cream from Vichy contains SPF 50 to shield skin and boost hydration. The full size product retails at £15.50.

Product 5 - Glossybox travel pouch:

This is probably my favourite part of this months box as it contains exclusive artwork by Jamie Lee Reardin. The artwork is beautiful, it is a perfect zip lock bag to keep all your beauty essentials safe or could be made useful as an everyday make up bag. I think I would use it as a travel pouch for when I go on holiday. 

Thats all for now, Amber :) xox
