What's in the June Glossybox?

After seeing the lovely goodies everyone got in the May Glossybox I ended up signing up, I was rather excited as well, especially after watching videos and reading blog posts about the last one. Although I was slightly weary that the first box was purposely better to entice people in and then the second one not being as good.
Mine arrived on Thursday morning and of course I squealed with delight and opened it's what I got:
                                                                Beautifully packaged as expected.
The card telling you what's in the box and a short description of each product, this box was based on getting summer ready.

OPI Designer Series Mini Nail Lacquer (3.75ml) seriously tiny (and cute)! But I do love the colour it has rainbow glitters.
                                                  Next is Perles De Lalique eau de parfum (4.5ml)
When I put it on I thought it was way too strong and not my kinda thing but now it's settled it's not as bad but still not a smell I'd choose to go out and buy. For some reason it's a scent I'd expect someone older to wear.

Batiste Dry shampoo - 50ml
I thought this was a random product to find and didn't really expect it to be in glossybox especially as they state 'luxury' products but its something I use so its definitely useful to have a travel size bottle.
 Bioeffect EGF serum- This was a tiny bottle and apparently worth £30. It stimulates growth of new skin cells which is supposed to give a good complexion and hydrated younger looking skin. This is something I would have been interested in trying out, don't think I'd spend that much on it though! I left it in the little pouch as it was a bit of a mess...
Such a shame and my biggest disappointment is that the Bioeffect Serum was broken and leaked everywhere, to say the box is so wonderfully packaged I'm not quiet sure how this happened but it sucks none the less. I did let them know about this and I am awaiting a reply.
Margaret Dabbs 100ml  Exfoliating foot mousse worth around £15.35. This product claims to transform your feet by moisturising, replenishing and revitalising. It contains Australian Emu oil along with tea tree leaf and pumice which helps to remove layers of dead skin whilst the emu oil rehydrates.
 So this is the full sized product they included, I'm not super thrilled by it but I guess my feet could use some TLC. Although I feel it's not something I will use often, it's will still be used and I look forward to seeing how well it works.

I have noticed that there seems to be a variation (not sure if I like this!) of what full sized product people have received, some have received a Body Buff by Mama Mio which I'm rather jealous about >_< as it's something I'd use all the time and I have always wanted to try a Mama Mio products. Others have got a shower gel or lipgloss.
Overall I am somewhat disappointed, not only because of the broken serum bottle but I guess I didn't like the products as much as May's glossybox. I know a lot of people expected it to not be as good as May's as that was the first box and they had products such as a full sized Nars Illuminator to get people into subscribing which I guess worked. Also for £10 I'm not expecting tons of amazing stuff but still better products than this, maybe some make up would have been nice.
Currently I'm not sure if I am going to continue my subscription, I may give it another chance before I cancel.
What do you think of this months Glossybox? & If anyone else got one, I'd love to hear about what you got in yours!


  1. I really like the OPI nail polish, although that does suck about the serum. I would deff give it one more try if I were you!

  2. Feel exactly the same! Batiste just doesn't fit in with the whole "glossybox concept", seems a bit of a last minute throw in. Also, jealous you got the full size foot mousse and anybody who got the body scrub - I got 100ml of shower gel which isn't even a full sized product - not totally impressed! Nice post. X

  3. @Devea- I'm looking forward to putting it on! It's a nice colour...I think I will you know.

    @Hannah- Thank you! Agreed, even just looking at it with the rest of the things it doesn't fit in. Awh, I have been told by them that there was 5 variations so I wonder what the other two things are like..

  4. I wish I'd got that footcare - I need it much more than the body scrub I got!

  5. This months Glossybox does seem a bit blah. I mean c'mon, Batiste? Who doesn't own a can of Batiste? xo


Make sure you check back soon! I reply to my sweet comments and Thank you for visiting! ^_^
