The sun is shining, tights are off and the Pimm's is flowing... Summer is finally here! Good thing the Glossybox team has all your beauty essentials covered with this month's box.
Here is what I found in mine :
Vichy Dermablend Ultra-Corrective Foundation Cream Stick
This starter kit comes with six shades, ranging from (11) Procelain to (16) Bronze and even though it wouldn't suit everyone, I find it to be a pretty good selection for Caucasian skintones. Needless to say, the coverage is fantastic and makes for a great concealer if like me, you like a lighter finish. If you are interested in seeing how this product works, Lisa Eldridge posted a video using the Vichy Dermablend range, which you can watch here.
BM Summer Warmth Bronzer
It wouldn't be a summer box without a bronzer and believe me, this is a good one! The loose powder blends effortlessly and gives your skin a healthy, radiant glow. If the colour "Warmth" is too dark for your skin, I'd highly recommend you try one of the three other shades next time you hit a BM counter.
Yves Rocher France Mini Mascara Ultra-Volume Sexy Pulp
Yves Rocher is one of those brands every French teenager has tried, me included. I never really liked any of their products and unfortunately, this mascara is no exception. Now, if the idea of an "innovative maxi-brush with generous curves for a lash plumping result" sounded promising to start off with, I found it didn't do much to hold the curl or give me volume. At £16.90, I have to give it a miss.
Glossybox Serie Exclusive Pro Beauty Brush
After making its debut in the U.S. last month, this natural goat hair brush finally made its way into our boxes. Unfortunately, it is a little bit too coarse for my liking and still find myself reaching for my other brushes most days.
Dermalogica Clean Start Day/Night 3-Step Kit
I had the chance to get my hands on a very similar set last year and absolutely loved it, so I was more than happy to see this in my Glossybox. The kit contains a Wash Off foaming cleanser, an All Over Clear purifying toner, as well as a Welcome Matte SPF15 moisturiser. Despite the cleanser and toner being too harsh for my skin, I absolutely love the sunscreen. It does exactly what it says on the tube and leaves your skin protected and matte, making it a beach staple for me.
What did you think of this month's box? I was genuinely impressed with what I got in mine!
Glossybox is available for only £10 a month, and will deliver five product miniatures for you to test at home, and thus every month.
