The theme of this months box is "Summer Looks", a fitting theme for the weather but I was expecting some make-up samples in summery shades but received all body/hair products, really disappointing and not really related to summer. Also, black lining in a summer themed box? Really? The total value of my box this month was about £31.00.
The first product which caught my eye was the Nuxe Shimmering Dry Oil (£34.00 for 100ml, 10ml included). This can be used anywhere as a hydrating oil or to add a little shimmer. I can't really see myself using this as I'm not really a fan of glitter on my body or face other than eye shadow, but it does smell and feel really nice and makes your skin feel really soft and only a little shimmery so I might find a use for it. I wouldn't pay so much for the full size thing though!
Next up the big disappointment, Paul Mitchell Curl Duo- Leave-In Treatment and Beachy Texture Cream-Gel (Leave-in treatment full size 200ml, £14.95, 15ml included and Texture cream-gel full size 150ml, £11.95, 15ml included). I don't understand why I would have been sent this when I stated on the beauty profile that I have fine, straight hair. My hair won't curl without curlers so these are of no use to me. They might be lovely for someone that has wavy hair but just aren't suitable for my hair. Well done Glossybox.
I am really disappointed with this months box and if it hadn't been my free box from redeeming my Glossydots, I think I would be tempted to cancel my subscription. I have loved every other box so far which makes me think this may be a one off but I'm really surprised how poor this box is. I don't mind a few body products but really just want the make-up so this really let the box down for me. Hopefully next months box will make up for this one or I might consider making that my last! I think its a shame the majority of the box value came from the moisturiser and the other samples were relatively cheap boring bits.
Did you get a Glossybox this month? Was yours as rubbish as mine, or would you have liked this one?
