June Glossybox!

June Glossybox! Better late than never, right? Glossybox is probably my favourite at the moment.  It does have a lot of drugstore products this month, but I'm okay with that.  We did get quite a bit of full size products, the value is totally there. I do appreciate that some girls just want to try the high end stuff.  I love everything from inexpensive to luxury as long as it gives me the desired results!

Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution. 7ml.  I think this is one of those things that has been repeated everywhere, and ladies are getting tired of it.  Personally I have 3 of these now.  I think between all the boxes I'll never have to buy any anti aging products again, lol!

Neutrogena  Dry Touch Sunscreen with SPF 55.  I know a lot of girls weren't happy with this because they got it free in the Neutrogena gift pack.  I missed out on that, so I don't mind.  I also have 2 of these with spf 75 that were given to my husband from a pharmacy friend. That said, you can never have enough sunscreen laying around!  I like the little bottles for slapping on the kids necks and face while we're out.  Don't forget sunscreen does need to be reapplied!

Covergirl Blastflipstick Blendable Lip Duo in 800 Whisper.  This is a full size and it's beautiful! One side is a colour and the other is supposed to be a shimmer to go over it.  I was one of the lucky few to get a  pretty colour.  A lot of girls got really dark browns.

This side is a deeper red with gold in it.  It's supposed to be shimmery.  I guess it's like the topcoat!
This is the lip colour side, a very pretty pink. Almost a nude colour.

Venus Embrace 5 blade razor.  Most of the girls were excited to get a razor, me not so much.  I've gone through so many and have never been happy.  The only one I've been happy with has been my husbands.  I seriously think the men's razors are much better quality.  However, this one is 5 blades, so we'll see.

Biore products.  The one on the left is a nose strip.  I have a full package of these that I was given to test. They are better than they used to be 15 years ago..but I wonder what REALLY comes off your nose...blackheads or really fine hairs? :P

The bottle is Biore balancing cleanser for combination skin.  Which is perfect I have combo skin.  I can't wait to try this out.  This is a full size product as well.  I love getting those!

Lastly, is the Wella Ocean Spritz - Beach Texture Hairspray.  I tried it prior to washing my hair one day and I wasn't impressed.  I already have dry hair and I'm not sure this did me any favours.  If I let my hair airdry it becomes a giant frizzball.  I'll try this again on wet hair and scrunch and see what happens.  After trying this on my dry hair, like the instructions said my hair became fro huge and one giant tangled mess...I couldn't even brush it out. *sigh*

This is what the box looked like, all stuffed full...I love it! :)

Hope you had a better Monday than I did!!! It kicked my butt today!



  1. Ohh you definitely got one of the better lipstick duos!:) I'm sad the Wella spray didn't impress:(

    1. Yes, that is a better colour for sure! I'm so sad to see how many of the girls got the other. :`( The Wella spray, I just have to try a few things with it to see if I could get it to work for me.. I'll be bummed if I can't.

  2. We got the same box! Love the whisper lipstick shades, they are so pretty! I spray the wella on when my hair is still a little damp, scrunch it a bit, and then bring it back like a messy bun and clip it while I do my makeup. When I take it down and shake it out it has really nice beachy waves

    Hopefully it works out for you!

    1. I saw your tip for I will try it thanks to you! You know, it's funny that on the bottle it says to use it on dry hair...I really should have known better. My hair was seriously crunchy. I don't even really like the smell either... :S

  3. Great Box!
    I'm seriously regretting staying with Luxe Box.. all I can say is that Luxe Box better step up their game!

    1. We will see what happens with Luxebox in August, right? Did you get the June one?

  4. I'd be interested in seeing what the lipstick looks like on a person. Will you post about it?
