Glossybox July Edition
The box was the standard box and nothing has changed in its appearance. The only thing I noticed was the description card. It was super glossy which suits the box just fine. I also loved how Montreal was mentioned on the card.
I am a little excited about the box and the products that I received for July.
Zoya Nail Polish**I have never heard of this brand before. Honestly when I first saw this shade I was a little bummed with the color and was hoping for more of a summer bright shade but once I put it on I kind of liked it. Not sure how often I would wear this and its a light shade. This is a full size product and it sales for $8.
Alessandro InternationalThis is another new to me brand. Its the Pedix Heel Rescue Balm. I really liked the smell of this and this is the perfect summer product. I have dry cracked heels from wearing sandles and this was perfect to use and there is enough of the sample to get a good feel for the product. The full size is 100ml for $19.95 and the sample size was 30ml for $5.99
John Frieda Frizz-Ease Sheer Solution
I actually had received the full size of this product when I went to the Glossybox event here in Montreal and have used it and really like it. I have thick hair and frizz so finding something that will work without drying my hair is important and this was perfect because it was light weight and it did fight frizz. The full size is 60ml for $14.99 and the sample that was included was 10ml for $2.50
(I have to say that I am loving the whole John Frieda line for Frizz Ease. Its perfect for my hair.)
Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer**
I was thrilled to see this in the box because I have been loving the Burt's Bees lip line. I got Cherry. It was a nice shade and I like the texture of it. It was a full size product 2.6g for $5.99
Dove Softening Creme Body Wash**
This is a limited edition item and I was excited to try it. Dove is one of my go to soaps/body washes. I loved that it lathered really well and I liked the smell of it. Its your typical Dove scent. I didn't really notice a difference in my skin in a week but I still enjoyed using this daily. This is also another full size product 200ml for $5.99
BeautySoClean Sanitizer wipes
I received this I believe in my first box and again at the Glossy Box event in Montreal. I haven't used them yet but I am thinking I might just give them a try. The wipes sanitizer your make up to get rid of the gunk that gets on your make up without you really noticing it. The wipes sell for 48 pack for $12.50 and I got 4 wipes for $1.04
I am okay with this box its not a favorite but I am excited to try the new to me products and the products that I know and enjoy. I did get three full size products and those basically paid for the box this month.
I am curious to see if August's box will be a fall themed box or not. What do you think?
