Glossybox | Vive Le France for July 2015

Bonjour my loves!

I hope you have all had a wonderful week and a great start to the weekend. I thought today I would share with you the latest Limited Edition Glossybox that is available to purchase this month. As the name suggests, this months box is inspired by all things French and features a tour de force of favourite French finds that contain ingredients that really work. The first thing I noticed when unboxing this months box was in-fact the packaging - I mean it is pretty hard to miss it! Fashions 'it' artist of the moment, Jamie Lee Reardin put her imaginative eye and skilled hand to work illustrating July's limed edition Glossybox. She has put pencil to paper for the likes of Chanel, Givenchy and Christian Dior and has sketched famous faces such as Cara Delevingne and Anna Wintour. 

Glossybox Exclusive Travel Pouch | RRP £3.99

The first product you notice once you untie the ribbon is this super chic and pretty travel pouch that features the same exclusive illustration artwork by Jamie Lee Reardin. This zip-lock pouch is the perfect for travel and storing your makeup on the go everyday. I really like how it is made from a plastic type material which makes cleaning extremely quick and easy. The travel pouch itself is one of the five products featured in this months box and I really do love it.

Lollipops Lip Balm Delicieuse | RRP £4.15 (Full Size)

The first product featured in this months Glossybox is a Lollipops Lip Balm Delicieuse. This is the only full size product in this months box, minus the makeup pouch of course, and so far I really do like it. My lips have been quite dry lately so trialling a new lip balm was just what I needed, plus it has a super sweet and delicious Vanilla scent. This rich and creamy balm immediately soothes and softens with antioxidants and vitamin E, as well as protecting the lips from UV damage. The formulation is colourless which means you could also apply this over your favourite lipstick throughout the day - especially if you are nourishing a more matte lip shade. The packaging and very cute and I think the £4.15 price tag is not that bad at all. 

Noxidoxi Enhancing Serum Base | Deluxe Sample

Firstly, this is a completely new brand for me and I have to say that I really like the name 'Noxidoxi', it just rolls of the tongue - don't you think?! From Bordeaux-born brand Noxidoxi, this has a CRC6 moisturising complex, which hydrates the skins surface as well as the deeper layers, while a cocktail of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories protect the skin. As a serum product you would use this underneath your moisturiser and in some instances this would work as a great primer type product as it is said to tighten your pores!

Teoxane Cosmecuticals Perfect Skin Refiner | Deluxe Sample

This is yet again another new brand to me, however, like I have mentioned in many of my subscription box posts that is one of the great things about beauty boxes - they offer you the opportunity to try brands and products you might not have typically gone for at first glance or heard of before. With hylauronic acid to plump and hydrate skin, 10% glycol acid to help resurface the skin and calming ingredients to reduce irritation this cream sounds like it offers everything you would possibly need. Over time it is said to soothe the skins surface, decrease and refine pore size and reduce pigmentation spots. Glossybox recommend starting to use this product every other night (you'll feel a mild tingling at first) as it is quite a potent treatment. Whilst it works its magic throughout the night make sure you wear a high SPF during the day! I think this is one of the most intriguing products in the box, however, the £70 full size price tag does scare me slightly haha! 

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light Cream | Deluxe Sample

Finally, a brand I do recognise! Vichy has always been a brand I have admired from a far but never really tried out fully myself. Enriched with Vichy Thermal Spa Water and Hyluronic Acid, Aqualia Thermal Light provides continuous hydration, for up to 48 hours intense comfort and protection against daily aggressions. Light in texture makes it perfect for combination skin and it helps reinforce the skins natural moisture balance barrier, leaving you with healthy and soft-feeling beautiful skin. It has an almost gel like consistency, very much similar to my favourite Givenchy Hydra Sparkling Moisturising cream which makes it lovely to apply before makeup! I mean, doesn't this sound wonderful?! I am so excited to give this product a try and you never know, this may become a new staple for me! 

I hope you all enjoyed taking a peek inside this months Glossybox! Overall, I was impressed with this months box, however, for a limited edition box I thought there would have been a few more wow products!  Even thought that is the case I am still looking forward to trailing all of this fabulous new skincare products. The only negative I could possible see some people facing with this box is the fact it only housed skincare products and 3 out of 4 of those were for the face. However, saying that, the box was themed around achieving a healthy looking complexion so in reality you are going to receive what you have been promised. If you would like to see any in-depth reviews of the products mentioned above then please let me know. Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me via my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and I make sure to ready every single comment...they really make my day! 

What did you think of this months Glossybox? Do you like the limited edition packaging illustrated by Jamie Lee Reardin?

  1. I love the design of the box, but I was seriously disappointed with the products. One full sized product and it's a cheap lip balm? What a joke.
    I'm waiting to do a review on it after I use the products a bit more.
