Glossybox | July 2017

Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and are having a wonderful week. I thought today we would take a peek inside this months Glossybox. Despite the rain and humidity we have been experiencing lately, Glossybox are still celebrating summer with their July 'Hello Summer' box! This months box features an edit of five travel essentials that will see you going from plane to poolside in no time whatsoever. This is the first of the Glossybox summer collectors edition boxes, so make sure you keep an eye out because you will be able to twin it with next month's special creation...'Girls Just Wanna Have Sun'! Also, to keep your travels as chic as possible, Glossybox have also designed an exclusive limited edition 'Hello Summer' beach tote bags for Glossies to get their hands on which will be available to purchase from

Spectrum Collections Small Fan A10 Brush | Full Size | £4.99 

This has got to be my favourite item in this months box! I have been a huge fan of Spectrum brushes for a pretty long time now and I recently picked up the full 12-piece Marbleous collection and I am so pleased with them. This is Spectrums best-selling fan brush and it is perfect for applying setting powder and highlighter, however, I also LOVE using brushes like this to contour. The thin fan design makes it so easy for you to chisel your cheeks and contour your nose. For £4.99 this brush is an absolute steal!

Bellapierre Cosmetics Banana Setting Powder | Full Size | £25.00

This Kim K worthy Banana Setting Powder by Bellapierre was one of the first items that caught my eye when opening the box. I adore banana powders because they help counteract redness, discolouration, blemishes and dark circles which concealing any midday glow. Loose powder has made a huge comeback thanks to YouTube's fascination with baking. This method involves letting finishing powders sit on the face for five to ten minutes in order to allow the heat from your face set your foundation before the powder is dusted off. I have been reaching for this daily, especially as I have a natural tan at the moment, however, do I think it's worth £25? Not really.

CuteBalm Macaroon Tint Balm in Crushed Berry | Full Size | £5.99 

I adore Macaroons so when I saw this cute Macaroon lip balm in the box I literally had a little moment of joy. It's pretty, can be used as a lip and cheek colour and smells good enough to eat. You can use a brush or your fingers to apply and creates a gorgeous sheer berry hue once applied. Does it remind me a little bit of children's makeup from when I was younger? Maybe a little. Do I care? Hell no. It's a fab product.

MONU Professional Skincare MONUspa Soothing After Sun Lotion | Deluxe Sample | Full Size is £19.95

This is the only deluxe sample in the box but it is still a great sized product. With the most active form of aloe vera as well as vitamin E and shea butter, this luxurious after sun cools, hydrates and helps to calm sunned-out-skin. A holiday companion like this couldn't get anymore useful and I absolutely adore after sun because I genuinely believe using it alongside other moisturisers helps prolong your tan. I would have loved to use this when I was in Dubai last month but I am off to the Dominican Republic next month and I will be sure to pack it alongside my skincare and toiletries.

Papanga Spiral Hairbands | Full Size | £4.99

I. Am. Obsessed. With. These. Hairbands. I picked up a bunch from H&M around 6 months ago and I have been using them every single day ever since. I wasn't 100% sold on them originally because I didn't want to give in to the hype but spiral hairbands like these are amazing. Hair can damage and fray when you secure it with tight elastic hair bands, however, these spiral hairbands prevent breakage, split ends and also limits any kinks in your hair.

Overall, I am so pleased with this months box and I am going to get so much use out of every single product. It was great to see that there was a good variety of products for your body, a beauty tool, makeup and hair accessories. This months box is available for just £5 (usually £10) plus P&P from when you enter the code SUMMER at the checkout. I can't wait to see what Augusts box has to offer! You can compare the 2017 box to my July 2016 review here.

Lots of Love

  4. LOve your photography in this post. This months Glossybox looks like a good one. I like it when sub boxes include brands I have never tried & also some brands that have a lot of hype around them - like Spectrum Brushes. I have always wanted to try their brushes - they look so pretty.
