My GlossyBox: June 2011 Edition...

Okay so I started writing this at 12:37pm, approximately 7 mins after the Posty dropped this off at my door. Excitement is not the word... I literally squealed at him... Dread to think what he thought!

For all of you who have been away from the Blogosphere, GlossyBox is a subscription service which allows you to try deluxe samples every month for a teeny tiny price of £10 a month. I have been lusting after a service like this after watching YouTube videos of the US Birch Box and so am ecstatic to be a part of this. 

First off, how beautiful is the packaging! The company obviously cares about its image and this definitely radiates luxury. From the gorgeous logo emblazoned postal box, to the tissue wrapped, ribbon-tied products, the attention to detail is perfect.

This box is the "5 Summer Essentials" and contains 5 lovely sized products:

  1. OPI Designer Series Mini in Coronation
  2. BioEffect EGF Serum
  3. Batiste Dry Shampoo in Original
  4. Lalique Perles de Lalique Eau De Parfum
  5. Rouge Bunny Rouge Mini Lip Gloss in Secret Places of Love 054

As a Nail Polish lover, I <3 the Mini OPI! It is a gorgeous silvery platinum with diamond glitter specks, absolutely beautiful. Will be lovely on its own and over the top of lighter polishes to add a glittery sparkle to it. 

The lip gloss is beautiful too. It says it's a mini, but it is of a decent size being 7ml. It is a lovely peachy-pink-coral colour with gold shimmers, perfect for summer and a great tan enhancing colour. The formula is filled with vitamins and oils to hydrate and plump the lips. The packaging of this is again so pretty yet simple.

The product I'm most excited to try out is the little BioEffect bottle. This alone is worth £30, and although it states it is an an anti-aging type product it is suitable for all skin types and promises to stimulate the growth of new skin cells leading to an improved complexion. Sounds very interesting indeed. Expect a full review of this as soon as it's used up!

I'm already a great Batiste fan and so this little handbag sized one is a great addition to the box and definitely a summer essential! Finally the little sample of perfume is very fresh and light smelling, slightly rosy and slightly sweet. The full sized bottle retails for around £50 and is something I'd probably never try, but it sometimes take someone else to point something out for you.
A little excerpt from the Lalique book which came in the box.
Overall, I'm so happy with GlossyBox and all of the products I have received and cannot wait until next month! It looks like each box may be different, or even tailored to the subscriber so I'm looking forward to reading everyone else's thoughts.
