If you follow my blog, you may have noticed that this month's Glossybox review is a bit late.
That is because it was shite.
I honestly had zero enthusiasm about even taking these photographs, but anyway - here we go, Glossybox June 2015. The Festival Edit.
-------MONU Spa Rosewood Reviving Mist-------
Full or Sample: Sample (50ml) | Worth: £3.58/€5.01 approx | Available At: Monushop
This is an "energising mist [that] will hydrate, revitalise and gently perfume the skin" Gently perfume. GENTLY PERFUME. No. This is full on, in-your-face Old Lady flowers. In your face. The musty smell might revive some, but all it made me want to do was open a window.
-------Kueshi Anticellulite Booster Anticellulite Lotion-------
Full or Sample: Full | Worth: £14.55/€20.36 | Available At: Kueshi
Right. This is the Festival Edit. Leaving aside the fact that I think the only think you can do for cellulite is prevention, would I not have had to start using this months ago to give it time to work before any of the Festivals? It's a full sized product, which is great, but if only it were a little more useful. This went down like a lead balloon - I put it in the Christmas drawer, so if you get this in a hamper - you're welcome.
-------Glossybox Flash Tattoos-------
Full or Sample: Full | Worth: £6.50/€9.10 | Available At: Exclusive to the box
Stop it. Stop it with the tattoos. Please. STOP IT. If I want to wear jewellery, I'll wear jewellery. If I wanted a tattoo, I'd get a tattoo. If I wanted to muck around with water and paper tattoos I'd go back to 1992 when they came free with Bubblegum.
-------Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss-------
Full or Sample: Full | Worth: £1.85/€2.59 | Available At: Penneys
I like Essence. It's a lovely affordable brand. I don't subscribe to a luxury beauty box to get something I can pick up anywhere. UK Glossybox subscribers got nail polish, the rest of us got a lipgloss. It's nice, but I already have several of these. And my diamond shoes are too tight.
-------Halo Fragrance Free Facial Wipes-------
Full or Sample Size: Sample | Worth: £1.20/€1.68 | Available At: Halowipes
I understand why these are here, wipes are an essential for any festival. I'd have liked a bigger packet, and something more natural like Water Wipes, but that's nitpicking (ME?!). They fit well with the theme of the box, and they're handy for popping in the handbag so I can wipe lipstick off my hand in Boots. The wipes themselves are fine - but I won't be using them on my face.
Next month promises a French theme in collaboration with an illustrator, so I'm hoping that the focus won't just be on the box design - two bad boxes in a row and I'll be cancelling, so fingers crossed the July one comes through!
