Are we really in June? I mean, as I type this I can hear the rain hammering down outside, through the slight open crack in my window. I feel like we're still much earlier in the year.
Besides the atrocious weather, the summer products are out in force. This month Glossybox brings us a 'new discoveries' box*. Full of bits to help get you ready for the warmer weather, along with a cheeky extra.
Ladival - Sun Protection Spray SPF 15
£13.50 / 200ml
I usually go for the highest SPF I can but this is an interesting spray. It's waterproof, non greasy and perfume free. It claims to protect against infrared-A rays and protects against 4x more of the sun's rays. I might get a chance to try this if the sun ever reappears.
De Bruyère - After Sun Lotion - Monoï
£9.48 / 50ml
After spending time in the sun my skin tends to feel incredibly itchy. This is perfect for sensitive skin. Enriched with Monoï (gardenia petals soaked in coconut oil) and vitamin E it hydrates, nourishes and calms the skin. It sinks into the skin quickly leaving behind a floral coconut scent.
Origins - GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer
£24 / 50ml
If you want to smell like the inside of a Jaffa Cake, this is for you. It's lightweight, oil free and contains skin boosters such as ginseng and coffee bean. It helps skin become more hydrated and refreshed, leaving behind a healthy glow.
Emité Makeup - Lip & Cheek Tint
£12.50 / 6ml
This is the one product I was a bit eh on. The packaging looks rather nice but I find the stain much too watery. Due to my pale complexion I prefer more pink tones, this is rather red and I don't feel it suits me at all.
Spa To You - Konjac Sponge
Apparently konjac sponges are a big thing in the Asian beauty market. The sponges are made from all natural vegetable fibres from the konjac plant. Making for a super soft sponge that is gentle on the skin, whilst helping to lightly exfoliate. Hang it up to dry and it'll be ready for your next use.
Aussie Hair Care - 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner
£4.99 / 250ml
I've used this conditioner before and though this sample is nowhere near enough to cover my hair, it'll help when I start to get those dry ends. I tend to leave it on for longer than the stated time. After rinsing my hair feels soft, manageable and looks a whole lot shinier.
£10 (plus p&p) per month
