Glossybox - June 2014

24 June 2014

After a bit of a disappointing start to my 3 month subscription to Glossybox, I was hoping that the June box would be an improvement! Unfortunately, I'm still not impressed with the selection I've received.

One of the things I was most excited about this month was the option to receive a So Susan product, and I was hoping I would get the blusher! I actually received the concealer quad which can also be used for contouring. I don't really use concealer and contouring is way out of my league beauty wise, so this will be rehomed. 

I also received this Novex hair cream. I'm not really sure what this is meant to be used for, I think it might just be an extra conditioning treatment but it's not something I will use. The majority of the writing on the packaging isn't in English either which doesn't really help!

The other item in this month's box that I'm pretty disappointed with is this perfume from Roger and Gallet. Perfume is a very personal thing so I think it's always a bit risky sending out a sample this big in a beauty box. This is way too floral for me and I really don't like it. Hopefully someone I know will want it!

Bad stuff aside, I was pretty pleased to see Nail Girls in the box. I would have preferred a coloured polish but I don't actually own any base coats so I'm itching to give this a try. I think this is meant to be a base and top coat, as well as a nail strengthener so it's a pretty good multi-tasker!

The final item in this month's box is this eyeshadow brush from Teeez. I don't have many brushes so new ones are always welcome. I'm really excited to try out some different looks with this!

Overall, only 2 out of the 5 products in this month's box will be kept. The rest will be given away to whoever wants them. Looking at this month's Birchbox, Glossybox just doesn't compare in terms of quality. There might have been smaller samples in Birchbox, but at least they're all items I will actually use. 

What did you think of this month's Glossybox?


  1. I think this is the problem with these boxes - they can be so hit and miss, and you see something someone else received and think how much you'd rather have had that!! At least you've got a couple of products you'll use, I guess?! I'd be disappointed too as I hate floral perfumes and instructions you can't understand are never very helpful...

  2. I didn't mind my box this month, I got two of the same things as yours, the brush and the nailgirls base (which I wasn't pleased with) If you want to see the different things I got then you can

    1. Your box was much nicer than mine, I'm jealous! I wish I'd received the blusher or the shower gel!

  3. Your this month´s box looks like a total miss. I can´t really understand how can they send you a product wihtout any information in English :S

    1. It did say how to use it on the little card that comes with the box but I threw it away by accident! Without the card it's pretty much useless though.
