Around two weeks ago my June Glossybox arrived, I opened it, photographed everything and let you know what I thought of it so far, (click here to read my initial thoughts and contents post). Now that I’ve had time to fully test out all the products fairly though, it’s time to revisit the contents of my box to let you know what I’ve been loving these past two weeks, and what really isn’t worth your wonga.
Here we go.
The first thing I received was the Glossybox goat hair brush, which I’ve been using regularly since it arrived, and it’s a good brush, but I stick by what I said earlier; it’s not revolutionary. I wouldn’t by any means have gone out and purchased this, but now that I have it, I’m enjoying having it in my make up kit. Blusher, bronzer and applying a light face powder to specific areas of the face are uses I’ve found for this.
The second thing I received was the Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp mascara which I tested the very day I got the box. This mascara didn’t do anything for me, I tried it twice after the initial test and I just really didn’t like it. It clumps in some areas and doesn’t coat lashes at all in others and is a very ‘wet’ consistency, it just doesn’t dry quickly enough to avoid mess around the eyes. Once I did manage an even layer, after much mascara removal and reapplication, my lashes didn’t look particularly volumised by any means. Not a fan I’m afraid.
Thirdly I received the BM Beauty Summer Warmth bronzer which I enjoyed from the moment I tried it. My niggles at the loose powder and tiny pot have only worsened though this month, which I know is down to it being a sample, but it means you just get way too much product on your brush and therefore waste a lot of the product every time you use it. I have to say the effort it requires to not make a huge mess with this bronzer has put me off using it as often as I have wanted to. The colour however is gorgeous, even on my pale skin, it’s not orange and it just leaves you with a healthy glow, so if you’re meticulously neat and never get excess product everywhere, this is definitely for you.
The fourth set I received is definitely the hero of the box for me. This Dermologica three step Clean Start set has done wonders for my skin. Ever since moving to London I’ve had problem skin, which I never experienced through my teenage years, so I really don’t have the skincare knowledge that many have. I was a face wipe girl through and through and it never mattered. Now, I fondly look back on those days and wonder how I got away with it as my skin gets so irritated these days, I dont know what to do with it. This set however has really helped combat breakouts and I’ve seen a definite difference in my complexion. I don’t like the moisturiser, it’s a little greasy, so I’ve been sticking to my Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturiser, but the cleanser in particular leaves my skin feeling super clean and fresh, I really want to purchase the large size of this, however only if the items come separately as I don’t want to splash out on a moisturiser I’ll never use.
Lastly was the Vichy Dermablend foundation cream stick tester pack, and after my initial use of this I didn’t revisit it, purely down to the fact that the product came in a sachet that did not reseal, so I thought it was a little unsanitary to put it on my face again. I’ll reiterate what I said initially about this foundation which is that it’s perfect for those who like heavier coverage and don’t have dry skin, but it does accentuate dry patches, however it is quite good as a concealer. For the money though I don’t think I’d pay for this just to conceal my dark circles, my Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection works perfectly for that.
That’s it for the follow up and indepth review post! What did you get in your Glossybox, and what are you loving/hating? Have you tried any of the products I’m testing out at the moment? Let me know by leaving me a comment or tweeting me @MillieDelacoe. Until next time..
