Glossybox: June 2012.

The ladies at Glossybox USA kindly sent me their June 2012 box, which i received just yesterday.  The theme of this past month's box is "Summer Simplicity", which is all about restoring your natural beauty and letting it shine through this summer.  I am really with this idea and agree that less is more during the summertime.  Futzing with makeup and hair can be time consuming and especially during the hot and humid summer months, isn't always worth it as they can easily get ruined.

I was blown away by the first Glossybox i received (review here), so i was excited to see what this box had in store.  I love the variety of products this box had - everything from a hair treatment to shave cream.  Although they're not all full-size products (the last box featured five full-size products and a deluxe sample), i still appreciate the deluxe-size samples i received.  The brands featured in this box are also familiar to me, so i'm looking forward to trying out the different products these brands have to offer.

I can see myself using all of these products up, which is not a common feeling for me to have!  I'm super excited to dig in and start testing them all out.

BeautyAddicts Show-OFF Mascara: I've tried this mascara once so far and based off the first use, it is one of my favorite mascaras that i have tried.  The formula is really lush, and the brush is a massive and curved.  It's super black and creates really voluminous lashes!  Of course i will give this more tries, but so far i'm really impressed.

First Aid Beauty Smooth Shave Cream: I've tried a body wash from this brand before and really enjoyed it, but that is the extent of my exploration of this brand.  I've never tried a shaving cream out of a tube like this, so i think it will be interesting to see how it goes!

Kinerase Restructure Firming Cream: Full-size versions of products like these can run in the $100 range, so to receive a decent size sample of this is pretty awesome.  My skin is super sensitive to testing out new products and i break out very easily, but i think i will try this out anyway!

Shea Terra Organics Ultimate Moisturizing Treatment: This product's description had me at "organic" and "shea butter".  I'm always looking for that miracle lotion that can cure my dry skin and i've never tried out this brand before, so i'm looking forward to trying it out.

Wella Professionals Enrich Moisturizing Treatment: Having ridiculously long hair, moisturizing and treating my hair is a necessity to maintain it looking and feeling healthy.  I haven't tried out too many moisturizing treatments, so this will definitely be a treat.

Sample of A Perfume Organic's "Urban Organic":  This was the little extra in my box this month, it's meant to be a fresh & citric scent - sounds perfect for summer!

This month's Glossybox also came with a hard copy of the brand new GlossyMag.  GlossyMag discusses trends and news in the beauty world, and features different brands and products to go along with them.  It's lovely to flick through and discover these new trends and products.  GlossyBox will also be launching GlossyMag online.


As my second Glossybox, i was very pleased with the deluxe samples i received.  I have yet to try many of them out, but they all look very promising.  I love the variety of types of products, from hair to skincare to fragrance.  The types of products i received even vary from the April box i received, which is really impressive.  Not only is the idea of Glossybox lovely, but it is executed really well.  Who doesn't want to receive a little box full of gorgeous goodies once a month?  I'm really looking forward to the months to come!  Look out for some possible mini reviews or features with these products. :)
