I am totally aware this it is the end of August already (seriously where did the summer go?) and I am just now posting up about the July GLOSSYBOX here.
But first time really does fly when you are having fun and second I only received my box about 2 weeks ago (yes in the middle of August I got my July GLOSSYBOX). Crazy, but true.
As much as I was shocked at how truly late it did indeed arrive, once I did indeed get over the shock, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I did truly enjoy this month’s beauty box of goodies, which as much as this was a summer box the items could easily be carried over into the fall and cooler months, as well.
So what exactly came in my July GLOSSYBOX? I know you are dying to see and without further ado, here is my unveiling of this awesome box!!
1. MITCHELL AND PEACH (BODY CREAM) –
A luxurious body cream containing pure English honey, organic cocoa, Vitamin B5 and shea butter to leave skin soft, nourished and delicately fragrances Like all Mitchell and Peach products, it contains steam-distilled floral essential oils from the Mitchells’ fifth-generation estate in Kent, England.
Not going to lie, I saw another body cream and was instantly thinking more of the same, but then I opened it and put it on my hands. The smell for me brought me back to my childhood, because my own grandmother used a hand cream that smelled similar to this with a fresh clean scent that also totally made my hands feels smoother and silkier. So the product description totally didn’t lie and the scent really was that added boost to bring back a small piece of my youth and childhood here, too.
FULL SIZE $61.00 / 6.08 OZ – RECEIVED SAMPLE 1.4 FL OZ
2. GLAMGLOW – YOUTHMUD TINGLEXFOLIATE TREATMENT –
This power-packed “facial in a jar” is said to work with skin’s natural collagen to exfoliate, tighten pores, smooth texture, reduce fine lines and absorb impurities. Now a cult favorite, this 10-minute mud mask is comprised of French sea clay, volcanic pumice rock and pieces of green tea leaf.
This is the one product I haven’t tried yet int he box, but excited to as the product tease sounds like it is going to be definitely worthy of use. Plus, I got to view my very good friend, Niki’s Youtube video here on this month’s box and her thoughts on this facial has me dying to try this when I get a few free quiet moments away from it all in my crazy house now!
FULL SIZE $69.00 / 1.7 OZ – RECEIVED SAMPLE .5 FL. OZ
3. SKIN INC – CUSTOM-BLENDED BRIGHTENING SERUM –
Say hello to clear, radiant skin with this custom-blend of tone-improving vitamin A, detoxifying chlorella, and hydrating hyaluronic acid. Featuring Skin Inc’s patented encapsulation technology, this not only improves skin tone and the appearance of dark eye circles, but also tackles dullness and dryness.
This is truly one of my new all time favorites. See when I received this box, my skin had recently broken out from my period and the heat, as well. I used it over night and the next morning the blemishes that I had on my lower forehead and cheek were definitely healing and less noticeable. I also have dark circles and was hopeful (have tried so many products for this) for this end, as well. I have to say that the dark circles are bit less dark (might be my imagination), but still for the healing effect on my broken out skin, I am thinking I may need to buy this one even after I use what was sent to me this month.
FULL SIZE $45.00 / .34 OZ – RECEIVED FULL SIZE!
4. PHILIP B – PH RESTORATIVE DETANGLING TONING MIST –
A weightless, daily detangling mist that leaves hair shining and frizz-free. This keratin-safe leave-in toner works by adjusting the pH of tap water to seal the cuticle of your hair for smooth finish. Spritz on after your shower or throughout the day to instantly revive your style!
Not sure what a toning mist is, but from what I read on the packaging and the description was hopeful that this would help my summertime frizzy, wavy hair. I have been wearing my hair more natural now that it is summer and not drying and straightening as much. So, again the frizz has been here with the warmth and the humidity nonetheless, too. I opened, shook it up as the directions instruct and sprayed it on.
Not going mince words, I hated the smell. It reminded me of an old bologna or even olive loaf sandwich from when I was younger and would bring to school with me. As much as I loved to eat those back int he day, the smell is less then desirable for one’s hair.
However even negating the smell, did it do the trick as leaving my hair smooth?
No as much as I hope for, so between the smell and it not truly helping my frizz, I think I will be forgetting this one at least for now.
FULL SIZE $24.00 / 4.23 FL OZ – RECEIVED SAMPLE 2 FL. OZ
5. MALIN + GOETZ – MOJITO LIP BALM –
Featuring a refreshing mojito flavor, this gel balm melts into lips to moisturize without stickiness. Ue a dab as a treatment, and a bit more for a glossy, not to mention sweet finish.
If the Skin Inc Brightening Serum was a contender for favorite this month, as I shared above then the Malin + Goetz was definitely in the running, too. See, I always feel my lips are an issue here with dryness, especially at night time, because I always seem to wake up in the morning with very dry lips after sleeping for a few hours. I tried this first during the day, because hello – Mojito flavored! I mean one of my all-time favorite cocktails and the flavor of this lip balm was not a let down in the least. And then I used it at night and absolutely loved it and woke up int he morning to truly much less dry lips, which were still pretty moisturized from using this overnight.
So, this one is also a keeper for me, too!
FULL SIZE $12.00 / .35 OZ – RECEIVED SAMPLE .20 OZ
