June Glossybox: American Beauty

I haven’t posted in a while because I have been thoroughly enjoying my Summer vacation. I’ve been taking lots of pictures of what I’ve been up to and I’m working on posting them.

This is my last Glossybox. I’ve been subscribed for 3 months and I’m just not that into anything I’ve gotten and I think the Glossybox customer service is sub par. I am only subscribed to Ipsy and Julep Maven now and I’ve been toying around with the idea of renaming my blog because I’m just not that into getting boxes right now. I’ve been thinking that I’d rather spend my money on things that I actually want instead of surprises. I guess I have some thinking to do…

Anyway, here is what I got in my June Glossybox:

  • TARTE COMPLEXION ENHANCING LIPSTICK in Medium to Tan
  • C.BOOTH HONEY ALMOND NOURISHING DRY OIL MIST
  • OSCAR DE LA RENTA ESSENTIAL LUXURIES FRAGRANCE SAMPLES
  • SPARITUAL FAVORITES NAIL POLISH in Home Body
  • PHILIP B. PEPPERMINT AND AVOCADO VOLUMIZING AND CLARIFYING SHAMPOO

I am fairly pleased with this month’s Glossybox. The nail polish was a pleasant surprise. I really like the formula but the color is not my favorite. I might still use it from time to time if I’m going for a neutral look.

My favorite item in the box was the C. Booth Dry Oil Mist. It smells great and it is very moisturizing without being greasy. I am glad it is a big sample!

I also like the Tarte Complexion Enhancing Lipstick but I am disappointed that I got the Medium to Tan color because my skin tone is fairly light. I don’t think Glossybox pays much attention to the information you provide on your profile. This isn’t the first time I’ve had this problem with Glossybox. The color still works but it is a little darker than I would have chosen for myself.

The shampoo will be useful for the trip I’m taking next week.

I really did not like the perfume samples. I thought it was great that they sent more than one but they are way too smelly! I had them in the little bag in my bedroom and I could smell them in the living room! I put them away in a drawer in case I’m ever feeling adventurous but I don’t think I’ll be using these anytime soon. I am sensitive to smells and wearing any of the samples would probably give me a terrible headache!

Overall, I am happy with the box but I have seen enough of Glossybox for the time being. What do you think about the June Glossybox?

My May 2013 Glossybox and June Glossybox Spoilers

This is my second Glossybox and I am feeling pretty Glossy-blah about it. I don’t really care for any of the items that came in this box but I will probably still give each of them a try.

Here is what I got:

MY MULTI-PURPOSE MATTIFYING MOISTURIZER:

I guess I’m kind of excited to try this since I do get a little shiny from time to time…

ETRE BELLE COLLAGEN & ALOE VERA HYDRO MASK:

It’s a mask, yipee…

NICKA K NEW YORK ABSOLUTE! PERFUME STICK:

The scent I got smells alright, it’s not my favorite but it isn’t gross.

AMORE PACIFIC COLOR CONTROL CUSHION COMPACT:

This would be exciting if it matched my skin tone…

SEBASTIAN PROFESSIONAL VOLUPT SPRAY:

I’ll use this, I am always looking for new volumizing hair products. Still not that exciting…

EUROPEAN WAX CENTER THE EXFOLIATE and SLOW IT BODY WASH:

I am not a fan of waxing and I think that’s what these are meant to help with. I might use them… might not… I will probably give the waxing coupon to my sister because she gets her eyebrows done. Mine are nicely shaped and I only need to tweeze a few hairs here and there so I don’t think a wax would really be worth it for me.

SLOW IT BODY WASH

Well, this was not the greatest Glossybox. I think I might try one more month because I really like the spoilers I have seen for the June box.

According to Dujour “The June box will include one of six nail colors from Bondi New York, a Tarte Complexion Enhancing lipstick and a sample from Oscar de la Renta’s Essential Luxuries fragrance collection—along with a few surprise products that haven’t yet been announced. Each product is manufactured in the United States, fitting with the “American Beauty” theme of the June box.”
