Beauty | Glossybox | August

I used to be a subscriber of Glossybox a few years ago but I fell out of love of the products I was receiving and didn't get as excited when it arrived so I cancelled it but recently I've been seeing lots of unboxing posts and videos of them and decided now would be a great time to sign back up and guess what? I'm so glad I did. The boxes have definitely improved and are now full of products I look forward to opening.

For those of you who don't know it's a subscription box containing 5 beauty products sent straight to your letter box every month. I use the rolling subscription which allows you to cancel at any time. This is £10 + £3.25 P+P.

This month was the girls just want to have sun box so everything a girl could want for the summer.

First up was the Batiste invisible dry shampoo and conditioner. Now who can live without dry shampoo so this is always a great thing to receive! It's in the scent orange and pomegranate which gives an instant refresh of the hair leaving it looking and smelling fresh. I like the idea of it having added conditioner too as I find dry shampoo can often leave the hair feeling quite dry. For me this was a winner product. RRP £4.49 (for full size)

Next was the total repair ice hair mask. As most of you will know I have very unruly hair - to say it's wild is an understatement so I rely on oils and hair masks to keep it in the best condition possible. With macadamia oil this mask is perfect at helping to tame hair. I use it twice a week by swapping it for my usual condition and it leaves my hair soft, smooth and smelling divine. RRP £14.99 (for full size)

I was very excited about the next one. Model launcher safari sun bronzer. I'm a massive fan of a bronzer and this one is the cutest leopard print pattern. It's quite a light pay off colour wise with a soft shimmer which I think is great for wearing on it's own to add that soft glow especially hen you're away and don't want to wear too much make up and guess what? It's full size! This product alone would cost £16.50!

Up next another full size product (they really are treating us this month!) Radial Suede lips in shade big apple. I'm a huge fan of Rodial skin care but I've never tried any of their make up and this didn't disappoint. It's very creamy and hydrating yet matte on the lips as I do always go for a matte lip as I tend to find they last longer. This shade will be perfect for the autumn with it being a soft berry shade. RRP £22

The last beauty product was a palette from Essence (again another full size!) In my opinion you can never have too many palettes and I'm obsessed with buying them. This one definitely excited me with the little beads in the lid. Who doesn't love a little sassy palette? It came with 4 colour pans equally sassy packaging full of glitter - I'm seriously impressed! 

Theres 2 eyeshadows, 1 blush and 1 highlighter. The 2 eyeshadows were shades 04 - it's my birthday which is a very sparkly silver shade which I know I'll get a lot of use out of and 05 - T.G.I.F which is a nude blush shade again I know I'll use this nearly every day. The blush is in shade 01 - Rhythm of the night which is a pink shade with shimmer. The highlighter shade is 01 - my special highlight and is in the gorgeous golden shade which is always my go to with a tan. RRP £1.50 per palette and £1.50 per powder.

They also included the cutest little Aloha bracelet from Purelei which definitely finished off the summer theme nicely.
