july 2011 glossybox

So today I got my first ever Glossybox, the July one. I was so unbelievably excited to get it and couldn't wait to rip it open, but I waited! I waited so I could take lots of pictures for you guys! Anyway, instead of rambling, I'll get on with the pictures:

So my first product was some Ciate Nail Enamel and I got the colour Mojito. It's a really nice colour but it's more of a neon-y green than what the picture shows. I don't actually have a colour like this in my own collection so it was nice to get this one. I'm also planning to use the offer that Glossybox have given us to buy some more nail paints and a speed coat.

The second product was some Illamasqua Powdered Metal in Ether. I think this is my favourite thing out of the whole box. I've heard so many people rave about Illamasqua products before and I never actually thought I would be able to own any because it's not something I can usually afford but now I've got a powder! I'm looking forward to trying it out but then again I don't want to use it all up too quickly! I'm thinking of taking it on holiday with me as a loose powder to wear at night.

The third product was some Orla Kiely Eau De Parfum. Apparently this is her debut fragrance and let me tell you, it smells amazing! I can only smell floral scents but apparently it includes bergamot, fresh fig and chocolate. Hopefully I'll be able to get a bigger bottle soon because I really love it! I may look out for it in duty free when I'm at the airport next week.

This was probably the thing I was least excited about. Mainly because I wasn't really sure what it was. However upon reading my card it says it's a special liposome formula to protect the skin from UV induced ageing. I don't think this could have come at a better time! I'm going on holiday next week so I'm planning to take it with me and use it every day for my face as extra protection.

The last product was a full bottle product and I was so shocked to receive this! It's Weleda's Pomegranate Regenerating Body Oil and it's probably the only body oil I own. I'm not sure when I'll use it because my skin is very oily naturally and I wouldn't want to add more oil to my body. Anyway, we'll see.

So that's what I got in my first Glossybox this month. When I use the products I'll be sure to do a review on them! Hope everybody else who got a Glossybox enjoyed there's as much as I enjoyed mine!

To finish off, here's a little picture of my cat Toby getting a bit excited by the ribbon on my Glossybox. He decided to start playing with it and chewed it which shows that Glossybox really is for everyone!


  1. Hey Beth, that Glossybox looks really good! :D
