Glossybox July 2012

So I definitely feel like I have been neglecting my blog, and for that, i'm sorry! But with the gorgeous weather we've been having in the UK, I have been outside making the most of it and trying to get a tan! Anyhoo, it's that time of the month again when pretty pink boxes start appearing at the door. I received my July Glossybox today, and as always was super excited to see what was inside. I had read a few spoilers, so I knew what products were flying around this month and I knew exactly which one I wanted to get, although I wasn't particularly hopeful as my last few boxes haven't been fab. 

So, I dived straight into the packaging only to find that the product I wanted was there, I literally let out a scream. The Hd Brows Palette was something I had already got in a previous box from last year. I had been using it everyday since and as you can see, had hit pan. I had been debating for ages on whether I would repurchase this, as I really only use the one colour and was just going to go back to using a Mac eyeshadow, but getting this in my Glossybox has left me without a brow worry for at least the next 6 months!

I was actually really happy with all the other products I got too- my next favourite being the Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Lip Frosting in 'Irish Cream Pavlova' (such a cute name) which is a gorgeous pink cream gloss that can be used on both the lips and cheek.

I also got-

Monu Golden Glow, a gradual moisturising tan for the face and body. I'm really interested in giving this a go, as I love gradual tanners (Garnier Summer Body being my HG moisturising tanner) I am going to try this on my face tonight as I have started to get a bit of a body tan from this glorious weather, but like to keep my face protected when outside. This will hopefully help me match up perfectly!

Clynol Salon Exclusive Enrich Colour Shampoo- Can't wait to try this, I love shampoo's that give your hair a nice glossy shine like you have just come straight from a salon. It smells lovely too!

Lastly I got a couple of Elizabeth Arden goodies. I love all the 8 hour products, so I will be interested to see how these work for me. I got the Visible Difference Skin Balancing Lotion SPF 15 and a bonus product of sachet samples of other products from this line. (Which are all targeted at combination skin, perfect for me, so they must be starting to use our beauty profiles, yay!)

Overall I am super impressed with this box, I didn't have high hopes, as the last few boxes I have received have been very dissapointing, but I am left feeling super happy! I feel like this month Glossybox have really made a come back in my books, I just hope the standard is kept this high!
