It’s been a very hot week here in the UK, and my July GLOSSYBOX – Seaside Splash couldn’t have arrived at a better time. Of course this Summer addition of the beauty box is packed with colour and skin care for sunny days on the beach. I know I’m going to love a few of these products and have my fingers crossed for the rest. Let’s get going!
Ciate London – Paint Pot in The Glossip, Full Size £9.00
This polish is lovely! The formula is extremely pigmented and I think in a hurry you could definitely get away with one coat. It also dried pretty quick and the colour is a gorgeously bright coral. I’m really excited about this beauty.
Sleek – Pout Paint in Pinkini & Lava, Full Size £4.99 each
Wowza these sure do pack a punch of colour! I tried this on a good while back and didn’t get any as at the time I wasn’t such a brave lipstick wearer. Now however, they are a fantastic addition to on growing collection of lip products. The formula really is like a paint (be careful with clothes and furniture, this is a bad boy to wash out). The formula is matte and extremely pigmented which at first can appear a little scary. You can blend a tiny amount onto your lips for a more subtle colour though and they do last a very long time. I like that you can mix the colours together to create your own shades. I can’t wait to mix up a bright coral with these two.
Alterna Haircare – Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist, Full Size £23.00
What a mouthful! I’ve not come across this brand before, but then I’m not very good with hair products. I do have a salt spray which I assume is similar to this texturizing mist and have to admit I use it very rarely. I just don’t have the hair for a good ‘messy’ look. I shall however, give it a go and for those of you with a natural kink in your hair I’m sure it would be very fun to have a play around with.
Coola – Organic Suncare Face SPF30 cucumber moisturizer, full size £25.99
With a full size tube at that price I shall be making the most of this little one. I don’t actually own a sun cream specifically designed for the face as I tend to splatter my general one all over, and lots of my foundations and bb creams have spf in too. I like the idea of this yummy cucumber scented cream. I think I’ll have a go at wearing it underneath my foundation in the hot weather next week and see if it does the job well.
Anatomicals – Spray Misty for me facial spritz, full size £6.00
I feel a little ‘meh’ about this product. I’m not a fan of face mists and this one doesn’t have any particular draw for me either. The scent is ok, the spray a little uneven and the packaging isn’t to my taste, but I shall pop it in my bag if I ever get a chance to lie by a pool this Summer.
I have to say I’m very impressed with this month’s box and am quite excited about the products inside. Just taking a quick look back at last month’s box, I thought I would share my fave. I have worn this Nuxe oil on the top of my cheek bones an awful lot this month. It leaves such a lovely golden glow to the skin.
