June Glossybox - The summer staples edition

Mr postman just arrived with June's Glossybox this morning and I thought what better than spoiling it for you guys who haven't received their monthly boxes yet. I'm nice that way. I am a little on the fence with the box for now. Perhaps when I use the products for a month or so and fall in love with them, I might change my opinion regarding it. Just by having a look at the products, I found it a little meh. If Summer's all about bright colours, then I don't see the point of including a black eye pencil and a gloomy grey nail paint. Keeping colours aside, these two products are actually of good quality. I've had a play with them.

I am quite excited to try out the Monu Moisturiser as it contains SPF and more importantly is travel sized meaning it goes straight into my travel skincare bag with other of it's miniature buddies. I cannot stress on how impossible it is to get samples out of counters in London especially. I usually end up buying sample sized skincare from ebay. Who buys samples for god's sake would our American bloggers ask. Londoners you see. Hence I love Glossybox for including travel sized skincare. Always appreciated.

The Figs & Rouge Coco Rose Lip balm is completely new to me. It is super moisturising and has a hint of pink sheen to it with some shimmer. Pretty! Organic Surge's Colour Protect Conditioner I haven't tried out yet but I usually do end up liking their products and I am hoping this will be one of them.

On the whole, not bad at all but that pop of bright colour is missing I thought.

I agree it does look a little underwhelming...

I'm always amazed how I seem to get completely different products from everyone else in my Glossybox's. I didn't get any make up but I did get some hair products. I'm happy with it though :) http://newwithhashtags.co.uk/glossybox-june-2013/#more-1449

This looks good. My favourite item that I got was the lip balm (I got the other colour).
I wouldn't have minded getting the Monu moisturiser though.
