I have been a massive fan of beauty boxes in the past. Early this year, I decided to pause my subscriptions because some of the samples I have accumulated in the past haven’t all been used up. Beauty boxes are one of my favourite way to try different products that I otherwise would not have even thought of trying. The first thing I reached for in the June GLOSSYBOX was the sample book, I am a massive bookworm and love getting lost in a great novel. Reading enriches my soul and keeps my imagination alive. This book is just pretty darn wonderful and would love to get my hands on an actual copy when it comes out.
Also in the box is the eness exotic africa hand cream, which smells divine and is so rich, a teeny tiny bit is all you need to keep your hands moisturised. I really loving this hand cream and it’s firmly in bag to save my dry hands during the day.
Next up, i got the 111skin Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel, which smells like baby powder. I applied it straight away under my eyes and it feels quite nice, I haven’t seen any results yet because I have only been using it for a few days now. The full size is £110 so I am pretty sure it should do some wonders to help brighten my under eyes before it runs out.
Batiste Stylist Shield My Locks Heat and Shine Spray, was a welcomed addition to the box. Because I don’t blow dry my natural hair, I will definitely be using this on my weave when I get it done. I have only used Batiste dry shampoo before and I loved it so I looking forward to testing this bad girl on my weave shortly.
BeautyPro Black Diamond Mask I love anything charcoal-y and a mask. I am always looking for products that can help unclog my pores and also help reduce shine. Nothing beats a mask moment, which I now trying to have at least once a week. This mask has all the things I look for in my masks and i cannot wait to try it out. Yayy!! excited 🙂
Sleek Power Plump Lip Crayon has to be my least favourite product. I love the way it glides on the lips and how it tingles after it’s on your lips. I just don’t like the colour Notorious Nude, it looks like the milky nude, I really dislike which is usually how nudes colours look on me which is why I refrain from wearing nude lipsticks. Other than the horrible nude colour and it breaking on me when I was trying it on the third time around, everything else about the lip crayon works for me. Sorry Sleek Makeup 🙂
I am now trying to work on upping my makeup game to keep you with the Instagrammers. One of the things I struggle with is contouring. And because I have oily/combination skin, I aM frankly clueless when It comes to finding products that work without melting my face during the day. The Manna beauty simplified glow illuminator is really amazing, it’s so dreamy on the skin when applied and its liquid which stays on for ages. You can either mix it with your foundation or it can be worn alone as a highlighter which is what I have done to glow my cheeks 🙂
I have never ever used ModelCo products because I have felt that it is for lighter skinned people. I was proven right when I tried their contour stick. It’s completely the wrong shade for my skin tone and it’s also a bit too oily for me. If you can recommend a product that might suit a dark-skinned girl like me, please go ahead and leave your suggestions below.
Finally, my favourite product in this month’s box has to be thisworks In Transit Camera Close-Up. This is so creamy and it feels amazing on the skin. A must product for anyone looking for a product which helps to nourish the face. I would love to get the full size if it continues to work on my face as it has done for the past three days. Hopefully, I don’t break out if I continue to use it.
