Glossybox June 2013 //Summer Looks

I know what you are all thinking ...Haven't you just reviewed a Glossybox???  ...Well, yes!!  But I signed up mid May meaning there hasn't been a big gap between the two boxes ...which I'm not complaining about ....!!
First of all I have to tell you how my opinion has changed slightly on the Hermes delivery service since the last box ....Apart from the fact I didn't really like their online tracking system (if you haven't used them before its hard to understand!)  Last month I received my dispatch email from Glossybox, a week later it arrived, this this month I received the email at 23:40 Friday night and received the box at 08:50 Saturday morning the next day!!!  I would say that is pretty supers service so I would like to thank both companies for that!!!!

Now on to the box.....

  1. Nuxe- Huile Prodigieuse OR
  2. Monu Professional Skincare -Hydrating Moisturiser SPF 15
  3. Figs & Rouge Coco Rose
  4. Paul Mitchell Curls - Full Circle Leave-In Treatment and Ultimate Wave
  5. Q -Body Spray
Overall, again I am pretty happy with this box, I have two clear favourites so far, number one being the Nuxe oil!!  It is gorgeous and looks great in the amazing weather we have been having recently!!  ..She says as it is now raining outside BOO... but I have been using this only on my face so far for a great summer glow!  It is a dry oil and doesn't leave you looking greasy which is great and it smells gorgeous!!  I would definitely consider purchasing this in a full size though at 10ml I have used it nearly everyday since Saturday and theres hardly a dint in it which is great!!  I also received an oil in May's box in the form of Caudalie Divine Oil,  I must say I prefer the smell of the Caudalie, but I do really like the Nuxe too!!
I am also loving the Figs & Rouge Coco Rose Lip Balm too, super subtle sheen for your lips, and can apparently be used in other areas to moisturise as well as being use on the eye lids according to the accompanying leaflet, though I cant say I have tried this.  It looks super summery when applied, my only fault with it is that it doesn't last very long.  I will probably go through this quite quickly at 12.5ml this is a full sized product worth £5.00.
Q: Balance Body Spray, I cant say I have heard heard of this brand, nor seen it on the shelves, but it does smell lovely!!  I have been keeping this in my handbag for a bit of a spritz on the go.  I must say, I wasn't expecting this in the box but it is nice, "A floral harmony of Iris and Mimosa, Romantic, soft and sensuous"  I do love the Mimosa smell.  This is another full size at 100ml worth £2.29  I probably would repurchase this if I was to see it, take it away on my many camping trips etc.

Paul Mitchell Curls, I have used both of these products once and I will reserve judgement on these until I have put them to the test again ...but they didn't really do anything for me, im not even sure why I was sent these to be honest but I'm not complaining ...I shall try agin....

Finally Monu Hydrating Moisturiser, which I actually haven't tried yet, I got a moisturiser in May's box in the form of L'Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream which I really loved so I just hope this is as good, though with SPF 15 it is probably going to be great summer staple!!

The only thing I did find bizarre about this months box is the packaging, for 'Summer Looks', it was pretty doom and gloom with the black tissue paper and black bed of paper which the products sat on ...but oh well, looking forward to July's box already!!
