GlossyBox July

Bex Londoner N6 EDT
Full size: £81 for 100ml / Sample size: 2ml (worth approx. £1.60)
I'm not really a fan of fragrance samples in beauty boxes because they don't last long at all and you can get them for free in department stores. Having said that, I like the concept of these fragrances, which aim to capture and reflect the vibe of different areas of London, mine being the elegance of Highgate Village and Hampstead Heath. This is definitely a very androgynous scent, which does smell nice, but I won't be purchasing the full size.

Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Moisture Mist
Full size: £9.35 for 300ml / Sample size: 100ml (worth approx. £3.10)
I am very intrigued and excited by this product, because not only is it a moisture spray for your hair, but for your skin too! I have used this a few times and I must say I can really see the benefits to my hair and skin - they just appear to be a bit more refreshed and moisturised. This is perfect for sunny days to keep you cool and perk up your hair and skin, and the bottle is a really great size to give it a good try. It will definitely be coming on holiday with me!

Monu Night Renewal Complex
Full size: £36.95 for 50ml / Sample size: 20ml (worth approx. £14.80)
A very nice sample to receive, and I'm happy it is tailored to my combination skin. However, I'm not sure I really need an anti-ageing product just yet. I will give it a go overnight and if I don't see any dramatic results or fall in love with it, I will give it to my lovely mum, who is always willing to take off my hands the products I don't want.

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Frosting in Irish Cream Pavlova
Full size: £10 for 15ml
Yes yes yes! I have wanted to try this for so long and it has not disappointed me! I have been wearing this beautiful bright pink creamy gloss all day on my lips and cheeks, and it hasn't been sticky or slippery at all. It smells absolutely delicious and makes your lips look really stunning! I'm not so sure I like it on my cheeks as it is a little too shiny, and I prefer a matte look, but for my lips it is fabulous. I will definitely be repurchasing this once it runs out.

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse
Full size: £17.50 for 50ml / Sample size: 10ml (worth approx. £3.50)
Ahhhh! Like all beauty junkies, I have been wanting to get my hands on one of these babies for a long time! It is a multi-purpose dry oil, which nourishes, repairs and softens your hair and skin. This sample size is really great because you don't need to use a lot at all, so I know I will be able to give it a real trial. After using this in my hair this morning, it was soft, shiny and smooth - very impressive! It also makes your skin super soft and leaves a gorgeous subtle lingering scent. Perfect to take away on holiday!

Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Regimen
Full size: £17-38 / Sample size: 3 x 2ml (worth average of £0.50 each approx.)
This is a really nice little bonus - 3 sachets of Elizabeth Arden skin products. I would say these each have enough in them to use 2 times. Includes Exfoliating Cleanser, Optimizing Skin Serum and Skin Balancing Lotion (SPF15). I will enjoy giving these a go but it is unlikely that I will buy the full size of any of these products as they are very expensive.

Overal worth: £34.50 approx.
Overall thoughts: A really great box! Love all the multi-purpose products.
