GlossyBox June

GlossyBox Serie Exclusiv Pro Beauty Brush
Full size: £15
Hmm...I'm a little disappointed in this fairly unremarkable brush. I feel like it should be the sort of thing you receive as a bonus rather than an actual item. It is quite a sleek looking brush, shiny and black with the GlossyBox logo, and the bristles are soft goat hair. It is a nice size to apply blusher or a contour, which I do like, but on the whole I'm not impressed with this item.

Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp Mascara
Full size: £16.90 for 9ml / Sample size: 2.5ml (worth £4.70 approx.)
Again, I was really quite disappointed in this item. It is a very small sample size, which I suppose is ideal for your handbag on a night out, but I would have preferred a bigger size. Having said that, the brush is absolutely fabulous - a really fat brush with bristles that reach every lash - and the formula is fairly nice. I wouldn't pay full price for this though, as I do feel like there are better mascaras out there for that price.

BM Beauty Summer Warmth Bronzer
Full size: £8 for 4g / Sample size: 1g (worth £2 approx.)
Yet another disappointing sample - it isn't looking good, is it? This bronzer is far too dark, orange, messy and shimmery for my pale skin, so I definitely won't be using it as a bronzer! I will probably use it from time to time as an eyeshadow or a highlight on my collarbone when I have a tan, though. I definitely wouldn't spend £8 on the full size!

Dermalogica Clean Start 3 Step Day and Night Kit
Full size: £12 for 3 x 50ml
Finally! A sample I'm happy with! I had actually been looking at this kit because I thought the products looked great, so I was so pleased to get this. It includes a 50ml cleanser, toner (which is a cool spray!) and moisturiser (with SPF15 - bonus!) for combination skin like mine. I am actually saving this kit for when I'm staying with my friend in a few weeks so I don't have to carry all my bottles on the train, and I have high hopes for it. If it is good, it is definitely something I would consider buying. This product definitely redeems the overall shoddiness of the rest of the box!

Vichy Dermablend Ultra-Corrective Foundation Cream Stick
Full size: £19 for 12g / Sample size: 6g (worth £9.50 approx)
This is a nice little sample which includes 6 different shades of the Vichy Dermablend foundation. I would have been happier with this if I had skin which needed to be covered up and camouflaged, but my skin is fairly clear and even, so it really isn't much use to me. I am going to keep it in my makeup kit to cover the occasional blemish, or if my normal undereye concealer just doesn't cut it after a particularly heavy night out (ha ha!) but other than that I'm a little underwhelmed with it.

Overall worth: £43.20 approx.
Overall thoughts: Unimpressive box, but I do love the Dermalogica kit
