June Glossybox ’17

So June’s Glossybox arrived a week or so ago and once again I’m not very impressed. That’s three duds in a row now and I have a ‘three strikes you’re out’ policy with these things so I’ve cancelled my subscription and July will be the last box.
That being said I realised I may as well explain to others what the issues are with some of these products rather than just get cross and refuse to even blog them. So without further ado, the June Glossybox…

Box of Dreams 2 (Caroline Hirons & Cult Beauty)


A few weeks ago I saw that there would be a new Box of Dreams from Caroline Hirons with Cult beauty for Christmas, “Oh I’ll just sign up to the email list and wait and see what the products are” I thought. Dangerous move. As soon as the email came out I couldn’t resist and before I knew it I had entered all my details and received my confirmation.
I don’t regret it for a second though. For starters, buying the box is a 48% saving on buying the items individually, and what a gorgeous box to arrive all for me just before Christmas!
