Let the sun shine

Summer is meant to be on the way but if you’re in the UK like me you’ll have been wondering if it’s going to come at all! We’ve had a very typical English spring with lots of April showers but this Glossybox has definitely perked me up with its “Let the Sun Shine” theme. I’ve got to mention the packaging this month which is beautiful and features a foiled box and ombré tissue and looked so pretty when I unwrapped it.

Five items are included this month and four of them are full size which is amazing value. First we have a Minetan Rapid Recovery After Sun Gel which is a deluxe mini size and has the classic after sun ingredient aloe Vera but also Niacinamide to help with any damage caused by the sun and giving an anti inflammatory response.

Deluxe mini 50ml £13.35

Next is one of my favourite makeup brands Ciate London with their Gold definer liner. This is a really beautiful champagne gold colour and glides onto the skin. It has a built in sharpener in the lid which I also love as no fiddling about looking for a sharpener before you’re headed out!

Now we have our sneak peek for last month which is the Rodial Dragons blood eye masks. These are gel eye masks with hyaluronic acid to dry-puff and give you bright eyes. I love eye masks to help with more hydrated Under-eyes so this is perfect for me.

Full size £6

Next is the perfect partner for our eye liner and it’s a Power Foil eyeshadow from Lottie London. I’ve used these before and the coverage for a metallic shadow is just amazing. I only did one swipe in this picture and you can see how pigmented it is. I love this as a summer look especially paired with the gold liner !

Lastly we have a lemonshower gel from Kueshi which is infused with camomile extract as well as lemon. I love the scent of this it smells so fresh and summery. It’s a nice one to include in the box.

Full size £5.70

Overall I really enjoyed this box, the theme has been really well thought out and I’m looking forward to playing with those makeup products! The total value of this months products was £50 – great value for money.

June’s sneak peek is a Nip+Fab Vitamin C scrub which sounds really nice. I just attended the Glamour Big Beauty Call and Vitamin C was talked about a lot by the skincare experts as something pretty much everyone can incorporate into their routine and see brightening effects from.

The box theme for June is “Dreaming of Paradise” I’m definitely excited to see what else will be included! Last June was a really great summer theme with bronzer and some themed face masks so interested to see how they theme it this time. What did you think of Mays box?

I have a yearly subscription to Glossybox which costs 11.75 per month including postage and packaging. There are loads of different options if you wanted to sign up from a monthly rolling subscription to 3, 6 and 12 month plans like the one I do. I do have a referral code if you click here which will get you 20% off your first box.
