Favourite Glossy Box by far - Seaside Splash July 2013

The second I saw the design to this months Glossy Box I knew I was going to like it. This months theme is 'Seaside Splash' which is quite apt for this heat wave we seem to be having in the UK at the moment. How stunning is this box?

The second I saw the Anatomicals 'Spray misty for me' facial spritz I was all up on it, spraying my parched face (so hot, so hot) its so refreshing, I love the spray itself as it gives a perfectly even mist, I hate when it shoots me in the face like a water pistol, so thumbs up right away. I really like the smell, its quite clean smelling, which adds to the 'refreshing factor'. It's packed full of ingredients including peppermint, rose, lavender, aloe and witch hazel. Compared to other face spritzes on the market, this is not a bad price at £6, to some they are glorified waters, but for those that like that this is a good choice I think.

Next up was Alterna Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist, If you follow me on Youtube or Instagram you will know I Love curly hair, don't think I've had it straight for months in fact. I dabbled with some salt sprays on holiday and need to try out some more, cannot wait to try this. Full size 125ml for £23.

I am so looking forward to trying the Coola Mineral Face SPF 20 Rose essence tint. I love natural beauty and am a huge advocate of wearing SPF, so this was perfect! it has all sorts of goodies in this promising to be anti-aging, pore minimising, as well as smoothing and toning the skin. When blended out this this is so sheer and matches my skin perfectly. There isnt an overwhelming smell either, so pleasant for everyone really. Full size 50ml for £29.99.

Oh how I do love serums, I prefer them to moisturisers as i always think if the serum is good, then it doesn't matter what cream you put on top. The Pukka Ayurvedic Organic Radiance Serum is the second organic product in this box, enriched with aloe vera and manuka honey promising to leave skin feeling fresh and bright. It has all sorts of other ingredients promising to revitalise, restore, tone and brighten etc etc. All the promises aside it it very lightweight and blends straight in, we will see if I have the face of a toddler after I've tried it all! Full size 50ml for £32. 

Yay Ciate! I dont have anywhere near me that sells these so i was beyond thrilled to find this little beauty. its a brand ive wanted to try as ive heard such great things plus the fact it is beautiful and i am a bit of a polish hoarder these days. I don't have a red like this, which is a bonus, i got Ciate Nail Polish in Mistress, aptly named. Cannot wait to try this colour, its such a classic. Full size 13.5ml for £9. 

Overall I am so impressed with this box, I know its not for everyone, as usually is the case, but I will use everything in this box.

What did you get in your Glossy Box or other Beauty Boxes this month? 


  1. I got the anatomical's spray, Coola face spf, bamboo wave spray, Essie nail stickers and 2 sleek pout paints, 1 blue, 1 pink. I'm happy with my box this month also, and the design is so lovely. :)
