My Little Box – June 2015

My Little Box – June 2015

Sorry this review of June’s My Little Box is a bit late, but I have an admission… I was so disappointed with the contents of this one that immediately after I’d opened it and seen what was inside I just put the lid back on and left it under my dressing table and didn’t open it again for a couple of weeks. Sadly the last couple of boxes have been disappointing for me, ever since The April ‘My Little Dreambox’ simply blew me away (I reviewed it here). The theme of June’s box was ‘My Little French Riviera Box’, I’m thinking that the boxes that have themes based on a location have been the ones that I haven’t enjoyed as much (last month’s box theme was Provence). If you’ve never heard of My Little Box it’s a quirky monthly beauty box that offers something a bit different, including their own range of make-up ‘My Little Beauty’, a proper readable mini magazine in each box, plus exciting little non-beauty extras – past examples...

Monu – Hydrating Moisturiser SPF15

Monu – Hydrating Moisturiser SPF15

This Hydrating Moisturiser SPF15 from ethical skincare brand Monu was in my June Glossybox. This is the first product from Monu that I have tried and I have been pleasantly surprised. Monu is an ethical skincare brand, they are against animal testing and their products contain no synthetic perfumes or colours. This Hydrating Moisturiser SPF15 is suitable for all skin types and contains zinc oxide for sun protection, plus antioxidant vitamin E, and is paraben free. First things first, as the product is quite thick it is really difficult to get it out of the bottle! No amount of shaking will dispense the moisturiser, and after a big squeeze of the bottle you are left with a huge blob of moisturiser too big for use on just one face. However, this is just a sample size bottle for Glossybox distribution, and I do believe that the full size version of this product has a pump dispenser. Despite the Monu Hydrating Moisturiser SPF15 being quite thick it does sink into...

Glossybox – June 2013

Glossybox – June 2013

My June Glossybox is here! The theme of this one is ‘Summer Looks’ and it is quite make-up focused with some good full-sized products. I really do get excited when I am opening my Glossybox, I love taking off the lid, untying the ribbon and peeling back the tissue paper to find out what is nestled inside! The first item is a full-sized 25ml John Frieda Frizz-Ease Original Hair Serum which retails at £6.29. I use this product all the time to tame my frizzy hair, so whilst it’s not particulary new and exciting it is well received! The second product is a full-sized Eye Inspire Mono Eyeshadow in Mirage from affordable boutique make-up brand Me Me Me, which retails at £4.99. It is a lovely shimmery coffee brown colour and I think this will work really nicely as an accent colour on the eyes. The third product is another full-sized make-up product, a Waterproof Protective Lip Liner pencil in shade 4 from Helen E priced at £8. I have tried Helen...
