Beauty boxes unwrapped - July 2013

There's nothing like a July beauty box to remind you just how fast the year is going! This month Glossybox have for a limited edition summer theme, whereas BeauteCo have focused more on haircare and make up:

Infecto pure coconut refreshing dry shampoo
Alterna haircare bamboo style boho waves tousled texture mist
Coola organic face spf20 unscented mineral sunscreen

Over the years, Glossybox have become well known for their limited edition boxes, and this month they couldn't have picked a better theme. I love the turquoise summer seaside design, and product wise, there's a really good variety too. The sunscreen and dry shampoo in particular will come in handy over the next week or so, and the red Ciate nail varnish will look great with a tan and some summer sandals.

Neal & Wolf harmony intensive care treatment
ArtDeco eyeshadow base
Pukka radiance serum
ArtDeco soft kajal liner
Neal & Wolf elevate volumising lotion

BeautyCo on the other hand have gone for more of a quantity over variety approach. There are only 3 brands in this month's box, but with 4 full sized products it's undeniably good value for money. The Neal & wolf intensive hair treatment was an old favourite of mine, and I'm excited to try the Artdeco eyeshadow base too. I don't usually bother with a primer, but in this heat, anything that makes my make up last longer will be a welcome little addition!

Are you a beauty box subscriber? What was your favourite box this month?

  2. I want to try the coconut dry shampoo too!! I get Birchboxes but they just aren't always what I'm looking for. Your Glossyboxes look great, I think I'll have to make the switch!

    1. It certainly seems to be a popular product! It's a shame Birchbox isn't quite what you're looking for. Beauty boxes can vary so much each month. Fingers crossed you'll like the next one more x
