 June GlossyBox review:

This months theme is Summer looks, which seems appropriate as we've finally had some sunshine! 

To be honest I'm not sure that my box goes with the theme very well...

Here's my box:

As usual I'll talk you through the items in the order of which I found them to be the most exciting! 

Firstly I had a Figs & Rouge Coco Rose nourishing and soothing multi-purpose lipbalm. Having received a little Figs and Rouge tin in a previous Glossy Box and loved it I was excited to see this! Although it doesn't give any colour to my lips it has a nice sheen and is really moisturising! Plus how cute is the flamingo packaging?! It screams summer! 
Full Size 12.5ml £5.00

Next is the Monu Facial wash. Whilst not being overly exciting it is a practical everyday type item-which Although, I love my regular cleanser I will give this a chance! Slightly worrying that the seal was broken when I got it out of the box though! It's also nice to know that I got more than the price of the box and p+p with this one item-bargain! 
Full size 100ml £15.95

MEMEME Cosmetics long lasting nail gloss. In shade 66-innocent. 
Now you all know how I love my nail polish, so I'm always happy to receive one in a glossybox. However as the box is a summer edition, the polish being a milky/nude shade with a sheer finish isn't exactly a shade I would wear to the beach! To me summer is all about the brights and being a little more adventurous with different shades, than perhaps you're used to! however I think it will make a nice shade for a french mani.
Full size 12ml £5.00

Helen E cosmetics Eye pencil with smudger in Brown!! 
Brown-really?? Well doesn't that just scream summer! Haha. I think I will try this in the winter months. I might have been more excited by this had I not have had an email from GlossyBox with an offer for one of these eyeliners a while back. (long story short they sent me the wrong colour-they were amazing and instantly sent out the correct shade.) So I now have three of these eyeliners, I will try to do a review soon. They are nice and creamy, yet solid enough to get a nice precise line and the smudger is great for softening the look for a more smoky eye.
Full size 1.5g £8

Finally (i'm biased as I hate receiving hair products!) John Frieda sheer blonde everlasting blonde Shampoo and conditioner, which for me was the let down of the box. However it did mean that I got an extra item! I may try this at some point, but my hair is so temperamental that when I find something that works, I tend to stick to it!
These are 50ml samples and are apprx £1.17 each 

Actually This was quite a good box, Just slightly unlucky in the fact that some of the items aren't really me. However I'm more than pleased with the value and sizes of the items-4 of which were full size and the total value is over £36.00! Not bad eh?! 

Did you get any different items or perhaps more summery colours??
