My Very First GlossyBox

July 2013 Box
***



Firstly.....how GORGEOUS is this box?! I LOVE it! :D
I'm definitely going to have to look up some ideas on how to recycle these babies in to drawers or something because they are far too pretty to sit doing nothing, or worse, go in the bin! Noooo!


Even upon opening the lid i was greeted with even more super prettyness!!!
Swooooon!!! I actually hated disturbing this to get to the goodies inside! haha!
I have to admit i was a bit like a kid at Christmas when i got this and started opening it, its so exciting not knowing what little delights lay inside the box.

When i did my GlossyBox profile i went towards makeup based stuff, so i was kinda surprised that i got hair,skin and nail care but oh well!

So inside my box this month i got ....

ILA Spa Face Oil for glowing radiance -

Product Description

ila Face Oil for Glowing Radiance has become a cult product worldwide and has been named ‘a little miracle’ by celebrity make-up artists. Your skin will rediscover its natural bloom and you will notice a healthy glow to your face. It results in cashmere-soft skin with a visibly improved texture and radiance

Winner of Harper's Bazaar Hot 100
What i thought....
 I used a little of this product on my face after my shower today and I'm not too sure about it. I think i need to use it a few ore times before i can make a real decision on it but it wasn't a bad product. Its literally an oil that you put a few drops off on your face, which when first applied feels greasy. The greasy feeling lasted a good hour but i have combination skin so I'm not sure if that has something to do with that. After it seeped in it did leave my face feeling quite soft and smooth but and it really did leaving me "glowing". So i think that if you can get over the greasy beginning the end is worth it.

You can buy this product from the ila-spa website and the 30ml bottle retails at £75!
I doubt id pay that for it!!! While it is good its not THAT good. If they lower the price by at least half id consider repurchasing.

What i thought....
Quite simply.... i LOVE it!!!
The colour i was given is called Island Hopping and is a reddy orangey colour with fine gold reflective particles in it. Its my new favourite shade! its gorgeous and i don't think my pictures do it justice to be fair. 
You do need two coats but for the payoff its really worth it. Iv had it on all day now and so far no chips. Its glides on really easily and it has a longer than average handle too which i thought really helped. 

I will definitely be buying more!

you can get these from www.ciate.co.uk and they retail at £9 per bottle

 Product Description

Feel rosy without getting too rosy with this natural mineral, sheer SPF 20 sunblock that is sure to keep your delicate facial skin even, hydrated and protected. Rose Extract soothes the skin and the senses with its natural toning and aromatherapy properties. And while combining the super antioxidant and anti-ageing powers of Xylinum Black Tea and Organic Grape Seed Extract, this formula delivers lasting broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and is still light enough to feel perfect under makeup everyday. 70% Certified Organic inactives, 98% Natural. 
What i thought....

At the moment its pouring with rain in the UK so its not the most ideal time to test this product but i tried it out nonetheless.
I can honestly say its the nicest sunblock iv ever used! I usually despise sunblock because of its smell, the ghostly colour it leaves you and how sticky or slimy it is. This product however is none of those things! It has no smell which is great because your not constantly aware of it i that makes sense. It rubs in perfectly, so well that you wouldn't know it was on plus its quite moisturising.
Id purchase this product for myself regardless of the £29.99 price tag!
Its available on amazon but its a slightly different on as its advertised as a rose scented one which isn't the same as mine as mine is unscented. Maybe worth shopping around if you would prefer the unscented or get in touch with the company to see if you can get an unscented one.

What i thought....

Now i cant really make much of an opinion on this product because i haven't tested it on my hair yet as iv just washed it so its not needed. I did however give it a spray though to have a sniff of it and i honestly almost started drooling! I'm a huge fan of coconut scented products anyway so was thrilled at the fact that this is coconut scented. It really is a gorgeous smell! It'd be worth it just for that with a low price of £2.49 too! You can buy this product at amazon too.

Alterna Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist 

Product Description

Get tousled, “just-back-from-the-beach” waves with this weightless mist. Adds texture, volume and healthy shine to all hair types. 

What i thought....
I tested this product out today too after washing my hair and while it did work, its not really suitable for my hair. I have VERY thick, frizzy hair so although this did "tousle" my hair, it just made it look frizzier. If you have fine, non frizzy hair i think you would really like this product though as i can see it giving a lovely tousled look on that kind of hair. It has a really lovely summery scent though which was lovely but was about the only benefit i got from it.
For me i wouldn't consider buying this product though.
You can get this product from www.lookfantastic.com/alterna and it retails at £23.
