UNBOXING: Glossybox June 2015*

*Product was provided for review.

As the weather gets hotter and the days longer, I'm feeling a much stronger pull towards traditional summer beauty picks that give me ease and lightness while holding up to the heat. I feel like this is a great time for subscription services because they really put a focus on seasonal picks that make sense for what so many of us are looking for when the weather gets hot and we're spending a lot more time outside. This month's Glossybox* is no exception. This month's box is packed with great picks for summer beauty and on the go ease.

Keep reading to take a look at the goodies that came in my Glossybox this month!

Être Belle Cosmetics Aloe Very Ultra Moisturizing Gel - 1.36oz Sample Size
"For summer-friendly hydration, this lightweight, oil-free hydrator, packed with liposomes, promises a glowing, supple complexion. Also, acting as a skin-plumping primer, the gel formula replenishes skin's moisture content and improves elasticity."

I love aloe, I really do. Some of my absolute favorite products to use in the summer months contain high concentrations of aloe, so I'm definitely happy to give this one a try. I'm particularly drawn to the idea of it as a primer and I think I'll try it out that way first!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara - Deluxe Sample Size
"What's in a name? Everything, according to Too Faced. After setting out to create a truly buildable mascara, the brand introduced this carbon black, collagen-fueled formula, which enhances lashes more and more with every coat. The hourglass shaped brush volumizes and lifts both top and bottom lashes."

I already know that I'm absolutely in love with this particular mascara and very, very excited to have this sample to add to my collection. Admittedly, I already had a backup sample of this, but I will never complain about having backups of mascaras I love. This is a fantastic addition to this bag and one that I think will excite a lot of people!

The Aloe Source Luminosity Masque - 0.25oz Sample Size
"This smoothing gel masque combines pineapple and papaya enzymes to gently exfoliate skin, with aloe very and willow herb extract to simultaneously soothe it, leaving your complexion radiant and more youthful looking."

I love masks and I especially love getting samples of masks to try out - because I'm consistently trying out new and different masks and it's hard to get through a full size tub of even my favorites. I can't wait to try this and see if it accomplishes what it promises. I'm very, very hopeful!

Orly Nail Lacquer in Oh Cabana Boy - Mini Size (Colors will vary)
"Both portable and convenient, these mini polishes are perfect for a summer manicure. Free of DBP, formaldehyde and toluene, and featuring an award-winning gripper cap, Orly is designed to offer both professional formulas and fashion-foward colors born from industry trends."

This polish is a neon pink shimmer and I am beyond excited about it's inclusion. This is just the kind of polish I like to wear on my toes in the summer and I can't wait to rock a pedicure with this shade for the beach. I also have a keen affection for nail polish mini's (since I can never use up a full size polish) so this is a big win for me.

Doucce Blush Brush - Travel Size
"This fluffy kabuki brush can be used with blush and bronzer powder formulas to create a seamless sun-kissed look thanks to a dome-shaped brush head and natural hair fibres."

Isn't this brush adorable? Like the lipstick we received last month, this has beautiful gun-metal packaging that I find super chic and streamlined. It's also a nice little brush that can easily be tossed into a makeup bag for in my purse for blush touch ups through the day. These are natural bristles, so it isn't quite as soft as the synthetics that I tend to use, but it will certainly get the job done in a crunch.

Overall, I think this is a pretty good box. I love that there are brands that I already know and love as well as brands I've never heard of, all with products that are perfect for the summer months and on the go!

Glossybox is a monthly online subscription service that curates boxes filled with 5 samples of various beauty, skin care, and haircare products delivered to your door for $21 a month (Plus $5 shipping for Canadian customers). Each month you'll receive a beautifully packaged box that makes for great reusable beauty storage filled with 5 different products to try out. 

Head on over to Glossybox to get your hands on the June box before they sell out! Alternately, if they do sell out, you can pick up a CLASSIC Glossybox, which contains product favorites from previous boxes!

Thanks for reading!
