Glossy Box July 2012 Contents Review!

July’s Glossybox is all about festival beauty and products which are easy to use on the go.  Read on to see what I received in my box!

GLOSSY BOX JULY
glossybox 006

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil – I was very excited about this product in particular when I opened my box.  I have wanted to try Nuxe products for a long time and in particular this dry oil, which is a multi-use product.  You all know that I like a product which can be used for multiple purposes so this is perfect for me – I’ve already used it as a body moisturizer and am looking forward to using it on my hair too when I get time (as either a serum or a mask overnight for a deep treatment).  I have the worst flu at the moment and can’t smell a thing but from what I can sniff out, it smells pleasant!

Jelly Pong Pong Irish Cream Pavlova Lip Frosting – Although the packaging of this product looks really cheap, the full size of this is actually £10.  The first thing I did notice about this was the smell – even though I have got a blocked nose, I instantly smelt how sugary and sweet this is, which I love.  I am a big fan of sickly sweet scents in lip glosses so this is lovely.  The colour I have is almost a neon pink with the slightest hint of coral.  I like how you can also use this as a cheek colour – another nice multiuse product for when you’re on the go.

Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Moisture Mist – This product really baffled me at first!  I thought Paul Mitchell only made hair products but after researching this I found out that you can also use it on your skin.  This hydrates and moisturizes your skin and helps you revitalise hair styles.  This is a great sized sample so you can really try this out to see what you think.

Monu Night Renewel Complex – I have used a few Monu products in the past and have really enjoyed using them (their body creams are gorgeous) so I am looking forward to testing this out!

Bex SE1 London Urban EDT – As I mentioned earlier, I can not smell a thing, so please do not rely on my judgement of this perfume, but when I first sprayed it I was hit by a mint fragrance, which then transformed to smell a lot like my dentists office.  I will try this again when I am less bunged up and I will hopefully find that it does not leave me smelling like a dentist.

What I Think – I should probably start off by saying that I was sent the wrong product card in my box, so when I read that there was another HD Brows Palette in my box I nearly fainted with delight, only to find there wasn’t one in there!  The other box does look SUPERB – also containing a Clynol Colour Shampoo (probably one my top five shampoos, it is incredible) as well as tan enhancing Monu product, an Elizabeth Arden SPF Lotion and the Jelly Pong Pong Lip Frosting. 
After getting over the fact that I wasn’t the proud owner of a Clynol sample sized shampoo and another HD palette (mine is getting used up fast!) then I realised that I the box I received is good and I love all the multiuse products in it.  I’m really looking forward to taking them away with me next weekend (on a trip to Manchester and Edinburgh to see Morrissey in concert!) and putting them up to the test!

What did you receive in your July Glossy Box?  What is your favourite multiuse product?
