Quick Fire Review: July Glossybox

Instead of the usual open box style post about Glossybox, I decided to take a little bit of time to trial each product and give a quick opinion. 

So, without further ado. 

Collin Paris Regenerated Collagen Gel: I was really curious about this little product as I have really been enjoying French skincare at the moment. Initially the smell really put me off, it smells exactly the same as a generic liquid soap you find in most public toilets. Once that image was locked in my mind I was less than willing to put it on my face. But to give credit where credit is due, it did leave my skin feeling soft and felt silky smooth. But I simply cannot get over that scent. 

Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Texturizing Sea Spray: I recieved the styling treatment oil in a previous box from the same brand and I absolutely adore it. A complete 180 from the Collin product, the ginger scent is absolute heaven. I'm trying to use less heat on my hair so I enjoyed giving this a go. I'd recommend this if you're not a fan of crispy locks, but fancy some beachy texture. 

Kryolan Satin Powder in SP 333: This has to be my stand out product of the month. Initially I wasn't too impressed as lets face it, I'm never going to rock a bright peach/orange eye. But I've found that it's an absolutely lovely highlight if you've already applied a peach cream blush. Paired with Illamasqua's Emerge, it's a dream. 

Monu Extra Rich Night Cream: I'll be honest, I gave this a night. Simply because I've used Monu in the past, and I don't think it gets on with my skin. I'm really happy with my Origins night cream so I found a better home for it. 

Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Samples: I enjoyed trying these little sachets out and used the cleanser, serum and lotion to mix up my daily routine. It left my skin feeling nice and smooth, but as the sample was so small I can't give you a definitive opinion. It was a nice treat though! 

The round up...what do I think of July's Glossybox. 

I didn't really pack a punch when I opened the box, but for the Kryolan alone it's been a good month! I would think about looking into the Elizabeth Arden further once my current skincare has run out. I'll look forward to seeing what the next month brings! 

*PR Sample, but opinions are my own yo.
