The first thing that caught my eye when I opened the box was the bright pink nail polish from Orly in Berry Blast. I own several hot pink polishes but none quite like this one as it has a very pretty purple iridescence. It did take about three coats to get it as opaque as I like which is fine, next time I'll use a white base to make the color really pop.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara but because I am currently obsessed with the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara I ignored the hype. Needless to say, I've worn it several times and I understand what all the fuss is about. It lengthens and volumes without being clumpy which means you can serve some real lash drama. My favorite thing about this mascara is that it's great for a day to evening look because it layers beautifully. My least favorite thing about this mascara is that it starts to flake by the middle to end of the day and based on that alone, I don't think I will purchase the full size.
I very rarely use lip plumping products but I am definitely not opposed to doing so and I actually really enjoy the Buxom Lip Polishes. Needless to say, I was excited to use the City Lips Advanced Formula Lip Plumping Treatment that came in the June Glossybox. I immediately noticed that it has what I would describe as a cocoa chemically smell and if you are someone who is sensitive to scents then you won't like this. That said, the lip product works really well without the usual tingling sensation you would expect. It can be worn during the day but as suggested on the packaging, it should be more effective and more easily absorbed when used as a nighttime treatment. I have only used it during the day but I will give it a go as nighttime treatment and report back.
The last two items in the box are skincare items and I'm always a little hesitant to introduce new products to my routine. I found a lot of great reviews for The Aloe Source Jojoba Radiance Cleansing Polish and I decided I would try it. I've tried it twice and my skin didn't feel tight or dry at all and I didn't have any adverse reactions. I don't prefer cleansers with micro beads but I do like that this one is sulfate-free and feels very gentle.
As for the Etre Belle Aloe Vera Moisturizing Gel, many of the reviews mentioned that it was a very refreshing and hydrating product which to me seems perfect for the summer months. I did a patch test and it was fine but I have not used it all over my face. I am going to give a try and I'll report back
Let me know if you want a more in depth review on any of these items and please share with me what you received in your June Glossybox.
