Glossybox July 2014 Review & Unboxing

Well, this is interesting! It appears that the Glossybox July 2014 Spoilers that members received via email weren’t entirely accurate. I assume that something came up RE: distribution and that’s why we didn’t receive products from Nailgirls London or The Aloe Source. While I was really interested in the nail polish, I have to say that I’m honestly not upset about this development: I absolutely love all the products that I ended up receiving!

July 2014 Glossybox

First of all, apologies for the washed-out look of all the images. It’s overcast and my Kindle Fire’s camera really doesn’t do well with anything but the natural light of a sunny day! I tried to balance the colors so that they look closer to how they are IRL, but you can tell that everything still looks a tad ghostly. Sorry!

As always, the Glossybox comes in cute pink boxes with tissue-and-confetti packaging, topped up with a pretty ribbon. Part of the appeal of these boxes is the care they put into their packaging, it always feels like you’re opening a beautiful gift!

Unboxed July 2014 GLOSSYBOX

As you can see, this month it was a makeup-free box. I think that’s a refreshing change, since to be honest – I can only use so many eyeliners at a time, you know! I personally find that when the boxes feature more skincare, body care, and hair care items, I tend to be happier overall. I like playing with makeup and all, but skincare stuff is my first love when it comes to beauty.

Glossybox July 2014 Spoilers

Glossybox released some “spoilers” about what will be in the July 2014 box:

Namely, we’ll be getting a generous mini-sized version of one of those much-hyped GLAMGLOW masks; specifically, the Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment. I’ve actually only recently tried the brand for the first time – I got a nice VIB sample size of their Supermud Clearing Treatment – and to be honest, I wasn’t all that blown away. I’ll do a proper review of it soon, after I’ve used it more than once, so I’ll save my detailed thoughts for that post.

The “Tinglexfoliate” treatment, which is what we’re getting in the July box, seems to be the recipient of many more glowing (no pun intended) reviews than the Supermud variation, so I’m interested to see if it lives up to the hype in a way that the Supermud didn’t.

Other, minor details have also been revealed for the July GLOSSYBOX: we’ll be getting products from SkinInc, MALIN+GOETZ, The Aloe Source, Nail Girls, and Philip B.

I’m fairly certain that I’ve received The Aloe Source products in previous boxes, but I don’t think I’ve gotten around to trying them out yet. The other brands will be new to me overall – I’ve surely heard of Philip B. and MALIN+GOETZ, but I’ve not yet had the chance to actually use anything they produce.

Of course, I’m already browsing the Nail Girls website and looking at all the pretty colors – they’ve got a huge amount of deliciously juicy-looking melons and corals that I’d love for the summer. I’m personally lemming Orange Blush, Sweet Melon, Nude Caramel, Rose Quartz & Diamonds, Bubblegum Cream, Lively Lilac Punch… needless to say, this looks like a really promising brand to me! What colors are you guys hoping to see in this box? Do the GLOSSYBOX July 2014 Spoilers have you excited for the new box?

If you’re interested in trying Glossybox, new subscribers can get a free Ciate nail polish by entering the code “CIATE” when they sign up. I got a gorgeous Ciate polish in a past box (Beach Hut, a really pretty orangey-bronze shimmer) and I was really impressed by it, so this is a pretty good code IMO!
