Glossybox French Riviera Box

For the June edition, Glossybox takes on a French Riviera theme and it, they bring to you the most perfect summer essentials.  As we are lucky enough to bask in a few days of sunshine here in the UK, this box could not have arrived at a better time, even if you are not lucky enough to be heading off somewhere hot on your holidays.

First out of the box this month from Laritzy Cosmetics, a brand that has appeared in a few beauty boxes of late is a product called Shade Stix (Full-Size £18). Laritzy is a French-Canadian brand who pride themselves on being cruelty-free and this product is described as being a bit of a multi-tasker.

Said to make the perfect bronzer, it has a buildable cream formula which is highly pigmented and long lasting. To use, you simply swipe it across where you want it to go and then blend with either your fingers or a beauty blender.  For me, it is a little too dark for my skin tone, but I was pleasantly surprised at how lightweight it felt on the skin.

Up next is the Novex Mystic Black Deep Hair Mask (100ml) and this is the product which I was most looking forward to seeing because I am so intrigued by it.  Described as being a mask which will leave your hair feeling hydrated, free of frizz and tangles.

Free of parabens, silicones and sulphates, this mask is enriched with baobab oil which helps provide intense hydration for the hair.  I am quite looking forward to giving this a try as it is suitable for all hair types. You can find this mask here from allbeauty.com


Up next is the Nip + Fab Glycolic Scrub Fix (50ml). Described as being a 3-in1 micro-exfoliant, it contains 3% Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid and fine grains to ensure your skin is left refined and brightened.

This scrub works deep into your pores to cleanse, polish, slough away dead skin cells and help reduce blemishes. With its zesty grapefruit scent, it is should leave your skin feeling smoothed and energised.

Next up is the SkinEye Cool Gel from Monu (Full-Size RRP £24.95) and it is described as being a refreshing gel that instantly restores hydration and refreshes the sensitive eye area. Monu is a brand I've got to know through Glossybox as it has featured quite regularly and I am yet to find a product I dislike.

SkinEye Cool Gel contains a unique blend of Arnica, Vitamin C, Sodium Hyaluronate and Ginseng which come together and work to effectively reduce puffiness and dark circles under the eye whilst lifting, plumping and correcting skin tone for a fresh, flawless look. Delivering immediate results, the Eye Cool Gel is an all-around miracle, leaving eyes brighter and skin rejuvenated. With products like this, I would also put them in the fridge for around 30 minutes before using them as an extra treat.


Finally, in this months box, we have the Gatineau Firming Throat Gel (50ml). I have used products from Gatineau a few times now but this is a new one for me. Described as being a lightweight, rapidly absorbing gel, it works to address the appearance of skin slackening, refines the skin’s texture and helps firm facial contours. 
Enriched with Wheat Proteins which provide an immediate tightening effect, Pentavitin which intensively moisturises the skin, Sunflower Oil which helps to regenerate the skin and Vitamins A, E and F which nourish and protect against free radicals. I am quite intrigued by this and am looking forward to see whether or not it does work.

I really liked this months box, there are some new and some not so new discoveries for me this month and some products that I can put to one side for when I go to Disneyland Paris later this year. 

To add to the excitement of your box arriving, Glossybox has partnered with leading haircare brand Remington to secretly include exclusive Golden Tickets inside 5 lucky Glossyboxes. Those lucky enough to receive a golden ticket will win 1 of 5 ProLuxe hair tools from the Remington Range.

  1. I'm afraid this month's items just don't appeal to me. Although I have loved most of the Gatineau products I've tried in the past.
