It's Glossybox time again, getting this little box of treats has made coming back to England not so heartbreaking. I've decided to just do a little first thoughts posts on this one as I just felt like I already had a lot to say about it. 
Glossybox - Serie Exclusiv Pro Beauty Brush  RRP £15  I liked the little black branded mirror in last months box and I like this little brush too. It's a cute little size and it quite a bit shorter than my other brushes so I think this would be ideal for taking out and about. The bristles are really soft and densely packed in so I think it definitely has lasting ability. I was quite surprised to see an RRP next to this item as I thought the branded beauty bits were kind of zero value but fit nicely in the box - maybe a brand extension into beauty extra's is coming - if it is I think it would be a brilliant idea for them to go into their ranges of brushes and other little bits. 
Yves Rocher France - Mini Mascara ultra-volume sexy pulp  RRP Full Size £16.90 Sample Worth £4.69 I've never heard of the brand before and I'm pretty loyal to L'Oreal Million Lashes but I do love little mini mascara's for night out top ups. I don't like the name at all 'ultra volume sexy pulp' the word pulp just makes me think of the gross fruit that's left after you've made a smoothie. It's a good mascara and offers good coverage to my lashes, I've just stocked up on Benefit Bad Gal Mini Mascara's from Glamour Magazine so I have a lot of mini mascara's right now but this is definitely a cute little addition. 
BM Beauty - Summer Warmth Bronzer  RRP Full Size £8 Sample Worth £2  This is a lovely shade and a soft product - I just can't use loose bronzer, I get it everywhere and the tiny sample pot means I can't really get coverage on a brush without it going everywhere and losing all of the product. For me it's a little pointless sample I'm thinking I can use it as an eye base though as it's a lovely brown for that too if its built up. 
Clean Start by Dermalogica - Day/Night 3-Step Kit  Full Size £12 Kit  I so wish I'd received this before going on holiday as it is perfect for traveling. Dermalogica is always a brand that's on my wish list that I can't afford to buy so I'm so looking forward to trying this little set out. It all smells gorgeous and I love that the toner is a spray dispenser and the moisturier is Matte SPF 15 it is literally perfect for a holiday. 
Vichy - Dermablend Ultra Corrective Foundation Cream Stick  Full Size £19 Sample Worth £8  This in my view is the perfect kind of sample for a skin product. Featuring 6 different shades allows you to try the product whilst also working out what's right for you if you want to purchase it. I have a few horrible marks on my cheek from spots previously so I am looking forward to trying it out on them although I won't need the full size product as it's not an area that bothers me hugely. I love that this has been featured though and I hope more brands offer little samples like this - it would be brilliant to get foundation samples like this so you can really work out which shade to buy from the comfort of your home and in all different lights. 
Overall I really like this box my favorite item by far was the Dermalogica kit and I think its going to make me want to buy the whole full size kit after using it up. I'm a bit skin care mad at the moment, so expect a lot of it other the next few weeks :)  Glossybox, June 2012.
