GLOSSYBOX - August: 'Girls Just Wanna Have Sun'

I know I'm late to the party, but I couldn't not show you this months GLOSSYBOX* - Girls Just Wanna Have Sun. I got home from Iceland to this lil babe waiting for me!

First up, can we just admire the box - I feel like this has quite possible outdone July's edition... maybe just.


I don't know about you, but when the sun does start to shine I want my skin to be glowing and my hair to be shiny, this months box has so many goodies which does just that. Firstly, the (full size) Modellauncher 'Safari Sun Bronzer'. One of the main reasons I love GLOSSYBOX so much is that it introduces to me to so many lovely brands I don't know about! This isn't my usual kinda style, but it's fun and perfect for summer. With a talc free and mineral rich formula, I really cannot complain! 


I'd be lying if I said I've been sticking to my gym routine, but the next product is going to be perfect for when I get back into it! The Sport FX 'Time Out Face Mist + Fix' (RRP £5.99) was designed for those gym bunnies. It works best as a replacement for primer, as it keeps your makeup in place whilst hydrating your skin and controlling oil. If I'm honest, I never wear make up in the gym, it's just my personal preference, but I love the idea of using it as a face mist! The menthol essence within the mist has a cooling effect, and I'm not sure about you but I always leave the gym looking like a huge tomato - so this will come in very handy!


Like I said before, I love my hair to look healthy and shiny during summer time! I normally wash my hair at least 4/5 times a week (this used to be everyday but I've cut down recently). The Valquer Ice Hair Mask can be used once or twice a week instead of your usual conditioner. The macadamia oil hydrates and tames your hair in just 3-5 minutes. Believe me, this works! Since being back from Iceland my hair has had to get used to the hard water here in London, after using the mask I could already feel my hair was less dry! This is a sample (100ml which is a generous sample size) and the full size is worth £14.99 - totally recommend looking at the Valquer brand if you want to improve your hair!

For those days when I don't wash my hair, my go to is to use dry shampoo. I actually already have this exact one but in the larger size! So will be saving this for my upcoming trip to Ibiza. The Batiste 2in1 Dry Shampoo & Conditioner in Vanilla and Passionflower is so good! It smells amazing, refreshes the roots and conditions the lengths.


The final product is one I'm most excited about, the Rodial Suede Lips in the shade Big Apple (RRP £22!?). It actually looks much darker than it is - but it's much more subtle on the lips. The shades goes really well with my skin tone and has a slight shimmer too! It has a matte finish but is also very moisturising as it has added vitamin E, it doesn't feel like it dries out my lips at all!


Not forgetting the added extra.. the PURELEI Aloha bracelet which doubles up as a cute hair band was a treat to find in the bottom of the box. It definitely is more acceptable to have this on my wrist 24/7 compared to my normal hair band accessory! I had a look at their other accessories and kinda fell in love with the make up bags... (so tempted...)



Hope you loved this months box as much as I did! If you haven't already got yourself a GLOSSYBOX, you can get your first box for just £6 here using the code: SUN.

Let me know if you've tried or even have your eye on any of the products in the Girls Just Wanna Have Sun box...
