My First GlossyBox - July 2011

Today I finally received my first GlossyBox.

I was so glad to actually get it as I ordered this way back in May but due to the high demand was told that this would be my first box.

I quickly opened it up to find out what was inside and im happy to say, I wasn't disappointed!!

I know what everyone gets varies slightly and I had already had a sneaky peak on a couple of fellow bloggers posts and kind of had an idea what would be inside.

I received:

Ciate Nail Enamel in Mojito - 13.5ml Full Size

Orla Kiely Eau De Parfum - 5ml Mini Size

Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Oil - 100ml Full Size

Ultrasun Face SPF30 -15ml Mini Size

Illamasqua Powdered Metal in Ether - 15g Full Size

I've done a little bit of research in to the prices of these products and know that the Ciate Nail Polish retails at £9.00, the Weleda Body Oil is £19.95 and the Illamasqua Powdered Metal retails at £22.50 so i've definately got my moneys worth with this box with me paying just £10 for it!!
Im so glad that they seemed to have upped their game since the last box, which I didn't get, but I know a lot of fellow bloggers were left disappointed by.

Im looking forward to trying out all of these products, especially the one's i've never heard of like the Weleda Body Oil. (Which really looks like a bottle of medicine to me, does anyone else think so?!)

I've also always wanted to try the Ciate Nail Polishes but was a little disppointed that I got the shade Mojito as im not sure if bright green is really my colour. I know a few of you received a pale pinky colour, I think this would have suited me better but never mind!!

Also the Illamasqua Powdered Metal is my very first Illamasqua product so im quite excited about trying this too!!

I will wait and see what arrives in nexts months GlossyBox but so far, im impressed. I'd be interested to know what everyone else gets in their box.

Have you ordered a GlossyBox yet?! What did you get in yours?!

OMG it is so unfair! I'd love to get your GlossyBox! I'd use all of the products, while I'll have to give some of mine to my mum. Again. :( X

I like your GlossyBox! I laughed when I read your question about the bottle--you're right! I'm glad that this was the first GlossyBox you were sent since you mentioned that others were not so happy with the previous one. I bet that everyone is happy with this! x
