Glossybox ~ June, 2012

Hello all! Happy Friday! I, for one, am excited that this week is finally over. I've been so burned-out lately that I'm going to a spa tomorrow for a manicure and pedicure (my very first pedicure!). I haven't gotten a manicure in years, so I'm stoked.

Anyway, when I heard GLOSSYBOX was available in the US, I couldn't wait to subscribe! Christine (starryeyedbeauty) was always satisfied with her boxes and since I was always underwhelmed with my MyGlam bags, I figured this was a good way to go.

 This box is adorable! I'm honestly surprised I remembered to take a picture of it before I ripped it open.

GLOSSY Mag... which I haven't even looked at.

The quality of the box is amazing! I think I'll save it, so I can use it as a giftbox in the future.

I love how everything was so nicely wrapped and packaged.

The theme of June is Summer Simplicity.

As the weather heats up and you head to the beach, it's time to get back to the basics and let your natural skin glow. This month's GLOSSYBOX allows you to do so; treat yourself to lush products that will revitalize your face, pamper the body, and enrich your locks and add a luxurious aroma of summer notes. With your natural beauty restored, all you'll need to worry about is which bikini to wear.
