June 2014 Stars and Stripes Glossybox Review!

It's Glossybox time people! This is going to sound weird, but I was excited for the box mainly for the actual box itself. The stars and stripes design is so perfect for summer and eye catching. Yeah, I know it's odd to be excited by a box, but I actually upcycle my Glossyboxes as storage so this will look so cool somewhere in my house. The theme this month is Stars and Stripes which I think is pretty cool. I love sampling products from all around the world, but I also enjoy trying and supporting some brands from the US that I may never have heard of otherwise.

June 2014 Glossybox

StrangeBeautiful Library of Color Colorbloc Nail Polish Duo (Full Size)
I know that people have been complaining online that Glossybox gives too many nail polishes, but as a nail polish junkie I love it! This duo includes both a red and blue polish that look cute by themselves or combined with a white polish to make a fun patriotic nail art look  for the 4th of July.

Rusk Texture Dry Finishing Spray (Sample Size)
Oh boy, was I excited to see this finishing spray in my box. I love finding new ways to add texture to my shorter hair and this looks like something I can use on days when I want to give my hair a break from sea salt sprays that tend to be drying.

Sumita Beauty Eyeshadow Pencil in Champagne (Full Size)
A champagne eyeshadow pencil? Sign me up! I'm a huge fan of Sumita Beauty and eyeshadow pencils so this is a match made in heaven. I did a quick swatch of this, and the formulation seems buttery and the shade is so flattering.

Ayres Patagonia Body Butter (Sample Size)
How adorable is this little pot! I can always use a new body butter so this was a welcomed sample. Ayres is a brand I am not familiar with so I am interested to see how this works.

Camille Beckmen Platinume Gold Imperial Repair Hand Therapy (Full Size)
Wow, Glossybox is keeping me well stocked with hand creams! I have never heard of this brand before so I'm eager to try it. Complete side note, how gorgeous is the packaging?! I love when companies put a lot of thought and effort into quality packaging.

NIOXIN Diamax Hair Thickener (Full Size/Using Coupon Code)
I was able to get this product for free using a coupon code when I renewed my subscription. I don't really need a thickening treatment, but I could see this coming in handy when I want to give myself a blowout for some extra volume. Also, how could I pass up a free product?!

C Wonder Mystery Gift Card
This is easily the most exciting part of the box. Everyone received a mystery gift card in their box that could be valued between $5-500! How cool would it be to have the $500 card?! I have no clue what the value of mine is, but I can't wait to find out.

Overall Thoughts
Once again, I am happy with my Glossybox. There was a nice mix of full size and deluxe samples where I really felt like I got my money's worth. I am excited to try everything I receive and am happy with the variety of products included. My favorites have to be the texture spray and eyeshadow pencil. I cannot wait for next month's box, and have already started looking for spoilers.
