Glossy Box - July 2013 | Seaside Splash!


Alterna Haircare - Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist
Glossybox says...
'Your perfect "seaside Splash" summer companion! Forget perfectly primped hair, and instead opt for effortly tousled, "just-back-from-the=beach! waves with this weightless mist. Adds texture, volume and healthy shine to all hair types.
  I have to say I'm not a fan of texture/sea salt sprays, but I will give it a go. I will probably try it out when my hairs curled instead of it's natural straight. I'm easily turned so there is hope for it yet!
Coola Organic Suncare Collection - Coola Mineral Face SPF 20 Unscented
Glossybox says...
'We love this tough but gentle multi-tasker. Coola Organic's suncare collection is hypoallergenic, free of parabens and packed with antioxidants. it provides complete UVA/UVB protection and fights free radicals, while soothing, toning and minimizing pores. Organic Acai oil delivers powerful anti-ageing benefits, while organic evening primrose and linseed oils reduce inflammation and balance moisture.'
  If only we had had this box last month when I was on holiday,  I could have put this to good use. If I'm completely honest suncream is lost on me, I always go for the cheapest option as I don't tend to spend long periods of time in the sun, so the £29.99 for 50ml price tag is a little steep. Having said that there do seem to be a lot of benefits to this cream looks like it's only missing is a tint to be perfect. Hopefully the weather will continue to be this glorious in the UK so I can use it! 
Ciaté london - Paint Pot in Island Hopping
Glossybox says...
'We're excited to feature one of out all-time favourite nail brands, Ciaté. With a range of on-trend summer shades, you'll be hitting the beach in style, Ciaté's wide range of amazingly pigmented and long-lasting shades guarantees a flawless, even finish every time. The Cherry on top? We can't get enough of the iconic satin bow gracing each beautifully designed bottle.
   If you have read my past Glossybox posts you will know I love to get nail varnish in a beauty box and this on is no different especially when I saw the colour it's perfect for Summer and even more so for Autumn I can't await to get it on my toes!!
Inecto pure Coconut - Refreshing Dry Shampoo
Glossybox says...
'Looking for a quick pick-me-up on your way from the beach to the bar? Inecto's Coconut dry shampoo instantly refreshes hair between washes, adding body and texture, and- most importantly - leaving your hair smelling irresistibly fresh and exotic. Beauty insider: Did you know that coconut oil has been used as an effective hair and skincare beauty treatment for centuries? It rejuvenates both hair and skin thanks to the rich active properties found in the oil.'
   I love dry shampoo's, I use it all the time and like many others I'm sure Batiste has been the number 1 but I'm always looking for an alternative so I look forward to giving it a go.
ILA Spa - Face Oil for Glowing Radiance
Glossybox Says...
'Winner of Harpers Bazaar Hot 100, ila's face oil has become a cult product worldwide and has been named 'a little miracle' by celebrity make-up artists. It's easy to see why! Argan oil and rosehip seed oil are high in anti-oxidants, repairing skin cells while combating premature ageing. You will soon notice a healthy glow to your face with a visibly improved texture and radiance.'
   I love face oils so I am always up for giving new ones a go, however I'm not sure it will matter if this is a miracle oil or not, the £75.00 for 30ml price tag means I would never be able to justify  re-purchasing it!
