Today’s blog post is a special entry. I got the chance to be sent* a GlossyBox and I can’t wait to discover with you all the products inside!
The GlossyBox I received is the July 2013 one, which is titled “Le Grand Bleu“, all focused on summer.
Before going on, I have to specify that this box is the italian GlossyBox and not the UK one. I know that the July UK GlossyBox had different (yet still awesome) products, but here in Italy isn’t available! 😦
Let’s go into details.
The description of the GlossyBox “Le Grand Bleu” states:
Royal Blue, cobalt blue, aquamarine or turquoise: this month we celebrate out edition of “Le Grand Bleu” which isn’t only the latest season trend and the color of the sea, but also marks the beginning of holiday. Wherever it is, sea or lake, dive in with us into the deep blue. We picked up the best products that will make you feel beautiful even during summer holiday. Sunscreen, nutrient and protective creams which won’t lack in your beauty case for this summer.
This month’s must is a sun and sea breeze inspired beauty.
As you can see from the picture, the box itself is blue-themed and it’s in the prettiest turquoise. I think I’m going to use it to bright up my desk or my book shelf. It’s too pretty and summer-y to end up in the dark!
Moreover, I really appreciated the way everything was wrapped. The little bow is so pretty as well as the wrapping paper. The attention to the details is a ten to me!!!

Since I received the box just some days ago I didn’t have the chance to actually try the products, but I surely will in the following days. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can review the items I received.
Coming to my first impressions, I must say that the product I’m most excited to try is the foot gel: I’ve always wanted something like it, but never got the change to go out and actually buy it. The shower gel smells amazingly and I’m almost running out of my usual soap so I’m ready to use this brand new one! I’m still not sure how and if I’ll use the wax since my skin is extremely delicate and instead of wax I’ve always used silk-epil. But, oh well, it could be the chance to start waxing! I’m pretty curious about the Vanilla perfume too and I am super glad I got a 10% discount at Dr. Taffi. I looked online at the website and it really does sell a lot of interesting items! Plus, everything is bio, so..awesome!!! I swatched the lip pencil and I believe it’s way too dark for me, but until I try it on I can’t actually speak my mind! And..no, I didn’t forget about the pretty nail polish, how could I?! Honestly, I can’t wait to put it on. I’m going to do my nails tomorrow and I’ll surely wear it and let you know my opinions soon!
& that is all, girls.
Over all I am very pleased by this month’s box. Now I’m super curious to know what’s inside the future months boxes, eheh!
On a side note, I have to thank Mr. Alberto Botton for being super patient and extremely kind to me. The GlossyBox customer service is excellent, really.
Thanks for reading, girls.
