This box is sooo fancy! I’m loving the tropical design!
The product info card is now a pamphlet with exclusive offers and product details.

July’s Theme is Tropical Beauty #TROPICAL BEAUTY

They say it’s not about the destination, but about the journey. This month, we’re taking you on an exotic trip with our Tropical Beauty box! We wanted to capture the essence of summer with a sun-sational box design that immediately brings to mind an inspiring island getaway. This beautiful box is just as gorgeous inside, as it comes jam packed with beach-friendly goodies meant to cleanse, soothe and enhance. Also, because good things come to those who wait, GLOSSYBOX is proud to announce that makeup masters at Doucce Cosmetics have created an exclusive, personalizable face palette just for our Glossy community of beauty lovers. 

This box seems to definitely fit the theme of “Tropical Beauty”. Subscribers received one of four different designs and I LOVE the one I received! 
First look!

DOUCCE X GLOSSYBOX Blush Duo Palette: FREEMATIC SMALL CASE ($10 US) / ONE PIECE FREEMATIC BLUSH MONO ($14 US)Hand-selected for you by our Glossy color experts, this limited-edition Blush Duo is a fashionista’s dream. The included Summer Sunset shade in this *oh-so-cute* palette will highlight the apples of your cheeks, leaving behind a soft, sunkissed glow. If you’re wondering why there’s an empty spot, it’s because the complimentary shade that fills the compact is up to you! Log into your GLOSSYBOX account and select a complementary color as to complete your very own one-of-a-kind color combo via your August box. But, move quick! Because this is a limited-edition promotion, quantities are subject to availability.
This adorable little “customizable” product comes with the peachy shade ‘Summer Sunset’. I was wondering why the blush was so small in comparison to the overall palette, but that’s because next month subscribers will be receiving a complementary colour to complete it. I love blush and this shade is gorgeous!

Dr. Paw Paw Multipurpose Soothing Balm – (25ml, $8.40 US)
One of the most talked about balms is here to soothe your skin for the summer! The aloe, olive oil, and Carica Papaya extracts are blended together to create a multi-purpose formula that you can carry with you at all times.
I’ve never heard of the ingredient paw paw, but this multipurpose balm “provides relief for dry irritated skin and dry cracked skin such as hands, heels and elbows and it’s calming properties help with nappy rash, prickly heat, bites and stings and creates the perfect base for makeup”. I actually used this on the weekend to treat my mosquito bites AND as a makeup primer. Perfect for travel as it is such a versatile product!

NCLA Clean Up Your Act ($16 US)
We all make mistakes. Lucky for you NCLA’s precision nail lacquer remover pen is here to help clean up any accidents! Pen includes 3 replacement tips!
I will be gifting this to my Mama - I’m positive she will find it handy as there is no need to use good ol fashioned cotton balls and stinky polish remover.

LA ROCHE-POSAY Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser (15ml, $2.88 US)
Your skin should never feel tight after cleansing! La Roche-Posay’s gentle products remove impurities and reduces excess oil while helping to prevent over drying.
I’ve received La Roche-Posay’s gentle products before and they are gentle yet effective.

Over having dry, damaged hair? This nourishing shampoo and conditioner duo help combat brittle locks with vitamin-packed coconut milk and a healthy pH level.
Mmmm… these smell great! They definitely fit the tropical theme and my hair can use some TLC due to all the Summer Sun it's gotten lately. Perfect size for travel to the lake!

Trifle Cosmetics Lip Parfait in Exotic Fruits – Full Size ($18.95 US)
Wrapped in adorable packaging and infused with cocoa butter, this 100% cruelty-free lipstick keeps lips plumped and glowing with its intense color pigments.
This is a nice peach colour perfect for Summer! It goes on smooth like butter and the colour was long-lasting.

I was pleasantly surprised by this $30 gift card for Hello Fresh that was included in this Month's Glossybox.

The July Glossybox included five products, valued at $74.85 US. The value seems to be average again this month. Three products were full-sized, and the rest were not but they were still good sizes. There was a nice mix of products: hair care, skin care, cosmetics and nail care. Click here to see some of the other products that were available to subscribers in June as each box is only a variation. I’m happy with this month’s box and love the packaging.
