It's time for you guy's to see what I thought about July's Glossybox, and I must say it is a good one this month.
I mean just look at those goodies.

The box came in the usual pink packaging as it wasn't a special edition, but it still looks pretty!!

 So this months box came included with a recipe for courgette & brown rice spaghetti. This recipe is from the Eat Beautiful (Nourish your skin from the inside out) book, which is by Wendy Rowe.
You can pick this up here
I have to say this looks so tasty but I just haven't found the time to do this yet. I'm a little bit lazy when it comes to cooking. Although if I get myself motivated I actually quite enjoy cooking different things, so I must try this soon!!

Ok, so onto beauty products, The first little gem I picked out is the Hawaiian Tropic Lip gloss. Now I always say that I dislike a lip gloss, but this is more of a moisturising lip balm that has the texture of a lip gloss apart from it doesn't have that stickiness to it. It lasts for a long time on the lips and it feels like it is working into the skin on my lips leaving them super hydrated. This helps protect from UV as well so its perfect for talking on holidays, or even here in the UK as we have had some beautiful sunshine in the past couple of weeks!
This also smells and taste's great, its berry flavour which I love. The only thing I will say is if you are after a little bit of colour from a lip gloss, unfortunately this doesn't offer that, but it is still a lovely product.

This next makeup product is the Icona Milano Mascara, this claims to be water proof, humidity and sweat resistant. I wasn't too sure about the mascara as I am quite picky because I tend to get panda eyes quite often. However so far I'm impressed with it as it hasn't smudged under my eyes. It is a very buildable product and you can gain really thick voluminous lashes if you apply a good couple of coats.
They say you only need to use a basic eye remover to take this off and I must agree because I just used my simple (the brand) eye make up remover and it took all of the mascara off.

Next up is the Blank Canvas F20 Buffer brush in hot pink. I just love receiving a make up brush in a glossy box. A girl can never have too many brushes! This brush is just beautiful to look at and sits lovely within my brush collection.

This brush is made with synthetic fibres, which makes it great for applying foundation weather it's liquid, cream or powder, it helps blend products into the skin leaving a flawless finish. The brush feels super soft onto the skin too. You only need to use a light hand with this brush. It really does feel like a good quality brush with the thick handle and dense fibres its really worth spending some money on this one as its not too badly priced.

Ok, so next up I picked out the Hairon De Tangle brush. Ive wanted to pick one of these up for a while but I didn't fancy paying the prices I was seeing them at in boots. So when I received one in July's box I was so happy.

So this is pretty much like the Tangle Teezers, (very similar to be honest). Its designed to be used with wet/dry hair, making it a less painful way to brush through those dreaded knots in your hair. If you have thick hair like myself you'll know its not a nice experience. As a child I always used to ask my dad to brush my hair as he was gentle where as my mum used to be so rough and I would be in pain towards the end. (It used to put me off brushing my own hair).
This is the perfect size for fitting into the palm of your hand and its easy to carry around in your handbag because its so dinky!
Only downside is that it doesn't have a cap to put over it, just to protect the bristles from getting caught in anything or snapping, but that's all.

Lastly is the Utan & tone nourishing night crème. Now I will be honest I haven't actually tried this yet. Only reason is I've got a little bit of a fear that I will apply this as it says, but wake in the morning with a slightly brown face. The fact that I have to go to work the next morning I might not have time to fix this. So I am waiting for a time when I'm off work and I can do a good review of this.

It's designed to give you face a holiday glow and gradual tan over night, but also helping repair and protect the skin. It is full of antioxidant's and vitamin C, so lots goodness.

So that is everything from July's Glossybox, I really enjoyed this box a good mix of different products.
