June Glossybox highlights

Konjac sponge
I'm having a great month for Beauty Boxes. I recently posted about the M&S Summer Beauty Box here which has now sold out. No wonder as it was packed full of goodies.
After a couple of "meh" months with my Glossybox subscription, June's was a cracker and every item I know I'm going to use. But there are two stand out items and I have to tell you about them, because they've surprised me at how good they are.

The first is the Konjac Sponge. This facial cleansing sponge is made from the natural fibres of a porous vegetable called Konjac. The konjac is native to Asia - where all great beauty trends originate from. This sponge gently cleanses your skin and you can use it on its on, after soaking in water, or with a cleanser. The sponge is kinder and gentler to skin than a face scrub and so can be used every day. It's also perfect for sensitive skin. I keep this hung up in my shower so it dries naturally and keeps clean. The sponge is £8.99 and can be bought here.

The second item has really taken me by surprise. When I saw the Emite Lip and Cheek Tint and how dark red it was, I thought this was something I would never use. Thankfully I did try it out and even though it does look very dark in the tube, it is the prettiest cheek tint ever. It reminds me of the Benefit Benetint that I used years ago.

Even swatched on my hand this looks scary doesn't it. But it really isn't. I apply a few dabs on to the apples of my cheeks and use my fingers to pat it over the fleshy parts of my cheeks and the tint gives a natural rosy, just been for a brisk walk glow. I love this so much. 

I will definitely be re-purchasing this tint, which is £12.50 from Emite. 



  1. I have an Ecotools sponge that is similar to this which I really like, might give this one a try!
