June Glossybox by Lovisa Burfitt

This month's glossybox is my very first 'designer box' by Lovisa Burfitt, a Swedish fashion illustrator. I absolutely love the design of this box. It's very stylish and definitely has more thought put into it than the plain pink boxes. I'm not a big fan of the pink boxes to be honest. Also, instead of five products I got six which altogether is worth over 400kr. 

Naobay - Protective Shampoo&Shower Gel (Org. price 165kr/250ml)

This is a 2-in-1 shampoo and shower gel which is made out of 99% natural ingredients. It has a very citrusy smell which I really like. I was never really interested in trying shampoo and shower gel 2 in 1 as I always thought that it would still leave my hair greasy. I'm really glad I did get to try it out though, as it actually cleans my hair just as well as normal shampoo.

Naked Lips - Organic Lip Balm, Sea Buckthorn (Org. price 42kr/st)

This lip balm has done wonders to my lips. I have never found a lip balm that makes my lips so soft and smooth almost instantly after applying it onto my chapped lips. It smells of oranges which is amazing. It has sea buckthorn oil which is said to have many benefits to the skin. Also, it's 99% ecological and has 100% natural ingredients.

Färg - Eyeliner (Org. price 99kr/st)

I'm not a fan of eyeliner, so don't really have much to say about this product. I will probably give it away to someone who can give it a better home.

Benefit Cosmetics - They're Real! Mascara (Org. price 215kr/8.5g)

There has been so much hype around this product and the push up liner but I really don't think it's worth the hype. Really sorry to all benefit lovers. I much prefer my Yves Rocher and Maybelline mascaras. One thing that really bothered me with the wand was that it felt like there were spikes sticking out and I kept on stabbing my eye. But that's just me. I prefer the flexible bristles.

Nivea - In-Shower Body Milk for Dry Skin (Org. price 65kr/250ml)

I thank the person who invented this product. It has made my life that much easier. I spend maybe a couple minutes more in the shower putting the body milk on my body, but I probably would've spent the extra time in there anyway. Basically, what you do is put this product on after you've washed your shower gel off, then you also have to wash off the body milk and it acts as a moisturising body lotion. So instead of having to put on body lotion afterwards I get it all done in the shower. I don't know if anyone else feels this way. But not having to put on bodylotion after showering is just aweeeeesome!

Schwarzkopf Pro - BC Oil Miracle Finishing Treatment - BONUS! (Org. price 249kr/100ml)

Last but not least, the bonus product in my glossybox. Like all of the other scented products that I got in this glossybox, this too smells amazing. A mixture between oil and orangey camomile scent. It helps give a shiny finish to the hair and also is a heat protectant.

Overall, this is one of the better glossyboxes I've gotten so far. I was hoping for a bit more make up but I'm still really pleased. I even went out and bought the Nivea product in full size.

I'd give this glossybox an 8/10

Looking forward to my next glossybox. The theme is Stars&Stripes. So Stay tuned.
