Glossybox #3 - Third and Final Box

so just a tad late with this box, but never the less here it is..

The July edition of my Glossybox and my final box of my 3month subscription.
Being July, not much happens here in the UK, schools break up and Prince George has his birthday - but its all about the Americans on the 4th with their celebrations of independance day!
I'll admit, when I heard it was USA themed - I was hoping for something in the likes of Sephora or Limecrime but beggers can't be choosers and I was pretty happy with what I got so let me talk you through it...

Firstly, how pretty is that packaging! I like the glossybox boxes but this design is so so pretty!

On first impression - although this is the standard glossybox style - Ive been lucky to have good boxes so far so this looks pretty bare and kind of small but once I delved into the items, I realised all the products are pretty long lasing.

Dr Bronners Magic Soaps - £3.99 for 140ml - BUY 
I'm personally not a fan of lavender (and we have so many soaps in our house) so I might give this as a gift to someone but the fact that its made organically and 'properly' makes me happy to have this - and i'll admit although not my favourite scent , it did make my box smell pretty

Nicka K New York Eyeshadow Primer - £4.99 (full size) - BUY 
eeee The kind of gift I love! Eyeshadow primer is such a key item for me as I suffer from really oily eyes (didnt even know that was a thing for ages) so the fact that this will not only keep my shadow in place but its also oil free - I cant wait to review this but I'm still using my benefit one at the moment. 

Bella Pierre Lipstick in Ruby - £20 (full size) - BUY
Again, another great item to find in here - I have a weird love for lipstick that I love everything about it but im 99% sure it doesnt suit me. Red has always been my go to shade, although I have tried to venture out recently, but the shape of this looks like it'll glide right on lips and i'm sorry but at £20 normally, i'm expecting this to be amazing - its more than MAC for crying out loud!

 Carmex Lip Balm - £1.79 (full size) - BUY
Carmex will always remind of High School and that one friend that always has it or some form of lip balm. From what I remember Carmex really tingles lips so I'll keep it as you can't go wrong but I think its a bit of a filler product.

Color Club Nail Laquer - GlossySeal - $8 for 15ml - BUY
 I'm never going to  complain about a nail varnish now am i? I seem to love building my collection, Plus this is one of the few that I can't seem to get hold of in the actual UK, so is very fitting with the box!

Overall, I'm really happy with this box - I'll be publishing a post about all 3 next week as a bit of a roundup of Glossybox but this is a great little themed box and for only £10, you can't go wrong!

Did you recieve one of these? let me know what you got in the comments below :)

ALSO, I need to know which box to start next - if you have any ideas throw them my way as I can't wait to delve into a new brand!
