Glossybox June: First Impressions

So returning home from work on Tuesday night, I found my Glossybox. 'Found' is the correct term as Hermes had stuck it behind my wheelie bin in the pouring rain. It was soaked. Cheers for that.




So after getting over the fact that it was damaged, I set down to open my Glossy box and here is what was in it:


GlossyBox Pro Beauty Brush:
A perfect handbag sized brush. It's made of natural goat hair and to be honest is pretty scratchy. It's a nice addition, but I'm not sure that I would pay the £15 RRP, maybe £7 max.

Yves Rocher France mini mascara:
This mascara has the most amazing brush. I've already used it already and I felt that it made my lashes fuller and much longer.

BM Beauty summer warmth bronzer:
I'm not a fan of bronzers (weirdo, I know) and I already have this one from a blogger event I went to a while back. In general, this product is not really for me and so will probably remain unused. However, I am a fan of BM Beauty products, so it was nice to see the brand included.

Agent Provocateur Eau Provocateur:
There are actually three different vials in this box. The scents are all fairly nice and are wearable. I would advise not testing them on your hand before you go to sleep as you will be sniffing perfume all night.

Vichy Dermablend Ultra-Corrective foundation:
I'm not sure of this one. I've got 6 samples in 6 different shades whereas only one will be suitable for me. It's a foundation which claims to cover everything. If it works then great, if not then I'm not too bothered.

Overall the box was OK. There was another option I would've preferred (HD Brows tweezers) but I don't think it was the worst of the bunch.I just wish Glossybox would actually make all the boxes the same value. It would save much of the negativity that I have seen posted elsewhere about them.

In regards to the Hermes issue, I have contacted Glossybox about it and heard nothing yet.I also just attempted to contact Hermes, which surprise surprise, they say I have to contact the person who sent the parcel in the first place ie GlossyBox. Which basically means Hermes are taking no responsibility for the bad service they provide. I tried different options on the website as well and the only way I could contact them was to enquire about a new business venture. Smells fishy to me.

What do you think of this month's GlossyBox? Have you ever had dealings with Hermes before?
