Glossybox - Aloha Review | July 2020

When I started to see some pictures of the July Aloha Glossybox, I was so excited to finally get mine delivered. I absolutely love the bright colours and the design on the box, it is so colourful and just makes you smile when looking at it. The theme for July's Glossybox was all about tropical, summer vibes and this box definitely does that!

Similar to previous months, there are 5 products included in the Aloha box. I believe that with this box there are still different variations that can be received, my box was variation 3. I also received an email prior to receiving the box from Glossybox which advised that one of the products (The Beauty Crop, Palm Balm) wasn't available and that it was being substituted. The item that I received in replacement for this was the Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara Deluxe Mini. Whilst I understand that there can be times where products aren't available, in my opinion it would be better if the substitutions provided fitted better with the theme of the box or similar to what the original product was meant to be. 

The product's that I received as part of July's Aloha box included:
  1. Kocostar Fruit Slice Mask Sheet (Strawberry)
  2. Jecca Blac Grow Drop Primer
  3. Naobay Orange Juice Hand Cream
  4. Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara Deluxe Mini
  5. Give them LaLa Beauty Aloha Bronzer
Apart from the substituted Eyeko Mascara, all other products that I received were full sized. In total (including the Eyeko Mascara) this box had a retail value of £60.80, which again is excellent value when your compare it to the monthly subscription plans that are available. This box would have been even more value for money if all of the products advertised had been received. 

Kocostar - Fruit Slice Mask Sheet

I love sheet masks and generally keep a small collection of my favourites ready to use. It is infused with natural strawberry extracts and should provide your skin with a burst in moisture and hydration. Looking forward to trying this sheet mask out as part of my evening skincare routine. 

Jecca Black Glow Drop Primer

This is a primer that should also create a glowing base ready for make-up to be applied. I haven't heard of this brand previously but look forward to trying this primer out. I have a number of different primers that I use on a regular basis, so it will be interesting to try this out and see how it compares. 

Naobay Orange Juice Hand Cream

In these current circumstances, I am loving using all the hand creams that I have received as part of previous Glossyboxes, so looking forward to adding this to my 'to try' collection. This is a hydrating hand cream that smells of freshly squeezed orange juice and is a blend of shea butter, chamomile, aloe vera and orange water. I briefly tried this when I initially opened the box and it certainly lives up to it's name, with lovely tones of orange juice and made my hands feel really soft after using it. 

Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara Deluxe Mini

This was the substituted product that I received as part of this box and is similar to a mascara received in a previous box apart from this being the sport waterproof version. Not only is this a waterproof mascara it is sweat resistant so I will look to try this out as part of getting back to gym sessions. I do really like the packaging of these products as they definitely are looking at minimising waste and plastics. 

Give them LaLa Beauty - Aloha Bronzer

This bronzer has the same beautiful packaging as the Aloha box and I absolute love it. This bronzer is long-wearing and a pigmented formula which I am looking to try out in my make-up looks. I love a bronzer that gives you a sun-kissed look so this one should be perfect for achieving this. 

I hope that if you also received this month's Aloha themed Glossybox that you are enjoying the products and the design of the box. August's box is going to be a birthday surprise as Glossybox celebrate their birthday, so I'm excited to seeing which products are going to be included as no clues have been given so far.
