I'm really enjoying Glossybox as a brand lately, and they keep knocking it out of the bag. The July Edit boasts Hello Summer on the box which sums up the contents pretty damn well. It includes travel-friendly sized products, makeup that can stand the heat and summer problem solvers. The box is the first of the summer collector's edition boxes with a sneaky hint towards next month's Girls Just Wanna Have Sun box. Inside this box are 5 summery products ranging from £4.99 to £25, all for £10.

I'll talk about the most expensive item in the box first, and that is the BellaPierre Cosmetics Banana Setting Powder (£25). I love using yellow-toned items under the eyes and hit pan on my ABH Contour Kit and I'm quickly making my way through the Nip + Fab Contour Palette, so this has come at such perfect timing. The baking makeup trend to set different areas of makeup helped products like this rise up in the beauty world, and this banana setting powder has a yellow hue to counteract discolouration, dark circles and to highlight the area. I'm in love with this product and is more travel-friendly than taking a whole palette on a trip. I'm just glad it doesn't smell like bananas too.

The second most expensive item in the box is the MONUspa Soothing After Sun Lotion (£19.95) which is obviously a great item for summer holidays. It has the most active form of soothing aloe vera along with Vitamin E and shea butter to hydrate, cool and help calm 'sunned-out' skin. You can use it on both your body and face after sun exposure and will even be useful on the short amount of days that the UK has sun. Another hydrating product is the CuteBalms Macaroon Tint Balm in Crushed Berry (£5.99). Firstly, it's adorable and definitely justifies the brand name 'cutebalms'. The colour is stunning and I don't mind having this out on my makeup desk compared to boring lip balms. It is a multi-use product and can be used on the cheeks for a little tint or on the lips for a rosy glow.

The accessories in this box really stud out to me! The Papanga Spiral Hairbands (£4.99) come in a pack of two and I have pink and blue ones which are both my favourite colours. Hair can fray and become damaged when you use a traditional elastic hair bobble so with these they hold the hair in place whilst preventing split ends and breakage. They're also fun but I would enjoy clear versions too. The last product in the box is the Spectrum Collections Small Fan A10 Brush (£4.99). Aside from the fact it instantly draws you in by the bright bristles, it's a great brush for applying highlighter. I've used a few differently highlighting brushes, from Indy Luxe to Real Techniques and this brush is a great balance of being packed together well with them not being too thick at the ends.

I really enjoyed this July Box, with no products that I'm disappointed in. I would prefer the Spiral Headbands to be a bit more neutral but that's just me! If you join Glossybox now, you get your first box for £5 which is an absolute bargain given that the contents are valued at £60.92! By using this offer you're basically only paying for the Spectrum Small Fan brush and a penny towards another item.
