Well hello there!
I am so excited for this box as it is all about the tropical season. The box has a beautiful design on it this month with the silver fish and mermaid tail with the sea bubbles etc. It is filled with beach babe essentials so lets dive in!

Senhor Do Bonfim Sea Water Hair Spray -
So this is a type of product that's perfect for people that curl there hair or love to have wavey hair. I don't personally curl my hair that often it's very rare just purely because I cannot be bothered, but if I do decide to then I will definitely use this as it gives you that texture. This smells amazing and has a really good mist on it. This is full sized  and retails for £16.

Palmers Coconut Oil Body Lotion -
Pretty obvious what this is, perfect for dry skin as it is supposed to give your whole body 24 hours of moisture. It smells absolutely divine and is completely free of nasties like parabens, sulfates and dyes. I will 100% be using this as soon as I can! This is a deluxe mini but the full size is retailing for £5.75.

Essence I Love Extreme Volume Mascara Waterproof -
Obviously I am very excited to see a makeup product in the box this month, I have never tried the Essence mascara's so I am looking forward to testing this out. I don't actually have any waterproof mascaras in my collection, as to be honest they don't really appeal to me as I just feel like they will be really difficult to take off. However because this has come in the box I will be trying this out. This is the full size and only retails for £2.80 wow!

Inuwet Cheek Shell Brush -
This brush is soooo cute! It has super soft short bristles which apparently is perfect for contouring, bronzing and highlighting. To me this does look like it will be perfect for that sharp contouring, I'm not sure about bronzing and highlighting but definitely for contouring. It is also vegan and cruelty free which is amazing and this retails for £13.20.

Regenerate Advanced Toothpaste - 
This toothpaste claims to regenerate enamel and reverse the early erosion process. I've never tried a different toothpaste other then your typical supermarket one so I am so excited to try this one! The only way you'll know if a toothpaste does a good job is to use for a long period of time so I am going to be trying this out and you'll 100% hear about if I do love it. The full size of this retails for £10 so it is obviously very expensive but we will see how it goes.

Hawaiian Tropic Sun Lotion -
This is a little extra treat for us this month which is always nice, this is a sample of their duo defence sun lotion which has SPF 30 in it. This is completely an essential for the summer months to protect your skin. I will be giving this ago when I next sunbathe and see how this is, as mentioned this is a sample but the full size retails £14.99.

So that is the July Glossy Box Opening.
