If you didn’t know July 4th was Independence day in America you’ve probably been living under a stone for a while. To celebrate the iconic occasion Glossybox themed their July edition on the Stars and Stripes of the sunny USA.
Each product is either linked to the colours of the American flag or originated in the states. I love the limited edition Glossybox style and it certainly stands out in comparison to the typical girly pink theme. The products are worth well over the price of the box but I can’t say everything was really to my taste. Check out my video as I first opened the box – don’t forget to comment and let me know what you think!
As ever if you can’t wait, here’s the scoop below.
