Whether you’re living in a “Yellow Submarine” like the Beatles, diving “into the mystic” with Van Morrison or surfing the USA next to your very own beach boy, a beauty routine shouldn’t run dry just because you’re oceanside.
Fortunately, Glossybox has you covered and in the spirit of the summer heat, we selected these ocean-inspired products that we know you’ll want for when the tide goes out.
John Masters Organic Shine On Leave-in Hair Treatment
Listening to the ocean waves break on the shore is highly regarded as one of the most calming sounds out there. Wanna know what’s not calming? Having a piece of kelp graze your leg underneath murky water. Fortunately, John Masters keeps the kelp right where we want it – in our hair.
After letting the salty ocean water dry in your hair on the beach, take a relaxing shower with this Shine On Leave-in Hair Treatment and restore your hair to the voluminous, soft, and shiny state you deserve with nutrient-rich plant extracts.
This product is also a great way to repair some of the damage all of your other hair products can create. Using products to stop damage from using products? Yes, it sounds insane but just stay with us, here.
Using hair products can create build up, preventing much-needed moisture from getting onto your hair. The Shine On Leave-in Hair Treatment uses sea kelp, beech bud extract, and carrot seed oil to help prevent that buildup, leaving you with lush volume and body.
Moodmatcher Lipstick in Blue
Summer is the season for taking chances – new romances, a cheeky Brazilian bikini bottom, and that last hour in the sun without an extra coat of sunscreen. We can’t guarantee any of those risks will pay off, but we know you’ll be rewarded with Moodmatcher Lipstick.
If you’re thinking “I love the ocean, but I could never pull off blue lipstick,” you’re in luck because the lipstick doesn’t actually go on blue.
Moodmatcher isn’t just the brand name – it’s the concept behind the lipstick. It’s the first color-changing lipstick, working with your own body’s unique chemistry to personalize your lip shade.
The beautiful light blue lipstick actually goes on in more of a plum color, giving you a fun color to show your friends with a subtle bit of added glam. All the fun of a ‘70s mood ring without the dreaded Farrah Fawcett bangs.
NCLA Nail Wraps in Marine Mollusk
Whether you prefer your mollusks in the ocean or on your plate, everyone will love these NCLA nail wraps. It’s the perfect way to get an amazing nail design without paying salon prices or wasting your time waiting for your nails to dry.
If you’ve never applied nail wraps, don’t worry because Glossybox never gives you anything you can’t handle.
- Step 1: Apply the NCLA top and base coat
- Step 2: Select the nail wrap size that best fits your nail
- Step 3: Press the nail wrap down onto your nail, folding the excess over the front
- Step 4: Use the nail file included in the package and in a downward motion file your nail to remove the excess wrap.
- Step 5: Apply another coat of the NCLA top and base coat.
The Marine Mollusk pattern is absolutely perfect to wear to the beach since it’s a mix of sea foam green, a chic black because style never goes out of season, and pink like the daquiri in your hand.
GLAMGLOW – Water Burst
One of the best parts of summer is being able to splash around in the cool ocean waves, and while the summer fun will get you wet, it can leave your skin high and dry.
The GLAMGLOW Water Burst moisturizer not only gives you instant hydration but the Hyaluronic Acid complex forms a moisture reservoir that will continue hydrating your skin for 72 hours.
Given that it is summer and a time for the sea, it’s perfectly fitting that GLAMGLOW blends water from the volcanic island of Jeiu and TEAOXI® Blue Nymph Lily Extract to give you the sexy, hydrated skin you need for a night out after a day on the beach.
Like any good summer romance, it’s important to keep the heat on so here’s a little tease for you – the complimentary products to this month’s box will be arriving at your doorstep next month.
