August Glossybox Review


Hey beaut's!

So its that time again... Glossybox time!!! Firstly I have to say a massive Happy Birthday to Glossybox, that's right Glossybox are now celebrating their 3rd birthday in the beauty world which means we get treated to a birthday themed box, woohoo! I've always been impressed by the birthday themed boxes in the past because they are always crammed full of amazing treats so you can  just imagine how excited  I was to receive my box this month. After ripping open the outta packaging I noticed the box itself has been given a slight revamp, it seems to be alot stronger and hard wearing that the other boxes, next I noticed their was no magazine or menu card, instead the boxes menu is on a thick, fold together piece of card, I have no idea if this is how Glossybox will be delivered in the months to come or if it's just slightly different because it's a birthday box.

   So lets see what I received inside my '3rd Birthday' Glossybox...

Kryolan for Glossybox Highlighter in Cashmere | Full Size | £12.95
Kryolan are a professional makeup brand that I've heard alot about, they specialise more in supplying the film, theatre and television industries with their extensive range of makeup but this month they have worked together with Glossybox so that us beauty lover get to try one of their beautiful highlighters. The highlighter itself is extreamly creamy and lend out a dream, the shade I have is Cashmere which is perfect for the Summer when you want that golden goddess glow he he.

Figs & Rouge Mini Hand Cream | Sample | £6.95 for 80ml
I'm pretty sure that Glossybox featured a Figs & Rouge lip balm in one of last years boxes but this time around they've popped in a Mango-Mandarin nourishing and soothing hand cream. I do really like Figs & Rouge as a brand, I love the fact their products are pure and natural and the packaging ain't half snazzy too isn't it. I'm actually going to put this hand cream away to use during the Autumn/Winter months  because my hands get terribly dry when its colder and it the perfect size to pop into my handbag too. 

Yves Rocher Nail Polish in Rose | Full Size | £3.60
This Yves Rocher nail polish is what Glossybox are calling their 'Birthday Bonus' product, it's a teeny, tiny 3ml bottle of nail polish that would be perfect for when your on your travels but the shade I got 'Rose' is definitely more Spring time appropriate Id say, howvere I will get use out of it at some point, we all need a pretty, baby pink nail polish at some point don't we beaut's!

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer | Sample | £38.00 for 250ml
I'm actually slightly annoyed I received this Elasticizer from Philip Kingsley because I have already received one of these exact samples in a previous Glossybox but oh well I know have another to use up! The elasticizer is basically an intense, super conditioning pre-shampoo treatment for all hair types that will give your hair some life and oomph back into it. I would recommend it for damaged hair in particular because when I last used it I did really notice an improvement.

Essence Long Lasting Lipstick in Natural Beauty | Full Size | £2.29
I havent really heard to much about the makeup brand Essence but after looking at the website I'd definitely say it's more teen inspired and definitely quite youthful, that being said the shade of lipstick I received '07 Natural Beauty' is one of their new products for Autumn/Winter which is a plus. The lipstick itself is said to be long lasting providing your lips with intense colour payoff for hours without drying them out which is certainly something I look for and love in lipsticks so I'm looking forward to giving this a go, I will probably review in full soon too.

Lalique L'Amour Perfume Sample | £67.00 for 50ml 
Arrrhhh the dreaded perfume sample, I absolutely hate receiving these because I always tend to either lose them or throw them away, however it does smell nice and I will use it until I lose it haha.

All in all I think this is an ok box but it hasnt blown me away, that being said I will be trying everything that I recived in my box so its not all bad I just wish Glossybox wouldnt add the perfume samples and keep featuring the same brands often, mix things up abit Glossybox hehe.

What did you think of this month's box beaut's?? I'd love to know.

  6. So many great things! I've never been able to purchase a glossybox but after seeing your box this month, it's definitely something I want to try when I can afford to purchase them frequently!
    I love the colour of the nail varnish & lipstick! And I think I could benefit from trying the Elasticizer...well actually it all looks amazing!
