I’d heard beauty bloggers talking about Glossybox a lot, so looked it up to see what all the fuss was about. I love discovering new products so thought Glossybox was a great concept. I filled in a questionnaire after subscribing, so that the box contents can be tailored to my wants and needs. I am curious to how much effort is put into sending people personalised boxes but we will see!
My first Glossybox is the August highflyers box, and when it arrived I couldn’t wait to open it. I love the baby pink box and will use it to store all my nail polishes that are scattered all around my home. The contents of the Glossybox were tied neatly with a pink ribbon which was a pretty touch to the presentation.
I love the highflyers concept for the August box with brands from all over the world.
So here’s what I got…..
Sweden – Emite Make Up
Eyelash Curler, £20
I was delighted to get a new eyelash curler as my current one is looking worse for wear. This one seems like it is built well and was very comfortable when I tested it.
USA – Tresemmé
Keratin smooth concentrated treatment shot, £1.49 for full size
With the heat wave we have had in the UK, my hair has really dried out so am looking forward to trying this. It claims to turn your hair into summer goddess glory!
UK – Jelly Pong Pong
2 in 1 shadow liner, £10.50
I have never heard of Jelly Pong Pong so am curious to where you can buy this. At £10.50 RRP its gearing towards the price of Mac/Urban Decay/Benefit so I expect the quality to be good. I got the dark green shadow which is nice and shimmery and blends well.
Brazil – Oceane
Makeup remover pen, not yet available in the UK
I have never thought about purchasing a makeup remover pen before. I normally dab a bit of makeup remover on a cotton bud when I mess up, but this seems great. Really handy to keep in your makeup bag , especially if you sneeze just after applying mascara!
India – Urban Veda
Radiance day cream, £7.99 for full size
Urban Veda is a brand new skincare range founded on ancient Indian principles. It says it has been formulated to naturally combat pollution. The texture is nice and light but the smell is very strong and fragrant. Not sure if I would be brave enough to put this on my face due to the smell.
I will give all the products a good try and let you know if any of them are worth purchasing. Overall I love the August Glossybox and think the value for money on this one is good. Looking forward to the next one!
Glossybox – £10 plus £2.95 p&p
