Glossybox – August 2015: The Unveiling

 

I have been getting Glossybox and Birchbox for several months now and have made the decision to cancel one of my subscriptions as having both seemed excessive.

After evaluating the products I had received in both boxes over the past few months I chose to cancel Glossybox so this is my last box (unless I change my mind and re-start my subscription! The great thing about both of these monthly boxes is you can cancel at any time as your not locked into a minimum term).

This months Glossybox is a fourth birthday celebratory edition and includes FOUR full sized in recognition of this milestone. I have to say I think I will love all the products in this box – the best one I have received so far! So I am ending my subscription on a high. 

Now let’s see what I received…

 L-R: Emite Blush, MeMeMe Lipglide, Manna Kadar Lash Primer, SASS Purifying Cleanser, Naobay Toner

Emite – Blush (FULL Size – £20.59)

This is a large blush, which I would say is more of a bronzer/blush hybrid! Just take a look at the swatch on the right!

 L-R: MeMeMe Lipglide, Emite Blush

This blush is superpigmented so a tiny amount goes a long way. I’m sure I will use this so I am pleased with seeing this in my box – and it’s a great full size.

MeMeMe – Lipglide in Playful Peach (FULL size £6.95)

I’ve received a lip product from this brand before which was pretty good so I’m looking forward to trying this out. The colour is quite a bright peach/coral as you can see from the swatch above. Definitely a colour I would reach for. Lovely creamy consistency too. Great.

Nanna Kadar – Lash Primer (FULL size £14.55)

 

I have never tried a lash primer before so am intrigued by this product. This is a U.S. brand and as you can see from the photo above the primer is a white gel-like formula. The primer contains vitamin B12 to nourish and condition your lashes – sounds great. 

SASS – Purifying Cleanser (Sample size, Full Size is £7) 

This is a good 100ml sample size so a great amount of product to try. This is a body cleanser which can also be used on intimate areas as the formula works to balance the skins natural PH levels. I have never tried anything like this so interested in giving it a go. 

Naobay – Calming Face Toner (FULL size £10.95)

This is definitely the stand out product in this months box for me. I am sure I am going to adore this as I love love love trying new skincare products.

I love the packaging, especially the wooden screw top. This is a Spanish brand and this toner contains over 99% of natural ingredients including chamomile and gotu kola extracts to cleanse, calm and hydrate the skin. Fabulous. I can’t wait to try! 

Overall I have been really impressed with this months box, however this will be my last box (at least for a while) as I have cancelled my subscription.

Let me know what you think. Have you tried any of these products or did you receive anything different? I love reading and replying to your comments.

  1. Nice post 🙂 I’ve been toying with the idea on whether to subscribe to Glossy Box or not! I keep seeing good reviews, but like you I already receive Birchbox. I like the look of this month products, I might give them a go for a month or two and see which I like best!
