August Glossybox

Having spent the last few weeks using the products from this months Glossybox, I’m pretty sure that this is the best one yet. I love it.

The theme of this months box was ‘international superstars’, featuring products from around the world. In mine I got from Germany Alessandro’s Pro White, from Japan DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, from Spain Vera Valenti L’ombre a Paupiere Margarita and from the UK Lipcote. I also got All For Eve For The Eve Appeal Eve’s Balm and the Glossybox Lipstick in Glossy Pink. I quite liked it when I opened my box and found that there was six items as opposed to the usual five.


For some reason it doesn’t look like it in the photo, but, there was eyeshadow everywhere.  It wasn’t all too pretty. Other than that I was quite happy when I opened my box.

On the subject of the eyeshadow, I didn’t like it. It looked cheap, it felt cheap and was just awful in general.

The other product that didn’t exactly float my boat in this box was the cleansing oil. Sure it was nice but I don’t think that it was ‘revolutionary’ as it claimed I would. It felt like it left my face very oily afterwards which has left me thinking that I’ll stick to my regular cleanser.

Lipcote was definitely my favourite product in this months box. It did exactly what it said it would do. It made a huge difference to how long my lipstick lasted – instead of needing to replace it every couple of hours, it comfortably lasted all day at work. The tingly feeling I didn’t think was too bad either, I know some people hated that feeling, but for me it  wasn’t too bad and if it meant it lasted all day – small price to pay.

I didn’t really think that the All For Eve For The Eve Appeal was actually that nourishing for my skin. I did however love the smell of it, it has this gorgeous herbal smell that  is simply amazing. It also was easily absorbed into my skin just as it said it would. And to top it all of the balm helps raise money for gynaecological cancer. So would I buy this again, yes I think I would, probably just for the smell.

The Alessandro Pro White was an amazing product. It really did brighten my nails and gave them a nice shine. One of the things that I’ll have to bare in mind for future is that I really need to make sure that there are no little splatters of black paint on my nails, this product made them unbelievably noticeable. One downside was that I noticed in certain lights it made my nails go a really weird colour, sorta a bluey tinge, it was seriously weird.

The Glossybox lipstick was in my mind a bit of a freebie and with that in my I thought it was an amazing product. I don’t think that the colour looks particularly good on me, it looks a little weird. It is however an amazing colour that I really wished looked good on me, it felt amazing too when I applied it too. I would love this in a slightly different colour, I think I would be first in line to buy it too.

Other than the eyeshadow palette that I’m desperately trying to forget I really liked this months box. Anyone else got any horror stories about this months box?
