What’s in August’s Glossybox?

August’s Glossybox is here… and it’s looking like a good un! Can it be a month already? In case you’ve been living on the moon and don’t know what Glossybox is all about, read this. I guess so. The theme is Wash and Glow and this is what I’ve got…

MURAD Time Release Blemish Cleanser 30ml

I’m quite excited about this one, I’m prone to the odd spot or five and Murad products are normally pretty effective.

AHAVA Mineral Body Lotion 40ml

Tested a little on my hand, it feels quite rich and intensely moisturising – beware, it’s highly perfumed though.


I’m SUPER excited about this one! Could it be the perfect partner to 17’s Falsifeye Mascara? The tiny wand means it can get in all those little nooks and crannies.


I’ve known and loved many KMS products in the past, so I’ve got high hopes for this.

REBEL NAILS Nail Wrap (for TOES)

Um, toe wraps, What now? Finger wraps, maybe, but toe wraps, not so much! We’ll see, maybe one for my little sister.

First impressions are pretty positive this month! There’s some full size products again, I’m pleased to receive an actual make up product and I think I’ll use 4 out of the 5!

I’ll be back with full product reviews once I’ve given them the third degree.

Let me know what you got and what you think of August’s Glossybox.

You need to know about… GlossyBox

Listen up ladies, this is something you need to know about. The beauty community is abuzz with talk of a new concept called GlossyBox.  Glossybox is a savvy subscription service. For £10 a month, subscribers receive a beautifully presented gift box containing 5 luxury beauty samples, some of which will be full size. The idea is, you get to try them before you buy them!

Here’s how it works…

Subscribe online for £10 per month. Then, every month your GlossyBox will arrive containing carefully selected, indulgent, and on trend beauty products. Delivery is free* and you can cancel your subscription any time.

This months’ box includes 5 products including a full size Nars Orgasm Illuminator worth £21.50 and an All for Eve Lipstick, worth £10.50. Pretty good deal I’d say. What’s more, when you register you can complete a survey about your hair, eyes, skintone ete that will enable them to customise future products. It’s like getting a surprise birthday gift… EVERY MONTH!

I am seriously impressed with the first round of products, but if the quality dips, you can cancel your subscription – WIN WIN!

I’ve ordered mine and will be stalking the postman until it arrives – I’ll give you all my verdict when it does.

*Glossybox realised very quickly that this was not viable and from September 2011 will charge its subscribers £2.95 pp on top of the £10 monthly subscription. Not such a shrewd move, people love free delivery.
