August Glossybox …

FullSizeRender 6

Another month, another Glossybox.  In this month’s box are five very different products, one of which was an eyeshadow palette that Glossybox allowed you to choose from four different palettes.

Unfortunately, I was sent a different palette than the one I chose, but Glossybox emailed me to say that they would put my chosen option in the September box.  The palette they sent was the Glitter Ball palette. This is a bit bright and shiny for my liking but there are some shades that I can use.



I am really looking forward to trying this mask, as it claims wondrous things. It is PH balanced and parabens free.  It refines and tightens pores and hydrates, brightens and smooths skin.  This is a new brand to me so it will be interesting to see if it can deliver on its claims.


This is a manual cleansing brush a head of soft bristles and silicone cushions that you can use with your normal cleansing product.  I have tried a battery powered facial brush before and I am not totally convinced that I need this type of product in my cleansing routine, but I will give it a go.


This I love.  I have already tried this and I absolutely adore the smell of this body lotion.  It contains lemongrass, ginger and rosemary and smells devine.  Also, the texture is beautiful – it sinks into the skin and leaves it smooth and hydrated.  Very happy that this was in the box.

So, all in all, not a bad box this month.  I have actually cancelled my subscription to the Birchbox this month as it is not inspiring me at the moment.  I may re-subscribe in the future or I may try a different box.  What boxes do you subscribe to?  What would you recommend?

I would love to hear your comments.  Have a great week and see you soon…
