August 2015 Glossybox

Last month's Glossybox was a good'n so I had high expectations for this month's box which arrived a couple of weeks ago. I've had time to go through my box and let you know what I think of all the products. This month's box celebrates the fact Glossybox are now available in ten countries.

I'm pretty happy with the box, I just wish we could have experienced some different brands rather than ones that have been featured in the box this year already.

Emite Artist Colour Powder Blush – Full Size £20.59
This blush/bronzer hybrid was voted by us. When swatching this product it crumbled away and I was worried that I would pick too much up on my brush. I found that swirling my brush onto the product and tapping off the excess left just the right amount of product to sweep across my cheeks and leave a nice glow. This product definitely looks good for summer makeup as it does give you that summer glow and light contour. There is no way I would pay over £20 for this though, I am sure there are a lot cheaper alternatives on the highstreet that do as good a job.

Naobay Calming Face Toner – Full Size £10.65
I’ve reviewed a Naobay product on my blog before which I also received from Glossybox. I love the packaging on these products and the wooden lid makes them feel really luxurious. What I love about this toner is that it doesn’t have much of a scent as I am not a fan of highly perfumed toners. This removes trace makeup when applied with a cotton pad and is 99.13% natural so I am happy using this on my face every day.

SASS Purifying Cleanser – Full Size £7.00
This is the second SASS product I have received from Glossybox and not a product I have ever thought to buy. This intimate cleanser aims to balance your skins PH levels. I can’t say I’ve noticed much of a difference but it is nice to feel fresh ‘down there’ if you know what I mean.

MeMeMe Lipglide in Playful Peach – Full Size £6.95
When I first saw this lipglide I thought it was going to be a bit bright for me, but the colour pay off on the lips is really nice and subtle. This product is hydrating but it doesn’t last long on the lips especially when eating soon after applying this. It is a lovely colour and a great addition to any handbag.

Manna Kadar Lash Primer – Full Size £14.55
I love this product. I have never owned a lash primer before and this fulfils everything that I would want in a lash primer. Manna Kada is not a brand I have ever heard of before. I’ve been layering this under my normal mascara and I’ve found my lashes feel hydrated. I am no longer left with black dried mascara flecks under my eyes which is a bonus for me. This primer contains vitamin B12 which leaves your lashes conditioned and voluminous and I can vouch that this product does just that.
