Glossybox {August} + September Harper Bazaar Glossybox Details


*sponsored

I just received my August Glossybox on September 9th. I must have been in one of the last waves of shipping this month. Sometimes I get it really early and sometimes really late. As long as it comes I am thrilled. Anyways, this August box was a special 3 year anniversary box! It came with a Glossybox exclusive product and a nice foldout with the products and a note from the Founder and CEO. Here is what I received. 


*Uberliss hydrating shampoo and conditioner (approximate value for 2oz. of each sample: $8.30 total): Uberliss promises shine and hydration with ingredients like royal jelly, blueberry, apple, sugarcane, green tea, lemon peel and keratin. I am not typically a fan of hydrating hair products since I have oily hair. I used this duo today and I didn't really like the way the shampoo felt in the shower. However, my hair is feeling pretty soft and amazing right now. I am still on the fence, but I will use up the samples.

*SpaRitual nail laquer in Uncharted (FULL SIZE $12): This color is really pretty. It is metallic and shimmery. Plus, My Husband said he thought it was pretty. I am excited to try this. 

*Eslor firming collagen day cream (apv for 10ml size is $17): Eslor contains natural skin-firming ingredients like ginseng extract, hydrolized marine collagen, avocado, wheat germ and sesame oils. This cream has a very heavy "old lady" flower smell to it. In spite of that, I really love this cream. It makes my skin feel incredibly soft and silky. This was probably my favorite item in the box. 

*Kryolan for Glossybox (FULL SIZE $18.95): This was the special product made for Glossybox's third Birthday. It is a really nice cream highlighter. It isn't a huge container, but I know from experience that this much highlighter will last a long time. My favorite place to use highlighter is my cupids bow.
 
*Eyeko Skinny Mini liquid eyeliner (half size eyeliner value: $8): I'm not a huge liquid eyeliner fan. I would much rather use an Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil. I do own a few other Eyeko liners and I really like them. So, I will probably attempt to use this. Wish me luck! 

TOTAL VALUE: $64.25

While this box didn't knock my socks off, it was still a great box. It's value is three times the cost of Glossybox. I really love the day cream and the highlighter. I will definitely use all of these items. Happy Birthday Glossybox!

The September Glossybox will be a Harper Bazaar Glossybox!! I do have a sneak peek for you. However, keep in mind that this is only one of two boxes. I don't have details on the second box or on how much of it will vary. 


-Vichy Liftactiv Nuit

Optimize skin's natural nighttime repair mechanisms with this evening moisturizer, which stars anti-aging plant sugar extract, rhamnose, and continuous-release vitamin C. Promising to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and boost skin's firmness, this cream also offers 24 hours of hydration and improved skin tone.

-Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar: Metallic in Authentic 

Infused with state of the art high-resolution metallic pigments, the unparalleled opacity of Lip Tar now has an intense shimmer finish. The frosted bronze copper shade is perfect for when you need a little sparkle!

-Essie Madison Ave-Hue

Both playful and chic, Madison Ave-Hue is a perfectly posh pink for day or night.

-Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Mascara

They're Real! Mascara lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts and separates lashes like no other. The jet-black, long wearing formula won't smudge or dry out. Plus, a specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!

-Bvlgari Eau Parfumee Au The Blanc Conditioner

Boasting a rich formula that contains extracts of rice and cotton, this gentle cream conditioner leaves hair lightly scented with BVLGARI's caling Eau Parfumee au the blanc fragrance.

So exciting!! I would love this box. I really help that I get the Benefit Mascara since it is my absolute favorite mascara (and trust me; I have tried dozens).


If you are a new subscriber, use code FLAWLESS to get a free Boscia BB Cream ($38 Value) in your first box! I'm so jealous!

*Disclaimer: I was provided with a free box in order for my honest opinion. I was not compensated in any other way.
