Glossy Box August 2015
GLAMGLOW Youth Cleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser. This is a product I had never tried before but had heard of it. It is a mud that transforms into a thick foam. It is made to gently exfoliate, cleanse and renew skin and it dissolves makeup, impurities and removes dead surface cells. I’m still not sure about this. Did not seem to bother me or my rosacea too badly, it’s just weird since I’m not use to using a mud. I will try again and reevaluate my position. This tube was 1 oz. so worth about $7.50 since retail size is 5 oz. and cost $39.00.
SPARITUAL Nail Lacquer, the color I received was I Feel the Earth Move. It is a very pretty aubergine shade of polish. Here is a swatch on a white background, I had just had my nails done so I couldn’t put it on my finger but it shows up better on the white in my opinion anyway. It is a full size and retail on that is $12.00.
POP BEAUTY Kajal Pen in Sooty Black. It is also a full size gel eyeliner pencil, retail is $10.00. It is made to smudge and even has a sponge smudger on the other end. Not sure if I’d wear this much, I need my eyeliner to stay put and not smudge so I may give this to my daughter who can still pull off the “this is from the night before” look which I * ahem* can no longer do.
CITY COSMETICS Total Eye Rejuvenation Serum. Now, this is more my speed. It helps with crows feet, fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area. It states it contains a synthetic snake venom to create a botox-like effect to promote thicker and firmer skin. Also less dark circles and under eye bags due to silk tree extract. I am excited to see if this works, here’s hoping. This is a .5 oz size which actually places the value at $47.00 because full retail size is 1 oz and is $97.00, so this is an awesome sample.
BENEFIT COSMETICS, They’re REAL! Mascara. I have used this before and it is a great mascara. If you have not used it you owe it to yourself to try it. It does have a funky applicator brush but that’s what makes it work so well. This I will toss in my travel cosmetic bag and take it on my trips. The Full Size is .3 oz and retail on it is $23.00 so this tube is worth about $7.00 or $8.00.
So, in total my Glossy Box was worth $84.50 and the subscription is $21.00 a month if you pick the monthly plan. So I think I got a pretty awesome deal this month, don’t you?
Thanks for taking your time to read my review. I hope it informed or helped in some way.
Until next time my lovelies.
