Unboxing: August 2012 Glossybox│USA

glossybox august 1

I'm very excited about this month's Glossybox! It has some interesting products I would have never thought of buying. If you don't know what Glossybox is, it's a brand that delivers 5 deluxe samples (cosmetics and perfumes) every month with a theme. This month's theme is Pure Luxury.  The price is $21 for every box (plus tax if you live in New York or California). If you want to suscribe, please leave your email in the comments below and I will make sure to send you an invite!

Just recently they started sending GlossyMag which contains tips, trends, and some interesting articles, etc. I really like this complimentary magazine, as it also has recommendations of new exciting products to try out!

And of course, Glossybox pays a lot of attention to details and the packaging is always lovely. I love how they wrap it and even the box it comes in it's adorable!

A card that has the description and price of the full size items. This month's box has 2 full size products! I'm very excited to try the Illamasqua nail polish and the Touch in Sol Skin Base.

I titled this post Unboxing as I will be making different reviews for my favourite products. But, here are the deluxe (and full size!) products I received:

1. Ole Henriksen Truth Serum: a high powered vitamin C complex which helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. I don't really have any wrinkles yet (yey!) as I'm only 21. I debated and researched whether I should use anti-aging products but I'm a bit skeptical and don't know what to do yet,  so I will probably pass this to my mum so she can try it out!
2. Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Purity:  a hardwearing and chip resistant nail varnish, it only needs 2 coats to achieve a perfect finish. (will review separately!)  The colour is an opaque coral, lovely!
3. Touch in Sol Feel like Honey Moon Skin Base: For a better makeup application, a moisturizer and a primer are highly recommended! I love all-in-one products and this skin base has a honey texture that firms and revitalizes the skin. I tried this, and the texture is amazing! It's not greasy at all and dries instantly, my skin feels softer after application.
4. Ellis Faas Creamy Lips inL107:  a chocolate caramel long wearing lipstick with a shiny finish. The colour is very appealing and it's not sticky at all! It also hydrates and smooths the lips. The packaging is quite odd, it looks like a pen and it's a little bit too big, but i like it anyway! 
5. Biolage Exquisite Oil Replenishing Treatment: this treatment is infused with Moringa il Blend. I truly have no idea what that is, but it gives instant shine and weightless replenishment! 

I'm absolutely in love with this month's Glossybox! I love all the products and will be testing them out everyday! 

Have you got your Glossybox yet? Any products/colours that were different from mine?

  2. This Glossybox looks like a winner! I've tried the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum (even though I'm even younger than you, haha...) and it didn't make a difference in my skin but maybe on someone older it would work better. The Ellis Faas lip product and the Illamasqua nail polish look great! :D
