Happy birthday and happy third anniversary, Glossybox! I can’t believe it’s been that long. Glossybox has mastered the art of delivering full and sample-sized surprise collections of goodies from unique and interesting lines. $21 a month is a wonderfully affordable way to treat yourself, especially when the value is always well over that – the retail value of the Glossybox they sent us for August is $64.
The August box has four sample sized products and two full-sized products.
Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream (deluxe sample, retail value $17) This is the first I’ve heard of this line, and this moisturizer sounds intriguing. Ginseng has wound healing properties, collagen supports elasticity, avocado is an emollient and a terrific antioxidant, and wheat germ and sesame oils are great emollients.
Uberliss Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner (deluxe samples, combined retail value $8) These two hair care products should be extremely hydrating for hair with ingredients like royal jelly and keratin – plus these are sulfate-free. I am excited to try them out, and they are the perfect size for my upcoming trip out of town.
Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner (mini size, retail value $8) I absolutely adore my Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner, so I literally squealed when I saw this cute mini liquid liner. I find Skinny Mini is a softer black than the Eye Do Liner, so it’s great to have the choice of dark black or charcoal black. The applicator is the same, though, and this is and incredibly easy liquid liner to apply.
SpaRitual Nail Polish (full size, retails for $12) Each box has a different shade, and I got Uncharted, a fuchsia shimmer. This is a pretty, perky pink that is total fun. I love pink shades so it’s perfect for me.
Kryolan Highlighter in Cashmere (full size, retail value $18.95) What a gorgeous, glowy cream highlighter – I love this! It’s a small jar, but it’s so concentrated it will last forever. The jar was created specially for Glossybox’s third anniversary, and it’s worth the price of the box all by itself. A little Cashmere tapped onto cheekbones gives a perfect amount of glow.
For me, the stand out items are the Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner and the Kryolan Highlighter in Cashmere. However, everything in the August box is going to get play from me! If you are considering subscribing, I have some codes for extra goodies for you. Happy birthday and happy anniversary, Glossybox! - Lisa
