I was pleasantly surprised this morning when this little box was at my doorstep. I had a Friday Favourites blog post schedules for today but this was way more exciting. Last month’s box was incredible, so I was intrigued to see whether Glossybox could live up to its new high standards. I’m so glad to say that they have. I love the August box.
The first thing I noticed was the massive, full-size Naobay Calming Face Toner. I recognised this brand straight away from an older Glossybox a few months back, when they sent me the Naobay exfoliating mask (which I’m a massive fan of). This bottle is £10.65 in shops, which is fairly expensive for a toner. I used it this morning and so far I’m impressed. The scent is soft and gentle and it doesn’t feel harsh on the skin. I like it, but will give it a few more uses before I decide whether it’s a keeper or not.
This Emite “Artist Colour Powder Blush” is priced at £20.59 in shops. At first the colour of the blush looked a bit questionable but after I read that it’s meant to be a blunzer (blush + bronzer), I understood it a bit better. I wasn’t massively impressed with their very simple packaging (literally no branding at all). Although when I applied it this morning, I fell in love. This colour is amazing! It’s super super pigmented, so a little definitely goes a long way. On the cheeks it’s a very natural yet noticeable colour. A colour I definitely wouldn’t have picked out for myself, therefore I’m really glad they sent it. My favourite product in the box by far!
This MeMeMe Lipglide in the colour Playful Peach is £6.95. Glossybox love MeMeMe and to be honest their products aren’t too bad. I like this lip pencil but the colour doesn’t really suit me. I would definitely want to see what other colours they have though, because the application and stay of this is great.
(PS. any friends who want this, speak now or forever hold your peace)
Manna Kadar is a totally new brand to me. I’m excited to try this Lash Primer, priced at £14.55. I’m not 100% sure what it does and whether it will actually work but I’m intrigued nonetheless.
And lastly, this Sass Purifying Cleanser is £7. I used it in the shower earlier today and can’t say that I’m jumping up and down with excitement from it. It’s just a shower gel with a strange scent. I noticed that Boots were selling Sass a few weeks ago, but I’m still not entirely convinced about the brand. Their packaging is a bit dull and their products claim to do amazing things which I don’t really understand. I don’t know, but I’ll continue to use this until it finishes. Maybe I’ll change my mind.
