August marks five years of Glossybox. Five! It doesn't seem like it was that long ago that monthly beauty subscriptions were popping up all over the place. Some haven't stood the test of time but Glossybox is still here.
August gives us the 'Glossy greats' box*. They've also teamed up with accessory label Rae Feather to design the box and a surprise inside.
Rae Feather - Mini Monogram Pochette
I must admit when I saw this I was pretty disappointed. Upon checking out their website it seems celebs love them but I've never heard of the brand before. I can't say I'm a fan of their products or this little bag. It feels cheaply made and doesn't seem to hold a lot.
Spa To You - Deep Pore Facial Cleansing Brush
A big toothbrush for you face. That's basically how I would describe this. The bristles are supposed to buff away dead skills for a deep but gently cleanse. I find the bristles on this to be a little scratchy. It's not something I feel comfortable using on my face as I feel people could overuse it and do some damage to their skin.
Cowshed - Wild Cow Invigorating Body Lotion
£20 / 300ml
Containing lemongrass, ginger and rosemary this lotion is sure to give you an energetic buzz for the day. It also includes shea and cocoa butter to help nourish the skin and deeply moisturise. Perfect for the imminent colder weather. It's made in England, using natural ingredients and is full of essentials oils that your skin will just drink up, with a scent that is light but zingy.
Mudmasky - Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask
£53 / 60ml
Damn this face mask is expensive! It claims to be the firs PH-balanced facial treatments. It's made using all natural ingredients and contains no parabens. It helps to detoxify the skin, refine and detoxify pores, hydrates, brightens and smooths. Giving your skin a really boost. It has a slight tingling sensation which is completely normal and it will give you a dark grey looking face once applied. It totally gave me moon emoji feels.
MUA - Eyeshadow Palette - Hall Of Fame
£4 / 9.6g
I have more than enough eyeshadow palettes to last me a lifetime so I will be passing this on to someone else. The Hall Of Fame palette features a good range of light nudes, medium transition shades and the perfect darker tones for a smokey eye. It also has a range of finishes, including both mattes and metallics, with the dark black being a glittery shade. Everything you need to take your daytime to look to a dramatic evening affair.
£10 (plus p&ap) per month
