Hey loves.

Usually my Glossybox unboxings are earlier on in the month then I post another for my review of the products inside at the end of the month. I wanted to get it all in the one post really so saved the post for now. I can’t believe we are already in September, where has this year gone? I am receiving my September Glossybox soon so best get the August one up and reviewed now huh!!

The last couple of months have been great, I have been so happy with all the products inside the boxes – us glossy’s have been spoilt. This month was my 12th box so a whole year!! I was given a little free gift to say thank you included in my box this month – a really cute little pink Glossybox notebook.. It’s gorg i love it!! Thank you Glossybox.

An extra treat was added into the box this month for us all – A gorgeous Aloha bracelet from Purelei.. I received a beautiful baby blue coloured one.. It’s so stylish!! It doubles up as a bracelet or a hair tie and is very comfortable worn either way. Doesn’t get caught in your hair and doesn’t leave bracelet marks on your wrist.. Made from a lovely stretchy nylon fabric. We also got a 30% discount to use on the Purelei Website.. gotta love Purelei for this!


Products Included In August Box :

  • Modellauncher – Safari Sun Bronzor : Full Size RRP £ 16.50
  • Valquer – Ice Hair Mask, Total Repair : 100ml RRP £ 14.99
  • Batiste – 2 in 1 Dry Shampoo & Conditioner Vanilla & Passionflower : 50ml RRP £ 4.49
  • Rodial – Suede Lips : Full Size RRP £ 22.00
  • SportFX – Time Out Face Mist + Fix : Full Size RRP £ 5.99

So three of the five products are full size this time and the price of the other items included in the box are based on the full size product.


Unfortunately I won’t be able to give a review or my thoughts much at all on the Valquer Ice Hair Mask, Total Repair because I have an allergy to nuts and their oils including Macadamia.. This is such a huge problem i encounter with products and i would say around 8/10 boxes will contain an item or two i can’t use.. It’s a shame as this Energising hair mask sounds really nice. You also receive a decent size sample of 100ml so i’m pretty gutted i can’t try it out!! Instructions include to gently massage into the hair and leave for 3-5 minutes before rinsing out with water. Does say to have a cooling effect so i’m guessing it will be one of those really nice tingling hair care products.. sounds really lovely.

I can however give my thoughts and review on the rest of the products including my favourite product of this month’s box – The SportFX Time Out Face Mist & Fix!!

I am just in love with this SportFX face mist, it is a super fine mist that has a lovely refreshing light scent of menthol to it. It instantly feels reviving on the skin as well as cooling and soothing. It’s honestly so beautiful, I love just spritzing my face with this in the morning for an instant refreshing wake up call as well as random times throughout the day.. never let’s me down and i will definitely be repurchasing this – i cant believe the price.. well worth the price tag. Definitely feels lovely spritzing over finished makeup as well and it’s also Vegan Friendly!!!

Batiste has always been one of my favourite hair product companies.. And for good reason. Their dry shampoo’s never let me down, no white residue just lovely fresh, clean looking hair. I dye my hair, bright red in fact.. Magenta Red! As many will know red is one of those colours known to strip the easiest so regular washing is something I can’t do. I tend to wash my hair normally with shampoo and conditioner twice a week and every other day is dry shampoo! Always Batiste, my favourite is the tropical it smells like coconut – so amazing in the summer time. I had never used one of their 2 in 1 products before so i was super excited to get stuck it. The Vanilla & Passionflower 2 in 1 is so nice, smells fantastic and leaves my hair looking and feeling fresh and clean.. Honestly Batiste, you could never do me wrong!


The Rodial Suede Lips pictured above.. This wasn’t the first product of Rodial to be in our Glossybox. Last year we received an Eyeliner.. which by the way I have almost used up and will be repurchasing because it is just sooo damn blendable!! I was so happy to see another Rodial product featured in August’s box. I received the most gorgeous berry shade : Big Apple..perfect for summer !! This picture doesn’t do the shade justice AT ALL!! But I am just so loving matte lips recently, there is something so lush about them. The colour is pretty intense ( pigmented ) and the formulation is so hydrating containing Vit E. Super pretty, slightly scented but nothing too drastic. Another fabulous product from Rodial.



And last but not least, I have swatched the Modellauncher Safari Sun Bronzer. I really wanted to show you how gorgeous the pigment was, the three different shades all work together perfectly but i also love the gold shimmer for highlighting alone. I love how this product is enriched with minerals.. Definitely sounds like something i will always be happy to wear on my face. I love using a big fluffy blush with this and just gently sweeping over all the high points of my face.. Cheekbones, forehead and chin. It doesn’t appear too dark as long as used in moderation which is all you need with this product as it’s soo super dooper silky and pigmented. So beautiful, nice used on the eyes too by using the gold on the lids, lighter brown blended into the crease with the darkest brown on the outer V or used with a little water on an eyeliner brush to line the upper lashes!! The Safari Sun Bronzer = Stunning.

Again, as always I’m in love with my August Glossybox.. All of the products are of high quality and by my calculations the box itself would be worth over £ 60.00 which is amazing for a box that costs just £10 with £3.25 delivery per month. Signing up for a Glossybox Subscription was the best choice I ever made in the beauty world because i get to try out products i normally wouldn’t notice and brands i didn’t know even existed!

Right now, if you would also like to become a Glossy and become a part of the Glossy Famalam you can use my code here : http://referme.to/1mB6guo and get a FREE MAKEUP DUO worth £ 30 for signing up and you should bag yourself 40 % off your first box by entering my code above.. How amazing! I just pay monthly rather than large upfront costs I find this much easier to manage. Also as a glossy member you can review all your received products every month and earn Glossydots.. Once you reach 1000 Glossydots you bag yourself a free months box!

Thank you Glossybox for yet another great box!!
