This month the GLOSSYBOX theme is SUN KISSED or get ready or stay great in the Summer and they delivered. The box that usually comes with 5 deluxe samples, came with 6 and all products has to do with this season of the year. This is a monthly subscription and I pay $21 for it.
1. WELLA PROFESSIONALS – OIL REFLECTIONS SMOOTHING OIL
First of all I love the fact that it’s a full size sample, that alone cost $20! Thank Glossybox for that!! So, I’ve tried this product before and I love it! It’s what I call a dry oil really good especially for dry or damaged hair. I like to use in my wet or damp hair before I style it. The product is not greasy at all and dries fast leaving the hair silky and smooth. It’s a good antifreeze too. When I flat-iron my hair I feel that they are protect and the iron runs way more smooth than without the product. It’s a must try!
2. DE BRUYÈRE – AFTER SUN LOTION MONOI
Oh gosh, this lotion smells so good, like that shower after the beach! It’s an after sun lotion, with a thin texture, that immediately refreshes the skin, dries very fast leaving the skin nicely scented and hydrated. It’s also a full size sample – $12, great to be taken in your beach bag!
3. TOO FACED – MASCARA MELT OFF CLEANSING OIL – WATERPROOF MASCARA DISSOLVER!
I have to say that I was confuse at the beginning with this product. I though this was a mascara but when I opened it the wand was not what I was expecting. So reading the information that came with the product I realized that this is a mascara remover! Oh ok…sometimes is good to read first the info card, but I never do that…I always check the product first…lol.
The idea is great, when you decide to remove your mascara you just apply a coat of the MELT OFF on your lashes, wait 60 seconds and then sweep away with a damp cloth or makeup wipe, seems simple doesn’t it? Cause you don’t need to rub you eyes, neither spend lots of products to remove your mascara.
So I put to the test! I apply my KATY KAT EYE MASCARA from Covergirl let it dry really well. Then I applied the Mascara Melt, that has a liquid texture on my lashes…I waited the 60 second and I used a wet cloth to remove the mascara and it work! It does melt the mascara and removes it. Now, it does not do the work instantaneity. I had to keep rubbing the cloth on my lashes many times until they were completely clean. Maybe with a makeup wipe would be more efficient, but why have two products for just one thing? Anyway, the Mascara Melt is easy to apply, it’s not messy but it’s not one sweep remover (neither claims to be, but I had that impression for some reason).
So it’s a matter of preference on how you like to remove your mascara. I’m still a fan of the liquid removers but I’ll tray this one here more and more to see if will work better overtime.
4. INVISIBOBBLE – ORIGINAL – THE TRACELESS HAIR RING
This is a really cool hair ring and it’s not the first time I’ve received like a sample. By the way another full size product that cost $8!
Well, it’s cute, it’s practical, but if you have curly thick hair, sometimes they get stuck and tangled (this is my experience with them). But if you don’t have a lot of hair or straight ones this is really a great help. I also like the fact that the product stretches a lot, so it’s manageable.
5. TRIFLE COSMETICS – LIP PARFAIT BUTTERY LIP CREAM
This is by far my favorite product of this Box! First it’s a full size sample that cost $19! And then the package…can’t be cutter than that and I’m a dog lover! Also it’s cruelty-free! But still get better..the lipstick is very pigmented, smooth, very moisturizing and the color is really pretty. It’s a nude that goes with any skin tone, good for any occasion or time of the day. It’s a winner! Love it!!
6. BORGHESE – BODY REFINING POLISH
This polish or scrubbing is great to cleanse the skin. It smells good, it’s thick so you have to massage well the area. So I like to use this before a tanning but it’s also great in that areas with cellulite (everyday before shower for better results) or even on my elbow and knees to smooth them out. It’s really a must have and must use in the Summer! Your skin will thank you!
This was my GLOSSYBOX of August with new and already known products, great full size ones all useful and perfect for this time of the year. The big surprise for me was the mascara remover – I never heard before – and my favorite was the Trifle Cosmetics lipstick – just love it!
