Glossybox August 2017


So August has arrived and with it, both myself and Glossybox are hoping to see that yellow ball in the sky! Speaking of Glossybox, the August Box, themed “girls just wanna have sun” has arrived and in quite some style. In a pastel blue box featuring gold writing on the lid, we have a box that has some Summer perfect products hidden inside.

Glossybox August 2017

The first item in the box is a full size product and it is the Model Launcher Safari Sun Bronzer worth £16.50. I’ve never heard of Model Launcher before but the description reads as follows: "Soft, mineral-enriched bronzer offers complimentary shades to highlight all skin tones and provides a natural healthy glow.

Conditions and protects skin with Vitamins A, C and E. Hypoallergenic, mineral oil-free, talc-free, dye-free and paraben-free." I am drawn to the Safari style print of this bronzer and I like, how with one swirl of my Kabuki brush, the colours are brought together, the one thing I would like to have seen though is a mirror in the lid.

The next item in the box is a full size SportFX Time Out Face Mist + Fix and it is worth £5.99 for 30ml. I have come across SportFX before via Glossybox (here). Described as being an uplifting mist which provides a feeling of instant freshness and continuous hydration.

The mist controls oil, deflects surface shine and keeps your skin looking and feeling beautifully fresh. With a formula rich in vitamins and anti-inflammatory ingredients it is claimed that any redness is reduced. If that isn't enough, this mist also fixes your makeup in place! With no parabens, petroleum or mineral oils, this mist does has a hint of menthol.

Up next we have the Valquer Ice Hair Mask Total Repair in a 100ml size. It is described as being an energizing hair mask with cooling effect that enhances and optimizes the effect of macadamia oil for the most unruly and exigent hair. 
Glossybox August 2017
I am a huge fan of hair masks and have quite a few within my collection but I have never tried a cooling hair mask before, so I am looking forward to giving it a try. I can imagine it comes in really handy when on holiday, having been out in the Sun all day and your scalp feels a little tender. but I can’t think of anything more soothing than a cooling hair mask after a day in the sun, especially if you’ve got a burnt scalp.

I am glad to see another item of Makeup in this months box and it comes from none other than Rodial. A full sized Rodial Suede Lips in the shade Big Apple worth £22. This is an intensely pigmented matte, moisturising lip pencil which contains hydrating vitamin E.

Big Apple is described as a soft berry shade and it is a shade I absolutely love to wear. As a matte shade, it is non-drying which again gets the thumbs up and it lasts for much longer than I was expecting and on my lips, it lasted 5-6 hours with little colour transfer.

Next up we have a 50ml size of the Batiste 2 in 1 Invisible Dry Shampoo and Conditioner which is a travel size. There was a full size Batiste product in the June Glossybox which you can see here

This one is a really handy sized product to have for summer and to have in your luggage if you are going away or if like me, you often just cannot be bothered with washing your hair and dry shampoo becomes a must have!

The final item in the box is a little added extra and it is a Purelei Aloha Hairband. I am a longtime convert to these types of hair bands and have collected quite a few from other brands. I like that they are gentle on my hair and scalp, don't trap any hairs and don't leave a kink in my hair when I remove the band. 
Glossybox August 2017
This is a first for me from Purelei as I have never come across the brand before, but I like how super-stretchy the band is and I hope it manages to retain its stretchiness over time.

I really love this months box.  I like that there is a little something for everyone and everything, whether it is makeup or skincare to haircare.  I also like that there are brands I have come across but some I definitely have not and I am looking forward to trying and using everything in this box.  If you fancy getting your hands on this box there is an offer below for you and I would love to know what you think!


**Throughout August, new customers can receive their first box for just £6 using code ‘SUN’ at the checkout!**
