August Glossybox

I’m back again to show you another wonderful subscription service. GLOSSYBOX !!

I have been subscribed to them for about 2-3 yrs now. This is one of the ones I don’t think I could ever part with. Even when I moved across country I made sure to transfer my boxes to the new address. I didn’t want to miss out !!

There’s not always gonna be a box you love 100% but that’s not the point of this. The point is you get amazing products, new products, products you never thought you’d use before for $21 a month.

And of course the value of the box is always more than $100. And closer to the holidays the boxes are even better. High end products for pennies on the dollar.

First up are blushes from Doucce Cosmetics. Last month they sent a little compact with one little blush. The shade was “Summer Sunset”.

Then for this box we got a survey to choose our own shade which I thought was nice. I chose the Mauve shade. I wish the first one wasn’t the Peach shade, but otherwise it’s fine. I think I may order that beautiful pink shade on my own.

Value: $32.00

Next we got a brow gel from PIXI by Petra. I have been curious about this brand for a while. They’re cruelty free and their very reasonably priced. So far this has been amazing. It’s not as strong as the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel, but it works. I actually use this before bed. I’m still trying to train my brows to stay in place. They’re unruly little devils 😉

Value: $10.00

I think people went bananas over this product. Almost every subscription box I got this month had a sample of this. So now I have a full size and 2 minis. I may have to update my trade pile soon.

I already received a full size of this mascara in my Influenster box. But I can tell you I really did enjoy it. This results are pretty phenomenal. You get long fluttery lashes that are deep, thick and flattering. The effect almost replicates the look of falsies. Especially if you’ve already been blessed with long natural lashes.

Here’s my BEFORE & AFTER.

Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara

Value: $12.00 for the mini. $25.00 for full size.

Up next we received a sample of the BLISS LEMON & SAGE BODY BUTTER.

I’m a big fan of lotions. My skin is always dry and peeling and anything with Lemon in it gives me the feels. The scent of this was amazing and so is the texture. A+ from me.

Value: $6.00 or $29.00 for full size.

This product I am not familiar with. It’s from ALTERNA and it’s their Caviar CC Cream for the hair. It’s a 10-in-1 Complete Correction Leave in Treatment.

On Sephoras website it says:

CAVIAR CC Cream or “complete correction” cream is a luxe leave-in product that perfects hair in 10 different ways. It provides moisture, shine, smoothness, softness, anti-breakage, heat protection, light hold, UV protection, manageability, and strength—everything your hair needs to look absolutely beautiful, healthy, and flawless. This 10-in-one hair primer can be used alone or as a base for the layering of other styling products.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:– Parabens

– Sulfates

– Phthalates

Suggested Usage:-Apply evenly to clean, towel-dried hair and style as desired.

-Can also be used as a finisher on dry hair for added perfection.

So I’m really looking forward to trying this out. I’ve been dealing with a lot of issues with my hair for a while now relating to my Lupus. So anything that may help alleviate it gets an A+ in my book. Of it works I’ll definitely be purchasing a full size.


1.0 oz $12.00

2.5 oz $26.00

5.1 oz $42.00

And last bit not least a brand new product that was just released from Doctor Babor. This company is new to me. I’ve never heard of them but the reviews on their skincare line is amazing. They’re pretty pricy but probably for good reason. Here’s a little information from their site on this product:


Cooling 3D Hydro-Gel Eye Pads are optimally shaped to mold perfectly to the eye contours. Contains a synergistic blend of hyaluronic acid, hexapeptide-8 and second skin technology, specially developed for the delicate area around the eyes. Result: After 10-15 minutes the eye area feels refreshed, and has a more radiant, hydrated appearance.


A refreshed, more radiant and hydrated appearance.


►Cooling hydro-gel eye pads

►With hyaluronic acid

►For refreshing hydration


Cleanse the eye area and pat the skin dry before applying 3D Hydro-Gel Eye Pads. Remove the pads from the tray and place one below each eye. Leave on for about 10-15 minutes, then remove. Gently massage any residue into the skin. Tip: Cool the sachet for ten minutes before the treatment in order to increase the cooling effect.
