Glossybox August 2016- Birthday edition ft. Rae Feather

Wohooo it’s my favourite time of the month!

So this month Glossybox celebrates their 5th birthday. When I saw the box, I was expecting some great products. Keep reading to find out if I was right. 

So this month we got a special edition packaging with some pale pink and grey design. It certainly is cute, but I would have expected a bit more for their special occasion. Nevermind the packaging lets take a look at what we got inside.

The first thing that caught my eye was the Spa To You- Deep pore cleansing brush. I really am looking forward to trying this, as back in June we received the Konjac sponge which I love using. So yeah I am happy with this little thing, and I hope it works well – I have not tried it yet. This is full size and retails at £6.99

The second thing we got is an eyeshadow palette by MUA. Now a few weeks ago I received an email from Glossybox asking me to pick my colour of the palettes available. Now to tell you the truth I cannot remember the one I picked, but after swatching these I am happy with the colours. Obviously, they are not as pigmented as urban decay or two faced palettes however I do love how sparkly they are and for the price of £4 you really cannot complain. I will be using this palette a lot and I am happy with it. – The only slight issue I would have with it is the price, as we usually get a little more high-end products, but saying that it is still something I will use on a regular basis.

Onto skincare, we got a sample size Mudmasky- Facial detox purifying recovery mask as well this month. Now I have not tried this product as I am currently using another mask and I rather not mix up my routine, however, I will definitely give it a go in the next few days/week. The full-size product is priced at £60 which in my opinion is rather pricey for a mudmask when you can get lots of great ones at your local Superdrug. Do click on the website as currently they are doing 20% off for Glossybox subscribers.

We also received another sample sized product, which is the Cowshed- Wild cow invigorating body lotion. Now I am not a massive fan of sample products, especially that this retails at £20 for a large 300ml bottle, but it smells absolutely gorgeous and I love it. I am a massive fan of moisturisers as I do have pretty dry skin so I may even purchase the full-size product once this runs out. 

Lastly, we have received a lovely little makeup bag, which has the same design as the box itself. It is exclusively designed for the 5th birthday of GLossybox and you can find  similar items on RaeFeather. Now I have a lot of makeup bags, but if you are like me and have one too many of everything in your collection, then there is never too many bags. I think this is a really cute little bag, it is relatively well made and the zip is a good quality. I will definitely find some use for this. I have seen a few people rave about the raefeather products, so I am existing to have this in my collection. The retail price of this is £20 according to the leaflet, however I am not too sure if you can actually purchase these yourself. If you do want to purchase something else from the website use the code FIRST10 for 10% off.

I hope you guys have enjoyed this months review. I am excited to try these products and was happy with the variety. As usual, I cannot wait for the September box especially that we are getting the much loved Too Faced- better than sex mascara (sample). 

Love, Fil x
