I promise to try my best and be on time with these. Just today I got my August ipsy bag, excited about that, and I have my August Julep waiting to be posted as well, will do those in the next few days, yay! So let’s talk about Glossybox.com, I honestly sometimes am not 100% happy with every item I get. But I would say most of time a good percentage of the box makes me happy. I am considering cancelling this box. I have said that about Julep, and after my next box which will be FREE yay! It’s time to take the temptation away by doing a full cancellation.
So let’s really move on. So what is in July’s Glossybox, well we have the following items.
NICKA K NEW YORK – ABSOLUTE! Make-Up Cleansing Tissues – $6.99 / 24 sheets (Full size)
BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT – Acai Deep Conditioning Masque – $40.00 / 240 ml (Full size)
FIGS & ROUGE – Cherry Blossom, Coco Rose & Mocha Orange Lip Balm – $9.00 / 12.5 ml (Full size)
BULGARI Eau Parfumee Au The Blanc Shampoo & Shower Gel – $42.00 / 6.8 OZ (Full size)
NAILS INC. – Baker Street Nail Polish – $9.50 / 10 ml (Full size)
DR. BRANDT – BB Matte With Signature Shinerase – $39.00 / 1 fl oz (Full size)
I provided size and prices for you. Not all our items are full size, but we do get a few good ones. I am always in need of make up cleansing tissues, they are handing in your bag, you can’t go wrong with them during your work day. They sent us some Nicka K New York Absolutely make up cleansing wipes, they only sent us 10 i believe, which is nice to try, but at that price I’m sure I can find something cheaper. Then we move on to the Brazilian Blowout Acai Deep Conditioning. Oh my gosh, I feel in love with this. I can honestly 100% say, I would buy this if the price was not so ridiculous! Come on lottery, let mama have some Brazilian Blowout.
For now I will settle for Pantene’s lovely conditioner, and now I am planning on trying something new and different. The Lorel’s Triple Resistance, my hair falls out easily, breaks easily, I hate that. The fact my hair passed my bum doesn’t help, seems like for me, the longer is it, the faster it falls out?? What gives? I’m planning to make it my go to, in hopes it helps. Although I did discuss getting my hair cut. My hunny doesn’t want me to cut it but I think maybe half way down my back might not be bad. I try to curl it, but it’s too long *sigh* So i just straighten it, but I like curls now and then. We’ll see
Back to Glossybox, so next we have Figs & Rouge, this is an item I can do without. it’s a lovely lip balm, I like chapstick or EOS the most, and is less expensive. Happily it was a full size they gave us, yay! But I wouldn’t buy it again. It smells yummy I have to give it that. Then we have the Bulgari Eau Parfume Au The Blanc Shampoo and shower gel. Now I have said this before, and I will say it again. Out hair and body is not the same, to be using 1 product for both. So I only used this on my hair and it smells amazing! If you smell the bottle contents only, it smells strong, but after washing your hair, it leaves it feeling so nice. I used this with the Brazilain Blowout Acai Deep conditioner, it was very nice. Skipped washing my hair, and it still smelled amazing. I’ve had other Bulgari products, but this is the first I have really liked. Although we only had a deluxe sample, it was nice to like 4 hair washing’s, and my hair is long but thin. So it was a nice deluxe sample. Again too pricey for me. But I would recommend it.
Then we have nail polish!!! I love love nail polish, so I was happy, but unhappy because they gave us a mini bottle, what is up with that, why not give us a full size, geee!! But I liked the deep blue color, was very nice. Have not tried it yet, but when I do, I will probably post about it on my nail polish blog, which you can find at LoveForPolish, I only update when I do something different to my nails, or get new polishes, or have some swatches to share. The nail polish we got was by Nails Inc, this was my first time getting one, so that is always fun. It was in the color Baker Street.
Finally we have Dr Brant’s BB Matte with Signature Shinerase. I tried a little bit, and I did like it, so happy it was a color that went well with my skin. My skin didn’t feel heavy, it felt airy and soft and that is something everyone likes, don’t want to feel weighed down with tons of products. The price blew me away, as nice as this is, it’s just too damn expensive. I have 2 years supply of Garnier BB Cream coming, so at least I’m good with that. So that is it for my box, I hope you liked it, feel free to watch my unboxing video. And I’ll see you next time!
