glossybox august 2011

Murad Time Release Blemish Cleanser, Ahava Mineral Body Lotion, Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet Mascara, 
KMS California Hair Stay Style Boost, Rebel Nail Toe Wraps via Glossy Box

This months Glossy Box was ok in my opinion. The Ahava body lotion and the Rebel Nail Wraps are going into my "presents for others box" because they really aren't for me. I hate the way nail wraps look, and I'm not one for body lotion. But I do know that some other people in my family would like them so I'll pass them on for stocking fillers at Christmas!

I had the pleasure of meeting Daniel Sandler at the Boots event to I went to on Thursday so Im looking forward to trying the mascara out. I wont open it till my current one runs out though because I dont want it to dry out! The KMS California Hair Stay feels SO weird, literally like really cold really thick but crackly goopy kind weirdness! So hard to explain but its seriously the weirdest thing I've ever touched. Not tried it yet but I'll wash my hair tonight and give it a whirl. I also quite interested in the Murad Time Release Cleanser, I dont really have bad skin so Acne isnt a problem for me, but I'd rather be preventative than do nothing!

Glossy Box goes up next month and I'm in two minds about keeping going. I am going to a Glossy Box Event on September 1st and I'm interested to know where they are heading. Like I said in my Boudoir Prive post it all seems a bit up and down, Once again people are bashing it (no well known brands maybe?) The fickleness of bloggers really plays such a part in the successfulness (sp?) of these sorts of boxes!


  1. im not a fan of glossy box, its to meh at the moment!


  2. can't wait to hear about their event and what they have to say, i'm always in two minds about glossybox but with each review i see, i am more and more tempted to sign up x

  3. I signed up not too long ago and wasn't able to get this months Glossybox and will have to wait until September. I'm totally jealous of the nail wrap being in this months box - it sounds like my kind of product. I'm also desperate to try a new mascara so this months would have also went down really well for that reason. x

  4. Quite conflicted about whether to sign up for glossybox or boudoir prive?? choices choices

  5. I also like the product in this glossybox, I got the same stuff as you but my toe stickers are different colour. xx

  6. I've signed up and I am looking forward to getting it in september, how much is it going up by ??

  7. I never even thought about putting anything in my gift collection, I'll probably put my nail stickers in as well. I was in two minds about carrying on my subscription too, I did actually say to myself 'I'll just receive the one box and un-subscribe' but I'm really intrigued to see next months box. I probably won't carry it on for long because of the added delivery charge. I love the mascara, I think it's perfect for bottom lashes and the top if you just want them long.

  8. i love seeing the glossybox reviews because everyone has such different opinions!
    LO X

  9. I love how you're honest with the review of this months box. They can't all be winners, right? Hopefully the next one will be a little better.


  10. I actually really like both of the boxes at the moment, they both contained stuff I'd like to try, and I've never used nail wraps before so that'll be a new experience. I compared the two here:

    I think I'm eventually going to have to choose one or the other though!

  11. I like the idea of receiving a box of goodies every month but because I don't know what I'm actually paying for I'm a bit wary of signing up. I know that should be the beauty of it!!

  12. I think people just want Mac and that's it!! It seems like a good idea but it'll always be a gamble and that's why I don't do it, I'm generally a bit picky when it comes to beauty anyway.

  13. the ahir stuff is really wierd i was really confused when i used it the first time lol :D
