Inside The August Glossybox 2016


A start to a new month only means one thing... that little pink box filled with goodies is on its way to your doorstep! Augusts's box is a special one for Glossybox as they celebrate their 5th global anniversary! "Happy Birthday" When my box arrived a couple of days ago I saw Glossybox are celebrating in style, we have a collectors edition exclusive monogrammed box designed by Rae Feather and also a stunning exclusive makeup bag. Plus it is filled with "Glossy Greats" 5 of the best products chosen by subscribers.

First lets talk about this stunning makeup bag! This Mini Monogram Pochette has been exclusively designed by Rae Feather for Glossybox, I love the material and the pink and white detailing is extremely pretty. This is the perfect size to fit all of your essentials in and I will definitely be saving this for best!

My eyes lit up when I picked out the MUA Hall Of Fame Eyeshadow Palette, yes I own so many eyeshadow palettes but there is always room for more. I have never tried MUA before and I am usually cautious of drugstore eyeshadows however I have just swatched each shade and all are extremely pigmented I am really impressed. I absolutely love the shade range in this palette, I will wear these all the time. We have warm browns, golds, creams, greys and a black, everything you need for every day makeup to a night time smokey eye. I will definitely do a tutorial using this so keep your eyes out for that.

I am becoming a big face mask hoarder at the moment, I love taking the time to relax with mask and my skin always feels much better for it. Glossybox has another to add to my collection this month with the MUDMASKY® Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask. One of the first PH-balanced facial treatments, it is formulated using all natural ingredients and contains no parabens. Are you ready for it? this mask, refines and tightens pores, hydrates, brightens and smooths, AND gives skin a general boost. This mask sounds like it has it all so I could not be more excited to try it! I will be using this tonight so I will share my first thoughts on my SnapChat, zoe-mountford. 

I have always wanted to introduce a cleansing brush into skincare my routine however having very dry skin I never knew if I should or not. I am really excited to try this Spa To You Deep Pore Facial Cleansing Brush, it is very light weight and comfortable to hold and the bristles feel super soft. These soft bristles are designed to help buff away any dead skin cells for a deep gentle cleanse and together with silicone cushions this also helps massage the skin to improve microcirculation for renewed radiance. You simply wet the brush and use with your normal cleanser, I am looking forward to giving this ago it looks like tonight will be a pamper night for me.

My skin at the moment is not feeling too great so I was pleased to see a body lotion in my Glossybox. We have the Cowshed Wild Cow Invigorating Body Lotion and it smells incredible! This lotion is supposed to give you an energy buzz from ingredients such as lemongrass, Ginger and Rosemary and also be deeply moisturising with Shea and Cocoa Butters. I like that it is made in England using natural ingredients, and a nice moisturising body lotion is just what my skin is needing right now.

Glossybox are definitely kicking off their birthday celebrations in style, this has to be one of my favourite boxes! What catches your eye in the "Glossy Greats" box?
