August Glossybox

This month Glossybox was even later than usual.  I didn't actually receive my box until the first week of September!  As usual..here is the pretty box that it comes in.  I just love their boxes because they're so luxe looking. This month was nice and packed!

The first item is Potion 9 Lite by Sebastian. It is a treatment styler that conditions, restores and enhances manageable styling.  I'm not exactly sure what this product is for...but it says to spray in damp hair for soft waves or defined curls.  Or blowdry for straight hair. Hmm..

Full size is 150mL retailing for $20.95.  Sample size is $6.98 for 50mL.

The next item is Biore Make Up Removing Towelettes.  The towelettes claim that they can even remove waterproof mascara.  I can't wait to try these but I think that buying a bottle of makeup remover and using a cotton pad is still a more economical way to remove makeup.

Full size is 10ct/$3.99 or 30ct/$9.99 or 60ct/$14.99.  This one is a 10ct valued at $3.99.

The next item is a lipstick by Kryolan made for Glossybox.  Truth be told I haven't even heard of the brand.  I like that they had a lipstick made for them.  It's actually a really pretty nude pink shade called Glossy Pink. I think that this colour would suit all skin tones.

No size/price information.  It's a Special Edition for Glossybox members.

Here is a closeup:

We also received a Kryolan lipstick.  It includes Vitamin E the help stimulate the skin's repair mechanism for soft lips.  I don't know a thing about this brand at all.. I'll have to do a bit of research.  I don't really like their logo..it reminds me of those creepy ceramic face masks. :P  There is no colour name on it.

Full size is 4gr for $16.99.  The product we received is full size.

This is the colour I received.  I'm really into red lipstick right now... but I think it takes a certain shade for everyone. I haven't tried this one yet and I'm worried it may be a bit bold for me.  I think sending out red lipsticks is a bit tricky.

Next was a Befine box of sample packets.  I thought this was a really neat idea!  Instead of 1 or 2 little samples...we got 5 10mL packets.  I'm super excited to try all these out.  They came with a 20% off coupon. These 2 are Single Serve Night Cream with cocoa, millet and rice bran and Single Serve Pore Refining Treatment Scrub with coconut, jojoba & citrus.

The other 3 are Single Serve Gentle Cleanser with sugar, mint, oats & rice, Single Serve Warming Clay Mask with cardamom, arnica and pomegranate and finally Single Serve Exfoliating Cleanser with brown sugar, sweet almond & oats.  What a fabulous variety to try!!

Full size is $24-$30 for 50-150mL.  I can't really price these but let's say they're all the lowest price and there's a little over 50mL.  So technically we can say this is valued at $24.

Next was a gift certificate from Trend Trunk.  I've never heard of it. Have you?

Inside was the card with a pin number.  You can get a value of up to $250.  I haven't heard if anyone has got that jackpot.  Mine was only valued at $5.  If anyone out there uses this site as I probably won't you're welcome to have it.  Just let me know.
Finally, a Blister pad.  It's a good thing to have in your purse just in case.  I've gotten blisters and then be trapped somewhere where the blister gets worse and it gets painful to walk.  However, that hasn't happened in a long time.  I'll just throw it in my purse just in case..maybe even one of my kids may need it.  I think it's kind of neat that they include a little wheel that tells you your shoe size in different parts of the world.  A great tool if you like to shop online.

Full size is 5 units for $5.99.  They said this is a full size item but there is only 1 in here.  So the value is $1.20.

This was my box this month.  I thought it was relatively good.  The approximate value is $68.16.  I gave the Glossybox lipstick a value of $10.00 considering it was made by Kryolan and their other lipstick is valued at $17.00.  I think we all pretty much received the same box for August.

There you have it!  I haven't received ANY of my September boxes yet...have any of you heard what's going on?  This week I will finally post my long awaited FALL LUXE BOX and a new to me subscription!

Have a lovely day!


  1. I can't pull off red lipstick, but for someone who can, this is a great box!! I loved the sebastian shampoo from one of the past glossyboxes, so hopefully the sebastian postion 9 works out for you...whatever it is it does....

    1. You know what, I thought I couldn't either..but there's a trick! You have to find the RIGHT shade of red for you, depending on the undertones of the red! I'll let you know how the potion works!

  2. I got the same box, but my Glossybox Lipstick was broken. They are sending me a new one next month.

    I'm having a giveaway! : http://onyxandmick.blogspot.ca/2012/09/wfmotp-part-2-fortune-cookie-fall-soap.html

    1. They're pretty good about that, but I think they ask for pics now because people were taking advantage!

  3. Trend Trunk is HORRIBLE! I used my card and I regret it. I did review on my blog if anyone is interested.
