glossybox august 2012

Alessandro Pro White Nail Polish, DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, All For Eve
Eve's Balm, Vera Valenti L’ombre a Paupiere Maragrita, Lipcote,
GlossyBox Lipstick in Glossy Pink via GlossyBox*

What with the Olympics just finishing (sobsob! Why can't they just go on forever) this month's box is themed around 'international superstars' - great products from different nations across the globe. Onto the products inside!

All For Eve 'Eve's Balm' is a multi-purpose balm for nourishing dry skin. I love the packaging - simple and cute and great for on the go as it has a little mirror inside. I love the scent too but can't put my finger on it!

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil (from Japan) is a water-soluble cleanser that I can't wait to try! Going to save it for my travels. I've heard great stuff about this so am really looking forward to using it.

The Vera Valentia palette (from Spain) isn't something I'd necessarily pick up - four green eyeshadows?! - but I'm sure I'll get some use out of it. I really hate the packaging of this, it looks so dated and really unappealing.

Lipcote (from the UK!) is a product most people have heard of, I've used it before a couple of times and I must say it works so it's handy to have another bottle.

Alessandro Pro White Nail Polish (from Germany) is a blue-tinged clear nail polish to lessen the appearance of yellow nails. I use false nails 99% of the time but will be testing this out on my toes. Really interesting concept though!

The GlossyBox lipstick looks a lovely colour (a pretty dusky rose pink), although I haven't used it yet. It's one of those suits-all shades so anyone who gets it in their box should be able to work with it!

Overall I think this is a great all-round box as there's skincare, cosmetics and a nail product in here this month. And all the products are going to get used which is obviously value for money! What do you think of this month's box?

  1. This months box looks more appealing of the previous months boxes. I unsubscribed a few months ago, and boxes like this make me wonder if I should sign up again.. I wish feel uniques box was still around!!

  4. I got the same box :). The smell of the Eve balm is something we've had before, but I can't put my finger on it either. Initially I thought Rose?

  5. I have the same box as you! Liked everything apart from the lipcote. I wonder if all lip-coats made with the same formula.

  12. Im pretty sure that eyeshadow palette is the same brand as the ones they sell in the 1euro shops in Spain!! Theyre so naff. I go to Spain often and that brand is sold in all the cheapo shops, im sure! xx

  15. I really miss this old Glossybox set up. Lust Have It took over GB a few months back here in Australia and it went downhill. All I got was facial things (different brands of the same products for 4 months in a row it got boring fast) and a lot of paperwork of cards of brands and stuff.

    I did like the samples of Marc Jacobs, but that was it. They come in little coloured bags now, and with so many of the same things month after month and no more rewards program (that I can find) I unsubbed. So disappointing as I only subbed first off was your blog. Its a shame that the old glossybox has now failed miserably.

    I'll just live vicariously through you.

  16. I felt the same way about those spanish eyeshadows. They seemed like a crappy 'filler' product. I love Glossybox but it is so hit and miss.

  22. My mum still subscribes to this and she's been disappointed since march - this one looks a bit better though - although wouldn't be enough for me to subscribe again.

    Joliebox is wonderful though - still haven't been disappointed.

  23. I tried the lipstick and didn't get on with it, it wasn't my shade and had a really patchy consistency. And I agree with the eyeshadow, HATE the packaging and not keen on the green. The nude's and browns could come in useful though, although they seem really low on pigmentation when I tried them :o/
    Not one of my fav boxes, but hey!

    Ruth :)

    Ps. I've a unique little giveaway on my blog at the mo! :)

  25. Vera valenti here in spain is sold in those shops that in england you call poundland, don't think is very reliable... ;)

  26. Looks like a nice combination. I use DHC cleansing oil sometimes as well. :)

  28. The products may be useful, however I don't think they can be classed as luxury samples which is how glossybox advertise their boxes. Lipcote and that 1 euro 80's looking e/s palette are not luxury in my opinion.

    I'd have been so disappointed with those two products!

  30. Glossybox looks so awesome. I don't think I can receive it in the Netherlands... Might make my boyfriends family in the USA collect them for me so every half year I can pick them up haha! Would you say Glossybox is better then MyGlam?
