August 2017 GLOSSYBOX Review Wrap-Up
We are so in love with August’s Stay Cool GLOSSYBOX products! They always seem to deliver just what our skin needs at just the right time. This month there were 3 amazing skin care products. First up is the Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash. This gel cleanser has teeny tiny beads that you can’t see but you will feel as you massage it over your face. It has a fresh, clean scent and washes away easily. The Bliss face wash leaves the face feeling clean and refreshed. It’s now part of our daily beauty routine.
Another skin care winner in the box is the Beauty Infusion Charcoal & Probiotics Mask. Charcoal beauty is “in” so it’s exciting to try this cleansing mask that’s also infused with probiotics. (Apparently they aren’t just for your gut!) The smooth, creamy formula makes it easy to apply the mask to your skin and neck. It dries pretty quickly and the dark gray fades into a lighter gray as it dries. One big thing we noticed is that our face didn’t feel that face-mask-itchiness you can sometimes get. We definitely felt the mask getting tight but it didn’t dry out the skin. This is one of those charcoal masks you don’t have to worry about taking off – it washes away easily to reveal brilliant and radiant skin.
The Gel Eye pads from Doctor Babor are such a luxurious treat for your eyes. These contoured eye pads provide an instant cooling feeling as soon as you put them on. You can chill the pads for 10 minutes for a stronger cooling effect. Once you put them pads on, just sit back and relax for 10-15 minutes. After just one treatment, our eyes felt revitalized and the eye area looked more hydrated and youthful.
Moving on to the 3 makeup products in the August GLOSSYBOX. First up is the new mascara from Lancôme Paris. If you’ve been following our reviews, you may recall that we’re big mascara fans and we were excited to see the BIG volume that this mascara promises. What makes this mascara awesome is that you can add layers for more volume. Each layer goes on smoothly, without any clumping. They promise up to 12x more volume vs. regular lashes and they really deliver.
Last month, GLOSSYBOX sent subscribers a limited edition doucce Freematic Blush Duo. Subscribers got to log-in to their accounts to choose the second blush for their doucce palette. We received the shade Pink Beach – a lovely pink color that adds a lovely rosiness to your cheeks when applied. You can also combine it with the Summer Sunset to create new shades.
Finally, we received the Brow Tamer by Pixi by Petra. While our brows generally keep their shape, we always have a rogue hair here or there that needs taming. The Brow Tamer is the perfect solution, allowing you to keep your perfectly shaped brows with just a few swipes. We were concerned that our might look like our brows were shiny or glossy, but not the case. It looked natural and kept unruly eyebrow hairs in check.
