What's Inside The August 2013 GlossyBox

August's Glossybox theme is High Flyers - Bringing you all you need to be a flawless high flyer. Inside the box are selected skincare, hair and makeup heroes from around the globe.

So what was inside mine 

USA - Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Noir 1.5ml Sample size (full 100ml £63)

The description

Viva La Juicy highlights the succulent ripe berry notes and gourmand accents, while adding a juicy touch of honeysuckle and a sultry hint of sandalwood.

My thoughts - This is quite nice and fruity but not overly sweet so I would use this but this isn't quite my taste so I wouldn't be going out to purchase a full size bottle.

Brazil - Oceane MakeUp Remover Pen (not available in UK)

The description 

This pen delivers a mobile, mess and fuss free makeup touch-up/removal solution.

My thoughts 

I am not too bothered about this product but I will probably try it when I am using a red lipstick as I do get into some mess when applying!! Could be quite innovative.

Sweden - Emite Make Up Eyelash Curler (£20)

This has a special curved design to suit all eye shapes without touching your makeup base. I have never used an eyelash curler and am unlikely to so am not able to say if this is any good.

UK - Jelly Pong Pong 2-in1 Shadow/Liner (full size £10.50)

The description 

This creamy crayon can be used to line the eye as well as smudged and blended as a shadow.

My thoughts

The shade in my box was a nice deep, dark green. I will use this and it did feel nice when I swatched it across my skin. It didn't pull at all.

USA Tresemme Platinum Strength Concentrated Treatment Shot (15ml £1.49)

The description 

In sixty seconds will transform frizzy, fried hair into beach goddess worthy hair.

My thoughts

A nice quick treatment product, looking forward to seeing if it lives up to its claims!

Final thoughts 

After last month's great box I think this month's box was rather disappointing. I wasn't that excited when I opened the box and to be honest I haven't been tempted to use anything as of yet. However, value wise this does tick the boxes.

*PR Sample


  1. Glad to see the boxes haven't got any better in the six months since I cancelled my subscription!

    Surprised you're not an eyelash curler fan - I couldn't live without mine!

    1. No never used them!! I always had really sensitive eyes for years where if I put anything near them they would water. Hence I didn't wear eyeliner until recently.

  2. I Wasn't impressed either :-(

    1. :-( Your box was a little different from mine as well

  3. I do quite like the Juicy perfume. Like you though doubt I will wear it every day but it is better than what I expected!
