Glossybox (August 2015)

Glossybox is a monthly subscription that delivers beauty products - hair care, skin care, makeup, perfumes, tools, etc. to your door for $21 per month if you buy the monthly plan, but that price goes down if you buy a 3-, 6- or 12-month subscription.
Glossybox carries some of the best brands in beauty.  Each box contains five items from full-sized to deluxe samples.  Following are the contents of my August box, and my impressions of each:

GLAMGLOW YouthCleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser (1oz, $7.80) - Designed to gently exfoliate, cleanse and renew skin to create a more youthful, glowing complexion, this transforms from a luxurious mud into a gentle and effective foaming lather that dissolves makeup and impurities and removes dead surface cells.

I liked this cleanser but I'm a big fan of mud masks.  This did clean nicely.

SPARITUAL Nail Lacquer in Fall In Love (0.5oz FULL-SIZED, $12.00) - Slow down and channel your inner zen with this creamy polish that delivers a long-lasting manicure with its patented, specially designed brush.  Thanks to its vegan, responsibly sourced ingredients, SpaRitual is ushering in a healthier way to paint your nails without the harmful chemicals.

LOLLIPOPS MAKEUP Lip Balm in Delicieuse (0.33 FULL-SIZED, $5.50) - A summer necessity for the sun-worshipping goddess in all of us, this lip balm protects against UV rays and pollution with its paraben-free formula.  It is also rich in antioxidants, which include tepescohuite extract, a Mexican plant known for its regenerative capabilities, and nutritive macadamia nut oil so chapped lips will be a thing of the past!

I'm not using the nail polish because I have SO MANY!  It'll get passed on to a worthy recipient.  The lip balm is absolutely delicious.  In addition to being moisturizing, it tastes like vanilla cookies.  Loving it!

POP BEAUTY Kajal Pen in Sooty Black (0.03oz FULL-SIZED, $10.00) - Whether you want to create a rocker chic smokey or the classic cat-eye, take your black liner to new heights with this intensely pigmented kajal pencil.  The smudgable, matte formula glides on effortlessly and can be used alone or over eyeshadow to define the eye.

MANNA KADAR COSMETICS Lash Primer (0.14oz FULL-SIZED, $24.00) - Retire those false lashes and debut a fierce flutter by adding this lash primer to your beauty routine.  Acting as a base for your mascara, this primer nourishes your lashes to prevent flaking while ensuring your look stays on from morning to night.

I used the liner for my husband's and my Halloween makeup.  The black matte color went on great for thick black coloring around my eyes, and doubled as an easy to remove lipstick for my husband.  I won't be using the lash primer.  It's just too much of an extra step in already complicated makeup routine.  Really, how many products are we supposed to be using now!!!

This box had a total value of $59.30, which is really good!  I won't be using everything but the I got a fair amount of usable stuff that made the box worth it.  Looking forward to next month!
