Note: I bought this Glamour Box with my own money 🙂
I’m always curious with beauty box subscriptions and what they have to offer. I tried Salad Box and Belle de Jour so what the heck, I’ll order Glamour Box as well. I subscribed for 2 months and see if it’s worth our money. Beauty box subscriptions are fun because we don’t know what we’re getting and surprises are nice.
I’m always happy with what I receive with BDJ Boxes but looking at how classy Glamour Box’s site is, I just had to subscribe with them too!
How much: 595/month
When they said August’s Box was about “Flawless Beauty” I was expecting makeup like foundation samplers, concealers, and whatnots. I’m not super happy with what I received for August. Want to know why? Read further.
TRESemme Shampoo and Conditioner
There’s nothing special with this shampoo, I already tried it and it was okay just like your regular shampoo and conditioner.
Whut??? A Belo Acne Pro set?! Don’t get me wrong. I love Belo and I actually drafted a review for this kit but since I still have a lot of these in my kit I would most likely give this away to my siblings.
What?! Ellana’s lip scrub sticker stuck on my Belo Acne Pro facial wash.
Gah!!! The makeup! This was the best part! I’m super sad because they only gave a tiny sample of Beauty Republic Dramatic Green Touch BB Cream. I tried it on today (I almost threw it away, if you follow my instagram:kikaysikat, I posted how much I’m in love with this BB Cream) I usually think BB creams created are either too chalky, dry, hard to blend, turns dark. This one was perfect! The green tint helped so much with my chronic redness. If only they put in MORE or in BIGGER sizes I would be satisfied.Beauty Republic’s BB Cream is a dream to apply, it lasts long, does not change color on my acidic skin, effectively covers my redness, it gives a nice satin finish to my face. Not dewy, not oily, just soft and radiant. I wish they put in more or bigger samplers. It’s my favorite out of the box, I’m planning to purchase the full size. That’s how good it is. I haven’t raved for a BB Cream in a while!
It also has Ellana Lip Scrub and Ellana Powder in Halo. Did you know that I was the first customers of Ellana? I know the owner from way back when both of us were just students. I would order her mineral makeup and we’ll meet up at SM Manila hehe!
She’s so masipag and I knew she’d go far! I’m quite happy how Ellana Cosmetics is doing. I love their awake concealer and I keep a stash in my kit
Since I subscribed for 2 months, I’m still looking forward to their September box. Maybe this month’s a bit of a dud or I probably just super high expectations.
What do you think about Glamour Box this August? I’d love to hear from you.
