Glossybox August 2015

It's already time for August reviews on subscription boxes, where did the time go! I like to think I'm extremely honest when it comes to my reviews, whether that be a programme on Netflix, make-up products or these boxes and well here we go, I didn't like this month's box, Here is why...


Firstly, if you've read my previous reviews on Glossybox as well as my little box then you will know I am a sucker for beautiful packaging. Okay so I know the packaging isn't a reflection on the products inside but it's so plain and boring, I thought they would do something different each month. I was so disappointed to be faced with this dull looking pink box again. Packaging aside I had seen a sneak peek over on their website and they made this month's box sound incredible, after receiving it I'd say more mediocre. The advantage to this month's box is I received 4 full size products, usually you only get one so it was a bonus I have to say. 

 
Now don't get me wrong each of these products I got will come in handy at some point I'm sure, but I guess the 'wow factor' has disappeared. I didn't dislike this month's box because of the products, I guess you could say I'm now comparing Glossybox to other subscription services. However what I did like from this month is that these products came from the UK, America and Spain there are definitely a mixture of things suited to everybody in different ways, I'm sure. 

If I'm doing a fair review I will be honest and say I haven't yet used all of the products, so who knows I may find some come in extremely handy but I know one thing I already love the 'MeMeMe' Lip glide in the 'playful peach' colour, it is beautiful and is definitely a new essential in my make-up bag. I am very intrigued to try out all of the other products too, I will definitely get back to you on what I thought about them. 


By now I've usually read a few other bloggers review posts on the month's edition, but this time I decided not to till I had posted my own. Sometimes somebody else's opinion can cloud your own judgement, even if they are just beauty products! So I'm afraid this month's review is only a short one, a little disappointing too. September's edition will be my last Glossybox, but you can still expect plenty of reviews on 'My Little Box'. 

Are you a Glossybox subscriber? What did you think about this month's edition? I'd love to read some of your opinions.

    1. I mean the products are okay but I don't find them as exciting as other subscriptions, it kind of feels like you get the same old stuff each month as well. Just a little bored I guess x

  2. I know exactly what you mean about packaging! If something doesn't grab my attention, I'm not normally interested!

    I really want to subscribe to this or Birchbox though,as new products are always so exciting! :)
    Do you find they are worth the money for the majority?

    1. I'm the same, it has to look at least a little bit exciting. Last month's glossybox packaging was incredible! I guess I had high hopes for this month too. If you want to subscribe to a box I would recommend 'My Little Box' I think it has a good mix of Lifestyle/Beauty products. It isn't specifically beauty, which I like. You'll get some bad months, and other months really good with all subscription boxes but I've had far too many bad months with Glossybox, hence my decision.

      It's always nice getting a present to yourself each month! haha

  3. I totally get what you mean about the packaging a change of colour every now and then would at least be something wouldn't it, I canceled my subscription last month as I'm just so over run with empty boxes and items I'm yet to use. I'm thinking of giving birchbox or something a try soon as I do quite miss that little surprise every month x
