GlossyBox August 2017 Review

Hi all!  I used to subscribe to GlossyBox a few years ago, and decided to give it a go again!  At least for 3 months, anyway.  I subscribes with a 3 boxes for $30 deal.

That deal is over, but if you subscribe through August 31st, you can get a FREE Josie Maran Argan Illuminizing Powder with your first month of GlossyBox!

GlossyBox is a monthly beauty subscription that sends 5-6 makeup, skincare, and hair care products in deluxe or full sizes. It costs $21 per month, less if you purchase 3, 6 or 12 month subscriptions.

The first box I was supposed to receive was July.  But, it’s still on it’s way to me, so I am reviewing August. The items I received for August are:

This is my variation.  Some people will receive the Freeman Beauty Infusion Charcoal & Probiotics Cleansing Clay Mask instead of the Rituals product.  I’m not sure what other variations there are, besides different fragrances for the Bliss Body Butter and I believe another shade of blush.  Some subscribers were able to choose their shade of blush, but I wasn’t.  It may have been because I just signed up.

Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara

This is the item I was most excited about trying.  It’s a tiny tube, but I will use it all! This mascara really gives length and volume.  My little lashes looked huge! This is one I would definitely pick up if I’m looking for a high end mascara!

Pixi Brow Tamer

I have tried Pixi products (like their amazing Glow Tonic) before, but not the Brow Gel.  I don’t use a lot of product on my brows because they are thick and dark, but I love Brow Gel to tame them.

This works well!  It sets my brows and doesn’t leave them sticky or stiff.  My brows have stayed in place all day and look really nice.  I will be using this every day to keep my brows neat and tidy!


This is a pan, not a compact.  The July box included the compact and one blush.  This pan is supposed to join the other blush in the compact.  Hopefully I’ll be receiving my July box soon and will be able to complete it.

This shade is called Pink Beach.  It’s a little light for my skin now, but will work well in the winter and spring. It has more of a matte finish and is really pretty.  The pan is small for a blush.  It looks like the size of an eyeshadow.  I will let you know how they work together when I receive the July GlossyBox.

These both smell amazing!  They are deluxe samples, so I will probably save them for vacations or short trips.  I may stick the body butter in my purse.  I always have lotion with me.

These are both nice, but I’ve tried them before and deluxe bath samples doesn’t have a wow factor!

Doctor Babor Hydro RX 3D Gel Eye Pads

Meh.  I have so many gel pads for eyes that I might use them, but probably will give them to a friend.

My favorite items in this box are the Lancome Monsieur Big mascara and the Pixi Brow Gel.  I will use the blush once I receive the compact.

The remaining three products will be gifted or used on trips.

Altogether this is an okay GlossyBox.  I did really miss the sturdy pink boxes, so am happy to have that too!  I am glad I did the deal and am looking forward to my July and September boxes!

Do you subscribe to GlossyBox?  What did you get in your August box?
