High-Flyers Glossybox August 2013

This month's box is filled with handpicked beauty goodies from around the World. From Sweden to Brazil, hero products that will keep you looking fab during your summer travels....

Oceane Make up Remover Pen from Brazil

For mobile, fuss-free, mess-free, makeup touch ups/removal on the go. Sounds good? I think this could be a useful addition to my stash. When it comes to winged liner, there's always one eye that goes wrong, right? Unfortunately there's no price information on this one and it's not available in the UK yet.

Jelly Pong Pong 2 in 1 shadow/liner from the UK Full Size £10.50

The perfect multi-tasker for travelling, this creamy 2 in 1 crayon can be used to line the eyes or be smudged and blended as an eyeshadow. 

Emite Make Up Eyelash Curlers from Sweden £20

Developed with professional make up artists these eyelash curlers certainly look the part and they come with three additional refill pads. I'm not really one for eyelash curlers. My lashes are long and look pretty ridic if curled, but it's been a while. I'll give them a go.

Tresemme  Keratin Smooth from USA £1.49/15ml

Concentrated rinse off treatment shot in a handy little size, ideal for summer holidays to help combat sun, sea, chlorine damaged locks.

UrbanVeda Daily Radianc Face Wash from India Sample size 20ml 

Well not from India exactly, but founded from ancient Indian principles. The UrbanVeda range has been formulated to naturally combat pollution, leaving skin less vulnerable to the environment. This daily radiance face wash contains turmeric, papaya and coriander... interesting.

Remember last year's "International Superstars" box (see it here)? Filled with cheap tat from around the World, it was the worst box ever! Fortunately one year on Glossybox have learnt their lesson. I'm not saying I'm in love with this box, but it's an interesting mix of products and I think I'll find use for all five products. Is it worth £12.95? This month, probably not.

Find out more and subscribe to Glossybox or buy one off boxes here. Anyone get the same as me?


  1. How can you say a box which costs £12.95 which includes 3 full size items one which retails at £20 Alone is not worth the price ???

    Seriously what do you expect to get in this box??? Nowhere does the site state that they are going to send full size products yet they do month after month, I would love to know what you can get on Oxford st for the same amount £12.95 ???? With box ribbon etc, not including the cost of getting to and from shops, ???

    You all expect the world for £12.95 time for a dose of reality

  2. Hi Sasha

    Thanks for your comment. It's only worth it if they're products that you'd actually use and want. It's a personal thing. Is the RRP of the box worth more than £12.95? Yes. Would I rather have spent £12.95 on products I actually want? This month, yes. The eyelash curlers are worth £20, but I have no need for them.

    I've been a subscriber to Glossybox since the start and always give an honest review of the boxes. Some months they're fabulous and I say as much. This month, I wasn't as impressed.



Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it. I read all of them and reply to any questions x
