Here’s the Box Breakdown

Everything that we received in the August Glossybox. 
This is a great mix and we got the lotion that was missing from last month’s box!

So what is all this stuff?

Our theme as show on our FULL SIZE pamphlet this month is “Sun Kissed”
And as you can guess they are all products for your day on the beach!
Invisibobble Traceless Hair Ring
Very pumped to have received these – these don’t stick in your hair or leave any weird dents when you take them out. Our hair tends to be dry and brittle and something like these are perfect
They’re in a fun pink color but sort of remind us of an old school phone cord
Trifle Cosmetics Lip Parfait Buttery Lip Cream

First off this is an adorable tube and it’s made from recycled cardboard which we appreciate immensely. 
Our color was “Guilty Pug” and was a rosy, peachy, sort of nude color that is absolutely gorgeous. This lipstick is cruelty free and infused with cocoa butter for a creamy consistency and smooth application
Unfortunately our stick came loose from the tube and wiggles a bit in there which is a little bit of a bummer. But look at the color on – it’s simply divine!
Sabon Delicate Jasmine Body Lotion
Not sure if this happened to a bunch of people but our lotion was missing from our box last month. We never bothered to get in touch with them but somehow it appeared in this month’s box which was cool and leads us to believe it happened to many
De Bruyere After Sun Lotion Monoi

This is the full size and we love the package! The smell is a little like coconut but this after sun lotion is infused with monoi flower petals that have been soaked in coconut oil giving you a good deal of hydration after you’ve been out in the sun. We love the scent but haven’t used this after sunning to really be able to tell you if it works or not
Too Faced Mascara Melt Off Cleansing Oil
This mascara remover gently removes mascara with a cleansing oil that contains both rice lipid and green tea extracts
Look at the wand! Very different!
Borghese Body Refining Polish

There was a coupon code included in the pamphlet for GlossyBox Subscribers in addition to this sample. This polish is enriched with an Acqua di Vita Complex. There were five different Borghese products that you could have received in the August Box
This has a beautiful color and the consistency isn’t overly exfoliating it’s just lightly coarse. The scent is very light and we can’t quite put our finger on it
Wella Professionals Oil Reflections Smoothing Oil
wella professionals
We can always use this in Penny’s hair so this is a definite plus but the smell is kind of strong. It does however bring out different colors of hair on people with color treated hair so we can probably use this on ourselves as well!

So in summary

We really thought this box was excellent. We were a bit bummed with last month’s box but feel that the August Glossybox has redeemed it in our eyes. A bit bummed about the lipstick but it really isn’t a huge deal in the grand scheme of things. While we couldn’t find prices for a couple of the items for just the items we could find the box total equalled $59 which isn’t bad for a $21 box!
