GlamBox –August 2017 Rocking Summer- Review

GlamBox is one of the famous subscription boxes in UAE for both men and women that gives  5+ beauty products every month. The concept is very simple and interesting. You take the subscription for 3 months, 6 months or a year. ( and every month your box of surprises arrives at your door. Well, who doesn’t like surprises 🙂

I subscribed to GlamBox for three months at the end of July. The subscription cost was AED 240 for three months (there were offers going on and I got some discount using the coupon code on the website).As I had ordered during the month end, I was not eligible for the July GlamBox. Usually, the box is shipped around 25th of each month. They send you the tracking number via email and you can schedule your delivery accordingly with the delivery agency. I was so excited and was waiting for my box for the whole month, hoping for the sneak peaks in their Instagram page. ( so much for the surprise factor!)

Finally, after much anticipation, my Glambox arrived home on 30th August.The packaging was pretty amazing. The theme of the month’s box was Rocking Summers. I quickly opened the brown box and found the pretty Pink box. Inside the pink box were the products and the black shredded papers that served as the cushion to the products.

I was heartbroken when I saw the contents of the box! Seriously, I was expecting a lot. August GlamBox had all sample sized products, except for an eyeliner.

Here is the list of the products I received:

  • MISSHA- M Perfect Cover BB cream SPF42- Sample size (10 ml) :

The BB cream was in shade 29, which was a bit dark for my skin tone. However, the product has good coverage and covers the blemishes and also keeps the skin moisturized.

  • ALTERNA- Caviar repair instant recovery shampoo (40 ml)

The product is sulfate free and infused with Caviar, that mimics the hair ceramides and helps repair the damaged strands. I tried the product (conditioner was not included in the box and I use Sebamed Anti damage conditioner). My hair seemed soft and less frizzy after the wash.

  • ARCANCIL-Starliner ultra long lasting eyeliner pencil waterproof (full-size) Priced at AED 31

Shade:001 Noir.The product has a creamy texture, is very pigmented and is an easy to apply pencil. It is waterproof. But it smeared a bit.

  • NIVEA-Powder touch spray Sample size (35 ml)

This antiperspirant spray offers an amazing fresh smell and nourishes sensitive skin. The small bottle fits is very travel-friendly.

  • HIMALAYA purifying neem face wash sample size( 50 ml)

This has been my go-to drugstore facewash for over a year now. Neem is known for its anti-bacterial properties and helps prevent acne. The face wash leaves your skin refreshed and soft. It smells wonderful too.

  • RITUALS-Happy Buddha mini shower foam sample size (50 ml)-

This bath foam has a fruity smell and smells heavenly. Perfect way to start your day 🙂

  • GLAMBOX silicon blender-

I have used this blender only once. I am better off with blending the foundation with my fingers.

Along with this, I received few gift vouchers, which I will probably never use.

My main intention of subscribing to the GlamBox was to try new products and buy them if I am comfortable using them.  I liked the Nivea spray, Himalaya Facewash, and the Rituals Shower Foam. I have just received my September GlamBox and it has really amazing products. I will write a post about them soon.
