Glossybox - Birthday Box | August 2020

Happy 9th Birthday Glossybox!

The August 2020 box from Glossybox is a special birthday edition. It celebrates Glossybox's 9th birthday and I love how the box comes looking like a present with a real bow tied on top of the lid. It definitely does stand out as being a special box this month with some amazing products included inside. 

As with all other boxes, this birthday edition includes the usual 5 products and I received variation 8 of this box. There was a slight delay in receiving this month's box which I was notified about in advance and think that this was due to there being high demand for this special birthday edition. 

The product's I received as part of August's birthday box included:
  1. Glossybox Skincare - Eye Boost Cream
  2. Huda Beauty - Demi Matte Cream Lipstick (Boy Collector)
  3. Brushworks - HD Wonder Complexion Sponge
  4. Molton Brown - Delicious Rhubarb & Rose Shower Gel
  5. Steve Laurant - Vogue Lip Liner

All products received were full sized apart from the Molton Brown shower gel which is classed as a deluxe mini. In total this box had a retail value of £62.91, which again is amazing value considering the monthly subscription cost and the quality of the products that are received. 

Molton Brown - Delicious Rhubarb & Rose Bath & Shower Gel

This is a deluxe mini size product and is a shower gel that is a blend of rhubarb leaf, rose and grapefruit. It smells absolutely amazing and I can't wait to try this out. It can be used either in a the bath or as a shower gel which makes it the perfect product to test out. I also love the colour of the product and fits brilliantly with the theme of this month's box. 

Huda Beauty - Demi Matte Cream Lipstick

This is a creamy lipstick that dries to a satin finish from Huda Beauty. There were three different colours that you could receive as part of your box, I received a bright red colour called Boy Collector. Whilst I am not usually a fan of a bright red lip, I will definitely be trying this out to how the product works. The other two colours that could have been included were more nude colours which would have been my preference. 

Glossybox - Eye Boost Cream

Glossybox have only just launched their own skincare range so having one of the new products included in this month's box was perfect. The product received was an eye boost cream which helps to reduce the appearance of dark circles & puffiness. I'll certainly be adding this to my skin care routine as well as checking out the other products in the range that have recently been launched. 

Brushworks - HD Wonder Complexion Sponge

I love it when these boxes come with a complexion sponge as they are always something that I need. This is a 3-in-1 makeup sponge from Brushworks that is perfect for applying foundation, concealer, contour and highlighter. The shape of the sponge also enables you to use the different shape/sides of the sponge to apply make-up. A great addition to my daily make-up toolkit!

Steve Laurant - Vogue Lip Liner

The final product in this month's box was a lip liner from Steve Laurant. The colour I received was called Vogue and it looks like it is a dark red, which may work perfectly with the red Huda Beauty lipstick that I received in the box. It can be used to shape and define your lip contour and is completely waterproof and should last for up to 7 hours!

I've really enjoyed this month's Glossybox birthday and am looking forward to trying out some of these products in a make-up look soon. I love how the design of the box aligns perfectly to the month's theme, especially with the cute bow on the top! I am already excited about next month's box which from the clue provided could be themed around creating your very own a spa at home.
