BeauteCo and Glossybox - August 2013

It seems like only yesterday that I was blogging about July's beauty boxes and now here we are at the end of August! This month BeauteCo have focused on natural skincare and make up, whereas Glossybox have gone for a holiday inspired highflyers theme:

BeauteCo August 2013*
Lord and berry intensity lipstick in peach gleam
S5 calm serum
Lord and berry kissproof lip colour blossom
Arran aromatics lavender and tea tree facial wash
Melvita atomiser orange blossom water

Each month with BeauteCo there are a choice of 3 boxes. I thought this month the boxes were very similar (only one product difference) but none the less, I'm really pleased with my little selection. Designed to deep cleanse and revive, the Arran aromatics face wash sounds perfect for my morning routine and given it's small size, the Melvita orange blossom face spray has gone straight into my in-flight travel bag for New York. There are 2 full sized Lord and berry lip products too, a brand that been raved about a lot in recent month, so I'm looking forward to giving them a try.

Emite make up eyelash curler
Jelly pong pong 2 in 1 shadow/liner
Urban veda daily radiance facial wash
Tresemme keratin smooth concentrated treatment shot

Moving onto Glossybox, and they've gone for a global highflyers theme this month. Each of the 5 products are sourced from a different country and they're all designed to keep you looking gorgeous on the go. I'm particularly excited about the Oceane make up remover pen. Quite often I'll have mascara smudges by the end of the day, so this could potentially be a handbag must have for me. The Jelly pong pong eyeliner sounds really good, and given how much I liked the original Tresemme treatment shot, I have high hopes for this new keratin smooth version too.

Overall, I think both companies have done really well this month. Beauty boxes can be so hit and miss, but when they do get it right, it's an absolute joy to open. For once I can actually see myself using up every single product and it's nice to be wowed by some big brands whilst at the same time being introduced to some of the smaller less known ones too.

Are you a BeauteCo/Glossybox subscriber? What did you get this month?


  1. I think I prefer BeauteCo they had some really cool stuff where as Glossy Box stuff just seemed un-usable?

  2. These beauty boxes do look great! I'm afraid of signing up and being disappointed though :(

  3. I don't really like the glossy box, every time I see one it looks like ordinary stuff that wouldn't buy normally
