GlossyBox August 2014 Sneak Peek

The August 2014 GlossyBox will include an exclusive Kryolan Highlighter. (Since this makeup item is being made just for GlossyBox, I’m not sure of the value). This is their third anniversary box though, so I’m hoping it will be a high-value box!

What do you think of the first spoiler?

  1. I decided I need to take a break from sub boxes for a few months….I have more samples than I know what to do with. When I cancelled Glossybox (at the time, my July box hadn’t even come in yet), I was notified that I would still get deducted for August.

    • Yeah in the fine print they say you have to cancel before the 15th of the previous month in order to not get the next month’s box. So if you wanted July to be your last box, you would have to cancel by the 15th of July to not get August’s box.

  2. Anyone else still waiting for the July box? July is nearly over!

    • Just got it today 🙂 – Much later then I thought it would show up.

    • Hi! Do u know when can i subscribe to start getting august glossybox?i tried today but it shows july still…

    • I’m still waiting too but my delivery is supposed to be the 31st or 1st.

    • This is the norm for GB. Always has been. My box was shipped yesterday & I am expected to get it on the 2nd. & I think you can usually order the August box on the 1st. That is usually when the boxes change over.

    • Yup still waiting on mine :/ glossybox and boxycharm both havent gotten to me yet! And I ordered them in June.

    • Finally got my box in the mail! Has anyone tried the products yet? I’m excited about all of them except I’m unsure about the brightening serum

      • glamglow–great product, but i wouldn’t ever buy the full size since it’s so expensive (and i’m loaded with their sample sizes)

        mitchell & peach–whimpy body “cream” but i love the milky scent (if that’s your thing

        skin inc brightening serum–lasts about a week. it suggests 3 drops per use but i tuned it down to 2 drops per use and it lasted a week and a day. i noticed some improvement. it’s also super moisturizing (i even forgot to moisturize one night, ha ha).

        malin+goetz–works really well. i was impressed.

        philip b–great mist. i use it as a leave-in conditioner and my hair looks flawless the next day.

        • I’m surprised the serum only lasted you a week. I thought the bottle was huge for a serum. That’ll last me quite awhile, I think.

          Maybe I used skin products more sparingly than a lot of people? But I use hair products at a MUCH faster rate.

          Agree, the lip balm is great. My lips were all screwed up after a reaction to an SPF lip product. That balm really helped them heal.

  3. That sounds kinda interesting injust cancelled a couple days ago but august is my last box and I’m going to try boxycharm a few times to see which I like better I love all the high end skincare items in glossybox though

  4. Eh, not too stoked for this. Will need to see more spoilers before I decide to buy or not.

  5. Liz: Have you noticed a lot of international products in glossybox? — I noticed the Skininc in the July box is made in Japan. It is nice to get something international in a box. I get MeMe boxes because I really like trying different items from different countries – So it is nice to see Glossybox has a unique high quality selection.

    • They usually have one or two international brands in each box. Usually they are UK brands. I think it definitely helps make their box unique! 🙂

      • Thank you – That makes the box a keeper, no matter how late they ship it – LOL! I like trying new international brands + They do such a great job with presentation.

        • I know – their boxes are like unwrapping presents each month! 🙂

          • 1st impressions make such a big difference – If a box is fun to open, then even if the stuff is boring or not going to be, the box is still great. Yuzen also does a nice job at 1st impressions.

  6. I’ll give it a try but I’m not very hopeful. The Laura Mercier highlighter from Sample Society doesn’t even show up on me because I’m so pale.

    • I know I’m going to have the same issue – Thank you for pointing that out – I’m going to skip opening it.

    • I had this problem too! Though, it does tone down some of the red on my pale, pale cheeks, so I’ve been using it…hoping this might be a LITTLE less shiny.
