Now, on to the items!

INCredible Cosmetics Glazin Over Lip Gloss in Everyday Selfie – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $10

(Subscribers will receive 1 of 5 shades.)

This is a bright coral that provides sheer color and lots of shine. The formula isn’t too sticky, and the color wears down nicely.

Blink Brow Bar Mini Brow Build Indian Chocolate – 2 ml Value $12.44

I saw this brand show up on Net-A-Porter’s new beauty releases section, and I wanted to try it, so this was a perfect box addition!

Word of caution – this brow gel provides a lot of pigment! I decided to use it after I had penciled in my brows to set them, but it was too much of a look. So it works almost too well! I recommend using this solo and using light strokes.

Here it is swatched beneath the lipgloss:

MIO Mio Boob Tube + Multi-Action Bust Firmer – 30 ml Value $14.40

I really like the Mio brand! Their products are ingredient-conscious, and I always like the scents, too. This formula is designed to strengthen and tone skin “from below your boobs to the top of your neck.”

Molton Brown Shower Gel in Gingerlily -100 ml Value $10.67

(Subscribers will receive 1 of 3 scents.)

This is a pricey and cult-classic body wash, so I was happy to get a good-sized sample in the box! The Gingerlily scent is lovely, and it creates a great lather, too.

Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash – 40 ml Value $7.36

This is one of those products that have a natural/herbal scent that I love, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be in the minority when it comes to loving the fragrance! The formula itself is ingredient-conscious, and so gentle, too. It doesn’t create much of a lather, but still did a great job of cleaning my skin and removing most makeup.

Erno Laszlo Firmarine Essence Lotion – 15 ml Value $5.10

You use this like a toner, but the formula isn’t your typical liquid toner. It’s a bit of a gel/liquid hybrid. It absorbs almost immediately, is gentle, and hydrating.

And this box includes the latest issue of  Elle UK Magazine:

Value $5

I love getting this mini mag with the box – it’s a fun extra, and the size is great for throwing in your purse, too.

The Verdict: This month’s box has a value of about $59.97 not counting the magazine.

I think that’s great for a $19 beauty box shipped from overseas! (And you can get the $16 a box annual price without having to pay the full amount up front, too.) Good brands and sample sizes this month, too!

To Wrap Up:

  1. Your review totally sold me on this box! And I’m excited because at the moment August is still available.

    • Its a great box Barb, I’m enjoying my Aug. box. I love the Lazlo lotion. I’ll have to buy a full size. I also like the lipgloss. I received Love Don’t Hate, it’s a very pretty berry color.

  2. I’ve been casting around to try a new beauty sub. This looks like a terrific deal for those who are not on product overload! I’ll use up my stuff and then jump on board.

  3. I had quite a few subscription boxes (7 including FFF) until a month ago.

    I’m 14 weeks pregnant now, but was already overwhelmed with product overload that I hadn’t been using due to the tiredness of the first trimester. So I stopped all beauty boxes but this one, (annual subbed just before I found out I was pregnant!) and honestly, looking at all the boxes I didn’t get this month made me feel really okay with having cancelled them. (I subscribed to baby/maternity boxes in their place though! Lol.)

    This box though, I’m so glad I kept. Being that many of these items are new brands for me, and that it’s from the UK, makes it seem so much more unique, and fun. And in 3 months I haven’t received a mascara or eyeliner! That’s something to brag about!

  4. I have at least 15 undelivered August sub. boxes. This is one of them, and it’s usually prompt and has good tracking. This month, I didn’t receive any tracking info.

    This does look like a really nice box and I like the brow gel the best, I think. The last Erno Laszlo product I received had leaked half out of the teeny bottle on its long journey.

    Does anyone know where it enters the US from Europe? I have a long pending shipment in Miami and one that seems to be moving in NYC. Both are port cities, but I’d pick NY as point of entry over Miami due to volume passing through NYC customs.

    If anyone knows, it might help me narrow down where my package is or is not. Of course, I got this one free with credits from Glossybox. Sigh.

    Thanks!

  5. I really liked this month’s box. The Erno Laszlo is probably my favorite product this month. I’m seriously considering purchasing the full size when my sample runs out. I did have some trouble with the brow gel, and I had to take it off. It really requires a light hand and I need to play around with it some more.

  6. This (along with FabFitFun) is my favourite subscription box! And this month’s box rocks perfection!! I love EVERYTHING in it!! I make my own soap, so I usually give away any body washes, but this Molto Brown shower gel is AMAZING!!! Any time I can get an Erno Laszlo product in a box, I’m a super happy girl! Look Fantastic just keeps getting better and better! I am so glad i went ahead and subbed for a full year; I will definitely up for another year when this one I done!

  7. I loved my box this month! Will use everything. And I’m an annual subscriber. Their customer service has improved a lot too!
