August 2014 Glamabox Review

I often write about how much I adore foreign subscription boxes. It truly is one of my favorite things to get in the mail and I can never get enough of them. It's the thrill of opening that box and discovering brands and products that are completely new to me.


Last month, I introduced my latest foreign obsession. And I was beyond thrilled today to see the August Glamabox had finally made it's way to my door!



If you don't yet know, Glamabox, who kindly sent me this box for review,  is a premier beauty box in Asia.  I remained oblivious to this service for far to long because you aren't able to subscribe via their website if you live in the USA.  Luckily,  I found out that if you email them (cs@glamabox.com), they can set up your subscription via Paypal. The total cost with my additional shipping included, is about $23.00 per month. Which really is reasonable since your samples are generally from high end lines.


I can't get over this. Not only do they have ridiculously gorgeous packaging,  they also hold a ridiculous amount of product!  It leaves me speechless every time I open my box. I wish all beauty boxes were like this... *sigh*
Thankfully, they include a very detailed information sheet in English. Seriously... Thank God you do this, Glamabox.  I greatly appreciate it!

Now let's dive into the contents!


Libote Sakura Moisture Cream ---  this cream is pretty amazing. Made with mild natural extracts and water from Japanese hot springs, this smells heavenly and absorbs quickly to deliver moisture to the deepest dermal layers. It boosts collagen production and repairs skin to plump and diminish fine lines. Not only does it sound amazing, it's crazy using it. You rub a small amount between your fingers and it separates to leave little water droplets. Then you rub in the water droplets on your face. It's odd and wonderful all at once.


Shara Shara Precious Cream ---  made with collagen and 7 different Chinese medicinal herbs. It provides moisture and nutrients deep within the skin to restore skins resilience. Anything that smoothes skin texture and repairs damage is fine by me!

Shara Shara Original BB Cream --- This stuff is fantastic and is probably the thinnest lightest feeling BB Cream I've ever used. It covers and smoothes beautifully,  forming a protective layer over even the most sensitive skin!

Shara Shara Hinoki Spa Cream --- A very moisture rich protective cream. Made with loads of revitalizing ingredients like collagen,  ceramide,  witch hazel, argan oil,  macadamia oil, shea butter and sea weed.


PICO OK Booster Mask --- this overnight mask boosts your skins cell strength and production causing dead skin cells to shed faster. New stronger skin cells help fight off the dreaded fine lines!


PICO OK White Scale --- this product works to prevent skin deterioration and works to slow skins pigmentation production. Great to brighten up and even out your complexion!


JHB Nano Pearl Powder Biocell Mask --- I don't believe I've ever tried anything quite like this. It's made in part from 100% natural pearls that have been broken down into a powdery dust that is 4 times finer than our pores. This allows it to easily get into the skin and is a highly effective at whitening and fighting off aging. The sheet mask itself is made in a special process using coconut liquid. It's incredibly moisturizing and leaves your skin super soft and refreshed feeling.


Aubrey Organics Creme De La Shave --- yeah, so I can't resist anything pomegranate scented so of course I adore this. It's a great, really rich shave cream.  I just wish there was more in the packet!

Aubrey Organics Blue Chamomile Shampoo --- another great acent. Made with Moroccan argan oil and blue chamomile for super shiny hair!

Aubrey Organics Island Naturals Conditioner --- super intensive moisturizing power with avocado oil and mango butter to repair damaged hair.


Skin & Co Truffle Therapy Serum --- LOVE! I am a tad obsessed with this brand, having previously sampled their products before.from other boxes. It smells like heaven and aids in diminishing fine lines and roughness to leave you smooth and silky skin!


Faith In Face Egg White Whip Cleansing Foam --- super deep cleaning for your pores. It foams to a marshmallow like texture that goes into the pores and clean out the day to day gunk and grime.


Mineral Aromatics Dead Sea Body Lotion --- Firstly,  this is a great size and will be in my purse by the end of the day. Really soothing and rich. It smells lovely and gives you ultra silky skin.


Glamourflage Vera Vamp Body Lotion --- omg, the pinup girls already have me sold!  This really is amazing. It's made with loads of botanical extracts and is vitamin e balanced to reduce dark spots. It's also made with mica particles that reflect light away from imperfections.

Glamourflage Raunchy Rosie Hand Cream --- made with 7 different moisturizing elements for keeping those mitts soft and beautiful! It's also aloe infused to reduce inflammation and give a soothing effect.

Wow! I think this is one of those boxes that goes into my all time favorites list. It's absolutely packed with great products and I have to say that I got really excited about every single one of them. I love that they don't just feature Asian brands, including a really wide variety from all over the world! This box has completely replaced my Glossybox subscription,  by the way. A choice I am happy i made!
