Glossybox August Review - Paint The Town Chic

Glossybox August Review

I can't believe it's already time for another Glossybox review!  I always get so excited to see what the Glossybox team curates each box.  The August theme was Sun Kissed and the products selected are reminiscent of creating and keeping that back from vacation glow!  Now, onto the goods...
As soon as I opened the box, I was greeted with the perfect beach scent (seriously, I smelled coconuts, sunscreen and florals!) and it was filled with so many goodies!  All six products were new to me so I couldn't wait to investigate each further and find out what was creating that wonderful scent!
1.) Wella Oil Reflections Smoothing Oil
Right now, I'm looking for all the help I can get in the hair department!  As much as I love my ombre, it has been so drying on my hair.  This multipurpose oil is definitely a lifesaver - it can be used for conditioning (apply a few drops in damp hair), styling (apply a few drops before styling with heat products) or for finishing a look (apply after styling for a smooth finish and to intensify color reflection.)   So far I've applied it to my ends and my hair immediately felt softer and smoother.  It smells amazing as well.

2.) De Bruyere After Sun Lotion
Have I mentioned before how much I love getting products from other countries in subscription boxes?  What better way to try new products!  The lotion, made in France, is made of ingredients such as Vitamin E (protection from UV and pollution) and Monoi (a natural moisturizer and restructuring complex than smells amazing!)  Yep, this After Sun Lotion was the culprit of the delicious smelling box.  The oil has a very liquid consistency which helps with application.  It's very soothing and can see how this replenishes skin after a long day in the sun.  This product can be applied as often as possible.   I honestly don't spend that much time in the sun, but rest assured that I'll be finding any excuse to use this!
How many of us dread removing mascara at the end of the day?!  I for one hate it.  In comes Too Faced to the rescue.  I don't think you can go wrong with a Too Faced item in a subscription box, but this item in particular intrigued me because I have never seen anything like it.  This will be put to use ASAP, but judging from the reviews this product is amazing!   
At first glance this doesn't seem as exciting as the other items in the August Glossybox.  However, they are not to be underestimated!  I have a problem with hairties pulling out my hair and giving me headaches.  These Traceless Hair Rings are said to leave hair smooth and kink free while also being painless.  I gave one of these babies a quick try and just tying it twice held my hair tightly without being painful.  I'm so happy to have learned about these!  Also, I don't know how Glossybox knew that I love hot pink, but I'll want these in black as well as that will get more use.

This is the cutest thing ever.  Since I had never heard of Trifle before this, I had to look this brand up right away and seriously fell in love with the cute packaging and amazing looking products.  This lippie is just as amazing as I hoped.  It went on smooth, had the prettiest nude color with great color payoff, and had a nice fruity scent.  I also liked that this wasn't drying, a huge factor for me.  And to top it off, this is cruelty free and vegan.  I definitely need to try more from Trifle!
Now this was the item that varied from box to box.  I received the Active Mud for Face and Body.  I never used a mud mask for body, so I'm curious about that.  I'll most likely use this as a face mask.   I took a quick whiff and I love the scent  - it's reminiscent of Aveda products.  I can't wait to give this a try!

Another win for Glossybox; I really believe they get better each month!  I may have said this before, but this is by far my favorite box yet.  However the sneak peek for September hints of something related to fashion so of course I cannot wait to see spoilers!

If you've tried any of these, I'd love to hear about it below.









A huge thank you to Glossybox for providing this box in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions shared above are my own!
