GLOSSYBOX Secret Garden Edition

Monday, September 26, 2016

The September GLOSSYBOX is the equivalent of your favorite fashion and beauty September editions!  Known around the world as the month of fashion, September inspired the GLOSSYBOX team to curate a box influenced by the undeniable synonymy of beauty and fashion.  While i love the idea of a box themed around fashion week... or shall we say month... this box quickly became even more dear to me when i realized that it was designed by fashion illustrator Antonio Soares who is known for his avant-garde, high fashion style.  He's worked with fashion powerhouses Chanel and Dolce Gabbana and many more prestigious brands around the world.  Antonio Soares is a native of Portugal, as am i, so I'm incredibly proud of his work and will forever treasure this beautiful box!

Now lets peek inside shall we?  

Borghese Superiore State of the Art Mascara promises to lift, separate and curl your lashes with a curved wand that follows the natural shape of your eye. I personally love the fun tidbit included in the product information pamphlet.... Why do women naturally open their mouths when applying mascara, you ask?  Because it's easier not to blink when your mouth is open!

MONUspa Rosewood Reviving Mist revitalizes your skin on-the-go with an invigorating combination of lemon, rosewood and sandalwood essential oils.  This handbag must-have refreshes dull complexions and awakens the senses with just a few spritzes.  When i spray this on my skin, i close my eyes and enjoy the ultra relaxing scent.  It seriously reminds me of my favorite spa!  So good!  I love that you can also use it to set your makeup!

MODELLAUNCHER Brow Duo Pencil allows you to define with the precision of a pencil but also the smoothness of a powder for natural arches.  These types of brow pencils are typically my favorite for ease of application. GLOSSYBOX TIP:  To create the perfect brow, use small, feathery strokes to fill in sparse areas.  After that, utilize the brush to blend and smooth hairs.

KORRES Modern Greek Apothecary Volcanic Minerals Twist Eyeshadow provides vibrant color and smudge-free wear without all of the harmful additives.  KORRES Moder Greek Apothecary replaces synthetics with natural ingredients that are beneficial to the skin!  This is a full size product valued at $18 (pretty much pays for the box).  Also, perhaps my favorite product in this month's box!

Sesderma Cleanser and C-VIT Moisturizing Serum - Toss out your regular face wash and enjoy Sesderma's soothing ingredients that nourish and , seamlessly remove face and eye makeup from even the most sensitive of skins without any irritation.  GLOSSYBOX TIP: Pour cleanser on a cotton pad and clean your face until traces of impurities are removed from the skin.  After this, apply the C-VIT Moisturizing Serum that's brimming with antioxidants, set to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and boost radiance.

A wonderful new feature in GLOSSYBOX's informational pamphlet is a sneak peek at a product in next month's box.  For October GLOSSYBOX will feature Emite Make Up Lip & Cheek Tint!  One of the things i love most with beauty box subscription services is discovering new brands.  This is a brand i have never heard of but am very excited to try!  In fact, I've discovered some of my favorite brands through services like GLOSSYBOX!  Besides, the value in each box surpasses the monthly cost! 

Subscribe to GLOSSYBOX here for only $21 per month.  You can save some money by subscribing to the three, six or 12 month plan!  Either way, you'll love all the wonderful products featured in your monthly box.  It's like a little present you get to unwrap just for you!  Also, beautifully crafted boxes such as this one are also beautiful keepsakes that you can display.  Totally fun and totally worth it!
