Unbox with me: Glossybox 4th birthday edition, August 2015.

Hello my lovelies. Today's the day I'm making a big comeback after having a week's long social media/blogging break. It was needed. I needed it. I concentrated on spending some quality time with friends and family and I loved the fact I wasn't glued to my phone/laptop 24/7. I'm back now and back with vengeance :) I missed my virtual world nearly as much as I missed my friends and family when all I was doing was blogging and instagramming :) I'm back nevertheless, with new ideas that I hope you will like :)

As I'm back with new ideas, it feels last few months were Glossybox comeback as well. I told you before how disappointed I was at the quality of boxes recently. Well, July's edition (check my review here) and this month's box has successfully turned my frown into a smile. Without further ado, let's start :)

Glossybox August 2015
I'm going to start with my absolute favourite of the box. Naobay Calming Face Toner is an amazing full sized product included in the box. Few month ago I had a pleasure of testing Naobay Face Scriub and loved it so I am super excited to start testing the toner now. My current toner is on it's way so I'm going to start with Naobay in only few weeks :) Naobay is a Spanish brand of luxury and natural products. Packaging is lovely with wooden lids, it looks so smart on my bathroom shelf. It smells of citrus fruits which I personally love. It will calm and hydrate your skin thanks to chamomile and got kola extracts. It's 99.13% natural which makes it a pleasant choice in skincare. RPR £10.65 and you can get it here.

My second favourite is another product from Sass. Sass Purifying Cleanser is a hit with me. If you remember the first time we got to try Sass few months ago I got a product that I just wouldn't really use and moaned a little that I would prefer to try the cleansing product instead. Glossy Gods have heard my prayer here. Some people will probably hate this as an addition to their Glossybox but I think it's so smart. Your intimate area needs a gentle product and I'm sure you choose a dedicated cleanser already but this one in particular is SLS free which makes it a perfect choice. Another full sized product from the box, RPR £7 for 100ml and you can get it here.

Further down on my list of favourites is Manna Kadar Lash Primer. I was tempted to start using a lash primer to see if it really makes a different in condition of my eyelashes as well as the final look of my mascara. Now I have a chance to do so. It's an US brand that promises to nourish your lashes thanks to vitamin B12, leaving them conditioned and voluminous. You can use it alone at night or layer it under mascara during a day. Look out for a review once I get a chance to properly test it. Full size product RPR £14.55 and you can get it here.

When it comes to makeup bits in this months box I'm more meh than super excited. And it's not because of the products themselves but the shades I received. I will test them out, of course but the shades aren't something I would choose myself.

From left: Mememe Lipglide in Playful Peach and Emite Artist Colour Powder Blush
MeMeMe Lipglide in Playful Peach. I'm a little disappointed about this one. Firstly, lately all we get is MeMeMe or Essence in out Glossyboxes. I think we need a better variety of makeup brands. Second, it's the shade. Unless you have perfect, pearly whites this one will enhance the yellow. Peach isn't something I wear on my lips because it doesn't suit my colouring. However Lipglide itself has a nice pigmentation to it as seen on the swatches below. It goes on smoothly and wears comfortably. Full size product RPR £6.95 and you can buy it here.

Emile Artist Colour Powder Blush is something different altogether. Pigmentation is INCREDIBLE. Seriously !! You will need a VERY LIGHT HAND to use this product. Formula is so creamy. I LOVE IT. Unfortunately I'm a little too pale to use this as a blush and it will probably find a new home where it can be appreciated more. Would I buy a different shade? Without thinking it's a YES from me :) Full size RPR £20.59 and you can shop here
