July Glamourbox: Special Edition Avon Box

Aaaaahhhhhh!!!!! How do I start…. How do I start this post…..  Hmmm… July Glamourbox blew me away!!

I did mention in my previous posts that I was not very satisfied with the last 4 beauty boxes that I got from Glamourbox. I thought that there was always something missing… but this July box proved to be very hard not to LOVE. It’s a special edition box filled with Avon goodies. Now, I know that I have not been very happy receiving Avon products in the past but this time though, it’s different because it’s all makeup products. The past samples I got from them were mostly lotions and creams but thankfully, they provided better and more exciting products this time. 🙂

July Glamourbox 2013

I love that Glamourbox was finally able to fill their big box with a lot of items – this box is a lot heavier compared to the previous boxes that I got. What is even better is the fact that most of the products were in full sizes. Seriously!

Let’s check each one:

Image

Skin Goodness Moisturizing BB Cream SPF20/PA++ – in Nude (Full size 18g – Php399)

According to its box, this is a luxurious silky formula that will blend seamlessly into skin and will leave a healthy, just-right coverage and a refreshed and moisturized feel to your skin. Sounds interesting! I was actually able to try another BB cream just this month and while it did help my skin look brighter, its application process was not as seamless as I hope it to be. I am excited to use this product and I hope that it will really blend effortlessly and oh yah… I hope it will not irritate my skin. 😉

Image

Ideal Luminous Blush – in Peach (Full size 6.23g – Php370)

I was very delighted to receive this one because the blush that I’m using right now is about to run out and I have been hoping (for months) to get my hands on some blush but there was none. Now, wish granted! Yey!

Image

True Color Eye Shadow Quad – in Purple Pop (Full size 5.6g – Php449)

This quad contains 4 shades, bordering on the intense side to supposedly give us a gorgeous vibrant look but I’m not too happy with the colors they chose for me. I would have preferred it if the colors were more on the subtle side but nevertheless, I would still give it a try. 🙂

Image

Anew Vitale Day Cream SPF25 (Full size 15g – Php399)

Last April, I was able to get Avon’s Anew Day Cream from BDJ but that was totally different from this one. The previous day cream was meant to give you fairer, radiant skin while this is meant to help strengthen your skin’s foundation. It claims to instantly boost your skin’s hydration by 178% and it will gradually make the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores disappear. Hmmm… very bold claim from Avon… I just hope it can really deliver. 🙂

Supershock Max Waterproof Mascara – in Black (Full size 10g – Php420)

Lately, I have been addicted to using mascara as it has proved to make my lashes appear longer and it does a wonderful job in making my eyes pop too… which is why I’m very glad to get another mascara, this time from Avon. I actually like this one more because its brush is finer compared to Maybelline’s Hyper Curl Volum’ Express – the one I got from my May BDJ box. Plus, this Avon mascara claims to deliver up to 15x volume with its breakthrough helix brush. I would really love to try this soooooooon!

Image

Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss – in Fiery Red (Full size 6.5ml – Php299)

From all the beauty boxes that I have received, both from Glamourbox and BDJ, this is the first time that I got a lip gloss so I’m thrilled. The color that they gave me is exactly what I wanted to get. Weeeeee!  🙂

Image

Ultra Color Lipstick SPF15 – in Hibiscus (Full size 3.5g – Php379)

I already have a lot of lipsticks at my disposal – thanks to my beauty box monthly subscriptions – but even with that, I am still happy to get another one. As you know, I’m allergic to a certain ingredient found in some lipsticks that, unfortunately, is unknown to me… so it’s great to be able to have a lot of lipsticks to try on.

Image

Ultra Color Rich Mega Impact Lipstick SPF15 – in Charged Cherry (Full size 3.5g – Php379) and Ultra Moisture Rich Moisure Seduction Lipstick – Red Kiss (Full size 3g – Php375)

Oooohhhh! More lipstick samples!!! I super love these samples because it’s way too cute! It’s like a travel-size kit which I can bring with me should I choose to use some of my tiny shoulder bags. Love it!!! Love it!!! Love it!!!

Image

Anew Genics Treatment Concentrate (Full size 30ml – Php1799)

I got a few samples of Avon’s Anew Genics line of products in sachets. Apparently, Anew Genics’ full size products are quite expensive and the picture above actually costs Php1799 (full-size). Wow! This cream is a serum that helps minimize visible signs of aging, wrinkles, dullness, age spots, discoloration, and loss of firmness. Its patented YouthGen Technology stimulates Youth Gene activity and helps reclaim up to 10 years of visible youth. Well, I’m 29 years old now so if you can scratch 10 years off that, I’ll be the happiest. Haha!

Image

Anew Genics Eye Cream (Full size 15ml – Php1299)

Another sample from the Anew Genics’ line is this eye cream. It’s formulated with YouthGen Technology too and it can help minimize visible signs of aging around the eyes.

Image

Anew Genics Cream (Full size 30g – Php1299)

Much like the 2 previous samples, this textured cream also minimizes the visible signs of aging with its patented YouthGen Technology.

They say that you can look up to 10 years younger in 8 weeks but I know that the samples I got will not be enough for an 8 week-use so I hope that even with just a 2g/2ml sample, I’d still see some visible results. 🙂

At last… you can actually see more listings here compared to their previous boxes… so I say, the worth of this box is definitely so much more than what I paid for, which is not really that surprising since Glamourbox already announced before that the value of the entire box is at Php2865. Actually, I tried computing it myself and if I would to include the prices of the sample sachets and sample lipsticks too, it would appear that the total value of the box is around Php3200 – that’s more than 5 times the amount that I spent. Well done Glamourbox! I think it’s safe enough to say that Glamourbox is now back on track. I just really hope that they will be able to maintain this. 🙂

Do you find this month’s box fabulous too? Do you also want one but failed to subscribe weeks ago? Don’t worry! Glamourbox still has several (maybe few) stocks left. Just go to their Plans page and subscribe. They say that as long as you can find it on that page and NOT in the boutique section, there will be no shipping fee. You have to hurry though… I think that once the good news about this box is out… people would be rushing to check their website in no time. 🙂
