Final thoughts: August Myglam Bag and August Birchbox

August was the fourth month I received a Myglam Bag and a Birchbox.

The theme of the August Myglam Bag was Endless Summer.  My bag consisted of:

  1. Eclos plant-based beauty Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream – sample
  2. Eclos plant-based beauty Cellular Activator Facial Serum – sample
  3. Demeter Fragrance Library Roll on Perfume Oil – full size
  4. s.a.l.t.y cosmetics Glama-ZOID! Eye Shadow – deluxe sample
  5. Circus by Andrea’s Choice Nail Color in Ringmaster – full size
  6. Glam Gloss – full size

I really liked everything about the August Myglam Bag.  I wasn’t sure how my skin was going to react to the Eclos Moisture Therapy Cream and the Cellular Facial Serum.  My skin is oily and I didn’t know if the moisturizer was going to make it worse.  I didn’t experience any skin issues.  The Glama-ZOID eye shadow really surprised me. I looked at the color in the container and thought it was going to look chalky on me.  This color was a beautiful purple shade.  The Andrea’s Choice nail color got me attention as well.  It’s a really bright pink color.  I have other pink nail polishes yet this color still managed to be unique.  If I had to pick one thing that stood out, it would be the s.a.l.t.y cosmetics Glama-ZOID eyeshadow.  The color completely caught me off guard in a good way. 🙂

The theme for the August Birchbox was Beauty School.  My box consisted of:

  1. DDF Brightening Cleanser – deluxe sample
  2. Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy La Fleur – sample
  3. ShowStoppers Designer Fashion Tape sample
  4. Stila stay all day ™ 10-in-1 HD beauty balm, foundation & concealer – sample
  5. Schick Hydro Silk Razor

I wasn’t quite sure how to react when I first opened the August Birchbox. I was both excited and disappointed.  The DDR Brightening Cleanser did a good job of removing dirt and makeup without drying out my skin. I’ve always liked Juicy Couture fragrances. La Fleur fragrance has a nice floral scent without being overpowering.  I wish there was a bigger sample of the Stila beauty balm, foundation and concealer. The color actually matched my complexion.  What stood out for me the most was the Schick Hydro Silk Razor.  I have never used a razor with 5 blades before.
