This blog will contain spoilers about the August global glamour box by look fantastic.
If you are awaiting your box and want it to be a surprise. Stop reading now!
For all those that are still here.
I will be doing a cost break down of each product
How long it took for my box to arrive and how much I paid for the box
The box is £15
With that they stated the box has a worth of £40 or more.
They also stated you get 7 products with one or more being full size.
I purchased the box on the 2nd of August around 5:30pm
I received the box today, today is the 4th of August at around 8:30am
The box is delivered Royal Mail tracked& signed for
So it does arrive very quick!
So let's talk about my first impressions of the box
Before I even opened it, my first thought was, it was heavy, I had never received a beauty box that heavy before.
Once I opened the packaging I saw the box. It's a aqua blue colour with a birds eye view of the world on it (definitely goes with the name of the box)
It also has Global glamour, look fantastic written in the middle of the box in gold.
Not a huge fan of that, I much prefer there normal black and white boxes.
Upon opening the box, I notice 2 magazines, a Elle magazine and the normal look fantastic magazine.
Now I know why the box was so heavy.
If anyone has ever bought a Elle magazine you will know they are heavier then your normal magazine.
The price of this magazine is £4.30
Let's jump to the products!!
My first reaction was okaaaaay….
Wasn't really happy but wasn't really disappointed
What you get inside the box is
Mane 'n Tail shampoo and conditioner, these are sample sizes.
I actually really like this shampoo and conditioner but it wasn't something I expected to see inside this box. Considering you can buy the full size for around £5
Working out the size difference and how much you get in these compared to the full sizes. I worked these out to cost around
The next product I saw was the Lottie London Balm Ball lip hydrator.
I was sent the sent apple which is extremely strong.
Not something I would apply all day.
This is the only full size product inside the box and it retails for £4.99
We then have the Lord& Berry magic eyebrow pencil. It claims that due to its two-colour universal tip it suits all eyebrow colours.
I was sent the shade brunette
I am excited about trying this.
The full size retails for £14
Unfortunately there is nothing on the sample size to tell you how much product you get. So I've worked it out to be around £7 for the sample size.
We then have the Skin79 Super Beblesh Balm.
It claims to have anti wrinkle ingredients and has a SPF30.
Again there is nothing on the box/tube stating how much product you get but based on weight, I worked it out to be around £4 for this size. The full size product is £18
As you can see from my swatch, it is far to light for me.
I filled out my personal profile to state I had a medium skin tone. So I won't be using this.
Next we have the Gatineau gentle skin toner.
You may of received the cleanser instead of the toner.
This is another sample size.
It smells very very strong so it clearly contains alcohol, which is good for my skin. I have a oily skin type, but not good for those with dry skin.
Based on the amount of product you get, I've worked out this to cost £3.29
Full size is £26.36
Last but not least we have the Korres moisturising body milk.
It says various sents but I can't find a sent name on mine. It does however smell very very fruity.
Price for a full size product is £8.00
Based on weight I've worked this out to cost £1.75
In total, this box is worth a whopping…..
Giving us a profit of
Which is very disappointing considering they claimed it was worth over £40!
I with they had the prices in the magazine but obviously by prices are just estimates based on weight and how much product is in each.
I am most excited to try the eyebrow pencil and read the magazine.
The rest, I'm not that interested in.
I hope you enjoyed reading this and I hope you stick around!
I am expecting my birchbox and glossybox any day now!
I will do the same for those and at the end, based on profit, price of the box and products inside, we will see who's won the battle!
Until next time
