June & July Glambox Revealed

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Let's start with the most exciting Glambox i.e. the one that was delivered to my doorstep in July.I love it!

I love it primarily because it's got Olay. I love Olay, my mum loves Olay (it was the first product I remember seeing in her cupboard when I was a kid), my friends love Olay...who doesn't love Olay (I think I may have sounded like Oprah during her giveaways)? If you have yet to try Olay, then this Glambox is your best bet. Apart from Olay, you also discover some additional neat products (I got introduced to Caudalie in April's Glambox).

And guess what? If you take a pic of July's box and tag it with #giftofglam, Glambox has promised to deliver 5 boxes per hashtag to women's charities across UAE for Eid! Post, post, post on your Instagram, Twitter and other social networks. If you follow me on Instagram (@DarkRangerN) or Facebook, you would've noticed I did the same.

Let's unpack!


Olay Total Effects 7 Face Masks: The anti-ageing face masks from Olay that help keep wrinkles and pores at bay, smooth the skin texture, moisturize and diminish the appearance of age spots. The masks are made of cloth, so when you put them on, it looks like you've walked off the set of a horror movie. I have yet to try this but I can tell you this much- pretty sure this will work. Everything from Olay, be it their classic moisturizer to their cleansers, all have worked on mine and mum's skin.

Olay Wrinkle Relaxing Complex: While this is targeted towards older women, I discovered this magical product last year. You can witness the effect it has on your skin instantly. I am not exaggerating. The Wrinkle Relaxing Complex is almost a combination of a light-weight gel and cream that instantly blurs out certain skin flaws. You know those pesky laugh lines or emerging wrinkles on the forehead. Apply a small quantity and in a matter of few seconds, the lines/wrinkles have been filled in i.e. the skin appears more plump. You can't really pinpoint any wrinkles or laugh lines as this product works to blur them away (temporarily). I don't quite have wrinkles or large pores yet, but those who do, as a bonus, this product helps minimize the appearance of the latter. It also boosts moisture levels of the skin. Totally amazing product. As such, this product is designed for the entire face and neck. If you just want to target key areas, try Olay's 30 Second Wrinkle Filler. Say goodbye to laugh lines (temporarily). Works like magic.

Pantene Pro-V Hair Rescue Ampoules: I haven't tried it yet but it claims to repair severe hair damage. Use it after shampoo and conditioner. This is not a leave-in-conditioner.

Fragrance samples: I already own Escada's Especially Escada Elixir and love it. The other sample from Lacoste is Eau De Lacoste Sensuelle, a floral fragrance.

Max Factor Excess Volume Extreme Impact Mascara: It's a double ended mascara with different brushes at both ends. While one end is designed to give voluminous lashes, the other is a black 'lacquer' that aims to provide a glossy black coat to the lashes. I'm not  a fan of the lacquer side as I didn't witness anything different.

And here's a quick lowdown on June's Glambox. While this box wasn't that exciting, it did include my favorite cleanser from Bioderma!


Carita Serum & Night Cream: Anti-ageing line of products that helps revive the skin. I haven't tried this.

Shea Mirage Shea Butter: This is organic shea butter hence it has no fragrance as such (just letting you know that pure shea butter doesn't quite have that wonderful fragrance we are all used to in our skin and body care products. This doesn't mean it smells awful). It's a great product that keeps dry patches at bay and is a bonus on the lips esp. during this summer season. Brownie points for packaging- I love it!

Lolita Lempicka Eau de Parfum: I was just introduced to the Lolita Lempicka fragrances (review here) and this particular floral one is a delight. Don't you just love the packaging?

Bioderma Sensibio H20: Does this product need an introduction? It's a staple makeup cleanser, I use it for eye makeup removal only. One of the best cleansers ever.
