Unboxing: Flawless Beauty Glamourbox [August 2014]

Glamourbox just released their newest box with the theme of Flawless Beauty.


This box was actually a surprise from the Glamourbox Team. Thank you! ♥ Glamourbox is an online beauty subscription box that expertly curates at least 5 deluxe beauty samples from premium and niche beauty brands for just P595.00! Each box is unique and has a certain theme.


Flawless Beauty Glamourbox contains things that will help us be effortlessly beautiful, all the time.


In the order of my favorites, let's see what's inside the box!

Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Laguna Beach 
(Full Size 8g / P950.00)

At first, I thought this was just another lip gloss cosplaying as "liquid lipstick". Upon reading the curation card, my eyes popped when I read that it actually dries matte. Interesting! (I must be living under a rock for so long since it's my first time to hear of the brand and this product, while other beauty bloggers are swooning over it already. As they say, there's always a first time for everything.) The shade Laguna Beach is a very wearable nude pink shade, which would suit most skin tones. I have yet to test it, and I'm hoping that it won't dry out my lips so much, given its matte texture.

Plus, this item alone is worth more than the entire subscription fee of the box! 

Belo Essentials AcnePro Pimple-Fighting Gel Face Wash 
(Full Size 50ml / P99.75)
Belo Essentials AcnePro Treatment Toner 
(Full Size 60ml / P79.75)
Belo Essentials Acnepro Pimple Gel 
(Full Size 10g / P149.75)

Please don't kill me for saying this, but this Belo Essentials AcnePro 3-Step Clear Skin System was really the first thing that got me excited when I opened the box! Well, that was until I found out that Ofra Liquid Lipstick was actually a matte lippie and not a lip gloss, which automatically pushed it to the #1 spot in my favorites list. Haha!

I regretted not grabbing these Belo products when they were at Sample Room. I'm most curious about the toner since I'm looking for a product that could possibly replace my Snoe Star Night Star Bright Toner (which I find expensive at P249.00 for just 50ml). My face is dependent on salicylic acid in order to stay clear, but I will most certainly welcome purified bee venom into my routine as well. The Pimple Gel will come in handy for breakout days, while the cleanser may sit in my stash for a short while since it expires on May 2017 (hehe) and I have a lot of cleansers up for trial. I haven't tried a Belo product I didn't like yet, so I have high hopes for this range (even with its low price).

Ellana Minerals Lip Scrub in Strawberry Vanilla 
(Full Size 10g / P165.00)
Ellana Minerals Multi-Purpose Mineral Powder in Halo 
(Full Size 1g / P160.00)

I'm a fan of Ellana Minerals, but I have yet to try these two products.


I always use lip balm before going to sleep, and rid my lips of the dead skin cells in the morning by using my toothbrush or damp finger. Now, I can exfoliate my lips for real with this Lip Scrub! I love that it smells so sweet - just like candy! I bet it tastes sweet too since it makes use of sugar as an exfoliant.


Next is the Multi-Purpose Mineral Powder in Halo (some boxes contained the bronzy shade Brilliance). Halo is a lovely iridescent white shade that has pinkish tones. It's a shade I'd sport any day since I wear minimal eye makeup. The nice thing is that this shade can also double as a highlighter!

TRESemme Smooth and Shine Shampoo and Conditioner
(Full Size 440ml / P275.00 each; samples worth P56.25 each)

I'm not too thrilled with this shampoo and conditioner duo. My hair is rather choosy; if I use a regular shampoo (with a lot of sulfates), my waves would lie flat. However, I like that these came in cute chubby little bottles. I won't say that they're travel-sized, but for sample sizes, they're pretty decent. I'm liking the gorgeous floral scent as well, so I won't totally X this out of my list.

Beauty Republic Original Dramatic BB Tinted Cream
Beauty Republic Dramatic Green Touch BB Tinted Cream
(Full Size 30ml / P695.00)

Glamourbox was sweet to include these bonus items inside the box. It's my first time to encounter Beauty Republic, which is another Korean beauty brand. These BB cream samples are marketed as skincare + makeup. I'm not a fan of sachet samples since they're quite inconvenient and messy to use, although these ones came in a blister pack. However, I love collecting tiny makeup samples since they're so perfect for travel.

Subscription Fee: P595.00
Box Value: P1,716.75 (excluding the BB cream sachets)



I liking Flawless Beauty Glamourbox's selection of products, since it's balanced with makeup, skincare, and hair care products. Everything is usable for me! I may be biased since I'm already a fan of Belo and Ellana to begin with (both brands are proudly local). I'm also excited to try out new makeup brands such as Ofra and Beauty Republic - and this I think is the (more) thrilling side of beauty subscription boxes.

    1. I'll review it. Currently testing it now. So far, I like the pink shade, it's very natural!

      I usually go for sulfate-free shampoos like the ones from Human Nature. :)
