I've received my July Glam Box for the first time. I know it's a tad bit late to post about it but never too late. Yeah?


I like the thing about these monthly boxes that they give the opportunity to try discount beauty products or sometimes beauty product samples without being heavy on the pocket. July 2013 GlamBox were loaded with Philosophy product samples and has given me a chance to try some of their most hyped and most coveted products.

Moving to exclusive Philosophy July 2013 GlamBox :

  • Take Shelter -uva/uvb pa+++ Sunscreen and Environmental Shield by Philosophy Your skin will the love the luxurious texture and breathable finish of this sunscreen that neutralizes up to 95% of free radicals and helps shield skin from external pollution.
Sunscreen with higher SPF is always my priority cause of my notorious oily skin and for the fact that I get tan easily. However, I always go for sweat and water proof sunscreen. Philosophy Take Shelter definitely is smart choice for those who wants higher SPF.

  • Hope in a Jar High-Performance Moisturizer for All Skin Types by Philosophy Your skin's best hope for hydration, this moisturizer hydrates and refines skin, provides gentle exfoliation and helps restore your rosy glow.

Hope in a Jar is one of the most popular and multi-award winner product that one can easily use as a day and night cream after their certain cleansing regime. It has mild exfoliating effects that meant to give a certain rosy glow but for me Hope in a Jar turns out completely hopeless. The runny consistency and that awful pungent yet funny smell are two enough reasons that put me off, but I tried to manage to test it out and I'm not sure whether it's runny consistency is the reason or my skin acted funny when I applied this. My face was an oil slick within and hour and started sweating crazily right after 5-10 minutes after application.

  • Be Best Skin Perfecting BB Cream SPF 30 by Philosophy Delivers flawless looking skin and 24 hour hydration, protects against uva/uvb rays and free radicals and primes your skin and mind for a beautiful day. Available in 2 shades : light and medium.

BB Creams undoubtedly one of the MOST talked and written beauty product in the blogosphere and I've got a chance to try quite a lot of BB Creams this year. I've not tried it yet, I might give it a try only when the weather cools down a bit as these day's humidity at its peak and BB Creams are usually makes my skin sweaty and oily mess.

  • Full of Promise Dual Serum by Philosophy This dynamic a.m/p.m. protocol follows skin's natural rhythms by inspiring uplifting days that visibly defy gravity and volumizing nights that helps restore skin's youthfully sculpted appearance. Helps visibly restore volume and firmness, define the look of contours and visibly lifts your skin and outlook.

This is by far one the BEST skincare product I've tried. Full of Promise, delivered its promise wonderfully and I'm stunned by its OH-SO-AH-MAZING properties. Its a clear oil having gel consistency. Though it's oil, but once applied it instantly absorbs into skin and leaving her silky, smooth, firm, soft and supple film wrapping around your face. I surely am going to invest in full size.

  • Microdelivery Triple Acid Brightening Peel Pad by Philosophy This pre-saturated chemical peel pad reduces pigmentation spots, brightens and evens skin tone giving your smooth and soft skin. To be used once a week at night.

Chemical peel is not something a new to me. I've tried it already so when I got Microdelivery Triple Acid Brightening Peel Pad I was eager to try it out and I was actually blown away by its result. It brightens up my face by giving a soft and smooth baby skin. I am surely gonna try out the full size product.

Purity Made Simple Cleanser by Philosophy Your all in one facial cleanser, this 3-in-1 cleanser for face and eyes cleanses, lightly hydrates and gently tones the skin. Philosophy award-winning multitasking formula offers a simple one-step solution for clean, fresh skin.


I've read a lot of positive reviews about this multitasking Purity Cleanser by Philosophy but never dared to invest in its giant bottle reason being I was not sure about its performance until I tried this sample. Purity Cleanser is a thin runny pale white liquid and cleanses quite efficiently by not ripping off the essential oils from my face. It's truly a multi-purpose cleanser as removing impurities, dirt and makeup leaving skin soft, hydrated and toned. My eyeliner is solid smudge and waterproof and it's not easy to scrub it off by just rubbing the eyes off and when this cleanser gently removes it in just two swipes, is certainly a hit for me.

Overall, July 2013 GlamBox has hits and misses for me but I know after trying the samples out I'm going to invest in some full size products and may be continue my subscription.

  2. Wow, sounds like some great products. I really like that you got to try such a big assortments... I personally would have liked if they sent trial BOTTLES, instead of pouches... I always feel it takes a good week of trying something to see if it really works or not, you know... and those pouches never really work for me. But I still think I would give it a try! Thanks for sharing :)
