Review : July 2015 Glambox!

My eyes literally popped out when I saw Glambox’s July edition. It was Givenchy’s exclusive box!!. I was exhilarated since I have never even tried Givenchy before. It is so high end!. Sorry for the delayed review by the way. The box came with an outer cover that said ‘Givenchy Iconic Products’. It looks so classy.

The box came with 4 products, along with bragging rights for getting to own these beauties ♡

1) Noir Couture Mascara : The product comes in the most beautiful bottle. It’s color is black & the shade is 1 Black Satin. The wand is unlike any other I have seen before. It’s a three-balled brush!. It helps in giving clump free, gorgeous looking lashes in just a couple of strokes. The result is very natural looking and nothing over-the-top dramatic. This is already in my makeup bag and am loving it. The sample in the box is 4g while it’s full sized version (8g) is priced at AED 170.

2) Le Rouge Lipstick : I am very much a lipstick lover and this is the product that most excited me in the box. It’s a mini, stylish & luxurious looking, coral pink lipstick. The shade is 202 Rose Dressing. It’s perfect for everyday wear. It is very creamy and feels luxurious & hydrating on the lips. Just one application gives great pigmentation. It’s a soft color that looks so pretty. I wore it for about 12 hours, during which I ate & drank too. I found that for about 7 – 8 hours, the color stays on and then it fades into a pink stain on the lips.

The matte box it came in is super hot. On sliding out an inside compartment, I found the little beauty wrapped in paper which had the words Le Rouge printed on it. Loved the way it’s packaged. The sample in the box is 1.5g while it’s full sized version (3.4g) is priced at AED 170.

3) Let Soin Noir Cream : This cream is nothing like I have seen before. First of all, this face cream is a pearlescent black in color!. It contains two exceptional algae, that is known for it’s resistance against extreme climatic conditions. It helps preserve & revitalize skin’s life forces. On application, skin just drinks up this cream & looks instantly plump, replenished & youthful. What an amazing & potent skin formula!. I love it. The sample in the box is 5 ml while it’s full sized version (50 ml) is priced at a whopping AED 1,685!

4) Hydra Sparkling First Step Luminescence Moisturizing lotion : This is the only product in the box that isn’t in their signature black packaging. It comes in a blue little bottle and even though the product looks blue too, it is in fact translucent when you take it out on to the skin. It is intensely moisturizing and quite luxurious. The sample in the box is 15 ml while it’s full sized version (200 ml) is priced at AED 165.

The box didn’t contain any full sized product or vouchers, but can I even complain?. Absolutely not!. Overall, what an amazing box that gave me the chance to experience four iconic Givenchy products!. Glambox did choose a good mix of both skincare & cosmetics for this box!

Let’s donate clean water with Essential Mall & UNICEF!

Dear friends,

Shopping is not only a global phenomenon, it’s also a very satisfying one!. Don’t you agree with me?. Especially with online shopping, things just got easier. Shopping for just about anything, from the comforts of your own home, is wonderfully convenient. Now consider this : What if you could be a part of a noble cause and donate to needy children around the world, while shopping for your favorite products?. Doesn’t that just elevate the satisfaction level involved in the shopping experience?.

Let me explain more. Essential Mall is a popular shopping site in UAE. What most might not know is that Essential Mall is a non-profit global and socially conscious online shopping network. Since 2014, they have partnered with UNICEF. They donate 100% of their net profits to UNICEF’s water aid mission, where UNICEF provides clean essentialwater to where the need is greatest.

The process is a very transparent one. When you shop on Essential Mall, for every $1 AUD (AED 2.83) you spend, 1.2 days of clean water are provided to a child by UNICEF. Other than spreading awareness about this mission, in this post I also wish to give you a code!. When you use this code, you will help double the social impact. So, when spending $1 AUD, you will be able to provide 2.4 days of clean water!. It creates a huge impact in the long run.

The social impact code is naznin

With the help of the below pictures, I would like to give you a peak into how this simple process works :

Suppose you decide to buy a ‘Redness FX Calming cream for dry skin’, which costs AED 91.81. On placing it in the cart, you can see under Social Impact that with this purchase you will help provide 38 days of clean water!

Now after applying my code, naznin, you can see that you are now helping to provide 76 days of clean water!. Can you imagine the social impact you create just by shopping!. You are not spending anything extra just for charity sake. You are just going about doing a normal and simple act as shopping but at the same time making a huge difference..

Sometimes it’s easy for us to not think about the world and It’s wide array of problems. It’s so very easy to get lost in our own world and our little problems. But did you know that one child in this world dies due to consumption of contaminated water every minute?. “I am just an individual and what difference can I possibly make” might be a question on your mind. But you, yes YOU, the one reading this right now CAN make a difference. Simply shop on Essential Mall. To date, Essential Mall has created over 220,000 days of clean water.

Essential Mall stocks more than 30,000 products and also offers between 10 – 90% off!. Popular brands on the site are Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Benefit, Dr. Hauschka, Clarins, Estee Lauder, Elizabeth Arden, Givenchy, Kevyn Aucoin, Lipstick Queen, Lancome, Max Factor, NARS, Laura Mercier and many more. Also, at the bottom of the site, you can find linternational links to the same site that serves in other countries such as US, Canada, India & more.

As of 21st April 2015, Essential Mall has stopped paid advertisements and depends on social volunteers to spread the word about their noble mission. When you use my code, other than doubling the social impact, I do not get any monetary benefits from it. Also, I am not paid in any manner for doing this post. I urge you to use the code naznin while shopping on Essential Mall and also, kindly spend a couple of seconds to hit any of the share buttons below this post.
