Hello beauties ! This is beauty-full Thursday 🙂
As you already know I review Glamego, an Indian monthly beauty subscription box every month since November last year. I have a 12-month subscription plan as I really love this box and it is absolutely worth the money. You get 4 products per month, sometimes 5 when they have some special offer at a price of INR 399.
In case you want to know more about Glamego or want to subscribe for a beauty box please visit their website : https://glamego.com/
This is how the Glamego May 2018 box looks like. I was given the option via mail to choose the color of the lipstick and nail polish. Since I was on trip I missed the opportunity and received the default products Glamego chose for me.
The box is super cute and colorful. It has cartoons of different baby animals. I really love how this month’s box looks.
The theme of this month’s box is Mother’s day. You can post a picture on any favorite part of your city with your mom and share it on Glamego’s Instagram or Facebook.
This month I have received 5 products instead of the usual 4 since Glamego is giving out an extra product (face wash) as a free gift. The collection of items are named Beauty Emergency Kit which I found quite interesting 😀
The products I received this month are :
- Acnes Mentho-cool Pimple Defense Face wash (50g for INR 99)
- Votre Multivitamin & rejuvenating Night Cream (30gms for INR 1550)
- Seer Secrets Lip scrub (8g for INR 261)
- Bella Voste Sheer Creme Lust Lipstick – 07 Legendary (4.2g for INR 225)
- Bella Voste Premium Nail Enamel – 29 Coral Floral (9ml for INR 249)
Acnes Mentho-cool Pimple Defense Face wash :
This is the extra product I received this month. According to the card in the box, Acnes (Rohto) is a Japanese brand newly launched in India. The packaging is really good for travel purpose. The flip cap is quite tight and locks tightly.
The ingredient list and other details are mentioned at the back of the tube.
The product has a pearly white creamy formula. It lathers up pretty well when I wash my face with it. The menthol provides a cooling sensation as soon as you apply the product on your face. The brand claims that this product absorbs excess sebum, reduces inflammation and soothes skin. Apart from clearing the face and making it oil free I did not see any other significant difference. The cooling sensation does not last any further than couple of minutes after applying the face wash.
I have used this product twice, so it is difficult to say if it works on acne or not. I will keep you updated on this.
You get 50g of product for only INR 99 which is super affordable. If you have oily acne prone skin you may try this product and see if it works for you. Since it costs so less, you can easily give it a shot.
Votre Multivitamin & rejuvenating Night Cream :
Votre is a quite famous skincare brand. They have some really good products I heard beauty gurus rave about like Votre Face Serum. But I have never tried any for myself. So I was quite excited to get a night cream from this brand.
The packaging is quite basic, an all black plastic tub. The size is great to travel with. But I prefer tube or pump packaging more than tubs since they are more hygienic. There is no partition between the product and the cap which is another drawback.
The ingredient list and other details are mentioned at the back of the tub. Votre products are clinically tested & dermatological approved. The produ BUAV London.
The product is not thick as I expected, it has a shiny white whipped cream like consistency. It claims to rejuvenate, hydrate and nourish the skin. It feels a little greasy on skin, but if you blend well it gets absorbed into the skin. I wont say it is the best night cream I have ever used, I still feel nothing can beat my Face Shop Chia Seed cream. But this is not a bad product.
If you have combination to oily skin, this product will not be best in this hot summer months. If you have dry skin, it may suit you.
You can try if you want to see if it works for you. But in my opinion it is not a must have.
Seer Secrets Lip scrub :
Seer Secrets is a all natural and vegan brand. Its products are based on rare herbs and age old knowledge of Seers. I love lip scrubs from another vegan brand Juicy Chemistry, my favorite flavors are lemon & spearmint and orange candy.
The ingredient list and other details are mentioned at the back of the tub.
The packaging is basic. But I always prefer an extra layer between actual product and the cap. The lid shuts tight and the size is quite small. So it is easy to carry in your handbag.
The scrub contains Cane sugar, almond oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, liquorice extract, rambutan extract and date extract. You can taste the sweet flavor of cane sugar in your lips. It removes dead cell quite well. Also since it contains moisturizing ingredients, so it does not leave your lips dry after scrubbing. My lips feel soft, smooth and hydrated after using this product.
Since the product is completely natural and vegan, if little product accidentally goes inside your mouth there is no harm.
I quite like this product, almost equal to my Juicy Chemistry scrubs. It is quite affordable, so you can surely try this product out if you are a liquid lipstick addict like me or suffer from chapped lips.
Bella Voste Sheer Creme Lust Lipstick – 07 Legendary :
I have received one more lipstick in my past Glamego box. That was a bright pink matte pigment which I like for everyday use. This time I received a sheer creme lipstick.
The packaging is same as all Bella Voste lipsticks. The drawback of the packaging is that the bullets are not color coded.
The ingredient list and other details are mentioned on the box inside which the lipstick comes.
The lipstick claims to have a sheer creme finish. The product is creamy and quite moisturizing to the lips. It is quite pigmented and you get full opaque coverage in just 2 swipes. It is not transfer proof, but stays on my lips until I take any heavy meal.
The color is a rich coral with pink undertones. It is one of my favorite red color, specially because it lifts up any look and suits every skin tone.
I like Bella Voste lipstick quite a lot for everyday basis. They have several color options and the price is quite affordable. So you can surely try any Bella Voste lipstick of your choice.
Bella Voste Premium Nail Enamel – 29 Coral Floral :
I have received 2 Bella Voste nail enamels in my previous Glamego box. One of the red shade featured in my 2017 yearly favorite. Bella Voste nail enamels are 9+ toxic free which is great for healthy nails.
I do not like this particular color. I like bright colors on my nails usually. Apart from pinks and reds I also like bright pastel colors in summer. Sometimes I prefer nudes, but usually they are 1 to 2 shades darker than my skin tone.
This particular peachy nude is very light for my skin tone. Also I found it quite streaky. I got opaque color after 4 layers which I did not like at all.
Bella Voste nail paints are quite long lasting. So if you are planning to try their nail enamel check out the shade I mentioned in my yearly favorite.
I hope my reviews helped you in some way.
