This month marks Glossybox’s 3rd birthday (fun fact: they sell a beauty box every 12 seconds!) – so it’s an extra special box to celebrate!
I know I say this every month, but I just love how Glossyboxes are packaged. The pink boxes are just so pretty, and who doesn’t love unwrapping parcels with ribbons? You can see the special 3rd birthday sticker too!
As you can see, this is a super generous box – a full size cleanser, hand cream and highlighter as well as a travel sized Elasticizer, nail varnish and a tester of perfume are all tucked inside.
The full-size Comfort Zone Cleansing Milk is a great way to start off the box. It’s a very generous 200ml, and it’s a lovely addition to my nighttime cleansing regime. After washing my face with a cleanser, I swipe a little of the milk over my face and neck with a cotton pad to make sure every scrap of makeup is gone. It has a lovely light texture with a gentle floral scent.
It’s been a while since I’ve used Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer, and I forgot how much I like it! Before shampooing, I wet my hair and apply it to my ends and give it some time to work. When my hair is super dry and sensitized, I take it to the gym and slap a bit on before heading into the steam room. The weird looks are worth it. I’m left with soft hair which is shiny and feels super healthy.
The Figs & Rouge hand cream is such a handbag staple. Mine has a fruity mango and mandarin scent, and it sinks in quickly, leaving my hands feeling silky smooth.
Kryolan has created a special edition highlighter especially for Glossybox in a shade called Cashmere. I love the Glossybox logo on the lid, and it is the prettiest shell pink colour. It’s a great multipurpose product, and can be used on lips, cheeks and eyes. After I’ve applied my foundation and concealer, I like to tap a little across my cheekbones and eyebrow bones for a natural glowy look.
The Yves Rocher nail polish is possibly the cutest, dinkiest bottle I own. The shade is called Rose, and it is a beautiful dusky pink.
(Apologies for the blue nail in shot!) The formula applies smoothly, and I only needed two coats for it to be fully opaque. It’s a great transition colour for fall!
Last up is a tester of Lalique’s L’Amour perfume. If you’re into big, heady florals and are looking for a new autumn scent I would definitely give this a sniff!
