Hello my lovelies!
In this series, I will be sharing with you the gorgeous goodies from my Glossybox subscription boxes, with my honest opinion of the products received. If you want to know what Glossybox is all about, you can read my last unboxing post here.
So what’s in the box?
This month we are going back to basics and GlossyHQ has cultivated a box which focused on the beauty staples we love and the ones we didn’t know we loved. Everyone has those beauty must haves that you can’t do without – for me, that would be a good body salt scrub and a kick ass concealer – and they’re the ones that just call to you.
With this in mind, GB focused their attention on ensuring we received an edit of five basics that everyone should own, namely because once you’ve got those sorted, everything else will follow effortlessly. It like building a house – once you have good foundations in place, everything else just fits.
So without further ado, here’s a peek inside the box…
I adore multi purpose balms like these. It’s a one fits all balm which you can use for anything:
- Flyaway hairs – PawPaw balm
- Dry skin – PawPaw balm
- Chapped Lips – Pawpaw balm
- Cracked hands and heels – Pawpaw balm
- Broken Heart – Pawpaw Balm (you get the idea)
Its derived from gorgeous natural ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Papaya and olive oil. It’s a really lovely non-sticky formula that melts into the skin – a handbag must have if you ask me. Plus it is cruelty free. YAY FOR BUNNIES!
I really love Caudalie, they’re a great brand whose moisturizers are great on my skin. This sorbet is no exception. It’s a lovely gel moisturizer which is great for oily combination skin like mine and is packed full of skin soothing ingredients like chamomile and grape water. Super lightweight but very moisturizing, a great addition to my spring time routine. My only issue with this product is it isn’t cruelty free. Sad Face.
A word of warning with this one – don’t use it in a freshly cleaned bathroom as you’ll need to clean every surface it touches afterwards!
I love body scrubs. nothing feels better to me than getting a handful of super gritty scrub and rubbing into my tired skin, it just makes me feel so much more refreshed and revitalized, and this is no exception. This scrub is formulated with Aloe Vera oils, Clays and active charcoal to cleanse and soothe the skin and leave you feeling gorgeously polished and clean! We got a huge pouch of the stuff too, so plenty to go around. A Huge win for me and probably my favorite product in this box. An organic, fair trade, Rain forest-Alliance Approved, cruelty free ethically sourced coffee-scrub skin care company proudly made in the UK – HUZZAH!
I am not a huge fan of these personally, mainly because I’ve had some bad experiences in the past where I’ve ended up taking off more brow than I realized, (can we all take a moment and thank the beauty goddesses for brow pencils, pomade and gel) or the strips haven’t taken any hairs at all. These however were so easy to use, had real sticky power and are shaped to fit my brows (almost) perfectly, I did trim them slightly to ensure a better fit. My brow game for May is super strong now. I couldn’t find any information about the company being cruelty free so I suspect not.
This was a welcome addition for me as I adore coral blushes, and I already own a couple of RUBY blushes. This color went so well with my snow-white complexion, and I suspect will look even better with a tan – which by the looks of the weather at the moment isn’t going to be any time soon! A gorgeous consistency and huge color payoff, so you only need a little on your brush to give your cheeks that lil *pop* of co lour. Another cruelty free brand too – yippee!
I am really happy with this month’s box. Another great edit full of things I will definitely use over the next few weeks – especially the scrub and the blusher. I’ll probably buy more scrub too because it made my skin feel so incredibly smooth and silky – not that these pins are going to see the light of day any time soon – ah the great british weather. Theres nothing in here I wouldn’t use, however unlike last month this box isn’t 100% cruelty free.
So that’s it from me for another box with Glossybox! If you are looking for a great gift, why not give the gift of Glossy? You can gift a 1,3,6, or 12 month subscription, or maybe just treat yourself?
