In case you don’t already know what Glossy box is (which you definitely should), i’ll give you an insight.
Glossybox is a monthly subscription service costing £13.25 per month including P&P, and every month you will receive five surprise health, skin care or beauty products in a beautifully wrapped box. In my previous boxes I have received high-end brands such as Laura Mercier, Benefit, and Caudalie but also more high-street brands such as L’Oreal, Topshop, Sleek, Gosh and many more.
Would I recommend Glossybox? Definitely! I’ve never been more pleasantly surprised by such a small box. You customise your profile when you sign up to suit your skin care, hair care and make-up preferences/shades, so everything is accustom to you! You also receive products between the prices of £2-£40. You definitely get your money’s worth each time! If you’d like to sign up now, click here!
Now, I will reveal my top 5 products which I have received in Glossybox’s in the past year!
1. GOSH Lumi Drops
I received the GOSH Lumi drops in shade Peach, and my god, is this stunning.
They are along the same lines as the Cover FX custom enhancer drops, but in my opinion, a lot more natural. It is a liquid highlighter, which gives a natural, incandescent glow. You squeeze a pea sized amount, and rub into the are you wish. Personally, I use this mixed in with my foundation when I’m going for a dewy, glowy look, or, I apply it as a base coat just after my primer on my cheekbones, tip of my nose, and my brow bone to give a little dazzle. I LOVE this product.
Buy at Superdrug for £7.99 – 3 for 2 on selected cosmetics!
2. Secret Flush by Universal Beauty
I received this product in the shade Nectar, which I couldn’t be more happy about. This is a cream blush and lip stain duo, which is more than gorgeous and so creamy.
This product shines through for me, as I find it rare to come across a highly pigmented cream blush or cream lip stain. I was excited to find this in my Glossybox as this product combines both of what I need, and at an amazing quality. I use this product lightly on the apples of my cheeks for blush, blending up my cheek bone. It is so pigmented, so, you really do not want to pack it on and end up looking like an oompa-loompa (it’s okay, we’ve all been there.) This product also smells delightful, similar to the jelly bean scents. The packaging is very small and compact, easy for on-the-go use.
Buy at Glossybox for £16. (Worth more than the whole box!)
3. Safari Bronzer by Model Launcher
The Safari Bronzer is a one-of-a-kind bronzer and highlight duo. The bronzer is a perfect chocolate shade to contour, with the highlight also being a bronzey-gold, gorgeous for summer evenings. (And it’s a Safari Print, so cute!)
The reason this product has made it into my favourites is because 1. It’s blinding, as we can all see, but 2. I had NEVER heard of the brand before! I love getting a surprise subscription box, because you can discover brands that you’ve never came across… which are actually just as good as high-end brands! (and much cheaper, yay!) The bronzer blends like a dream, and doesn’t leave harsh lines. I wouldn’t recommend the highlighter if you want it to POP. However, if you’re looking for natural sun-kissed skin, look no further. I even blend them both together and apply over my face, for a healthy looking glow.
Buy at Glossybox for £21. (again.. worth more than the box!)
4. Laura Mercier Foundation primer
Do you want a primer that glides on like gel clouds? Do you want oil-free make-up that lasts all day? THIS is the primer for you. It helps your foundation to glide on smoother, giving a more expensive look with cheaper foundations.
I was so happy to have this product selected for me. I found that by the end of the day my face was so oily and I’d be rushing around powdering my face throughout the day. With this primer – no more oil! My make up looks flawless even at the end of the day and after a night out! What more could you want?
This is a little more pricey.. so you only receive a sample tube. Surprisingly, I’ve used this tube 6 or 7 times and I can still feel that’s there’s plenty left! Plus, I love it so much I’m adding the full size to my shopping list as soon as I’ve run out.
Buy it at FeelUnique for £30 (Full size).
5. Lip Crayon by Sleek
Now, if you’re anything like I was a few months ago, you don’t really see the point in Lip Crayons. And I do not blame you. Before trying out this Lip Crayon by Sleek, I had never used one as I didn’t have high expectations. However, this crayon is a gorgeous coral/peach colour, that compliments any pink/peachy lip liners.
I love this crayon because you can wear it by itself, or with lip liner, or on top of lipstick. It’s so universal, and also I haven’t had to sharpen it yet which is very promising! It’s the creamiest lip product I’ve ever used, helping your lips to feel moisturised whilst wearing. You glide the product onto your lips, and pout to see your art. This product is highly pigmented so you do not need a lot when you use it, however, I would say that it doesn’t stay on all day. You may want to carry it with you if you are planning on wearing it for a night out.
So… that’s the end!
As you can see, each month, you totally get your money’s worth back. A £21 highlight/bronzer duo for £13.25 along with 4 other fabulous products? YES PLEASE! So, fancy receiving 5 beauty products every month, beautifully wrapped and delivered to you in a pretty pink box? Of course you do!
