January Glossybox

Sunday 21 January 2018

January. The month that you finally shake off all of the glitter and sequins from the festive season and you just want to let your skin breathe. It's the perfect time to give yourself a little bit of TLC after Christmas. And this month's Glossybox is perfect for just that.

The first product in my little pink box this month was the Beauty Beneath Original Formula food supplement capsules, designed to fight the signs of ageing from the inside out, and is jam-packed with antioxidants and vitamins. In all honesty, I haven't tried these, only because normally it really isn't my cup of tea. But I'm also a little paranoid of showing signs of ageing from your early 20s, so maybe I'll give them a whirl soon!

Next up is the Nailmedic nail & cuticle energizer. This couldn't have come at a more perfect time, as my cuticles especially get so dry (no, I didn't really know that was a thing until recently, either) and this is great for in between manicures.

I also received the EE Green Tea Primer, and I was really excited to try this one because of how many benefits green tea has! The primer is incredibly easy to apply, and feels quite refreshing on the face. I definitely saw a difference in how my foundation went on after using this, so that's a definite win for me!

My collection of blushers seems to be growing by the day, but Glossybox has only enabled my addiction by sending out the Apicia Paris Blush Creme. My first mistake the first time I tried it was putting way too much on - so top tip, less is definitely more when it comes to this! But the cream is super-pigmented, a honey pink shade with a pretty, subtle shimmer, and it lasts all day! It's perfect for a little pop of colour to brighten up a dreary January!

Last but not least, my favourite product from January's box! In a little brown box, from Dr Botanicals, the Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil. I am completely and utterly smitten by this product! I love facial oils anyway for nourishing my skin and locking in moisture, but this one is by far the best one I have ever tried! The rose extract makes it smell incredible, and it's so incredibly lightweight on the skin, leaving no residue or oiliness whatsoever. And my skin was SO soft afterwards, to the point where I probably could have got away without moisturising if I wanted to. I almost cried when I did a bit of research and realised that it retails at £55 normally, but I'd argue it's worth it... My bank account may be taking a hit once this bottle has been used. Oops.

Have you ever tried any of these products?

  1. I adore Dr Botanicals so much!! I used to get GlossyBox every month but was sad that they didn't include any cruelty-free or vegan products in their boxes at the time so it was a waste of money for me but I'm happy to see that they've included one of my top brands now. Thank you for sharing πŸŒΈπŸ’œ✨

    1. I must admit that I've been pretty ignorant when it comes to cruelty-free brands but I've been trying to be a little more conscious of my choices recently! Hopefully Glossybox are doing the same now too! Thank you for reading lovely xo

  2. The Dr Botanicals facial oil is one of my favourites! They also do an amazing bath oil which is just as amazing!
